An old croft house, rough-as-guts, hidden on a hillside between the Five Sisters of Kintail and Eilean Donan Castle.
Fall asleep to the sound of a waterfall.
Feel the warmth and smell the wood smoke of a crackling open fire.
Located near Dornie, Eilean Donan Castle and the Five Sisters of Kintail, guests can take day trips to Applecross, Glenelg, Loch Ness and many glorious spots on the Isle of Skye. There are mountains a plenty for climbing and stunning walks and strolls to suit all types.
I am a filmmaker who has recently returned home to the Highlands to help my father on the croft*. I love being back in a place where walking through the village takes longer than it should because you chat to so many folk along the way.
I am passionate about telling stories that reflect what it means to be human and I am passionate about working with the land in a small-scale, sustainable, caring way, reconnecting ourselves with nature.
On the croft we believe in getting back to basics and feeling the elements on your skin and in your soul. We have set up the old croft house as a bothy to give travellers the experience of an open fire, the sound of rain on a tin roof, the smell of wood smoke, the taste of fresh spring water and the freedom to walk amongst the beautiful landscape. We hope they will leave feeling earthed and refreshed, taking a little bit of the Highlands in their soul.
