About Crofters Cottage

The accommodation at the cottage is of the highest standard. It has underfloor heating throughout - superb on bare feet! A peat burning stove sits in the fireplace of the living room, creating a relaxing environment for your romantic getaway.

The cottage has been built to the Green Tourism Business Scheme, using old disused stones from local derelict buildings. The cottage is powered by ‘Ground Source Heat’. This simply means the power is taken from deep within the ground and uses very little ‘local grid’ electricity to operate.

The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, washing machine/tumble drier, dishwasher, built in cooker and a microwave oven. Of course, if you don’t fancy cooking, there is an abundance of fantastic restaurants and bistros on the island to try.

The comfortable living area is on open plan with the kitchen, with the peat burning stove a key feature to this area. There is plenty to keep you occupied on wet days with ample books, DVDs and games. The flat screen TV is in keeping with the other luxury features of this outstanding cottage. Internet access and satellite TV is also available.

The bedroom has a king size bed and plenty of storage space for placing your belongings, helping you to settle in to your holiday accommodation. The bedroom is bright and airy, with two windows throug which to take in the breathtaking scenery as you waken in the morning.

The bathroom is ‘an unexpected pleasure’ complete with a steam/shower cubicle (with built in radio) adding an extra luxury to this already captivating cottage. The stand alone bath is large enough for two to bathe in! Imagine soaking in a warm, deep bath, surrounded by candles, with a chilled glass of bubbly at the end of a busy day – pure indulgence whilst on holiday!

Outside the cottage is a BBQ, garden table and chairs for the use of our guests. Enjoy the panoramic evening sunsets from the front of the cottage – one of life’s unforgettable views.

“After travelling thru atrocious weather, including hailstorms,we arrived at the "BLACKHOUSE" as the sun appeared. Not only did that lift our spirits but on entering the cottage we were met by what can only be described as "5 star" luxury. We were amused by Ali,s comment in the information book asking for any recommendations for improvement! Apart from a maid and a butler we could not think of one! We have been blessed with fantastic weather, the warmth of which can only be surpassed by the warmth and generosity of Ali and Brenda's hospitality.
We,ll be back
