This wonderful croft on Easdale Island is the ultimate "getaway from it all" escape for the perfect adventure holiday.
Built in the 1800's the cottage has been designed to reflect the island’s slate-quarrying heritage. The property comprises of two good size double bedrooms, a family bathroom, modern kitchen with all the utensils needed for your stay and a warm living room with a large log burning stove, capable of heating the whole house to give that extra cosy fee.
The large, spacious rear garden and patio (accessed from the living area), has unlimited stunning sea views across the Atlantic towards the Isle of Mull. You can sit all day and watch the abundance of wildlife and many Yacht’s sailing by or just sit and take in the sea air while having your morning coffee/tea. In addition to this is a further front facing garden area with views over the island and onto the mainland for more bird watching.
A main feature of the cottage is being able to walk straight from the rear garden along walks to find spectacular old slate mine quarry pools, it really is just breath-taking!
Easdale Cottage is situated 16 miles from Oban "Gateway to the Isles”. When driving along the road taking in all its beauty, you pass over the world-famous Clachan Bridge, also know as "The Bridge over the Atlantic". Here you will find your first local restaurant to dine at during your stay – Tigh an Truish. Next you arrive in Seil, in the square you can dine out at the Oyster Bar & Restaurant serving great pub meals and Scottish real Ales, while enjoying spectacular views over to Scarba and Jura to name a few!
Accessed by foot from the mainland of Seil, you catch the small ferry (£2.50 return) for 3 minutes and walk the last 300 yards to the cottage with your unique luggage transporter - your very own wheelbarrow!.
A warm friendly welcome awaits at your next pit stop for great homemade food and drink, The Puffer Bar & Restaurant. Located just as leave the ferry and only a short 2 minute walk from your cottage. This place has a real peace and tranquillity about it, with a great atmosphere to unwind.
Easdale island is unique. The smallest permanently inhabited inner Hebridean island, it was once the heart of Scotland’s world-renowned slate mining industry.
