With wide, open views out to the Isle of Rum, life in Sweeney's bothy is cosy, simple and completely relaxing. The bothy has everything you need - a wood burning stove, a small but well equipped kitchen, a super-comfy double bed, a table, an armchair and a library snug with an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction, maps and books about Eigg.

Sweeney's Bothy sits beneath the cliffs of Cleadale in the north east of the Isle of Eigg, a community owned island with spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife. Climb to the top of the incredible and unique Sgurr of Eigg for truly fantastic views. Paddle or swim off the magical Singing Sands or in Laig Bay. Then return to Sweeney's, eat and sleep well. Perfection.

Sweeney's Bothy is heated with a wood burning stove that has a hot-plate and an oven for cooking. The kitchen has a single gas ring and sink. There is no fridge, but a cool-box with freezer blocks is provided. The bothy has basics like teas, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, herbs, spices, olive oil, matches, foil, kindling and washing up liquid.

The mezzanine bed is accessed by ladder, but a simple mattress can also be provided for the floor - please let us know if you would like one. All bedding is supplied and there are a couple of extra blankets if you’re worried you might be cold (you won’t be, the bothy is very cosy!). The bed has an organic wool duvet and mattress topper. We provide towels and a dressing gown.

The bothy is connected to a water supply that comes from a natural spring. It is safe to drink. An outdoor shower is installed on the decking outside the bothy, with hot water supplied by a back-boiler on the stove and a solar hot water panel. There is no washing machine.

Midge screens on all the windows, meaning you can keep cool & midge free on warm summer nights.

There is a separate composting toilet 15 metres from the bothy. Toilet roll is provided.

The bothy is off-grid, meaning it has a photovoltaic (PV) panel generating enough electricity to provide lighting and allow you to charge a mobile phone/laptop/camera. There isn’t enough to run a hair dryer, hair straighteners or similar items that make heat or require a lot of power.

We ask our guests to separate their bottles, tins and plastic milk cartons, and to compost vegetable waste.

The bothy is 150 metres up a steepish path. We will help you with your luggage. Suitcases on wheels can be pulled up there, but the bigger they are, the harder it is! We recommend carry bags or rukcsacks or small wheel cases.

There is no internet or 3G access at the bothy, but there is an internet cafe at the Pier, and wifi at the learning centre in the Primary School. There is no mobile phone reception. The nearest point for mobile signal (depending on your network) is in the middle of the island, two miles away. Emergency calls can be made to and from our house.
