Covid-19 Coronavirus:

For the time being, to protect our very fragile health service and the many older and vulnerable residents of this small island, I am not taking any new bookings for May/June, when I will review again. Who knows what lies ahead for all of us, but please save my wee Bothy to your favourites and when the time is right, come and visit us. In the meantime, stay safe, stay home, wash your hands and use the time to plan your future trip to Skye. Thank you.

お部屋
The Strawbale Bothy is made from simple, natural materials; wood, clay, straw and lime, there are no nasty chemicals, no concrete, and where we have had to use plastic, it is to an absolute minimum. A perfect place for two to slow down and watch the view.

We’re sure you will love the feel of staying in a natural home, the softness of the clay plaster walls, the luminous light of the lime washed shower room and the warmth of local larch wood.There is a light and airy living area with an electric stove, Bluetooth speaker, books and games to keep you entertained if you get bored of the stunning views over to the hills of Knoydart. There is a small kitchen area with induction hob, combination microwave oven, washer dryer and all the other things you would expect to find.
There is a cosy box bed, dressed with a duck down duvet, soft, relaxed French linen and Egyptian cotton. From your bed you can stare at the stars at night or watch the sunrise in the morning. You also have a spacious en suite shower room with traditional flush toilet.

The Strawbale Bothy is exactly what it says, it is a loadbearing strawbale building built on foundations made from car tyres filled with rammed gravel.
We’ve tried to make sure this wee building has as low an impact on the planet as possible. We have not used any concrete in its construction, practically everything can be recycled or biodegradable, we've only used plastic where there has been no alternatives or the alternatives are a bit, well - yeuch!
Try plastic free showering with handmade soap and solid shampoo by local Scottish artisans. Feel doubly virtuous by washing up and only using natural bristle brushes and cotton dish cloths.

Booking and Availability:

Covid-19 Coronavirus:
It is a worrying, uncertain time so if you are thinking of booking, here are a few points to help you decide:
I have made some changes to the Bothy. My place is frequently rated as 'sparkling clean', but I have introduced some additional, non environmentally friendly measures, just to make sure. This includes cleaning with bleach based disinfectants and single use paper cloths. Replacing artisan locally made solid soap with liquid soap in single use plastic bottles (when I can get them). Replacing vintage and handmade crockery and cutlery with dishwasher proof items - all crockery and cutlery goes through a hot wash in a dishwasher between guests. Washing bedlinen and towels at a higher temperature with biological powder. Lining bins with single use plastic liners.
My cancellation policy will remain as 'Strict'. However, please check Airbnb's Extenuation Circumstances Policy. This tells you when you can get a full refund if your trip is affected by the Coronavirus. I really believe this to be fair. If you contract the virus, or have to self isolate, or your flights have been cancelled, or the Government has imposed restrictions, or your doctor has advised you not to travel, then you can claim a full refund under the Policy (correct at the time of writing 14 March). Alternatively, if you do book and then decide you would prefer not travel at that time, rather than cancel your trip and possibly lose your money, you could consider changing your dates until later in the year, just request a 'change of dates' and subject to availability, I'd be happy to organise it. If however, you wish to cancel because, for example, the weather is not looking good, then the usual cancellation policy will apply.


So, if you are curious about what it would be like to stay in a home made without concrete, bricks and plastic, and stay on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, we would love to meet you.

The bothy is all yours to enjoy.

その他の特記事項
Now, there are a few things you need to know before you book. There is nothing worse than a holiday you've been looking forward to that does not living up to expectations, so please read on.

Access: The bothy is down a very steep, rough and sometimes slippery track. This is not the place for high heels or anyone who is a little unsteady on their feet!

External landscaping: We plan to have decking to the front of the bothy, but this year, it is just rough ground, with a couple of seats to take in the fabulous view over the ‘undeveloped' garden to the sea and hills beyond. Parking is on the road until the dedicated parking bay is built, another thing on the 'to do list'!

Allergies: There is cosy duck down duvet on the bed, but if you would prefer a hypoallergenic one, please let me know when booking. There are also hens and a dog on the croft.

Internet, wifi and all that stuff: There is wifi in the bothy, but it is slow. You will find a range of board games, books, magazines, and of course, that view to watch.

Hello there. I was born in Edinburgh, and I moved to Skye over 8 years ago to begin crofting. Crofting is unique to the Highlands of Scotland. A croft is a small piece of land and crofting is often known as subsistence farming - very small scale, low impact and generally environmentally friendly form of farming. I have begun to clear the land, plant fruit, vegetables and trees. During the summer of 2015 and 2016 I hosted bed and breakfast guests in my own wee croft house. I had no idea what fun that would be, and have made some good friends along the way. For the last couple of years, my son and I have been building The Strawbale Bothy. I felt it was time to ‘put my money where my mouth is’ as they say, and see if it is possible to build a beautiful, functional home without the planet paying the cost. This has been a labour of love, and everything we did was new to us, from building with straw bales, to working with clay and cutting, shaping and finishing the beautiful live edge window ledges and shelves. When I’m not working, I love to spend time walking and exploring on Skye and the surrounding areas with my dog, Mia. So we know a lot of the ‘insider places’ that are not in the guide books, just ask us.

I live just next door and I work full time, so I will be around in the evenings and at weekends. I will always pop round to make sure you have settled in okay and answer any questions you may have, otherwise I will leave you to enjoy your stay.
But if there is anything I can help you with during your stay, whether it is sharing some of my favourite places to visit, borrowing some wellies or maps, please just ask.
