VERY BASIC VERY REMOTE BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT LUXURIOUS bothy in an idyllic situation - exposed stonework and wood. Bring own bedding and cooking stove. Basic pots crockery cutlery etc provided. Shared outdoor toilet, indoor bath heated by solid fuel stove. Coal can be bought for £12 a bucket available if requested well in in advance from Rhoda's shop on Gometra's official website. Suits kayakers, experienced hillwalkers and island baggers. Please see reviews for more feedback.

The space
This is a VERY BASIC NO LUXE bothy - do not expect modernised comfort. Gometra is off-grid - that means no mains electricity. You will need to bring bedding, food, cooking appliances and fuel (coal can be bought £12 a bucket in advance - contact details on Gometra's official website). We do not have a cleaner and ask people to leave as they expect to find it. This is reflected in the low price.

Guest access
Important : Meant for kayakers, island baggers and hill walkers on a limited budget, not suitable for car or public transport based travellers due both to unmodernised bothy and 7 mile walk in from nearest road and ferry (usually 9-5 in summer (not Saturday, and Sunday only in July and August); and at 9 and 3.30 M-F only on school term days in winter) at Ulva Ferry. Ulva Ferry Community Bus runs on some days from Salen to Ulva Ferry - please see their website. Almost always has cold running water, hot water only from solid fuel stove - kayakers sometimes bring own fuel. Shared outside toilet.

Other things to note
Truly off-grid - no mains electricity, no gas.
