Situated on a small Scottish island called Kerrera, our chalet is a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of mainland life. Take time out to reconnect with each other while exploring our beautiful island, a short ferry ride from Oban.

The space
The chalet sits on the edge of a beautifully sheltered bay on the island of kerrera. After exploring the island during the day, enjoy sitting on the deck listening to the sea, warning your toes on the fire and enjoying the spectacular night skies that we are lucky enough to take for granted.

Guest access
You will have the whole chalet and garden to make your own as we do not live on site. We just ask that you treat it like you would treat your own home.

Other things to note
The island has an islanders car only policy due to the nature of our roads (you will understand once you have seen them!) so you will need to leave your car in the free car park at the ferry slip.
The nearest shop is in Oban on the mainland so stock up before you arrive.
You will need to catch the ferry, details of which can be found on www.kerrera-ferry.co.uk. The ferry only accepts cash.
There is a tea garden at the south end of the island which is definitely worth at least one but most probably your best lunch spot EVER! It is open from easter till mid september and again they only accept cash, there are no bank facilities on the island so come prepared!
Whatever your interests, the island has something for everyone and our chalet provides the ideal base from which to enjoy it.

Location

Oban, United Kingdom

Kerrera is situated 650 m from the mainland and has 47 people living on it. It is easily accessible from the mainland, however once you are on the island it feels like you are a million miles away from the crazy mainland world. Kerrera is very peaceful and tranquil, it is also very beautiful and full of the most amazing wildlife.
Kayakers will enjoy exploring our rocky coastline before beaching your boats in the sheltered bay below the chalet.
Bird watchers and animal lovers will be delighted by the sea eagles and golden eagles floating over the roof, the wild goats and the very shy roe deer, the otters lounging on the beach, the cheeky porpoises playing in the bay before carrying on up the sound, we even had a resident sperm whale for a couple of weeks which was pretty special!
Families will love the freedom to run on the beach, splash in the bay, climb on the rocks and adventure out along the rugged coastline to the castle before staggering up to the tea garden for a well earned piece of cake to help you home.
Artists.... I dont know where to begin, just bring your art pad, pencils, charcoal, paint, camera, whatever you need to try and capture the essence of this amazing island!
The fitness fanatics, we host the craggy island triathalon run by durty events, come practise the route or freestyle your own training routes. Whatever your holiday plan may be, just kick back, relax and soak up the Scottish weather.

We both live on the island, Zoe is your next door neighbour and Gill is the island postie so you will see us out and about but we will leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace, however if you need us we are both contactable by phone.
