Laig Beach Bothy sits right on the beach of Laig Bay. With the Isle of Rum rising majestically out of the sea beyond, Laig beach is one of the most spectacular in Scotland. It's perfect for swimming and long, lazy paddles. Made up of a mixture of quartz black basalt and white shell, the sand constantly changes with swirling lines and fern-like patterns. Photographers and children love it.
Its open-plan living space has a large sliding glass door and floor to ceiling windows, making the most of the views of Rum. A large wooden deck area extends the living space out into the open - perfect for sunny morning breakfasts and evening drinks. The sea breeze keeps the midges at bay.
Sleeping up to four people in a ground floor double room and mezzanine twin room; with solid oak flooring and custom built furniture, Laig Beach Bothy is designed to be light, bright and contemporary. There's even a sofa bed if you want to squeeze another one in. We've made our bathroom that little bit more luxurious by adding cosy underfloor heating.
Cosy wood burning stove, solar hot water heating and Eigg's own renewable electricity means you'll be warm as toast as well as eco-friendly.
Laig Beach Bothy sits on the very edge of Laig Beach, tucked away from the main road but within easy walking or cycling distance from Cleadale and the rest of Eigg. If you don't want to venture out to the shop, fresh bread, herbs, eggs, salad and vegetables can be delivered from our farm.
Laig Beach Bothy has free wifi. All bed linen and towels are provided. The kitchen is well equipped so you can make the most of local fish and other produce available.
We're sorry, but as Laig Beach Bothy is on a working sheep farm, dogs are not permitted.
We will pick you up when you arrive on Eigg pier and take you back again at the end of your holiday and provide two bikes for guests to enjoy exploring the island themselves.
