'Shindig' is a traditional stone croft house found at the most Southerly part of Skye, at Point of Sleat. A step up from camping, it's a basic bothy-style experience, although with hot running water and gas oven. No electricity, a leisure battery provides some light, candles provide the rest! There's a pristine white sand beach 2 minutes walk from the house. Stunning seascape views to Rum /Eigg. Use of kayak and fishing gear. This is more "hands-on" than your normal holiday cottage. Please note

Miejsce
Located remotely, off grid, 2 miles from the village of Aird, near Armadale in Sleat, Skye and accessible only on foot, the cottage is a very basic insulated (but not yet clad) open plan space, with a mezzanine level upstairs and it sleeps 5-6.
A wood burning stove provides warmth (logs included) and gas fuelled appliances include fridge ( small caravan size), oven with hob and running hot and cold water in the kitchen. **NOTE- water NOT drinkable in kitchen. We filter water (one micron filter) at a tap beside the shower and have never had any problems with this, however, we would advise guests to boil this filtered water for one minute before drinking. Of course, you are welcome to bring your own bottled water** There is a pull-down double bed in the kitchen area (this is heavy and may require 2 people to lower and raise bed) with an additional double and single bed and space for 2 air mattresses upstairs. Clean but basic accommodation which is reflected in the price. We rely on guests leaving the house clean and tidy as we don't live on site and have no cleaner.
*We ask guests to bring their own bedding (pillowcases/sheets)/sleeping bags*.
Pillows/mattresses/blankets and hot water bottles ARE provided.
We've loads of board games for rainy days too.
This is NOT a luxurious space and a certain level of practical knowledge to deal with the bottled gas etc is required. We have a compost loo adjacent to the house (complete with She-wee) and a gas fuelled outdoor shower a short walk away. Relative luxury!
It can be temperamental in high winds so we provide an outdoor solar bag shower too.
The walk to the house requires boots or other appropriate footwear and depending on fitness takes between 30-40 minutes. The last part to the house can be quite boggy and wet. Cars can be left at the small carpark at the end of the road in Aird so all of your food/luggage will need to be carried by backpack.
There are no near shops or restaurants at Point of Sleat so we advise planning ahead for food. If you need to restock during your stay you'll need to walk back to the carpark (taking between 40-50 minutes) and drive to either the small community shop in Armadale or the larger Co- op in Broadford (approx 30 mins drive).
If all of this doesn't put you off, then you'll love the peace and beauty of the area!

Please be aware that midges (small biting insects) can be troublesome on wet, still days all over the Highlands and you should bring midge repellent or hoods with you to Skye. We have a few midge hoods at the house.

The house sits within a working croft which has cattle, sheep and hens roaming freely. We want to minimise disruption to our neighbours from vehicles driving on the track, so we ask guests to walk to the house. The house is a 2 mile walk from the end of the tarmac road at Aird. Guests would need to be prepared to leave their car at the small carpark next to Aird Old Church Gallery and carry supplies for their stay in all weathers (all part of the fun we think!)
There are many attractions once at Point.
Camas Daraich beach is simply stunning and only a short stroll from the house. It is safe for young children, with fantastic rock pools and abundant sealife. Its a great place for a swim and a barbecue on a sunny day.
Beyond the beach, along the hilltops winds a path to the lighthouse which has dramatic views over the sea to the islands of Rum, Eigg, Muck, and the mainland from Arisaig to Ardnamurchan Point. A good place to spot dolphins or basking sharks if you are lucky.
The area is ringed by low hills, home to red deer and heather and stunning views of the Cuillin hills.
There are many coves and inlets around the headland which are great fun to explore and we've often spotted otters.
We have really enjoyed fishing for mackerel in season from either the sit on kayak or from the shore.
Our kayak is available for guests at your own risk- we do provide buoyancy aids for children and 2 adults. These are not lifejackets.
We are fortunate to be near Armadale and the Gaelic College Sabhal Mor Ostaig, which hosts performances throughout the year via SEALL -a community led performing arts promoter. World class musicians and artists playing in often quite small and intimate venues throughout Sleat.
Alternatively, you may wish to simply bring a good book and totally relax in this amazingly peaceful place.

My family and I bought this wee house in 2010, after searching for a place to 'do up' which was so far off the beaten track that it wouldn't affect local people by removing a possible longterm home. We set about rebuilding bits of it with 3 wee boys who quickly became familiar with power tools and making cement! We have had many happy holidays here and have caught mackerel, edible crabs as big as plates, snorkelled and kayaked, had campfires at the beach under starry skies and played day long games of Monopoly. Above all we have laughed and enjoyed time together. We hope you love it too.

We don't live in Skye so it's unlikely we'll meet directly, however we are available on mobile phone if you need advice or help during your stay. *Please note - mobile phone reception is available at the beach but not at the house itself.* We sadly had to cancel several bookings in October 2019 due to flooding as unprecedented rainfall overwhelmed our drains- now fixed :)
