"The Lochan Shepherd's Hut" : Live off grid.......

Live "off grid" without TV, WiFi and neighbours. The Shepherd's hut is ready for its first visitors; complete with double bed, wood burning stove, solar powered lighting, kitchen and composting toilet. Neighbours include corncrakes (May / June), otters, ducks, geese, herons and sheep across the road.

Mornings can be a little noisy  because of the cockerels up at the croft but most of them will be in the freezer by next week. Otherwise the only sounds are the waves, the wind and thrushes beating snails to death on the roof..

Ben Hiant and Kilchoan Bay are framed in the doorway while the loo window overlooks the Sound of Mull , Ben Talaidh and the Morven peninsula.

There's a good supply of dry firewood to fuel the wood burner and to keep you cosy. Ideal for a reading, walking, wildlife or idling weekend or week.

Unfortunately...... there is mobile phone reception although you could just leave it at home; or in the car if you can't bear to be parted.
