Just a few minutes walk up a gentle slope from the pier, the house is full of period features and has a real sense of the past about it. Overlooks woodland to the front and rear, sits beside the old walled garden of the castle.  The house has been extensively refurbished externally for 2013.

Garden House features include...

  • sleeps eight in 1 double room, 1 twin room, and 1 double bunk room

  • Low voltage lighting throughout, with mains power for charging phones, laptops etc.

  • ideally situated for exploring the interior of the island, but still within easy reach of the sea

Lorraine Cruse

Shuna

 

Paddling stealthily  

through silk seas 

we hold our breath 

as the otter surfaces. 

 

His log body floats across the waves 

head raised 

then with a flick  

he is gone 

long tail sliding into darker depths. 

 

Up again 

like a champagne cork 

bobbing and chomping 

on a luckless fish. 

We hear bones crunching. 

 

There’s snow in the air 

and the ridges are dusted 

like Christmas Stollen. 

 

A cloud the size of Scotland 

presses down on the heron’s languid flight 

and a rubber-headed seal 

pounces on a bouy 

a toy to play with in its loch-sized bath. 

 

Then hail hits the waves 

A pounding of diamonds 

Beautiful and sharp. 

 

Mica Schist captures the brilliance 

In its ripples 

Nature’s mirror ball 

Reflecting the rainbow’s fraying end. 

 

We float home 

with eiders whistling in our ears 

the urgent flock of redwings 

in the twinkling of our eyes 

 

our heads ablaze  

with birds and beasts and light.
