Glebe Barn
Ranked #3 of 4 Isle of Eigg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 July 2015

We had 16 people for 1 week studying plants (mosses) on Eigg and needed a place to house everyone, allow self-catering, lab facilities for study, wi-fi, drying facilities for wet clothes and everything else for an outdoor field trip. Eigg is a fantastic place for wildlife of all kinds, esp plants and birds. The people are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant/cafe/ pub (Galmisdale Bay) is good. The shop has limited opening hours so shopping needs to be planned. No cars are allowed on Eigg, but luggage is transported to and from the pier and hostel. We got some superb meals brought to us by Eiggy Bread. Cannot think of anything negative, and the music festival was brilliant.

Room Tip: All rooms are shared, but spacious, plenty of toilets and showers, constant hot water, wonderful vie...

Stayed for a week with Bill Hendersons singing week. Stayed in the Glebe Barn which is in a great location on Eigg and beautifully converted - everything you could need - good showers, drying room and huge kitchen.
The family who own it are lovely and I look forward to returning.

It is such a lovely place and eigg is a great place to stay. The house is very beautiful inside and out, if your thinking about going to eigg to stay you should come here, but just watch out for the hairs in bed. __________PLEASE IF YOU FIND A RED IPOD TOUCH GENERATION 5, PLEASE CONTACT -lindiemtaylor@gmail.com _____________thank you

Stayed for a weeks singing course so the whole building had been booked for our group. The owners are lovely and the place is beautifully renovated.
Neat gardens overlooking the sea. Boot room, wood burning stove, wooden floors, plenty of loos and showers, big well stocked kitchen.
There is also a separate self contained annexe which is lovely.
Will definitely be back.

The Annexe is perfect self contained accommodation for a couple. Very comfortable, well equipped and peaceful. Great location from which to explore whole island. Eigg is a little gem and we enjoyed a week of almost perfect weather albeit in October. We would strongly recommend the annexe as a base for independent exploration of the island.
