From the pre visit comms and advice this was fantastic. This accommodation forms park of a larger (but not overly large) group accommodation house set on the hill (about a 2km hack up) overlooking Galmisdale Bay.
Our kit was ferried on arrival to the accommodation together with the provisions bought from the small but perfectly formed shop on the harbour front. Solid steed bikes can be hired from the harbour too and are highly recommended as the best way to investigate the island - locks not required. The space is laid out efficiently and combines privacy with stunning views and all the essentials (including maps and guidebooks) and space needed to allow a relaxed and comfortable stay on this wonderful island. Whilst this is not the only accommodation on the island I really see no reason to change. We're already planning several return journeys.
