Shuna Farm Eco-friendly Holiday Cottages Argyll Coast Large group Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Arduaine, Argyll and Bute, Scotland


Escape the stresses of modern life and get back to nature on an island where time stands still. Imagine a holiday with no cars, no telephones, no roads, just an abundance of wildlife and a beautiful Hebridean backdrop.

Shuna Island lies in a stunning Hebridean archipelago off the coast of Argyll. Being a private island, holidaymakers have the entire place to themselves. free to explore on foot, by boat or in a kayak. The adventurous can circumnavigate the island and get to know their environment. Those of a more relaxed disposition can kick back and relax and simply enjoy the view. There is an abundance of wildlife to be discovered: red deer, fallow deer, roe deer, otters, seals, eagles to name but a few.

Until 2005-2006, Shuna holidaymakers had to rely solely on gas and paraffin, but thanks to a cutting edge renewable energy system that combines wind and solar power, all houses now have electricity. Water comes through taps from natural springs, although the pipes can be subject to occasional bovine vandalism! In keeping with the island’s “green” ethos, houses also have low-voltage electric lighting systems. Fires or wood-burning stoves (fuelled by logs you chopped earlier!!) provide warmth and atmosphere as you rest up in the evening to discuss your island adventures.

The South End House, which is mainly accessed by boat, is the ultimate escape from modern life. It boasts one of the most spectacular locations anywhere - two miles from any other property with uninterrupted views southward to Jura. Set in a beautiful bay close to ruined farm buildings and ancient burial mounds, families come back year-on-year to make this their very own island getaway.

The Pier House and the Boat House are perfect accommodations for those keen to spend a lot of time on the water. They are just yards from the pier, the main hub of activity on the island, where boats are launched and livestock and provisions come on and off. The cozy Boat House was built lovingly by the island’s owner and is the most luxurious cottage on the island with a state-of-the-art kitchen, Aga and wood-burner. The Pier House is a larger, cheaper option, but again is perfect for water sports enthusiasts and has the same fantastic views across Loch Shuna to the mainland and Loch Melfort.

Two hundred yards up a farm track lies the Garden House. Sitting next to what was the walled garden of the castle, overlooking woodland, this characterful cottage is packed with period features and has a real sense of the past belonging to it. It is also a good choice if you have toddlers or babies as it is a safe distance from the sea.

Located on the edge of a wood, with lovely walks into the island, is Oakwood Cottage (known to long-time regulars as the Bungalow). Set above its own bay but still only a short walk from the pier, this cottage is ideal for those who want a bit of seclusion but not too much. Oakwood, which was not advertised for letting in 2013, is undergoing a revamp this winter in time for the summer season.

There are mains charging points in every house. There is also a charging station below the Boat House at the pier for keeping mobile phones, laptops, mp3 players etc topped up. There is fairly good coverage for mobile phones around the island, and at sea. There is also an island laundry at the pier, which can be made available for an extra charge.
