Right next to the shore - along which you can walk to the local Inn.
Simple, spacious and basic.
This bothy is our former home decluttered.
One large, light open-plan room.
Small range & wood-burner provides heating and hot water.
This is an old stone building with a more recent stone end built by my brother Donald Icky Maclachlan - stonemason. It is very basic but it does have double glazing.
The track down into the bay at Camuslusta is very steep. Although some people can find this a bit daunting, the track has a fairly good surface and all the residents of Camuslusta drive normal cars up and down it daily.
The front door of the bothy practically opens onto the beach. Although the track to our house runs between the bothy and the shore.
You can watch the gannets, gulls, herons, oyster-catchers, seals and occasionally an otter from the front door or through the windows.
With views over to the uninhabited headland opposite, out to the little islands at the head of the bay, or of the shipping crossing the Minch between us and the Outer Isles.
The bothy has one large, light and spacious, open-plan living, kitchen, sleeping room.
The bothy offers flexible sleeping arrangements - there is a double bed and also a 1930's sofa bed which is probably not that comfortable. It is also possible to pitch a tent in front of the house.
The kitchen is very basic.
One step up from camping - it's inside, and there's a sink and a fridge. It has a small wood-burning range which heats the water and also two-ring gas stove for quick cooking.
The bothy has basics like an electric kettle, electric toaster, pans, plates glasses and cutlery.
We provide basics like milk, oatmeal for porridge (and a recipe), tea, coffee, olive oil for cooking, salt, pepper.
At the moment - guests can use the bathroom in our house for a shower. We have towels - not necessarily the fluffiest ever, but fine.
As guests you will have the option of using a simple composting toilet outside (until the new grander composting toilet is built) or the toilet in the house.
Our house is a short distance along the track and the bathroom is in the extension by the front door.
There is a telly but it only plays videos. There are a few videos in the cupboard - a small but varied collection.
Do not expect this bothy to be immaculate - it is a more than a little worn around the edges - but it is a beautiful space in an amazing spot.
We are at the bottom of a steep but relatively smooth track. Most vehicles are fine, sports cars need to be very careful and take it slowly. We accept NO responsibility for guests vehicles driving or walking down the track.
There is parking very close to the bothy.
