Ignore the negative reviews, they don't get it. This island is not for those who are going to moan at the slightest problem. We stayed in Sawmill cottage in October and we loved every second. Deer outside the window when you wake up, the pine Martin on the window ledge every night, the golden eagle. The walks and sandy bay,... More

We love this place, and having been coming here to stay in the cottages for many years now. It is peaceful, quiet, genuinely away from it all. The wildlife is outstanding as are the views from every part of the island. However the cottage we stay in, South Shore, is being woefully neglected. The kitchen in particular is looking very...

Just back from a fantastic week at south shore Cottage With my partner Caroline and the two dogs. If you want peace and quiet , no electric ( just gas lamps )and a fantastic wood burner to heat your water then this is the place. I can't say any more than true bliss. We have travelled Scotland extensively and I... More

Best holiday EVER! A step back pre-technology. A place where time is irrelevant. We are totally chilled, refreshed and relaxed. Returned 20th July and weather was amazing as is the island itself. Not for people looking for luxury or noise! Staff are fantastic too I do feel however that the owners are missing a trick in not offering boat trips... More

If you are of the Bear Grylls fraternity, then read no more. You'll be fine, and this review will just spoil it for you. If, however, like us, it has been a few years (or even decades) since the last scout camp, you might appreciate a bit more information about South Shore Cottage than is available from the letting agency....

As previous reviews, this is written about the island and one of the cottages. I have just returned from a week on the island. I want to give a balanced review so I'll start with the staff. Paul, Jo and Jon are lovely, friendly people. They are there to help you if needed and to transport you to and from... More

First I should stress that this is a review for a stay in Timber Cottage on Eilean Shona, NOT Eilean Shona House. I'm adding the review here because others have done the same and their reviews have been more about the island itself than the accommodation. We have stayed on the west coast many times and love it, but Eilean... More

We have been holidaying on Eilean Shona since 1994, staying in the cottages not the big house. This is not for you if you like organised entertainment, and shopping for souvenirs. No cars, no bikes, no television, no internet (in the cottages) - bliss. For us it is simply paradise. An unspoilt and totally beautiful little island packed with wildlife,... More

We're just back from 5 days on the wonderful island of Eliean Shona; surely one of the genuninely great locations in the UK. It's hard to know where to start, but once the short boat trip to the island is complete and you've settled into your comfortably unshowy, but classy room, the treats come thick and fast. It's difficult to... More

You can see why J M Barrie was inspired to write Peter Pan whilst staying there. Eilean Shona is the perfect place to escape the rat race because no phones, TV or Wifi = no pressures. We stayed in a cottage (not the private big house) during a glorious week of sunny but crisp weather. Woods, deer and tree swing... More
