Sgeir Cottage

Sgeir, pronounced scare (meaning reef), is a very attractive two-bedroomed conversion of part of our traditional stone farm steading, overlooking the reef on the beach to the west and its beautiful evening sunsets. Sgeir is the perfect base for a relaxing nature-based family holiday. Sgeir adjoins Muran cottage, and it is formed from the part of the buildings which once contained the piggery.
