Built by Alan Stevenson, uncle of Robert Louis Stevenson, to house and service the iconic Skerryvore lighthouse, they have been restored by The Hebridean Trust to provide holiday accommodation for groups and families with a taste for adventure.
This was the 13th year that I've been running courses at Alan Stevenson house and it's just got better and better. It has never pretended to be a five star hotel and is all the better for that.

The Cottage was a great base for our holiday. We appreciated having plenty to do on the doorstep with our kids really enjoying playing in and around the harbour.

The cottage was comfy with the only real drawback not having a dishwasher. The wi-fi was good!
