The Yurt at Croft 3 is new for Summer 2018. It has been purpose built in the UK by Woodland Yurts and is 19 feet in diameter. It is located on it’s own platform made from Knoydart timber. The platform is enclosed within a wooden fence giving Croft 3 Yurt guests a private area (and preventing invasion by the Croft 3 sheep!). The enclosed area is uncultivated and wild flowers, butterflies and insects are abundant in the summer. The main platform is connected by steps and walk-ways to a composting loo hut, a shower hut and a cooking shelter. The yurt can accommodate a couple or a family comfortably. There is a double platform bed and two folding out futon beds. An additional airbed can be added for a family of five. It is not recommended for toddlers as the walk-ways do not have railings.
The yurt has a small wood burner for when the weather is cold. The cooking hut has a double gas camp cooker and is well stocked with everything you need for self-catering.
Croft 3 yurt guests also have access to an indoor shower and toilet located in the access to the Main house, a sink for washing up and a fridge and freezer (stocked with cold blocks to keep the cold box in the kitchen hut cool).
Please note the indoor facilities are about 200 m walk from the yurt and this is the only place you can do washing up so bring outdoor clothing and practical footwear as the weather isn’t always dry!
We have a range of wetsuits and some wellies you can borrow during your stay. Please let us know in advance if you want to borrow any so we can dig out the right sizes.
We can also provide beach towels as required and ask that the yurt towels don’t go to the beach!
ABOUT THE AREA
Location is everything at croft 3! The croft leads right down to a pristine white beach. To get there you walk along a wooden walkway through the croft surrounded by wildlife. There is a small gate at the bottom leading to a network of white sandy beaches, rocky Islands and pools. It is approximately 400 m from the yurt to the beach. The white sand shelves gently making it a very safe place for playing, swimming and boating.
The village of Arisaig is two miles away along quiet single track road. There you will find a small shop, PO, two cafés, two hotels, sea kayak hire centre and a pub. Regular live music evenings are held at the pub. There is also a local information centre and wild life cruises to the Small Isles.
The small town of Mallaig is six miles further along the coast. Mallaig is a busy fishing port and Marina. It has two small food stores, several hotels and cafes, an indoor swimming pool and gym and a ferry terminal. From Mallaig you can catch ferries to the Isle of Skye, the Small Isles and Knoydart.
Along the coast there are many beautiful white beaches including the famous Camusdarach and the white sands of Morar. Loch Morar, the deepest Loch in Europe (and home to the Loch Morar monster!) is also just six miles away.
There are lots of coastal and hill walks in the vicinity, on the islands and Knoydart -we can advise you and lend you maps.
Croft 3 Bunacaimbe is a small croft based on a rectangular field leading down to a beautiful white sandy beach.The views over the Small Isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum and over the Ardnamurchan peninsular are second to none. From the beach to the North you can see the Isle of Skye, incredible sunsets are frequent and occasionally dolphins pass by.
We are ideally located for exploring the area known as ‘The Outdoor Capital of the UK’ and also as a stop off point when touring the West Highlands including the Inner and Outer Hebrides.
