No 64 Easdale Island: self-catering accommodation

No 64 is a delightful mid-terrace cottage on the unique conservation, car free island of Easdale in the Inner Hebrides of Western Scotland. Formerly one of the Slate Islands “that roofed the world”, Easdale Island is situated in the Firth of Lorn Marine Area of Special Conservation and is connected to the mainland by a 4 minute pedestrian-only ferry.

The cottage is finished to a very high standard throughout and, although recently built and having all modern conveniences, it looks like it has stood on this tiny Argyll island for 200 years.

This unspoilt island has a popular bar/restaurant, The Puffer; a community hall that hosts a variety of events during the year; together with its own award winning museum dedicated to the history of the Slate Workers.

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, sea pursuits are popular; sea kayaking, diving, fishing and mooring for your own boat on the island. There are also boat trips available locally to the famous Corryvreckan Whirlpool, Iona, Colonsay and whale watching in the summer months.

What a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. No street lights to keep you awake, no traffic. Listen to the sound of the waves, watch dolphins in the sound and just totally “chill out” or even “take a dip” in the swimming quarry!
