Difficult to say: can be glorious and also ‘dreach’ – Scottish expression for pretty miserable! It is surprisingly warm as the Gulf Stream hugs this part of the Scottish coast, which does affect the weather.
Starter toilet roll & soap per basin and loo. Washing up liquid, dishcloth & Scotchbrite. Lots of dry goods left in larder like salt & pepper herbs & spices.
The Co-op in Mallaig (mainland) will arrange to put up a grocery order for you to collect from the shop before you catch the boat. More provisions can be sent over on the ferry which runs daily. Alternatively there is a large Morrison in Fort William to stock up before you arrive.
Linen and towels are provided. No beach towels – if you are that brave then please BYO!
Mail will be delivered on M, W & F afternoon when it has come over on the ferry. This is left on the freezer in the boat shed. Outgoing post should be posted in the box by the Post Office by 10.45 am on M, W & F to catch the boat. There is no fax facility, however there is Wi-Fi available at the house. Mobile reception is poor – you have to go to the top of a hill and face Mallaig!
Regrettably pets are not permitted at Creag Eiridh.
Yes, a pay-phone, the number is 01687 462040.
Regrettably not, we only collect and return to Mallaig by boat.
You will need a car to get to Mallaig unless you arrive by train. As Knoydart is only accessible by boat, cars have to be left in Mallaig. There is a Land Rover available if required. Details on request.
