in one of just three stylish shoreside cottages and the whole island is yours to explore. Rent a single cottage for a romantic hideaway for two or all three cottages to enjoy with family and friends.

‘Seascape’, ‘Skyescape’ and ‘Escape’ (scroll down the page to see the cottage descriptions and picture galleries below )have been beautifully renovated from ruins in the Dry Harbour settlement and open year round, the cottages contain everything you need to Robinson Crusoe in luxury with a creative mix of contemporary & vintage furnishings & kitchenware. Eco credentials are enhanced by clean green turbine electricity: but don’t worry, the cottages have all the modern comforts of the mainland & more: wood burning stoves & central heating make a cosy & comfortable retreat after a day’s exploring.

In fact everything you need for your holiday is here: just bring your food & drink for the stay or try some of the ever expanding list of island produce available. We’re passionate about our island produced food from seafood to venison – ingredients that will delight foodies & local food enthusiasts alike. If fishing is your thing, catch your own sustainable supper of mackerel or pollack along with mussels collected from the shore, or catch lobster and crab in the creels provided.

right at the end of the track, in a secluded location – and hence very popular with honeymoon couples, ‘Escape’ – the former Rona Manse – overlooks the tidal bay of Dry Harbour (Acarseid Thioram) from an elevated site with fantastic west facing views across the Sound of Raasay towards Skye and the pinnacle, ‘The Old Man of Storr’. Beyond the enclosed garden, the Rona red deer come to graze on the grassy slope to the shore in the early morning and late evening. The views and sunsets are breathtaking from this elevation.

Seascape & Skyescapeseascape


‘Seascape’ (on the left in the picture above) and ‘Skyescape’, our two adjoining cottages have been rebuilt from the former Mission House overlooking the beautiful tidal bay of Dry Harbour (Acarseid Thioram).The linear arrangement of the cottages retains a high degree of privacy. Even in the height of summer, some occupants don’t see their neighbours for the entire week having your own entrance gates and picnic tables & benches, whilst others become lasting friends!  For a true escapist holiday, book in low season and the chances are you’ll have Dry Harbour to yourself. The cottages overlook the tidal bay of Dry Harbour, where at high tide, you’re yards from the sea and often accompanied by an inquisitive seal but the low tide reveals rock pools, shellfish and mussels to collect for a seafood supper.

Inside the cottages are comfy with wood burning stoves, leather sofas, oak floors & rugs but with the sea on your doorstep you’ll be raring to get outside. Fishing or foraging for seafood in the rockpools at low tide are favourite pastimes and any catches can be brought from shore to saucepan in minutes…whilst the woodburning stoves and central heating ensure cosy evenings out of season – relax in front of the fire with a complimentary dram of our Rona whisky after a day exploring the island.
