Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Escape the stresses of modern life and get back to nature on an island where time stands still. Imagine a holiday with no cars, no telephones, no roads, just an abundance of wildlife (red deer, fallow deer, roe deer, otters, seals, eagles) and the romance of life on a private island. A model for sustainability, Shuna, a working farm, has no ugly power lines. Solar panels and a small turbine harness the power of the sun and the wind for electricity. With a boat (provided) to visit neighbouring islands and explore Shuna's hidden coves you may even catch your own fish supper!

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Shuna lies in the heart of the biggest archipelago in the British Isles. Dozens of islands offer countless coves to explore and stunning views to enjoy. Colours change with the sea's mood in what is a paradise for boatmen, fishermen and artists alike.
Between these islands lie some of the world's most stunning tidal races.
The Gulf of Corryvreckan between Jura and Scarba, the world's third largest whirlpool, is the most famous, but the pass of the Gray Dog, just to the north, can be even more dramatic!
The islands, including Shuna, are home to European Otter and Red Deer, Roe Deer and Fallow Deer. Atlantic Grey Seals, Minke Whale, Bottlenose Dolphin, and Harbour Porpoise are regular marine visitors. Golden and White-tailed Sea Eagles scour land and sea.
