Conveniently located towards the centre of the island, within 1mile of the shop, café & restaurant, only 15 minutes from Kildonan beach and 2-3miles from Laig Beach and Singing Sands, it provides an ideal base for exploring the island.

The Glebe Apartment adjoins the hostel but has its own private external access. Booked independently from the hostel it is ideally suited for couples or small families, or if booked in conjunction with exclusive use of the hostel, it provides perfect private accommodation for staff or course leaders.

The mezzanine bedroom is designed for two but can accommodate an additional one or two children using the chair bed on the upper floor and/or sofa bed on the floor below.

The twin beds can be joined together as a king-sized double on request. Beds are made up and towels provided for your stay and travel cot is available on request.

Guests have access to the shared south facing garden and if the hostel has not been booked for exclusive use by a group you can use the hostel facilities including a library of books and games, sun-room and table-football.

Interaction with guests

As you will note, you cannot bring your car to the island. We will meet you at the pier and transport you to your accommodation and drop you off at end of your stay. Please inform us which boat you will be arriving on so we know when to expect you.

Although we live on the other side of the island from the Glebe we are never far away and happy to help with anything we can during your stay on the island.

What a fantastic place! Tamsin picked us from the ferry port and took us to the apartment and also dropped our bags off there when we were leaving, which made our trip a lot more relaxing. She also gave us suggestions of place to see during our stay there :) We would recommend this place to anyone that is looking for tranquility and comfort on the Isle of Eigg.

Glebe Barn Apartment lives up to its description and more in every way. And the other reviewers were not exaggerating in their praise. The apartment is warm, cosy, tasteful, spotlessly clean and has the very best equipped self catering accommodation we have ever used - especially the kitchen which for me was a high point because I like to cook meals from scratch so having access to all the usual kitchen utensils and appliances is important. The mezzanine bedroom was charming and very spacious and the big bed comfortable The location turned out to be ideal for exploring all parts of the island. The maps and leaflets in the apartment were all we needed to find out way around. Finally, it was great thrill to sit drinking coffee looking out over the hills watching buzzard and kestrel swoop. Buzzards seem to nest somewhere nearby because they visited the area of Glebe Barn daily when we were there. Tamsin is a warm, helpful and efficient host. She has created a really great getaway. We shall go again, for sure.

We stayed for three nights and had an amazing time on Eigg, the weather was kind and we explored most of the island whilst we stayed. Tamsin and her family were very helpful and the accommodation was perfect, just what we wanted.

Tamsin's apartment is cozy and welcoming with stunning views in every direction. Tamsin and Stu were very friendly with help and lifts to and from the ferry and lots of info about the island. We would highly recommend a stay at the Glebe apartment and a trip to Eigg. We felt like we'd really got away from it all.

The Glebe Barn is a wonderful place. I used the maps and guides that Tamsin and Stu provided to walk around. The apartment is clean and cozy with great window views :) I hope to be back for another (longer) visit soon!

We enjoyed exploring the Isle of Eigg on foot and coming back to our "home" at the comfortable Glebe Barn Apartment each day. We found it to be impeccably clean, and very well-situated. From the kitchen table, we had a lovely view of the Sgurr (which came in and out of sight depending on the weather...) In summary - a great place to stay.
