Stayed here for two nights as a large group (both adults and children) where we have the full barn to ourselves. Have to say I was well impressed, the location is brilliant (Eigg is a lovely island in a lovely part of Scotland) and the cleanliness and amenities in the barn were spot. The kids had a great time walking... More

From the pre visit comms and advice this was fantastic.

The Glebe Barn (like pretty much everything else on Eigg) is in a lovely spot, and the new sun room really makes the most of the views. The hostel is very spacious and spotlessly clean and the hosts helpful and welcoming. They tweaked the sleeping arrangements to give our group of 5 a room to ourselves. Everyone we met on... More
