Cabin Envy bothy



This is Sweeney’s Bothy which can be found on the Hebridean island of Eigg, apparently Britain’s most eco-friendly island, well so says The Guardian. The bothy comes with fair trade bedding and towels; a wool duvet and mattress topper; organic & biodegradable toiletries and cleaning products [compost loo], plus it generates its own electricity.

Sweeney’s Bothy is one of three that are part of The Bothy Project, providing week long residencies. This happens for six months of the year and the other six months they are available for public rental. If you book the bothy you get picked up from the ferry and returned, after what must be a completely secluded break.

It reminds me of these Nordic cabins for artists I posted a while back

A friend sent me a link to some cabins in Wales just as I was putting together this post from Scotland, yet there seem to be similarities Here’s the link  – they were all winners of a competition to create cabins based on Welsh traditions.
