Set on our working croft on the Hebridean island of Eriskay, Carrick offers all the comforts and conveniences for a short break or an extended holiday at any time of year - whether it's the great outdoors you're here for, for a family gathering, or just to unwind with a good book and a real fire. The house is ideal for a family of up to five, or one or two couples

The house is a fusion of island tradition and the latest in sustainable design. Whilst reflecting the scale, proportions and simplicity of the older island croft houses, Carrick is no dull recreation of a mythical yesteryear. The house has a contemporary feel both in terms of aesthetics and practical living; it is light, airy and spacious, and it incorporates numerous elements of sustainable design - some innovative.

But above all with its panoramic views across the Sound of Eriskay, set on our traditional Hebridean croft Carrick is quite simply a wonderful place to live - if only for a week or two!
