Explore the island

Dry Island is a secluded, self contained tidal island set in the stunningly beautiful Badachro bay on the West Coast.

We offer 3 places to stay, the Old Curing Station is part of the the main house and sleeps 2, The Captain’s Cabin has exceptional sea views and sleeps two and Otter Cabin has everything you need.

Take a breath

Now, perhaps more than ever, we all need to take time to ourselves and our families to take it all in. Life/work balance has got harder to judge, the pressures of the modern world need an antidote, and we like to think Dry Island helps everyone just slow down a wee bit.
