Scottish Islands Explorer - September / October 2016 Issue

This issue of the magazine has been produced by Buxton Press and it has a new look, touch and smell. Why not find out by purchasing a copy or subscribing with a money-back guarantee if not satisfied?

Shulista Croft, Skye

Situated on the northern tip of the Trotternish Peninsula, Isle of Skye, is a working croft, Shulista. It offers something remarkable - four deluxe camping pods or wigwams which provide glamorous camping or 'glamping' plus a warm welcome from owners, Adam & Sally Williams.

The views from the pod-terraces are stunning and the self-contained heated units, with car-parking alongside, have sleeping for four on a double-bed and fold-out sofa bed, kitchen, dining area, toilet, shower and flat-screen television.

For the first stage of your trip to Skye, go to the Shulista website and see what's on offer.
