On The Hill

This unique building was built in the early 1900’s for the Free Church of Scotland and used as a church until the 1950s. It was subsequently used for a variety of purposes and had fallen into disrepair when it was taken over in 2005. Four years were spent converting the old church into a beautiful and unique dwelling. The project was featured on Channel 5’s ‘Build A New Life In The Country’ series. As part of the renovation a completely self-contained self catering apartment, in what was the old vestry, was created.

The apartment and Main Church are available on a nightly basis (min 2 nights) or weekly lets, eg Sat-Sat etc.

The building is furnished unusually in art deco style to match the main house and features underfloor heating. In the Old Vestry there is a double bedroom that sleeps 2, plus a sofa bed in the living room, which sleeps 2 more if required. The Main Church has 3 bedrooms, 1 en-suite, with a sofa bed in the down stairs lounge, a cot in the master bedroom and extra single bed in the up stairs lounge. There is a Freesat TV, Now TV, Netflix and CD/DVD player. We also offer our guests a free wi-fi connection and are in one of the very few spots on the island with mobile phone reception!
