  • Do you have any power to run electric?
    No, there is no electricity at all at the wagon. There is no running water. There are battery powered lights though.
    Answered on 10 July 2021
  • Hi there is there a bathroom?
    There is an outdoor “ compost toilet” in a wooden hut in the field twenty metres away from the wagon. This accommodation is completely off grid, so there is no flushing toilet, running water, shower or electricity. Thanks.

  • How can I get to the closest beach from the property?
    The closest beach, is Oldshoremore. It’s only a few minutes walk from the wagon. Leave the field, walk down the rest of the road towards the beach car park. Then follow the path up and round the graveyard. You will then reach the beach.

    There is no shuttle to get to the nearest beach. The nearest beach is walking distance.

The wagon sits in a SSSI field over looking the stunning Oldshoremore beach , If you love adventure, being cut off from the rest of the world, and you don’t mind washing your body in the ocean or the stream, then the Eco Crofter’s Wagon is for you. You’ll go back to basics, and be completely “ off grid”. No electricity, no running water and no internet or phone! The wagon is warm, with the little wood burning stove and quality bedding. There’s a compost toilet in a hut outside the wagon in the field, and there’s a fire pit in the field overlooking the ocean. There’s basic cooking facilities, including pots and pans, plates and cutlery and a small easy to use gas camping stove. You may see highland cows, stags, eagles, Canadian geese or badgers during your stay. The beach is often completely empty, and is often known as being one of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland. It is only a few minutes walk from the wagon. Parking is only available in the beach car park at the bottom of the road. There are public toilets there, and in Kinlochbervie 2 miles away, you’ll find a warm shower in the Harbour Office building. ( see photos for shower info)

The land is a protected wild habitat, full of wild flowers and different orchids. It also is home to the endangered Great Yellow Bumblebee. Viking King Hako once lived on this land! This is a typical rural highland Crofting hamlet. You are sure to witness both some modern and traditional Crofting practises whilst you are here. There’s an outstandingly beautiful beach at Oldshoremore, where it’s said the Vikings used to turn their boats. The rocks around are the oldest on this planet. The “Machair” habitat is rare and unique. There are rare orchids growing in the field around you and the endangered Great Yellow Bumblebee lives here too. The walk to Sandwood Bay is only a few miles along the road. Again, this is another beautiful beach, and can only be accessed on foot ( 4 mile walk- takes Aprox 2 hours) Smoo Cave is in Durness, and is a 40 minute drive away. Handa Island is a 20 minute drive away, where you can then access the island via a speedboat/ferry, which is bookable in advance. It’s an uninhabited island where Puffins live. It’s common to see sheep and Highlands cows wandering up the road here in Oldshoremore.There are also donkeys and Alpacas nearby.
