Our camping pods offer basic, comfortable, heated and well lit accommodation for up to four people, with a raised sleeping platform and ample storage space. Each pod has a small fridge and some crockery.
We can supply bedding at an extra cost – either a double duvet, sheets, pillows and towels for £20 per trip; or a sleeping bag with liner, pillow and towel for £12 per trip. You can also add towel packs for £6 (for two towels) per trip. Or two pillows for £6 per trip. These can be added by clicking extras while booking.
The raised sleeping platforms can be transformed into a single large platform that can accommodate a maximum of four people.
Our top-most pod, An Sgurr, sits alone with its own cooking shelter and surrounding land. The two lower pods, Beinn Tighe, the left-hand pod, and Beinn Buidhe, the right-hand pod, share a cooking shelter so are perfect for larger groups who wish to share facilities.
No cooking equipment is provided but disposable barbecues are available from The Isle of Eigg Shop and you are welcome to use your own stoves.
The camping pods have a limited electric supply supplying a double socket with two USB charging points; electric kettle and lights. There is a small electric heater that operates when our renewable energy supply has surplus electricity available. That’s usually when it’s wet and windy so they should work when you really need them. Please don’t bring any power hungry electrical appliances as the supply to your camping pod will trip off.
Outside each camping pod is a place you can have a small campfire and if you’re feeling sociable there is a larger campfire spot for everyone to enjoy. All we ask is that you don’t cut or break trees down to fuel the fire. There is usually driftwood along the shoreline and if you ask first you can be directed to where you can gather fallen branches.
Toilets, showers and a drying room are located at our new washouse, Taigh Nighe, just yards from the pods.
