The Glebe Barn Hostel
The Glebe Barn is a charming and characterful conversion of a 19th century building on the Island of Eigg in the Inner Hebrides. The accommodation has a relaxed and homely ambience with breathtaking views. Situated towards the centre of the island only one mile from the pier, where there is a licensed cafe/restaurant, shop and craft shop, the Glebe Barn is ideally located for exploring the island.
The Glebe has a large lounge/dining area with solid maple floor, log fire, sound system, a small library and plenty of games and jigsaws for all ages. All the windows have fabulous panoramic sea views. The kitchen is superbly equipped with a large gas cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, blender and a separate pantry with ample storage for large groups. There is free wi-fi throughout the building. The building is fully central heated with hot showers and washing/drying facilities. Linen is provided but not towels.
Sleeping up to 22 in 1 twin room, 2 triple rooms, an 8 bunk and a 6 bunk room, Glebe Barn is perfect for families or large groups. The large open plan lounge/dining area divided by a centrally located log fire has proved extremely versatile for the various groups, providing an ideal venue for schools, universities, corporate training events, conferences, workshops and retreats; or simply get-togethers with family and friends.
The building is self-catered, although full catering is available to groups by prior arrangement with our superb local catering team who provide delicious locally sourced, home cooked food.
Conveniently located towards the centre of the island, within 1mile of the shop, café & restaurant, only 15 minutes from Kildonnan beach and 2-3miles from Laig Beach and Singing Sands, it provides an ideal base for exploring the island. Situated beneath the majestic pitchstone ridge of “An Sgurr' the Glebe commands magnificent panoramic views across the harbour to the Scottish coastline beyond.
