Great and beautiful place definitely worth visiting for the nature lovers. Breathtaking scenery and most remote location makes it special. Do not expect the luxuries , but host was very transparent about the conditions. Must go place for every hiker. We loved the peace ,quietness and "end of the world" feeling. Overall 5 stars.

I just wanted to drop a mail to say how much we enjoyed our stay at cragaig. The setting is fantastic and the bothy is very well appointed. We left a couple of items for other guests including some logs & charcoal which I assume was ok. I’m sure we’ll be back again to enjoy some more island hopping adventures
