The Black Hut

About The Black Hut:

The Black Hut

Part of Bothan Jura Retreat, The Black Hut is a unique, modern accommodation for two and a welcome base from which to explore, or escape, the wilds of Jura. You can cosy up inside with panoramic sea views with the wood burning stove roaring on or you be enjoying a drink on the decking whilst tending to the wood fired hot tub ready for a soak under the stars.  

Thoughtfully created and decorated to provide a tiny sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle beyond the Sound of Jura. The hut sits within our grounds and there is a wooden screen and a grassy bank that means privacy can be had, but if you need total privacy or secure garden for dogs then please consider the other accommodation on the retreat.

Both the Black Hut and the Rusty Hut are designed as single, open plan living space; each has a well-equipped kitchen, separate shower room and loo, and a log burning stove for heat. A double bed can be made in the living space, or for those happy to climb a sturdy library ladder, there is a comfortable double mattress made up on the mezzanine above. 

Outside is a good sized deck, to enjoy breakfast and soak up the views. Fairy lights can set the atmosphere for supper, or, switch off the lights and watch the sun disappear and the stars come out, whilst taking a delicious soak in your wood-fired hot tub. 

The huts are equipped with linen, towels, logs (extra loads can be purchased when you run out), poo bags (for doggos), midge repellent, loo roll, books and games, and a small selection of dry goods and condiments.

The retreat sits in the crofting township of Knockrome, 3 miles from Craighouse and a walk away from the beach at Corran Sands. Ideally placed to enjoy outdoor adventures, the island’s distilleries, and the start of the challenge that is hiking The Paps of Jura or the west coast. The retreat itself is based around cold water therapy (we have a chilled 3-degree ice barrel, you are welcome to use), wild swimming, hiking and outdoor adventures.  Walk, run, swim, cycle, SUP, kayak, bird watch then relax & unwind, Bothan Jura Retreat is the perfect luxury base & getaway for your short stay on Jura. 

Mrs Leonard’s Cottage & The Rusty Hut are also available to rent on the retreat, with hot tubs and both sleep 2 people each and are dog friendly.
