It’s no great coincidence that Skye Shepherd Huts can be shortened to ‘SSH!’. It’s so peaceful here. A home, a henhouse, two donkeys and a pair of matching shepherd’s huts make up Janet’s characterful croft, which she tends to fervently. It’s on the edge of the small village of Heaste so the neighbours are fairly (but not intrusively) close. The views, however, are nothing short of wild and immense, with the mountains on one side and the Isle of Rum on the other.
