Terms & Conditions

Guesthouse Booking Policy

  • Minimum booking for The Hide is 3 nights.
  • On occasion, a shorter stay might be possible. Please contact us directly about this.
  • Full payment is required to confirm a reservation.

The guesthouse at Rua Reidh is a quiet retreat for adults. Well-behaved children are welcome in the FOQ, and mature teenagers in the PKH. We do not advise this location for very young children as the surrounding rocks are treacherous.

Well-behaved dogs are also welcome in the PKH and in the FOQ. There is as small surcharge if you bring your pooch.

Please note that dogs must be kept on leashes at all times as the headland has grazing sheep.

There is a resident cat at the premises but he does not go into the guest areas.

Important information

Tap water: we have excellent natural-source chemical-free water which is brown in colour due to the surrounding peat soil. At the building, the water is double filtered and UV treated as well as independently tested and verified annually.

Telephone: for mobile phones, the area is covered by 4G but the reception can be poor and will also depend on individual service providers. We find that EE sims work the best.

Wifi: each accommodation area has wifi included.

TV: The only TV on the premises is in the FOQ lounge. It is set up for watching DVDs, but has no access to any channels.
