A first night in our cabin is £50 each night, for each adult. Children under 12 are £20 per night. Children under 2 are free.
During the high season, every booking will be charged £20 extra per day.

Each booking also has a one off £36 deep clean fee.

If you join the Virtual Village first, you may get extra discounts. You can register to find out more here.

During the High Season, minimum preferred stay is 3 days, if you want to change that, please discuss that with us before booking.

Your stay is self-catered.

You’ll have the whole cabin, your own little kitchen with a gas hob and the basic cooking essentials, your own compost toilet and your own bonfire place to yourselves. The cabin has electric heating, a fridge, a toaster and a kettle. You can buy all sorts of things on our market place.

You can make an outside bonfire. You are welcome to bring untreated wood or charcoal or buy some from us. A first box of firewood is included in the welcome pack.

You will have access to much (but not all) of our 15 acre Rock and beaches for walks and peace and quiet leisure time.

Please note that booking a stay in our cabin does not automatically mean that you are a full member of our community. You are welcome to ask to be part of the community, though that would mean that you need to go through a stricter ‘selection’ or ‘vetting’ process. Our community is a safe HOME for a variety of people and children and wildlife and we feel precious about our safe community and culture and we want to know you better before we welcome you into that bubble. We hope that you understand this. You can read more about the selection process here.

You can book sessions to learn about Permaculture, Nature Connection or other exciting activities on our marketplace. Please feel free to book these in advance. Contact us to arrange.

Sorry, no dogs or pets, hen or stag parties or drones on our Rock.

Your hut is close to the ferry terminal of Armadale. You may hear traffic, car park noises and the first ferry arrive between 8-9AM. If you prefer to be in a more quiet location, contact us.

Reservations are only made when the booking is paid for. We reserve your spaces only when an agreement and full payment is made.

When booking, you accept and agree to adhere to the terms and conditions and conduct agreement below.

If you really need to drive close to your accommodation, we will guide you and walk ahead of you, to make sure it is really safe for you to do so.

– The West coast of Scotland can be really wet and windy. Check the weather forecast. Choose your activities wisely.

No naked flames such as camping stoves or candles in your accommodation.

Keep to footpaths and do not create new paths please. Do not run. Our paths are uneven and there are trip hazards. You will need to use appropriate footwear. If you would like to walk around the beach, we recommend using a long walking stick to aid your balance when climbing over the rocks.
Seaweed can be very slippery!

(we almost always manage to do so) If we don’t manage to fill your space, no refund will be given. We recommend that you would take travel insurance to minimize any inconvenience with short notice cancellations.

If we cancel bookings, we will give a full refund.

If we need to intervene due to negative behaviour or if you breach our terms and conditions and we consequently have to ask you to leave, we will not give any refunds.

Please note that the Virtual Village will not be able to refund you your £’s if you exchanged £’s for Rubha Rocks first to pay for your holiday. (If you pay in £’s, this does not apply to you) This would be illegal for us to do so. You can sell your RR’s onwards to others in the Virtual Village at any price you choose. More explanation is available here in the terms and conditions of the Virtual Village.

Thank you and enjoy your stay!
