The
Experience

A former post office, Mungo’s Den now shines brightly in its blue exterior. Everything was rebuilt with the environment in mind: materials were reclaimed, and the glorious mix of furniture was recycled or, in the case of the spiral staircase, rescued from a garden and lovingly repaired. Your welcome essentials are locally sourced, and the sheets are organic cotton. In the living room there are warmed tile floors, a log burner, a comfy sofa and a dining table for four. Vintage fabrics and a Bakelite phone add quirk, while the flat screen TV and iPod dock bring it all into the 21st century. The kitchen continues the recycled theme with a mix of crockery and Victorian cupboard doors; the gleaming bathroom has a roll top bath and underfloor heating. Downstairs, the bunk room is a riot of colour, with jolly cushions and Cath Kidston linen, while the mezzanine has a super king-sized bed, more gorgeous fabrics and a velux window that lets you watch the sun set. Wonderful Skye has much to offer – long, quiet beaches and walks from the door, heaps of wildlife to spot – and this fun and fabulous bolthole to return to.
