Caisteal Liath and its’ owners, are not liable to you or any third parties for any accident, damage, loss, injury expense or inconvenience, which may be suffered, incurred, arise out of or is in any way connected with the rental of one of our properties.

The number of persons occupying the property must not exceed that as stipulated on the website.

The accommodation let is to be used for the sole purpose of a holiday and that the hirer shall not sub-let the premises or any part thereof.

The hirer of the property shall undertake to prevent any member of his/her party from causing a nuisance or disturbance to other residents or occupiers and to ensure that the property is left secure when unoccupied.

The tenant will keep the property and all furniture, equipment & fitments in or on the property in the like state of repair and good condition and cleanliness as at the commencement of the let and will make good any damage, breakage or loss that may occur during the let.

The customer binds and obliges himself to vacate the hired premises without demand at the termination of the period hire.

Right of entry is reserved at all reasonable times for the purpose of inspection or to carry out necessary repairs and maintenance.

If the property which you have booked becomes unavailable or unusable, for whatever reason prior to the date of your booking, then our obligation to you is this;
a) to endeavour to find you a suitable alternative property, or, failing that,
b) to reimburse you for any monies paid.

If accepted, dogs are not to be left unattended in the property.

Caisteal Liath reserves the right to refuse entry to the entire party, or to terminate the stay, without refund, if any of these conditions are not complied with.

Every effort will be made to ensure you have an enjoyable stay; however we know we can’t always be 100% perfect. Please let us know immediately if this is not the case.

We will endeavour to rectify, wherever possible.


In the event of a cancellation by the tenant, the deposit will be forfeit and the owners must be notified. If the cancellation is made less than eight weeks before the commencement of the let, the total rent will be forfeit.

It is therefore advisable to take out holiday cancellation insurance cover. There are now travel insurance policies with Covid-19 cover available. The Post Office and Trailfinders Travel Insurance are two such companies.


The owners have taken every care to ensure the accuracy of property descriptions on the website and all information is provided in good faith and is believed to be correct.

Short Breaks

Due to the popularity of our properties we can rarely accept short break bookings between April and October. If you would like to book a short break during these months, please contact me no more than 2 weeks before the proposed dates of your holiday.

What Our Guests Say

We had a really great time and thanks for the use of the sun loungers. Accommodation was very good with nice views over the sea allowing us to observe a wide variety of boats coming into the harbour. Everywhere we went the folk we met were very friendly. Very much hope to see you again.
