Eco Holiday

Anytime between 1 - 15th September 

This year, come on an Eco-Escape - a holiday with a difference! Visit whenever you want and learn about what interests you! Try out some new activities - wilderness camping, Iyengar yoga, gardening, whale watching, natural art, snorkelling and more… and plenty free time to explore the island at your leisure. Relax, slow down and enjoy island living!

 

An Eco holiday is a unique experience for each person -  choose from a range of activities what you would like to do and plan your day as you like! We will endeavour to make up a programme that suits your interests (weather permitting). You can take part in guided activities such as Iyengar yoga, snorkelling, and nature walks, all with experienced instructors. See Activities page for more details. You can also just explore the island yourself - we will provide local info and maps - visit the caves, beaches, museums and historical sites. Or you can take part in other activities offered on the island - canoeing, archery, weaving and felting (these sessions not included in the cost).

 

If you fancy really escaping from it all there is a fantastic wilderness camping experience, with all camping equipment provided. Evening entertainment includes films, music nights and campfires!

 

 

Cost: £440 for 7 nights full board and accommodation, all equipment and tuition provided. Phone us for a chat about available dates and what you are interested in doing.

About Us

How Earth Connections started

Bob and Norah met whilst studying Human Ecology in Edinburgh in 2000. We wanted to put into practise what we had learned, and so started a 2 year search, whilst living on our boat, for a place to create a Sustainability Centre.  On Eigg, the old Lodge, was lying empty and in disrepair. So we put forward a business proposal to the Isle of Eigg Trust and community, to turn it into an Eco centre, which would help us to live on the island and benefit the wider community too. 

 

The last few years have been spent renovating the building ourselves and with the help of volunteers - all done on a low budget, using recyled, local and environmentally friendly materials. It has been a real labour of love, but it is finally coming together and we can begin to see the fruits of our labour! During this time, we have also raised a family of 3 young boys, and got involved with various community projects on Eigg e.g. the Big Green Challenge, Forest School, Eigg Electric, to name but a few. 

 

We are passionate about the environment and nature and try to live sustainably. We have both been involved in voluntary peace and environmental campaigns; conservation and education work, all our lives. So we have a wealth of experience and skills that we want to share with others! Our vision for the Centre is as a vibrant meeting place where people from all walks of life can get together and share ideas and skills related to sustainability, in order to improve our collective health and happiness.
