Vanessa Branson X Eilean Shona Island : walking into a postcard

Do you love nature at its most authentic? Well, this cottage might just been what you were always looking for. In a decor taken out of a Victorian novel, where crystal clear water lakes contour endless brook fields, there you can find a true oasis to stay in for a few days. This decor is the nature of a small Scottish island called Eileen Shona. The cottage’s owner, Vanessa Branson – a Notting Hill based gallery owner as well as the younger sister of the famed entrepreneur – fell in love with the island a while ago. After getting across on a small dinghy, a thirty minute walk will lead you to a tiny, picture perfect house that seems to have jumped out of a postcard. Don’t worry about your luggage: your belongings will follow on a quad along with necessary supplies. The cottage, while comfortably furnished, avoids the cliché of an interior design magazine destination, and can host up to 4 people in the best conditions. The house’s best features (a beautiful fireplace, a Victorian bathtub, original wooden floors…) make it the perfect cocoon for a couple in need of a getaway, rather than a family vacation. Teenagers might not be the perfect fit either for this kind of stay considering the cottages offers no WiFi and activities are more on the healthy side. These include swimming in fresh waters, trekking, canoeing… everything you need to reconnect with nature in its raw form. Come evening, the sunset transforms into the perfect Instagram filter. That’s the moment you understand what Kate Winslet meant when she said this was the most beautiful place she’s ever been in…
