Tiny UK island that's country's 'best kept secret' – where you can spot seals from your bedroom… but there's no pub | The Sun

NATURE lovers who want to be right next to the action should head to a tiny island in Scotland.

The Isle of Luing is dubbed one of the "best-kept secrets in Scotland" with just 200 locals and three minutes from the mainland.

There's no pub or supermarket, and the ferry stops at 6pm.

But what is on the island is the WildLuing resort, home to eight self-catering "WildSuites" which overlook Torsa Bay in the Firth of Lorn.

Guests can book The Observatory, with panoramic views as well as a fully equipped kitchen, pantry and cosy living space.

It can be used as a yoga retreat, cooking school or even wedding reception.

Each one has its super king-size bedroom, its own kitchen and ensuite bathrooms and even an outdoor firepit, and guests get a welcome hamper.

Each one sleeps two people and starts from £195 a night.

Make sure to head out to your private deck – you'll be able to spot families of otters as well as grey and common seals.

You might even spot some dolphins, and birdwatchers can spot hundreds of different species.

WildLuing, which claims the island is the "best kept secret," was launched last year by Emily and Jack, along with the help of their family.

Having lived on the island for three generations, their next plans include a sauna.

There are lots of other activities on the island outside of the resort too, including High Point which has the "best view" of Scotland.

Many of the beaches are home to smooth pebbles that make it perfect for skimming stones – with the World Stone Skimming championships on a nearby island.

Most people who visit WildLuing have raved about it, saying they are going to return.

One person said: "If you're looking for the most idyllic, authentic and remote Scottish experience, then look no further."

Another said: "One of the most incredible places for a relaxing week away! It was amazing to wake up with a view of the ocean from my bed."

Another island in Scotland has been dubbed the "Hawaii of the North" thanks to its surf.

And here's an island in Cornwall that's like travelling back to the 1970s.
