Web Finds | KATE WINSLET ON HER FAVOURITE SCOTTISH ISLAND

Actress Kate Winslet writes exclusively for Conde Nast book Chic Stays about how she found luxury on Eilean Shona, the rugged Scottish island where J M Barrie wrote Peter PanEilean Shona, Scotland

"Luxury. Some of us are comforted by that word, some of us are deeply panicked by it, and others live in the hope of one day finding it. However, the majority of people I know are enthralled by the idea of luxury well earned at the end of an adventure-filled day and the uncertainty of the wild outdoors - the perfect combination of which can be found on Eilean Shona's magnificent isolated shores. A spectacularly beautiful isle on the west coast of Scotland, from which Eigg, Muck and Rum can be seen in the distance like giant sea monsters emerging from below, it has been owned and loved by Vanessa Branson and Robert Devereux for more than two decades. Their friends, children and children's friends have filled every crack and peak with memories over the years, the presence of which can be keenly felt as you wander through Peter Pan forests and throw yourself against strong winds on remote white-sand beaches. This is the kind of magic one longs for, looks for and seldom finds. To reach it, leave your car behind on the mainland and hop aboard the island boat, for there are no roads on Shona."
