A Wee Bit of Leobost History

Leobost is the well-loved family home of the Swire family. The late Otta Swire was a well known author of books on Scottish Legends. When she was a child her father, Sir William Tarn, wrote for her ‘The Treasure of the Isle of Mist’, an enchanting adventure story which is based in this beautiful area. The scenery from the public rooms of sea, mountains and forests, with the islands of Rhum and Canna on the horizon, must be amongst the very best in Scotland. Moreover the variable weather patterns and the clear Hebridean light subtly change the picture every few seconds, and these transient moments always captivate the visitor to this house.

In the centre of the ground floor is a spacious hall decorated with treasures brought back from the Pacific during the historic Challenger Expedition  of 1872-78 by Captain Herbert Swire R.N.
