This traditional and comfortable cottage was better equipped than my own house! The owners had thought of everything. The views including the loch to one side and across to Duntulm Castle and beyond on the other were terrific. It was what I needed to decompress from an overworked and stressful time. I slept like the proverbial top and went home feeling refreshed.
My mum and I had a lovely short break at the coastguard cottages.Although it sleeps nine and there were only two of us, this cottage still felt cosy. Very well stocked with fresh fruit, bread, milk, all the essentials and more!
Andy was the perfect host, very helpful but not intrusive at all. Gave us useful advice on things to see, buses, and where to run etc.
The cottage itself has a open fire with logs etc provided, and comfy sofas. You could happily while away the day here while it’s blowing a hoolie!
The cottage is fairly remote right on the northern tip of Skye, and feels a bit end-of-the-earth-ish, however good roads connect to Portree and the sights, although bear in mind it takes a little while to drive these distances.
Perfect for escaping for a few days or longer, we would definitely stay again.
