“A peaceful and cosy home-from-home with spectacular views.”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

“Cosy cottage with roaring fire”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

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.

Hi Catherine & mum,
Greetings from a lovely dry, bright and amazingly warm Autumnal day here on northern Skye.. or 'the end of the world' as you call it!
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your wee break with us in HUNISH Coastguard Cottage... as you say it's so cosy and comfortable when the 'Scotch Mist' is blowing past or on a winters eve in front of a real fire.
Keep putting the miles (or is it K's in these days) and we'll see you at the Skye Half Marathon next year.
Have a great winter and best regards to mum.
My sincere thanks,
Andy

On arrival, cozy light burned in all the rooms, the heating was on and it was nice and warm. The house and especially the kitchen are perfectly equipped. Nothing is missing! The fridge was full (milk, water, tea, coffee, butter, bread, jam, fresh fruit ...). There is wood in front of the fireplace. Red wine and chocolate on the mantelpiece. All rooms are super comfortable and extremely clean and well maintained. We have never seen such a fully equipped holiday home. Incredible! Many thanks to Andy for this wonderful stay. The location is great. Here you have great peace and can walk great.

Hi Annett and 'crew'....
I am so pleased you all loved our cosy Coastguard cottage. I fell in love with Duntulm about thirty years ago and it is still just as special today. Wonderful views, walking & wildlife. Thanks for looking after 'Lady Grey' the Coastguard cat and YES.... you must come back again for longer.
My thanks & best regards,
Andy. Andrew Butler.

Hi Gerd,
And greetings from a bright and breezy autumn afternoon here on the fabulous Isle of Skye.
VIELEN DANK for your excellent review of 'HUNISH' Coastguard Cottage. It was great meeting you, Annette and your lovely family. I am so pleased you had a great time with us in this special and wonderful corner of Skye. Do keep in touch and we'll look forward to you joining us again for another 'breath of fresh air'!
My thanks & very best wishes to you all.
For those without fluent German, here's a translation of Gerd's review...
"All around beautiful!"
"It was exactly as it appears in the picture. And actually even better. The house is super furnished, the kitchen things etc. basic or even noble (brass faucets!). To the ocean 5 minute walk. - So whoever is looking for solitude, and above all rest, is exactly right here. Oh so - Our "host" Andy was super helpful and nice. He looks a little like the brother of David Bowie. What more do you want..."

Thank you Gerd.
Andy (or 'Ziggy')
