My son and I have just returned from our holiday to the Isle of Skye. We originally identified this property after a search of various property websites as to where to stay. The cottage description is very accurate. Hunish has recently been renovated to a very high standard of finish and we were so impressed with the level of customer service from Andy who looked after us and made us feel very much at home. It was a nice touch to have food and drink provisions pre-ordered and in place when we arrived. The cottage is very clean, warm and cosy and provided all necessary facilities required if not more. I haven't slept so well for years. The location at Duntulm is quite spectacular. Loch Cleat is immediately outside the property facing east and the ruins of Duntulm Castle faces west with the backdrop of the Outer Hebrides beyond. We had such beautiful weather last week and were able to not only walk parts of the Trotternish but also take full advantage touring the northern part of the island by car and just try to take it all in. Uig and Portree were places to just sit and relax and enjoy. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property whatsoever. Can't wait to return.
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.
