The Property

Broadford 10 miles. A nicely presented, detached stone cottage, occupying a stunning seaside location surrounded by mountains in the small village of Kylerhea on the Isle of Skye. This Isle of Skye cottage looks out across the Kylerhea Straits and over to the village of Glenelg on the mainland, and both communities are connected by the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland, a short but exciting journey. This Isle of Skye cottage would suit a couple or small group who really want to savour the spectacular scenery and unforgettable wildlife to be found in this remote Highland community. Well-appointed throughout and offering accommodation all on the ground floor level, this Skye cottage has a double bedroom with views out to sea, a modern cottage-style kitchen and a cosy sitting room with warming woodburning stove and further views of the sea and mountains. Outside your Skye cottage is a lawned garden, and the only sounds to be heard are the lapping of the waves and the snorting of the seals! The Otter Haven Hide is close to your Skye cottage and offers superb scenery and the chance to spot otters, seals and other wildlife. Guests may wish to travel inland and explore the beautiful Isle of Skye with its pretty villages and vibrant capital town of Portree, offering excellent shopping opportunities, or, why not cross the Skye Bridge and explore the village of Plockton and the romantic Eilean Donan Castle? This Kylerhea holiday cottage is a great base from which to discover this scenic part of the Isle of Skye.
