    “I had a wonderful week at 1A Kylerhea.”

    The cottage was beautiful, a real gem in a perfect position on the shore of Kyle Rhea. It was suitably remote for my taste and I enjoyed a week's holiday undisturbed except for the sound of the waves, the call of the Sea Eagle and the antics of the otters on the rocks. The Kylerhea-Glenelg ferry does not run in the winter so the area was super-quiet. The road down from the main road was 7 miles of single track with passing places.

    The cottage was beautiful, a real gem in a perfect position on the shore of Kyle Rhea. It was suitably remote for my taste and I enjoyed a week's holiday undisturbed except for the sound of the waves, the call of the Sea Eagle and the antics of the otters on the rocks. The Kylerhea-Glenelg ferry does not run in the winter so the area was super-quiet. The road down from the main road was 7 miles of single track with passing places. The views from the road were phenomenal and I wasn't able to resist stopping to take photographs even after a week of driving the road back and forth. It may not be for a nervous or new driver, especially in snow/ice so you should consider this when choosing whether Kylerhea is for you. It was completely safe though and a joy from my point of view. I rarely met another vehicle along the 7 mile stretch. The only thing I would change about the cottage is that there is no heating at all in the kitchen. This is probably fine for most of the year but I must admit it did put me off cooking too many meals in there during my February stay - the bitter cold was even off-putting when I dashed through for the wine! The rest of the cottage was lovely and toasty though with electric heating and a lovely wood burning stove. The bedroom was cosy and I slept like a log in the very comfortable bed. TV reception was great and Wi-Fi was very good for such a remote area. If it dropped out then a quick re-set of the modem and it was OK again - no problem at all. There is no mobile reception and so the owners have thoughtfully provided a landline for emergencies etc.so you don't feel too cut off. I was welcomed with wine and chocolates and a warm and lit home for my holiday - I was in heaven from the moment I put my suitcase down. Locally, I would recommend a drive down to Elgol Beach and a wildlife cruise on the Stardust Boat trips from Portree - both were memorable for me.

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 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.

About the location

BROADFORD

Portree 29 miles.

Skye's second largest village, Broadford lies in the shadow of the Red Cuillins and spreads itself along the southern side of Broadford Bay. Views extend out to the Isle of Pabay and more distantly to the Applecross mountains on the mainland. The village caters well for the tourists with shops, hotels and colourful craft stalls. Close by is the little village of Elgol, which enjoys 'the finest view in Britain' - the end of the Cuillin Ridge seen across Loch Scavaig. From Elgol pier take an unforgettable boat trip to Loch Coruisk in the heart of Cullin Mountain Range. The nearby Sleat Peninsula known as the 'Garden of Skye' has many attractions and a ferry link to the mainland - Armadale to Mallaig.
