Didn't know what to expect but was not ready for what we found. The cottage was beautiful and stocked with everything needed (sorry for drinking most of your coffee Andy but it was nectar!) and plenty big enough. Stunning views abound, could get used to waking up to my own private loch.
A full selection of maps was available for planning sight-seeing trips and walks, but the real knowledge was the owners' head (Andy). An infectious character, Andy was full of local information and told us the best places and walks, even down to parking the car near the re-cycling bins! Smashing fella!
Must call in at The Skye Pie Cafe and try a beef pie, I am a seasoned pie muncher and can say hand on heart that these were special.
All in all a fantastic week, hope to go again.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 29 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We chose the Hunish Coastguard Cottage as our family holiday to Skye this year (8 adults aged between 33 & 75). We had such an amazing time. We can not thank Andy (the owner) enough for his communication and all the additional extras that were provided within the Cottage. I have stayed at many Cottage’s and Villa’s and can honestly say that we were extremely impressed and it is the best I have been catered for. The beds were so comfortable and all had an amazing sleep. The location although quite a drive is fabulous, picturesque and definitely worth the travel. We will all definitely stay here again and I’m not one to stay in the same place twice. The only negative was the 1 toilet (but there was a separate bathroom) because there was 8 of us. The roaring fire with provided coal, logs & kindling was a beautiful focal point, heat and added to the atmosphere. It was a fantastic vacation and family holiday and we can’t wait to revisit either in Summer or around the same time next year for that wintery/Christmas feeling.

Hi Lorna, and greetings from a cosy fireside at the Coastguard Cottages. As you say, there's nothing like a roaring open fire as a focal point on a winters' evening. THANK YOU so much for your kind and lovely review of 'HUNISH' Coastguard Cottage. I am delighted you all enjoyed yourselves in our beautiful wee corner of north Skye... even as autumn turns to winter. To be honest, winter is my favourite time of year here as the island returns to peace and tranquility. Today has been Skye at it's best with blue skies, dramatic clouds, snow on the mountain tops and splendid isolation. Our wintering swans arrived back on the Loch today... always a wonderful sight. You have been super guests and we'd love to welcome you back... so get the diaries out in the New Year and plan another adventure to Skye's shores. My thanks and best regards to you all, Andy, Andrew Butler, SKYE HOLIDAY RENTALS LTD.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 6 November 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Stayed one week. When we arrived we hade a very warm welcome, very informative. The house was clean and the living room had a fire place that made the evenings very cosy. The view from the upper bedrooms was very nice over the sea to the Hebrides.
The host was very friendly and helped when there were questions.
I can clearly recommend it.

“Amazing stay at Coastguard Cottages, Isle of Skye.”
Reviewed 5 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We have just experienced the most wonderful weeks holiday in the Coastguard Cottages at Duntulm, Isle of Skye.
The house had everything we could have wanted and much more. The rooms were all spotless, spacious and very comfortable with lots of attention to detail.
The location at Duntulm is both peaceful and stunning with amazing views. There is a Loch (Loch Cleat) immediately outside the rear of the property and to the front are the ruins of Duntulm Castle with the backdrop of The Minch, The Outer Hebrides, Atlantic Ocean and beyond.
Andy is a perfect host and gentleman who couldn't have done any more to make our stay in Hunish so special. From arriving and entering the Cottage to a welcoming homely feel and a lovely welcome package of Fresh Bread, Milk, Wine, Chocolates, Fresh Fruit and just about everything you could possibly need, it was a truly fantastic week for us and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a holiday in this beautiful part of the Isle of Skye.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property whatsoever. Can't wait to return.
See you next year Andy,

Best Wishes from
Steve, Babs, Michael, Callum, Natalie and Bruno the Hound

Hi Emma, Ronnie and ALL the family,
Greetings from a gloriously sunny autumn afternoon here on Skye...
MANY THANKS for your super review... very kind of you to find the time and think of us. We are so pleased you loved staying at HUNISH Coastguard Cottage and loved the fabulous surroundings here at Duntulm. There's nowhere better for a BBQ in Britain than on the lawn at the Coastguard Cottages with the sun setting over the Western Isles... aND you certainly all (2 legs & four) seemed to enjoy it to the full.
We loved having you stay so put us in the holiday calendar for another visit please. Winter well....
My thanks & very best regards,
Andy.
