This cottage is in a beautiful location and is very well equipped.. It was a very memorable stay.

Fantastic peaceful retreat most definitly go back.. Could not fault any part of it
Ms Mckay, December 2019

This was our second visit, the first 7yrs ago when it was in its first year of being let.. So pleased to see many improvements, such as the comfy settee and easy chair, folding dining table and TV & DVD player on the lower side table (not the wall); all were a big improvement. The equipment had also expanded and was excellent in the kitchen with a large range of saucepans, roasting pans/trays, bowels & cooking utensils, plus cafetière. Some items had not been listed, such as the toaster and hairdryer, so I wished I’d asked before taking these with us. We also took a fan heater for the kitchen - see below. The only drawback to the cottage is the lack of heating in the kitchen. The night-storage heaters in the hall & living room give out an enormous amount of heat during the night (with a boost in the middle of the day). Tip: leave the living room, kitchen & bathroom doors open at night for the heat to circulate everywhere, this will ensure all is warm for the morning. Unfortunately this heat is not sufficient to keep the kitchen warm during the day and even with the wood burner lit in the living room and door open, is still very chilly. A convector heater, such as that in the bedroom, or a fan heater, is very much needed in the kitchen. The bathroom would also benefit from having a wall fan heater installed as the heated towel rail which keeps it cosy while the off-peak heating is on, goes off at 7am and in winter cools down very quickly. Taking a shower later can be a chilly business (particularly as the water pressure is low resulting in the shower not being very good). A wall mounted fan heater, to be used while taking a shower would make it more comfortable. The first time we came I was impressed with the memory foam mattress which was very comfy. I’m afraid that it either needs turning frequently or (7yrs later) possibly replacing now as one side has a definite hollow, which if it fits your stature may not be a problem. It is passable but is something that should be kept in mind for replacement. We love the position of the cottage, right on the side of the loch. Having many health issues it is not possibly for me to walk the mountains, or any distance in search of seeing the wildlife as my husband does. Sitting at the window with its wonderful view of the water provided me with an excellent viewing point for the otters, dolphins, an eagle and a large range of bird life (plus migrants) which I saw. My husband actually saw ptarmigan twice on his mountain walks - very envious!

I think that the cottage and location exceeded my expectations.. The pictures do not do this wee gem of a place justice, it’s idyllic.

Lovely quiet spot, very beautiful area.. Cottage right on the beach as described. Very comfortable with everything you need for a very relaxing holiday.
Mrs Shaw

This cottage is in a stunning location.. Perfect to get away from it all and for wildlife. The owners even provide 2 pairs of binoculars so that you can get a clearer view of the otters etc feeding or basking on the rocks in front of the cottage. If there is a downside the 7 mile road to it seems to go on forever but that's just geography and cannot be changed and the stunning location more than makes up for it when you arrive. Would definitely recommend it to anyone 100%.

Just perfect.. ..
Ms Harding

The cottage is very cute and in a beautiful location.. It benefits from having stunning views all round. The cottage itself has a nice bedroom with a comfy bed and the living room was adequate, but some of the white goods were old and coming to the end of their life from the sounds of them. It made sleeping a noisy experience. We’d also recommend that the directions to the cottage have an update and factor in people who may arrive at night as it took us 30 minutes to find the cottage with several failed attempts in the rain. Overall a nice holiday in a nice location.
Miss Power

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 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.
Mr Holland

A very comfortable, cosy and well equipped cottage with spectacular views all around.. We saw otters almost every day, two together on one occasion and one that we watched while having our breakfast at the table by the window. The owners have thought of everything and made us welcome by leaving a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates.
Mrs Brown
December 2018
This cottage is in the most beautiful location and is full of charm.. However, the bathroom needs completely modernising. The shower cubicle was very small and and offered barely more than a trickle of warm water, which was disappointing after a lovely days walking in the beautiful Scottish mountains.
Miss Robinson

The description and pictures do not do this place justice.. The air, the wildlife, the silence, the skies...a truly enchanted place.
Miss Willis

Great for seal and otter spotting.. Lovely cosy cottage.
Mrs Luckwell
April 2018
Lovely clean, well equipped cottage.. Comfy bed and everything was wonderful. The host left us wine and biscuits....lovely kind gesture. Cottage in an amazing setting. Truly lovely experience. Maps, Books, Games, Tv, Dvd player.... Just 2 of us but would sleep 4 as such a comfy bed settee in sitting room. Wonderful cottage in an amazing setting. Wildlife one would only see on television! Otters, pine martins, foxes and more so close to the cottage. Short walk to an RSPB hide with Andy Law the resident RSPB warden. The turntable ferry is a must for a journey to Glenelg. Highly recommend this cottage and Kylerhea as well.
Mrs Kirby
March 2018
The holiday cottage is lovely and the views are stunning.. The owner left us a bottle of wine, bless her. I can’t wait to go back. The most quiet and relaxing holiday we have ever had. We highly recommend it. Fantastic place.
Ms Whittle
February 2018
If bad freezing temperatures are for cast beware the water supply in the cottage will freeze up.. As it did on Thursday night and remainder of my stay. The bathroom heater did not work. There was no heating at all in the kitchen. Probably this did not help with the frozen water supply. The multi fuel stove had the wrong uni tool. Making it difficult to work the grate riddle. The stove did give out lots of heat with smokeless coal. But rubbish with wood only. Even with the stove full blast the kitchen and bathroom heating were inadequate. The views were superb especially if you like watching fishing boats at night or day. The wild life was also a great bonus. I would stay there again It's should be noted that the drive down to Kylerhea is not for nervous drivers. But again this road gives stunning views.
Mrs Gratton

This is a well equipped, warm cottage in a beautiful location.. It is right next to a pebble beach and we found it perfect for watching the winter weather with daily otter sightings.
Miss Schlotterbeck
December 2017
Beautiful, dream like location, the cottage was clean and cosy with a nice energy, the thoughtful owners had put the lights and heating on and left chocolates and wine which was a very nice touch as we arrived after dark on snowy, very narrow road and it was a little daunting to find.. Everything was very easy with minimal fuss, kitchen was very well equipped for cooking which was lucky as most restaurants were shut over January. The wifi is only strong enough to send or receive phone messages, not to really get on webpages or do anything else, obviously you don't come here for wifi but it's worth keeping in mind if you needed to do some work requiring internet on your vacation. But it's the ideal place to get away from it all and surround yourself with stunning nature. Laika our dog loved it too.
Mr Rushbrook

This cottage is in an amazing location.. Total peace and quiet , we will definitely be returning.
Mrs Pryde

The property was warm, comfy and has everything you need. This cottage has the best location you could ever imagine. Scenery is truly stunning the wildlife was beyond anything we could have hoped for. It's great to open the door be on the shore, a real treat. I don't think anywhere else on Skye would be as amazing!
Mrs Harris
June 2016
WOW WOW WOW, this was our second visit and we love this property, the views are amazing. Sitting outside you don't hear anything and watching the wildlife is fabulous. If we had our way we would never leave this cottage. Our dog loved it as well, he seemed to be so happy and free. Thank you to all. We had a brilliant time and would love to come back.

Peaceful and quiet. It was exactly what was said, right on the beach with amazing wildlife. We even had a snow plough to get us out. So good for the soul, especially after the rush and chaos leading up to Xmas.

Beautiful cottage in an absolutely stunning location. You even get to spot otters and seals just outside on the rocks early morning! We loved our stay here, using it as a base to tour Skye. Definitely walk Quiraing Ridge!
Mr Crowson

Idyllic cottage in a wonderful waterside setting, so peaceful and relaxing with just the wildlife and the passing boats for company. The welcome pack a very nice gesture.

The views from this little cottage are absolutely stunning, it was such a delight to look across the bay even if the weather wasn't the best.

My son, dog and I had a wonderful week at this beautiful cottage. The location is superb! If you are looking for stunning, dramatic scenery with an abundance of wildlife at your feet, a cosy, remote but not isolated place to retreat from the hustle and bustle.... this little place will do the trick! We spotted a seal, a pair of otters (every morning at day break) and lots of different birds. Walked out of the front door straight onto the beach. Up the hill through the woods to the otter hide. Down the road to the footpath, past the river, old stone cottage remains and back out onto the end of the beach where you can find a waterfall! Skye also has a lot to offer, we visited Portree, Broadford the local town and went to the 'fairy pools' at Brittle; they were stunning, freezing cold and gave you wonderful views of the Cullins. The cottage and it's location offered us everything we wanted so we didn't venture away a great deal, a car is a must regardless and a stock up of groceries in Kyle or Broadford if you haven't packed it a good idea. NB: Fuel is available from Broadford and is substantially cheaper than Kyle on the main land so no need to panic buy unless your running empty. My son and I both agreed that the road leading to Kylerhae reminds us of a postman pat road. It is however a little hair raising in places and despite the awesome views it's probably wise to concentrate solely on the road the first time you navigate it. All in all a fantastic property, owned and run by a wonderful family who make it their goal to ensure you have a great holiday. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending 1a Kylerhae to anyone interested in this type of holiday. Superb! Dorset, England

If you like solitude then this is the place for you all you can hear is the sound of the water lapping on the shore and the birds calling, with the odd fishing boat coming and going. The walks are wonderful either along the shore or through the forest taking in the Otter hide along the way. Unfortunately we did not see any Otters but we did see Seals and a couple of Dolphin along with a short glimpse of the Northern Lights, to be fair that was the reason we choose this spot and we were not disappointed. The cottage was warm and welcoming on our arrival with wine and Ginger cookies waiting for us and well equipped and clean. Just be aware it is isolated with the nearest facilities about 10 miles away it was not a problem for us just as we like it. Go on give your soul at treat.
Mrs Dowling

The tranquility, it was wonderful to wake up draw back the curtains to be looking at the sea and standing outside and hearing nothing but the sound of the waves and wildlife. We live on a boat out in the countryside but this beat even that. The daily walk along the shore and through the forest to the otter hide was fantastic. On arrival we walked into a lovely warm cottage with gifts of wine, biscuits and milk these were all much appreciated. We have already recommended this cottage to several friends and family.

I booked this cottage with the minimum of fuss, and when we arrived I was not disappointed. It was cosy and warm once the heaters were on. The Wifi was a plus as well. The location - out of this world - a few yards to the sea. We never saw any of the advertised wildlife, but we were there at a time when they wouldn't be so active. The road was interesting getting to the cottage but not impossible.
