Isle of Skye Butt & Beinne for (second !) honeymooners or, getting away

Cottage in Isle of Skye with kitchen
This charmingly modernised 1880's-built 'Butt & Beinne' (letting Saturday-to-Saturday) and is a romantic place for (second !) honeymooners or self catering holidaymakers to get away from it all. The bedroom has been part re-furbished in Winter of 2019. Sit and watch the tides from the picture window, visit the Otter Hide or, on walks along the shore, see seals and sea eagle. At night you may see Red Deer and even one of our resident Pine Marten or two. There are breathtaking views in every direction and the cottage is reached over a sturdy wooden bridge. It is around 90 meters from the shore. Arrive 'Over the sea to Skye' in true romantic fashion via the five car ferry from Glenelg (operating only from Easter to October but check with Glenelg-Kylerhea Ferry website first.) A very scenic 10 mile drive takes you to a full range of shops, restaurants, hotels and a bank in Broadford, whence boat and fishing trips are available from the pier there. For full internal shots, please contact owner for link. We listen to constructive criticism and work constantly to upgrade our facilities to make your stay as enjoyable as we can.
There is Storage Heating for the Winter months, which keeps the house warm and makes it a tranquil refuge for writers and thinkers.
EXTRA ! - The RSPB and Forestry Commission have a hide located next to the Kylerhea wildlife hide car park. The hide is staffed five days a week by RSPB information assistants, who provide comprehensive information on the local wildlife. The hide overlooks the ferry and the Kylerhea narrows and during the summer a pair of sea eagles can regularly be seen hunting for fish over the strong tidal flows. The hide also offers the chance of seeing many of the wildlife species including seals, golden eagles, porpoises, otters, common and bottlenose dolphins etc. Basking sharks have even been seen in the kyle. The inside of the hide has displays and information about Scottish wildlife. Younger children can use free backpacks with binoculars, bug boxes, magnifying glasses and a fun set of activities devised by local school children. The RSPB/FCS hide is open from Easter to September and admittance is free of charge.
N.B. To confirm: Kylerhea is actually on the Isle of Skye, which some of the comparatives given are not, such as those over in Glenelg on the mainland.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers DVD players and an iron/ironing board. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower.

Cosy getaway
This is a lovely spot to get away from it all. It is clean & cosy. You won't be hassled by the phone or Facebook. You may see wildlife (seals, maybe an otter, heron & other seabirds) down on the beach 50yards away. Autumn sunrises have been lovely too. And Richard, the owner has been very helpful.

Charming croft in a beautiful, quiet location
If you enjoy wildlife this croft with a scenic outlook would be for you. With local knowledge we were able to view otters most nights, spotted sea (fish) eagles, golden eagles and not to mention an abundance of seals. We took a ferry trip over to Glenelg with our bikes, great pub for lunch, and saw broch (2000 year old dwellings). Lovely beach for any children over there. Visited the Black Cuillins for some great walks. Fairy pools although beautiful were over run with tourists. Seven mile single track drive to croft was exilerating.
