Otterburn Cottage is a new build two bedroom cottage situated in the peaceful crofting township of Lower Breakish at the south end of the island. You can travel here over the Skye bridge or take a trip on the ferry from Mallaig to Armadale, Sleat.
The cottage is situated approximately 50 yards from the water's edge with stunning views of the islands of Raasay and Pabay and across Broadford Bay and the inner sound.
Fabulous sunsets can be viewed on summer nights and you may be lucky to spot an otter in the early hours or the heron waiting for his breakfast as the tide comes in.
Facilities include one double room with a king size bed and ensuite shower room, one twin bedded room, a bathroom with bath and shower. A cot is also available.
The cottage is named after the family of otters that can occasionally be seen in the sea nearby or the burn (stream) outside the house.
The cottage has a spacious sitting room with a large comfy sofa, an open fire and solid oak flooring. There is also satellite TV, DVD player, WiFi and iPod dock. The cottage is also equipped with a cot, high chair and garden furniture.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob, electric oven, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave oven. There is a dining area within the kitchen.
The cottage also contains a utility room with a washer/dryer. The sitting room and bedrooms are all furnished to a high standard. There is a lockable garden shed for the storage of bicycles, fishing tackle etc.
The cottage is heated by electric storage heaters throughout as well as an open fire in the sitting room.
The cottage is an ideal base for exploring both Skye and Wester Ross. There are many activities to try including hill walking, climbing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and cycling. For the less energetic take a stroll along the beautiful, unspoilt Ashaig beach (only 200 yards from the cottage) and look out for seals, herons, oyster-catchers and other shore birds.
The nearby village of Broadford has all the usual facilities including: supermarket and shops, post office, 24 hour service station and quality gift shops. There is also a doctor and hospital with accident and emergency facilities. Broadford also has a number of hotels, pubs and restaurants.
