No 2 Kyles Paible is situated on the west side of the island and as such enjoys fantastic sunsets in the evening.
A recently (2012) fully refurbished cottage, it sits on a working croft in the idyllic, sleepy village of Kyles.

The house has oil central heating throughout and has an open fire in the dining sitting room. Coal and wooden logs are available at the local store if required. All cooking utensils, linen and towels are available and included in the price.
There is ample parking space for 3 vehicles and the house is only yards from the shore with literally miles of sandy beaches from your doorstep. It is 1 mile to the shop in Bayhead, where groceries, fresh daily produce and heating fuel can be obtained. There is also a garage selling petrol and diesel.
Prices vary from £400 - £650 per week depending on time of year with entry generally from Saturday to Saturday.
No smoking indoors please. No pets allowed upstairs or on soft furnishings and must be kept well behaved at all times.
For those interested in fishing there are plenty brown trout / salmon lochs and the area is ideal for the sailing fraternity with Heisker (Monarch Isles) within kayaking distance.
All around is a wide variety of wildlife with the RSPB Reserve in nearby Balranald and a range of seabirds along the many shores. There is also scope for moderate climbing on the moorland hills.
For eating choices there’s either a number of restaurants within a short driving distance, bring your barbeque for the warm summer evenings or there’s good facilities in the cottage itself.
