Duntulm Cottages are a terrace of three former coastguard cottages located just 400 yards from the seashore on the Trotternish peninsula on Skye, overlooking Loch Cleat to the rear and with views to the Outer Hebrides from the front.

Built in 1933 and renovated in 1997 the cottages are well placed for a holiday home business, and have been run as such. Erisco and Meanish each have sitting room, dining room, kitchen and three bedrooms, while Hunish cottage boasts a similar layout and four bedrooms.
