LUXURY COTTAGES ON THE ISLE OF SKYE


A luxury escape from modern life. Our one-bedroom cottages are designed for couples looking for an indulgent romantic break. Set in the stunning and remote coastal village of Geary, yet only ten minutes drive from Skye's only Michelin star restaurant and the island's oldest pub.

The Blackhouse and The Croft House are two individual luxury cottages available as self-catering accommodation on the beautiful Waternish peninsula of Skye overlooking Loch Snizort.

Both cottages have lovely antiques, custom furniture, local tweeds and designer linens. Grass-turfed roofs, ancient stone walls and beautifully designed interiors have fully equipped, hand-crafted deVol kitchens and luxury Fired Earth bathrooms.

The Isle of Skye is a truly magical place. It is consistently named one of the world’s most spectacular islands. But there are still many areas where you won’t find a soul. The largest of the Inner Hebrides, Skye is celebrated for its dramatic coastline, majestic Cuillin mountains and captivating wildlife. Loch Coruisk is said to be the best view in Britain. Take a boat trip deep into its heart.

Waternish Peninsula has some of the best coastal walks on the island. Look out for minke whale, dolphins, puffins, basking sharks, porpoise, sea and golden eagles, seals and otters. Walk straight from your front door to some of the most dramatic coastal views.

The Isle of Skye has an incredibly varied landscape with other-worldly sights across the island including Fairy Glen, the Quiraing, The Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock. Coral Beach is made from crushed white coral, contrasting with Caribbean-blue waters when the sun shines. Neist Point and Lighthouse mark the most westerly point on Skye.

Visit Dunvegan Castle and Gardens, the seat of the MacLeod Clan for over 700 years. Learn about the magic fairy flag and see the Fairy Bridge and the Fairy Pools.

Skye is a world-class food destination. Scotland’s most northerly Michelin star restaurant, The Loch Bay is nearby. The island’s oldest pub, The Stein Inn is just next door. Treat yourself at the world famous Three Chimneys.

Visit local art and craft studios and discover painting, jewellery, glass, pottery, artwork, knitwear and weaving. Plan your walking trip around visiting the local makers.
