The property

Dunvegan is 11.5 miles.

Single Malt Cottage is a delightful single-story retreat nestled into the coast of Geary, near Dunvegan, with fantastic views and a charmingly isolated feel, ideal for a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life for the tranquillity and beauty of the Isle of Skye.

Resting in an elevated position overlooking the Northern Minch and Ascrib Islands, Single Malt Cottage welcomes you to your new abode, with stunning cliff views and even the chance to see dolphins, minke whales, basking sharks, white-tailed sea eagles, and a wide array of bird life.

The 100-metre cliffs have an ancient natural woodland and a globally rare temperate rainforest.

Primroses are the first to flower, followed by bluebells, wild orchids, wild garlic, and other species of wildflowers.

Unpack into a light and airy open-plan living space, where the patio doors not only let in seas of light but also provide a captivating backdrop as you rest in the sitting area with a coffee and plan the day ahead of you.

There is a well-fitted kitchen with contemporary furniture, ideal for cooking up a storm, which can be served as a romantic meal for two at the dining table.

Alternatively, make the most of the fresh air and dine alfresco at one of the two decking spaces, indulging in a tipple as the sun sets beside the coast, boasting views to inspire the next day's adventures as the warmth of the fire pit warms your toes.

When sleep calls, freshen up in the bathroom before cozying up in a super-king-size bed, which can be set up as a twin on request.

Geary is an idyllic location settled on the wild outskirts of the Isle of Skye.

The location boasts incredible views from the property, as well as a selection of nearby attractions, including Clan MacCleod Memorial Cairn, Trumpan Church, Eas Tardil Waterfall, and the beautiful Coral Beach.

Due to the isolated nature of this property, head over to Dunvegan for all of your holiday essentials, with a local shop, pub, and Dunvegan Castle and Gardens to visit.

Here you can also pay a visit to Waternish Point Lighthouse and forestry walks; there is even a sandy beach if you fancy a swim!

More amenities and attractions can be found at Portree, with a great selection of pubs, restaurants, and bars, as well as independent stores selling wonderful local produce.

There are many stunning places to visit on the Isle of Skye, with an abundance of truly breathtaking scenery.

The Stein, the oldest inn on Skye, and Michelin-starred ‘Loch Bay’ restaurant with its chef Michael Smith are local places to eat.

Skyeskyns and Yurt serves coffee, teas, cakes, and light lunches, while Waternish Farm provides refreshments and walking tours about conservation.

Divers Eye Boat Trips provide excellent opportunities for sightseeing, diving, and fishing trips.

Head to St. Kilda for a unique trip to the famous islands; there are gift shops, art and pottery, and even the ‘Wine Guy on Skye’ who delivers wine to your door!

Make sure to hike through the scenery, wild swim, or mountain bike, with walks including those at the Fairy Pools, Blà Bheinn, Bruach na Frìthe, Glen Brittle Waterfalls, and Talisker Bay Beach, and find out more about local wildlife with Isle of Skye Wildlife Tours.

About the location

DUNVEGAN

Portree 22 miles.

The village of Dunvegan is set in the north west of Skye and contains a mixture of traditional stone and modern houses, along with a selection of shops and hotels. About a mile from the village is Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod, who have continuously occupied the castle since the 13th century. Only four miles away is the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant, a must for all foodies, and just a 10 minute walk away is the very popular Old School Restaurant, also worth a visit. Also in the area are the Cullin Mountains with their fantastic rock forms and pinnacles, which many climbers would put at the top of their list. Other attractions on the Isle are plentiful - visit the Talisker Distillery or Portree, the island’s only town, set around its natural harbour, which boasts an excellent range of shops, hotels and restaurants, and also offers Sea Eagle trips from the pier, which are extremely popular.
