Description

Situated on the secluded east coast of the Waternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye, this apartment has uninterrupted views across greater Loch Snizort to the Ascrib Islands, the Trotternish peninsula and further afield out to the Western Isles, with the North Harris hills a particular highlight. Only a few miles across the peninsula is the fabulous water-side hamlet of Stein with its pub, reputably the oldest inn in the Highlands, which is now owned by chef Paul Rankin and a fabulous Michelin starred restaurant run by Michael Smith.
As well as views to die for from the apartment, there is so much more to offer in such close proximity. You can walk off in any direction to explore wonderfully quiet Waternish, with local highlights being the lighthouse at the northern end of the peninsula and also the Geary cliffs where there are both golden and sea eagles in residence.
The wildlife here is truly outstanding. As well as eagles there many other species of bird, but also there are many red deer that roam around the property, and you can spot dolphins, porpoises, minke whales and seals right out the window. The body of water that you view out across is fairly deep so there are many marine species living year-round.
A little further afield you have wonderful Dunvegan and its castle to explore, the world-famous Point Neist lighthouse, Talisker Distillery, Cuillin mountains as well as the Quiraing and Old Man of Storr to adventure around. The north of Skye is full of big-hitters and being based at Geary is an excellent choice right in the middle of it all. But with the bonus of being secluded on the eastern side of Waternish where there is no through road.
So after days exploring you will enjoy sitting back at the apartment reflecting on what a great choice you have made picking this property for you holiday. Equally it is such a great location you will probably want to stay put for many days of your stay simply soaking in the view or enjoying local walks, taking photographs and as many do here, pick up a pencil or paint brush and capturing this feast for the eyes.
The apartment offers comfortable accommodation for your holiday on Skye. It is an excellent choice for a holiday on Skye. Beach 1 mile. Shop 27 miles, pub and restaurant 12 miles.
Apartment 2 can be booked together with Apartment 1 (ref UK31082) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
