Eagle's Rest is a cosy, modern retreat on the secluded Waternish peninsula. Offering panoramic views across Loch Snizort and the Ascrib islands, our location is ideal for exploring Skye or simply relaxing with a beautiful view and amazing wildlife.

Perfect for a romantic getaway, the superking bed can be reconfigured for twin beds if required. Well-equipped with a kitchen, TV, WiFi and mobile signal (rare on Skye!), parking, as well as a private garden and small balcony.

The space
Eagle's Rest has an open-plan kitchen/lounge/dining area and bathroom downstairs. Upstairs, there is a bedroom with built-in wardrobe and access to a small balcony and garden area for your private use- great for watching the sunrise over the loch with a cup of coffee.

Binoculars are provided for nature-lovers. Sea & Golden Eagles, dolphins, seals, whales and even on occasion the Aurora Borealis have all been seen from here.

Electric heating throughout with a feature fireplace keep the house cosy even on the coldest Scottish nights. The bathroom contains an electric shower and heated towel rail. The kitchen is equipped with a ceramic hob, oven and microwave, along with a fridge, coffee machine and all the usual essentials. A washing machine is also provided.

The rooflight window set above the bed is perfect for stargazing during our long winter nights (we are located in an official Dark Sky area).

For those that need to keep in touch with the outside world, we have unlimited free WiFi and a desk area for work. Geary is also one of the best-served locations on Skye for mobile signal.

Due to building regulations, the internal space-saving staircase to the bedroom is steep and not suitable for those with mobility problems. There is an additional external staircase to the bedroom which is much easier to navigate with suitcases etc (we're happy to assist with any lifting). Please also note that there is restricted head height in parts of the bedroom due to the sloping ceiling.

Eagle's Rest is a self-contained annex situated in an elevated position behind our main house. However, it is very private and not directly overlooked with its own separate parking and garden areas.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but due to the steep staircase Eagle's Rest is only really suitable for dogs accustomed to remaining downstairs.

Other things to note
Although we are happy to host short stays, please don't expect to "do" Skye in a single day. Skye is a large island and it takes a long time to get around. We would strongly recommend staying for at least 3 nights if you'd like to visit the most popular tourist sights.
We also offer a discount for stays of at least a week.

Location

Hallin, Scotland, United Kingdom

Ideally located for exploring Skye, the quiet township of Geary is equidistant between the Old Man of Storr and Neist Point. Geary is a friendly crofting community, with many local products (eggs, jam, cakes etc.) available for purchase directly from our neighbours. We have the Michelin-starred Loch Bay restaurant and famous Stein Inn as our local eateries.

Nearby Dunvegan (famous for its castle and coral beach) provides groceries, restaurants, fish&chips, Skye's oldest bakery and other amenities.

Having taken a year off my wife Michelle and I visited the Isle of Skye in 2019 and didn't want to leave! Now hosting from our new home at Geary on the Waternish peninsular. We love the area and can't wait to share this beautiful haven with our guests.
