Isle of Skye Holiday Cottage, Self Catering Accommodation

Explore the area, there are many breathtaking local walks both for the beginner and seasoned walkers alike.

 

We have mountain bikes for hire from as little as £5 per day and Geary is a perfect spot to set off from for a relaxing cycle, the single track road has very light traffic and provides a safe environment for enjoying yourself, as do miles of forestry track close by.

 

Behind Number 19 is Ben Geary which is well worth the hike to enjoy the view from the top, go in the opposite direction and you can find yourself down at Aros Bay and its unspoilt sandy beach,a  lovely picnic stop.
