Further details indoors

Make full use of the modern fitted kitchen complete with fully integrated appliances and cookware for the most enterprising chef. The living area is arranged to make the most of the fantastic scenery on offer with a comfy L shaped couch to stretch out on and relax or a luxurious armchair to lounge in. For your entertainment there are various board/card games made available, freeview TV, an excellent book selection and a huge DVD library of over 350 titles covering most major releases over the past decade of various genres. Also on the ground floor is a modern shower room and W/C. A space saver staircase leads to the 1st floor bedroom where a quality king size Sealy bed and Egyptian cotton bed linen is provided for maximum comfort and luxury. French doors lead off the front of the bedroom to the balcony where you can treat yourself with breathtaking sea views and the morning sunrise.

Further details outdoors

At the front and side is a large area where guests may park a car or sit out in the sun, a path leads around the building with Skye marble chips all round. At the rear of the 1st floor a door leads across a walkway to the private garden area with its neat lawn, fantastic views and sunsets, a perfect retreat to have an evening barbecue, dine alfresco or simply sit in the sun enjoying a good book or glass of wine. The clifftops and sea beneath Eagle View have an abundance of wildlife. It is common to observe Golden and Sea Eagles passing by and hunting at the bottom of the croft and buzzards hunting around the chalet. Eagle View directly overlooks the Ascrib Islands a complex of skerries, islets, undisturbed mainland shores and offshore islands in north-west Skye consistently support a breeding colony of the common seal Phoca vitulina. The site represents one of the larger discrete colonies of common seals in the UK, holding around 2% of the UK population. Due to the elevated position of Eagles Nest you have an unspoilt view over the sea below; it is common to see a wide variety of seabirds, whales, dolphin and porpoise in the waters below. And if you are interested in fishing then several trawlers and creel boats fish in the Loch and is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wishing to observe how the seafood they well may be eating in their local restaurant is caught.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Skye sits on the north west coast of Scotland and is famous for the Cuillin mountains, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the "Skye Boat Song" and its breathtaking scenery. Weather wise Skye can have all seasons in 1 day, and sitting in the Gulf stream is fortunate to have mild winters.

Geary

Waternish is spoilt with places to visit, there are several fantastic coastal and woodland walks with an abundance of interesting wildlife to be seen, Trumpan Churchyard where the infamous battle of the "Spoiling of the Dyke" occurred, the Thomas Telford village of Stein where you can eat and drink in the oldest inn on Skye and Skyeskyns, the only 5* tourist attraction on the island. Go 15 mins away by car and you get to Dunvegan Castle and the Coral beaches. And for all food lovers the world renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant is only 20mins away and the Lochbay Seafood Restaurant is 5mins away.

“Fantastic!”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

Perfect cottage in stunning location. Cottage is of a high standard with everything you could wish for. Owners are very friendly and helpful and the welcome hamper was the best we have ever had. Highly recommended!

“A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Skye”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2012

We had a lovely holiday in Skye. The cottage was lovely, really cute with everything you would need. The welcome hamper was a lovely additional touch. We really enjoyed out time in the cottage and would definitely recommend staying there.

“Great hosts and accommodation”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

Great location all mod cons for single traveller wishing a base. Scary stairs not for the infirm and the bedroom mezzanine is low on head room. Im 5ft6 and still managed to crack my head on the velux. Make you you check out Stein Inn for drinks and food and the fish rstaurant next door. John and Catriona are very helpful and hospitable.

“Spotless, modern house in perfect location”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

Lovely modern house which was clean and had everything we needed. The welcome hamper of local produce was brilliant. Fantastic location within Skye with gorgeous views. Very comfortable bed. Owners were so friendly and really helpful with local knowledge. Good base to strike out to other places in Skye.

“Peaceful, Picturesque & Perfect”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

We immensely enjoyed our week at Eagles Rest. The chalet is modern, well-equipped and cosy for two. It is in the middle of the small, quiet village of Geary but is in a raised position behind the road, allowing privacy and excellent views over Loch Snizort and even to Uig on a clear day. The welcome hamper from our hosts was a lovely surprise and nice touches such as dressing gowns, books, DVDs and games mean it would be tempting to stay in the chalet, only popping out to get supplies from the local residents' produce boxes - such as eggs, bread, jam and cakes. However we had beautiful weather so we decided to make the most of it and venture outdoors! Our walks in the village meant we had the opportunity to meet friendly locals and lots of friendly dogs. We also saw livestock, buzzards, foxes and we think we may have spotted porpoises or dolphins in the bay on one occasion. A nice walk locally was down to the shore via the next village of Gillen. Further afield there is the village of Stein where we visited the Stein Inn for a pint and the Loch Bay restaurant for dinner. Close to Dunvegan, Eagles Rest is handy for exploring the rest of the island. A good round trip was to Uig, on to Staffin via the Quiraing, Kilt Rock and the Storr, then back through Portree. The Talisker Distillery at Carbost was a good way to spend the only rainy morning followed by lunch at the Old Inn and a walk at Gelnbrittle Beach. We also enjoyed the drive to Colbost and Glendale, stopping off at the Three Chimneys for lunch, before going to the Toy Museum and Neist Point. If you are in the area I would recommend Ceitag's for tea and home-made cake. An absolutely perfect holiday and probably our best yet. We hope to return soon.
