Front Desk: The Most Quaint Cottage (You Can Rent!) on Isle of Skye

Creagach Cottage

Creagach Cottage

This past December, Nate and I took a two-week vacation to Scotland. We stayed in gorgeous city center hotels, and an impressive (though if being honest, sort of stuffy) castle in the Highlands. But our absolute favorite property was this simple cottage we rented on the Isle of Skye.

Located in Geary, Waternish, Creagach Cottage lies on an acre of gardens, surrounded by birds, wildlife, and sheep. It was plenty spacious with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a kitchen with modern appliances, and a living space with a wood-burning stove and floor-to-ceiling windows that looked upon the waters. Our fives days went about like this: Wake up and grab eggs from the neighbor’s farm (or croft), hike one of the routes around Isle of Skye, lunch at pub, nap, read by the fire, then make dinner and play board games. This is late 30s.
