Property Description

Historical base

Monkstadt became the seat of the Clan Macdonald in 1730 when they abandoned Duntulm Castle. Nearby are servants’ houses and a steading which includes a granary stable, cartshed and a mill with horse walk. Monkstadt has played a romantic role in highland history. The stables and Granary have been sympathetically converted into first class holiday accommodation. This single storey corner property, accessed via a 1 mile track, is ideal for exploring the mysterious Isle of Skye. Flora Macdonalds monument and ruined Duntulm Castle are nearby. The Quirang and Old Man of Storr encourage walkers and climbers whilst the beauty, wildlife and various outdoor pursuits appeal to all groups. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

17 steps to entrance. All on one level: Living/dining room/kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Shower room with toilet.

Electric central heating and electricity included (by meter reading October-April). Bed linen and towels included. Stereo/CD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Garden furniture. Parking (1 car). No children.

  1. Great location for relaxing; watching a storm or the wonderful sunsets. Aug 2010.
  2. Quiet location, nice views. July 2010.
  3. Well off the the road; almost a mile. Magic sea views. July 2010.
  4. Views good. Tall people would find the sloping ceilings a problem, especially in the bathroom. More up to date local literature could be provided. May 2010.
  5. Clean, comfortable, quiet, lovely views. March 2010.
  6. Great location...great modern decor...would definitly use it again. March 2010.
  7. Well situated, close to inn and hotel for eating/drinking. Lovely views, warm. Oct 2009.
  8. Very pleasing conversion, tastefully decorated. Spectacular outlook. Oct 2009.
  9. Excellent views, warm and cosy. Sept 2009.
  10. Very clean and comfortable. Owners very friendly. Aug 2009.
  11. The property was good value. The only thing which we could possibily critise is the fact that our dog had to be kept on a lead within the grounds of the property. We come from the country and unfortunately he’s not used to being tied up. Apart from this small point we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The property was very private - not overlooked by any other property. The views from the property were magnificent. July 2009.
  12. If you wish peace & quiet outdoor life, scenery, hillwalking, climbing, fishing, cosy nights in or a pint or two in a local pub and don’t mind using your own transport Skye is the place to go. We throughly enjoyed ourselves. March 2009.
  13. I was surprised it was only rated as "good quality" and three arrows! Out of the other properties at Monkstadt, this was definitely the one with the best views over the loch and over towards mountains and the Outer Hebredies.It was extremely tranquil and peaceful as well. The interior was very tastefully done as well. Next time I go back it would certainly be to the same place. June 2007.
  14. Already booked for next year. A fantastic, romantic, fun, lovable, welcoming, friendly, good food, booze, whisky place to be is all i can say. Oct 2007.
  15. Delightful accommodation in a beautiful setting and a helpful owner living next door. Perfect for a complete break away from it all. May 2007.
  16. The Granary is in an idyllic location and very well furnished. Dawn was very helpful and friendly and made us welcome. June 2007.
