Coorie is a beautiful architect-designed house situated on the edge of the Tormore Forest in Ardvasar. The house offers fantastic coastal views to mainland Scotland and Mallaig. This part of the island is home not just to some of the best scenery that the island has to offer, but also award-winning restaurants and other attractions which will cater for every taste.  

Completed in July 2021, this sleek and serene hideaway has it all; eco-friendly air source heating system, under-floor heating in the bathroom, ultra-insulation, Smart TV, WiFi and a wood burner, making it warm and comfortable, no matter what time you choose to visit. Tastefully and stylishly furnished throughout, the property offers contemporary accommodation for two guests.  The house has been positioned to take full advantage of the views, with the large windows in the spacious open-plan living area enjoying views to the sea. 

The bedroom also looks out to the sea and has a king size bed, and quality bed linen and towels are provided. The bathroom has a lovely double-ended bath and a spacious walk-in rainfall shower. Outside, the patio area has a table and seating, and off-road parking is available.

The Sleat peninsula is also known as ‘the Garden of Skye’, for its lush, green scenery. This is the perfect place to immerse yourself in nature, with many outdoor activities available, including kayaking, shooting and fishing. There are lots of hiking trails to explore some of the islands most beautiful spots, with both coastal and woodland routes available. From the southern tip of the peninsula, the Point of Sleat, there are gorgeous views across the sea to the Small Isles.

There are plenty of attractions for those who prefer to spend time indoors. This is the former territory of the MacDonalds of Sleat, who had their base at Armadale Castle. Here, you can learn about their history at the Clan Donald Centre and meander around its beautiful gardens. Whisky connoisseurs can tour the Torabhaig Distillery and sample some of their “water of life”. Spend the evening with good food and drink at the The Inn @ Àird a’ Bhàsair, only 2.5 miles away from Coorie.

Living in such close proximity to nature, protecting the planet is important to the islanders of Skye. The family team at Scouting for Buoys collect washed-up items from the shore and turn them into beautiful works of art. Meanwhile, the well stocked Armadale stores (3 miles away) offer plastic-free refilling stations for a variety of products and freshly baked bread brought over on the morning ferry from the Mallaig Bakehouse.

Despite being a peninsula, Sleat is an excellent base for exploring Skye and the Western Highlands. There is easy access to the rest of Skye and its world famous attractions, including the Cuillin Mountains, the Quiraing and the island’s largest village, Portree. Coorie is only a few miles south from the ferry terminal, where you can take a short 30-minute ferry to Mallaig, known for its breathtaking beaches. From here, there are onward connections to Fort William, the West Coast and the isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum.

Our second time staying at Coorie and it was as lovely as the first time. Being there in the winter, the excellent heating system and cosiness was just perfect. No bin liners provided and also no dishwasher tablets so remember to take your own if you're staying. The heated towel rail was broken so the tumble dryer came in handy. Overall a lovely, comfortable cottage in a beautiful spot.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and feeback on Coorie. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We have contacted the owner who apologised that there were no bin liners and dish washer tablets, as they are normally provided . They are aware that heated towel rail needs a new heating element which has been ordered and will be in full working order again shortly.

This is a lovely cottage in a very beautiful area of the Aird of Sleat and with amazing views over the Sound of Sleat. It is in a quiet area along the peninsula, just perfect for relaxing and wildlife watching.

Had a fantastic holiday at Coorie in Skye. Beautiful house with amazing views and definitely with a bit of luxury. Had seven days of sunshine on Skye in a wonderful location. Idyllic.

Our first word as we went through the door was, "wow!" This "cabin" is both fantastic and slightly aggravating.... Fantastic because it's so very comfortable, beautifully equipped and very tastefully decorated but slightly aggravating because you just know that your wife will be logging away all the lovely features and insist they are added to your own (now slighly down-graded) home. The comfort here is amazing; the weather on Skye is unpredictable to say the least but inside Coorie its always warm and quiet, despite half of one side being glass. Talking of glass... the view is to die for. The rocky shore is about 300yds away and can be reached fairly easily through the bracken. The bathroom; luckily we've changed our bathroom in the last 8 months or so (after a holiday in Yorkshire!). Good job too because the bathroom is large and the bath big enough to replace the ferry from Kylerhea! The bed was large and comfortable (Audrey took a photo of the mattress label so that we can get one!) and was always a comfortable temperature and quiet, despite us having stormy weather and very mild nights. The surrounding area was perfect for us... plenty of wildlife, very quiet and beautiful views. In 30 years of travelling around various parts of the UK, we have NEVER had a property this good. It's absolutely amazing and shouldn't be judged by it's cabin-like appearance from the outside. You MUST take binoculars and you WILL fight over the view from the armchair in front of the window. We are now at home in Dorset and Audrey is preparing me a, "to do", list. Joking aside, this place is fabulous.

A fabulous week at this beautiful new cabin. An excellent location to explore the Sleat peninsula with lovely quiet walks directly behind up into the forest and in front to the sea. The house was wonderfully warm with everything we needed for the week. Great shower. A nice big parking area. The nearby community shop in Armadale was excellent and easy to top up supplies during the week.
