Coorie, Ardvasar, Sleat

Sleeps 2 – WiFi - Wood Burner - Sorry No Pets

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.
