There are four properties within The Steadings which range in size from 1 – 3 bedrooms.
The Steadings are made up of four spacious, individual cottages. Located on the famous Trotternish Peninsula, this is one of the most beautiful spots on the Isle of Skye. The Steadings are situated at the end of a quiet road with panoramic sea views out towards the west of the island and the Outer Hebrides.
The buildings were once used as steadings by Monkstadt House. They were redeveloped using the original stone work and still feature a raised circular horse walk which provided the power for the granary mill. At one time the mill provided all the grain for the whole population of the island.
Monkstadt House and the Steadings are steeped in history. There are stories of secret elopements, smugglers and of course the hiding of the renegade Bonnie Prince Charlie is linked to Monkstadt and the Steadings. Once the home of the Clan MacDonald, this was also the place where Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald decided to dress Charlie as an Irish maid in order to escape from the Redcoats.
