About this spot
The Gesto house has been recorded as the oldest house surviving on the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands. Build around 1760, the former home of the Macleods of Gesto, evidently once a place of modest elegance with first floor piano nobile and dormered garrets. Apparently, it was the first Skye house to have a slated roof with the slates tied on by heather. The house has long since lost its slates. It is now listed on the ‘Buildings at Risk Register.
