Geary is a scattered crofting community on the eastern side of the popular Waternish Peninsula. Waternish is made up of a number of small crofting townships, and the whole area is full of interesting features, historical locations and enjoyable coastal and forestry walks as well as a number of craft outlets. There is Primary education locally at Knockbreck Primary School and Secondary education at Portree High School (a school bus conveys children to the secondary school).
