The original part of the cottage is around 200 years old and was part of the Stewart Estate prior to its breakup. There was a working farm around the cottage and evidence of this remains in some of the old walls. Renovation of the cottage commenced in the 1970 s when it was bought by Julian Burkett, land steward at Glenveagh Castle, for the then owner of the Castle, Henry McElhinney (of Tabasco sauce fame). Mr Burkett used Glenleary as a bolt hole for the family when life got too busy at Glenveagh Castle.
