This place is perfect. The house is every bit as beautiful as the pictures make it look. Simple and clean, the decoration is tasteful and doesn’t detract from the view. The kitchen is very well equipped and Thomas left us a welcome package of milk,...More

About the neighborhood
The village of Stein is in the north west corner of Skye located on the B886. It is 8 miles from Dunvegan and 22 miles from Portree. Stein itself is a conservation village which was designed originally by Telford as a model fishing at the end of the 18th Century. Our house overlooks the village from up high.

The village boasts the renowned Loch Bay Seafood Restaurant and also the oldest inn on Skye, the Stein Inn. It is home to a wealth of beautiful shorelines to walk along, as well as forestry walks to enable you to see the amazing wildlife including eagles, otters and corncrakes.

Railway: Kyle of Lochalsh: 49.7 mi
Ferry: Armadale: 49.7 mi
From the bridge or the ferry, take the road to the north of the island through Portree, following the signposts for Dunvegan. Before you get to Dunvegan, turn off down the peninsula signposted 'Waternish'. The house is on the right above the road above the village of Stein. If you put IV55 8GD into your Satnav it will take you to the road end, with our house, 'Salt Winds', signposted at the turn-off. The house is the wedge shaped larch clad modern construction just as you go up the hill, the second property on the left.
