The Captain's House is a two-bedroom, self-catering flat occupying the first and second floors of the traditional Captains House in the centre of the historic fishing village of Stein, a conservation area on the shores of Loch Bay situated on the west coast of the Waternish peninsula of North Western Skye. The flat is traditionally furnished throughout and has electric storage heaters and a real fire (coal & logs), fire alarm cover, and a pay-phone. It sits above our craftshop and gallery. It shares the front door but is securely partitioned off from the ground floor with its own locked door. There is also a private door to the secluded rear garden. Across the road on the shore is a second private garden for the flat residents. Ample parking space is available at the front of the house a...The Captain's House is a two-bedroom, self-catering flat occupying the first and second floors of the traditional Captains House in the centre of the historic fishing village of Stein, a conservation area on the shores of Loch Bay situated on the west coast of the Waternish peninsula of North Western Skye.

The well known Stein inn and Lochbay Seafood Restaurant are yards away and the Captains House has a fascinating history of its own. More

About the neighbourhood
Waternish is still very much a peaceful traditional crofting area, little affected by the passage of time and one of the most unchanged parts of Skye. Magnificent views west to Dunvegan Head, and out over the Minch to the Outer Hebrides, can be enjoyed from much of the peninsula, together with views east across Loch Snizort to Trotternish. Activity: There are plenty of fine walks, long and short in Waternish alone. The area is rich in wildlife and flowers, with eagles, otters and an abundance of orchids. It is also a good base from which to explore North West Skye and visit the Cuillins. There is also a diving centre (Dive & Sea the Hebrides) and a jetty. Eating & Drinking: Stein is well served for visitors. It is home to the oldest pub on Skye, the Stein Inn, which offers real ale, a fi...
