Holiday Rental House
A unique and thoughtfully designed property has been recently constructed in the perfect location to take advantage of the world famous Waternish sunsets, fine dining at the Lochbay Restaurant and the traditional Highland ale house, the Stein Inn, both 5 minutes walk down the hill. It should be noted that Lochbay has just been taken over by the Michelín starred chef Michael Smith of Great British Menu fame. Prepare to be blown away by the enormous open plan living space which flows seamlessly outdoors to an equally spacious deck overlooking the bay, its islands and across the Minch to the Outer Hebrides strung like jewels along the horizon some 30 miles West. The house benefits from some impressive 'eco' credentials.

It should be noted that Lochbay has just been taken over by the Michelín starred chef Michael Smith of Great British Menu fame. Prepare to be blown away by the enormous open plan living space which flows seamlessly outdoors to an equally spacious deck overlooking the bay, its islands and across the Minch to the Outer Hebrides strung like jewels along the horizon some 30 miles West. The house benefits from some impressive 'eco' credentials. With triple glazed windows, extreme levels of insulation and draft proofing throughout, very little energy is lost from the highly efficient Air Source Heat Pump and wood burning stove. The entire floor space is heated from the slab below, and each individual room has independent thermostat controls to keep the ambient temperature exactly as you desire. The well equipped kitchen which overlooks the living space has been designed with the social inclusion of the chef in mind and will suit the keenest culinary requirements. The house in general includes all mod cons to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. The three spacious bedrooms are all ensuite and enjoy uninterrupted floor to ceiling views across Lochbay to the horizon.More

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.
