The oldest inn on Skye dating from 1790. The Stein Inn is steeped in character and an excellent place from which to check out the local walks, mountains, birdlife and brews – a cheery couthie place to dine and stay. Idyllic setting on shore with stunning waterfront views of the bay.
Turn off down the stunning scenic route to Waternish to stay and dine at The Stein Inn. Their suppers are informal and beautifully cooked – we enjoyed our seafood, steak and sticky toffee puddings whilst loving the glow from the log stove. After a peaceful night we tucked into a very fine breakfast including venison sausages and Scottish cheeses. There was also Golspie Mill porridge and Mallaig peat smoked kippers alongside a great choice of meats from their butcher.
Local beers; malts and produce from land; superb freshly landed seafood, and friendly hosts will make your visit memorable for all the right reasons. It makes you proud to be Scots! They are keen supporters of local food groups and also the Green Tourism Business Scheme. You can opt for a light bite to eat or a full 3 course evening meal – it is always a popular haunt.
In addition to their lovely accommodation above the inn, where they have 5 pretty rooms, they also have a super self catering at http://www.auld-mission-cottage.co.uk Originally the wee primary school, it was then a kirk and now totally refurbished to create a beautiful dwelling.
