Loch Bay Boathouse

description | continued | honeymoon

DESCRIPTION

The house sits on its own at the foot of a grassy cliff, with its semicircular front lawn projecting into Loch Bay, and a small tidal harbour on its north west side.

Although the house is completely on its own, with no near neighbours, it is only a few minutes walk from the delightful village of Stein and lies within the Stein Conservation Area. The village contains the Stein Inn - the oldest inn on Skye - which serves excellent food, local real ales, a wide range of malt whiskies and also the Loch Bay Seafood Restaurant, serving locally-caught fish. The Boathouse is an ideal distance from the village: far enough away for peace and privacy but near enough to be able to go for an evening out without having to drive.

Other nearby attractions are the renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant at Glendale (15 miles away) and Dunvegan Castle, the 800 year old seat of the MacLeod clan chiefs (7 miles). There are frequent boat trips from both Stein & Dunvegan Castle and near Dunvegan is a beautiful white coral beach. The island's capital, Portree, with good shopping facilities, is about 25 miles away - a scenic drive of half an hour.
