From the owner

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 and to the side.

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