Description from owner


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. 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.

Reviewed 5 Jan 2018

My friends and I having being renting houses at New Year for over 12 years now. We have gradually increased our budget to more and more comfortable and spacious accommodation. This has been our best yet. The house is beautiful and has a fantastic location above the village of Stein. Views to die for and everything you could want from a holiday let. We have rarely returned to a property we’ve stayed in as we like to try different houses and locations. We could be very tempted to return to Saltwinds. It has been thoughtfully built and furnished by the owner with everything needed for a relaxing break. It was hard to leave.

Owner's reply: Hi Irene, it was a pleasure to host and you will be most welcome to return. Thanks for the kind words

“Amazing ”

We have had a great time during our visit. We were all lost for words as soon as we entered the property. It is even better than the pictures on the site and the view out the windows is stunning. Can't get any better than breakfast a view

Owner's reply: Awesome guys :) It does take your breath away the first time you see those views... from the comfort of the living space! It is very special. We are so glad you loved it too.

We stayed at Salt Winds in Waternish and it was the perfect break for myself and my party of friends. Stunning well equipped house, comfy beds with very high quality en suites. Lots to do and see in the local area and the island of Skye. Will go back for sure. Finally as the description says it has the best views and most stunning sun sets.

Owner's reply: Wonderful, we are so glad you enjoyed Adam. We'd love to welcome you back next year.

This is an absolutely beautiful house in a stunning location! Best location I have ever had when stopping in Skye. Decking area was great to watch the sunsets and look at the night sky!

Owner's reply: Glad you got clear skies to view the milky way. Please come back soon
