'The Captain's House' is a two-bedroom, self-catering flat occupying the first and second floors of the traditional Captain’s 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.
