Additional Location Information

On dramatic and historic Waternish, Tir nan Og Cottage is in a peaceful and beautiful setting overlooking the sea near the village of Stein - home to the oldest pub on Skye, the Stein Inn with pub meals and fine dining at Lochbay Restaurant plus g, diving, boating, fishing, fine crafts shops, galleries - all only 5 minutes from our cottage. Walking, birding, photography, painting everywhere on Waternish. Incredible Northern Lights. Just being at Tir nan Og cottage is an 'aaah' experience and especially in our spacious garden overlooking the sea. (Ask about our new on-site RETREAT option with a Whirlpool Bath-pampering and relaxation galore!)

Private parking is right next to the cottage. Our automatic outdoor sensor lights make travelling in the dark to and from the cottage very easy and comfortable for guests.

Distances from our cottage: enjoy inspiring walks at low tide around Loch Bay from Stein (5 min), the forestry walk from Fasach to Gillen (3 min); Medieval Trumpan and Waternish Point for lovely walks too (15 min). Meander up the hill behind our cottage to the Iron Age Broch 'Dun Hallin' (enter from the Geary Road also).
Touring nearby Waternish, you are only 15 minutes to Dunvegan Castle, lived in for over 1000 years by the Clan MacLeod; the village of Dunvegan also boasts a wonderful bakery, continental Cafe, boutique grocery and veggie stores, Post Office, two pubs, and the delicious Old School Restaurant. Only 35 minutes each to Glen Brittle or the magical Cuillin Mountains to the south and the Quiraing on Trotternish to the Northeast. Skeabost is only 20 minutes away and boasts a fine golf course open to the public at Skeabost House Hotel. Portree is just another 10 minutes from Skeabost.

From Kyle of Lochalsh, you drive o'er the bridge to Skye - easy accessibility to the island, and no tolls! Only about 1 hr 20 min to our cottage via Portree or via the westerly road from Sligachan via Dunvegan. From Mallaig, enjoy (book ahead) the car ferry to Armadale the southern most point on Skye (lovely woodland walk at Armadale Castle's Clan Donald Center).about 1.5 hr from Armadale to Tir nan Og Cottage. Either route is a stunning, scenic journey.
