Welcome to Visit Waternish, the website for the Waternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye

The magic of Waternish begins with Fairy Bridge, just as you leave the road from Portree to Dunvegan. The spellbinding panorama of Loch Bay leads your eyes to Dunvegan Head, and round to the Minch and to North and South Uist on the horizon. From Trumpan and Geary the views move further north to Harris and Lewis – all these islands being part of the Outer Hebrides or the Western Isles.

Waternish offers more than beautiful views and landscapes. Enjoy the taste of Skye with some of the best fresh local food and drink the island has to offer, as well as some of its leading tourist attractions. Waternish boasts some of the best sunset and night sky gazing locations in Scotland, all of which you can do from the comfort of one of the many Self Catering and Bed and Breakfast accommodations within the area.

Step in and discover the magic… #visitwaternish

Visit Waternish

The magic of Waternish begins with Fairy Bridge, just as you leave the road from Portree to Dunvegan. The spellbinding panorama of Loch Bay leads your eyes to Dunvegan Head, and round to the Minch and to North and South Uist on the horizon. From Trumpan and Geary the views move further north to Harris and Lewis - all these islands being part of the Outer Hebrides or Western Isles. This north-western corner of the Isle of Skye epitomises Scotland at its most rugged, beautiful & breath-taking. There are so many Things to Do from exploring the rich history & wildlife of the area, to visiting the many local shops (tucked away where you least expect them) - seeing artists and craftspeople at work. You may also stay awhile and have a meal at the reknowned sea food restaurant or at the Isle of Skye's oldest inn (pub). We have a variety of accommodation to offer, from Bed and Breakfasts to Self Catering Cottages. Scotland's only working Tannery, shopping galore and stunning sea views. A visit to Scotland is not complete without the Isle of Skye and a visit to the Isle of Skye is not complete without a visit to Waternish

You may have seen in the news in the last few days, the launch of a great new development, The Hebridean Whisky Trail https://hebrideanwhisky.com This is fabulous news for whisky & Gin in the Hebrides. Of course an ideal place to come and stay and sample these whiskies and over a hundred others is Stein Inn. We wish the venture every success.

We are coming up to the time of year when we do 4-day breaks at Creagach Cottage Skye - All Skye's great restaurants stay open most of the year so you can dine well. The views become even more dramatic with the ever changing skies and the roads are quieter. It's a perfect time to visit Skye and especially Visit Waternish. Tag a friend who enjoys good food, wood burner snuggles and aurora spotting.
