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

It's been a mad few months so I have decided to take some holiday time for day trips to explore Skye and Scotland further. We will be closed from Friday 14th August until Monday 31st August for our annual holiday. No orders will be processed during this time. Any orders received will be dispatched w/c 31st August.
If you are ordering wedding or party favours for a future date then just order as normal and I will get back to you when we re open.
The tablet shed will also be closed during this time.
Thanks for all your support.
Donnie.

Across the road from Auld Mission Cottage, is Hazelbank Self Catering, a one bedroom apartment. The open plan living area has a picture window to enjoy the stunning view and the sunsets, which have been very prolific recently. The apartment has been furnished with comfort in mind and a great experience. It will be open again from September.

Waternish Farm
At 7.00am the 'Go to St Kilda' boat leaves the jetty at Stein and passes in front of Waternish Farm on its way to St Kilda, a four hour journey across the Minch and out into the Atlantic. Whoever was on the boat trip today would have had a memorable journey.

An evening stroll

"We came by the Fairy Bridge upon Waternish and I set down in my journal that we are entered into this enchanted world where land and sea and sky conspire to steal your heart and take your breath away... "
