The Boathouse is a unique lochside property, set on the shores of Loch Bay, a sea loch on the
Waternish peninsula, a few miles from Dunvegan in the north-west of Skye. The house has
stunning views across the loch to the islands of Isay and Mingay and the distant mountains of
North Uist.

The Boathouse falls within Stein Village conservation area https://www.isleofskye.com/
waternish and the village is within walking distance along the shore. In this peaceful and
unspoilt setting there are regular sightings of native wildlife, while to the rear of the house is a
waterfall and the sheltered, tidal harbour provides a safe mooring for boats.

The Isle of Skye is the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland.
Famous for its romantic, historical associations and magnificent landscape dominated by the
Cuillin Mountains, the island is very popular attracting many tourists throughout the year as
well as those who seek to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in unspoilt and beautiful surroundings.

The Boathouse was built in the late 18th Century and formed part of the Waternish Estate. In
the 1970’s it was converted by the musician Donovan into a house and now combines modern
comfort with the character of a traditional building. There are spectacular views from all the
main rooms and the house is filled with coastal light.
The current owners have maintained the property well and have recently replaced the windows
with double glazed units in keeping with the style of the property and within the stipulations
of the conservation designation.

The house is currently a successful holiday let, managed through the owner’s website https://
lochbayboathouse.co.uk/. The business element of the property is available to purchase by
separate negotiation.
