Lochbay House is a handsome coastal property set above the shores of Loch Bay, a sea loch on the Waternish peninsula, a few miles from Dunvegan in the north-west of Skye. The property is in a spectacular setting, its grounds extending to the shores of the loch and with stunning views to the islands of Islay and Mingay, and the distant mountains of North Uist.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.Lochbay House falls within the Stein village conservation area and is just a short walk along the shoreline from the 18th Century, Thomas Telford designed village with its popular inn and Michelin starred Lochbay Restaurant. In this peaceful and unspoilt setting there are regular sightings of native wildlife, while boats can be launched from the lochside to explore the coastline and islands.The current owners purchased Lochbay House in 2016 and have fully renovated the house to an exceptional standard to create very comfortable and beautifully presented accommodation. The open plan sitting room and dining room is the focal point of the house, its understated interior allowing the landscape to take centre stage. The kitchen and bathrooms are well appointed and there are bedrooms on both the ground and first floors. The house has a unique association with The Beatles through their friendship with Donovan who, at one time, owned both Lochbay House and the neighbouring property. Members of the band and their friends in the music industry stayed here.
