For the couple that doesn't want ‘compact’ on holiday: huge, quirky, detached house on magical Waternish. Four, full height windows offer magnificent, unrivalled views, across the small islands of Lochbay to the Outer Hebrides, beyond. Watch glorious sunsets and sea eagles from the huge deck. Full of local art, plants & Ercol furniture; the log burner ensures year round comfort.

The house looks down on pretty Stein, with its boat trips, Stein Inn and the Michelin starred, Lochbay Restaurant.

Die Unterkunft
All the rooms, with the exception of the bathroom, have far reaching sea views. There is no road between the house and the views, so you will not see cars while enjoying those views. The huge decking, is quiet and peaceful. All the pictures in this listing are taken from the house or decking. Unfortunately, however, the pictures do not capture the size of the place; this is definitely not the compact, bijou version of holiday living; all the rooms are extremely spacious. This detached house is dominated by four large windows, one in the kitchen, three more in the lounge plus a large picture window to the side with its wonderful window seat. A large Ercol table means you can eat and watch the fabulous sunsets. This room has a wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings and a tv with lots of channels. The vast four seater feather filled settee is squidgy soft which you can both stretch out on here.

This is our own home, full of local art and quirky artefacts. It will not be to everyone’s taste, but the neutral holiday home this definitely is not! The house is all on one level with hard wood, bamboo flooring throughout; the ample wool rugs add warmth and comfort. We particularly love the winter in this house, watching the weather sweep across the bay; the changing light on the water is a real joy.

The well equipped, bright kitchen with its full height window has another Ercol table, ideal for breakfast. The kitchen door leads out to the deck which has chairs from which to enjoy those views. We often see the sea eagle hovering in the skies above the house. The kitchen has everything you would expect in a modern kitchen. There is a dishwasher, a double oven, microwave, fridge freezer, coffee machine and washing machine. There is also an armchair for enjoying that view.

The large bedroom has a king sized bed with crisp, white Egyptian cotton bedding. There is ample storage; you will not be tripping over your luggage, here. The en suite bathroom has both a drench shower in a large cubicle, and a comfortable bath. The fitted sink unit with wc has more storage. The quirky art continues to the bathroom.

Logs are provided free, WiFi is free. The TV has the Sky channels including BT Sport and Netflix.

There are ample maps, books, tourist information to help you plan your holidays.

We will clean the house ourselves to ensure it is spotless. All photos, here, are taken on the property.

Zugang für Gäste
The house has its own drive on which to park. A key safe will allow you to arrive at your own convenience.
There are gardens front and back. We are 5 mins away, down in Stein, should you need any help or advice.

Next door is our purpose built, self catering, ‘Blue Moon Studio’, which has its own drive and grounds. There is a privacy fence so the studio is not visible from Overwater House.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
The house is surrounded by Croft land and sheep ( very photogenic sheep as you will see from the photos ) It is important, however, that visitors do not walk beyond the fence. We have agreed with our local crofter that no dogs will ever be allowed in the house. Apologies, we do not allow babies and children.

Waternish, Isle of Skye, Vereinigtes Königreich

We look across at a headland which is still wilderness, occupied by only a few sheep. From certain windows no other houses are visible. If you are lucky you will see eagles, including sea eagles overhead. The whole Waternish peninsula is fascinating: full of walks, bloody history and a range of enticing opportunities. The jetty at Stein offers a number boat trips. You can take a day trip to St Kilda, or one of the fabulous Divers Eye boat trips, around Lochbay. Gordon the skipper is a mine of information and you will take the best photographs of your holiday, on his boat. There are dolphins, seals, porpoises and if you’re lucky a minke whale!

Overwater House is one of the first houses on Waternish which makes travelling to other pleases of interest slightly more convenient. Dunvegan Castle is in the next village, with the famous Coral Beach a few miles beyond.

We regularly walk to Stein, about 30 mins away. We have been known to walk or drive to Stein and get a taxi back if we are spending an evening at the pub or the wonderful restaurant down there.

Skye is ‘Foodie- Heaven’. We have some of the best restaurants in Scotland. The famous Three Chimneys is about 25 minutes drive away. We now have a new restaurant, Edinbane Lodge for that special treat. The Old School Restaurant in Dunvegan and the Edinbane Inn with its Sunday afternoon live music are hugely popular with our guests.

Portree is approximately 35 mins drive away. There are many more eating places there and even an arts centre with live music theatre & cinema.

We retired early and moved to Skye six years ago. We’ve loved living on the top of a cliff, looking out to sea and watching the changing weather and light on the water. We were both teachers although my wife, Jayne has been involved in textiles for the past twenty years, as visitors to Blue Moon Studio or Overwater House will see for themselves. We’ve enjoyed welcoming people to Blue Moon Studio for the past three years. We have had returning visitors from all over the world, even in winter; so we must be doing something right! We are currently living down in Stein helping to project manage the renovation of our son’s house, hence our bungalow, ‘Overwater House’ is available to rent. We are just 5 mins away should our guests need any help or advice.
