Stein Inn is the oldest inn on the Isle of Skye. It sits in a conservation village that was originally designed by Thomas Telford, the famous Scottish engineer and architect.
This was part of the British Fisheries Society Development for the Highlands and Islands. The Inn sits by the sea and is one of the most popular locations on Skye. The pub was frequented by Donovan in the late 1960s and early 1970s as he lived in the village of Stein and he often sang in the Inn. To get to the Stein Inn you may cross the Fairy Bridge which takes its name from the local legends of fairies in the days when the local landscape was ruled by the Clan MacLeod of Dunvegan, a clan whose legends frequently include fairies – not least the Fairy Flag which is supposedly the Clan’s good luck charm, and according to one story came into the clan’s possession at this very spot.

As well as winning Pub of the Year for our area for the last 10 years from CAMRA, we are also a Whisky Embassy carrying over 130 single malt whiskies and we invite you to visit our wood-panelled bar to tarry over a dram of Scotland’s finest… to chat about the spectacular scenery viewed that day, or just to sit quietly by the smouldering peat fire.
