Waternish, Isle of Skye

The Waternish peninsula, one of the three most prominent in the north of Skye, juts into the Little Minch, with Loch Dunvegan on the west and Loch Snizort on the east.

Most of the houses pictured are strung out along the single track road which overlooks Loch Bay, an inlet of Loch Dunvegan. Left of centre is the community of Stein. Stein began life as a British Fisheries planned village but it failed to develop as expected. Today it is a quiet and picturesque holiday destination for those seeking peace and quiet.
