Eilean Isay has great charm and we were very comfortable. The facilities were very good and we had a very enjoyable time staying. The view over the loch is really superb and I managed to capture this in a pencil sketch.

About the neighbourhood
Waternish is the central of the the most prominent peninsulas to project north west into the Minch. It is an extremely pretty area and very green. There are a series of scattered setlements here including Bay, Lusta, Stein, Hallin, Halistra and Trumpan. There are several places worth a visit whether it be historical or just local attractions, These include 'Fairy Bridge' dating from the early 1800's and apparently named because it was believed to be the haunt of fairies and where the then Chief MacLeod was given the famous 'Fairy Flag' by his fairy wife (before she left him returning to her own people) to be waved only three times if the MacLeod Clan were in danger. The flag has been waved on two occasions and is now kept in Dunvegan Castle.
