Drinking at the Stein

The very heart of the Stein Inn...

The wood-panelled bar is a place for both visitors and locals 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.

A fine selection of whisky, wine, liqueurs, soft drinks and cask ales, including the Stein Inn's very own "Reeling Deck" (brewed specially by the award-winning Isle of Skye Brewery), are available. The Stein Inn is accedited by Cask Marque, as well as being listed in both the Good Beer Guide and the Good Pub Guide.

The Inn has been recognised as a 'Whisky Embassy' by the 'The Scotch Whisky Tourism Initiative'. This award has been made to us by 'ScotlandWhisky' in recognition of our range and knowledge of whisky. 'ScotlandWhisky' is the national organisation dedicated to the promotion of Scotland and it's whisky. We have over 125 single malts to choose from!

From 26th March 2006 in line with legislation the Stein Inn is non-smoking throughout the whole building. A small outside smoking area is provided at the rear of the building accessed through the pool room.

Just one of the many appeals of the Stein Inn are the stunning views. On a fine day, locals and visitors alike tear themselves away from the intimacy of the bar to sit by the lochside and marvel at the spectacle of the Outer Hebridean islands gently shimmering in the sunshine.

An evening at the Stein Inn would be incomplete without drinking in one of the stunning sunsets for which the area is renowned.

Light lunches, bar snacks and home-cooked suppers are all available, wherever possible using the finest local produce.

The bar's usual opening hours are:

  • Summer:- Mon - Thu 11:00 - 24:00; Fri 11:00 - 01:00
    Sat 11:00 - 00:30; Sun 11:30 - 23:00
  • Winter:- Mon - Thu 12pm - 11pm; Fri 12pm - 12am
    Sat 12pm - 12am; Sun 12:30pm - 11pm
