The very heart of 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 warm of the glass fronted stove.
A fine selection of whisky, wine, liqueurs, soft drinks and cask ales, from the award winning breweries of the Highlands, are available.
The Stein Inn is accredited by Cask Marque as having excellently kept real ales, as well as being listed in both the Good Beer Guide and the Good Pub Guide. Every year since 2005 the Inn has been voted the Camra Pub of the Year for North Skye and the Hebrides. In 2015 we were delighted to be voted Camra Pub of the Year for Highlands and the Western Isles. From the outset we wanted to promote the real ales of Scotland and so on hand pumps we only serve Scottish real ales. We are proud to be supplied by award winning breweries and at any time we will have two or three ales available from Isle of Skye Brewery, Orkney Brewery, Cairngorm Brewery, Caledonian Brewery, Swannay Brewery or Loch Ness Brewery.
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 130 single malts to choose from!
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 and home-cooked evening meals are all available, wherever possible using the finest local produce.
