Art, Crafts and Activities

Art Studios and Potteries

Stein has a craft and art gallery, Dandelion Designs. Edinbane is a 10 minute drive away.  In Portree, Aros is a centre for film and performing arts, art exhibitions, eagle-cams and a café.

Sheepskins and Wool

We have a nearby sheepskin tannery, Skyeskyns  and a hand-dyed yarn and knitware studio, Shilasdair.

Wildlife & Outdoor Activities

There are many beach, cliff, forest and hill walks around The Old Byre.  One guest counted 60 bird species around or near the house in 4 days (including both Golden and White Tailed Eagles) and also saw two species of whale, seals, dolphins and basking sharks.

Organised activities on the island include divingcanoeing, cycle hire and horse riding.


For garden lovers, the gardens at Attadale on the mainland are worth a detour, and whist there, call in at the Carron Restaurant and its adjacent pottery.
