Skye's oldest inn received recognition when it came joint second place in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards.

Based in Waternish, The Stein Inn is run by Angus and Teresa McGhie and has rooms dating from 1790.  Located on the edge of Loch Bay, the Inn boasts tranquil views, an impressive collection of over 130 whiskies and a warm welcome!

The pub received exactly the same number of votes as The Earle Arms in Norfolk.  However, both pubs lost out to Crosskeys Inn in County Antrim, Ireland.  The oldest thatched pub in Ireland is a stone-built cottage built in the 1650's.
