Waternish is made up of a number of small crofting townships, mainly on its western side, and the whole area is full of interesting features, historical locations and enjoyable coastal and forestry walks as well as a number of craft outlets. Stein, which hugs the shores of Loch Dunvegan on the western side of the Waternish Peninsula, is home to the Stein Inn, the oldest Inn on Skye, a small craft outlet and seafood restaurant and is a popular location for tourists throughout the year. Primary education is available locally at Knockbreck Primary School and Secondary education at Portree High School with public transport provided free of charge.
The nearest main centre of population is the village of Dunvegan, around 10 miles away, which has a large modern community hall, modern medical centre and a good variety of shops and hotels. There is also the world famous Dunvegan Castle, home of the Clan MacLeod.
The community is served by a mobile bank, library service and fish monger. Portree, the capital of the island, is 25 miles South East and has all the facilities you would expect in a small town.
