MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This pretty little crofter’s cottage sits in an idyllic spot on the Waternish Peninsula and offers commanding views across the countryside to the mountains. It’s a pleasingly simple place, with a wood-burning stove, Harris Tweed covered chairs and a snug feel. Chef-owner Michael Smith worked in several classical restaurants before taking it over in 2016 with his wife, Laurence, who looks after the service. Skilfully prepared, intensely flavoured Scottish dishes come with French overtones and cooking is well-judged, with minimal seasoning bringing out only the most natural of flavours. Lunch sees a fairly classical menu while dinner is more complex; go for the Loch Bay Seafood tasting menu. Stein started life as a fishing village and to this day, the cold, pure Scottish waters which surround it provide the UK’s best habitat for fish and shellfish.
