About Us

Roger and Norah-Lynne

Roger and Norah-Lynne ShannWe are Roger and Norah-Lynne Shann.  We  moved to the beautiful Isle of Skye in October 2014, but we have been regular visitors to the Island for several years, and always to the area around Waternish in the north west.

We have stayed in several different places on the peninsula but close to the village of Stein has become our favourite area and for some time we have been looking for the right property to fulfil our dream of living here.

The property that came available, and which we subsequently bought, suited our plans very well.  We set about converting a large 5 bedroomed bungalow into a home for ourselves and a completely self contained holiday let. We have a very clear idea as to what sort of holiday home we wanted to create and we are using the best we can wherever possible.

You can see our plans unfold on our blog, which we will be starting very soon.  We will also be updating the blog with news of the Island, particularly of Waternish and anything else that we think might interest you.

Roger was born in Sale, Cheshire (Greater Manchester since 1974) and spent 5 years in Newcastle upon Tyne as a student.  On graduating he went to work in Cumbria in 1978 and through various jobs he ended up in Cockermouth where he met Norah-Lynne in 1999.

His hobbies include cycling, fell walking, photography, travel and food and drink. He has an interest too in wildlife and is a member of the RSPB.

Roger took early retirement in 2014 to bring forward the move to Skye.

Norah-Lynne’s interests include travel, walking, photography, food and drink, and recently she completed a course in upholstery and plans to follow this up in the New Year.

Roger and Norah-Lynne married in 2002 and between them have children  that are all grown up and scattered around the UK and abroad.
