Shieldaig is a picturesque village only 90 minutes’ drive from Inverness, single track the last 30 minutes. For many this is the ‘real’ Highlands, enjoying a spectacular location, nestled amongst the Munro's right on a West Coast sea loch. We are surrounded by nature – sea-eagles on Shieldaig Island, red deer in Torridon glen, pine marten wander by, otters in our sea loch, a wealth of marine life - seals, dolphins, whales, divers and puffins.
A perfect base (with shop & pub) for exploring the remote Applecross peninsular, Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve, Torridon, Eilean Donan Castle, Plockton, Inverewe Gardens, Glen Elg and Wester Ross. We have lots of information, including daily weather forecasts, to help you get the most out of your time here - great walks, activities and tours close by.
