KINLOCH
on Loch Torridon

(text from the owners, Richard & Claire)

WHERE WE ARE


Ours is a spectacular location on the sea-shore at the mouth of the Shieldaig river about half a mile from Shieldaig.

We look north over Loch Torridon to the village of Shieldaig and Shieldaig Island and, to the east, the wooded slopes of Ben Shieldaig form a dramatic backdrop to the house and two cottages. The giants of Torridon - Beinn Alligin, Liathach and Beinn Eighe (all over 3000 ft.) are only a few minutes drive away.

For those driving using a sat-nav and our postcode, you are given 3 possible locations; the one you want is Kinloch House.

We offer you the independence of your own cottage without the chore of having to do the cooking, as meals are served in our house next door. Accommodation is suitable for up to 10 people and we are open throughout the year.
Facilities are ideal for those with an interest in wildlife and outdoor activities and for families with children. Well-behaved dogs are welcome and there are plenty of safe areas for them to run around.

FACILITIES


The cottages are traditionally built, warm and comfortable with hot water provided by solar power .

The larger cottage is ideal for larger families and groups and is about 50m. from the main house. It is divided into two units with a communal front door. Downstairs are two twin-bedded rooms a bathroom and a separate toilet. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and a small kitchen area for guests who prefer to do their own evening meals. There is a washing machine, a drying cupboard and lots of storage space. Upstairs there is a double-bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There is a room opposite which can sometimes be used as a sitting room.

 

The smaller cottage, which is immediately adjacent to the main house, has proved popular with smaller families and couples. The bedroom has twin beds. There is a play/ sleeping area for children in the attic which is accessed by a ship's ladder. The cottage has a sitting room with a convertible sofa/ double bed and wood burning stove. It has a shower room, drying cupboard and washing machine. There are tea/ coffee making facilities, two electric hobs and a fridge in the sitting room.

ACTIVITIES

We have canoes and a rowing boat which guests can take along the seashore to see seals, otters and a wide variety of seabirds. There is a rowing boat available for brown trout fishing on Loch Doughaill and also fishing on the hill lochans on the estate. On part of the estate there is a fenced area of over a thousand acres of regenerating native woodland where we have recently laid out several walks; there is a good chance of seeing birds of prey including white-tailed and golden eagles, buzzards, merlins and peregrines. The house has a pool table, a well stocked library of travel books and lots of board games for wet days and there is a separate building for table-tennis and table football. If you are interested in a guided walk, scramble or climb in the Torridon hills there are excellent opportunities to go with Jim Sutherland, who lives in Shieldaig. His website is here
