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.
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.
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
