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.

ACTIVITIES & CONSERVATION

Part of the estate is a fenced area of over a thousand acres of regenerating native woodland where we have laid out several walks. The estate is owned and managed by the Kinloch Woodlands SCIO. Over the last 25 years half a million trees have been planted including Caledonian pine, birch, rowan, alder and oak. As the woodland matures, birds and other wildlife are making it their home. There is a good chance of seeing birds of prey including white tailed and golden eagles, buzzards, merlins and peregrines. There are also recently introduced red squirrels nearby.


There is brown trout fishing on Loch Dughaill and on the hill lochans on the estate. For wet days, the house has a pool table and a well stocked library of travel books, with a separate building for table tennis and table football.
