The Cottage is a traditional stone cottage set in the picturesque village of Shieldaig in the North-West Highlands of Scotland. It has recently been renovated and extended to a very high standard to provide a comfortable holiday home sleeping up to six. It has oil-fired central heating throughout with additional underfloor heating in the bathrooms and there is a multi-fuel stove in the sitting room. Telephone and wireless broadband internet connection are provided at no additional cost. The property is on the waterfront and boats can be launched from the nearby jetty. There is an enclosed front garden and extensive rear gardens. Surrounded by the Torridon Mountains this is the perfect position for those visitors who enjoy outdoor activities on sea or land. The photographic opportunities are extensive for those who have more leisurely interests. We are delighted that the Scottish Tourist Board has awarded us a 4 Star rating under their prestigious Quality Assurance Scheme. The large kitchen/dining room is fully equipped with electric hob and oven, microwave oven and dishwasher. There is a large American style fridge/freezer with ice maker and water dispenser. The utility room has excellent laundry facilities with a washing machine, tumble drier and pulley drier and is adjoined by a downstairs cloakroom with shower. The comfortable sitting room has satellite TV, video and DVD player. Double doors lead to a garden room with French doors to the patio and rear gardens where garden furniture is provided. There are three bedrooms, all with stunning views across Loch Shieldaig. The master suite has a super-king bed, satellite TV and ensuite shower room. There is a large bedroom with 3 full-size single beds and a small single bedroom. The spacious family bathroom has an original antique claw foot bath. All linen and towels are supplied. Bookings are taken from Sunday to Sunday throughout the year. Three and four day bookings may be considered from November until March. Please see our website for tariff and availability.


The Cottage is situated at the southern end of the village of Shieldaig - opposite the pier. It can be easily identified as the "Red Cottage". We are on the shores of Loch Shieldaig (a sea loch) and about 70 miles west of the vibrant city of Inverness which has good transport links to the rest of the UK. By car, we can be reached either by travelling via the A9 to Inverness or by taking the picturesque (but slower) west coast route via Fort William.
