Interaction with guests
I look forward to feedback from guests as I will not be present/available during their stay
Shieldaig is ar the heart of the spectacular landscape of Torridon to the north and Lochcarron and Kyle of Lochalsh to the south. There is a wealth of spectacular walks, from gentle coastal trails to more challenging climbs to munro summits. 'Torridon Sea Tours' provided boat trips from the village pier with opportunities to view sea eagles, cruise Loch Torridon or visit the Hebridean Island of Rona. Seals and occasionally dolphins visit the bay. If you are lucky you may also see the otters that have a holt near the village pier. The Applecross peninsula is within easy traveling distance as is Loch Maree and Gairloch.
There is a regular mini-bus service to the rail station at Strathcarron, 17 miles south of Shieldaig.
