This is a lovely wee cottage, perfectly situated with fantastic views. Hugh, in my opinion the photos that you have posted do not do the cottage full justice. Its such a beautiful location and the cottage is delightful, warm, cosy, clean and very well set up. We really appreciated the stove and enjoyed having cold, wet windy walks (the weather was terrible) and coming back to a real fire and a dram. We appreciated the bottle of wine that you left for us.
Thank you for the space and the trust in sharing it with us.
Thanks Charles, glad you enjoyed your stay despite the weather. As you suggest I must have another go at the photographs.
We had a wonderful stay at Hughs home. The house easily hosted four people and was very comfortable and cosy. Hughs home had a very homely and relaxed feel to it and the view from the living area window was amazing, we sat for long periods just looking out the window and sea eagle and seal spotting.
We are no strangers to the area so knew most of the surroundings. We have usually only camped the campsite which is only really ok for a couple of nights so decided to book a cottage so we could stay for longer and enjoy it better.
We did a Torridon sea tour, which is just amazing and so brilliantly hosted. The views of the hills are spectacular but wrap up warm.
I would also recommend taking a drive to Diabaig, the road is something else and the views on the way are breathtaking.
I would also encourage anyone to go to the Shieldaig bar and coastal kitchen for food/ drinks. The locals are very welcoming and inclusive in their banter. On a Friday night there is sometimes live music and the couple of times I've been its been one of the most entertaining nights ever.
I just love this part of Scotland and usually end up over there at least twice a year.
I will most definitely be back to Shieldaig and hopefully will stay at Hughs house regularly.
Thank you very much

Thanks Simon, glad you enjoyed your stay.
Hugh, thanks so much for a fabulous week long stay in Shieldaig your place in Shieldaig. It was so much more than you described and I would highly recommend it to others.
After being on the road for a couple of months I felt immediately at home, as it is incredibly comfortable and well appointed with beautiful artwork. Your welcome pack of supplies was much appreciated as were the fresh flowers. The comments on the local activities and eateries were also well very useful. The local community were very welcoming and the surrounding village markets fantastic.
The natural beauty of the area is just stunning and was well explored on my bicycle, on foot and in the car. The weather was sensational so it was a very busy time to make the most of being there, including a lovely evening cruise around Loch Torridon. It is truly a rugged, remote, spectacular part of the world.
Your communications were clear and timely and any questions answered promptly. The directions to the house were also very easy to understand.
I loved my stay in your place and I look forward to coming back again.
Hugh's cottage is much nicer in real life than the photos depict. It is incredibly welcoming immediately upon walking in the door. It's difficult to say much more as it really did feel perfect in every way. Suffice to say we felt at home immediately and throughout our 10 day say. Everything you can think of is provided right down to a good coffee grinder. Shieldaig is a wonderful village, we experienced kindness and warmth from all the locals we met and had a few fun evenings in the local pub in this way.
From start to finish dealing with Hugh was effortless and from our experience staying in his I cottage can only describe Hugh as a very thoughtful host who has put considerable effort into ensuring that guests have a great experience.
Not to be missed and will return next year.

Glorious! Hugh was very informative and friendly from the get go,insisting that we make ourselves at home. The cottage is beautiful, immaculate and had everything you could need and we sincerely felt at home immediately. This was all enhanced by the incredible surroundings and views ... even from the front room!! Shieldaig is a perfect spot to relax but was a very useful base for us to explore the surrounding areas such as applecroas and redpoint. Enountered friendly locals at every turn. We were rained in for the first 2 days due to the tail end of hurricane Bertha hitting the coast but it gave us a great excuse to light the fire and enjoy Hugh's book collection and unwind in the space itself. Better than anticipated, a genuinely great experience. Scotland we love you.... Thanks for the opportunity Hugh!
It is a great cottage. We came in and loved it right away. The view is really spectacular and we loved the pub in the neighborhood. To get to Shieldaig is an adventure as there are mostly single-lane roads and it takes its time. The communication was easy and very good. Hugh left a suggestion where to go and where to eat. Unfortunately we arrived late, had plans for the next day and had no time to test the restaurants and pubs. We might come back and spend more time.
We had a great time in Shieldaig. The cottage is fantastic, very comfortable and with espectacular views to the loch. Really good choice¡¡
Nutria was an excellent and respectful guest who left the house clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
