Shieldaig by Torridon is a great place to base yourself there are Beinn Eighe, Liathach, Alligin & Beinn Damph. We have maps, books, walking information, provide a daily weather forecast and offer suggestions to help you get the most out of your time here. Sightseeing could include a trip to the Perfume studio, Inverewe & Attadale Gardens, Lochcarron weavers, Carron Pottery, Eilean Donan Castle, Strome castle ruins. The Isle of Skye is not so far away with Tallisker distillery, the ancient Brochs near Glen Elg where you can still 'go over the sea to Skye'. A trip over the Bealach na Ba is a must to explore Applecross.
We try to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere whilst keeping an unobtrusive presence. It is our aim to help you get the most out of your time spent here. The Torridon area is a great place to base yourself & spend time walking, nature & bird watching. There is so much to see & do within 50 mile radius, most people just have to come back.
'I feel this village is the most beautiful and special in the whole of Scotland - and I have travelled extensively all over Scotland.' Dean
