The Original Hunting Lodge in the West Highlands

Whilst Shieldaig is very much a physical place, we'd say it was more of a feeling. An experience that we believe very few words can describe. It’s a ‘feel it to believe it’ kind of place. It can be described as a very special feeling; somewhere to come back to when you’re ready for some well-deserved R&R. A one of a kind hub of beauty, luxury and tranquillity. 

What makes us most original is our beautiful location here on the waterside. Perched perfectly next to a sparkly bay, where boats come and go and seals frolic, Shieldaig is unique in so many ways. Bursting with character and charm, our lochside retreat has been known to capture hearts, offering a place to call home for many.

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience with the Shieldaig Lodge. From our initial contact when booking (with Lisa) to the welcome we received when we got there from Dee we had a fantastic experience... In summary, what a place! We didn't want to come home and will certainly be back...loved it!
Can’t fault this place, perfect idyllic location, lovely room, staff very friendly and helpful and above all else the food was excellent, top quality all round. We stayed in 5 different hotels on our two week trip around Scotland, all 4 or 5 star, this one tops the lot.  
Hidden gem - a lovely hotel restored to its former glory maintaining so many original features. Enjoyed a day/nights stay whilst touring Scotland and we pleased to have found it. Comfortable and stylish rooms coupled with decent food.
A wonderful and friendly hotel with outstanding atmosphere and character. Food and location brilliant and the whisky bar a real highlight.
