This is probably the freindliest and most relaxed hotel we've ever stayed in. Honesty bar, cosy lounge, and nothing-is-too-much-trouble staff. You can watch white-tailed eagles from the breakfast table! Other breakfast highlights include the tattie (Scots for tater) scones and the excellent black pudding. Evening meals in the adjacent restaurant (also owned by the hotel) were generous and really tasty.... More

We spent a Saturday night at the Tigh an Eilean and were delighted. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly, the hotel pleasingly characterful and the beds so comfortable. Both the dinner (in the bar restaurant) and the breakfast were top notch and I thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone. We will be back! Thanks Cathryn.

My husband and I stayed here for a night as we made our way round the North Coast 500. The staff were very welcoming and the food was very good. The pub attached to the hotel was busy with locals who welcomed us to share a few drinks. I was slightly disappointed by the room as it didnt reflect the... More

Just back from a great trip to Shieldaig, Wester Ross. Didn't stay at this hotel, but enjoyed the banter in the pub on a couple of evenings, and really savoured a feast of fresh seafood! Definitely recommend this lovely corner of the world.

The hotel looks a little tired, but maybe this was because we visited at the end of the season. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast is superb. The Wifi is free, and so is the view over the sea which is amazing. The only negative aspects are the lack of a TV in the bedroom and also the... More

We had dinner here on our Coast 500 trip, my partner cycling and me in the campervan. The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating. We had drinks in the bar and then were shown upstairs to the restaurant which had splendid views over the Loch. The food was very good indeed, I had the local fish stew which was excellent... More

We know Shieldaig from previous visits but it was our first time in the hotel. We had a sea facing room from which we could see the fabulous sea bird life including a family of Sea Eagles!! The room was fine , however the bathroom left much to be desired- no shower only an over bath hand held one which... More

Arrived looking for sea eagles and then the weather took a distinct turn for the worse. Popped in for lunch, I had a haggis neeps and tatties stack, Stevie had smoked salmon and fresh bread platter- great! Interesting bar, locals and visitors- felt welcoming. Would go back and we did eventually see sea eagles but coming back on the Torridon... More

Was disappointed by this location - condition has not been maintained. Our bathroom had black mold and mildew creeping through the bubbling wall paper border - ick!
