We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shieldaig. A former Victorian hunting lodge, the Shieldaig is a fine building in a wonderful setting right on the waters of Loch Gairloch. The place has a traditional feel, both in its decoration and in its service, which was no bad thing.

Having stayed here previously in the summer we were pleasantly surprised that when we decided to take a last minute Hogmanay break that there was availability. Initially we had some reservations about spending our New Year’s Eve with a group of 6 other couples who we didn’t know

We stayed two nights in the suite. We paid £299 for two nights B&B on a deal but the normal full price was I believe double that which is frankly ridiculous for what is on offer. Room/Accommodation Positives: Very traditional spacious bedroom with freestanding bath in the

Dear marinejewel, We thank you for taking the time to provide your in-depth valued feedback and choosing to stay at Shieldaig Lodge. It is pleasing to hear that you enjoyed our stunning waterfront location and comfortable rooms. We are terribly sorry that certain aspects of your stay fell short of meeting expectations. In response to your comments about the room amenities and layout, we have not have any complaints about this in the past and sincerely apologise that this was your experience. We will be sure to pass on your remarks to our management team for further review. Thank you for your kind words about our outstanding quality of food, your lovely comment is appreciated by our talented kitchen brigade. It is a shame to learn that you were unimpressed by our extensive whisky and gin collection in the Liberator Bar (111 gins and 250 whiskies!). In regards your comments about the water bottle charge, we apologise if this charge was not conveyed clearly to you at the time. It is our hope that you will allow us another opportunity to demonstrate a true Shieldaig Lodge experience sometime soon. Warm regards, Ismet Antepli General Manager

I'm not sure if they provide extra beds for children but I think they could maybe accomodate 1 extra bed in the rooms, But give them a call and I am sure they will be more than happy to help and give you an accurate answer!

"Worth paying for superior room with water view. We were upgraded to a suite that had a clawfoot bathtub in the bedroom."
"Ask for a room at the front of the lodge offering Loch views."
"The top floor rooms are up a number of flights of stairs. If you are in one of these ask for help with the luggage."
"The more expensive rooms do seem a little overpriced. If you want a comfy bed with a very small bathroom then go for the cheaper rooms."
"Pay a bit more and request Loch facing room"
