The ground floor is as expected in a luxury hotel with the most wonderful views. However, the room didn’t follow with the same quality . The antique wardrobes suited the room , but the tissue paper wedged to allow the doors to close was shoddy . One door handle came off in my hand . The food in the restaurant was superb and cannot fault the whiskey but if as much attention to the bedrooms were shown as in the public areas then this would have given a better experience

We cannot thank everyone at Shieldaig Lodge enough for making our wedding so perfect. After having to delay by a year due to Covid , Lisa and the team provided such warm hospitality and ensured that the day ran smoothly organising everything from the food, to the flowers and even arranging a piper to play for us! We chose the elopement package and came up to stay with 10 guests, marrying on the lawn overlooking the loch with perfect weather. All the guests were very impressed with the rooms (the sunsets over the loch are spectacular) and are still raving about the food. We also had falconry on the lawn the night before which was great fun for all ages and we would highly recommend. Truly a stay that we will never forget.

A hefty dose of luxury in a beautiful tranquil secluded setting! We had a room with a wonderful view of the Loch (room 6) and it was comfortable, spacious, and full traditional charm. There's lots to do in and around the hotel. The food is of the highest standard, with careful attention being paid to every detail. Most delicious meal on the whole NC500! Although more pricey than other local eatery options, it has to be said that in view of the tremendous quality, the Shieldaig lodge provides fabulous value. Cant wait to go back.
