Ignore pre June 2015 reviews. This place has been gutted and completely/tastefully renovated at vast expense. Setting idyllic sitting within its own bay. Old country mansion/shooting lodge with soothing tweeds, carpets and colours. Beds and sheets top quality. Maybe a wee bit too much furniture in the magnificent library. All of the punlic rooms stunnning including the snooker room. Mearns... More

Beautifully refurbished, great location. Excellent food and unbelievably friendly service. We were made feel very comfortable. Great bar, library common room, and exceptional views from the restaurant. A very nice, albeit on a small size, room. The real problem was the shower. The noise it made was unbearable, and the room was so small that in order to dry myself... More

Apart from saying that the lodge is in a superb setting (with its own bay right outside) with very clean rooms, a beautifully decorated interior, I'd like to emphasise how friendly the staff were. We booked this place very last minute (at around 9 pm) after failing for several hours to find any suitable accommodation on the Isle of Skye... More

I've passed this hotel so often in the past, many years ago on the way to Badachro for family holidays, and always wanted to stay, so took the opportunity on a recent visit to the area. I wasn't disappointed - well appointed room with all facilities and the views are to die for. The food was very good and the... More

originally from the area I was delighted to see this beautiful lodge restored to its former glory... too long has it been neglected - brought back some lovely memories of happy times spent at Shieldaig lodge. New proprietors have restored this stunning lodge with obvious care and attention - cannot speak about the rooms as we did not stay but... More

Anything written before this is relates to the lodge before it was refurbed and placed under new management. I say that as the new owners have nailed it. Fantastic decor, food, service all set in a stunning location. As soon as you walk through the door you are made to feel at home with nothing being too much trouble for... More

Shieldag Lodge is a wonderful little hotel. The interior is old nautical style which makes sense because of the location. You get well taken care of and there's a huge amount of different whiskys, even from closed distilleries. I had dinner too that was as flawless as the rest.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights as we felt it would be a good base for kayaking, fishing, walking etc which it most certainly was. The hotel was very homely and full of character. Our room over looked the loch which was breath taking. What impressed us most of all was the friendly, cheerful, and... More

We had decided to visit friends nearby and this was the hotel we were booked. From the moment you arrive you are greeted by gracious front of house staff that make you feel so welcome. The hotel has just been renovated and it has been done with immaculate taste. The attention to detail, the colors, the furniture all add to... More
