Shieldaig Lodge is an unspoiled Victorian sporting lodge. A few people have commented that the place could do with "a good update." That would destroy the overstuffed, comfortable ambience. The en suite bathrooms are fully updated, and that's enough. Many of the guests were repeat visitors, some for years and years. Hats off to Gino and Wendy for not giving... More

Gino and Wendy create a very special ambience in this wonderful old lodge. The food is divine and the location unbeatable literally a stone's throw from the sea loch and surrounded my mature woodland. I have visited here many times now and it has consistantly been a great hotel!

When you open the window of your room you can see a brethless view and you can imagine to live...in A little piece... More

We travelled there as a family and very much enjoyed it. This is the farthest you can get from a national chain hotel: the hotel itself has lots of character, the owner is very engaging and attentive, the food is very good, and the setting is very beautiful. In fact, the entire area is very beautiful and well worth exploring.... More

This is one of these cases when a hotel goes from quirky, old-style charm to still charming but in need of an update. The owner is a friendly, Italian gentleman that we only met when we were leaving. That was the problem for us. That day there was not enough staff. We waited for over half an hour (with other... More

We stayed only one night at the Shieldaig but found it to be a wonderful place that brought us back to an earlier time. We occupied Room 7, a superior double, which gave us a lovely view of the water and a beautiful bathroom and our adult son was in a single on a different floor. We found the staff... More

Very friendly staff made us feel at home. Absolutely no problem having a dog with you... most did. Even a special exercise area. Very good food, cosy bar area with reasonable prices and a good range of whiskies. Very clean and spacious family room. Wonderful lochside views. Great holiday...... midges heaven!

.....because part of it was great, part awful. A very friendly welcome from Mr Host. We were shown to our very small double room and warned that sometimes it takes a while for the shower to warm up. He was not joking! It took nearly 15 minutes for any hot water to appear. Bedding and towels etc. were clean but... More

After focussing on the positive reviews of this hotel, I booked a two night stay as part of our trip to the Highlands. I was happy enough with the room. It had a great view and was clean, but a little dated and I felt it could have retained it's 'old world' feel but could have been done a little... More

My wife and I have recently arrived home from a wonderful 5 night break at Shieldaig Lodge between 29th June and 4th July. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Gino & Wendy and it was just lovely to return again to what has become a fantastic find that we look forward to coming back to at least once each... More
