During a brief visit to Shielding we stayed for a night in Tigh an Eilean. The location is superb, the dining experience excellent and the staff couldn't have been nicer - friendly and enthusiastic. However, the quality of the accommodation is poor - threadbare carpets, grubby wallpapers, cracked bathroom tiling and old beds. Completely at odds with the pricing. There... More

The hotel is situated next to Loch Gairloch in another beautiful part of west coast Scotland. The hotel looks nice from the outside. The single bed room I had at the back didn't have a view of such and the decor seemed a bit oldy worldy to me and a bit dullish because of the lack of outdoor light coming... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely breakfast with a magnificent view of the loch. Bed was nice and cosy in a warm room, will definitely recommend this hotel Although the Scottish Highlands are normally quite cold do make sure to take warm clothes with when going to the Highlands.

We have just had a brilliant meal of fish chowder and fresh scallops. Never tasted seafood as good and so generously presented. Fiona our waitress is a real diamond and looked after us, helping us choose wisely. She really understood the food she was serving.

First thing to say is that the service at the hotel is excellent. The owner was very friendly and willing to please. We had as much tea as we could drink and I enjoyed the honesty bar (I was very honest). Breakfast was very nice as well. The decor of the hotel is somewhat anachronistic and there is a pleasing...

Room dirty, bed made up in clumsy fashion, no TV or phone in the room, price of Bed and Breakfast per person absolutely outrageous. Very limited number of staff, each doing a whole range of different jobs and working ridiculously long hours. No sign of anyone in overall managerial charge.

What a brilliant place - delectable food in a fantastic location, with a warm welcome. In the restaurant you can ask for excellent real ale from their pub next door (as an option - there's also a wine list). You can gaze out at the sea and the island (where the sea eagles nest) from your room, the dining room,... More

We recently ate in the restaurant, and were the only two diners that night. However, the level of service and the food were superb. It was a credit to the chef that he created our dishes clearly with a dedication that is a credit to him and the Hotel. We had a wonderful meal, and would certainly recommend. Thank you... More

With lovely views across Loch Shieldaig and in the heart of some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery and roads this hotel offers warm hospitality and a wide range of facilities. I lost a button of an item of clothing and put it on the table in my spacious and well appointed room in order not to lose it. After the... More

The atmosphere... More
