My husband and I have just returned from 3 fabulous days in Sheildaig and a stay at the Tigh an Eilean Hotel. Yes, the decor could perhaps do with a refresh in places however this was part of the charm. A warm welcome, beautiful views from the doorstep and some amazing food made for a wonderful visit.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September. Our room was clean and comfortable, and our hostess was very helpful to us in several ways. We also liked being able to have dinner in the pub next door, where we could get a smaller meal. Shieldag is a delightful town in a scenic area.

The location of this hotel is stunning. It looks out onto coastal scenery with a back drop of hill, peaks and mountains. It is remote.There is a shop next door that sells essentials, and a bar/restaurant the other side that is open as an alternative to the in-hotel dining options. There is also a coffee shop about 100m away, but... More

As frequent and enthusiastic visitors to Tigh An Eilean over the past decade, we were saddened on our most recent visit (Sept 2014) by the hotel's apparent decline. The predominantly Polish staff were helpful and anxious to please (albeit seemingly overworked) in the absence of the owners and the hotel's once-superlative cuisine was distinctly ho-hum. The rooms have always been... More

Lovely friendly hotel. Great food in the hotel restaurant and in the pub next door. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. So much better than many of the Highland hotels which attempt to get away with the minimum and just rely on the scenery to keep customers happy.

Extremely friendly and attentive service. Our room was a good size, with a lovely en suite, and the best views of the bay. Our evening meal in the quiet restaurant was delicious, and breakfast could not be bettered. Just loved the scrambled egg and smoked salmon, and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.

This was our third stay in 10 years and we love the location. It is friendly and the food is good. But we no longer feel it is good value for money - it is a hotel "resting on it's laurels" and we shall think twice about future visits.

Maybe we went here at the wrong time, as the restaurant was closed. The bar staff did not seem interested in serving and we were not the only ones in the bar to encounter their bad service. Very unattractive and drab looking bar. When we asked for a pint of the one real ale on display, we were told abruptly... More

First visit to the restaurant under present owners. Great variety and range of fresh food. Friendly, polite, efficient staff. Food prepared fresh. Very picky husband thought his seafood pizza was fab, he loves thin crust and fish of all types, he watched the fresh dough been rolled out how fresh us that. Thank you we will not hesitate to come... More

We come here a few times a year to eat when touring. Always a lovely welcome from Iwona and staff and the locals. The food is excellent whether taken in the bar or upstairs in the restaurant. The seafood is super fresh and wonderful to taste, whilst the sweets will tempt you wickedly... Worth the trip through some of Scotland's... More
