Stayed here many times and also at Bluebell Cottage next door and always eat here. Jill is a fantastic cook and host and always offers a choice of local meat and fish in the restaurant. On my last visit I had the fillet steak twice as it was so good! The rooms are comfortable and the location is to die... More

The location of this hotel/restaurant is brilliant. You can see Rhum in the distance. Our room was excellent, very clean and comfortable. The dinner and breakfast were both excellent and service throughout was friendly and accommodating. We were on our way to Arisaig for a wedding and our decision to stop here (and also visit nearby Castle Tioram) was an... More

A great birthday treat, 2 nights in the newly renovated cottage and dinner in the restaurant. 5th time we have eaten at the Ardshealach and it never fails to delight, the melon with smoked vension and raspberry coulis was memorable and not something I would have thought of putting on a plate! Already looking forward to the next time!!

Ardshealach Lodge was recommended by the owners of Mingarry Park while they were taking a break from evening meals. Wow - what a find! The food was superb and complimented with a fine atmosphere. With canapés and drink prior to the main event in the tastefully decorated lounge, I looked forward to the delights this place had to offer. I... More

Ardshealach lodge offers an intimate dining experience in a lovely lochside setting. From the pre-dinner drinks in the elegant conservatory through the carefully resourced and lovingly prepared local produce nothing was too much trouble for the charming staff. We will definitely return when next in the area.....makes the miles of single track driving worthwhile!!.

My wife and I had dinner here one night in September. My meal was excellent, the seafood risotto with stuffed sole was memorable: but my wife was not happy with her fillet of beef. She said the beef quality was OK, but the sauce had little flavor. And we were not happy being kept waiting in their "conservatory" for at... More

Listed as a restaurant the house also has a few rooms for B&B or full board. A brilliant find for our 3 night stay. The house is in a marvellous location with extensive grounds and a footpath down to Loch Shiel. The refurbished (rebuilt?) large "conservatory" building is a lovely place to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and nibbles and the food... More

Dining here was like a step back in time but a very pleasant one. Jill's cooking is renouned and the only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is that I wasn't overly impressed with what I ate but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that I chose the wrong things for me. I decided on chocolate roulade... More
