Shiskine is an incredible place. The house and apartment are beautiful: comfortable and well-finished with lovely furniture and light, airy decor. It has such a great atmosphere and is a fantastic place to spend time, whether socialising or enjoying the peace and tranquility.
The scenery and views from Shiskine are unrivalled. The simply breathtaking outlook to Skye and the Western Isles is stunning in all weathers.
Anyone lucky enough to stay in Shiskine will know that it is absolutely unforgettable and an incredibly hard place to leave. We will be back many times, I am certain.
Driving past sheep down a narrow picturesque single lane road is a perfect introduction to Shiskine. The house and the views are amazing.
Mark has brilliantly converted the whole top floor of the property into incredibly cosy and practical accommodation. The two bedrooms are of a good size with modern ensuites. The kitchen area is well stocked and the whole place feels spacious.
the views out of the windows (normal and velux) are the best! Looking over to Skye during the day and up at the stars at night.
You could spend days on end here simply doing nothing, just gazing at the wonderful view watching it change. And a walk on the beach can bring views of seals, whales etc.
Mark is the perfect host; kind, thoughtful and friendly.
Very very much recommended.
Shiskine is a great base to visit and explore the highlands. My boys (12 &15) and I travelled by train to Inverness from Fife, 3 hours. At Inverness we hired a car and it was an hours drive to beautiful Gairloch. Shiskine was a lovely spacious apartment to stay in with beautiful views of the sea. I loved the comfy beds and enjoyed relaxing with my boys. We also had wifi and board games so that boys could play playstation and be entertained. We chilled out and went for walks along the sandy beaches on our doorstep. We were lucky enough to see an otter on the beach and a seal pup. It is a photographers dream for wildlife and stunning scenery. From Shiskine we could the islands of Skye, Harris and Lewis. Mark the owner was always helpful and there if we needed him. We are coming back to in the Summer to use Shiskine as a base to visit Skye and explore the surroundings. A great family getaway if you love the outdoors and photography.
Shiskine really is a gorgeous place. The ultimate place to sit back and chill, with it's constantly changing skyscapes and views across the sea to Skye and the Hebrides. Located close to the lovely town of Gairloch and wonderful scenery of Loch Maree and Torridon.
The house is top spec with great quality furniture and bedding. The house has everything you will need to make you holiday easy. A real home away from home. Shiskine is a premier property with plenty of space and style. A very clean, stylish and fresh environment in which to enjoy a break.
The owner Mark is very helpful and a great host and has great local knowledge, of local places to visit, have lunch etc.
Shiskine is a place that once you have visited you will want to return again and again.
