We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our road trip round the Highlands. So glad we chose here for the only 2 night stop we planned. We had room 6 - large, peaceful, views to die for and the comfiest bed I think I've ever slept in. The peace and tranquility of the setting permeates the building - you cannot help but relax here. Lovely grounds with a falconry in the back garden! The food (breakfast and dinner) was absolutely outstanding and the chef was very accommodating of my fussy eater husband. Staff were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Hope to be able to return here soon.

We spent a night at this beautiful lodge that is nestled in a beautiful location with a gorgeous water-front view. The Hotel Manager was the most personable and welcoming of anyone we met on our 5-week trip through Ireland and Scotland. He recommended a fine whisky to sip in their cozy library with very comfortable chairs during a very rainy afternoon. Later we had a fine dinner in the restaurant. That afternoon and again the next morning a young man appeared in the hotel lobby with a falcon and later a snowy owl. He was more than happy to be photographed. The hotel has an area behind the hotel where they raise falcons and owls. The drive to the hotel along A832 was a beautiful one. We were sorry we had only one night at this hotel. It is a lovely place and we highly recommend it.

We loved our stay at Shieldaig Lodge. It's a beautiful old hunting lodge with some wonderful old features and charm, but with all the amenities of a modern hotel - except maybe decent wifi and TV, but who goes to the Highlands for that? It is a slightly pricier option, but worth it, in my view.

The service was exceptional from the time we arrived until we left. We felt very well taken care of and everyone was friendly and more than helpful. The lodge isn't that large, so the same handful of staff who checked us in were later helping in the dining room, then also in the bar after dinner, and again at breakfast.

There are a lot of rooms on the ground floor for guests to use, including a great bar with a huge, impressive whisky selection and a games room with a snooker table. The rooms at the front of the lodge have spectacular views out over the loch, so it was nice to sit and enjoy the scenery with a drink (and without the midges!).

We were a larger group so had three rooms in the hotel. My room was very comfortable, however, the bathroom was quite small. You had to shimmy around the sink to get to the toilet and two people couldn't be in there at the same time. A minor gripe, but if you like space in your bathroom, check what's on offer before you book.

We enjoyed the 3-course dinner in the dining room and, although it is relatively expensive, it's not that far out of line the with other places we stayed in the Highlands. There's a lot of seafood on the menu so it's never going to cost peanuts. I agree with other reviewers that some a la carte options would be nice to have, especially if you're staying several days, but this didn't bother us. We weren't able to try the cooked breakfast in the morning, as we had an early boat trip to get to, but the staff made sure we were able to get continental breakfast before leaving.

I wish we'd stayed another night or two to take full advantage of the activities on offer on the huge estate. There's a falconry, as well as walking trails, options for deer stalking and fishing, and more.

We stayed overnight here and it’s been the best hotel in over 3 weeks of touring around the UK, Ireland and Scotland. The property sits right on the waters edge, so seal and otter watching over breakfast is a nice way to start your day. Our room was on the second floor, and was very nice. The bed was huge and very comfortable. All the bed linen, and towels are large, and of excellent quality. Bath robes and slippers are provided, I love these in a room. The Lodge is tastefully decorated, and has a great feeling about it. Both dinner and breakfast were first rate, and the staff went out their way too make us feel welcome. I would love to have stayed longer, and would recommend people consider this Lodge, it was great. There is a Falconry attached to the Lodge, the also were excellent, providing up close and personal interaction with birds of prey.

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. Our suite was beautifully appointed with stunning views across the loch.   The staff are friendly and welcoming and the whole atmosphere is very relaxed. The food too was exceptional. We had the tasting menu and couldn't fault it. Chef Jerome is a talented guy! The bar is very well stocked with Scottish gins and malts too and the log fires in the lounges make sure Shieldaig Lodge ticks every box for a relaxed and cosy trip to the Highlands. Would highly recommend.

What could you dream of better than a manor house on the sea with luxurious rooms ? The hotel is composed of lounges, billard room, fire place and with a bar which proposed more than 250 sort of whisky. The restaurant is a gastronomic one with products of the sea and others. The hotel has created a falconery with owls and ravens.

Even before you walk into this hotel you can see that the guests' needs are of paramount importance! Wellington boots are on a rack outside and available for the use of guests as are umbrellas waiting by the door.Welcome, rooms, service, food and ambiance are second to none (and the choice of Gins is superb!) We can't wait to return.

The lodge is beautiful, recently renovated and the perfect blend of old charm and modern convenience and luxury!

My husband and I stayed as a treat = for my Birthday this fall and had an AMAZING time... we did not want to leave, and seriously considered canceling our reservation at the next spot of our trip to stay longer. We took advantage of the yummy restaurant and bar, took a short drive to the Queen's beach, and went falconing! Wow, it has been a few months since our stay and we still mention our stay often ... what a highlight!

We stayed over the Christmas period - 4 nights.

Our trip North was good, even on the single track road nearer the Lodge. Amazing scenery. On arriving at the Hotel we immediately felt in a Christmas mood - Christmas tree in the hall, "Santa stop her" sign on the door and the very majestic staircase decorated in lights, baubles and holly - as indeed was the rest of the Lodge. Tastefully done. Cosy and warm.

We were with 2 friends and we had booked rooms with a loch view - wonderful views of lawn, down to the sea and the herons, seals and various other birds. A warm room with very comfortable bed. A mix of old and new furniture with very striking lighting features - as there were in all the public rooms. Lots of hot water.

We ate dinner every evening - Christmas day was a late lunch and a buffet in the evening which was a great idea. The food was very good with a great local produce content. Desserts were amazing. Breakfasts were excellent with a great choice of hot and cold.

The bar offers a great range of whisky and gin - and a warming open fire.

The lounge was warm and welcoming with an open log fire and a good range of seating and here we had afternoon tea - pies, cakes, meringues..... very good indeed.

We took advantage of the snooker room as our after dinner exercise. Great fun.

Wonderful walks all around the hotel - we walked to Badachro and on Boxing day we walked to the crashed bomber up on the hill. An excellent walk if quite demanding on rocky terrain, well worth the effort. Quite emotional to see the list of victims.

During our stay the staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and professional.

All in all we had a wonderful Christmas and would certainly recommend this hotel/lodge to our friends. We hope to return.

My wife and I had the great fortune of staying at the Shieldaig Lodge in the summer of 2017. We found the lodge on the internet and took a chance. It is an old hunting lodge of the Shieldaig estate (Gairloch) that is located on the foot of an ocean Loch. It is in fantastic condition and located in A highland area that has much to offer. Gairloch and Poolewe have great small village charm and real Scots live there. We attended a caleigh in Poole that was a lifetime memory with the music, dancing, tea and cakes. Such warm and welcoming people. All ages and no previous dancing experience is necessary.
The lodge has approx a dozen rooms, fantastic dining and the most welcoming and friendly staff. We got to know the staff that are mostly locals from the wait staff, bar staff, manager, gardeners, and falconer. Yes, they have a falconry on site and you can have a handling experience with Garith. I fell in love with a young barn owl that we flew on the estate.
Also, shooting, stalking (deer observing) fishing (lake or ocean) and hiking is available. The Fairey Loch hike is very good. The trail head is on the property and crosses mores on the way to small upland lakes ( approx 2 miles max) where there is a memorial at the site of a WWII era B25 bomber that crashed while on the way home. Very moving. The terrain is spectacular with inspiring ocean/loch views. Here the war was very close to these people and country.
I highly recommend this lodge for a very memorable get-away where you get to experience Highlander charm and hospitality in a setting that dates back to the Scottish great estate era.

We’ve just got home from our fourth visit to Shieldaig Lodge in the last year. As always it was a perfect break in the most beautiful surroundings. Having first discovered the hotel by accident last March we keep getting drawn back by its myriad charms. The staff are amazing. Each and every one we meet looks after us so well, from Ismet the general manager to the young waiting staff and Sandra the housekeeper.   The view from the front is captivating, and there are few pleasures in life greater than sitting in the lounge enjoying a G&T while watching the seals playing in the bay. It’s an experience that one can never tire of, regardless of the weather.   The bar has over 200 whiskies and more than 80 gins, and the hotel offers a bespoke whisky blending package that allows you to tailor your own perfect taste.   The rooms are stunning, it’s worth spending a little more and getting a loch view room if available - you won’t regret it! Dinner at Shieldaig Lodge is a must - reasonably priced and sourced locally whenever possible. Venison, cod, guinea fowl, the list goes on. Always cooked and presented perfectly. Just last night I had the most wonderful seafood starter followed by venison. Thinking about it makes me glad we’re already booked to return in April. Equally impressive is the breakfast, a wide choice of pastries, cereals and fruits in addition to the incredible full Scottish cooked offering. Obviously the cooked is the highlight of the lot! Right on the doorstep there are more things to see and do than I could list here. A ten minute drive to Red Point beach, reputedly one of the Queen’s favourites, the gardens at Inverewe, the perfumery and cafe at Aultbea (where the gorgeous breakfast black pudding is made) and the stunning drive to Applecross are all on the doorstep.   If you’re undecided on which hotel to book for your visit to the west highlands then I suggest you go and meet Ismet, Lisa and the team at Shieldaig Lodge. You’ll love it!

We've just returned from a wonderful weekend break at this hotel. The location is stunning with beautiful sea views with an abundance of wildlife to see. The hotel is very comfy with beautiful furniture/decor. The staff were very attentive and the food first class. We cannot fault this hotel in any way and will hopefully return some day. Thank you
