Accommodation Review - Shieldaig Lodge, Gairloch
Shieldaig Lodge is a Victorian hunting lodge set in a 26,000 acre estate next to Loch Gairloch.
It has lovely waterside views from the lounge and dining room and a massive selection of whisky and gin in the bar, It was disappointing though that there was no menu for the whisky and gin collection which left you not knowing prices and with no descriptions of flavour/nose to tempt you to try out something new.
We stuck to old favourites as a result, which was a missed opportunity.
The hotel has a falconry, which adds a bit of interest, and a snooker table if you fancy a game. This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in though and – although it is comfortable and the restaurant serves local produce – there is better value to be found elsewhere.
