"The ultimate Highland hideaway" - The Times

Shieldaig Lodge is a recently refurbished Victorian hunting lodge set in a 26,000 acre estate amongst stunning scenery of the West Highlands nestled next to Shieldaig Bay. Situated a short distance from the Highland village of Gairloch, the hotel retains the warm and welcoming atmosphere of its original 19th century origins. 

Recently refurbished, we have cosy snugs with real log fires, games room as well as perfectly manicured gardens and magnificent  waterside views. Furthermore, The Liberator Bar is home to over 250 award winning whiskies and over 110 world class gins, including every Scottish gin!

Our business facilities are elegant yet practical. Travelling away on business doesn’t mean you have to give up your home comforts. If you are looking for the perfect getaway for team building and boardroom style meetings, Shieldaig Lodge offers the ideal setting to ensure a no-interruption venue for that purpose. Take the Lodge exclusively with all 12 bedrooms included to make it your 'head office' for your event, or we can develop a bespoke approach. Either way, your team can benefit from the intimate surroundings for your strategic thinking, before heading out into the Scottish wilderness for some adventures of a different kind.

Meetings & Conferences


Located on our estate, the falconry centre invites you to get up close and personal with a selection of birds including eagles, falcons, hawks and owls. Take part in an unforgettable flying experience which is educational, fun and above all exciting!
