The small picturesque village of Shieldaig boasts a truly superb location on the edge of Loch Shieldaig on the Applecross Peninsula.
Set against a backdrop of the mighty mountains of Torridon, Beinn Alligin and Liathach in particular, the village is a scattering of largely white-washed cottages along the shore. The town’s views are dominated by Shieldaig Island located off the village shore on Loch Torridon. Covered with rocky outcrops, seaweed, and Caledonian Pine trees, the island is managed by the National Trust for Scotland.
The town comes complete with a small range of tourist services including accommodation, places to eat and drink, and a shop.
