Campbell House a former Customs house is a detached stone-built house approx. 200 yrs old. For a west coast holiday the picturesque fishing village of Shieldaig is hard to beat, fantastic sunsets fabulous high mountains beautiful coastline and beaches, and the abundant wildlife is all around.
Campbell House stands on the loch side, in the centre of the village overlooking loch Shieldaig and Shieldaig Island which is a National Trust site of special scientific interest and has a thriving bird population, including Herons, Kestrels, Black Guillemots, Long Eared Owls and Mergansers. The RSPB along with the Shieldaig community have raised funds to have two Sea Eagles tagged and brought to Shieldaig island to lay their egg(s) and a TV screen has been installed in a small craft shop in the village and a camera, which is pointing into the nest, to watch the eagle on her eggs and all the activity including the hatching of them.
Shieldaig lies between Torridon and its ancient mountains and the Applecross peninsula in the midst of magnificent mountain and coastal scenery. It is an ideal centre for hill walking, climbing, boating, fishing, wildlife watching and touring. Torridon is 110 miles north of Fort William and 80 miles west of Inverness.
