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.
For climbers there are a number of high mountains within easy reach of Shieldaig and many interesting places to visit. The renowned Inverewe Gardens are not far away. Skye is a day trip away and there are plenty of beautiful walks around Shieldaig itself.
There is a well stocked shop and a hotel (Tigh an Eilean) in the village, both just a short walk from Campbell House. The Hotel has a welcoming bar that serves bar meals and an excellent restaurant. There are other good places to eat, catering for all tastes, in Torridon, Lochcarron, Strathcarron, Applecross and Kishorn - all just a 'scenic drive' away.

Campbell House is brilliantly situated in the very friendly little village of Shieldaig. The house is comfy, the garden is amazing (our dog loved it!) and being able to open the front door, walk 10 steps and be on the beach was just fabulous. 7 doors away is the local pub with great real ale and home cooking, and there are lots of walks from the door as well as further afield (the Torridon mountains are wonderful). Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday!
Shieldaig is an amazing venue offering a fantastic family holiday. Campbell House is well located and a very comfortable and well appointed house.
A real value for money holiday and Wilderness Cottages were very professional to deal with. We will use their cottages again.
Lovely location and great views. Plenty to see especially if you like wildlife and there are some great walks in the immediate area. Nice pub with good food close by. The cottage was well equiped and comfortable.
