Glen Shiel

 

Glen Shiel is a glen in theNorthwest Highlands of Scotland.
The glen runs approximately 9 miles from south-east to north-west, from the Cluanie Inn (216 metres) at the western end of Loch Cluanie and the start of Glenmoriston to sea level at the village of Shiel Bridge and Loch Duich.[1] The northern side of the glen lies within the Kintail and Morvich estate owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
The A87 Road to the Isles runs the full length of the glen, reaching a high point of 271 metres two miles west of the Cluanie Inn. The remnants of the military road connecting Fort Augustus to the Bernera barracks in Glenelg built between 1750 and 1784 by William Caulfeild, the successor to General Wade, can be seen a quarter of a mile west of the Cluanie Inn.
The North Glen Shiel ridge that forms the northern side of the glen consists of the Five Sisters of Kintail (Sgrr na Ciste Duibhe, Sgrr na Crnach, Sgrr Fhuaran, Sgrr nan Spinteach and Sgrr nan Saighead) in the lower part of the glen, and Sileag, Sgrr a' Bhealaich Dheirg and Aonach Meadhoin in the upper part.

Woodlands

Tel: 07503 7308734

Woodlands has often been called 'The Tardis' because its exterior belies the huge interior. Its size and layout accommodates large groups with ease. It is warm, spacious and extremely comfortable. Standing in half an acre of land, there is ample parking space for multiple cars - even a boat! The large well-equipped kitchen with long dining table is a big hit with guests.

With five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a huge lounge (6m x 6m) and a kitchen that houses a twelve-seater table, twelve people fit comfortably in the house. There is also a small 'snug' with views of the FiveSisters. Outside there is a timber garage that houses a pool table and dart board. Please note that this is a very, very basic games room.

With 22 Munros in the area, countless mid and low level walks from lochside to forest and everything in between, Woodlands is a haven for walkers. Its position in relation to the rest of the Highlands and Islands also make it an ideal base for the tourer. However, there is so much to see and do in the area you might not have time to go too far afield.

The mountain views visible from most of the rooms of Woodlands are are ever-changing. Colours, light and atmospheric conditions alter from minute to minute creating beautiful vistas from moody and misty to bright and colourful, glistening in the unique Scottish light. Please note, the nearby loch is not visible from the house.

Standing at the front gate on a windy night with the choppy waters of the loch lit up in the moonlight and the forest rustling behind, it is easy to imagine oneself in a bygone era.
