Shiskine is situated in the small crofting community of Aultgrishan, 8 miles north of Gairloch, on the Wester Ross coast. A beautiful drive from Gairloch along the spectacular coastline. From here you have amazing views over The Minch to the Isle of Skye, The Shiant Isles, and the Isles of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Scottish Natural Heritage have designated the area as one of Scotland's National Scenic Areas, where you can enjoy the wildlife, spectacular views, wide open spaces and big skies - a place to 'get away from it all'..... and you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights.
If it's peace, quiet and relaxation you are after you can be sure to find it in this place.
