Shiskine's Location

Overlooking the sea and the islands, Shiskine sits at the top of a grassy slope above a beach in the small crofting community of Aultgrishan. It is located 8 miles along the coast from Gairloch village, in the NorthWest Highlands of Scotland.This is a very quiet and peaceful area, remote from people, traffic and noise, and is nestled among mountains and sea. Be prepared for big skyscapes and seascapes, spectacular sunsets, and plenty of wildlife.

Many of our guests come here to find rest and relaxation from a busy schedule in their own lives. With walks from the door, constantly changing colours in the sky and sea, and sounds of nature all around, it is difficult not to unwind. Spend time walking, reading, scanning the sea and sky, taking photographs, whatever appeals....

Shiskine is 8 miles from Gairloch. To reach us you will drive along the beautiful coast road and along the clifftops to Aultgrishan, mostly on single track road.

Gairloch itself is a typical highland village strung out along the shores of Loch Gairloch, and has been inhabited since the Iron Age.

It has several hotels, restaurants and coffee shops, food shops, pharmacy, churches, bank, garage/ petrol station, medical centre, museum and a working harbour where boats land shellfish from the loch and beyond, and from where you can take boat trips around the loch or further out to sea in search of whales.
