Off the tourist trail

Shiskine sits in the small crofting community of Aultgrishan, 8 miles north of Gairloch, right on the coast. Come and imagine life as it would have been years ago in a quiet, remote, unspoilt area where peat is cut, sheep roam freely, and abandoned stone crofts scatter the hillsides

The remote Scottish NW Coast

Shiskine is alongside the NC500 route on the Wester Ross coast. A beautifully scenic drive from Gairloch along the spectacular coastline. From Shiskine you can look across The Minch to the Isle of Skye, The Shiant Isles, and the Isles of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

The Natural Environment

Scottish Natural Heritage have designated the area as one of Scotland's National Scenic Areas. It is a UNESCO Biosphere reserve, and it contains the UK's oldest National Nature Reserve. When you're here you can enjoy the ocean and the mountains, the woodlands and moorlands, stunning beaches, amazing wildlife, spectacular views, wide open spaces, glorious sunsets and big skyscapes.

Relax, refresh and recharge

Shiskine is a place to 'get away from it all'..... if it's peace and quiet you are after you can be sure to find it here
