"Fantastic home from home"
Cairn Shiel is an immaculate tastefully decorated comfortable home. It did not feel like a holiday home at all. The kitchen had everything we needed, dishwasher was a godsend. The weather was terrible but it didn't spoil our holiday and I wish I could have packed the view from the bedroom and sitting room windows, it is breathtaking. Never saw the Pinemarten but it did eat all the food! Would like to go back in fine weather and enjoy sitting out to enjoy the birds and that view.

"Lovely - and possibly the only self-catering cottage inside Beinn Eighe national park"
As a mountaineer i can honestly say if i could buy a cottage in any location Torridon's Ciarn Sheil would be it. Beinn Eighe is basically in the backgarden, with Liathach & Beinn Alligin five minutes drive down the road. If you head in the other direction you come (via the lovely cosy climber's pub at Kinlochewe Hotel within easy walking distance!) to the base of Slioch... what more could you want? Actually if the answer to that is comfortable accommodation with some resident pine martens and an accesible selection of non-challenging but still stunning walks (in case your muscles need a chance to recover between Munroes) then stay here - you will not regret anything but leaving!
