Customer Reviews of Victoria Cottage, Shieldag, Wester Ross - sleeps 6
Simple cottage in a wonderful location. Wonderful view of Shieldaig Island and the sea loch. Friendly village and locally available seafood superb. We really enjoyed the holiday.
Mackay's very efficient. Excellent service. Mrs Macpherson was most helpful about linen as we had a complicated journey via various friends and 8 changes of train. The house was most comfortable and warm. It had everything we needed Wonderful location looking across the water to Shieldaig Island. Very peaceful. We have always stayed in Fasaig village (Torridon) before but will hope to stay at Victoria Cottage again soon.
"Home from home"
Have stayed before - only thing i would change is the beds - a little bit of roll together. Perfect base for a relaxing holiday and plenty to do round the area
