Wonderfully set hotel with separate contemporary bar, real ales and enjoyable food; tranquil bedrooms

For wildlife lovers, this charming place makes a fine base for spotting otters, sea eagles, seals and even the rare pine marten; the view over forested Shieldaig Island to Loch Torridon and then out to the sea beyond is stunning. Separate from the hotel, the bright, attractive bar is on two storeys with an open staircase; dining is on the first floor and a decked balcony has a magnificent water and village view. The place is gently contemporary and nicely relaxed with timbered floors, timber-boarded walls, shiny bolts through exposed timber roof beams and an open kitchen. A couple of changing ales such as Strathcarron Golden Cow and Red Cow on handpump and up to a dozen wines by the glass; background music, TV, darts, pool and board games. Tables outside in a sheltered little courtyard are well placed to enjoy the gorgeous position. To preserve the peace and quiet, the comfortable bedrooms have no TVs and no telephones, though each has its own sitting area; good, ample breakfasts.
