our stay
Thank you Will & Sue for letting us stay in your fantastic cottage. The views were absolutely stunning, plenty of local walks and what can you say about the Pine Marten. He/She was the highlight of our stay and we actually managed to see him twice before dark.
The cottage itself is very cosy whilst being spacious and well equipped.
Despite these difficult times it was a perfect break and we cannot thank you enough for all your help in making it happen.

“We discovered a fantastic wild region, we did some great walks around the nature reserve, and we came home to a cosy home Cairn Shiel. What a splendid holiday!” July 2018, Belgium

“We really enjoyed Cairn Shiel. The best accommodation we ever had in Scotland. Well equipped, spacious, good base for exploring. 24 hours a day Nat Geo from the window” Aug 2018, Netherlands

“Wow. What an absolutely fantastic, breath-taking, stunning, perfect holiday we have had here. Without doubt the best holiday we have ever had anywhere. Will have memories of being here forever. Already planning for coming back here next year” Aug 2018

“We must have stayed in over 100 cottages in the last 20 years of our walking breaks. All but a handful we would have happily revisited if there weren’t so many more places to explore. However, Cairn Shiel has risen to the top due to the excellent finishing touches. Added to this is the amazing scenery of the whole area and outside the picture window. Watching the Pine Marten each night has been a constant thrill and the gluttonous birds have been endlessly entertaining” Sept 2018

“A very wet week but really enjoyable. Lovely to return to a warm, cosy and well-equipped cottage. A privilege to see the Pine Martens every night. Thank you” Oct 2018
