It’s wet, windy and you probably won’t get a phone signal but if you’re looking for a destination that’s off the beaten track then this is it. Don’t be fooled by how tiny Shieldaig is; there’s a pub, a shop and some incredible views. What more could you want?
If you’re looking for some travel inspiration and want somewhere that takes you away from the tourist areas then this could be it. While it’s probably better to visit in the summer when you may be luckier with the weather, Shieldaig can appeal all year round. Summer visitors can take walks in the surrounding mountains but when the weather gets colder you may just want to curl up in the local pub and take in the sea views.
