Over a period of many years we have stayed in a large number of B&Bs throughout Scotland, and the Aurora is our now at the top of our list! The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, the house is particularly comfortable and spotlessly clean, and of course situated in Scotland's most scenic grandeur. The panoramic view from the guest lounge... More

We spent a wonderful three nights here. Shieldaig itself is a lovely village in beautiful scenery, and the B&B itself couldn't really have been better. The place was comfortable (and completely spotless!), the breakfast was great, and Ann & Thomas were welcoming and incredibly helpful -- not just a mine of useful information and tips, but we were particularly impressed...

The room was spacious and we got a reprieve from living out of our suitcases by using the open shelving and hanging rails for our clothes. The shared living... More

If you're thinking of visiting the Torridon Mountains I cannot recommend this bed and breakfast highly enough.
