Our manager, Paul Waddington and his team are available to help you on the island during your stay and arrange transport, as well as give tips on walks and other things to do.

Eilean Shona is tucked into Loch Moidart just off the West coast of Scotland. The Ardnamurchan peninsula is to the south, the isles of Eigg, Muck and Rhum to the west and Skye to the north. It is two and a half miles long by one and a half wide with fifteen hundred acres of hill land and six hundred acres of woodland, three hundred acres of the woodland is made up of ancient and rare pine trees.

The Island is a wonderful natural haven for wild life, plants and many rare trees brought from distant shores over a hundred years ago. The island is criss-crossed with a network of secluded paths winding through acres of woodland and over the heather covered hills. Along its shore are numerous tiny inlets, coves and at every point there are breathtaking views forever changing with the tides and the season. This stunningly situated private island is free of cars with a secluded feel, making it a naturalist's paradise that is only ten minutes boat ride from the mainland.

White Cottage is nestled into the island's protected south east corner overlooking the loch. Shoe Bay, Shona's stunning beach is a blue lagoon when the tide is high and a vast white sandy bowl when the tide is out. There is a mighty hill to climb, reaching just shy of 1000 ft with fine views of the Western Isles. The entire island takes a good six hours to walk around or two or three hours by sea kayak. The topography from north to south and east to west varies enormously offering many diverse environments from the ragged Atlantic coast to the protected and magnificent channel to the north.

Castle Tioram was the traditional home of the Clanranalds and a key strategic asset in the Lord of the Isles defence of his demesnes. The castle ruins, a key feature of the region, can be seen through many cottage windows and as you walk and row along the south coast.

The Island abounds with wildlife: an array of seabirds, deer, seals, families of otters, nesting sea eagles, red squirrels and rare pine marten. Eilean Shona is a peaceful place – a calm and tranquil setting to relax, walk, paint, read, write, and indulge in bird-watching and sea otter spotting.

There are several ways to get to here. There are daily flights to Glasgow on Easyjet from London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris.Lufthansa flies to Glasgow from Dusseldorf. From Glasgow you can rent a car and travel through the stunning Highland landscape.
You can travel on Scot Rail from London Euston either on the day or overnight service to Fort William. From Fort William it is an hour taxi ride to the jetty on the mainland.
There is private parking on the Dorlin Pier for those that hire or drive their own car.

A rib is used to transport you to and from the mainland on arrival and departure days and there is the opportunity to leave the island on a Wednesday for sightseeing or shopping. Journeys outside this can be negotiated but subject to charge.

Very close to the landing pontoon, in the village hall, we have wi-fi for all cottage guests to use, as well as a ping pong table and books to read. We also have a wildlife sightings white board.
The cottage is self-catering so you will need to bring food for your stay. There is a Morrisons store right next to Fort William Train Station. In addition, we can help arrange food deliveries to the island. We have a small shop located next to the Village Hall which sells essentials in case you may have forgotten anything.
Eilean Shona aspires to be carbon-neutral by encouraging recycling where possible, limiting the use of plastics, wood burning stoves etc.


Règlement intérieur
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait à partir de 16:00

To get the most out of Eilean Shona, it helps to be at one with nature by respecting the environment, not lighting unsupervised fires, and being kind to the staff and fellow cottage guests!
