About The Sheiling

Situated by the edge of Loch Broom on the outskirts of Ullapool, The Sheiling is set within one acre of its own grounds and enjoys spectacular views of mountains and lochs. The house, purpose built in 1989, is owned and run by Iain and Lesley MacDonald.

The Sheiling

The Sheiling comprises six letting bedrooms, double and twin-bedded, all with en-suite facilities - some with bath, some with shower. All rooms have a hospitality tray. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, and two of the upstairs bedrooms have loch views.

There is a comfortable residents lounge with open fire and TV, which is available all day should the weather be inclement, and a spacious split-level breakfast room where only the best of Highland fare is served. Both these rooms look out over the loch.

Free WiFi is available throughout the house. In the residents lounge, for those visitors without laptops, we also have a computer with free internet access.

The Sheiling Facilities

Our Facilities

Within our grounds is the “Sportsmans Lodge” comprising laundry, drying room, sauna and shower, and secure motor-cycle store.

Guests who prefer the outdoors might wish to enjoy an afternoon relaxing on our patio overlooking the loch, or there are many walks which are easily accessible from Ullapool to suit all abilities, from an easy stroll to a demanding Munro.

For evening meals or a leisurely lunch, Ullapool has a fine selection of hotels and restaurants, most within easy walking distance.

The Sheiling is strictly no smoking and dogs are accepted only by prior arrangement.



As a base to explore the Highlands or somewhere to stop and enjoy the beautiful environment, Ullapool has it all. Stunning views, wildlife and lots of events throughout the year.
