The traditional stone lodge dates from the 1880s but has been fully modernised and is a warm and comfortable self catering holiday home. The owners have lived there until recently so the house is well equipped for easy living. You can sink into a comfortable new double bed in what used to be the nursery, with its animal frieze still on the wall, or bath in the big claw foot bath with lashings of hot water. For disabled users there is a good quality sofa bed in the ground floor study and a nearby easy access shower.
The whole house is fully central heated and feels warm and cosy, especially with the Aga in the kitchen. On a winter evening light a big fire in the living room from the unlimited supply of logs and sink into the comfortable arm chairs and sofas. In summer, enjoy a lunch time barbecue on the outdoor verandah overlooking the sparkling loch.
For naturalists the area is a haven for flora and fauna with great bird watching opportunities. Black Throated Divers nest on Loch Shin and deer can often be seen from the house in early morning and at dusk.
The Lodge owns two boats on Loch Shin for fishing or just for messing around in boats. The Ghillie is on site and available by arrangement to help and the hill lochs and Fiag and Tirry rivers provide lots of opportunities for fishermen.
Shinness is the perfect self catering holiday home from which to visit the northern Highlands. Play golf, go hill walking or watch the salmon leap up the Shin Falls just beyond Lairg and then enjoy a lovely meal. Go east for great golf courses at Dornoch, Brora and Golspie and visit romantic Dunrobin Castle. Bonar Bridge has serious off road cycling trails, a great nine hole golf course and a good bistro. The huge cliffs at Durness and the mysterious Smoo caves are an easy hour away, together with the empty white sands of the long West Coast beaches. Bird watching is wonderful at Handa Island and the hill walking opportunities include Ben Hope, Scotland’s most northerly Munro.

Holiday Protection Scheme
Holiday Protection Scheme
Cottages & Castles Ltd. (acting as agents for property owners) provides a guarantee for tenants who have to cancel their holiday at a cottage.
If it is necessary to cancel your holiday, for any of the reasons A 1-5 below, you may do so at any time up until the close of business on the last working day before your tenancy commences and we will refund your balance. Your deposit is not refundable. If you have made a late booking and paid in full you will receive your payment minus the normal deposit sum (usually 30%).
There is no charge for this holiday protection – it is included in the cost of your holiday. Please note that the protection does not apply to holidays in our properties with codes beginning with P (usually castles, mansions and lodges).
Deposits may be transferred to a different date for a holiday at the same property within 12 months of the original holiday date, subject to availability, but not, however, for a different property. If the new booking is at a higher rate the tenant must pay the extra cost. No refund will be made if the new date is at a lower rate.
