An Cos is an amazing house in a phenomenal setting. There are not enough superlatives to describe the comfort, furnishings,equipment and sheer luxury of this house. Fiona’s welcome and her delicious scones and date and walnut bread are just what are needed on arrival and we enjoyed them and the welcome plate of smoked salmon delights from the local smokehouse. The area is rich with things to do and the resident sea eagles are a bonus to bird watchers and non birders alike. The Sheildeg Inn and Nannys right on the doorstep are both welcoming and a must to visit. Further afield The Torridon Inn, The Applecross Inn, Gille Brighde(Diabeg) Kishorn Seafood Bar are all superb. Attadale and Inverewe Gardens are also well worth a visit. The list of things to do is too huge for this review but really Sheildaig and An Cos are so lovely you don’t need to move anywhere.

A truly luxurious highland retreat We had a wonderful stay at An Cos and can’t rate it highly enough. The house is beautiful inside and out, with lovely furnishings and every detail considered for a comfortable and relaxing stay. I particularly enjoyed baking in the very well-equipped kitchen, and the steam room was wonderful to come back to after a day outdoors. The views across the loch are superb, meaning you don’t even have to leave the house to get your dose of stunning highland scenery, but there are plenty of great walks a short drive away too. An Cos is the perfect place to relax and unwind with family – we will be back!

We had a lovely weeklong stay at An Cos, the perfect highland getaway. Perched just above the charming village of Shieldaig, the house is both convenient and private. The view so lovely, and the house perfectly arranged and outfitted for even a large group or family. Fiona, who greeted us with information and a lovely tea, gave just the right combination of welcome and information. Even the neighbors were welcoming. We hope to be back!

Had a wonderful family holiday in this beautiful house. Everything that one could need……and more! Highly recommended

“What an amazing house, the quality of the finish is superb, it really is a beautiful family home rather than a holiday let. The location is equally stunning, with views out over Loch Shieldaig and easy access to the Torridon mountains”.

Binns Family (August 2017)

We have had a marvellous August week in An Cos with our families from Spain. Everything in the house was beautifully arranged and Fiona had kindly unpacked our Tesco order before we arrived and had left us a tasty surprise. We have holidayed regularly in Shieldaig but this was a special family celebration. Thank you.

Lidstrom Family (Sweden) (July 2017)

We had a splendid week! An Cos has a marvellous location, has all current modern comfort still with a local charm. Surroundings and village is unique. Thanks to Chrissy and Fiona for all the polite and friendly arrangements. We will definitely consider this for another visit!
