“We had a fantastic time at An Cos (as always) and had three full days of glorious sunshine too, which was a bonus! We’d love to book for next summer”

“We had a wonderful stay – I could have stayed indefinitely! The house is beautiful and suited everyone in the party. A holiday memory for the annals.”

Fabulous stay… An Cos is always very welcoming – we love the heated floors, plush furnishings and d├ęcor, great views over the island and ocean and great access to walks, large or small. Hope to be back soon.

An Cos Shieldaig is Heaven on Earth! Everything has been so well thought out with guests’ comfort being the only priority. The kitchen is superbly equipped, the lounge with blazing log fire is gorgeous and the bedrooms are fabulous! Everything has been done with such style and good taste and it is all in immaculate condition. The house is in a stunning location with amazing views over the Loch. The walks are breathtaking and we drove through beautiful countryside to some amazing places. I am running out of superlatives (!) but I really can’t praise An Cos Shieldaig enough – it is sublime!

An Cos is superb – setting,views,design,fit out,maintenance,cleanliness,welcome. I have stayed in many holiday homes over many years. In short, this is in a class of its own.

8-15th July ’16 Sitting proudly on a hill overlooking the most beautiful loch in Shieldaig sits an exceptionaly beautiful house known as An Cos. A house that is maintained to the highest of standards with the most beautiful of furnishings, we wanted for nothing! Fiona the house manager greeted us with the most joyous of welcomes. Fionas tour of hhe house and how things worked along with tips and hints on where to eat along with an insight of what was on offer on Shieldaigs doorstep. I have to go back to the house again and mention the steam room…wow! And not to forget the welcoming traditional food that was awaiting us! Homemade scones, local smoked salmon and fruit cake., beautiful. Will we go back ? Oh yes , who wouldn’t after sampling such beautiful delights. The house is a must and was the icing on the cake in the most beautiful of surroundings. Thank you, The Torbet family.

We had a wonderful holiday in this truly luxurious house! We have stayed in many lovely houses in the highlands over the years but this one would be hard to beat. From the luxurious decor and furnishings, to the immense attention to every tiny detail. It was too hot to use the steam room, but we did need the parasol! What an amazing place.
