We stayed here during our recent staycation trip to Scotland and would thoroughly recommend anyone travelling to stay here. Gillian and Mark are lovely hosts who go the extra mile to make sure everything is right. Breakfast and dinner choices and preparation are great and food is very well cooked. The bar is well stocked. Bedrooms are very clean and Gillian ensures that the whole house is covid secure. The location is remote and great for walking or just sitting, the drive in and out is great through narrow roads in amazing scenery. We will return.

We have just returned from this gem. What an amazing place to stay. The Shore House is a beautiful guest house, the owners, Gillian and Mark helped make this a wonderful stay. They were very polite, professional and knowledgeable about the area and perfect hosts. The view from our room was spectacular and it overlooked the beautiful loch Goil. Prior to our stay, we did not know anything about the Loch or the area but wow, were we in for a treat. After leaving the main road, we had a beautiful drive through the hills and and mountain woodland, to reach The Shore House. It is located in a very quiet area with unrivaled views across the Loch. There is no vehicle noise as the accommodation is down a small track, it was very quiet which helped make our stay so peaceful. The setting is wonderful. I cannot fault the breakfasts or evening meals, all cooked to perfection, with a varied menu to choose from. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended it by an extra night. The rooms were very spacious, comfortable, decorated well and spotlessly clean. Gillian never hesitated to replenish our tea, coffee and water supplies in the room. We look forward to visiting The Shore House again. During our stay, we were fortunate enough to see a pair of whales in the loch, swimming around and leaping out of the water. Plus red squirrels in the area. There were no negatives at all.

Wow, that’s such a fabulous review! Thank you Steve. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the Shore House so much. It’s lovely that you were here to see the whales as it’s very rare for them to come into Loch Goil. We look forward to welcoming you back to our little ‘slice of paradise’ in the future. Best wishes, Gillian and Mark

We absolutely loved our stay at The Shore House at the start of August 2020. Gillian and Mark are the perfect hosts and are so warm, welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is in an idyllic location and it feels like a real treat to stay here. Breakfast choices are varied and the cooked options well cooked, presented and delicious. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. We’d recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Gillian and Mark. Sally and Paul.

I love this place.... we’ve been coming here all the years it was a hotel & staying since it became a guest house. Gillian & Mark are the best hosts, lovely people. We would not have stayed anywhere else for our first post lockdown trip, I am nervous about the virus, but my trust was not misplaced. Everything is sparkling and sanitised. We had room one this time, very comfortable indeed, with that view down the loch....perfect. The food excellent as ever.
