Cairn Shiel is a modern bungalow which stands in a private and prime location within the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve, which is renowned for its variety of wildlife, magnificent scenery and mountain trails; an ideal base for a variety of outdoor activities, wildlife and landscape photography, touring the North West Highlands, or simply relaxing in majestic surroundings. The house has commanding views on all sides, including two of Scotland's greatest mountains; Beinn Eighe and Slioch, with Liathach, Beinn Alligin and the Torridon Mountains close by. Pine Martens visit the house regularly (especially if you feed them!) and deer and eagles are often seen.
