Enjoy everything the west coast of the Scottish Highlands has to offer when you stay at The Sheiling.

This family-run three-bedroom house near Arisaig is a short walk from the sea, close to beautiful beaches, and has wonderful views of the Small Isles and the mountains of Skye. It’s perfect for a relaxing break or as a base to explore the area.

A white bungalow nestled in the lush countryside of Back of Keppoch. The house, with its neat grey roof and white chimneystack, is encircled by a wooden fence and set against a backdrop of mature trees and a vibrant blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds

The Sheiling, Back of Keppoch

The Sheiling is a modern, three-bedroom bungalow situated on a quiet lane at Back of Keppoch, a mile from the picturesque village of Arisaig. 

It sleeps five (or six if using the fold-down bed). There is a large drive with parking for two or three cars and a fenced garden surrounds the house, with garden picnic bench and outdoor chairs. From the garden you can see the sea to one side and mountains to the other.

The living room has comfortable sofas, a desk and office chair, smart TV, excellent wifi, Bluetooth speaker and selection of games and puzzles. But the main attraction is the large picture window with its spectacular view of the Small Isles and the mountains of Skye. From here you can watch stunning sunsets.

This was our first trip home in 5 years, and our first in decades to visit the village of Arisaig. Our stay was just perfect! The cottage was conveniently located close to the village but far enough away to give the sense of seclusion that we were looking for. The property is warm and welcoming, spacious and fully equipped. It has the most stunning views from all aspects. Talk about a room with a view… you won’t be disappointed!
We are already planning our next trip!! 💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙

We had a great time at The Sheilling at Back of Keppoch. This lovely bungalow is located in a very quiet position about 3kms outside of Arisaig with wonderful, uninterrupted views looking over to Skye, Eigg and Rum.
Everything you need for a comfortable holiday is provided by the owners. The cottage has 3 bedrooms and a living room which offers amazing views over to the islands and unforgettable sunsets. A welcome pack was provided listing all the local attraction  and details of many walks around the area, allowing us to easily plan excursions.
A great location for exploring the beautiful surrounding area, Loch Morar and the lovely beaches of Silver Sands a short drive or cycle away. There is a small supermarket in Arisaig and a larger one in Mallaig. 
An unforgettable experience staying in such a  beautiful location in a lovely cottage. We can’t wait to return. Linda and Derek, Scotland

We were lucky enough to have use of this wonderful home for our first ever visit to Arisaig. Homely, spacious, fully furnished, well equip and considerately run, this beautiful home from home truly is a wonderful place of rest and fabulous base from which to explore the surrounding gems. Beaches, walks, sunsets, day trips and memory making, at their best, all await. We were not disappointed and are already looking forward to our next trip later this year. Many thanks Watt family.
