Shieldaig

4.9
Shieldaig is a village in Wester Ross in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland.The village was founded in 1800 with a view to training up seamen for war against Napoleon. After his defeat and exile to Elba, the community found itself a new role as a fishing village. The small island just offshore never had its tall pines harvested to rig warships, and has now become a nature sanctuary.The name of the village is a Viking word meaning loch of the herring which do indeed still populate the bay in some profusion.Shieldaig is a community of around 85 people, with its own school, a small pub, a village hall and a church. It is much used as a holiday destination, attracting those interested fishing, and explorers of the Torridon Hills, which are a few miles around the coast.Shieldaig holds a community fete in the second weekend of August.
Shieldaig is in Ross and Cromarty. Plan your holiday in Shieldaig and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our United Kingdom online vacation planner .
