Loch Shiel Studio Folding Wall Bed Down

The studio is perfectly located to enjoy stunning views of Loch Shiel with the majestic Ben Resipol rising in the distance. Set within what was once one of a number of church manses in the area, it now provides modern and deluxe self-catering accommodation with a well-equipped high specification kitchenette together with an elegant shower room. The king size folding wall bed offers you the opportunity of maximising the space during the day and then transforms the studio in the evening into a cosy haven for sleeping. Blackout blinds mean that your dreams won’t be disturbed by the early sunrises or late sunsets during the summer months.

The kitchenette within the studio provides an integrated fridge freezer; a full-size dishwasher and easy to use combination microwave oven, meaning that you can readily self-cater while enjoying everything that Ardnamurchan and Lochaber have to offer.

Attention has been paid to every detail in preparing this space for our guests, with a strong emphasis on what is good for health, wellbeing and the environment. Snuggling down under a natural wool Devon Duvet on a wool and cotton top layer mattress with pure cotton bedding ensures a good nights sleep.

With bedding carefully washed with Ecover Zero plant based biodegradable laundry liquid, together with environmentally friendly Lakeland Paints throughout, you are assured of a healthy haven to retreat too. With solid wood flooring and PFA free stainless steel pans and cooking utensils, you'll have peace of mind while relaxing to the sound of the local wildlife through an open window.

Grid supplied renewable electricity with electric hob and combination microwave oven also make for a cleaner, healthier environment within the studio. In addition to all this care for our guests, we'll also plant a tree in our Trees for Life grove to offset the carbon footprint from your visit.

Ready for adventure...

Tempted by some canoeing or paddleboarding while staying at Loch Shiel Studio? I can take our guests out for the day (10-4) either on the tranquil Loch Shiel or the majestic Loch Moidart with its abundance of wildlife. The cost is £100 per person for the day and includes packed lunch and all the equipment you will need (except clothing such as swimwear, wet suit or wet weather gear). I also offer afternoon (1-4) paddleboarding at £50 per person.

Arrangements made are subject to my availability as well as suitable water and weather conditions. As such I can only confirm adventure bookings and take payment after your arrival at the studio. Should you wish to make other arrangements in advance, then you may want to consider local operators such as Otter Adventures and Rock Hopper.
