About the House
Standing in a glen that boasts no fewer than 21 Munros, Woodlands enjoys the best of both worlds being in a remote location yet having a shop, bar and restaurant all within walking distance. The house sleeps 10/12 (5 bedrooms [plus two single futons]),  and has 4 bath and/or shower rooms.  In the house there is a wireless broadband and in one of the outbuildings there is a pool table and dart board.  More information about the house plus photos of the interior are further down this page.
For Walkers and Climbers
Woodlands is a fantastic base for walkers and climbers. Apart from the multitude of Munros in Glenshiel itself, (the Five Sisters and Saddle being accessed directly from  the house!), there's a whole host of other walks to do including coastal, valley and woodland. Other mountain ranges reachable from Woodlands are The Cuillin hills, Torridon, Ben Nevis range, Glen Affric, Glenelg and Knoydart.  In addition Glencoe is about two hours away.

For the Tourer
Woodlands is extremely well-placed for touring the Highlands and Islands.  Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Applecross accessed via the highest road in Scotland, or take a cruise along Loch Ness and visit Urquhart Castle. Closer to home there is the glorious Glenelg peninsular, the delightful Plockton or you may fancy going over the sea to Skye.  Go whale watching, take a seal trip, sail in a glass bottomed boat, go boating, pony trekking, mackerel fishing or just relax in the house and enjoy the views
Other Attractions Include
The nearby Falls of Glomach, Eilean Donan Castle, the Iron Age Brochs of Glenelg and, of course, the abundance of wildlife the area has to offer. Golden eagles, pine martens, seals, porpoises, otters, wild goats and red deer have all been spotted in the vicinity.  There was even a whale in nearby Loch Duich once!
