  • When is the best time to visit your property for the perfect beach holiday?
    Difficult to say really - probably May/June, which is when we tend to have some nice sunny weather and also it is too early for midges (not that they are generally an issue on beaches). Having said that this is Scotland and the weather is unpredictable - we have had glorious days earlier in the year, and also in July / August. You never can tell!
    Answered on 10 September 2019
  • Sorry to ask probably a silly question, but is the “apartment” the whole building in the 21st picture or does the property comprise of multiple flats?
    The apartment is the whole of the first floor of the building. We live on the ground floor of the building. The apartment has it's own entrance separate from ours, which leads to a staircase up to the first floor.

  • We are looking for a place where we are more likely to see the northern lights in the November time. Is this location a good place for that?.
    We have seen the northern lights from here on numerous occasions but they are extremely unpredictable, and so it is most likely that you would not see them at all. I suggest the most likely place in the UK would be the northern tip of Lewis.
    Answered on 29 August 2021
  • We have no place to leave our new puppy. Could you please make an exception so that we could take care responsibly.
    Very sorry but we cannot accept guest's dogs at all on the site.
    Answered on 17 January 2021
  • Do you accept pets ?
    We do not accept pets I'm afraid.

Shiskine is a self catering holiday apartment in the small crofting community of Aultgrishan, 8 miles north of Gairloch, right on the coast, with stunning views over The Minch to the Isle of Skye, The Shiant Isles, and the Isles of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. It is entirely self-contained, occupying the first floor of our house, and is accessed via its own separate entrance. It has 2 ensuite bedrooms with king size beds and Egyptian cotton bedding. There is an equipped kitchen, a lounge and dining area, and a large foyer. Plenty of space for 2 people to relax and unwind.
We live on the ground floor of the building and are generally available each day, We will be very happy to help you with anything you might need.
The apartment has absolutely stunning views of the ocean, islands and mountains in every direction. We are very close to a beautiful empty beach although there is a fairly short but steep descent (on grass) at one point . Well worth it though! The area surrounding the apartment is crofting land with sheep and cattle wandering freely. It is a very quiet and tranquil environment with abundant wildlife. If you are looking for peace and quiet, and a place to relax and unwind, then this is it!
