Eilean Shona House
The ruins of Castle Tioram, the traditional home of the Clanranalds lies just across the Loch. On Loch Moidart itself there are many tiny uninhabited islands, they are the stuff of children's stories. JM Barrie rented the island in the 1920's and wrote the screenplay for Peter Pan here. Eilean Shona was also the inspiration for his play 'The Marie Rose'. He wrote of Eilean Shona, "We have mountains and lochs and boats, tennis and billiards and most of the Western islands of Scotland lying at our feet."
Eilean Shona House has a modest fašade concealing a wealth of entertaining and living space, decorated and furnished in style with comfort and ease as its priority. One of its features is the artwork, bought and commissioned by the owners, many of which were created on the island.
The house is surrounded by a large informal garden that falls towards the sea. The rhododendron and azaleas provide an explosion of colour in late spring with the pinetum providing rare trees to view all year round.
