The Sheiling for 2 people is a spacious wooden chalet, often described as 'Dr Who's Tardis' as it looks much smaller on the outside than on the inside. It has a fitted kitchen with cooker, fridge and microwave and a remarkably big bathroom complete with wash basin, bath and power shower. The bed sitting room comprises of two single beds, a bedside cabinet and separate reading lights over each bed. The sitting area has two very comfortable chairs which can be re-arranged for your own comfort, for relaxing, watching TV, listening to the wireless,  playing CDs or just reading a good book. There is a fold-away dining table and chairs and also a well stocked bookcase in the entrance porch. The bird feeders outside your windows are filled daily and there is a picnic table on the lawn outside the Sheiling for your use.

Garden Birds at Ardrioch
Here at Ardrioch we have a large variety of birds and wildlife right outside your windows for you to enjoy. Arthur feeds the garden birds all year around and many of our guests like photographing them from there cottage windows. At the bottom of the garden, close to the compost heap, we have a tin sheet that warms up in the summer and under it we find slow worms, toads and voles. We also have resident Hedgehogs.
Within in a short 10 minute walk of Ardrioch you can go down to the forshore of Loch Cuin and find ducks, waders and an Otter is seen regularly. Small woodland birds can be seen on the track down to the loch side. Looking up behind the house you may even see Golden Eagles or White-tail Sea Eagles which can also be seen flying in the area, sometimes right over the house.
At night you can hear the hoot of the tawny owl which nests in the woodland behind the house or the screech of our local barn owl.
A Bird list  and Bird books will be provided in your cottage for your holiday birds.

At Ardrioch we are trying to be 'Greener' and so to this end  we have put in Solar Panels to produce electricity for both our home and our self-catering cottages. During the summer months the electricity that you use will come from our Solar power. The panels are discreetly positioned, out of sight away from the house in one of our fields.
We also try to use Eco light bulbs, ecological cleaning products and recycle as much of our waste products as we can, including using the compost heap at the bottom of the garden which is also a winter home to Slow Worms.
