Ceol Na Mara is situated at the north end of Shieldaig village on the shore, directly across from Shieldaig Island. The Gaelic name of the property is pronounced "kyoll na mara" and means "Sound of the Sea". The house is also commonly referred to as "The Celtman House" and is a common training base for Celtman XTRI participants and also the event organisers base camp.
Shieldaig lies on the west coast of Scotland in Wester Ross, some 68 miles west of Inverness, and just a few miles from Torridon Glen for access to some of the most stunning mountains in the UK. It is the perfect base for a wide range of outdoor activities on land and sea, wildlife spotting, relaxing, and experiencing local culture, food & drink, with the house having its own small slipway to the water.
Shieldaig Island is a home for herons and Sea Eagles, and it is not uncommon to view Otters playing just offshore and gorging on freshly caught fish, or Pine Martens scouring in front of the house for food. Further offshore Porpoise and Dolphins regularly visit the bay.
Sitting on the patio which runs across the front of the house admiring an awesome sunset is an idyllic experience, or on colder evenings sitting with your feet up in front of the Wood Burning Stove.
