Coig na Shee offers bed and breakfast accommodation that we'd want to stay in ourselves. This means getting everything right, and also by paying attention to the smallest detail, such as crisp white bed linen, huge cosy towels, pampering toiletries, leaf and herbal teas, fresh coffee with a cafetière.
Coig na Shee It's impossible to be totally sure of the origins of our name, but - thanks to local lore - here's our best shot. 'Shee' derives from 'sithein', Gaelic for 'fairy hill', and 'Coig' means 'five' or a fifth - an ancient way of dividing up land - Coig na Shee, a ' fifth of a fairy hill'.
Your Hosts Marion and Graeme are the proud owners of Coig na Shee. Marion is originally from Edinburgh, and Graeme from Brisbane, Australia. Returning to Scotland in 2006 after several years downunder, they found and fell in love with Coig na Shee and the highlands.
