Our Ponies

Highland ponies are a unique pony bred to live and work in the rugged Highland landscape. The Campbell family have been breeding ponies in Glenshiel for over 100 years and some of our ponies are direct descendants.

The Highland pony is well known for their kind nature and ability to take their riders across some very rough terrain.

They are ideal for pony trekking in the Highlands and kind to the environment too.

We have bed and breakfast accommodation nearby with two double and two twin rooms, and two extra beds available for children. All rooms have a television, there is a breakfast room, and washing and drying facilities are available. Our rooms offer fantastic value from £30 per person, with breakfast also available.

Bunkhouse accommodation with satellite TV from £20 - 25 per person per night, depending upon season. Price includes bed linen.

With the Five Sisters of Kintail in the background, our treks allow you to enjoy the fantastic scenery from around Shiel Bridge
