The Ultimate Activity stay for Stags, Hens or those just looking for a fun break. If you are looking for a unique and memorable break we can arrange an all inclusive Activity Break. We work very closely with local Activity providers, popular activities include Archery, Quad Bike Tours, Mini Highland Games, Falconry and Clay Pigeon Shooting, we can even arrange outdoor Sumo wrestling! Muddy wheels, mucky boots & dirty paws are very welcome. Unusually for a working farm, Shielbrae are happy to take dogs, but there are a few sensible house rules that must be agreed to in advance e.g. pets must not be left alone in the house unsupervised and that if you do return with muddy paws & boots you clean them off outside.
Shielbrae is available to rent on a weekly basis and also for weekends and midweek stays.Initial rates are for up to 10 persons sharing, for additional persons there is a reasonable per person rate.
