Mr Robert Louis Stevenson was very fond of this quotation, which appeals so truly to Caledonia's sons and daughters. He found it in an old volume of Good Words, and never knew its source. Like many other people he quoted it incorrectly. According to our sources, the lines stand thus in the original--

From the lone sheiling on the misty island
Mountains divide us and a waste of seas,
Yet still the blood is strong, the heart is Highland,
And we in dreams behold the Hebrides.

Ella's Café
At the heart of The Sheiling you'll find Ella's Café providing a warm and welcoming area to meet, relax and chat when you visit us.

Visit Ella's Café and enjoy a homemade flatbread with chick pea felafels and date chutney, or try some Skye bacon with rowan and apple jelly served in homemade focaccia bread.

The menu also includes filled multi seed rolls, freshly made soup and daily specials.

We have a range of loose leaf tea and fairtrade coffee for you to enjoy with a piece of cake. Ella's selection of homebaking includes Banana-Chocolate-Nut Cake, Ecclefechan Tart, Carrot Cake and Peach and Hazelnut Tartlet.

The food is freshly made on the premises, using lots of Skye and Highland produce, including delicious Isle of Mull artisan cheeses and our own croft grown salad leaves.
