10am - 5pm
In the Highlands, communities gathered together and traveled as a group to the sheiling. Certainly, all the Bealtaine customs to protect the home, kin, and animals would have been completed before the move to the sheiling or booley took place. In some communities, the fire rituals were done at Midsummer, instead.

Everything within my dwelling or in my possession,
All kine and crops, all flocks and corn,
To Samhain Eve from Beltaine Eve,
With goodly progress and gentle blessing,
From sea to sea, and every river mouth,
From wave to wave, and base of waterfall.
(Carmina, #73)
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.
