At the top end of loch Shin the Overscraig is an anglers hotel and the only 'watering hole' for miles around. I recall falling into a submerged peat cut while wading loch Shin, chilled to the bone I retired to the hotel bar and after some local anti freeze (malt, doubles) and a good steak I was fighting fit. A great place to stay while exploring Shin and the adjacent lochs.

It was nearly 30 years ago when I fell in and I still cherish the warm memories of Overscraig. I hope the breakfast is still as hearty as it was then.
