He was known for his legal disputes related to his ownership of the Scottish island of Eigg. Shellenberg also stood in the 1964 UK general election in Richmond (Yorks) and the October 1974 UK general election in Moray and Nairn as a Liberal candidate.

Schellenberg competed in the two-man and the four-man Bobsleigh events at the 1956 Winter Olympics.  He also competed in the men’s singles in the luge at the 1964 Winter Olympics.

He also played on the Yorkshire rugby team.

In 1968 he competed in the London to Sydney Marathon in his vintage Bentley sadly retiring when his car toppled off the edge of the road which had subsided under the weight of the car.
