Overlooking the beautiful Loch Maree lies this marvellous hidden gem of a lodge, accessed only by private boat. It''s peaceful and secluded with just the estate''s wildlife for company.

From the Gairloch road, you can catch a glimpse of this stunning lodge which nestles just a few metres from the northern shore of Loch Maree. The lodge enjoys a truly secluded location surrounded by mountains to the north and is accessible only via the ferry across the loch. A wonderfully isolated location – with chances to spot eagles, deer, otters and badgers – this extensive property offers sumptuous, welcoming and tranquil accommodation for up to 19 guests. A fantastic base for keen walkers, nature lovers, birdwatchers and anglers, this and the three neighbouring estates stretch for miles, offering you plenty of opportunity to make the most of this exceptional area.

This lovely property has been thoughtfully updated and offers a mixture of comfort, charm and character. The main public rooms – including the light and fresh lounge, ornate panelled dining room and the spacious kitchen – have been stylishly furnished. Beautiful features include stunning fireplaces with roaring open fires, examples of taxidermy and a choice of unusual ornaments and artwork. The ten cosy bedrooms offer the perfect space to rest after a wonderful day exploring this remote but romantic region.

On entering this wonderful property, you will find the light and refreshing lounge which features comfortable seating and a warming log fire. This lovely open-plan room is just a step down from the games room which features a snooker table. The centre-piece of the house is surely the atmospheric dining room - with a roaring fire, panelled ceiling and a fine central dining table, this is a perfect space for enjoying a special celebration. The charming farmhouse-style kitchen is fully equipped and a pleasure to cook in, featuring a delightful breakfast table perfect for more informal meals. The ground floor is also home to a cosy library with a selection of books to browse, an open fire, TV and a choice of comfortable seating. The first of the property’s ten bedrooms is also on the ground floor – a bright and restful twin room with WC.

You will also find four delightful double rooms, two inviting twin rooms and a charming single room as well as several bathrooms, shower rooms and a WC. There is also a lovely attic twin room too.

Situated in the heart of the last great wilderness of Scotland, this is a fabulous base for walkers, nature lovers and anglers. There are thousands of acres to explore, and plenty of opportunities for deer stalking, fly fishing or catching wild brown trout. Climbers and hill walkers can explore some wonderful Munros, with Beinn Eighe (13 miles), Slioch (3.5 miles) and the Torridon Hills (18.5 miles) all nearby. Loch Maree is one of Scotland's most beautiful lochs, known for its rare plants, varied wildlife and for the forty or more islands scattered across the surface. The picturesque coastal village of Gairloch (12.5 miles) has a number of independent shops and great places to eat and drink. Gairloch is also home to a fascinating folk museum, some beautiful sandy beaches and a rocky shoreline – occasionally you may glimpse a whale offshore, or the volcanic peaks of Assynt. You will also be close to the famous Inverewe Gardens (18 miles) – a haven of unusual plant and wildlife with opportunities to see red squirrels, red deer, otters, seals, golden eagles and a stunning array of plants and trees including huge Californian redwoods. Other local attractions include the popular Badachro Distillery (13.5 miles) and the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve (7 miles).

The lodge is located in a fabulous location, accessed by a delightful trip by boat across the loch. The gardens of the lodge are beautifully kept and the lodge itself is full of character. Although it is a large building it feels like a welcoming home and even the adults enjoyed participating in a few games of hide and seek. There is a boiler room Read morewhich is perfect for drying off those wet clothes- important in the North West, particularly if you enjoy the stunning outdoors in the area. We did some hill walking, gorge walking, swimming, paddle boarding and had the weather been a little better, we would also have been rock climbing. Just remember midge net and long sleeves. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
