Ideally located for a true escape to nature, this outstanding lodge is the perfect base for your Highlands holiday. Sleeping an impressive 20 guests and with two on-site cottages available to rent for extra guests, this property is perfectly suited to a large family reunion or group of friends on a fishing or shooting holiday. The property has limited broadband and mobile signal which is extremely attractive for those looking to leave technology behind and fully unwind. At 13 miles from the nearest town, you can rest assured that you’ll be enjoying the utmost seclusion and privacy.

This incredible lodge is impressive both inside and out, with antique furnishings and traditional country elements giving the home a truly rural feel. You’ll find the walls adorned with mounted deer heads, gothic-style chandeliers and deep patterned rugs in a typical hunting lodge style. This vast home benefits from central heating throughout and multiple roaring wood burners, ensuring that you feel warm and cosy in even the coldest of months.

Enter via a stunning entrance hall, where you’ll find the first warming wood burner. This floor features a spacious kitchen equipped for professional caterers and with a casual dining table for a relaxed snack or breakfast. There’s also a regal dining room with large windows and an impressive dining table for celebratory dinners with the entire family. Two of the property’s bedrooms can be found on this floor, both of which are twin rooms. One of these is a bedroom with increased accessibility.

Head upstairs via the wide staircase to access the sitting room and eight further bedrooms. The lounge is a spacious area with comfy sofas and armchairs facing a second wood burner. The absence of a TV encourages guests to catch up, play the piano or get stuck into a good book. This floor boasts five double rooms and three twins, all of which are decorated with antique furnishings such as wrought iron bedsteads or beautiful dressing tables. Each of these bedrooms boasts an en-suite bathroom, where roll-top bathtubs further this antique style.

This home is set on the extensive 19,000-acre Kildermorie Estate, so there’s an abundance of outdoor space on offer to enjoy. Relax in the lawn directly behind the home and perhaps fire up the gas BBQ on a warmer summer’s evening.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The surrounding countryside boasts a typically Scottish landscape, featuring vast lochs and rugged moors. During your travels, be sure to keep a keen eye out for the local wildlife that you might not see too often in your day-to-day life, including otters, osprey, falcons, and red, roe or sika deer. Wander the winding country road down to Loch Morie, which is about 1 mile away. Permission to fish from either bank or boat is included with the property, so be sure to fish for resident brown trout here. If you visit out of shooting season, you can still practise your shot with a trip to a nearby clay pigeon club, 14.5 miles away.


If golf is your preferred sport, then make your way to local town of Alness (12.5) for a large golf course. Here you can find a local pub for a post-game Scotch, or a fish and chip shop for collecting food and returning home. If Scottish whisky is your drink, then be sure to book a tour and tasting at the local distillery (14 miles).


It's no surprise that this property is ideally suited for those looking for an outdoor break, however it is incidentally also handy for getting to the Scottish city of Inverness by car (31 miles). Here you'll find restaurants, bars and a performing arts centre that are worth visiting before your visit comes to an end.

Myself and a group of friends went here for a joint birthday and honestly that property was outstanding.

A perfect holiday retreat over new year. Quiet, great scenery and friendly housekeepers. Take lots of boardgames or other entertainment as there is no TV and limited internet - but if a week away from it all is what you are after, then this is a great option.

We have just returned from Meall Mor lodge having stayed 3 nights over new year. We were a group of 8 adults and 7 children. The house is fabulous. Very traditional and spacious.

Fantastic bathrooms and heating. Catering equipment also very good. Great to have such a hospitable gamekeeper on site and appreciated the area for shooting clays. Wifi was not available to any useable degree. Suggest this is made clear on the information as we could have downloaded films for our projector at home had we known. It was too late onceRead more we were there when nothing more than e-mails and texts can be downloaded via the estate's satellite system. Also without wifi we should have left the landline number with those looking after livestock for us at home. The landline telephone did not accept 20p or 1 coins. Lovely, in a way, to be offline for Christmas but advance warning is needed. Would also suggest that with accommodation for 20, the lodge needs seating for more than 8 (or a slightly over familiar 10) in the drawing room. A stereo that only plays CDs is of absolutely no use to anyone these days. Again, had we known we could have looked out some old CDs but everyone's car has moved on technology wise so no-one had any with them. Dogs that kept us awake were not ideal. They barked intermittently whenever our dogs were in the kennels. Ours all live outside at least part time at home and loved the heated kennels. In fact they were not at all thrilled when I had to wake them up and move them to car boots and the boot room in the middle of the night to stop the estate dogs barking for the third night. We had given up on the kennels at night and put all ours in the cars by the fourth night. It might be worth moving the guest kennels to the other side of the lodge if this also happens when the under keeper, whose dogs were the ones barking at night, is at home. He was away for our stay so this may not be the case generally. 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.
