This modern lodge is jam packed with style and comfort and enjoys a seafront location on a secluded bay

This exciting Scottish gem is a luxury property sitting in a private, secluded location on the shores of Rascarrel Bay. Relax and switch off from everyday life on your own decked balcony complete with hot tub, where you can soak in the fine, Highland air and then retire to the beautiful rooms inside the lodge.

The property is one of four lodges and sits in an elevated position on the bank of the bay. Its architecture is stunningly designed to make the most of the light, views, and sloping coastline. The decor is contemporary and chic, with calming colours and details that will make your stay feel super indulgent.

Head into the lodge to find yourself in the spacious open-plan living space, a delightfully light and inviting room combining kitchen, dining area and lounge. The lounge is relaxing and cosy, with vast windows and French doors opening out onto the balcony, bringing the coastal landscape right into the room with you. The kitchen is a smart space, with a neighbouring dining table where you can enjoy romantic meals together. Head through into your bedroom, a luxurious space with sumptuous king-size bed, relaxing natural decor, and an en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower and a double handbasin.

You can head out from the bedroom straight onto the decked balcony, on which sits your special treat, the hot tub. Soak in the fresh air, stargaze in the clear night sky, or simply listen to the sounds of the waves breaking in the bay.

  • 1 king-size bedroom with TV with freeview and ipod docking station
  • Large en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower, double handbasins and W/C 
  • Gas oven and hob, fridge/ freezer, microwave, dishwasher and wine cooler
  • Washing machine and tumble dryer in separate utility room
  • Hot tub
  • Electric and central heating included
  • Wi-Fi included 
  • Parking outside of lodge
  • Waste bin is to rear of the property 
  • Regret no dogs
  • Regret this property is not suitable for children over 6 months
  • Please note, the hot tub will be drained early on the morning of departure
  • Beach on site, basic shop/post office 2 miles. Larger shops, pubs, restaurants 8 miles
  • Arrival: 5pm.

The area around the lodge is a feast for adventurers and relaxation-seekers alike. Head off for a scenic stroll along the Solway Firth beginning at your very own Rascarrel Bay. There are walks to enjoy on the estate surrounding the property, or make your own trail along the winding coastline.

Head on a day trip to Colvend, 16.5 miles away, where you'll find a lovely golf course for a leisurely round nestled beside the coast, the Bainloch Deer Park where you can spy on these amazing local creatures, or discover the Mote of Mark, an ancient hillfort with a mysterious and spooky history.

To pick up some supplies or enjoy a meal out, head to the rural village of Auchencairn. It's a lovely 3-mile walk away. Or for more town life, head to Castle Douglas, 11 miles inland. Castle Douglas is a pretty place to roam and take in the unique culture of Dumfries and Galloway. Visit Threave Castle, which sits on a grassy island within a loop of the River Dee. It is home to a family of peregrine falcons which nest on its ruined roof.

This property is personally managed by Nicola.

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.
