A wonderful period property for special occasions and social gatherings, surrounded by open countryside and within easy reach of the outdoor attractions of the Scottish Highlands.

This delightful shooting lodge, sleeping 18 guests and two dogs across eleven tranquil bedrooms, is a particularly fine example of a Victorian Scottish house; it’s now a comfortable and stylish holiday let that retains its traditional atmosphere. Set within the large Inverbroom Estate, less than a mile from Loch Broom, this house is perfect for a large family or group of friends who want to enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of modern life in attractive and peaceful surroundings.

The rooms within the property are gracious and elegant with ornate fireplaces and decor that’s sympathetic to the house’s age; lighting and large windows create a bright and airy feel. Rich woods in the floors and furniture make the home welcoming and relaxing for those cosy nights in.

The charming kitchen/diner is a haven for cooks thanks to the three electric ovens; sit and enjoy casual meals at the breakfast table or enjoy sociable dinners in the separate dining room. There’s also a double bedroom on the ground floor. Snuggle up in the lounge in front of the open fire with a book, or challenge someone to a game of billiards in the games room – it’s the ideal hideaway.

Up the winding staircase, a country-style feel has been created in the bedrooms on the first floor using handsome vintage pieces and quaint décor. Relax with sumptuous linens to sink into at the end of the day. Enjoy a long soak in the roll top bath in one of the en-suite king bedrooms; every room benefits from an en-suite shower or bathroom so there won’t be any long queues.

Outside, a pretty enclosed garden is ideal for children and pups to play in, while you look on with an al fresco drink from the garden furniture as the BBQ sizzles away. Wander around the estate, along the gorge and access a beautiful valley where you may spot lambs in the spring.

  • 11 bedrooms - 1 double on the ground floor, 3 king-size and 5 twin rooms on the first floor, 2 single rooms on the second floor
  • 9 bathrooms - 1 ensuite shower room, 1 ensuite with roll top bath and shower, 6 ensuite bathrooms with shower over bath, 1 bathroom with shower over bath, two additional ground floor WC's

The lodge has plenty of activities right on its doorstep. Fly fishing on the River Broom runs from mid-June until the end of September, and the estate has four rods. Fish for salmon or trout on the remote hill lochs around the property. There's also stalking available for one or two rifles from August.


Head up to the fishing port of Ullapool, just 8 miles away, for a bit of retail therapy and a pit stop at a pub before you head out for walking. If golf is more your thing, the picturesque Ullapool Golf Course is set on the shores of Loch Broom. Take a cruise ship to Loch Broom and the Summer Isles from Ullapool Harbour and see what wildlife you can spot.


Enjoy walks whatever your ability further afield but still not far from the property; wander through gentle woodland beside the Black Water River from Silverbridge (23 miles) and Little Garve Bridge (24 miles). Black Water Falls (23 miles) is a sight to behold, with tumbling peaty waters glistening with white plumes. Take in the beautiful scenery around Corrieshalloch Gorge or climb one of the many Munros. Children will enjoy the Highland Museum of Childhood (33.5 miles), which tells the story of childhood in the Highlands in years gone by.

Gorgeous house in beautiful setting ideal for large groups. Sixteen of us had a fabulous week in Inverbroom Lodge. Good weather meant we could take advantage of the lovely garden and outside seating too. You can walk, run and cycle from the house into amazing countryside. Driving for up to an hour takes you to much of the North West of Scotland incRead moreluding beaches of Wester Ross and numerous mountains. The house was lovely to come back to and we had many meals in the newly extended dining room. Hide

We had a fantastic time at innvabroom lodge. Perfect setting to explore the Scottish highlands. House was comfortable and had everything we needed. Our highlight was the boat trip from Ullapool where we were lucky enough to have pods of dolphins swim and play by the side of us.

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.
