Meall Mor Lodge is an outstanding large holiday house set within the 19,000 acre Kildermorie Estate. Lying above a bend of the River Alness close to Loch Morie, guests will be able to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life in a secluded and tranquil setting. The lodge is within easy driving distance of Inverness, which offers extensive recreational facilities and amenities. Whilst the lodge is sure to play host to a memorable holiday break enjoyed with family or friends, it is equally ideal for sporting parties or corporate entertaining.

The well proportioned house offers first rate self catering accommodation and has been beautifully decorated and furnished with period furniture to ensure that guests enjoy a most comfortable stay in magnificent surroundings. Central heating throughout and roaring log fires in the reception and drawing rooms ensure a warm stay all year round, with the fires creating a focal point to relax around on a cold winter’s evening. Wi-Fi internet access is available.

All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and are unique in design, with one bedroom suitable for disabled guests. With an abundant supply of hot water, guests can unwind after a busy day outdoors. A cottage with complete facilities is also available and sleeps two adults and two children and a second self-contained cottage sleeps two adults.

The lodge is in an excellent position for exploring the surrounding estate – home to a variety of wildlife including pine martens, otters, osprey, falcons, eagles and owls, as well as red, roe and sika deer. Guests can take in the rugged surroundings of the heather covered hills and moors and included within the rental price is fishing on the six lochs from boat or bank as well as bank fishing/wading on one mile of salmon river average 52 salmon and grilse per annum.

    Meall Mor Lodge reviews
    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. We had everything we needed and received a warm welcome and excellent service from Michel and Hani on site. Nothing was too much trouble. The road would not be the best in the snow but otherwise it was fine.
    Mrs Tough - December 2018
    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 once 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.
    Miss Parsons - December 2018
    A great, wonderful and peaceful place to relax. Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life then definitely the right place to get away to! Wi-fi was a bit of an issue but wouldn’t really consider it a major factor.
    Mrs Patel - April 2018
    The best lodge in a beautiful setting! All beautifully furnished, Kate and Mike the housekeepers couldn't have been any nicer, Thank you thank you... will definitely be back!! Amazing place
    Owners Response: "The whole length of the private road all the way to the western end of the glen ( 14.5 km ) is in the course of being completely resurfaced and should be finished .... weather permitting ..... by Easter."
    Miss Kenley - January 2018
    This secluded haven is a good trek off the main road, and if you so wish you can leave the toil and stress of living in the present world at that point. We took Meall Mor Lodge on Kildermorie to celebrate a significant milestone with a large group of friends and it exceeded all of our expectations in all respects, so I'll break this review down in to sections. 1. Location - as mentioned, this lodge is well off the beaten track, tucked away behind the hills in a glen of utter tranquillity. First time driving in took us about 30 minutes from the main road, just so we made sure not to take a wrong turn, and subsequent (but very few) trips in/out to the main road would take about 20 minutes owing to it being single track and a little choppy in places. That said, the location then affords you to retreat in to a different world, a world that is truly splendid framed by stunning hills and mountains, sparkling clear waters in the loughs and the sounds of water cascading over rocks in the rivers and the call of various forms of wildlife. It is truly a place where you can forget the rest of the world exists. 2. Facilities - this place is remote and nestles between mountains, so be prepared to sacrifice mobile phone signal for the duration but if it's that important to you then be prepared to drive to the main road in order to obtain a signal - we all saw this as a blessing! Emergencies may arise and as such there is a payphone booth located in the lodge itself. There is no television, another godsend - with so much to do there is/was no need for this contraption to invade the peace and tranquillity. One concession is that there is wi-fi in the Lodge if you must check email (boo!). The heating and water supply in the Lodge cannot be faulted, all rooms are en-suite and all could have full baths or flowing showers with no shortage of hot water - it puts hotels to shame. Every morning the housekeeper (same lady who would clean your bathrooms etc every day) would clean out the fireplaces, re-set them, and replenish the stock of dry logs; sitting by a crackling fire with a dram in hand is a wonderful way to end a day. A truly huge, catering style, kitchen is located on the ground floor with appliances to enable a full house to be catered for properly, and off the kitchen is a pantry with two massive fridges to sleep provisions and champagne suitably chilled, at the other end of the kitchen a small connecting room leads to a rather splendid dinning room bedecked with rich and historic tapestry. As the main kitchen is on the ground floor and the sitting room/entertainment area is on the first floor the owners have very thoughtfully placed a small wet bar area at the end of the sitting room complete with small fridge - this enables you to have drinks etc readily to hand rather than run up/down stairs which may become challenging as the night progresses. 3. Activities - this is a sporting estate and therefore shooting and fishing are plentiful and the estate will go to considerable lengths to ensure that your needs are met. Being out of season for shooting most living things we opted for a morning of clay pigeon shooting and rifle shooting at a target as a bit of fun - it was a great excuse to leave the comfort of the Lodge and have a bit of fresh air with laughter thrown in. Although early in the season we did have some successful trout fishing and the colouring of the fish was stunning, the waters being peaty but of exceptional quality. Another type of shooting that is a tad more quiet than the shotgun or rifle is of the photographic type - this locations lends itself to mazing opportunity for some spectacular photography or indeed sketching and painting if the mood takes you. We walked for miles along tracks and trails, some ascending over 1500 feet in elevation, along which you will certainly see a wide variety of wildlife be it Red Deer, game birds etc. all encapsulated within stunning views. Should the weather prove to be such that you don't want to venture out (no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing) then there is a charming piano in the sitting room and an abundance of board games and jigsaw puzzles - not a computer game in sight, HURRAH!! 4. Support - the staff on the estate, all of them, are unbelievably helpful and professional - it's how things were done in a different era and it's how things are done here - properly. From recommending a caterer to providing ideas on activities to do, the best places to watch the deer, fish etc, etc, the entire team is focused upon you and your guests having a time to remember and nothing was ever too much trouble. If you've managed to read this far you should by now have got the idea that this place is heaven - it truly is. Yes the road in can be a challenge for a sports car, but like most things in life when you travel that road the end result is more than worth it - Kildermorie is just that.

    House excellent- only problem was the road which had a lot of potholes and some of the cars 'grounded' Owner is aware and said they are going to sort it out.
