Description

Edwardian properties are known for their simple design, spacious rooms with high ceilings and ornate hand crafted features. This property, built on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park, reflects the character of the era with fabulous wood panelled rooms, wide open hallways and generously proportioned rooms.

A former shooting lodge at the end of Glenshee, set in its own fenced policies, this home was designed to cater for larger house parties, making it ideal for group and family gatherings of up to 21.

The adjoining Cairngorm National park covers an area of just over 4.5 thousand square kilometres and is a popular destination for walkers, wildlife and outdoor activities, including seasonal skiing.  Adjacent Strathmore is home to many top class golf courses. Trout fishing, together with the use of 2 boats is yards from the door, and salmon fishing is available on the estates own River Blackwater, as well as the nearby Rivers Ericht, Isla  and Tay. 
Glamis, Blair Atholl and Balmoral Castles are all a drive away. Edinburgh Airport is just over an hour, Perth and Dundee are less than an hour.  

Well behaved dogs are welcome, but not in the house. Kennels are provided.

It’s a perfect space for house guests to enjoy a few Scottish reels at the end of the evening with the furniture moved to the edge of the room.

It is only available on request in advance at the owners discretion depending on the circumstances. It is not to the standard of the main bedrooms but is perfectly clean and comfortable for staff use.  If you are interested in using this room please ask at the point of booking. 


  • The house is set in its own 1500 acre estate and working farm in the Perthshire Hills. Guests are welcome to wander where they will within the constraints of farming activities, keeping dogs on leads or under CLOSE control, and leaving gates as they are found.

    The landscaped grounds are a mix of lawns, borders and shrubs. There is a tennis court (please bring your own racquets and balls). There is plenty of parking space at the front and rear.

    GROUP TYPES

    Due to prior bad experience this property will not accept bookings from single sexed groups whose sole purpose for the holiday is to celebrate a ‘stag/hen’ style get together/party. Any booking made where the purpose of the holiday is later found to fall into this category, will be cancelled without notice, or refund.

    Wedding | Corporate Bookings
    If you wish to book this property for a non standard stay additional fees may apply, it is recommended that you visit the lodge in advance to take advantage of the experience gained over the years in terms of catering, marquees, overflow accommodation, transport etc.
