Description

Sitting in the Great Glen, this holiday house is a walker or mountain bikers haven, with direct access onto the legendary Corrieyairack Pass which rises to a height of 2,500 feet.

Built in 1860, this delightful Victorian shooting lodge enjoys great views over the rugged Scottish countryside, with a snow-capped mountain range as its back-drop. The spacious entrance hall has a feature pitch pine staircase, whilst the drawing room and dining room are both impressive traditional lodge rooms. These rooms are ideal for entertaining in a lavish style, with plenty of space and style.

This large holiday home sleeps 15 people in 9 bedrooms, all with shared bathrooms or shower rooms. There is a table tennis table for some light entertainment. To the rear of the property are estate cottages and there is ample parking for the group. This traditionally decorated holiday house is the perfect location for outdoor enthusiasts, from fisher to hiker, who wish to explore the hills and glens of Scotland.

  • Reception Rooms
    The drawing room is to be found at the front of the house, which enjoys open views overlooking the parkland and mountains beyond from the glorious spot at the bay window. This is a large elegant room with comfortable seating in front of the open fire. With a TV and the estate map available here, this is a room to gather in and plan the day ahead or retire to after a glorious day out on the hill. Alternatively within the reception hall, which is decorated with stags heads on the wall, there is a delightful snug area under the feature pitch pine stairs. Here there is a wood-burning stove and a couple of armchairs, so first come first served. For storage of sporting equipment, clothes and boots, there is a cloakroom at the entrance or the former gun room to the rear.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The dining room is also to the front of the house and is equally large and impressive. Similarly there is another bay window to the front and there is superb light coming into this room. Dining can be around one long table and there is plenty of space for all your guests. Along the corridor the kitchen is located. It is a large room and is very traditional for a shooting lodge. There is an AGA and additional electric oven and hobs to cook for large groups. Whilst there is everything you would expect in the kitchen, there is also a very large pantry next door, which houses additional fridges and further storage, so there is plenty of space for all your foodstuffs.

    • 3 Single Bedroom/s With Shared Bathroom
    • 2 Double Bedroom/s With Shared Bathroom
    • 4 Twin Bedroom/s With Shared Bathroom

    The accommodation can all be found on the two floors above and access to them is via the wonderful pitch pine staircase, which then opens out to a gallery. This is very much one of the features of this shooting lodge and there is large volume of space. The bedrooms are a mix of double room, twin rooms and single rooms, all sharing bathroom or shower rooms. The bedrooms are simply furnished, some with wash hand basins within the room, and all with electric heating. The bathrooms are also simply constructed and those with baths have some original deep roll top baths. All these rooms have been presented to a format of a shooting lodge and some of the stunning scenic views from the windows are superb. 

  • Set within an enclosed policy, this fine holiday house, which overlooks the upper stretch of the river Spey is situated on a 35,000 acre private estate. Located 69 miles north of Perth, 5 miles from the village of Laggan, this is the principal house for this Highland estate.

    There is mostly brown trout fishing available on the river, and there are some salmon but not many. There is also the Spey dam and Loch Crunachan which requires a short walk from the roadside. You can drive to within 100 yards of both. There is also Loch Spey and Loch Bhanain, which are at the west end of the estate and they are about an hour/ hour and a half walk from the end of the track. There are a large quantity of very small brown trout in these 2 lochs.  The Spey dam has a 2 rod limit at any one time; additional permits can be purchased - ask office for details. 

    The nearest supermarket can be found in Newtonmore, which is 13 miles away. Here there is a selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. This area is known for the large choice of activities with the nearest being the renowned Wolftrax mountain biking course. Golf courses are available at Newtonmore and Kingussie. For walkers the famous Corrieyairack Pass is a must. Dalwhinnie Distillery is an option for a trip.

Perfect size and remote location. Great to get away from the rat race, settle back and have fun with friends. The wildlife, the views, the hikes and bike trails.....all right on the doorstep. Perfect.

We agree this is a fabulous house, until next time...
