Description

Stay at this wonderful west coast holiday house and enjoy stunning views down the glen over the glistening sea loch and beyond to the Isle of Skye.

This popular holiday home is to be found in the north west of Scotland, situated in its own 5,000 acre estate, with outstanding south facing loch-side views. Built in 1927 as a traditional shooting lodge, the main house accommodated family and friends whilst the rear section was allocated to staff. Today, the whole house is available as a large holiday house, set-up in a comfortable and practical way, making it your home-from home whilst on holiday.

Within you will discover a bright airy hallway with feature pitch pine staircase, with all the main reception rooms leading from here. There are two large sitting rooms, both with wood burning stoves and ideal to split adults in one and children in the other as a games room/sitting room, with folding pool table and table tennis table available. The dining room seats up to 18 people, and is located by a galley kitchen, with the country style kitchen to the rear of the house. All the accommodation can be found on the floors above, with a selection of 10 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, making this ideal to sleep up to 18 people. The expansive grounds are great for adults and children (plus 2 dogs) to relax in, whilst hill climbing can start from the garden. This is a pet friendly holiday house in Scotland that is ideal for family holidays for a week in the summer, and get-togethers and activity-minded breaks away in the quieter months.

  • Reception Rooms
    There are two big sitting rooms to the front of the house, with one being a sitting room proper and the other being a multi-purpose room. The main sitting room, the “Smoking room”, with its wood-burning stove and comfortable leather sofas and armchairs, is perfect for the group to gather and relax before (and after) dinner. The other room, the “Long room” is a sitting room that can be turned into a games room, with a table tennis table and pool table. A wood-burning stove is also available in this room, along with the comfortable sofas and chairs, with the addition of a TV. Whilst there is no TV reception, a TV is provided with a DVD player and DVDs. These rooms are well furnished with the emphasis on practical comfort rather than being grand and precious. You know you are in a classic 1920’s house, but you know it is geared up for the rough and tumble of it being a holiday house. Furthermore after a day out on the hill or touring, it will be a race upstairs to see who gets into the sauna first, to relax even further.

    Kitchen & Dining 
    The kitchen is located to the rear of the house and is in two sections. Firstly there is the breakfast room with dining table that can seat 8 people, and then there is the recently renovated kitchen section, with a well equipped kitchen space, with a 4-oven oil fired AGA and 2-oven electric AGA with ceramic hob. Next door is a large walk-in larder, with the utility room beyond with a washing machine and a chest freezer. Additionally there is a butler’s pantry, with sinks and dishwashers, which leads to the dining room, which is located at the entrance to the house. This is a more formal room with a long dining table that seats 16 - 18 people. An unusual feature in amongst the fine pictures on the wall, are the original controls for the Hydro-Electric power supply which supplied the house when it was built, which have been retained for posterity in situ.

Rated 5 out of 5

I felt it was as good as staying in a very well appointed hotel well north in the highlands, but without the bother of fixed meals and staff getting in the way [the person "on site" was, however, great at being there when needed when we got puzzled on protocols].

The owner will be delighted to hear you liken her property to a well-appointed hotel. Thank you for sparing the time to provide some feedback, it's helpful for future groups to get a feel for the experience they're likely to have. Hopefully, we can tempt you back another time!

I would recommend SCH to anyone. Helping to organise a large family can be like herding cats, so there were quite a few phone calls to SCH, all of which were handled incredibly well, much appreciated. The same professionalism extended to the person on site, who was really helpful.

Really pleased you found our service helpful. It can be quite daunting organising a group holiday so we do try to give as much support as needed. We always think the group booker should get some sort of accoldate for their efforts, as you say organsing multiple families can be like herding cats! When you're ready to face the next group holiday we'd love to help again!
