Arriving at Cape Wrath is a wonderful experience in itself, made even better by knowing you are staying at one of the finest exclusive self-catering holiday houses in Scotland.

This stylish large holiday home with Visit Scotland 5 star rating was formerly a renowned hotel famous for its sporting clientele, in recent years has been completely refurbished and is now a luxury retreat. Situated in the North West of Scotland, this south facing lodge with an open aspect has some of the finest views over spectacular scenery overlooking the natural beauty of the Kyle of Durness. If that was not enough, inside there is a cinema room, a treatment room and a massive games room with full size snooker table.

Set within 2 acres of grounds, which mainly consist of lawn it is situated near to the Cape Wrath passenger ferry, with a bay to the front where sea otters and seals can be seen on a daily basis. Please note that weddings can only be for the capacity of the house’s accommodation only.

This is an ideal holiday house for family holidays, as well as those with an interest in activities, including golf or walking. Whilst it is a long drive to the top of Scotland – you will find that once you are here, you will never want to leave.

  • Reception Rooms
    On entering the entrance hall you are greeted by an array of taxidermy within a lovely wooden panelled room, which sets the tone for the rest of the lodge. Turning left takes you into a long wooden panelled room flanked by picture windows allowing the magnificent scenery to be part of this sitting room, with a selection of sofas, comfortable chairs around various coffee tables.

    The dining area is next, which then leads to the former bar area, where the original bar is still in place with wood-burning stove and comfortable chairs. This is a wonderful room to relax and have a drink in impressive comfort and style.

    Snug, Games & Treatment Rooms
    The “cinema room” has a large flat screen TV with big sofas to watch it from. A smaller TV room is suitable for children with board games and books available. Then to the rear of the building is a large games room, with one section housing a full size billiard table and the other section with comfortable seating. Both sections have large picture windows to the front.  Finally there is a sauna (capacity 6/8 people) and a treatment room available.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The kitchen is located at the rear of the building and is a converted commercial kitchen that is now adapted to normal residential usage. In fact it has been designed with sleek lines and in a trendy way continuing to use the relatively small space to be a lovely kitchen to be in with a few friends. With many gas hobs and integral double ovens, the cooking capacity of this room could be double the advertised occupancy. Bar stools at the work-island allow others to join the cook and chat. Further larder space is next door and commercial freezers.

    The dining room is located at the front of the lodge and has one of the best views from any dining room in Scotland. Huge picture windows to the front overlook the sea loch and mountains beyond and regardless of the weather will always be an atmospheric view. The dining table can seat up to 20 people and with the antler chandeliers and antler theme throughout you will always know you are in the Highlands of Scotland.

Rated 5 out of 5

The house is truly beautiful and the views are out of this world, an absolutely blissful week!

Totally agree, the views are second to none in this part of Scotland! So pleased to hear you had a blissful holiday at this beautiful holiday lodge.

The service from Scotts Castle Holidays was absolutely first class. We had all the information regarding directions, contacts and conditions of use and everything was streamlined, from start to finish. We will definitely use this company again.

Wow, thanks so much for your excellent comments! We strive to provide all of our customers with a first class service, so its certainly good to hear! We would be delighted to help again and look forward to hearing from you ... don't forget a loyalty discount awaits you next time :)
