Ultimate Scottish Getaway, near Glencoe (303)

Filming took place for the Bond film Skyfall on the small road to the lodge, and any image of Bond, M and an Aston Martin is a great way to get a holiday started.

This 5 star luxury venue, hidden away in the Scottish countryside of Glen Coe and Glen Etive, is a traditional Victorian country house, filled with fine art and fabulous furnishings, offering the ultimate getaway in Scotland on an exclusive use basis. Set-up to accommodate 14 adults within 7 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms, this is a sporting lodge that was originally built in 1884 to entertain guests in the Victorian era and has been refurbished in recent times to entertain in comfort and style for today’s discerning guest.

Tastefully decorated throughout to the highest standard, you will discover a touch of tartan and a touch of the traditional throughout the house, as well as the ubiquitous stag’s heads on the walls. Set in 13,000 acres of estate, surrounded by high hills and with the river Etive nearby, it remains a private setting within its own policies with outstanding views. Access to the walled garden is a delight on sunny days. This is the ideal venue for an upmarket family break or just to gather a group of friends in a stunning environment where the catering is done for you. All bookings include the services of a housekeeper and the services of a professional cook for the duration of your stay, whilst food is charged at cost (with consultation with the cook regarding your requirements).

Living Space

Reception rooms

The large drawing room is such a size that it has two distinctive areas. The main section with an open fire is surrounded by three elegant sofas and additional armchairs close to the bay window which looks across the glen. A telescope is provided to see the stags on the opposite hill. To the rear of the room are further sofas and armchairs and this provides secondary seating for a large group or an area where cards can be played. Out in the main hall, there is a large reception area, with a snug area for quieter reflection and a central area with two large sofas in front of another open fire, making this the meeting place for guests to discuss the day ahead. A boot room and a drying room are available for storage and drying clothes. Up on the second floor, there is a large landing space which has comfortable seating around a TV, which is ideal for younger members of the group. Whilst there is no TV reception, a DVD player and a selection of DVDs are available. Beyond is a library, which houses a selection of books, board games and Scalextrics tracks and vehicles.

Kitchen / Dining

The dining room is equally as large as the drawing room and similarly in two distinct areas. The main section houses the impressive dining table that can seat up to 14 adults and is a fine traditional dining area, which is superb for dining in style. Then there is an area where a breakfast table can seat up to 6 people, which is perfect if your group is smaller or if breakfasts are being staggered. In the large modern kitchen, there is a work-island with seating for 4 people on bar stools or there is an additional table and benches to seat 6 people for simple suppers or cosy breakfasts. The kitchen itself is fitted with Gaggenau products, an instant hot tap, and is the domain of the cook that is provided with the booking, where guests are welcome at all times. Like most shooting lodges, there are larders, pantries and plenty of freezers for storage of food.

Grounds & Surrounds

Set within approximately 50 acres of enclosed private grounds with further screening at the road side, which is a good distance away from the house, access is via the short drive that takes you down to the country house. The estate itself is 13,000 acres and includes many mountains, the river Etive and access onto Loch Etive. The estate has a number of boats to hire (with a boatman) for use on Loch Etive. You could try your hand at fishing for trout and mackerel from one of the smaller solid hull motor boats. The more adventurous might prefer an exhilarating ride down the loch on the 150 horse-power Ribeye 650 motor boat, perhaps stopping for a barbeque or picnic on one of the loch beaches. There is a walled garden and croquet can be played in the summer months on the lawn. Salmon river fishing, clay pigeon shooting and stalking can be arranged on the estate.

The house is perfectly positioned to explore and walk in the hills in the Glen Coe or Glen Etive area. Due to the geography of the region it is known as the “outdoor capital of the Highlands”, and it has become a huge hit for mountain bikers, climbers, canoeists and walkers. The estate can arrange for guided hill walking, kayaking excursions, photography tuition and photo safaris. Fort William and Oban have many shops and restaurants, as well as the Ben Nevis Distillery and for golfers there are a selection of local golf courses.

Why not visit the magnificent volcanic rock island of Staffa, where the puffins make their summer home? Or join the Beaver Trail to spot the elusive mammal recently reintroduced to the area. You could also take in the Gulf of Corryvreckan on the island at Jura, the third largest natural whirlpool in the world! Island hopping tours are a great way to discover the isles of Argyll, and for keen walkers, the mountainous landscapes of the likes of Ardgour, and the westerly range of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park are well worth a visit. Towns to take in include Oban, a resort town nestled on the Firth of Lorn; Dunoon, home to the famous Cowal Highland Gathering, an annual highland games; and Campbeltown, the county’s historic centre for whisky, fishing and ship-building.
