Overview

About the property

House in Strathcarron, Wester Ross, Scottish Highlands, Scotland - Surrounded by Most Beautiful Highland Scenery With Lots of Sights and Activities in the Area

Glencarron Lodge is the main house on a 12,000 acre estate in a tranquil Highland glen and is the perfect venue for an extended family or groups of friends to enjoy Highland activities and each other's company or for corporate entertainment. (prices from £1660 per week - enquire for short breaks in term-time/ underoccupancy reduction) Cocktails in the drawing room, convivial meals at the large dining table, all after a day clay pigeon shooting, walking, fishing, boating, stalking, sightseeing with bucket and spade on the beach, holding a ping pong tournament in the basement or just enjoying the romance of the Highlands. Glencarron Lodge is in the West Highlands one hour's drive due west of Inverness and is centrally located for sightseeing in much of the highlands, from fairytale castles and the Isle of Skye to the most idyllic fishing villages viewed on descending the highest mountain roads in Britain. The sandy beaches on the west coast are among the most beautiful in the world with vast sand dunes and rocky pools. And scattered throughout are the quaintest of highland pubs with fresh langoustine and shrimps, often cooked to London standards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Some visitors who spent a long winter's weekend at Glencarron Lodge wrote, "The Lodge is wonderful and the location far more beautiful than we had anticipated. The whole weekend went so well - the clays shooting and walking ... was a perfect combination. The remote lodge where we stopped to have our lunch was very romantic and beautiful - what a stunning house it would make [now fully renovated]! All in all it is a weekend we will never forget - it really was very special indeed. We feel very fortunate to have found Glencarron and you have been so helpful and kind with all your suggestions."
