About the property

SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS:Luxury House Wester Ross, Remote, Peaceful Location, Down a 1km Private Track, Stunning views overlooking private Loch.

You can fish from the banks of the Loch for native brown trout and you can walk for miles and see nobody.

About Rebecca

With the help of architects and interior designers I wanted to create a luxury retreat, a sanctuary for people like me who love to get away from it all but who want to do so in a luxurious environment with all the benefits of modern technology.

Glasnock House is the ideal getaway for guests looking for peace and tranquillity in a brand new modern home.

Rebecca purchased this house in 2011

Why Rebecca chose Highland

GLASNOCK House is my sanctuary, I wanted to create the feeling of a relaxed but luxurious country home but with all the conveniences of modern life - that's where the underfloor heating, gym, plasma screens and high speed internet comes in!

I love spending time here, far away from my hectic lifestyle and I think this house would appeal to anyone wanting the same from their holiday.

A perfect 'get away from it all' haven of peace and tranquility, perfect for couples or families.

What makes this house unique

There is so much to do in the local area - gorgeous deserted beaches, excellent hiking trails, or fishing and stalking. Otherwise, make the most of the masseuse who lives nearby, or Alison the Chef who will come and cook at home (or deliver delicious home-cooked goodies). You don't even have to leave the serenity of Glasnock if you don't feel inclined!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Glasnock is the most wonderful place to stay and offers an unforgettable taste of the highlands that meets the whole family’s needs. The house is spacious but cosy and offers every gadget that that family could ever need and more. From the kitchen we watched buzzards, herons and ospreys diving for fish in the loch. We canoed, fished and walked and the whole family and the dogs enjoyed Glasnock and all that it offers. The surrounding villages offer ideal cafés and galleries with very friendly staff, Nannys in Shieldaig was our favourite for lunch, and we bought shellfish from the pier in Shieldaig which was fresh and delicious. If you are looking for somewhere on the west coast to stay, Glasnock would be an excellent option. Rebecca and her team make booking and staying so easy, they could not have been any more helpful. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

What an amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Glasnock is a real dream. The house has been so beautifully designed and decorated - definitely feels like a home rather than a holiday rental, so many personal touches. The location is idyllic - on your own loch with the most dramatic mountain views to greet you every morning. The whole Wester Ross area is full of things to see and do, craft, yummy eateries and of course the extensive walking. We'll be back. We loved it.

Perfect, in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We have sought for, and had yet to have success in, finding the "perfect" vacation getaway. Glasnock is it, in so many ways. Peaceful, remote, therapeutic, awe inspiring... We could not have been more pleased with our good fortune of securing a week at this incredibly special place. Highly recommend for anyone that wants to truly escape from the daily grind!! You will not be disappointed. Worth the extra effort to get there. Then you will not want to leave :-)

Fabulous location, beautifully presented property

  • 5 of 5

The scenery all around Glasnock is stunning. There are are jaw dropping views from every direction. The house is tastefully furnished to a very high standard. As well as been elegant and stylish, the house is warm and homely. The owners had thoughtfully provided all the items one might need. There are lots of things to do in the area and our three children has a wonderful time playing in the streams and lochs and on the beaches and hills that surround the property. The provision of very high quality catering by the local chefs at Kishorn Kitchen made the break into a real holiday. We have already booked a return visit!

Breathtaking.....

  • 5 of 5

We really don't want to give it a good review because then you'll all want to go too.....! But, Glasnock really is one of the best places we have ever stayed, stunning, well equipped, beautiful decor, amazing location, perfect for walking, that's if you can tear yourself away from the house, the views and the neighboring stags!

PERFECT. Utter perfection.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Owner's other property, Shepherds Cottage, earlier in the year and vowed to return to the area - this time however to magnificent Glasnock House.

Oh my goodness, nothing disappointed, this place is sublime perfection.

Glasnock oozes luxury on every level, no detail is overlooked - this really is heaven on earth and like stepping into a 5* luxury hotel. It surpassed all expectation.

We tried out the local Chef on the nights we couldn't be bothered cooking, the masseuse visited and we even paid the odd visit to the gym (the floor to ceiling windows and spectacular views inspire!)

The area is stunning, there is so much to do and explore and the house never fails to deliver, so even rainy days were enjoyed by all.

We will certainly be back and heartily recommend.

Thank you for the holiday of a lifetime!!

Wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

A good measure of how a holiday house stacks up is the "chill out" factor and Glasnock has it in spades. Such a warm and beautifully furnished house with a kitchen that was a pleasure to cook in - we felt right at home. A tranquil place from which to explore the highland surrounds. We would love to come back one day.
