SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS:Luxury House Wester Ross, Remote, Peaceful Location, Down a 1km Private Track, Stunning views overlooking private Loch.
Glasnock House occupies one of the most unique and stunning locations in the West Highlands. For anyone looking to escape from their busy lives to a place of complete tranquility but at the same time enjoy the ultimate luxuries of a 5 star property, Glasnock offers the best of the best.
You can fish from the banks of the Loch for native brown trout and you can walk for miles and see nobody. For walkers, photographers, artists, wildlife watchers or for those who like activities of a more energetic or sporting nature, there are ample opportunities for fishing, sailing, kayaking, climbing & golf (at nearby Lochcarron).
The house is highly luxurious including everything from 65 inch Smart TVs to a fully equipped Gym, the highest quality Egyptian cotton bed linen and everything you could expect from a 5* property, and more. Glasnock has to be experienced to be believed!

About the Owner
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.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for sharing your beautiful house!
We had such a nice tand relaxing time up here.
5 based on 7 holidaymaker reviews
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.
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!!
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.

We spent a week at Glasnock in January and it was heaven. The location on the Lochcarron estate was quintessential highlands with snow, wild deer & unbeatable scenery.
The house is equivalent to staying in a 5 star hotel, with every possible appliance, a new immaculate kitchen and real attention to detail. We will certainly be going back and would recommend visiting to anyone with a family.
The help & effort put in by the owner & staff were also as you would expect from such a beautiful house & location.
Glasnock, a truly wonderful experience
Me, my husband and our dog Jai spent 2 weeks holiday at Glasnock in October this year (2013), and it was quite simply our best self-catering experience ever.
The beautifully designed house provisioned everything that anyone could ever need, and exuded quality. It was immaculate and as we explored we were so happy to discover that the photographs were true to life ... all of the rooms were beautifully furnished with many thoughtful touches, not least the welcome hamper. The bathrooms were particularly luxurious, and I loved the large kitchen, a real heart of the home. We felt instantly at home and completely relaxed. For Jai, the well-fenced garden was also perfect.
The views from all of Glasnock's windows were captivating as the surrounding landscape is absolutely stunning and on those days that we stayed at home, watching the wildlife and the mountains change their colour throughout the day was fantastic, especially for an amateur photographer like me. Imagine been able to photograph a stag through the window! For anyone that needs to keep in touch with the office on a regular basis like my husband, the high speed broadband and a full 5 bar mobile phone signal were a real bonus too.
Whilst Glasnock benefits from being extremely private, it is only a short and very scenic drive to the nearby villages of Kishorn and Lochcarron where we stocked up on food provisions. We were also able to buy fresh lobster and langoustines, cooking themselves and enjoying them together with a bottle of champagne. We opted not to go out in the evening but after dinner sat on the comfy sofa and watched the big screen TV! Home from home!
I think perhaps I should have used the well equipped gym to burn a few calories but instead preferred to walk Jai in the immediate location and took much pleasure in just absorbing the tranquillity and sheer beauty of the area. In fact we also did a great deal of exploring by car, with I think, the highlight being the coastal route around the Applecross peninsula. Every bend or turn revealed a new spectacular vista. Applecross Inn is also a must.
For the first time ever, neither of us wanted to return home. Glasnock not only fulfilled our expectations, it exceeded them. We would recommend this holiday rental wholeheartedly and in fact we have already re-booked to return in spring 2014. We can't wait.
A stunning property with every creature comfort you would need. The location is spectacular and is perfect for exploring Western Ross and beyond. We spent only a week here but intend to return again next year. From booking to leaving Rebecca the owner looked after our every need. Can't recommend highly enough whether for a romantic break or to share with friends or family.
From the Owner
“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.”

From the Owner
“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!”
