Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us staying at The Clipping Shed, the property was really clean, tidy and comfortable. We have been quite a few times to stay at the other properties at Tom of Lude and hope to return.

Clipping shed

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the Lude cottages. Well equipped with everything we needed and was very clean and well kept (although the doors to the bedrooms were a bit squeaky so trying not to wake the children was a challenge!)

View over the hills was stunning and a great outdoor space for our 3 year old to run about safely. Loved saying hello to the sheep and cows in the fields just outside the door 😀

Would highly recommend these cottages.

Location

From the Owner

Andrew inherited the estate and properties 40 years ago. We were anxious to include diversification into our farm plan, thereby bringing in visitors from far afield or close at hand. The area lends itself to tourism which combines very well with the workings of our farm. We hope that the experience of coming to stay at the Tom of Lude not only offers a welcome break but also an insight into the workings of a small livestock farm in the heart of the highlands.

Facilities

From the Owner

The Tom of Lude Steadings boast the very best views on the estate. We decided that the buildings were wasted for subsidiary farm use and so conversion into holiday cottages seemed to be the obvious answer. The cottages are remote, and yet only a mile away from the village and amenities, and we felt that this idyllic spot would provide an ideal place for a holiday for all ages and stages.
