Overview

About the property

Large House, Stags Head dining room, 11 Bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 Games rooms, Wester Ross, Scotland -Surrounded by Beautiful Highlands, Sights and Activities

Glencarron Lodge is the main house on a 11,500 acre estate in a tranquil Highland glen and is the perfect venue for an extended family or group of friends to enjoy Highland activities and each other's company or for corporate entertainment. (Weeks mostly Saturday to Saturday or enquire for short breaks in term-time/ possible late booking/under-occupancy reduction. Our cancellation policy does include refunds in certain circumstances - Please see our full Glencarron & Toad hall Ts and Cs). 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 under 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 friendliest of highland pubs with fresh langoustine and shrimps, cooked to the highest standards.

About Kate Douglas

We have owned Glencarron and Toad Hall in Suffolk for 20-30 years and regularly spend time at each ourselves, initially with our young children and now with our grown up children, so we know they are great houses to enjoy.

Why Kate Douglas chose Inverness

This is a spacious luxurious traditional shooting lodge with stags heads on the walls and roaring fire in the drawing room in an area of outstanding natural beauty with all the Highland activities.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The Highland Lodge lifestyle is a pleasure to experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kate



We had a fabulous time at Glencarron. The houses were warm and comfortable and the weather was fabulous. We are moving on to another area next year but we hope to be back as it’s the best house we have stayed in - and we have been going to Scotland in February since the 1980s.

Best wishes

Phil
