Glenuaig Lodge offers the opportunity to get away from it all and totally be at one with nature and no other habitation for miles in all directions. Whilst unassuming in appearance, this beautifully presented lodge offers a high standard of self-catering in a simply spectacular setting providing everything you could hope for from a Highland retreat.
Appearing tiny nestling amongst an isolated wilderness, Glenuaig Lodge is actually generous in size sleeping eight to ten guests in four bedrooms (plus a sofa bed in the second sitting room) with a spacious dining kitchen with log burner, separate dining room (with views to die for!), two additional reception rooms and two bath/shower rooms.
Surrounded by stunning Highland scenery as far as the eye can see, Glenuaig Lodge is only an hour from Inverness plus a spectacular thirty minute drive into the hills, and is easy to reach from Aberdeen and Edinburgh. Imagine celebrating Christmas here or simply getting away with friends or family for total uninterrupted quality time together (please note: a four wheel drive vehicle is required to access the lodge - one can be hired locally).
Highland holidays don’t get much better than at Glenuaig Lodge. The drive in to the Lodge is an adventure in itself with deer often criss-crossing the track. The lodge sits on a Scottish estate within easy driving distance of Achnasheen with its quaint station and pub/hotel. It is also close to Lochcarron where there are other bars and restaurants, a mini-market, post office, petrol station and medical centre; but you don’t come to the Highlands to shop (unless you want tartan - Lochcarron produces top quality fabric and Lochcarron Weavers is a must-visit), you come to enjoy the breathtaking landscape, pure air and clear loch waters. You come to shed your cares and spend time enjoying yourself walking in the wilderness with friends.
Drive to the foot of Bheinn Fionn (a challenging climb that will reward with amazing views at the top) and the charming village of Achnasheen. Known as the Gateway to Wester Ross, Achnasheen is also accessible by train on the line between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh. The seaside village of Applecross is a scenic drive of less than an hour from Glenuaig Lodge, and a great place for a fresh seafood lunch, as is picturesque Plockton with a choice of pubs, restaurant and sea trips. Alternatively, why not take a day trip to the Isle of Skye, the beaches of the West Coast, Inverness or Dingwall?
The Glencarron Estate has 12,000 acres of natural playground. Salmon and sea trout are plentiful in season and you can fly fish either on the estate’s loch or the River Carron. Clay pigeon shooting, deer stalking with camera or gun (a great way to experience the beauty of the Highlands up close), nature walks, mountain biking and road cycling, walking and, naturally, golf are all within easy reach, and the estate can arrange for a local stalker or ghillie to help you make the most of your time. Keen walkers will like that there are 12 Munros (peaks above 3,000 feet) within eight miles, four of which are accessed from the estate.
You could easily lose your heart to the beauty of the Scottish Highlands, especially when you stay in a place as welcoming as Glenuaig Lodge.

Glenuaig Lodge is a traditional Scottish Highland Victorian shooting lodge. The owners have modernised the lodge to provide a high standard of comfort throughout. Accessed via a country track (four wheel drive required - local hire is available), Glenuaig Lodge sits in a haven of wildlife amongst the mountains where you will see red deer and at times eagles soaring up above.
Outside: Guests have 12,000 acres to enjoy! Plenty of space for dogs but please bear in mind there is not a fenced garden area.
Additional information: Totally self-contained with no neighbours for several miles, the lodge provides a true escape away from it all. Cooking is via Propane Gas and the lodge has its own renewable energy supply (a generator is provided incase a back up is required) as well as log burners to keep it cosy in all weathers (hydro-electricity, logs, coal and bed linen are included in the price). Diesel is charged at cost price should it be necessary to use it. Up to three well behaved dogs are welcome through prior agreement with the owner. Short breaks (3 night minimum) are possible out of school holidays or at short notice during school holidays if available. Friday is the normal changeover day - please speak to the owner if another day is required. Catering can be arranged through a recommended agency.
