Why a holiday in Scotland is ideal for lovers

Holidaying in Scotland is ideal for lovers – history lovers, dog lovers, whisky lovers, lovers of the great outdoors and lovers of sheer, unadulterated luxury. Whether you choose the majestic scenery of the Cairngorms or the breath-taking vistas of the North-West coast, a stay in one of our luxury lodges will let you relax, recharge your batteries and return to the daily grind refreshed and full of great memories of your time in Scotland. Whatever kind of lover you are, we have a luxury self-catering lodge that’s right for you.

For the history lovers: Lochholly Lodge

Located in the world-renowned Geopark and with stunning views out to the Summer Isles, Lochholly lodge is also in the heart of Castle Country. Head east to the spectacular Skibo Castle with its magical turrets and 12th century architecture, now home to one of the most exclusive clubs in the world with its own whisky, then south towards the spectacular ruins of Urquhart Castle on the picturesque banks of Loch Ness. Boasting 1,000 years of history and surrounded by magnificent natural scenery, this is the Highlands’ most dramatic castle. Finish your day out in Castle Country with the most famous of them all – Balmoral Castle– the Scottish home of the Royal Family surrounded by glorious grounds that are open to the public. Then home again to Lochholly to enjoy those superb coastal views from your very own hot tub.

For dog lovers: all of our lodges

That’s right, every single one of our luxury lodges is available to dog lovers. Why leave your best friend in expensive kennels when you can enjoy fabulous walks in the Highlands together? Three of our properties even have kennels for outdoor dogs. All we ask is that you respect our house rules and the local wildlife and keep your dogs under control at all times.

For lovers of great whisky: Hillview Cottage

For a large group of friends and/or family who love exploring everything the Scottish Highlands has to offer, Hillview Cottage was once part of the Glenlivet distillery and is the perfect place to get together and celebrate your love of the finest whisky in the world. With The Glenlivet distillery and visitor centre virtually on the doorstep, and with the Speyside Malts trail just a few miles away you can sample the delights of Knockando (honey and vanilla notes), Tamdhu (brown sugar and ginger) or the extremely rare Tamnavulin (Christmas pudding and chocolate) while enjoying striking views of the River Spey.

For lovers of the great outdoors: Mountain View Lodge

If you love skiing, cycling, water sports and hiking then Mountain View Lodge is a superb base for pursuing your love of all things outdoors. Just four miles from Loch Insh with its brilliant outdoor centre where you can enjoy sailing and canoeing, 19 miles from the Cairngorm Ski Resort with its challenging pistes and funicular, and just 12 from Aviemore, this fabulous lodge covers all the bases.

If you want to get away from it all with a group of friends to recharge your batteries then this is the place, with long hikes or bike rides along the banks of the River Spey on the Speyside Way. If mountain biking is your thing then there are world class trails and epic adventures to be had in the Cairngorms and no trip to this region is complete without an assault on the summit of Ben Macdui. Then relax those aching limbs with a sauna and hot tub and breathe in those sensational mountain views.

For lovers of indulgent luxury: Stac Polly Lodge

Designed with ultimate comfort and luxury in mind, this five-star reviewed Lodge is the ideal place to get away from it all and relax, refresh and recharge. Bright and spacious with awe-inspiring views and fabulous features like your very own en-suite sauna, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into the pages of an interior design magazine or onto the set of a Hollywood movie. If you’re a lover of pure indulgence then come to Stac Polly to enjoy the ultimate in pampering, and bring your four-legged friends too.
