Staying at Corrour Lodge, this stunning contemporary Scottish lodge, is to experience a sanctuary of luxury and comfort in the wilds of the Scottish highlands. Designed by acclaimed Boston architect Moshe Safdie and completed in 2003, the lodge is at the heart of a family owned 60,000 acre estate and is a true Highland wilderness. The lodge and it’s environs never fail to impress anyone lucky enough to experience it first-hand. You can hire Corrour Lodge, for exclusive use, and it’s magnificent gardens which combine 21st century luxury with the traditional feel of a highland estate. There are also a number of other estate cottages available for rental.
Tucked away on a vast Estate (the size of Los Angeles!) in the Scottish Highlands this fascinating example of a contemporary Scottish lodge is surrounded by 57,000 acres of spectacular hills, moors, glens and lochs. It is a natural wilderness with breath taking scenery. Only 90 minutes from Inverness airport, or arrive at the estate’s private train station by overnight sleeper from Euston, and take the 11 mile drive to the castle. Country Life magazine described the nearest railway station as “The most romantic place to get off a train in Britain”.
When you stay in this fine, contemporary Scottish lodge you will find that it features a games room and snooker table as well as a state of the art sound system and communications technology. There is a sauna that looks out over the loch, where you can also take a dip or fish for wild brown trout. Walkers will appreciate the abundance of ‘Munro’s’ – mountains at least 3,000 feet high, and all the other opportunities to bag a ‘Corbett’ or ‘Graham’.
Pony trekking on Icelandic ponies, mountain biking, clay pigeon shooting and stalking are all available on the estate. Further afield you are ideally placed for visits to the Isle of Skye, Loch Ness and the many local Whisky Distilleries. Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest mountain, is close by.
