  • "Rionnag Lodge was beautiful to stay in for the week."

    The house had everything we needed and the lovely hamper and Prosecco was very much appreciated. The house was spotlessly clean, lovely furnishings and has magnificent views. We met Terry a few times and he was lovely, very friendly and welcoming. The fish was delicious as well - thank you! The surrounding area is lovely, pebble and sandy beaches around, lovely lighthouse, great little shops in the village a short drive away and everyone we met was very friendly! The Farmshop, Info centre and cafe and the museum were all great. We’d love to go back after Easter another year to take advantage of the kayaking, horse riding and boat trips on offer but we got an amazing week this year with exceptional weather and a very laid back atmosphere in the village. Thanks very much for our holiday, we’d absolutely recommend!

    Exceptional standard of accommodation accompanied by amazing quality and comfort throughout. Everything we needed was right there with a to die for view that was extremely hard to leave! The owner Terry was an absolute gem at making sure we were made very welcome and supplied us with the most amazing seafood ever! A truly wonderful experience in a fantastic location and one we would most definitely repeat! Rionnag means star in Gaelic, therefore we easily give our stay 5 Rionnags! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "This is a truly stunning location, a beautiful property with an ever changing view."

    The property is faultless and has been equipped with absolutely everything you could think of. The welcome hamper and Prosecco on arrival was a lovely surprise. The location is extremely quiet, which is exactly what we were looking for. It’s a 5 minute walk to the local pebbly beach but, if you continue for a mile you will find your own stunning sandy cove. A beautiful remote location with stunning panoramic views from the property, the hot tub was a great addition too. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

    The house was spotless, has great facilities and is very well equipped. This was only enhanced by the friendliness of the hosts. The area is fairly remote but we knew that. Not a problem for us as the turn of every corner produced a "Wow! Look at that". We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

    Very clean, well maintained and equipped with everything you could need, (with the exception of a manual can opener!) Beautiful beach within walking distance, amazing views and stunning sunsets whilst relaxing in the hot tub. The magnum size Prosecco and hamper of goodies was a very nice surprize. Shame we didn't know the local fish delivery man lives next door, we would've ordered lots of seafood but didn't find out until reading the Visitor Comment Book on the last day! Thank you for a wonderful week, (with perfect weather too!), we shall definitely recommend Rionnag Lodge and lhhscotland website to friends and family.

    The house is superb, thoughtfully designed, well furnished and very comfortable, an absolute credit to the owners. The views from the house are stunning and we were treated to a couple of fabulous sunsets. After a days exploring it was wonderful to return to Rionnag and watch the constantly changing view to Skye and Lewis. There are some beautiful and mostly empty beaches within easy reach of here and some lovely walks. We have stayed in a few of LHH’s houses and Rionnag is the best yet. No home is perfect but Rionnag is very close to it!

    We had a wonderful stay at Rionnag lodge! A stunning home from home with every need catered for. Every inch of this house has been carefully planned for visitors to enjoy. The attention to detail is first class, from the fluffy towels, Denby dinnerware to the hot tub & robes, it really was superb. Positioned to enjoy the most spectacular views over the Minch to the Hebrides, we watched numerous amazing sunsets during our holiday. We would definitely return. Huge thanks to the owners Terry & Janet, they’ve got a hidden gem of a place here, would highly recommend a stay.

  • "We had a wonderful break at Rionnag Lodge - the view from the floor to ceiling window over to Skye and Lewis/Harris is just amazing."

    We found ourselves sitting in the lovely sitting room simply admiring the view. Fully equipped kitchen, modern fittings and spacious accommodation that we simply loved. The hot tub was a bonus and the surrounding area beautiful to explore. When the sun came out what a spectacular place to be. Highly recommended and the owners next door very friendly and helpful - even some fresh fish for us to cook for dinner. Definitely would go back.

The property

Gairloch 8.8 miles.

Rising into the salty air of the bay, this beautiful wooden lodge brings with it a fresh contemporary twist, amazing views and access to a local beach.

Perfect for families with a taste for the more remote side of holidaying, Rionnag Lodge, situated in Aultgrishan, near Gairloch, is devoted to making the most of the dramatic scenery.

Arriving upon this beautiful property, you will notice that it combines a traditional holiday lodge with all of the opulence of a home, starting with the beautiful open-plan living area, sporting huge full-length windows to absorb natural light, creating an airy space within, you can recline on a stylish sofa, where relaxation is taken care of by a woodburning stove warming your feet, a TV and selection of books.

Enjoy cooking in the fully-furnished stylish kitchen, or have a hearty breakfast at the dining table before heading out to explore, and there is also a handy utility ready for your sandy clothing after spending a day at the beach.

If you wish to settle down for the night, there is a king-size bed on the ground-floor with pink walls, LED lighting and ample storage, as well as a beautifully furnished bathroom with a wooden basin and tub, hand-made and unique, where you can enjoy the warmth and bubbles after a long day.

Upstairs, a delightful twin room awaits, with skylights in the slanted ceiling to make the most of the natural light, as well as a wonderful world map wallpaper.

The final bedroom is probably the most impressive, with skylights in the floor and ceiling and a beautiful window at the end of the room immersing you in scenic views, and for starry evenings where you may get the chance to see the Northern Lights, then there is a telescope waiting for you to explore the night sky.

On the first-floor, there is a shower room with marble look tiles for a clean finish.

Outside, the enclosed garden offers you a place to admire both the lodge and the scenery, showing off the full-length windows and the mezzanine level that shelters a delightful hot tub, allowing you to relax in style even in the rain.

If you can tear yourself away from the beauty of the architecture and its surroundings, then you will find many wonderful shops within the town of Gairloch, including local craft and produce shops, coffee shops, a pub and a convenience store.

Boat trips are available for you to explore the rugged headland and see seals and otters in the bays.

Opportunities for hiking are readily available with access to mountain walking and cycling trails, whilst if you wish for a slower paced activity, there is a fantastic golf course not far from the property.

For those keen on heritage and history, head over to Gairloch Museum or explore Sand Archaeological Trail.
