  • "This lodge is absolutely wonderful everything you could possibly need."

    One slight concern was that whilst dog owners are requested to clean up after their dogs sadly previous tenants had not cleared up and we ended up cleaning up several dog poos that were not our dogs

  • "One of the best Christmas holidays we’ve had in a long time."

    A lovely welcome pack and the Christmas presents were a lovely touch. We used the log fire alot as the temperatures dropped to below freezing. Did abit of sightseeing and spent a few days relaxing in the lodge. The owner was very helpful and rang a couple of times to make sure all was ok. We will be rebooking in the future.

  • "Allt Lodge is fantastic."

    The house is beautiful & in a perfect location for a quiet holiday. Loch Meiklie is only a couple of minutes walk away - lovely spot for wild swimming. The house is very well appointed, warm & cosy. We didn’t use the wood burner at all as we visited in July & it was already very warm. Highly recommended.

  • "Nicest place we've ever stayed in."

    Very spacious in beautiful surroundings. The whirlpool bath was great after a long day walking. The utility area was a great edition too, especially as when raining or coming in with dogs you have somewhere to hang your stuff.

The property

Drumnadrochit 5.6 miles.

Approached via a quiet farm road in the village of Balnain within the Scottish Highlands, is this charming two-storey property, Allt Lodge.

This property has been lovingly decorated into a warm and welcoming space completely accessible for those with limited mobility through ramp access into the property and a handy wet room.

Upon entering the lodge, you will be greeted by a utility area which houses a washing machine and tumble dryer so you don't have to bring your whole wardrobe with your during your trip.

Here you will also find a ground-floor wet room and a twin bedroom, most suitable for guests who require wheelchair access.

Walk through to the open-plan living space which has a woodburning stove taking centre stage and a selection of furniture seated around it.

Cosy up on the plush sofas and while away the hours in front of the TV with your favourite shows, or simply catch up on the day's events.

Gather at the large dining table which has enough seating for all six guests and is the perfect spot for enjoying a home-cooked meal or for a family game night.

The kitchen has been fitted to a high-standard with pristine white units and sleek granite worktops housing all the necessary appliances for a weekend in the countryside.

For the remaining guests, venture up to the first floor where you will find a king-size and twin bedroom featuring a selection of wooden furniture for storing your personal belongings.

The master bedroom comes with its own balcony area, ideal for taking a cup of tea and a good book to watch the sunrise across the surrounding farmland.

Discover your very own bathroom with luxury fittings such as the corner Jacuzzi bath where you can enjoy a long soak after a tiring day and let those bubbling jets work their magic on your aching muscles.

Or choose to have a quick wash in the separate shower cubicle, before using the ‘his and hers’ sinks to finish getting ready for the day.

To the rear of the lodge is a large lawned garden overlooking the stunning surrounding countryside, as well as a decked are with ample seating space.

Look forward to dining alfresco during the summer months, or simply use this as a quiet space to read and enjoy a refreshing beverage.

A few miles away is the charming village of Drumnadrochit which has a convenience store for picking up any last-minute ingredients, as well as a choice of traditional Scottish eateries for those evenings you don't fancy cooking.

Resting alongside the Loch Ness, you can enjoy a variety of water sporting opportunities here, particularly fishing and sailing, whilst discovering tales of the local folklore monster of the same name, something your little ones will delight in; more information about the Loch Ness monster's history can be found at Nessieland.

If it's some historical architecture you're looking for, then the 16th Century Urquhart Castle or the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition are well-worth visiting.

Further afield is the bustling city of Inverness, where you can visit popular tourist attractions such as Inverness Castle, Inverness Museum and Art Gallery or the Inverness Botanic Gardens.

Allt Lodge is perfectly placed for those looking to explore the Scottish Highlands and all its delights.
