ANCARRAIG Lodges, Great Glen, Scotland

Previous Next

Ancarraig Lodges is a stunning collection of 12 Scandinavian style self-catering lodges set in the hills high above Loch Ness.

Whilst beautifully secluded in a woodland setting, the site offers stunning views of Loch Ness and the rolling hills of Scotland.

The Lodges are ideally located directly on the Great Glen Way, 5 minutes from the village of Drumnadochit, 17 miles from Inverness, and 5 minutes to the main visitor attraction on Loch Ness: Urquhart Castle.

The site is situated on a gateway to some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery via the A82,  one of the country’s  most  popular  tourist routes. The magnificent rural location offers guests the unique opportunity to watch the sun climb over the mountains from the comfort of their own private decking area, whilst taking in  the pure Highland air and watching the abundant wildlife. There are various types of deer, as well as buzzards and eagles soaring above you, black grouse, pheasant, pine marten, mountain hare and red squirrels all in their natural habitat and even heron in the site’s very own private lochans.

The lodges are laid out in an attractive low- density manner and are served by loose coarse gravel roadways.

Each plot benefits from its own car parking space and is thoughtfully positioned so as to give the occupants the maximum amount of privacy.

Each lodge has two bedrooms and sleeps between 4-5 people across a double and a twin or bunk bedroom. There is a bath and shower in every lodge, along with an open plan living and dining area, fully fitted kitchen, flat screen television and a covered outside veranda with further dining facilities. You can read more about the lodges themselves and the improvements made since December on the next page.

An aim following purchase of the site was to open all year to capitalise on the year-round demand from tourists visiting Scotland. As a result of the renovations (to include new insulation, double glazing and log-burners) the site operates 365 days a year and bookings have already been taken for Christmas and New Year.

Funds are now being raised to remortgage the existing short-term finance, simply replacing the loan with a more sustainable interest rate over    a longer term, with regular payments offered to investors.
