There are four beautiful cottages on this expansive reserve. Alladale Lodge is a large manor house peeping out of the firs. Luxurious and blending seamlessly into the crags, this true Scottish haven hosts an in-house sauna, gym and snooker room, the perfect accompaniment to unwinding after a day playing outdoors. The lodge is fully catered and serviced by friendly, professional staff; leaving you nothing to worry about other than whose turn it is to play on the baby grand piano. If you’re after total seclusion Eagle’s Crag or Ghillies Rest Lodges both provide wonderful comfort and will feel like a real escape to the edge of the world. The food freshly made on the reserve is wholesome and comforting while using wholly organic produce from the reserve and surrounding area. Meat is ethically culled and the menu can be adaptive, if you’re up for trying the local game, trout and wild seafood.
