The unassuming stone exterior blends in with the surrounding Munros but hides a stunning interior beautifully designed to be in sympathy with its origins and location and fully equipped for total comfort.  Whilst Glenuaig Lodge looks like a wee cottage it is a large four bedroom house with three reception rooms, a large kitchen and 2 bath/shower rooms. It was originally designed for Victorian gentlemen and their servants to lodge whilst stalking on the remote hills of the Estate, long before the advent of 4x4s.  In few places will you feel so at peace with the natural world.  A 4x4 is essential to go into Glenuaig. Local hire available

SPECIAL CONDITIONS FOR HIRING GLENUAIG LODGE

 

The rentals quoted are for up to 8 people and are inclusive of hydro-electricity and logs and of bed linen and fly fishing on the estate when in season. (Please see the Estate Rules and sporting seasons if you would like to fish).  If the hydro-electricity fails or for any other reason you use the diesel generator, there will be a charge for each 20 litre can of diesel that you use - currently it is £16 per can.  We make this charge to encourage the efficient use of the generator eg switching it off at night and when out.  I have no reason to think that the hydro will fail as we do have it regularly maintained but it obviously can fail.  The owner is registered for VAT - this will not change the price which is inclusive of VAT but we are able to supply a VAT invoice if you request one. 

 

Four Wheel Drive Vehicle and Parking:  Please note that it is absolutely necessary to have or hire a 4x4 with high clearance to access Glenuaig.  Please note it is not off road driving nor is the road very hilly but you need a vehicle with a high undercarriage as the road is very rough in parts.  Before you start the minimum four mile 4x4 part of your journey, you can park an ordinary car or two either by our stalkers cottage or in the Achnashellach Forest public car park opposite the private hill road to Glenuaig or about two miles up the hill road just before the Achnashellach gate, but this last option is on Forestry Commission land which we do not own and cannot give you permission to park on.  However we have often parked there and have never received any objection or had any difficulty.

 

Energy and the environment and circumstances beyond our control:  Glenuaig Lodge has its own micro-hydro-electricity scheme with back-up diesel generator and LPG (gas) cooking and heating facilities and log burning stoves which also heat the water in case of electricity failure.  In the event that heavy snow in Glenuaig prevents your occupation of the property (it rarely snows that much or lies for long on the West Coast but it can, of course), we will offer you an alternative property in the area if we can or return your payment in full or in part as appropriate.  Please note that as you will be aware Glenuaig Lodge is not an ordinary house in an ordinary street with ordinary mains services.  Given its location, we try to maintain Glenuaig Lodge to a high standard and we do generally succeed.  If the weather or other circumstances cause systems to fail and the backup systems do not work then if the house is uninhabitable and you cannot stay there for any part of your holiday, we will offer alternative accommodation or make an appropriate refund but if you can or do remain at the house we will not make a partial refund to reflect any loss of service, for example, if the hydro-electricity or water is not fully functioning.  Problems which cause the house to be uninhabitable are very rare but there may occasionally be some interruption of services.  That is part of the adventure of Glenuaig and part of your experience in living in the remote wilderness.  Generally, we do provide a luxurious experience at Glenuaig Lodge, but if you cannot manage without modern comforts guaranteed all the time please do not book.

 

Internet access is not available at Glenuaig Lodge and there is no mobile reception there.  If you want to pick up text messages or make calls you can drive about 20 minutes back along the glen where there is mobile reception.  The satellite tv has all free view channels available.

 

BED LINEN AND TOWELS   We need to know final numbers about two months in advance please.  At Glenuaig Lodge bed linen and towels are included in the rental when it is taken separately from Glencarron Lodge.

GUEST COMMENTS - Glenuaig Lodge

 

Some visitors to Glenuaig wrote: “What can I say ? It was a fantastic weekend in a truly stunning location. Walking, eating and watching DVDs (good selection by the way) in front of the fire was the perfect break and enjoyed by young and not so young! The Lodge has tremendous character and we all felt at home very quickly. The drive up to Glenuaig is an adventure in itself and the deer turned out in force to welcome us. As you would expect from Scotland in January the weather threw everything at us ...snow, sleet, rain, wind ....but that really added to the experience. Watching the weather change, from inside the very cosy kitchen, was fascinating. And on Sunday a climb to one of the snow covered summits was rewarded with blue sky and brilliant sunshine. Breathtaking.  ...  The Lodge is extremely well equipped and has been really nicely refurbished without losing its original charm. And appearances are deceptive. It looks small and compact from the outside but inside it opens up into very spacious and comfortable accommodation. A real Tardis!   We will be back!” Others wrote, "WE HAD A LOVELY TIME.… had afternoon tea and cake whilst watching a pair of Golden Eagles!  The other days were spent walking.  Our hobby is nature photography and the stunning surroundings gave us plenty of scope to work. We dined every evening in the big kitchen and then sat by the wood burning stove in the lounge…As regards the house, we only used half of the rooms, but it is lovely and very cosy."  Those that stayed over one Christmas wrote, "It was breath taking. The dogs loved it racing up the mountains....The walks were fantastic ... The pictures you sent really don't do it justice.... a little piece of heaven.....Would definitely like to come again".  Others wrote, "It was a truly beautiful and magical place." And others, "… It is hard to believe that such gems still exist."  And others, when enquiring for a second visit wrote, “We came last February ...  I’m no hippy ..... but the beauty of that place is spiritual and I must come again.”
