INTRO

A once grand hunting retreat of the Duke of Sutherland, private-hire Kinloch Lodge’s aristocratic pedigree has been lovingly nurtured into an idyll of accessible escapism and style in the peaceful northern county of Sutherland in the Scottish Highlands.

Vast, evocative landscapes that surround you on all sides immerse you in a Scottish daydream of pure escapism – a rural, wild retreat of the imagination so beautiful you simply won’t want to wake from it. 

Inside, Kinloch Lodge kindles its heritage with gorgeously aged plank flooring, sash windows and the casual comfort of tufted rugs on large, deep sofas, hued in thistle blues and shades of Highland heather.

A sense of sophisticated Highland style permeates the walls and furniture in Kinloch Lodge as the vast teal, silver and grey skies of the Highlands are replicated in the delicate Nordic touches found in artworks, designer furnishings from the likes of Carl Hansen and whimsical collectibles.

This exclusive, hire only Highland retreat offers a different way to get away from it all; here you can float off in to the surrounding infinity of nature as you doze in the stunning conservatory, surrounded by Scottish bracken and the idyllic purple haze of Scottish mountains snoozing in the distance, and wait for the tea bell to ring.
