TASTEFULLY APPOINTED GLENCARRON LODGE
The large Drawing Room is the first room guaranteed to capture your breath when entering Glencarron Lodge. The bright room with tall windows is magnificent and would not look out of place in a period drama. There are various sofas and armchairs for relaxing, and a large book case features some of the lodge's reading matter. The working fire place is a wonderful addition for colder months and helps keep the Drawing Room warm and cosy.
A very elegant long period wood table sits proudly at the heart of the Glencarron Lodge dining room, which has walls featuring some of the estates stags, shot in the past two centuries. Perfect for any occasion, but best for memorable dinners and special occasions, the dining room is bright and spacious and enjoys some of the best views of the estate.
Catering can be arranged if needed to help make celebrations even more special.
The bright and modern kitchen is a lovely place for preparing meals, and adds a contemporary touch to the otherwise classic, period shooting lodge. The sleek wood units and slate floors are easy to clean and there are plenty of cupboards for storing food, as well as all the usual pots, pans, cutlery and crockery. Modern appliances featured in the well-equipped kitchen, include large fridge, freezer, oven, microwave and washing machine. There are even a few features paying homage to the lodge's stately past, including the original servants call bells and an Aga, which is still in working order.
