Corrievarkie Lodge

How often have you wanted to get away from it all? How often have you wanted to be free from the stress and pace of modern life? Well, this is where you can hide from the invasion of our modern world. This is a place for those who enjoy the company of their friends and the glory of Scotland’s wilderness; where the scale and importance of things can be reassessed.

At the end of a private 11 mile long drive, passing across the moors and rivers you arrive at the untamed majesty of Loch Ericht. Here stands a hunting lodge that had no access by road until the modern age. When it was built in the 1860’s all its furnishings and supplies came by pony or by boat, and despite the fact that one can now drive to it, it’s remoteness is still very much part of its attraction.

Once cut off you can begin to relax in an environment of remote independent seclusion that is so difficult to find in modern Britain. Sleep in, restore the soul, build a bonfire on the shore under the stars, climb to view even wider panoramas of mountain and loch, luxuriate in deep baths with lots of hot water, play hide and seek; do anything,……just relax. Due to the remoteness of this property we advise any parties booking in October or April that they should have at least one 4WD vehicle in the party in case of snow and ice.

This lodge has no landline telephone and mobile reception is possible by putting your own SIM card into our cell phone unit in the lodge. We cannot guarantee that all providers give reception in this area.

For those wishing to do so, we can arrange sporting activities. There are other activities available in the area and these can be seen on the ‘activities’ page of this website.

Cook and daily housekeeper can be arranged at an additional charge.
