About the Lodge

Corrievarkie Lodge, built in the 1860s, is set in a gloriously and remote location on the southern shores of beautiful Loch Ericht. Calm and solitude are assured for guests staying in this comfortable and welcoming lodge. Spectacular views can be enjoyed from Corrievarkie over the loch to the rugged slopes of magnificent Ben Alder.

The lodge is the perfect choice for large parties to relax and unwind, with the opportunity to go for low level walks along the shoreline, for hill walking, or fishing. Sporting activities can be arranged by the estate, on request. Alternatively, guests can spend time exploring rural Perthshire. The serene glens, endless expanses of lush forest, bleakly beautiful moors, and rushing rivers with tumbling waterfalls are probably why Sir Walter Scott aptly named the region “The fairest portion of the northern kingdom.”

Due to the remote location and winter conditions, which can affect access, Corrievarkie Lodge is only bookable from the beginning of May through to the end of October each year.

Lodge Features & Layout

The location of Corrievarkie Lodge is undeniably beautiful. The most striking and dramatic scenery is on the far side of the loch, where views pan out towards the mighty Ben Alder mountain, with its varied terrain. Gentler, but no less striking views can be enjoyed looking to the east or west along the length of the vast Loch Ericht.

The drawing room has deep sofas and chairs, an open fire, and the warm colours of the furnishings and fabrics create a cosy ambience. The views from this room over the loch to the magnificent Ben Alder mountain are incredible.

The sitting room has comfortable seating centred around the Freesat television, and there is also a DVD player for guests to use.
