About the Lodge

The access to Dalnaspidal Lodge is along a private road, via a railway crossing. Located at the eastern shores of Loch Garry, this remote, spacious lodge offers charm and warmth and provides resplendent accommodation for up to 12 people. If required, the small but perfect Dalnaspidal Cottage furnished to the same exceptional standard can be made available at an extra charge. The nearby cottage provides self-contained accommodation for an additional four people, but there is ample room to dine together in the main lodge.

Loch Garry occupies a deep northeast-southwest aligned trench cut by glacial action, which has resulted in a dramatic landscape that guests can enjoy. The lodge is situated in a perfect location to explore the Cairngorm National park, Highland Perthshire, further afield to the beautiful west coast or the northern Highlands.



Lodge Features & Layout

The lodge is set within its own grounds with open views down Loch Garry. Garden furniture and a barbeque are provided for guests use.

The large light and airy drawing-room has an open fire, plenty of deep sofas, comfortable chairs, and exceptional views of Loch Garry and the surrounding mountains. A door leads through to the large conservatory.

The conservatory runs along the entire length of the drawing-room and offers spectacular views directly down the loch. French windows lead out to the lawns, where garden furniture is provided for guests to relax outside.

The sitting room has some magnificent interior design features, not least the focal gallery wall of mirrors. Plush warm fabrics, an open fire, and comfortable furnishings make this room both welcoming and relaxing. A TV and a DVD player and a small bar can also be found in his room for guests to use.

The billiard room across the hallway is very popular with guests for after-dinner entertainment.

The formal dining room has a large table where sixteen people can be seated in absolute comfort. If Dalnaspidal Cottage is booked with the main lodge, the whole party can dine together if desired. An open fire, subtle lighting, and sumptuous textiles add to the celebration of luxurious finishes in this room.

The practically designed kitchen is well equipped, spacious, bright, and airy. It has a large gas Range cooker with a gas hob, fridge freezer, ice machine, two wine fridges, microwave, dishwasher, hotplate, coffee maker, and a separate pantry.

Bedroom one has a king-size bed, and the room benefits from the best of interior design, as does the whole lodge. Tactile mixed fabrics, comfortable seating, and soft lighting give the room a welcoming feel.

The well designed en-suite bathroom exudes luxury with its roll-top freestanding bath, designer mirrors, a double vanity, and a walk-in shower room. Images one to seven are of bedroom one and the en-suite bathroom.



Bedroom two has twin beds and comfortable seating. Guests will enjoy the dramatic views of Loch Garry and the surrounding hills.

The muted, restful tones of the decoration and fabrics make this a very relaxing bedroom. The designated bathroom for room two, which is just across the hall, is fresh, and bright and it has a bath with a shower over.


Bedroom three has a king-size bed made up with the crisp white linen used throughout all of our lodges. Sumptuous throws and good quality pillows  maximise comfort to aid a good nights sleep.

Comfortable seating, a reading area and outstanding views from the windows make this room an ideal place to unwind. The quality flows through to the luxurious en-suite bathroom, which has a roll-top bath with a view.



Bedroom four has a king-size bed and is one of the larger bedrooms. The bay window seating area with some of the best views from the lodge is one of the many wonderful features of this room.

The outstanding en-suite bathroom with freestanding roll-top bath, walk in shower and luxurious finishes doesn’t disappoint.

Customer Testimonials

“Fabulous property. 5 Star luxury. Everything thought of, from water beside your bed to fully equipped kitchen, logs provided, full set of high quality toiletries in each bathroom. Everything about this is high quality. It’s recently renovated to an extremely high, tasteful standard. Was perfect for a special family get together. Plenty of space for 12 people. Fantastic views down to Loch Garry. Lots of walking opportunities right from the door. Don’t be put off by the proximity on the map to the A9. You can’t see or hear it from this property. Be prepared to be blown away by the scale and grandeur of this property.”
“We had a great stay and couldn’t fault the service throughout the weekend from the on-site team and in advance from your team.”

Julie Bird

Thank you for truly the most wonderful family holiday that we’ve ever shared. We had described the beauty of the location and of the house but seeing their faces, seeing it all for the first time, was magical. We hope to make it an annual event now!
