Meall Mor Lodge
Nestling below a wooded hill above a curve of the Alness river, Meall Mor Lodge lies at the heart of the 19,000 acre Kildermorie Estate, acknowledged as one of the finest all-round sporting estates in Ross-shire ; an area renowned for its wildlife and magnificent scenery. It offers privacy and seclusion, yet is under an hour from the City of Inverness.
Maintained to a high standard, the spacious lodge makes the ideal base for a family holiday, sporting group, corporate or conference use or to celebrate a special event. It offers luxurious centrally-heated accommodation for up to 20, furnished throughout with period furniture (including a grand piano) and a features a cook's delight of a modern kitchen. Birch logs are provided for the welcoming open fires in both the upstairs and downstairs receptions rooms. There is a secure gun room, with individual steel cabinets, a large drying/boot room and a "sun-trap" of a south-facing courtyard.
The lodge is let on a self catered basis but excellent cooks can be recommended. Towels, linen, toiletries are provided by the housekeeper, who also oversees the daily maid service.
The 10 individually-styled bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom provided with endless, instant hot water, comfortably sleep 20. Five of the suites are doubles and five are twins, of which one is handicapped-equiped and located adjacent to a suite ideal for a carer.
If additional accommodation is required there are two delightful centrally-heated and well-equipped cottages available to rent close by the lodge. April Cottage sleeps 2 adults plus 2 children (bunk beds). May Cottage sleeps 2 (double or twin). Ideal for guests who like a little extra privacy or for staff.
