Corrour Lodge near Fort William is without doubt the most contemporary 21st century ‘castle’ in Scotland.
Designed by acclaimed Boston based architect Moshe Safdie, the lodge sits on the site of two former shooting lodges, has wonderful views over Loch Ossian and is surrounded by 5 munros (mountains over 3000 feet). The lodge is at the heart of a family owned 60,000 acre estate and is truly a Highland wilderness with an abundance of wildlife and majestic scenery. Corrour Lodge never fails to impress anyone lucky enough to experience it firsthand and it truly is a sanctuary of luxury and comfort in the wilds of Scotland.
Corrour Lodge is sited so that all guest rooms have views of Loch Ossian, while walkways and terraces allow guests to enjoy views of the surrounding mountains near Fort William. The interiors are a mix of modern design, state-of-the-art technology and some traditional touches. The lodge has a very light and spacious feel, with a large inner hall and spiral staircase leading to the seven main bedrooms and a wonderful children’s bunk room. Along with a large sitting room and formal dining room that seats up to 32, the lodge has a library, office and games room. Informal meals are taken in the kitchen and all the guests are superbly looked after by the resident housekeeper and her husband. There is additional accommodation in the School House, the Chapel and the Cooks Unit that will accommodate another 10-14 guests.
There are some wonderful local, natural attractions for any lucky guest of Corrour Lodge to visit along with some tailored tours of the estate to suit a variety of interests. There is excellent stalking on the estate as a result of the Deer Management Programme; fishing for brown trout; pony trekking on one of the estate's 16 Icelandic mountain ponies; mountain biking; hill walking; canoeing; rowing and motor boating. There is a also a sauna and gym.
Wildlife is in abundance including red and roe deer; golden eagles and ptarmigan; red and black grouse; golden plovers and pine martens; black throated divers; peregrin falcons; merlins and goshawks; badgers and otters; dotterels and mountain hares.
The drive from the main road to the lodge is 11 miles, so once at Corrour Lodge guests are unlikely to venture far from the estate and there is really no need to. This is a property where guests can truly relax and find total escape from the pressures of everyday life. Some arrive by overnight sleeper from Euston direct into Corrour station (the highest station in the UK) when one of the estate staff will drive them down to the lodge in time for breakfast and to begin their Corrour adventure.
2 hours to Inverness airport.
"We had the most wonderful time at Corrour. Bob, Betty and staff were so attentive and caring it just made it perfect (such wonderful people, they made us feel so at home). We all agreed it was the best holiday any of us had ever had. The lodge and the scenery were out of this world, as you can see I can't really find words to describe how much we all enjoyed it. If I have my way, we will back!"
