Sumptuous Scottish hideaway in superlative loch-side setting

Overlooking the waters of Loch Ewe, this sumptuous Highland hideaway practically rubs shoulders with the wildlife outside its doors, where local residents include seals, herons and otters.

Rooms and suites
Five suites

Special features
All suites have sea and river views, wi-fi and amazing bathrooms – some with rare antique baths. The beds are pretty special, too – The Nairana suite's canopy bed is a copy of the one given to Josephine by Emperor Napoleon. Diadem and Campania have four-posters. Two suites have balconies or a private patio, two (Diadem and Scharnhorst) have working coal fires for the winter months, and Whimbrel has a hot tub.

Pillow Talk
Nairana is the most exotic suite, with its antique kingsize bed, private patio, huge window and elaborate paintings studded with diamonds, emeralds and rubies. If it has to be a four poster bed opt for Diadem, or check into Whimbrel, for your very own outdoor hot tub.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Dine beneath the stars in North by North West, Pool House's dining room, whose ceiling features a huge star-studded zodiac fresco on a midnight blue backdrop. With fat candles and walls glinting in gold at sundown, it's a setting to remember.

Highlights of the modern Scottish menu include hand dived scallops, creel caught langoustines and lobster from Loch Ewe. The chef also serves up local beef and venison alongside garden-grown organic veggies. Presentation is simple and wholesome. A set four-course menu is served on Wednesdays and Sundays, with a la carte options and seafood platters available on other nights.

Full Scottish breakfast is served until 9.45am. Specialities include traditional oatmeal porridge with whisky, fantastic kippers and smoked salmon.

See & Do
Take to the sea in search of whales, porpoises, seals and birds – marine cruises are plentiful. Go sea angling or catch your own supper hauling in creels from a fishing boat. Pack a picnic and make your way to the world-famous sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe or get to know the local wildlife at the Beinn Eighe and Loch Maree nature reserves. Ranger guided walks are easily arranged and the golf course in nearby Gairloch boasts views of the isle of Skye.

Eilean Donan castle is picture-worthy at any time of day, while Gairloch Heritage museum is worth a browse. You can also visit a working Perfume studio at Mellon Charles.

There’s indoor swimming within half a mile.

Diary Dates
Guys can impress their gals at the Gairloch Highland games held at the end of the month.

Watch the four-legged contestants show off their skills at the Gairloch sheep dog trials.
