Dalness Lodge is situated in a dramatic setting on the 13,000 acre Dalness Estate in Glen Etive, and is set amongst some of the most spectacular scenery in the Scottish Highlands.
The Lodge was recently renovated to an exceptionally high standard and can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 bedrooms; all with en-suite or private bathrooms. It is a wonderful year-round venue for family gatherings or special occasions. Dalness is an ideal place to escape for long weekends or a seasonal break to enjoy walking, climbing one of the many Munros on the doorstep, or skiing at the nearby Glencoe Mountain Resort.
Try your hand at salmon fishing on the River Etive, or mackerel and trout fishing on Loch Etive using one of the estate boats. Guests can also enjoy an excursion down the length of Loch Etive with its stunning scenery on the estate RIB, perhaps stopping for a picnic on the loch shore. Red deer stalking and clay pigeon shooting are also available at Dalness.
As an alternative to the traditional sporting activities, Dalness can also arrange for guided hillwalking, loch kayaking, tutored photography and chauffeur tours.
The Lodge is 17miles away from Glencoe and 32 miles from Fort William. Glasgow Airport is less than two hours away. Alternatively the overnight-sleeper train services Bridge of Orchy – a scenic 30 minute drive from the Lodge.
The rate includes the services of a housekeeper and chef. The rate does not include food, which is charged at cost to the client at the end of their stay.
The rate also includes: • Use of estate bicycles • Fly fishing for salmon and trout on the river Etive (ghillie and equipment available) • Accompanied walking / wildlife trips • Argo trips available – mainly for younger / older members of a party who may struggle with the hill walking • Clay pigeon shooting • X2 RIB trips (wildlife / sightseeing on Loch Etive or fishing on Loch Leven) – additional trips available but charged separately • Rifle targets
Dogs, whilst welcome, are not allowed in the Lodge at any time, but are housed in Estate kennels, each having its own run.
Short Breaks available upon request in Low and Mid Season. Please speak to us for more information.
Enjoy salmon fishing with the house pool on your doorstep or take the boat out to Loch Etive.
We had a great time at Dalness – what a stunning estate/part of the world. My middle son shot his first stag and it was a mighty animal, very exciting – on the fishing front we were less successful – Jim was great and very patient while helping us try to catch salmon on the river. The salmon rods that the estate provided were excellent. In summary we all had a fantastic holiday – lovely place, great crew of people looking after us, wonderful meals, and everything worked!
