Scardroy Lodge is in a wonderful position at the head of Strathconon and enjoys magnificent views down the glen.
Scardroy Estate forms part of the extensive Strathconon Estate and extends to nearly 83,000 acres. Situated in central Ross-shire, in the Highlands of Scotland, the estate offers a beautiful and varied terrain from open rolling country to a mountainous landscape. The area includes the Estates Strathconon, Scardroy and Ledgowan.
The estate covers large parts of three deep glacial glens, Meig, Bran and Orrin, which are deep and narrow valleys running west to east. The large proportion of the high ground is over 1000 feet and with the high more than 3000 feet above sea level. Strathconon is the longest glen in Scotland stretching for more than 20 miles.
Scardroy Lodge was built as a traditional sporting lodge and is very well equipped throughout. The lodge has been upgraded recently to provide a warm and very comfortable space with all the modern facilities. There’s no mobile phone signal in the glen which helps make for an even more relaxing getaway but Satellite broadband is in place.
Scardroy Lodge sleeps up to 19 guests (13 adults, 6 children) in 8 bedrooms and provides comfortable accommodation over two floors.
The Lodge is provided on a self-catered basis with two hours of housekeeping included in the rental each day.
WiFi is provided throughout the Lodge and provided by Satellite. Guests should be aware that due to the location, connectivity cannot be guaranteed. Guests will be provided with a weekly download limit and GB in excess of this will be chargeable. A landline telephone is always available. All bed linen and towels are included in the rental.
