Located on the edge of Loch Ericht at the end of an 8 mile long private drive, The Gate Lodge offers accommodation for up to eight guests with luxurious accommodation and stunning views. Set in the heart of the Grampian Mountains The Gate Lodge was recently rebuilt to a very high specification, combining the extravagance of the 19th century with the comforts of the 21st.

The Gate Lodge combines the remoteness of the Scottish Highlands on the edge of the Cairngorms National park, with easy access to the rest of Scotland. The lodge is eight miles from the A9, and only ninety minutes drive to Perth, Inverness, Fort William or Grantown-on-Spey. Dalwhinnie is connected by a daily direct rail service from London Euston.  The ScotRail Sleeper is a lovely way to arrive in The Highlands from London!

For those wishing to do so, we can arrange unrivalled stalking and grouse shooting on the estate. There is an abundance of other activities available in the area and these can be seen on the ‘activities’ page.

Should you wish catering during your stay we can put you in touch with a local chef or cook.

Well behaved dogs by prior arrangement only.

We say...

The Gate Lodge is in a breathtaking position situated on Loch Ericht and accessed by the 8 mile private estate drive. A true Highland escape.

You say...

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help organising our trip to the Gate Lodge. We had a really incredible experience. It’s a stunning property and it didn’t hurt that we got quite lucky with the weather. A great birthday celebration all in all.
