Perfect for a relaxing break, Ness Castle Estate lies in the heart of magnificent game fishing and golfing country, and with lovely walking on the doorstep, it is an ideal location for nature lovers and sporting enthusiasts alike. River Lodge (ref SYYA) is a magnificent, detached, ‘Colorado’-style lodge providing complete relaxation and seclusion for larger parties. For smaller parties, Weir Cottage (ref SXXS) and Red Squirrel Lodge (ref SYYB) are single storey and adjoin one another, whilst spacious Ghillie’s Lodge (ref SYYC) and Benula Lodge (ref SYYM) stand detached. All have river views and are just minutes away from the city of Inverness. Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Loch Ness cruises and dolphin spotting on the Moray Firth are among the myriad of delights within easy reach. For those wishing to explore a little further afield the magical Isle of Skye, visiting the beautiful, romantic Eilean Donan Castle on the way, or a leisurely boat trip to the Orkney Isles which offer beautiful, rugged scenery with an abundance of wildlife and many archaeological sites make great days out. Whisky lovers can visit one of the many distilleries on the famous Strathspey Whisky Trail, sampling some of the finest whiskies in Scotland. At nearby Inverness, visitors will find a wealth of historic and cultural attractions as well as good shopping, bars and restaurants. Salmon fishing, by arrangement is 1 mile. By arrangement, guests also have the use of the shared hot tub, steam room and small gym, both located at The Bothy. For those wishing to explore a little further, day trips to the Orkney Isles, Isle of Skye and Glencoe are possible. Shop 1 mile, pub 2½ miles.

    The holiday was fantastic and Benula Lodge and grounds were beyond expectation. although the house was clean and tidy, it hadn't had a thorough clean as there were empty pop bottles and rubbish behind the bed in the single bedroom, these were easily moved and wasn't a big problem. My only disappointment was not being able to use the hot tub or gym during our stay. Again this did not stop us from having a fab holiday.

    This this the second time we've stayed at Ness Castle Lodges, staying in Ricer Lodge 3 years ago. Benula lodge is just perfect. It was spotlessly clean and was very well stocked for all of our parties needs. Plenty of board games for the children too. The views are fantastic, the lodge is lovely and warm and beautifully decorated and the people are so very friendly. Can't wait to book for next year :)
