"River views and a wealth of glorious countryside combine to make this a wonderful setting for lovers of the great outdoors..."

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.
Your Ness Castle Lodges experience can be augmented with personalised beauty treatments with their specially appointed therapist. Take time out to enjoy a full day of pampering, or book a morning session to set you up for the day. From facials and Swedish massage to relaxation techniques, eyelash tinting and more treatments like Hopi Ear Candles, a spa session - or two! More information on what’s on offer is available on arrival.
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 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 location of the accommodation and the accommodation itself is first class and outstanding. All of us had a relaxed, enjoyable and awnsome week. We want to transfer your thx to Graham as well; he gave us a warm welcome and was always present when needed. Best

    The best holiday in a beautiful location after a hectic year. The cottage staff and owner were very helpful. I have given 5 for equipment just because the kitchen utensils(pans are very old and the non stick coating is gone, we managed to get a cheap pan by ourself for one use and left in the property. That's the only thing is near to worse in the property.

    Beautiful Setting, peaceful and tranquil but still in the Center of everything. The house is nicely refurbished, but already needs a new coat of paint on some spots. Cleanliness and Equipment could be better, but seem to be the Standard. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Benula Lodge is a wanderful relaxing place for a holiday. We were very impressed by it's location and stunning view of the river Ness. It is without a doubt the best place we have stayed at. We would recommend this holiday home to any person that is thinking of staying there. The staff that we met were very polite and helpful. I shall be thinking of our stay in this property with it' amazing surroundings for a very long time.

    This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the lodges. The weather once again was excellent, eating outside on the decking in March is pretty good. Extremely comfortable lodge, well equipped within a beautiful location. Equally attractive in all seasons. We will definitely return.
