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.

    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.

    Fantastic cottage - great layout and lovely the conservatory which we eat breakfast in. Decoratation is lovely and homely. The views of the riverbed were such a surprise as we arrived in the dark. Close to Inverness but you really feel as though you are totally away from every thing. Definately booking again for next year.

    What a beautiful house in a beautiful location. The grounds around the estate are so well maintained too. A fabulous setting on the banks of the River Ness for a special family holiday. We were sorry to leave. Thank you so very much. David and his team are a welcoming and lovely.

    Staying in Benula Lodge with family has been a lovely and pleasant experience. The house is well-equipped, large enough for seven adults and a baby, and felt very homely with a country house atmosphere. The conservatory gives a lot of extra sitting space and the whole house is tastefully furnished. We have found everything we could possibly need present in Benula Lodge, with kitchen equipment in top condition and plenty of crockery, bowls, cups, etc. On top of this, the house stands slightly elevated in a beautiful setting and the view, peaceful surroundings and the sound of the river make for a wonderful place to stay.

    This is a stunning location, private, and has more than you could want within the house. we have stayed in lots of cottages and this is at the top. it would have been helpfull if facilities on site were explained more, e we wernt sure if there was a place to a drink or not get food or not etc etc as lots of activity and workers around but no explanation of what they were doing and why. apart from that first class
