Brewlands Lodge, just 90 minutes from Edinburgh, on a Highland estate on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park with lochs and mountains yet with lots of golf courses nearby, is an elegant and welcoming very special large Scottish holiday house, set amongst 120 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds. It is available for a fully, partially or self-catered holiday to any level. It is ideal for family gatherings or group bookings and is often rented for corporate hospitality. The 8 bedrooms (6 bathrooms) sleep 16 guests in tremendous comfort. There are not only numerous activities and places to see both on and off the estate but because we try to do everything to make your holiday a happy one, we provide a full concierge service.
This imposing house with a fabulous ancient garden, a revolving summerhouse, a hot tub and a tennis court, is the place to find peace and tranquillity for your holiday in the Scottish highlands, yet is only 35 minutes from fantastic cashmere, kilt and gourmet food shopping. Close to the Queen's and Queen Mother's Balmoral and Glamis Castles, there is outstanding wildlife viewing, fishing, clay pigeon and other shooting and lots of other activities along with whisky distillery tours and artisan food producers. Championship golf courses such as St Andrews and Gleneagles are within easy reach and there are many other nearby courses too.
Brewlands Lodge is beautifully furnished and comes with a Claridges-trained housekeeper for 2 hours every day, enabling you to relax and enjoy being looked after. Our clients love the combination of great comfort, peace, the wealth of wildlife and wild flowers, the full concierge service and the huge variety of activities available both on and off the estate. Why not play tennis or croquet followed by the hot tub and a massage while our chef makes you a delicious dinner from our exceptional local produce?
One of Brewlands Lodge's great advantages is its central position within Scotland, enjoying the best of Highland scenery yet with 14 golf courses (including St Andrews), a 2 star Michelin restaurant, fantastic shopping, the Queen's Highland home and some of Scotland's best distilleries within 75 minutes drive, and the World Heritage Site of Edinburgh with its world renowned Edinburgh International Festival, the National Galleries of Scotland and other fascinating sights, within 90 minutes.
In spring, the lengthening days are filled with birdsong. Thousands of daffodils are followed by native bluebells, wild violets, and hillsides covered with foxgloves. Cast your line for the spring run of salmon. In May and June the rhododendrons are in full bloom and we experience glorious lingering twilights when it is perfectly possible to read a newspaper at 11 pm. These long days of sun are ideal conditions for the locally grown strawberries and raspberries. Summer turns the heather hills purple: get up at dawn to stalk or let us arrange a picnic complete with tartan rugs overlooking 'Pol Gorm' (in Gaelic 'the water which reflects the sky'). During the autumn and winter, our shooting is at its very best. In January and February, the most extensive skiing in Scotland is available in the mountains nearby. Brewlands Lodge is an ideal holiday house throughout the year!
