A truly luxurious 10 double bedroom, 10 ensuite bathroom, bed & breakfast Lodge which offers top-end accommodation for guests. The Lodge is fully staffed.

Finished to the highest standards by well regarded Scottish designers, the bedrooms are separated into two accommodation wings – South and North. Each bedroom is individually designed and named after a pool on the Lower Dess fishing beats. Every room offers Sky TV, Wi-Fi, room safe, hair dryer, complimentary bathroom products by Scottish Fine Soaps and the ultimate in fluffy white robes to ensure our guests’ in-room comfort.

Any bedroom can be made up as twin or double beds to suit individual preference. All bedding is allergy and dust mite free and each room has a range of soft and firm pillows to meet those individual “Princess and the Pea” needs. There is a generous supply of white towels with an impossibly high GSM rating and lashings of hot water.

On each landing there is a complimentary hot drinks table where guests can make their beverage of choice at any time of the day or night. You might even want to avail yourself of the cookie jar!

The dining and drawing rooms offer the highest standards of comfort for large parties and guests will find that the small but important practical details have been well attended to with the provision of a drying room and secure storage.

The Lodge is available on a fully catered basis (dinner, bed & breakfast) using, where possible, the finest locally sourced Aberdeenshire produce. We have an excellent selection of wines and spirits available to purchase on an Honesty Bar basis. Should guests wish to bring their own wine, we will charge corkage at £10 per standard bottle.

Even the dogs are provided for with a separate kennel block.

Fully Staffed

The Lodge’s own Chef prepares all guest meals in our state of the art professional kitchen installed as part of the recent conversion. We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements/intolerances and such prerequisites can be discussed and planned in advance of your stay. You can view the Menu choices here.

Our Housekeeper is the first point of contact for guests on all domestic issues and will do everything to accommodate your needs. For particularly large parties, or where additional assistance is temporarily required, we have access to experienced staff who are happy to help as needed. The grounds and garden are well and regularly maintained by local staff who take a pride in the Lodge looking at its best.
