Just off the winding, often a single-lane track that snakes its way along the south side of Loch Ness, this Victorian lodge has tree-fringed views over the water and cool, vintage chic interiors.

The characterful conversion, peppered with eclectic auction and antique store finds – as well as a smattering of taxidermy – gives it a theatrical vibe.

There are eight bedrooms up the grand staircase; walls daubed in dramatic tones of aubergine, forest green and teal, bare-board floors strewn with rugs, and bathrooms of Victorian porcelain.

There’s a cosy, tartan-trimmed sitting room where you can hole up with a dram, a peacock (stuffed) and a piano in the Art Deco-styled drawing room and bar.

This is one for design-conscious couples, looking for a funky Highland hideaway.

Surrounding area

Even though this is the more peaceful side of Loch Ness, the route, often single track, is busy during the summer. The hillsides are blanketed in Caledonian pine forest, and it’s around a half-hour drive into Inverness.
