The heart-stopping grandeur of Glencoe, combined with an unusual hotel concept, are the main draws of this imposing mansion built by Lord Stratchcona in 1896.

This glen is where one of the most infamous massacres in Scottish history took place in 1692, and today is one of Scotland’s greatest drives.

There are 14 one- and two-bedroom suites in the main house, dripping in period features, each with its own sitting room and dining area.

Everything, from breakfast to the five-course gourmet dinners, is served in your suite – essentially, a restaurant experience – without the restaurant.

Adjacent Strathcona Lodge has six contemporary two-storey suites, each with a wood-burning stove and hot tub.

This is a hotel hybrid, perfect for those wanting total privacy.

Surrounding area

The hotel is surrounded by 10 acres of grounds at the western end of Glencoe, with far-reaching views over Loch Leven and its neighboring peaks.

The area is one of Scotland’s outdoor adventure hotspots, with munros to bag on the doorstep and the Glencoe Mountain Resort just down the road, offering snow sports in winter and mountain biking in the summer.
