Save to favouritesPrintMailLoch Ness LodgeWith dramatic views out across the water to a string of craggy mountains beyond, this feels like a remote and historic Highland retreat; yet itís a brand new building and, unbelievably, Inverness is only 15 minutesí drive away. All credit to Scott Sutherland and his sister Iona, who inherited the lochside land from their parents and have created an imposing yet secluded hideaway. A turret at one end of the long, grey-roofed building adds a touch of Baronial grandeur; clever landscaping hides the A82 from view; and a private underpass below the road gives secret access to the loch's shoreline. Inside, the guest lounges and 7 [r:UK057:bedrooms] are a lesson in immaculate sophistication, with a mix of upmarket, contemporary furnishings, fresh flowers and family heirlooms. The feel is country-house-comfort rather than look-at-me showiness, and makes for a cosseting retreat after a day spent hiking in bracingly dreich Highland weather, or Nessie-spotting out on the loch.
