There can be few things better than getting away from it all to a beautifully situated luxury 5 Star self-catering eco-lodge in the Scottish Highlands. Add in the fact that Lodges at the Mains has Inverness Airport – and links to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin and beyond – within 10 minutes’ drive and you have the perfect destination for a secluded short break.
What could be more decadent and romantic than having your own luxury Highland lodge for Christmas or New Year? Imagine relaxing under the dark night sky in the wood-fired hot tub or sitting in front of a roaring fire with snowy scenes framed by large picture windows on all sides and beautiful coastal and forest walks on your doorstep.
Festive breaks at Lodges at the Mains are the ultimate Christmas or New Year indulgence, where a warm welcome and complimentary luxury festive hamper awaits.
Snow and frost lends a magical atmosphere to an already hypnotic part of the Highlands. And, with four ski resorts within reach of our 5 Star Eco holiday homes, this is a perfect base from which to explore the local ski and snowboard scene. Or how about sampling an authentic Burns’ Night in the great bard’s homeland?.
You would be forgiven for thinking Lodges at the Mains were purpose-built as a base for visiting Scotland’s best distilleries. Speyside’s world-famous Malt Whisky Trail starts at Benromach – a mere stone’s throw from our luxury lodges – and continues east to Dallas Dhu, Glen Moray, Cardhu, Glenlivet, Glen Grant, Speyside Cooperage, Glenfiddich and Strathisla.
There are also great distilleries to visit to the north and south during your break, including Tomatin, Dalmore, Glenmorangie and Clynelish.
Just four miles from Scottish Open venue, Castle Stuart, and ten from Nairn Golf Club, which has hosted the Walker and Solheim Cups, our 5 star self-catering lodges make the perfect base from which to play some of the country’s finest golf courses.
Royal Dornoch – regularly rated in the world’s top ten courses – and Tain, Brora and Moray are examples of Scottish links golf at its best while hidden gems at Fortrose & Rosemarkie, Spey Valley and Boat of Garten, make this the perfect destination for a luxury Highland golf break.
