During the course of the past five years The Lodge and all of the Estate has been restored.
Great care has been taken to retain provenance whilst equiping with the usual modern facilities. The Lodge has five principle bedrooms with a further three perfectly comfortable ones as well. Downstairs includes a whisky room, sitting room, dining and reading rooms. Walls of the latter are painted with highland scenes by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-1873) celebrated artist of his day and whose bronze lions grace Trafalgar Square in London to this day.
