The Lodge at Coille Bheag is an architect-designed semi-open plan luxury timber house, built to the latest energy-saving specifications for heating, lighting and insulation.
Like its sister property The Cottage, it commands beautiful panoramic views over Loch Ewe and the mountains of the Great Wilderness, Beinn Eighe and Sutherland, but is more spacious and offers Scandinavian-style modern comfort and luxury.
"Lodge is so light & airy & comfortable. We'll never tire of the fabulous views from the picture windows over the loch - saw quite a few lovely rainbows this week." - Heather & Ian, Edinburgh
The Lodge has ample parking and pedestrian access to the loch's pebble shore. Huge sandy beaches are within walking distance, or five minutes' drive.
The Lodge is available all the year round and is ideal for a cosy winter holiday, family summer break or romantic getaway. It can comfortably accommodate up to four people in its two double bedrooms - and there's a camp bed if you want to bring someone extra!
"The marvellous views through the Lodge's huge window was of the ancient mountains, sharp-etched as crystal and marvellously clothed in constantly changing colours. Magic!" - Webb family, Cotswolds
The large open-plan living area has a high cathedral ceiling, polished wooden floor and huge windows commanding spectacular views of Loch Ewe and the mountains beyond. There is satellite TV/radio and DVD/CD player as well as comfortable seating for four, a dining table and chairs and a writing desk. A range of books, DVDs & CDs is also available for you to enjoy.
The kitchen area adjoins the living area and is fully equipped with large butler sink and drainer, polished wood work surfaces, electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, spacious cupboards, washing machine, toaster, kettle and ironing board/iron.

Depending on the season and the weather, we may also be able to sell you fresh produce from the croft, such as free-range eggs or vegetables from our surplus. Come for Christmas week, and we'll even decorate a free Christmas tree from our managed woodland to put you in the mood for celebrating!
"Wow! Just wow! The perfect home from home in an idyllic location. The Lodge is fantastic and the views change every minute...the dark skies are unforgettable and it is great to be in an area with minimal light pollution." - Iain & Heather, Glasgow
The smaller of the two double bedrooms is on the ground floor, off the main living area and entirely private. It has an iron bedstead and pine bedroom furniture, commanding its own views over the village of Inverasdale.
The main double bedroom is upstairs on the mezzanine level. It's a spacious, galleried area with a leather-upholstered king-size bed and double wardrobe, offering total privacy and overlooking the hills, meadows and woodland bordering Loch Ewe.
"Thank you very much for this perfect accommodation...we loved every minute of it, colours, sights, tastes and smells! We have so much more to see and do, and would love another week in this very special house." - Felicity, Glenn, Elian & Lowry, New York, USA
