Please note: This property has a security deposit of £500.. Craiglea Lodge is a truly unique property in the magical far north of the Scottish Highlands. It rivals exclusive North American and Alpine properties, as well as anything on offer across the United Kingdom. Its indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, from which uninterrupted views along the cliffs and out to sea are enjoyed, separates Craiglea Lodge from other properties. It’s a very, very special place that we urge you to book now.
Not only is the situation and location spectacular because of geography – you’re perched above the steep-sided valley that leads to the historic Latheronwheel Harbour on the Moray Firth – but also because the world-famous NC500 touring route is a stone’s throw away. In fact, it’s a perfect position because you can head north-north-east, northwest or south from Craiglea Lodge because Latheronwheel has a junction of NC500 routes leading off for exploration and adventures.
We love the location because you can be beyond Wick exploring Reiss Sands, Keiss, Duncansby Stacks and John O’Groats; heading west to Thurso and adventuring along the far north coast with amazing surfing beaches at Dunnet, Reay, Melvich and Strathy; plus you can easily go south to characterful Helmsdale with its world-renowned salmon river and amazing interior road through to the north coast beaches. All places mentioned are within 45 minutes’ drive, and with the interior road route via Helmsdale you can really explore this area by heading out on loop drives from Craiglea Lodge, not simply out-and-back tours.
Other notable places to visit and things to do close to Craiglea Lodge include Whaligoe Steps, Dunrobin Castle, Berriedale Footbridge and Braes, Old Pulteney Whisky Distillery Tour, Caithness Sea Coast boat trip, Orkney Islands Daytrip, to name only a few.
Activities and experiences can be arranged for your group, simply contact the owner directly and outline your interests and requests. The owner is incredibly helpful and very well connected to set things up for you. Previous guests have visited local art studios, taken part in art workshops and cookery classes, been on guided walks/hikes, ventured out deep-sea fishing, tried clay pigeon shooting and been out stalking as well as fly fishing on nearby estates. In addition to activities, the owner can arrange for catering at Craiglea Lodge and a personal local top-ranking chef for days or durations of stays at the property. Please just ask the owner for help. Obviously additional fees will apply for anything organised, to be paid to owner/locally.
The accommodation itself is large and spread across two deatched buildings: the Main House and a converted barn. The pool, Jacuzzi and sauna are situated in the Main House. Craiglea Lodge is incredibly versatile and can sleep up twenty people. It’s an excellent choice for a wide range of gatherings, whether family or friend focused.
We urge you to avoid hesitation and book this fantastic place for your holiday and get ready to make some amazing memories in the far north of Scotland with family or friends at Craiglea Lodge.
