This impressive lodge dates back to the 1880s and oozes history, having played host to Queen Victoria as well as appeared on historical series such as ‘The Crown’ and ‘The Queen’. On arrival, winding your way up the single track road through pine forests you will instantly feel a million miles away from reality… feel those shoulders relax. The landscape here is breath-taking from every angle, with the lodge overlooking the Bens mountains at the far end of the Glen, the Glen itself with its wide river bed and the Salmon rich River Feshie floating by below the greens around the lodge. Over 5,000 species have been recorded here, of which 20% are ‘Nationally Rare’ yet call Glenfeshie their home. This awe-inspiring lodge is the place for celebration, adventure and embracing the true beauty of Mother Nature.
