If you are looking for a large holiday house to rent in the Highlands of Scotland, (yet only 90 minutes drive from Edinburgh), this very special mansion house, holiday home of both American Presidents Bush and of members of several Royal families, is elegant and welcoming, with large gardens and grounds. On the site of a tranquil thirteenth century monastic settlement, in the centre of the Estate, with a revolving summer house and ancient walled garden, Brewlands Lodge is ideal for special occasions or family gatherings. A separate 2 bedroom ensuite cottage for staff can be taken with the main Lodge.

Brewlands Lodge is beautifully furnished and comes with a Claridges trained housekeeper for 2 hours every day, enabling you to relax and enjoy being looked after. Our clients love the combination of great comfort, peace, the wealth of wildlife and wild flowers, the full concierge service and the huge variety of activities available both on and off the Estate. Why not play tennis or croquet followed by the hot tub and a massage?
One of Brewlands Lodge’s great advantages is its central position within Scotland, enjoying the best of Highland scenery yet with 14 golf courses (including St Andrews), a 2 star Michelin restaurant, fantastic shopping, the Queen’s Highland home and some of Scotland’s best distilleries within 75 minutes drive, and the World Heritage Site of Edinburgh with its world renowned Edinburgh International Festival, The National Galleries of Scotland and other fascinating sights, within 90 minutes.
Brewlands Lodge is perfect both as a base for a family holiday in Scotland and as a sporting lodge. It is also close to roads which cut north and west through Braveheart Country and the wilder parts of the Scottish Highlands to Loch Ness, the islands, and the places associated with Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald. Distances are not great and we can arrange for a chauffeur to show you some of the secret places tourists usually miss. Whether you prefer a relaxed holiday or an active one, with our extensive local knowledge we will be able to tailor your sightseeing to your own specific interests and requirements. Alternatively, stay put and let us pamper you.
In spring the lengthening days are filled with birdsong. Thousands of daffodils are followed by native bluebells, wild violets, and hillsides covered with foxgloves. Cast your line for the spring run of salmon. In May and June the rhododendrons are in full bloom and we experience glorious lingering twilights when it is perfectly possible to read a newspaper at 11pm. These long days of sun are ideal conditions for the locally grown strawberries and raspberries. Summer turns the heather hills purple: get up at dawn to stalk or let us arrange a picnic complete with tartan rugs overlooking “Pol Gorm” (in Gaelic “the water which reflects the sky”). During the autumn and winter our shooting is at its very best. In January and February the most extensive skiing in Scotland is available in the mountains near by.
