The Sitting Room

To make you feel truly at home, the sitting room includes the ever-popular ‘maxi-bar’ with a choice of malt whiskies, spirits wines, beers, soft drinks and snacks. So, select a drink of your choice and settle down to catch up on a film or two on the 3D television and DVD player with the glow of the wood burning fire in the background. Alternatively, the in-suite iPod, with its 19,000 tracks, allows you to reminisce with old favourites or delve into new music genres.
The stove is the centre piece of the kitchen and gives a homely feel. Fancy a coffee, just reach for the Nespresso coffee machine. There is also a range of teas to tempt you. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with a range of breakfast goodies. Just open the fridge to reveal Scottish smoked salmon and salami together with the ingredients for a full Scottish breakfast. Then just prepare and cook your breakfast, all at a time of your pleasing and remember no-one will know if you are still in your pyjamas at lunch time! Alternatively, sit back and let the chef take care of the cooking by booking a table in the Great Hall for a sumptuous breakfast at £12.50 per person (must be booked by 6pm the previous evening subject to availability).
Each suite also has luxury picnic basket if lunch on the move takes your fancy. For those little practicalities, the kitchen has integrated dishwasher and washing machine although all suites are cleaned and served daily.
Dinner is flexible, either pre-book a table in the Great Hall of Glencoe House for a formally served candle lit 5 course dinner, or, relax in your suite and delve into your fully stocked kitchen which is full of delights. Choose from a wide range of pre-prepared gourmet meals and simply slip them into the oven and choose your accompanying wine or drinks from our ever-popular maxi bar.
The bathroom is located on the ground floor. Light the candles and slip into the bath for a relaxing soak. You may even put a bottle of champagne into the ice bucket that is located conveniently next to the bath for pure decadence. The bathroom also has a Hansgrohe raindance shower, which has a range of luxury toiletries provided. The room has a WC and Villeroy and Boch handwash basin with Penhalgion products for your enjoyment.

The Private Terrace
On entering Strathcona Lodge No.9 you are immediately struck by the size of the terrace, which faces West for the afternoon sun. The terrace has an outside dining area for alfresco dining should the weather allow and also a hot tub, which is great no matter the weather. In fact, many say that the best time to jump in the hot tub is on a clear winters evening so that you can stargaze in style.
