One of the beauties of Bearnock Lodge is that it is a family home at heart. It was initially built as a summer home and shooting lodge for a London-based family in the 1860s. Since then, it passed through several families before the Sutherland family purchased the property in the summer of 2009. The Sutherlands continue to use the home when they can, but they also rent the property so others can enjoy the benefits of large family holidays in Scotland.
About the House:
Bearnock Lodge has everything you need to enjoy large family holidays in Scotland. First and foremost, it has space and can sleep up to twenty people. The main house has eight bedrooms (sleeping sixteen). But in addition to this, there is a two-bedroom cabin in the garden, which accommodates a further four guests. The nearby Waterfall apartment, situated within the grounds of Bearnock Lodge, can also be booked to sleep an additional two people.
But there is also space to have fun and reconnect. There are two informal open-plan living areas, both with a kitchen, dining area and sitting areas. As well as a more formal grand dining room and a spacious sitting room with cosy open fires for family gatherings.
The bar room is great for relaxing with a TV and a bar billiards table.
The beautiful grounds surrounding the property include patio areas for alfresco dining. There’s also a children’s play area for the little family members.

Creating Traditions and Family Rituals:
Large family holidays can become a treasured tradition in themselves. Families can establish rituals and customs unique to their Scottish holidays. It might be gathering for a special meal, participating in local events, an annual billiard championship (and you’re never too young to start) , or simply sharing stories and experiences around a cosy fireplace. These traditions can be carried on from generation to generation, fostering a sense of family identity and continuity.
