There is no doubt that Christmas and the winter holidays may be slightly different for many this year. But at Bearnock Lodge we’ve adapted our accommodation to suit small group bookings. The changes we’ve made mean that we can still offer wonderful family winter breaks in the Highlands of Scotland. Albeit for slightly smaller family groups!
Family Winter Breaks in the Highlands of Scotland:
Winter and the festive season in the Highlands of Scotland is a magical time of year. Read on to discover why you should consider booking a winter getaway at Bearnock Lodge.
Picture Perfect Scenery:
The scenery is always spectacular in the Highlands of Scotland. But come November through to February it’s a veritable winter wonderland. A dusting of snow on the hilltops, glassy lochs and tumbling waterfalls all make for perfect photo opportunities. Don’t forget to pack your winter layers so you can comfortably enjoy the fresh air and fantastic views.
Wander a mile or two down the road, and discover the ruins of Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness. Or explore the walking trails in the Glenurquhart Forest. You may even spot a red squirrel or two!
Rugging-Up for Family Time:
Once you’ve enjoyed your bracing winter walk, warming up is not so hard to do at Bearnock. The Front Wing has a stunning wood-panelled drawing-room with a roaring fireplace. The Rear Wing has a cosy wood-burning stove. And the luxurious Waterfall Cottage is peaceful and secluded. All offer the perfect setting to cosy up as a family and break out the board games.
A Winter Feast:
A family winter break in the Highlands wouldn’t be complete without some delicious Scottish fayre. If you’re keen to support some of the local hospitality businesses check out the “Where to Eat” page where we’ve listed some of our tried and tested options for local dining. Like Bearnock, many have adapted their offerings for COVID times.
All of the small group accommodation options at Bearnock have fully equipped kitchens for self-catering. For some local delicacies, shop online from Robertsons Farm Shop. They offer a ‘click & collect’ service, and are located just a thirty-minute drive from Bearnock.
We are currently offering small group accommodation (for two, four and six persons) at Bearnock Lodge, bookable through to March 2021. So now is the perfect time to book your family winter break in the Highlands of Scotland.
From April 2021 we continue to take large group bookings for the entire lodge.
