Awarded Visit Scotland 5 stars, this grand home dates back to 1865 and was extended in the 1900s.
Bearnock Lodge retains all its original features, including oak panelling and oak flooring in the drawing room, detailed plasterwork, stripped flooring, a bay window and a period fireplace in the dining room. There are period fireplaces in most rooms and internal doors that have been painstakingly stripped and restored.
The entrance vestibule gives access to the wood-panelled drawing room with a fireplace at either end and double doors lead to a sitting room with a bay window. The formal staircase leads to a large upper hall with feature decorative arches and an abundance of natural light from skylights.
This is the perfect location for that special celebration or holiday and a cook and housekeeper can be arranged.
Bearnock Lodge sits in 4 acres of land. There are formal gardens to the south and west of the property, and there is a former lawn-tennis court. The remainder of the grounds are well stocked with a variety of native trees and there is a walled garden and waterfall.
Close by is the Glenurquhart forest and mountain bike trails. About five miles to the west is Cannich, which leads to the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve where there are lovely walks through ancient Caledonian pinewoods and across open moorland, providing the opportunity to enjoy all sorts of wildlife and unspoilt splendour. Also close by at Corrimony are chambered cairns and an RSPB bird reserve.
Glen Urquhart itself stretches from the banks of Loch Ness westward towards the mountains of Glen Affric – a beautiful wooded glen with lochs and river that greatly rewards exploration on foot, cycle or horseback.
