Golden era of the “Glorious Twelfth”


Drynachan Lodge - Holiday Vacation rental at Cawdor Estate

Golden era of the “Glorious Twelfth”

In Drynachan Valley stands our luxurious 12-bedroom traditional Highland lodge. Guests are spoilt with views of the River Findhorn, wooded valleys and long stretches of blue skies.

Arrive at Drynachan Lodge and you’ll travel back in time to the golden era of the “Glorious Twelfth”. You’ll still see reminders of times gone by, like the charcoal drawings and ‘scorecards’ carved into the woodwork in the dining room.

The lodge has two receptions and twelve bedrooms (ten doubles, one single and a twin). All with touches of luxury – king and queen-sized beds, original iron baths, decorative fireplaces and more.

Our chef will prepare a feast every evening. So work up an appetite with a trip to Loch Ness or a round of golf at Castle Stuart Golf Course.
