About Strath Lodge Glencoe
Strath Lodge Glencoe is a large modern architecturally designed home set in a stunning mountain landscape. Natural materials are combined with neutral tones to create a fabulous home offering a comfortable and relaxing environment. A perfect location to enjoy the mountains and glens, with superb views from the windows of your room. We pride ourselves in our informal approach and like our guests to feel at home. We respect your privacy, but are on hand to help out where needed.
Strath Lodge is located right in the heart of Glencoe and is in a perfect spot to discover Glencoe. Here you can soak up the majesty of the mountain landscape in our quiet location surrounded by mountains all clearly visible from the house and the grounds.
Right from the house, you can see the Pap of Glencoe, Sgorr nam Fiannaidh (the end of the Aonach Eagach ridge), the dramatic west face of Aonach Dubh, the mighty peaks of Stob Coire nan lochan and Bidean nam Bian, along with the other peaks of Stob Coire nam Beith, Meall Mor and Am Meall. They all look down on the house in their imposing manner.
We are often asked by guests whether it is better to hire a car to travel to Glencoe and the Highlands, or use public transport. We think it absolutely essential to hire a car, so that you can get the most out of your visit. Public transport does exist, but it mainly links the main cities and some villages.
Many of our recommended favourite and iconic places to visit, with the best scenic views, are not served by public transport at all. The remote nature of the Highlands means we do not get the same level of public transportation services you may expect in a city.
We are Dawn and Laurence, and are enthusiastic about all things in the great outdoors from trail running, hill walking, sea kayaking or just gazing out at the wonderful scenery. We are both keen ultramarathon runners, so why not bring your running shoes and we can give your our recommendations of some of the finest running trails in the UK.
Dawn is originally from Livingston in the central belt of Scotland and Laurence is a Yorkshire man from York and have been together for 30 years. We have ran and loved meeting people in New Zealand, California, Florida, Italy, France, Spain, the English Lake District and our personal favourite, the West Coast of Scotland. In fact it was so good we gave up work to realise our dream of running a bed and breakfast in our favourite part of Scotland.
When you go on holiday, the majority of travellers want to get the most out of their precious time in an area, and this is where we can help. We have a great knowledge of not only the immediate area, but also further afield across most parts of Scotland and love to share that with others. So whether you are looking for walks, scenic drives, wildlife watching, or just plain old relaxation in a stunning landscape, then we’re more than willing to offer our advice.
