Great accommodation in a great location, we explored all round the highlands from here as far up to John O Groats and Dunnet Head and across to Ullapool ... we did lots in our week here. The log cabin was so cosy once we got the wood burner on, with free wood available. Our only criticism was there was no...

I would just like to thank Ailsa and Big Sky Lodges for our recent stay. The mountain lodge was absolutely faultless and had everything you'd need and more. All the little touches such as fresh milk, the log burner set, tea cakes and many more made us feel very welcomed and added to our great experience with Big Sky. We...

The only aspect I believe could do with improvement is the cleaning. There had obviously been a dog staying the visit previous to us and there were fluff balls everywhere, not great for allergies and 3 small children. There was a wee welcome pack of tea, coffee and hot chocolate which was an added addition from our previous visits. Much...

Thank you for taking the time to review Big Sky lodges. Our cleaners usually work very hard to ensure that all lodges are cleaned to a high standard so please accept my apologies that on this occasion we didn't do so well. We always hope that our guests feel that they can get in touch with us during their stay...

February/March in Scotland could have been bleak!, not in Wildcat Lodge!. It felt so pleasant just to be there with sightseeing outside the window, tree creepers, kites, cattle, big sky and mountains. Heating & lights on to welcome us, all the thoughtful touches and lack of 'Do Not' notices made it feel so homely. Enough space to be private from...

Our first visit to Big Sky Lodges in 2017, was as always excellent. Lovely and warm on arrival and immaculately clean. Every single thing about these lodges rates as excellent. The Trip Advisor 'Certificate of Excellence' is well deserved. As always we were sad to leave, but are already looking forward to our next visit in a few weeks :-)

We have just spent a Fantasic week in Wildcat Lodge which has got to have been the most luxurious lodge we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. It is just as good , if not better , than it looks in all the photos on the website. The log burner is a brilliant extra and makes for very...

Big Sky Lodges is a collection of beautiful luxury Scandinavian Lodges set in stunning landscape in the Scottish Highlands.Big Sky Lodges is a family run business which offers six warm and cosy log cabins in Scotland, each one unique with plenty of homely touches to make it a special place. Wood burning stoves, original art work, stylish furniture and walks in the woods next to the lodges. Whether you're searching for a romantic break, a family week away, or just a chance to escape from it all, then hopefully you'll find a lodge to suit you.Set on 17 acres of traditional Scottish croft land Big Sky has fantastic views over birch woodland and open fields grazed by horses and highland cattle. Ideally situated just ten miles from Inverness with its international airport, and near to Loch Ness, you won’t find a better or more relaxing base to explore the whole of the highlands. On the very doorstep is some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland.Inside, our log cabins are relaxed and comfortable, with wood burning stoves, solid pine floors, wood lined rooms, full central heating and comfy and stylish furniture. The log cabins all have three bedrooms with two or three bathrooms and open plan living with fully fitted kitchens. Whether you are reading on the deep leather sofas next to the wood burning stove or enjoying the evening sun on the veranda there is always a perfect spot to relax in. ... more   less
