Accommodations

Where you’ll stay

Spacious 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom lodges with private terraces (many with private saunas) and fully equipped kitchens.

On November 2, 2020, a new five-level system will be implemented, in which local authorities will assign restrictions based on a local area’s COVID-19 protection level. ​The UK government also announced a leisure travel ban in England starting on November 5 until December 2, 2020, consisting of a second nationwide lockdown that bans domestic and international leisure travel. People from more than one household (or extended household) must not stay in a self-catered accommodation together while the current restrictions on indoor private gatherings are in place. ​The Scottish government requires that face coverings are worn in certain indoor areas. Limited exemptions apply. ​Travelers arriving in Scotland from outside the United Kingdom are required to self-isolate for 14 days. A list of exempt countries and territories is available on the Scottish government website. For more information, please see Pre-arrival tips below. Pool areas and other amenities, such as gyms, will be open wherever city, region or other local jurisdictions allow, and following social distancing and sanitation guidelines. We greatly appreciate your patience during this time. Hours of operations for restaurants at each of the Scotland properties will vary based on new protocols established as part of HGV’s Enhanced Care Guidelines. Please contact the resort for more information or the front desk for food and beverage options during your stay.

"Staying at this resort was the highlight of our UK trip. The unit we had overlooked nature and had all of the amenities you'd want. The area is gorgeous. Plus, you can get an assortment of freshly baked breads and pastries every day."
