Hunting lodge to luxury guest house
Built long ago, Pool House has seen many occupants come and go.
It has changed quite a bit over the years, extensions here and alterations there, but this time things are different, renovated to the height of its former glory and lovingly looked after.
Here you'll discover accommodation rarely found in the Highlands or in fact anywhere in Scotland. Pool House reflects a passion for eclectic opulence. Every suite has been lovingly themed and furnished with antiques and curios from around the world. Many rooms have been painstakingly hand painted and gilded, all of which reveals the depth of regard the family have for the house.
Your bedroom will be furnished with an eclectic mix of proper antique furniture and contemporary pieces. Each room has a deliciously squidgy sofa or two armchairs and some have working fireplaces. It’s everything you’d expect of a boutique hotel with all the comfort of a real family country house. It will be your home as well as ours.
We regret that as Pool House is a historic building we are unable to provide disabled access.
We have a wonderful collection of single malts, including some especially fine and rare examples that are beautifully displayed in this room. With its full-size, antique billiard table, leather seating and Victorian piano, the decor and atmosphere are reminiscent of a late 19th century gentleman's club.
Expansive views across Loch Ewe make this room perfect for a spot of bird, seal or otter watching. Alternatively, cosy up in front of the fire with a book from our library.
Dine beneath a ceiling bejewelled with hundreds of hand-painted stars and enjoy the sunset over Loch Ewe. Our award-winning breakfast menu should prepare you for a day touring the local area, and you should find the perfect complement to your evening meal on our extensive wine list.
Our suite at the top of the house. Light, airy, a tranquil haven adorned with silks, hand-painted walls and French antiques.

For a truly unique experience, try our most exotic suite on an Oriental theme. It features an intricately carved Chinese marriage bed, a private balcony overlooking Loch Ewe, a Victorian canopied bath with large overhead shower and side sprays, and is opulently decorated with hand-painted walls, rich jewel coloured fabrics, satins and silks.
Our single accommodation, accessed through the garden, is lavishly decorated on an Indian theme. It includes a two poster bed, luxurious marble bath, walk in shower with side sprays, an abundance of Indian antiques and vibrant, hand-painted walls.
From our chivalric reception area with hand-painted crusaders to our art-rich corridors adorned with the stunning landscapes of artist John Watling, Pool House is a "visual feast for the senses" - Scotland on Sunday.
Our garden on the shoreline offers plenty of colour during the warmer months, while our potager provides the kitchen with fresh herbs, salad leaves, berries and orchard fruit. Exclusive use guests also have the option of dining in the cosy BBQ hut.
