More information about Culkein Lodge

Property information

It is hard to imagine a more beautiful location than this remote and staggeringly picturesque setting on the north west coast of Scotland.

Deer roam the land around and otters and seals swim in the water in front of the house. The location is idyllic and the quality of accommodation superb.

Culkein Lodge has been recently refurbished in summer 2015 and transformed into a gorgeous and luxurious waters-edge lodge, suitable for holidays throughout the year. New shower, kitchen, central heating and bathrooms will be much appreciated by those who loved Culkein Lodge before but were less enamoured of the temperamental water system! All gone now!

The kitchen has slate floors and marble worktops and is fully equipped with all facilities. The dining table can seat eight very comfortably.

This coastline is noted for its magnificent scenery and pristine, sandy beaches backed by what are regarded as some of the most stunning mountains in Scotland. Canoeing is possible in this quiet inlet and boats can be launched from outside the house.

Drumbeg has a hotel with bar open to the public, and there is one of the finest seafood restaurants in Scotland 20 minutes' drive away in Kylesku, from where boat trips leave to see the famous Eas a Chual Aluinn waterfall at the head of Loch Glencoul. Drumbeg also has a great wee tea and bacon roll takeaway cake called 'Flossies' and a Tiny Tea Shop and gift shop too.

Visitor comments

  • Joan
    Fantastic week at the start of April, only problem was that it went too fast. House was great, spent a lot of time sitting in front of the windows with the binoculars watching the seals putting on a show. Several good coastal walks from, or near to the house. Do order some fresh prawns from Mr MacLeod as recommended on the sheet in the house - they were delicious and great value. Equally good were the pies from the Bistro in Lochinver. We have a huge amount of photos especially of the mountains in the snow. Great week - many thanks
  • Wendy Shilito
    We had a fabulous time at Culkein Lodge. The house was exceptionally well appointed and very comfortable. I appreciated the beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds;the youngsters the table football and the Sky TV. Be prepared for the fact that the house is on the end of a scenic road so we had several visitors driving past the house only to turn around again - so not quite as private as you first think. The roads are breathtakingly scenic but quite tricky to negotiate. Local dining out within reasonable range of the house- bearing in mind the roads - is limited to the local pub, and we enjoyed our meal there. I advise booking in advance! I loved the tea rooms/ candle shop. If you arrive on a Saturday, I advise stocking up at Ullapool or Lochinver as the only shop in Drumbeg closes on Sat at 5pm and opens on Monday. Drumbeg stores were everything you would want from a local village shop and deserve their award winning status. The housekeper was very helpful and the house spotless. All in all a great place in a magical setting.
  • Laura Smith
    Our stay at Culkein Lodge was one of the most wonderful holidays my family have had and completely surpassed our expectations. The setting of the house is as incredible as the pictures suggest. The dual aspect is fantastic. The quiet bay in front of the house was perfect for my small children to play along and they loved watching fishermen leave and arrive at the jetty, while the coastline behind the house is the most magnificent stretch of wild open ocean and amazing for watching sea birds. The house is extremely comfortable and the luxury bedding was particularly appreciated after a day outside! The remote feel of Drumbeg Culkein hits you immediately and the spectacular drive from Lochinver is the best possible start to any holiday. We spent our journey home planning our next visit.
  • Terry Walford
    My wife and I stayed at Culkein Lodge during our honeymoon and have fallen in love with it. The Lodge is fantastic and the surrounding area is simply breathtaking. The icing on the cake for us was sitting in the bay during the evening watching the seals. The Clashnessie beach is the best beach I have seen with crystal clear water lapping along clean white sand. Add to this that we were the only ones there for most of the day (but may be worth reminding that this is the North Atlantic....very very cold if you decide to take a dip). We loved our time here so much we will be back for our anniversary (if its not already booked).
  • Scott Shepherd
    This is one of the best houses we have rented in Scotland. The location is perfect and the house is superb. The kids had a wonderful time. The first night we watched the sunset as a seal played in the harbour less than 20 feet away. The local beaches at Clachtoll and Clashnessie were fabulous for body boarding and swimming. Although we went in October the water was still warm enough for watersports. The walk to Sandwood Bay is worth all the effort. This place is a photographers dream, the air is so clear and the photo ops are incredible. My only note of caution - I have a vw minibus which, when fully laden would not have made the hills on the road from the A894. I was fortunate to have come in via the coast road from Lochinver.
