Dating back to 1893, the award winning Glenshieling House & Lodge which is rated as a high scoring 4 Star operation through Visitscotland has been owned and operated by our clients since December 2014. On taking over the business the vendors embarked on a comprehensive refurbishment programme throughout the main house and lodge.
With a considerable six figure sum spent on the development, the vendors of Glenshieling House & Lodge have created something really special. From entering through the gates and heading up the sweeping driveway, you are instantly aware of the charm and sophistication of Glenshieling House. On entering the main house, you are welcomed by a most welcoming homely ambiance and it does not take long to fully appreciate the level of investment and attention to detail that has clearly been made by the vendors.
With tasteful design and decoration accompanied by high quality fixtures and fittings, quality runs throughout Glenshieling House & Lodge.
From the welcoming hallway with traditional sweeping staircase to the bright and airy lounge and dining room to the cosy bar with baby grand piano which enjoys views over the magnificent private gardens, to each of the 4 (5) luxuriously appointed letting bedrooms, a great deal of focus and effort has been placed on the guest experience which has resulted in a high level of repeat and referred trade enjoyed at the business.
In addition, the vendors have only recently completed the refurbishment of the 5-star self-catering lodge. By completely stripping out & redesigning the internal layout of the lodge, and fitting out to an equally high standard as the main house, our clients have created a magnificent high quality self-catering lodge that caters for the modern traveller looking for quality 5-star self-catering. Sitting at the bottom of the garden and boasting a separate road side entrance to the lodges garden area, the two bedroomed Lodge sleeps four comfortably.
