Glencoe House occupies 10 acres of private woodland and manicured gardens in the Scottish Highlands. Ideally situated for outdoor adventures and explorations, guests will feel right at home in this secret Highlands hideaway.
Glencoe House was constructed in 1896 for Lord Strathcona, Donald Alexander Smith, a Scotsman who found fortune in Canadian industry. The 20th-century witnessed the home’s conversion into a military hospital, its use as a maternity ward, and later as a home for the elderly. Generations of locals have seen family come and go through the estate, and its bricks and mortar are cherished by the community.
This fondness for Glencoe House certainly resonates within its walls. Its great hall entryway is warmed by a marble fireplace and the original details of an intricate plaster ceiling and oak floors hum with history. The estate’s accommodations comprise just seven suites, each with its own distinct floor plan and a view out over the gardens, woodlands, Glencoe Mountains, and Loch Leven.
All eight suites include an original wood-burning fireplace, detailed ceilings, wood finishes, and furnishings that echo the home’s history. Suites are available in one or two bedroom options, accommodating two to four guests, and include a large sitting room with plenty of room to spread out.
The sitting room also serves as your own private dining room. Delicious meals at Glencoe House are completely catered within your suite, from local and continental-style breakfasts to full five-course meals and locally-sourced seafood selections. The staff is happy to pack you a hearty lunch to take while engaging in adventures beyond the resort. Return for afternoon tea and cake as a reward for your activity, and allow the staff to arrange a massage therapy to soothe and restore.
Guests of Glencoe House will find themselves in prime position within the Scottish Highlands—”The Outdoor Capital of the UK”—and close to a wealth of outdoor activities. The Glencoe Mountains can be seen from the estate and provide a backdrop for all of your explorations. Depending on the season, skiing, climbing, and water sports are also possible in the area.
