Kildermorie Estate generates its own electricity, harnesses burn and spring water, and succeeds in making minimal impact on the ecosystem of the area (ECOSYSTEM). The estate attracts those who seek a natural but well-managed environment, the delight of seeing clear night skies full of stars, and a tranquil location, all enjoyed from the comfort of an historic building with incorporated 21st Century essentials such as pure drinking water, central heating and en suite bathrooms with a constant supply of hot and cold water.

The following pictures and text aim to draw out the essence of Kildermorie as an attractive and versatile venue.


MEALL MOR LODGE

The Facts

There are ten Bedrooms, five double and five twin, each with an en suite bathroom.

One of the eight upstairs bedrooms has a kitchenette - ideal for a couple with a baby - and an additional entrance; one of the two ground floor bedrooms is equipped for the disabled and the adjacent room can be linked via an ante-room to make a two-bedroom suite if requested.

The principal rooms on the ground floor are the reception hall and the dining room.

A servery leads from the dining room to the kitchen which contains a full range of kitchen appliances including a commercial 2-oven cooker and grill, a microwave and dishwasher, plus a separate fridge/chiller/freezer area and a cold store.

The boot room has ample hanging space and is equipped with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Three separate w.c.s, a gun room and a covered entrance area housing the log store and barbeque wagon complete the ground floor.

The first floor is reached by a carved pine staircase which was reclaimed from the old Kildermorie Lodge (HISTORY). The drawing room is located at the top of the staircase between the two bedroom wings, and a separate w.c. is nearby.

House Style

Meall Mor Lodge house style is a blend of old and new. Much of the furniture came from the original Kildermorie Lodge which was furnished by James Shoolbred & Co. in the last quarter of the 19th Century. Other furnishings, including the Broadwood boudoir grand piano in the drawing room came from the owners’ former family home in Buckinghamshire when they moved to Kildermorie.

With log fires available in both the drawing room and reception hall, drinks facilities including a small fridge in the drawing room and full central heating, the scene is set for a relaxing holiday at Meall Mor Lodge.

Internet

Meall Mor Lodge is equipped with Wi-Fi. Included in the tariff is a data allowance of 1GB per night's booking; after consumption of this allowance, data usage is charged at the satellite broadband supplier’s published rate.

Outdoors

To the north of Meall Mor Lodge is a large parking area for the use of guests, with easy access to newly constructed kennels. A traditional stone wall separates the car park from the adjacent ground, where deer from the woodland come to graze.

The south-facing U-shaped courtyard is a sheltered sun-trap, and when food is ready from the barbeque the two monolithic sandstone tablets are to hand for drinking, dining, seating or even sunbathing.

Originally a coach house and stable block for the principal house, the building’s conversion to guest accommodation was achieved with particular emphasis on retaining the integrity of the exterior of the building, with its gabled chimney features, wide door openings and arched stable entrance.

Housekeeping

Bed linen, towels, toiletries, china, glass, cutlery and kitchen equipment and utensils are provided for the use of Meall Mor Lodge guests, and the daily housekeeping service included in the tariff ensures the smooth running of the lodge.

Catering

Catering is provided according to requirements and is charged separately; the lodge may either be fully catered by recommended cooks or self-catered by prior arrangement. Also a well-known supermarket will deliver groceries to the estate, and there are local companies who deliver fully prepared meals for those parties requiring occasional catering assistance. If separate accommodation is required for the cook, this can be arranged at extra charge.

Dogs

Dogs and other pets are not allowed in Meall Mor Lodge, but new kennels are available nearby by prior arrangement at a cost of £15.00 incl. VAT per kennel per week.
