I offer a warm welcome to you all.
Glengynack Lodge was originally a single storey cottage called Gaich Cottage built around 400 years ago. In 1889 the then current owner William McBean had the plans drawn up for the new 5 bedroom two storey house you now see.
As you can see on the plans below the uppper floor had 5 bedrooms, a press room and NO bathroom. The ground floor had a parlour, sitting room and kitchen with a scullery off it and a closet and a WC. It was a much grander house than the original and has very detailed instructions for all the tradesmen, including the mason, the carpenter, slater, plumber and plasterer.
Since then there has been a further kitchen extention to the Lodge about 30 years ago, the bedrooms have decreased, now only 3 but offereing more space and all with ensuite. The old kitchen and scullery have been replaced by the owners quarters and a garage and workshop have been built. At the time of the kitchen extention a detached single storey cottage was erected within the grounds. The Lodge was run as a guest house many years ago, it ceased to trade when the cottage became the residence of the then owners parents and was reverted back to residential.
And so I come to me, after spending a hectic 8 years living in Holland I traded it for the quiet and beautiful Cairngorms National Park and came to Scotland . The Lodge is currently being renovated and will be open for the next season, the Cottage is now complete and has been totally refurbished throughout. Every attention will be paid in making sure your stay is as comfortable as possible and most memorable, I do hope you enjoy visiting with us.
