The Wild Side of the Highlands

Welcome to Alladale

Part of National Geographic‘s ‘Best of the World: six places to rediscover nature for 2021 and beyond’, Alladale Wilderness Reserve is your 23,000-acre utopia – located just an hour’s drive north of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. From dramatic glens and colourful hills to glistening rivers and native wildlife, Alladale will capture your heart.

Alladale has three fully catered lodges for exclusive use groups of between 2 and 30 guests. Choose from the comfortable Victorian ‘home from home’ owners property, or be more adventurous and stay at Deanich Lodge, our only self-catered option and probably one of the most remote buildings in Britain.

Our conservation work is well documented and includes extensive native tree planting, peatland restoration, outdoor learning for teenagers, and multiple wildlife projects. Your stay contributes directly to the work of our charity partner The European Nature Trust which supports wildlife and conservation projects across Europe.

We can’t wait to welcome you here.

Expertly managed by the team (..) and we can’t thank them enough for making our brief stay here the most wonderful family holiday we’ve had. (..) The whole holiday has been breathtaking. If you’re considering a stay. Just do it..”
