mid December we visited runie lodge, beautiful house we stayed in with perfect scenery and plenty of places to walk dogs and just to go for a walk. It also snowed whilst we were there and made the whole experience very special!
would highly recommend to stay here.
The lodge is warm and well equipped, especially the kitchen. It was frozen outside but lovely inside. The dogs loved the two fires and hikes straight from the door. The humans loved the bath and collecting fresh mussels from the beach. Collected supplies from inverness (Ullapool is limited) and spent Christmas eating, walking and playing trivial pursuits.
Runie Lodge is better than pictured! It has everything you could possibly need, set in some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The river right outside the garden is great to play in after a day of exploring. Only a short distance from Ullapool with a variety of restaurants, shops and atmosphere. And we can't say enough about the hosts. Di and Rick are the best, from the goodies left in the lodge, knowledge and advice of the area, to the friendship. We can't wait to come back. We definitely give them 5 stars!
The house is spacious, cosy, with a nice livingroom with fireplace, there is a lovely full equiped kitchen and upstairs 3 very beautyful bedrooms and a lovely bathroom. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly. You have stunning view from all the rooms. You can do wonderful walks near the house, and driving around, you will be constantly amazed by the Highland mountains, the coast and the nearby isles.
It was my daughter and son in law’s first trip to Scotland. I was here in Ullapool to attend a four month art course and wanted them to understand why here and not Brighton, 20 minutes from home.
They got it!! We had a lovely stay and were warm and cosy and enjoyed being in such a lovely and well equipped house.
