Highland lodge sleeping up to 16, with flexible catering, for celebrations and group get aways to the Outer Hebrides

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Grogarry Lodge, Isle of South Uist, Outer Hebrides, Scotland, sleeps 6-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Grogarry Lodge is a Nineteenth Century hunting lodge on the island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides. The Lodge sits between the majestic Ben Mòr and 20 miles of blinding white sand beaches. Eagles swoop and soar from the towering 2,200 ft peak over hills and lochs where a wild herd of pure Red Deer graze on the heather.

Accommodation is offered on an exclusive use and fully serviced basis that is difficult to find in the modern world, for parties of 10 to 16 people. It can also be hired as self-catering accommodation or booked for large functions and family events. For smaller groups, there is non-exclusive use. Surrounded by the breathtaking Outer Hebridean landscape, there are few better locations for an unforgettable group holiday.

Though the precise date of construction is not known, Grogarry Lodge was originally built by the Laird of the Long Island Estate in the early 19th Century. The Lodge was acquired by a community-owned company after the local community bought out the estate in 2005, and is now being managed and developed in concert with their economic regeneration efforts. Nevertheless, the Lodge still provides a taste of the Highland Laird experience: mixing a traditional island experience with the renowned Hebridean hospitality. Our catering makes use of the world-renowned Outer Hebridean cuisine, including lobsters, scallops, venison, salmon and more.

Lovers of wildlife and the outdoors will never want of things to see and do, as the Lodge is located in minutes walking distance of both a nature reserve and a mile-long white sand beach, of the kind that the Outer Hebrides is famed for. We also can arrange for salmon and trout fishing as well as a few rounds at the world-famous Askernish Golf Course.

The island is a stronghold of the Gaelic language. You are sure to hear it being spoken when visiting the shops, pubs or cafes. Traditional music plays a central role in many islanders' lives, there are always dances, concerts and recitals taking place somewhere and newcomers are always welcomed to attend. The Lodge itself serves as a perfect venue for ceilidhs, and dances.
