Polmaily House, Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands, Scotland

Sleeps 6 - 24 12 Bedrooms 26 Dining

Large holiday house sleeping 24 with an indoor pool, tennis and games area, for family get togethers near Loch Ness

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Polmaily House, Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands, Scotland, sleeps 6 - 24 in 12 bedrooms.

Polmaily House is a beautiful historic home built by the Grant clan back in the late 1720's, making it nearly 300 years old. As a former hotel in a previous life, Polmaily House is unique in Scotland, being able to offer so many facilities to its guests, including exclusive use of the heated indoor swimming pool, tennis court, private cinema room, undercover games area, croquet lawn and brown trout fishing lake. There is so much to keep even the most active happy and that's even before one has left the site to explore the world famous Loch Ness which is just a 3 minute drive away.

Whether you are searching for Nessie, planning an action-packed stay or just seeking rest and relaxation, Polmaily House has it all. Polmaily House would even be perfect if you are planning your own retreat or yoga workshop.

All 12 rooms have recently been refurbished and offer the highest standard in luxury and comfort, yet the house is still cosy and comfortable with guests being drawn to the log fire and the amazing starry nights in winter or the long hours of daylight and array of outdoor activities in the summer.

Up to 24 guests can gather for dinner, a board game or just a chat in the conservatory dining room and can then disperse to the various other reception rooms in the house. Maybe take in a drink in the bar or a movie in the cinema room!

Hosts, Chris & Deb, are happy to help plan your trip and help with ideas for your stay. Quizzes, treasure hunts, pool parties, cocktail tasting, croquet, Highland Games are some of the popular activities, but the list of possible activities is almost endless. An evening meal or an afternoon tea could also be arranged for guests (at an additional charge).

The fantastic Aigas 9 hole golf course is a 20 minute drive away, as is the 'Most beautiful glen in Scotland' - Glen Affric. Inverness offers a host of activities and cultural experiences. But the stars of the show, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle are just over 2 miles from Polmaily. Will you be the next person to spot Nessie??

We look forward to extending the warmest of Highland welcomes. Have a look at our Facebook Page or our website for more information.
