Doune for couples
Doune Stone Lodges are ideally suited to two people traveling together.
The three Stone Lodge rooms nestle between the hillside and the sea. Rebuilt from the ruins of a cottage which stood empty for 140 years they are traditional in appearance, but modern in comfort. The windows look out over the moored boats and Dun Head, where there are the remains of a pictish, vitrified fort. The view then extends over to Skye and provides fabulous sunsets on a summers evening.
There is a choice of twin or double rooms with ensuite facilities and plenty of space with easy chairs to relax and enjoy the view. Each room has it's own porch and access to the sea-facing decking along the front of the building. There are drying facilities and a second lighting system, for when the generator is not running. (We generate all electricity ourselves).
All holidays are fully catered. Our Stone Lodge guests usually sit together for meals and in the convivial atmosphere of the Dining Room many have made lasting friendships with other couples, even returning for another holiday together.
When choosing something to do; simply walk locally, or make use of our skippered charter boat Gripper which opens up opportunities for walking on all of Knoydart from easy tracks to the more challenging peaks. Our skipper is available every evening to discuss plans for the following day.
If you have an interest in photography, guided hillwalking or visiting the islands and would like to join a guided week then there are opportunities for more focussed Doune holidays. Please just follow the links on the left. These holidays also make use of our fast charter boat Mary Doune and other accommodation Doune Bay Lodge.
