Welcome to Woodside Lodge…

“Here at our exclusive 5-star estate situated on the edge of Loch Goil we offer Elopement Packages, Luxury Catered Group Stays, Corporate Retreats, Photo Shoots and Escapes. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to our unique and tranquil idyll, here in the Scottish Highlands…”

Iain Hopkins, Host and Owner

Breathtaking Space  

Woodside Lodge, our private estate situated on the edge of the stunning Loch Goil on the West Coast of Scotland consists of 12 acres of mature woodland and open space, offering a perfect combination of a natural setting for contemplation, wellness and relaxation complete with a luxury experience. 

We offer both fully-serviced and self-catered breaks. Bring friends and family to Woodside Lodge and let our team look after you all (in a 5-star way) for the duration of your stay. Or book as a couple or small group and experience a peaceful, self-sufficient retreat. Whichever Escape you book, you will be in good hands.

At the heart of the estate is the main lodge building, one of the finest 5-star venues in Scotland for over 25 years, where we offer our ethos of pure restfulness and total privacy in picturesque and grand surroundings. Surrounded by the main building are our cosy and tranquil outhouses with options to stay in either our romantic Seal Cabin sat on the edge of the water, Glennie Cottage perched on our mountain stream (opening 2024), or the charming and cosy Red Squirrel Cabin.

Memorable Stays 

Woodside Lodge is the ideal location for a special retreat, romantic getaway, grand celebration or simply a place where you can just unwind. With an inspiring selection of unique accommodation in the stunning surroundings, all of which have an amazing outdoor space, we can build your perfect escape.

Woodside Lodge really is a home away from home with all you need for long-lasting memories. Relax in nature, explore woodland and discover new experiences. The main lodge has seven luxurious bedrooms, all individually designed and named after the islands on the west coast of Scotland, the dramatic sitting room and the warm whisky bar all offer period charm for a cosy evening.

The venue is available for exclusive occasions such as weddings, gatherings, corporate events and much more. A big part of our history has been hosting weddings, something we have done for two decades, and we still love it as much as we did when we first started.

Celebrate Local Food & Drink 

Our Residents restaurant in the heart of the lodge serves a mix of heritage British food that is true to local seasons, with a real focus on simple and fresh flavours that are all brought together with our exemplary standards. We were delighted to win the AA’s Restaurant with Rooms Award for 2020, along with two rosettes for culinary excellence. Our Restaurant is only available for private groups (minimum 8) staying overnight at Woodside Lodge and not available to non-residents.

We offer the opportunity to dine in our spectacular dining room, which showcases excellent examples of original Daniel Cottier stained glass windows, hand-painted wallpaper, a roaring Inglenook fireplace, oak walls and parquet floors. A true “last-supper” location.

A big part of our philosophy is to use what we can grow or rear ourselves, or what we can source from local suppliers, which means that only the freshest and most authentic ingredients will end up on your plate. With a kitchen garden as big as the one we have, we think the main star of the show is food. Our Chef Patron creates stunning dishes that will linger in your memory long after your visit.

It doesn’t stop there though, whether you’re after a wee dram late at night or a Bloody Mary pick-me-up in the morning, our mixologists will shake and throw our way to making you your perfect drink.
