The Stables

Starting life as the original housing for all of the working horses on site at Woodside Lodge it has now been transformed into one of the finest self-catering cottages in the Highlands. Tucked away on the shores of Loch Goil, there are few places in the world where sunsets are as magnificent, and walks are as abundant as they are here. Walk out from The Stables in any direction and face adventure before returning to your private retreat to revel in the tranquillity and achingly beautiful surrounds.

The Stables building was the original stables used by previous owners of The Lodge, the Fergusson family.


Original wood and exposed brick, this proudly authentic yet irresistibly cosy offers you the utmost comfort and class throughout. Head out and about by day and in the evening return to roost. Perfect for warming up after long Highland hikes and Scottish pursuits, the open plan family living / dining room has a dual shower along with a claw-foot bathtub.

The Stables Floorplan


Sat on the water’s edge tucked away next to an array of pine trees, The Stables grounds are a Scottish secret getaway just waiting to be discovered. Settle under the trees for a breakfast picnic, bird-watch across the loch or forage for lunch on the private beach. When the day darkens, cosy up at the side of the cottage for long nights under one of those famous Scottish sunsets, feet nicely toasting by the fire pit.
