Business Details

Alladale Wilderness Reserve is a 23,000-acre gem in the Scottish Highlands offering a luxury lodge, self catering holiday cottages and a bunkhouse.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve is a 23,000-acre gem in the Scottish Highlands, about 1.5 hours North of Inverness. We work hard to keep this part of Scotland truly wild, by replanting lush forest and reintroducing original Highland plant & animal species. Alladale’s rugged terrain, dramatic glens, colorful hills, glistening rivers, and herds of majestic red deer will take your breath away.

Alladale offers three types of accommodation on site: the luxury Victorian lodge, two comfortable self/catered cottages, and a rustic bunkhouse tucked away deep in the reserve. 7% of our accommodation revenue is transferred to our partner The European Nature Trust. So by staying with us, you will contribute directly to a variety of conservation and restorations efforts throughout Europe.
