Reconnect and Unwind in the Scottish Highlands

Reconnect and Unwind in the Scottish Highlands

Escape to a Highland Hideaway

As I gaze out over the serene Loch Duich, the iconic Eilean Donan Castle standing guard in the distance, a sense of tranquility washes over me. I’m nestled in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, surrounded by the rugged beauty of the Kintail Mountains, and I couldn’t feel more at peace. This is the Hill House, a modern-day sanctuary that pays homage to the traditional Scottish shielings that once dotted the hillsides.

Hill House is a true gem in the crown of the Scottish Highlands, a place where I can escape the stresses of everyday life and reconnect with nature. As I step inside, I’m immediately struck by the earthy, Scandinavian-inspired design that seamlessly blends with the surrounding landscape. The panoramic windows frame the breathtaking views, inviting me to sit back, relax, and let my worries melt away.

Embrace the Simple Pleasures

One of the things I love most about the Hill House is its commitment to simplicity. The luxurious suites, with their plush superking mattresses and 600 thread-count cotton sheets, provide the ultimate in comfort, while the hand-crafted furniture and soft wool blankets create a cozy, inviting atmosphere. But it’s the little details that really make this place special – the in-room stone bathtubs with a view, the walk-in monsoon showers, and the organic bath products from L:A Bruket that leave my skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

As I step outside, I’m drawn to the outdoor decking and firepit, where I can sit and watch the sun dip below the Kintail Mountains, casting a warm glow over the loch. The wood-burning stove inside beckons me to curl up with a good book and a steaming mug of tea, while the fully fitted kitchen and separate laundry room make it easy to settle in and make myself at home.

Embrace the Great Outdoors

Of course, no visit to the Scottish Highlands would be complete without exploring the great outdoors. And the Hill House is the perfect base from which to do just that. Wester Ross, the region surrounding the Hill House, is a true outdoor lover’s paradise, with miles of hiking trails, pristine lochs, and breathtaking mountain vistas.

I set out on a hike through the Kintail Forest, my boots crunching on the fallen leaves as I climb higher and higher. The views from the top of the hill are simply breathtaking, with the Loch Duich sparkling in the distance and the Eilean Donan Castle standing proud on its rocky outcrop. I take a moment to catch my breath and drink in the beauty of my surroundings, feeling a sense of awe and wonder that only the Scottish Highlands can inspire.

Savour the Local Flavours

Of course, no visit to the Scottish Highlands would be complete without experiencing the local cuisine. And the Hill House does not disappoint, with a complimentary hamper filled with delicious, artisanal products from the surrounding area. I savor the rich, creamy cheese, the homemade jams and chutneys, and the freshly baked bread, all while sipping on a warming dram of local whisky.

As I sit on the outdoor deck, watching the sun dip below the horizon, I can’t help but feel a sense of gratitude for this hidden gem in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. The Hill House has truly become a sanctuary for me, a place where I can escape the stresses of everyday life and reconnect with the natural world.

Connecting with Loch Ness Shores

And as I plan my next visit to the Scottish Highlands, I know that I’ll be returning to the Hill House time and time again. But I’m also excited to explore other hidden gems in the region, like the Sky House, another stunning property that promises to transport me to a world of tranquility and wonder.

So if you’re looking to reconnect and unwind in the Scottish Highlands, I highly recommend a visit to the Hill House or one of the other Loch Ness Shores properties. It’s a trip that will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and deeply connected to the natural beauty of this stunning region.
