Welcome to Reuben’s Highland Retreat, self-catering holiday lodges in two of Scotland’s most desirable locations. If you want the sea and sandy beaches of the West Coast then our Arisaig location is for you. If you prefer woodland walks and forest trails then our Speyside complex just north of Aviemore is the place to be.
Our Arisaig lodges are located two minutes from the Road to the Isles which links Fort William to Mallaig and the ferry to Skye. The lodges sit in a private spot overlooking a sea loch and the ‘Small Isles’ of Rum, Eigg, and Port Mor. The Isle of Skye and its world famous Cuillin Mountains dominate the skyline off the to right of the lodges.
Traditionally named Loch Morar, Loch Ness, and Loch Lomond, the three lodges in Reuben’s Highland Retreat – Arisaig, are the perfect self-catering base to explore the many attractions in the area, including Glenfinnan (made famous by the Outlander TV series), the Glenfinnan Viaduct from the Harry Potter franchise, and the world famous silver sands of Morar. Why not ride the Jacobite Steam Train between Mallaig and Fort William then stop for lunch in one of the many hotels, bars or restaurants before your return journey later in the day. You can also take the 45 minute ferry from Mallaig to Skye and explore the island before returning in the afternoon.
The Speyside properties are located in a magnificent woodland setting around a small lochan in the village of Carrbridge. Formerly part of the Fairwinds Hotel & Chalet complex, the lodges are now under new ownership. Our neighbour is the Landmark Forest Adventure Park which is right next door and Aviemore is 10 minutes away by car. The Spey Valley is a must-visit location packed full of things to do and see. Head up the Cairngorm Mountains, swim in the lochs, ride the zip lines and quad bikes, visit the animals at the Highland Wildlife Park or why not try and spot one of Santa’s reindeer roaming the hills before the next busy Christmas period!
Short breaks to longer holidays, we have it covered.
We look forward to welcoming you to Reuben’s Highland Retreat.
Steven, Claire, & Reuben.
