Altnaharra Hotel


This Highland retreat fulfills many people's dream: a warm, welcoming place where you can sip drinks by a crackling fire after an active day in the beautiful wilderness.

What makes a stay at Altnaharra Hotel unique?

The Altnaharra Hotel is a 14-bedroom property that delivers this by staying true to its 200-year-old tradition as one of the finest Scottish leisure and fishing lodges, exploiting its location amongst flowing rivers and the bluest of lochs. It's perfect if you love the outdoors: go for long scenic walks, take advantage of the hotel's mountain bikes and cycle around the hills or let Altnaharra arrange horse-riding treks on the beach for you. At the end of the day, retire to the clean and comfortable rooms, decked out with traditional tartan fabrics and boasting stunning loch and countryside views.
