Whether it is a cosy little retreat near the centre of Aviemore, or a large country lodge with views down to the river, we have a holiday home that you are sure to fall in love with. However, don't take our word for this please visit our Reviews Page!
Each Handpicked Lodge is unique and full of character. As our guests, you can enjoy them as a warm and welcoming home from home during your Highland holiday.
We provide you with a uniquely personal service from checking every lodge prior to each guest's arrival, to negotiating great deals for you with other local businesses.

We hope you have a truly wonderful holiday in our very special part of the world. We look forward to welcoming you to your handpicked lodge!
"What can I say? Everything about the house was perfect! 2 families and grandparents so enjoyed their time here. From making amazing dens in the woods to lakeland walks. The steam train at the end of the garden just added to it! The children were enthralled. We are all so sad to be going home. Thank you. "

"We had a fantastic week at Trails End Lodge. The superb weather meant we could make the most of the walks in the area. Enjoyed the variety of scenery from mountains, to lochs and forests. We have been so impressed with the standard of accommodation we have already booked a return visit at another of your properties in the summer! Cant wait! "
