About Kinlochmoidart

Built in 1884, Kinlochmoidart House is one of the few remaining original works of the renowned architect William Leiper. Set at the head of Loch Moidart, the estate is surrounded by rugged hills covered by ancient woodlands and hill lochs. Step back to the 19th century and begin your Highland adventure. 

Our remote self-catering cottages each have their own character and style. Whether you're coming for a relaxing getaway, family holiday or solo retreat, let us host you in your home away from home. 

The restoration of Kinlochmoidart House was conducted between 1988 and 1996 and its success was due not only to the many dedicated experts who worked on the House in this period but above all to the outstanding energy and direction of Nino Stewart, pictured above, who frequently acted a foreman while simultaneously catering for a large and fluctuating workforce. Do say hello if you see her during your stay! 

History

The grounds of Kinlochmoidart have been shaped by its past. The Stewart family has owned Kinlochmoidart Estate since 1882, taking great care to honour the heritage and history of the estate to preserve it for many generations to come. We hope that visitors will appreciate the outstanding depth of commitment and sacrifice required to restore a private home in this way over a period of many years. We also hope that visitors, each in their own way, will take pleasure from the enjoyment of Kinlochmoidart's splendidly imaginative House and from their sojourn in one of Scotland's most historic glens.
