Holiday Rental House
Durinish Lodge, Duirinish is near the picturesque fishing village of Plockton. Built in 1936 it is a country house that is perfect for special occasions. Set within 18 acres of magnificent private woodlands and gardens just waiting to be explored, it really offers something a little more special. On entering through the vestibule, the main hallway leads to the principal rooms. The lounge and conservatory form a spacious and grand drawing room that retains a cosy ambience with the log fire blazing. The conservatory offers 180 degree views of the gardens and beyond towards the Isle of Skye, Isle of Raasay and the Bealach na Ba. It has ample seating for all guests and there is a flatscreen TV with Freeview and DVD player. There are two doors leading onto patios on either side, fantastic area...Durinish Lodge, Duirinish is near the picturesque fishing village of Plockton.
