Great North Lodges are a group of traditional & luxury self catering lodges.



The Great North Lodges Group are all hand picked, privately owned Highland holiday properties. We cater for all tastes, party sizes and budgets. From the fabulous Highland Lodge Estate, Big Husky Lodge and Mountain Bear Lodge (simply the best self-catering property in Scotland, if not the UK.) To the humble and cosy Twa Hoots Lodge in Aviemore - Something for everyone!!!


Great North Lodges are set in fantastic locations, throughout the Spey Valley, within the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland. Great North Lodges Ltd is a small, select boutique agency who only deal with these individually owned holiday properties on behalf of the Lodge Owners. We have been creating magical Highland Holidays in this fantastic area of Scotland for over 25 years, so please email or telephone us, as the first step to your next wonderful holiday experience.



Most of our lodges have log fires and fantastic outside Hot Tubs, many have luxury extras, including Saunas, Sky TV, Wi-Fi Internet access and much much more.


Many people dream of the highlands ... Great North Lodges turn the dream into reality.

**Good Housekeeping Bond: The Good Housekeeping Bond is a security bond made between the client (Principal Renter) and the property owner, which is taken on the understanding that the client will take care of and cause no damage to the property rented during their stay. the principal renter agrees that the Good Housekeeping Bond may either be debited from a Credit card at the time of final settlement payment or that any damages costs incurred can be debited from the Credit card used to make final payment up to an amount not exceeding the limit indicated on the Web page for each property. Great North Lodges also undertakes to return the Good Housekeeping Bond (or balance there-of) with in 14 days of vacation or satisfaction of any remedial works required to meet the renters obligations in respect of the condition of the property (whichever is the later). We regret the Bond service is not available on a Debit card.
