The Lodge

What to expect from the Mountain Grange

Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Scottish Highlands, Mountain Grange offers a sophisticated getaway for families and discerning small groups that wish to enjoy the peaceful environment of the Cairngorm Mountain Range, carefully bringing together fun and nature in a respectful manner. The Mountain Grange has recently undergone a large refurbishment programme, where the owners have enhanced the lodge to cater for our valued clients, bringing a fresh approach to this unique, historical property.

The lodge itself dates back to the 18th century when it was inhabited by the Grant family. Duncan Grant was a stonemason, turned farmer, who had built many of the big houses in Boat of Garten including the rebuild of ‘The Lagg’ (now Mountain Grange) itself.

Duncan and his wife Isobella’s youngest son, Alexander, was born in 1921 and he would live and work in The Lagg well into his 90’s.  Alexander had always wanted to be a farmer and in an era where horse and plough were a common sight, it was a natural step for him to work full time on the farm from the age of 15 years and during the war years, the Lagg of Drumuillie offered a place of safety to the Duncan’s family who lived in Glasgow.

Alexander took over The Lagg from his father in 1944 and concentrated on Aberdeen Angus stock and for several years his beasts appeared in the Aberdeen Angus Society Record Books. Over the years there was a considerable decline in the Angus breed with the rise of Continental beasts, and a chapter in Drumuillie life came to a close when Alexander retired from farming after 47 years, in 1991. He was 70 years old.

Now, the Mountain Grange is a beautifully finished lodge that sleeps up to 15 people. Perfect for large families, or small family groups looking for the perfect family reunion location package, or a relaxing break in this beautiful area.

From the minute you enter the grounds of Mountain Grange, you will smell the fresh Scottish Highland air take over you, helping you to instantly begin to unwind. As you enter the property, you will notice the attention to detail as you meet with a large Garden Room at the front of the property where children can play safely.  The first thing you will see when you look out across the substantial gardens at the front of the property, is the uninterrupted views of the majestic Cairngorm Mountain Range.  Truly a sight to behold.  At the lower end of the gardens, you will commonly see the Strathspey Steam Engine pass on a daily basis.

The property benefits from a large family kitchen where you can find seating for up to 12 people.  The Kitchen is the heart of the house as it separates the old house and the new extension.  Featuring a large induction hob and cooker, this is the perfect location to either rustle up some food for the group, or for one of our Private Chefs to prepare a Gourmet Highland Dinner, the choice is yours.

As you walk through, you will come across the Scandinavian sauna on the left, which is very much the beginning of your unique spa experience at Mountain Grange.  The other elements of the spa are external to the property.   Following the individual cobbles on the side elevation of the property, you will be able to take the ‘Wilderness Trail’ which will lead you to our bespoke Wilderness Showers, beautiful 7 person hot tub and our stunning fire pit.  This area is great for groups of people that want to enjoy the tranquil spa facilities in a very private setting.

The house has a large living room to the front of the property.  The Livingroom features an 8 person leather sofa which can act as a double pull down couch should you wish to use it.  You will also find a 55” 4k television with Blu-Ray player in this Livingroom, along with a SONOS Play 3.  The SONOS system has been set-up to allow you to stream music throughout the entire property or to keep the music to one individual room.

A large Family/Games Room is located beneath the family bedroom.  This features a fold away 5 ft. pool table, along with a Smart TV and PlayStation.  When you just want time to “play” or if the children want some free time away from the adults, this is a great space.
