Sometimes, we feel like life is too busy to take a break. That is why we’ve created the perfect weekend get-away that allows you to spend 2 glorious nights away from all your everyday worries and responsibilities and take the break that you deserve. On arrival, we’ll have a chat over a cuppa about personalising your weekend activities.

Package includes:

  • Comfortable En-suite room.
  • Your choice of Twin or Super-king bed.
  • Smart TV & Netflix.
  • Cooked or cold breakfast range.
  • Evening meals provided.
  • A bottle of wine on arrival (red, rose or white).
  • Large, cosy lounge with fireplace for your relaxation and garden sitting area.
  • Personalized activities/trips for each day.
  • Home from home atmosphere.


Day 1
You’ll travel to the B&B, while experiencing stunning views of our countryside along the way. A warm welcome awaits you on arrival and we’ll show you around and get you settled into your room. Over a cuppa, we will have a chat about personalising your weekend activities: planning what scenery and attractions you want to see, whether that be exploring the highlands, walks in the local area, or simply relaxing in the comfort of our B&B: or a bit of everything!

Following an afternoon of your planned activities, you could enjoy a quiet stroll around the nearby river, or simply relax with your complimentary bottle of wine by the cosy fireplace in the lounge, or in your room, where you can chat the night away or catch up with Netflix.

Day 2
After a hearty home-cooked breakfast, the day will be spent enjoying your planned activities, such as visiting the local waterfalls, forests, castles, or distilleries, or simply spending the day relaxing for that well-deserved rest. In the evening you will spend the evening at your leisure.

Day 3
On the morning of your check out, after enjoying another home-cooked breakfast of your choice, we can discuss the itinerary for your day and the journey home. Although we’re always sad to see you go, we’re only happy to help point out places of interest and hidden gems to visit on your route back.

P.S. Before booking, please be aware we have two friendly dogs and a cat in the house.

Your hosts

Hi there! We’re Gunta and Kristine…
We are the friendly mother-daughter duo that run Beechwood Lodge B&B. We’re the warm faces that’ll be greeting you at the door, welcoming you to our little piece of Highland paradise. We share our home with our 2 well behaved dogs Sasha & Roxy, and our old, cat Lola.

We love to spend time with amazing people from all over the world, enjoying great conversations, going for long walks in the nearby forest by the river and having a good laugh!

Yes, it’s true what they say. We live in one of the most amazing places on the earth! We are in the middle of nowhere and yet everything. We have wide open spaces, tranquil landscapes with peace and quiet that calms the soul, but we are also ideally situated right on the North Coast 500 (NC500), Scotland’s Route 66, only 20 miles (30 min drive) away from Inverness. From us, you can travel to the very North to visit John O’Groats, Wick, or Thurso, South to search for Nessie at Loch Ness or journey to the almost tropical West Coast. So whether you’re venturing afar or stepping out our back garden for a walk by the river, you’ll be truly surprised of how much there is to see at Beechwood Lodge.

Ardross is located about 20 miles north of the Highland capital, Inverness, and is in the county of Easter Ross. It lies on the B9176 road that runs between the town of Alness on the Cromarty Firth and the village of Bonar Bridge on the Dornoch Firth. This road is signposted as the “Moray Firth Tourist Route” and is a scenic alternative to the A9 for those travelling up or down the East coast of Scotland. If you fancy taking on the NC500 and asking yourself “where should I stay along the North Coast 500?”, we are ideally situated en route to break up the journey. This road is also on the most common Lands’ End to John O Groats route, making us a convenient stopover for those travelling End to End.

Scotland, and in particular the Highlands, offers probably the best walking available around the world. There’s everything from low level strolls by lochs and rivers, to the Mountains and in particular the Munro’s, the 3000-foot mountains of which there are 284. Surely enough choice for any avid hiker, as well just about everything in between for all ages and abilities.

Scotland is a bit different. Access to the hills is, by tradition, allowed on most uncultivated upland areas. This makes hill walking here somewhat unique. For a start, you will find very few footpaths marked on Ordnance Survey maps, and far fewer signposted on the ground. Because walkers are not forced to follow restricted routes on exactly the same path, you will often find untouched hillsides to roam, rather than beaten tracks, so you can take your time and make your own path.
