Story

Story

Being a former Victorian hunting lodge, built in 1746, Gairnshiel Lodge has been a longtime favorite of royals, hunters and travelers alike. Two hundred seventy years later, we - a Belgian family that fell in love with the idyllic Scottish Highlands - discovered the lodge.

The most distinctive feature of Scotland’s history is probably that of clanship and the predominantly Highland clans. It’s in our blood and history to bring people together.

With an eye for timeless design, we try to collect stories. We seek for beauty in the imperfect. Inspired by eastern philosophies and rituals, we tried to create a home where strangers leave as family.

Renovated with respect for the past, Gairnshiel is a place where old meets new, where tradition stands in dialogue with the modern and with history in every stone, we continue to build on its amazing story.
