Wren's Nest Lodge

Elegant Romance

Among birdsong and scrambling blooms, Wren’s Nest is calming splendor on a pleasure ground of a 2000 acre coastal estate. The bedroom has a superking bed and bathroom with rain shower. The living room leads to a large garden, with an outdoor bathtub under the camellia tree. Underfloor heating turns it into a lovenest, which perhaps William Wordsworth described, “Among the dwellings framed by birds/ In field or forest with nice care / Is none that with the little Wren’s / In snugness may compare.”

Wren's Nest Lodge Availability

*This fee includes the welcome hamper, which contains bread, baked goods, eggs, coffee, tea, milk, butter, artisan cheese, jam and marmalade. A selection of ready-to-eat meals are also available for you from our professional kitchen. Most of these items are made by our professional chefs. The fee also includes laundry, linen, unlimited logs, and complimentary use of the boat on our loch.

The lodge is located on a truly vast estate that is only open to guests and residents. This includes the maze, walled garden, two lochs, two beaches, meadows and endless woodland. As such, the grounds maintenance and landscaping is significantly more extensive than an apartment unit in a suburb.

Finally, we are located in an exceptionally impoverished, low-skill, and rural area. From our regular market research, we understand that our compensation for our team here is well above the wages in Edinburgh in similar job. We are committed to generous renumeration in order to attract and retain the necessary (but typically rare) talents in this unbelievably small population.
