Glentruim House -
Listed Category B(S) by Historic Scotland and recently refurbished from top to toe, Glentruim House offers a perfect blend of traditional highland living with luxurious home comforts. Under-floor heating runs throughout, which, coupled with its roaring open fires, blissfully comfortable bedrooms and cosy living spaces, makes Glentruim a beacon of warmth: the ultimate home to come home to, in even the coldest of Scottish winters.

The house’s interior is traditional, nodding to its heritage while offering every modern comfort. It sleeps up to 15 guests in eight blissfully relaxing bedrooms, with the living areas encompassing a kitchen, dining room, drawing room, smoking room, library, orangery, home-cinema, beauty spa, sauna and gym, all finished to the very finest standards. There are plenty of places to relax and entertain downstairs, from a formal dining room and drawing room, to an oak panelled smoking room and an extensive library of books and DVDs. The basement has been refurbished to include a state of the art home cinema and games room, a gym and spa.

The Coach House
Originally part of the Glentruim Estate Stables, the Coach House has lost none of its rustic charm, but has been updated to create a luxuriously comfortable and cosy retreat for four. It is listed Category C(S) by Historic Scotland. The accommodation comprises kitchen, sitting room, en suite bedroom, further bedroom and bathroom. With solid oak floors throughout the beautifully designed kitchen and sitting room, and a warming, wood-burning stove to relax beside, this is the perfect place to unwind and watch red squirrels foraging for food in the surrounding trees.

Gate Lodge
Situated on the southeast of Glentruim House by the entrance gates, this is a single storey cottage of traditional stone construction that has been sensitively updated. The lodge, the gates and piers are listed category C(S) by Historic Scotland. It contains a lovely carpeted living and dining area with a wood-burning stove, a king sized bedroom, a twin room, and a bathroom with a beautiful freestanding bath for soaking weary limbs after a day in the hills. Outside, there is a private garden with dining furniture for warmer summer evenings.

Laundry Cottage
Tucked away behind the stable block, Laundry Cottage is delightfully private, with its own breath-taking views down the Spey Valley to the tiny village of Laggan. Laundry Cottage is a one-bedroom haven fitted with a cosy woodburning stove, a beautiful sitting room and a king size bedroom.

Historical Note
The Glentruim branch of the Macpherson family has lived in its present home since the early part of the last century. At that time it was purchased from the Duke of Gordon, before which the family had lived nearby for almost 1,000 years. They are descended from the family of Cluny Macpherson, Chief of the Clan Macpherson, which in centuries past played such a significant part in the history of the Highlands. The family are the last descendants still having land in Badenoch.

Below Glentruim on the flat fields in the valley of the River Spey is a place where in 1398 was fought the battle of Invernahavon. At that time the Clans Macintosh, Macpherson and Davidson formed Clan Chattan and together they owned all the land between Glentruim and Inverness; becoming very powerful, they started to levy taxes on their neighbours, the Camerons. The Camerons marched into Invernahavon but before the battle took place the Macphersons insisted that they have the place of honour on the right flank and when their allies the Macintoshes and Davidsons refused they retired from the battle to the glacial ridges immediately below Glentruim, which can still be seen today. However, when their allies were in danger of losing the battle they drew their swords and put the Camerons to flight. They pursued the Cameron Chief, called Charles, where they caught up with him and killed him. To this day the hill is called Corharlich. After the battle of Culloden in 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Chief of Clan Macpherson hid in the mountains south of Glentruim and when the Prince escaped to France, Cluny Macpherson, the Chief, hid in a cave on the opposite side of the valley and within sight of Glentruim. He remained in hiding for nine years with a reward of £1,000 for his capture but nobody betrayed him, and eventually he too, following the Prince’s footsteps, escaped to France.

Gardens & Grounds
Tucked away in the grounds are three idyllic cottages: Coach House, Gate Lodge and Laundry Cottage. Glentruim Estate in surrounded by enchanting woodland, and unparalleled views of the Spey Valley and Monadhliath and Cairngorm mountains. Against this rugged backdrop, the castle and cottages are set upon lawned gardens and grounds that have long been acknowledged as some of the most beautiful in the central Highlands.
