Mullardoch House is set in a dramatic and unspoilt landscape of outstanding beauty in Glen Cannich. The house, which was built in 1912 as a private hunting lodge by the Chisholm of Chisholm, lies just above Loch Sealbhanach with stunning views across the loch to the surrounding mountains. The road through the glen follows the River Cannich and climbs out of the village through native woodland until the scenery opens out to reveal the river floodplains, beyond which rise heather hills and high mountain ridges. Lying between the National Nature Reserves of Glen Affric and Glen Strathfarrar, Glen Cannich is a sparsely populated, less visited area and offers that unique sense of solitude and remoteness.
In its early days the lodge played host to many important figures in society including, its claimed, the last Tsar of Russia, who would visit to enjoy the world class stalking, shooting and fishing available locally. Today the lodge is still an ideal base for such traditional rural sports while, in addition, the area offers superb hill walking, challenging Munros and sightings of rare native wildlife such as golden eagles, osprey and ptarmigan and plentiful red deer.
The current owners, who purchased the lodge in 2005, have fully renovated the house and grounds and this work includes re-roofing, replacement windows, the installation of a new boiler, complete redecoration and landscaping of the grounds. The work has been sensitively carried out to preserve the character and features of the original house, while bringing it up to modern day standard as a lodge to be used for both small, intimate gatherings and large house parties with the potential to be run on a commercial basis.
