Marino Lodge is a large self-catering holiday house, offering delightful accommodation on the west coast of Scotland, near the village of Lochailort in the Lochaber area of the Highlands. Surrounded by a huge and beautiful scenic area of the Scottish West Highlands, the lodge offers some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery, with sea views out to the Inner Isles. It is situated just off “The Road to the Isles”, the A830 from the Inverness-shire town of Fort William to the port of Mallaig.

Marino is a modern lodge with traditional Highland features combined with comfortable accommodation. Marino Lodge fits into neither category of castles nor self-catering cottages but offers the unique ambience of a large house on a centuries-old historic estate which dates back to the Jacobite rising, and before that to the Clanranalds.

Surrounded by its own 4500 acre estate, where you are free to roam, Marino Lodge is modern, snug and warm and is the perfect holiday lodge for guests who hanker after room to roam. Marino Lodge is on an elevated position on Roshven Hill, giving fantastic panoramic views over Loch Ailort and out towards the islands of Rhum and Eigg, and provides a unique setting in one of the most scenic parts of Scotland. The sunroom captures the panoramic views of the Inner Isles whilst providing an excellent play area for children during the day.

There is lots to do in the area, with golf, walking, cycling, clay pigeon shooting, stalking and fishing all to be enjoyed. With Marino Lodge as a touring base Loch Ness, The Isle of Skye, Ardnamurchan and Oban are all a comfortable day out. The famous Glenfinnan viaduct from the Harry Potter films is less than 15 miles away. Also nearby is the West Highland Line, which is now more famed for the Hogwarts Express.
