Solid Luxury is a family business offering luxury self catering lodges and cottages across Scotland If you are looking for a quiet family holiday in a log cabin, a beautiful romantic cottage or lodge for couples or luxury dog friendly cottages and lodges with private hot tubs, Solid Luxury's collection of properties is vast and we have something for everyone.
Our range of luxury self catering cottages and lodges are available year round and will provide you with a wonderful relaxing holiday that is unrivaled.
We started off with some farm diversification at Balmeadowside just outside Cupar, in Fife, when we built 4 luxury lodges on the hillside with the most amazing views.
As these log cabins proved to be very popular we moved slightly further up the hillside and built 3 more with equally amazing views. This is when we decided to add on some hot tubs and lets just say, there has been no looking back, they were, and still are, a big hit!!
In 2012 we decided to renovate two of our cottages which sit above the lodges, and guess what... they also have amazing views! When renovating these lodges one of them, Cherry Blossom, was more suited to a 1 bedroom layout so we decided to make it a very special 1 bedroom romantic cottage which has proved immensely popular.
Next came Barn and Tawny Lodges in the summer of 2013 along with our fantastic Owl wood carving.
In 2014 we renovated the Farmhouse at Balmeadowside to a superb standard and added it to our holiday letting portfolio. With a wood burning stove, large outdoor hot tub and indoor games table it has proven to be very popular.
In 2015 we began work on Maple Cottage, another property which is suited to a 1 bedroom layout. We opened Maple Cottage in December 2015 and the positive feedback from couples who have stayed here has been overwhelming, the cottage is quickly becoming a favourite for guests at Balmeadowside.
All of our lodges at Balmeadowside are sited so that they have privacy and a great view, I know we keep mentioning it but it is fantastic from every property...
Rossie Ochil, in Perthshire, is a working estate where we again decided to do a little bit of diversification and now have four properties in our self catering collection.
With wonderful countryside to explore we wanted to let others have the experience of being in the middle of nowhere (but actually not that far off the beaten track)
We started with the larger of the properties, Rossie Ochil House, sleeping up to 16 people in 6-8 bedrooms, making it the perfect place for family gatherings and special occasions. Closely following this, we converted two original stone steadings creating The Granary and Keepers Lodge, both sleeping up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms and with the added luxury of their own private hot tubs.
In the summer of 2016 we introduced a 4th property to Rossie Ochil Estate. The Old Byre is a 3 bedroom steading conversion sleeping 6 with a master en-suite, a family bathroom and a shower room. Downstairs there is a large kitchen diner leading to the lounge area and lets not forget the luxury of your own private hot tub outside on the patio area.
Weddings at Rossie Ochil Estate
Your Wedding, Your Way
Exclusive hire of Rossie Ochil Estate is available so you can celebrate in an idyllic setting, surrounded by your family and closest friends allowing accommodation for 38 guests.
Having got quite a taste for the self catering business we decided to take over Conifer Lodges in Newton Stewart in 2012.
Conifer Lodges is a dedicated holiday destination in a beautiful part of Scotland beside the Galloway Forrest, making it the perfect location for nature lovers, adventurers and those who just like to kick back and relax.
We have worked hard to bring Conifer Lodges up to our high standards. 28 lodges were on site when we took over mostly in need of a bit of TLC which we have been dishing out generously.
Drumfork Estate in Blacklunans
Drumfork Estate in Blacklunans opened in the summer of 2016. Drumfork is in the perfect location for outside adventures whether that be hillwalking, skiing in Glenshee or golfing as well as being an ideal place to relax and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. Salmon fishing in the river by arrangement and trout fishing in the loch (both on catch and release) are also offered at Drumfork free of charge.
Two large cottages, Rose Cottage sleeping 8 and Chauffeurs Cottage sleeping 6, are the perfect holiday homes for those looking for luxury accommodation in peaceful surroundings yet with an array of activities nearby. Both cottages now have their own private hot tubs.
In March 2017 we opened Stags View. Stags View sleeps 6 and is further up the estate sitting alone with gorgeous views and the added luxury of a private hot tub.
We are also adding a one bedroom lodge, sleeping 2. Pine Marten is due to open at the end of September 2017. This lodge is also dog friendly and of course has its own private hot tub.
Vicarsford Farmhouse in Leuchars opened in December 2016. The Farmhouse sleeps 10 in five bedrooms whilst also boasting its own private hot tub, games room and 2 sitting rooms, making this the perfect getaway for family and friends.
