The former Letterfinlay Lodge at Spean Bridge has undergone an “extensive” refurbishment and has re-opened its doors as the Whispering Pine Lodge.
The hotel, originally a hunting lodge built in the 1800’s, is situated on the banks of Loch Lochy and is ideally located to explore the Highlands.
The property has 25 en-suite bedrooms with views of the Highlands landscape or Loch Lochy. All rooms have been restored to a high spec with the interiors inspired by the surrounding area with accents of tartan oak floors and panelling.
It also features The Lochside Brasserie, which overlooks Loch Lochy, and is open to the public as well as residents serving locally sourced fresh fish, seafood and classic regional cuisines. The Burns Bar, which pays homage to Robert Burns, is fully stocked including a wide range of local Scottish whisky to choose from.
It also offers the Sleeping Beauty Salon, featuring two beauty treatment rooms alongside a nail bar and pedicure area.
Additionally, situated close to the hotel are the Whispering Pine cabins – three-bedroom cottages that look out over Loch Lochy and offer direct access to the private pebble beach. The cottages include a fully fitted kitchen, a dining and living area with a gas fireplace and a private patio.
The property was bought by the Black Sheep Hotel group, which is under the ownership of Mumbai-based hospitality company, Mars Enterprise and Hospitality. Its owner, entrepreneur Sanjay Narang purchased the property following his visit to the Highlands in 2018.
Narang said: “We are delighted to be opening the third of our Black Sheep Hotels at Whispering Pine Lodge, providing affordable luxury on the banks of stunning Loch Lochy.
“The opening marks our hat-trick of Highland hotels, following the opening of Rokeby Manor and Cluanie Inn earlier this year. We have brought together our considerable experience and expertise in the hospitality sector in order to ensure that each of these has hotels their own unique style, perfectly located to explore the Highlands.”
