What a strange thing to think only three months ago, we flew to Inverness and headed the final two hours of our journey north, to reach the beautiful house at the end of the road to Tongue, Lundies House. The recently opened guesthouse is set in a 19th manse and outbuildings overlooking Kyle of Tongue.
The house is the latest of eight destinations created by Wildland, a company established by Danish philanthropists Anders and Anne Holch Povlsen in 2007 ‘to help take forward the conservation, protection and sustainable development of some of Scotland’s most rugged, precious and beautiful landscapes’.
It had snowed heavily before we arrived at Inverness and our journey north was full of gasps as lochs and bens slid and rose into view – it’s quite clear why the Polvsens are investing so much of their time and money into restoring and preserving this landscape.
We’ve posted several photos of our trip, but Wildland have a beautiful website that fully describes the enormous scale of what they hope to achieve, in Scotland and far beyond. For more about Lundies House have a look here
