Out of the ordinary luxury at Christmas

Silence, snow and lots of ho ho ho!

If the prospect of another traditional yuletide filled with festive flapping and Christmas chaos is leaving you feeling flatter than a gingerbread man, why not go rogue and immerse yourself in a Woodlands Luxury Christmas instead?

The Woodlands Estate is a truly magical environment to hide-out and hole-up with your significant other over the Christmas period.  With the majority of the team enjoying a well-earned break, the stillness and serenity of the forest becomes even more spellbindingly apparent, meaning you and your favourite person can simply relax, recharge and reconnect.

Christmas Eve

Check-in and chill-out from 4pm in the cosy confines of your luxury lodge.  A traditional festive welcome awaits with a twinkling Christmas tree, a flask of warming mulled wine and mince pies.  

Say CHEERS to a fuss-free Christmas from the bubbling depths of your own private hot tub.

Get the fire-pit roaring and cosy up beneath the star-scattered skies while you look out for Santa as he races over the mountains and through the glens.

Christmas Day

Awake from your festive dreams and indulge in the bountiful breakfast basket that was silently dropped off outside your lodge. 

Head over to the Clubhouse where you might find that Santa has left you a gift under the Christmas tree, if you’ve been good! 

If you’re a stickler for tradition, Christmas Dinner is available at the Ballachulish Hotel, which is just a short 5-minute stroll away. 

Boxing Day

It’s time to say goodbye! 

After breakfast indulge in one last soak in the hot tub before you head on your merry way.

Take in the exceptional Highland scenery and head out on one of hundreds of nearby walks as you make your way home.  From the romance of Glencoe Lochan to the majesty of the Three Sisters, what better way to wave a festive farewell to the most magical Christmas ever.

The highlights


It's oh so quiet

Christmas at Woodlands is a truly magical experience, as you’ll pretty much have the place to yourselves! 

On Christmas Day, we like to give our staff a well-earned break to enjoy the holiday, which means the Woodlands Estate is even more peaceful than usual.  There will be no staff on-site during this period, but we are just a phone-call away should you require anything urgently. That’s why, when you book a Woodlands Christmas getaway on 24th and 25th December, you’ll be treated to our best possible rates (and maybe even a mince pie or two if you’ve been good!).

Further festive information

If you’d like a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, both the Ballachulish Hotel (5 min walk) and Onich Hotel (5 min drive) will be open to non-residents on Christmas Day. A little further afield, the Kingshouse Hotel (15 min drive) will also be serving Christmas dinner to non-residents.  It is essential that you reserve a table in advance if you can.

For all other essentials, the Co-op in Ballachulish will be open from 8am – 8pm on Christmas Day and 7am – 10pm every other day.
