In a secluded spot surrounded by vast fields and forests, Kinloch Lodge is situated in the wild Highlands of northern Scotland. This historic property, once the hunting lodge of the Duke of Sutherland, has been transformed into an exclusive holiday home with hotel services. The interior of this traditional Scottish house displays Nordic influences. Its interior designers, Anne Storm Pedersen and Ruth Kramer, who both hail from Denmark, call this style Scandi-Scot: Nordic design meets Scottish traditions. Scandinavian classics, muted shades, antique Scottish pieces and natural materials such as wool, linen and skins bring the Danish Hygge feel to the highlands.
The kitchen is the heart of the house. The adjoining dining room with an open fireplace is furnished with a table and chairs by Hans J. Wegner. In the library, Ole Wanscher’s colonial chairs have been combined with lamps from the Swedish label Wästberg, British literature, and modern art. The conservatory, furnished with vintage furniture, offers beautiful views of the countryside. The seven bedrooms on the first floor of the house are so homely that they can also be used as a private retreat throughout the day.
What to do
