The Grounds

The Grounds

Glenmorangie In Gaelic means ‘valley of tranquillity’ which perfectly describes our peaceful coastal setting. From the moment you crunch up the sweeping drive, and see our magnificent house, sitting right beside an ancient ruined castle, you know you are somewhere special. Our beautiful grounds mean the great outdoors are as much a part of your stay as the outstanding indoors.

Gardens

A stroll around the immaculate lawns, the scents, smells and sounds of the countryside igniting your senses, is a perfect way to start or finish a day at Glenmorangie House. You can enjoy pre-dinner cocktails on the terrace or a contemplative after dinner dram as the sun sets.

The Walled Kitchen Garden

The Walled Kitchen Garden

This is where we grow the delicious herbs and vegetables that we use in our cooking, and the delightful flowers that make The House feel like a home. You can also explore a stunning dry stone wall art installation inspired by one of our whiskies, Glenmorangie Signet, or just sit back and enjoy the perfect stillness.

The Dovecot

The 18th century dovecot stands in the rolling countryside between The House and the sea. Notable for the striking weather vane on the roof, this historic landmark reminds you that you are in an area where the past is all around you, giving you a real feel for what life here used to be like.

The Cadboll Stone

The Cadboll Stone

The surrounding area was the heartland of the Picts, and nothing symbolises this more than the incredible Hilton of Cadboll stone. Carved around 800 AD it now takes centre stage in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. However just a short walk along the beach from The House, local artist and sculptor Barry Grove has painstakingly recreated and reimagined the Stone. So you can still experience its beauty and mystery for yourself, right on the spot it was found. And the stone is lit up at night, dramatically bringing it to life with some of the original colours its Pictish creators would have used. Back at The House you will see our distinctive brand emblem on the wall, inspired by these ancient carvings.

The Beach

A quick and easy walk from The House takes you to our very own beach. The rich, honeyed aroma of gorse gives way to the salt and the spray of the sea and you can literally walk for miles here and not see a soul. Or if you are feeling more energetic, some brave guests even take a dip in the North Sea on a morning, to blow away the cobwebs!

The Green Path

The Green Path

Many guests find an early morning walk down to the beach an irresistible start to the day. Especially as your stroll begins along this charming and picturesque tree lined avenue. It is also ideal for a gentle wander at night, and walking off that extra helping of sticky toffee pudding…
