Braesgill & Hope


Wildland’s portfolio of former Duke of Sutherland estates and lodges continues to grow with the historically and architecturally important Hope Lodge – a landmark at the north end of Loch Hope – which is now a part of the family.

– Hope Lodge (being restored) will sleep 20 –

We have plans to overhaul and lovingly restore Hope Lodge to become a signature hotel destination, situated halfway around the North Coast 500. The property will be extended and will sleep up to 20 guests when completed, offering commanding views north over the famous Loch Hope and River Hope.

This is an exceptional project, even by Wildland standards, resulting in a remarkable and significant hotel destination in the north.

Remember to check back on this page to keep up-to-date on all of the latest developments regarding Hope Lodge.

Whilst you will find all the trappings of a top sporting estate, there will also be tailored experiences appealing to a year-round audience of those looking for new ways to enjoy these extraordinary places and sharing Wildland’s ethos. Commitment to conservation is never far from the surface of our projects and, working with West Sutherland Fisheries Trust, we have evolved a novel and now award-winning solution to ensuring safe construction close to pristine watercourses of trout and salmon through our watercourses. The River Hope courses its way from Loch Hope below the lodge to the sea.

Hope is home to the UK’s most northerly birch wood and home too to nesting Golden Eagles which can be seen every day, especially in the summer months, soaring the warm air thermals.

Also a part of the Northwest Geopark, Hope is home to the Mhoine Thrust; a wish-list destination for every geology student the world over. The Moine Thrust is a linear geological non-conformity in the Scottish Highlands which runs from Loch Eriboll on the north coast 190 kilometres (120 mi) south-west to the Sleat peninsula on the Isle of Skye. The discovery of the Thrust in 1907 was a milestone in the history of geology as it was one of the first thrust belts discovered.
