Rose Blair Lodge brings you the the most uplifting and tranquils retreat where the free-spirits can prance freely to the untamed beats of their hearts. Tucked into rolling meadows and matured woodlands, the lodge features an outdoor bathtub nestled among shrubs and flowing vines. This is a luxury abode where one can truly run wild, to meander down the path along a babbling brook to the long beaches and tidal rushes of the Dunskey Glen.

The space
We are exceptionally proud to offer this ultra-romantic, back-to-nature retreat, within a stone's throw of Dunskey Castle. This lovely fairy-house welcomes guests to fall into step with the gentle rhythms of the rural resort that is Dunskey Estate. Stroll past the moss-covered stone wall that surrounds the cottage and drink in the endless open fields. Here, we focus on pure relaxation and escape, where you can wake up to birdsong, and curl up at night in front of the wood burning stove.

Guest access
Designed with an eclectic mix of textures and bohemian aesthetic, the interiors will set free your inner wild child. Pink velvet cuddle chairs, dreamy chandeliers, and a grand linen upholstered bed gleaming with gold accents will offer the the ultimate glamour and comfort.

Historic Edwardian castle estate in the heart of picturesque Portpatrick. 2000 acres of glen walks, forests, beaches, lochs, gardens and waterfalls to explore. The Castle Apartment is completely self-contained with its own private courtyard and entrance.

The walled garden with its glass house is a romantic and peaceful retreat on the estate. Two lochs nestle into the hills and rhododendron banks. Wander along the glen walk past a rushing waterfall, and a babbling brook, to the two beaches to spot dolphins and seals. Dunskey Golf Course and the picturesque Portpatrick Harbour is two minutes away. Fishing expeditions from the beaches or on our two lochs are available. Pheasant shooting and deer stalking are also available upon request.

Reading is my life, especially if the books are by women of colour. I am also a proud and outspoken feminist who is passionate about racial justice, rural development, and voting rights. Smashing the patriarchy is our family's most favoritest activity :-) . Our family has been working on the Dunskey Project for the last few years, and we believe in transformative, compassionate, and value-driven hospitality. My children, Poi and Beebop, love pho and Vietnamese ginger chicken more than life itself. They're also partial to whacking nettles and swinging under the chestnut tree in the back of the Castle. We raise our children and ourselves with service as the core determinant of our lives. Also we listen to lots of podcasts and go for many aimless walks all around this remote corner of Scotland. The mushrooms are amazing teachers too!
