I’m Gunta and my partner is Alec. We are a friendly couple with grown-up kids, who has left the family nest! At home, we have two very well behaved dogs and not so well behaved cat Lola (if leave your room doors open, she will sneak in). We love to spend time with amazing people from all over the world in great conversations, go for long walks in the forest by the river and we are enjoying good laughter! Now we live in the most amazing place on the earth! We are right in the middle of everything. From us, you can travel to very north to see Thurso, Wick or John O’Groats and we are only 20 miles (30 min drive) away from Inverness. From our home, you can go for amazing long walks to the forest with a river.
Welcome to the Beechwood Lodge

“Wow. I can’t say enough about Gunta and Alex. They drove us to dinner so we could properly relax at the end of the night and picked us up. The breakfast was delicious. The room was perfect, clean, and comfy. And before we left, Alex charted a course for us so we would stay off the beaten path and away from traffic and tourists. Their hospitality was AMAZING!!! We will be coming back next year and plan on staying a whole week with them. Love you two to the moon!”
“This is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed and owned by some of the nicest people you're likely to meet. I stayed here twice whilst on a work project in the hills nearby. For traveling workers Beechwood is ideal: the rooms are comfortable with everything you'd need provided, plus a large living/dining room and patio to relax and eat. Great choice of breakfast each day and in the evenings Gunta and Alec allowed us to cook meals for ourselves. With other guests we would play chess or watch a film, and on days off we could take their lovely and sorely missed dogs out for a walk by the river nearby, in quite spectacular scenery. The location is so quiet with wonderful fresh air that I slept incredibly well. Yet it's a short drive to Allness for restaurants and shopping and only 25 mins to Inverness.
I will return to Ardross and the Beechwood Lodge simply because it became a home from home whilst working and the owners and their dogs have become friends. I highly recommend the Beechwood Lodge to anyone looking for a cosy home to explore the region from or especially for traveling workers.”
“Great hosts so welcoming, nothing is to much trouble, great choice of food, spotless rooms, location is fantastic so peaceful loads of things to do in local area, walks, castles, nature, have to say the coastline up towards wick is probably some of the best not just in Scotland but UK and we come from fife,hosts are willing to listen and take on board any good advice, as a regular b&b user in Scotland for the last 10years I have never stayed at the same place twice but I will be revisiting this 1 sometime for definite.”
“I walked Lands End to John O'Groats this summer and stayed at Beech Lodge B&B. Very supportive kind people who gave my 3 dogs and me the most beautiful and comfortable room. They did everything to make their guests comfortable and had even lovely argan oil products in the bathrooms. I really enjoyed meeting husband and wife team. Thank you so much for dog charity.

“A little bit excited to visit our first B&B on our road-trip true the North of Scotland we where warmly welcomed to there lovely lodge. My daughter and me felt welcome in just seconds. The room was perfect and clean and offered lots of choices for a nice breakfast next day. Alec studied our trip for the coming week and gave us some other options to see more of the beautiful places. We were happy to come back here 7 days later to fly home the next day. This gave us the possibility to thank them for a unforgettable road trip. There enthusiasm made us love this people and next time we will stay some longer and keep The Beechwood Lodge as a basecamp to drive to the many places they advised us. Thank you both so much!”
