A taste of country estate living for the guests visiting one of North West Sutherland's finest houses is providing more than the usual tourism benefits for the local area. This is because the owners of the 12 bedroom Glencanisp Lodge are the Assynt community itself.
A Victorian hunting lodge in Sutherland is to get a £1.5m facelift to allow a variety of uses including use as luxury accommodation and use for corporate events, thanks to a funding package including Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) together with the Big Lottery Fund. Community group The Assynt Foundation near Lochinver has been awarded £250,000 by HIE and £785,000 by the Big Lottery Growing Fund Community Assets towards a £1.5 million project to renovate Glencanisp Lodge.
