Situated deep within the Scottish Highlands, just steps from many lakes and mountains, lies 57 Nord. This collection of two design-led boutique hideaways blends the region’s Norse-Gael heritage by incorporating Scottish craftsmanship, modern Scandinavian design and panoramic views into both structures.
Sky House and the newly opened Hill House feature luxury amenities, highlighting the meeting of modern design with wild and dramatic landscapes. Emphasizing slow living, 57 Nord encourages guests to escape their hectic daily lives and spend time in the rugged Highlands, reconnecting with nature and loved ones and rediscovering the beauty in every moment.
Sky House accommodates two adults, while Hill House, opened just last year, accommodates up to four adults, including children aged 6 and up. Hill House offers a modern interpretation of historic Scottish Shielings. Coming from the Old Norse Skjol, meaning shelter, Hill House features panoramic windows that perfectly frame Loch Duich, Eilean Donan Castle and the Kintail Mountains.
Natural materials and an earthy, interior color palette provide a calming and restorative experience. Hill House also includes a wood-burning stove; outdoor deck and firepit; smart TV; walk-in monsoon showers; in-room, stone bathtubs with a view; and luxury organic products from L:A Bruket. In addition to a fully fitted kitchen with a separate laundry room, Hill House also includes a complimentary hamper with local and artisanal products.

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.
Five Tips to Help Minimize Potential Travel Problems
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
