Everything about the lodge was of the highest standard. It was impeccably furnished but also very homely. The site itself was very well maintained and quiet. There was lots to do in the surrounding area too. We would highly recommend this lodge.
Mrs Martin

The lodge was fantastic and the area was so peaceful, it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach, which was a lovely walk. Also really enjoyed walking around the loch every day with the dogs. Contact with the owner was good and it was a very dog friendly area which we liked. We would definitely go back again and definitely to this lodge which we loved.
Mrs Palmer

Thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all. A real home from home experience.
Miss Hendren

Lovely cabin, always nice to visit this part of Scotland and this cabin makes it even better. All the home comforts and more.
Mrs Stuart

Fantastic accommodation in an idyllic location - very family friendly. It was exceptionally clean and had all we needed. The beds were so comfortable, it was a disappointment to return home to our own! The location to the beach is ideal - just a short walk, 4-5 mins at the most.
