There is a first floor bathroom, and a ground floor cloakroom. The living area is open plan, with a kitchen, sitting area and dining area.

We had an amazing time in this beautiful lodge, the lodge itself was absolutely stunning, plenty of space for us all, kids has good fun running around outside, we all enjoyed the hot tub and made good use of it! The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed, the dishwasher didn't tend to wash the dishes very well though! A lovely drive to Inverness and not far to Elgin or Landmark if you have kids! We would definitely recommend this lodge and would love to go back

We booked this lodge to celebrate a family members 60th birthday (6 adults, 2 children, 1 infant) and we were certainly not disappointed! The pictures do not do this place justice, it is huge! There was ample space for us all. The bedrooms were a very good size with big walk-in wardrobes, and the living area was very spacious also. The modern kitchen had absolutely everything we needed, even things like cling-film, tin-foil etc, which was great. The starter pack of lovely homemade jam, free-range eggs and bread was much appreciated too. In our opinion this is the best lodge we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in a few over the years! It is of very high spec - we particularly loved the under-floor heating, sauna, hot-tub and music system. And the kids loved the games - twister was a big hit! The owners went above and beyond the call of duty for us too - as we were celebrating a special birthday they decorated the lodge for us prior to our arrival and even went to the trouble of returning my mother-in-laws shoes, which she accidentally left behind! Would 100% recommend Atlas to anybody, trust me you will not be disappointed!

Originally my husband had planned to be in South Africa but due to an injury and subsequent operation we were not allowed to travel abroad.We looked on line for accommodation with a high spec and we were not disappointed when we opened the door at Atlas! The furnishings,bedding,seating,etc are all good quality.Music system,hot tub and sauna were excellent additions to our enjoyment of the lodge.While it is out in the middle of the country with stunning views it is only a 15min journey by car into Inverness.Plenty to do in the surrounding quality golf,castles to visit,distilleries,potteries,cinema...... Enjoyed the Fresh Eggs,homemade jam,and other bits to get us started.lovely touch.Also nice touch getting a "run through" on how equipment works in the lodge rather than manuals!!!Most enjoyable private location.....will be back with friends to fully enjoy facilities.

Completley defeated the purpose of a log cabin host constantly talked about coming down and even at one point requested access to the property for an hour and a half for some eco based travel company to look at the property. Also had reports of someone seeing us in the hot tub with a drink which just makes you wonder what else they have been spying on us to see. Feel like a complete breach of my privacy occurred. Host also took a significant amount of time talking to us on entry to the point I switched off due to her droning on. Beautiful property but if you are looking for a privacy ( which is the whole point of a log cabin) then look else where

We spent time together as a family in a lovely property enabling us to chill out and visit lots of near by attractions. The property itself was amazing and as described on the website.
