Extracts from Visitors Book – 2013
Back again and the lodge is as good as ever…..Lots of wildlife as usual plus my first proper red squirrel sighting! Pine marten visited every night at various times from 7pm to 4 am!
Oct – H & S, Sussex
The weather has been fabulous … and our tandem rides through the woods and round the lochs have been epic…saw lots of buzzards, herons, deer and of course the pine martens…The lodge is everything you could wish for from a holiday base.
Oct – P & J, East Yorkshire
The lodge was clean and beautifully finished inside and out, with wine and shortbread waiting for us after a long journey …..We have seen some incredible scenery and wildlife including the local pine marten, roe deer nearby, even a golden eagle hunting around the loch….. Our hosts were very helpful and willing to aid us whenever we requested it.
Sep – K & C, Isle of Wight
Visit No. 9 to this wonderful and amazing lodge. We just can’t stay away, we love it! So beautiful and relaxing, the perfect place to recharge the batteries… We especially loved the bird feeder with hours of entertainment – watch out for the woodpecker.

Beautiful cabin, a really enjoyable stay. We’ve been everywhere & done everything… travelling with two very young children …Mull (Balamory) …. Duart Castle …Sealife Sanctury … Inverary Jail & Castle ….Loch Etive Cruises…. All in all a great holiday. A great cabin (a real home from home) plenty to see and do.

A fantastic fortnights holiday! Extremly relaxing. Enjoyed the comfortable lodge and watching the weather change at a blink of an eye over the loch.…Fishing good around the loch… Pine marten seen once, many different birds seen in garden. Several buzzards seen and ospreys over loch….The lodge was the best we have ever stayed in.

We had an amazing time and we did loads of fun activities. Some of our favourites were – Sealife Centre, Crinan woodland walk, Inverary Jail and the Distillery tour – they even gave us (the children) irn-bru…We really enjoyed the peace and quiet…

Mar – L family, Northampton
What a beautiful lodge and setting – it surpassed our expectations…It’s so quiet here – we enjoyed listening to the birds and watching them on the feeder. Especially when two woodpeckers made an appearance! Best of all was when the pine marten came…
Mar - H & G, Edinburgh
Wow! What a relaxing place! We work and live in the city and the silence here is amazing! … It’s been minus 4 at times over the last few days and we’ve been nice and snug in here. We would certainly recommend this to others. I didn’t realise there were still such secluded places in the UK away from all the stresses of day to day life.
