Ruskin Lodge, surrounded by nature

Log cabin | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

The lodge is perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway, friends looking for an escape to the country and families in need of some quality time together. There are a wealth of activities to enjoy in the area - from horse-riding to sailing, golfing to fishing. Walkers and hikers can explore the vast network of tracks and trails through forests and along shores and we are within easy reach of the Arrochar Alps.

Double-glazed throughout and recently refurbished to a high standard, this traditional log cabin is the perfect home-from-home. It is cosy, well-equipped, tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. The veranda is gated and we have blackout curtains in the bedrooms. The twin bedroom has full-sized beds suitable for adults and children and can be converted into a comfortable double or even a study. Guests are provided with hotel-quality luxury towels and bed linen at no extra cost.

The famous Puck's Glen walking trails begin behind the lodges and Benmore Botanical Gardens are a short walk away along a scenic track. The lodge is one of a small group that form the quiet, privately-owned Lamont Lodges which see many visitors returning year after year.

You can relax on your own large, covered veranda and take in the surrounding forests and mountains. We regularly see red squirrels, many types of birds and deer.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ruskin Lodge.

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

Tourists 'in-the-know' stay in Cowal. It is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels, otter and rare bird species inhabiting some of Scotland's most unspoilt and dramatic landscapes. Within a small area you can explore sandy beaches, rugged hills, lush ancient forests and impressive mountain ranges. As well as an excellent range of outdoor activities, including golf, fishing, horse-riding, mountain-biking and stalking, visitors can enjoy many cultural events including the largest Highland Games in the world.


Ruskin Lodge is a short drive away from Dunoon, just south of Loch Eck, and on the edge of Argyll Forest Park. You can start your walks from the backdoor, with the famous Puck's Glen track beginning directly behind the lodges.

"Lovely place,stunning surroundings"

We had a great time on a 4 night stay, even with a slightly grumpy 2 and a half year old with us. The lodge had everything we needed. It was clean and very comfortable. The area is stunning. What out for the midges though!!! Avon Soft so Smooth (is that what its called?) works wonders with those though!! And we left our daughters favourite buddy , and Abigail was kind enough to send him through the post so we only had to endue two nights of worry when we got home :) We thoroughly recommend Ruskin Lodge

Many thanks for your kind review - delighted you all enjoyed your holiday and I am so relieved we were able to find and return your daughter's 'friend'.
