"superb lodge in a quiet location"
Lovely lodge with nice unique touches, has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Only things that would complete the experience would be free wifi and firewood.Will sleep 6 no problem not sure … More
Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Not wishing to split hairs but cabin is 250m from loch shore. The wifi is a tricky one; we make a charge as an extra as not everybody wants it and we'd have to put base price up to include in rental cost.
Apparently the shop / café was closed for refurbishment, pending new management, during your stay. Sorry about this, we didn't know until after your stay that it wouldn't be open.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Point noted about mirror in bedroom, one has now been installed. The Loch View Grill goes on off season opening hours at this time of year. Can be a problem during the week but the demand is simply not there for them. This info is on our website. Regards, David

Point taken about furniture, much of which has now been replaced. With regards to 3 star rating this is applied by Visit Scotland (Tourist Board), not us.
