Sandwood Lodge Loch Lomond
Log cabin | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Privately owned, Sandwood Lodge is a cosy self catering log cabin and is situated at Rowardennan on Loch Lomond in Scotland. It is situated just 50 meters from the waters edge on a quiet, private estate. Think about clear starry nights away from city traffic, lights and noise against walks wrapped up against fesh and crisp bright winter days. Or in spring and summer take trips away and explore Rob Roy country, The Trossachs or the mountains of Argyll and the north to Oban and perhaps a quick hop on the ferry to the Isle of Mull.
Loch Lomond, which is 23 miles long and 4 miles at its widest point, is certainly one of the world's, and Scotland's, most stunning and internationally renowned locations.
Sorry - I don't offer 1 night stays. It is 2-3 nights at weekends (and priced for 3) and 7 nights in the main holiday seasons.

We are a small group of friends in our late 20's/early 30's, who struggled to find anywhere that would accept none-family groups. Simon was more than happy to give us the benefit of the doubt and accept our booking.
Arrival - Simon sent a very detailed set of instructions which covered everything from directions, getting the lodge keys, heating, waste disposal, departure etc. On arrival everything was spotless, yet very homely. We settled in quickly, particularly with the help of the complimentary wine and biscuits.
The lodge - was very spacious, and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. In particular pots, pans, plates, cutlery, bbq, bed linen, towels etc. There was even a nice selection of books, dvds and videos for those rainy evenings. The washing machine and dryer came in very handy after our daily excursions. The lodge sits within the middle of the site, less than 50m from the Loch Lomond shore, and surrounded by other lodges, which were mostly empty during our stay. The shore has a pier with boats moored up around it, so if you have a boat this area is ideal.
Locations/Amenities - The nearest town/village was Balmaha, about 6miles south of the site, and the slightly larger town of Drymen was only a further 4 miles away which we used to buy bread/milk and other necessities from Spar. Balmaha has a nice harbour which you can rent rowing/motor boats, canoes, kayaks etc and also buy tickets for boat tours across the Loch. The Tourist Information Centre is also located here. The road leading up to the site runs alongside the West Highland Way, which was very popular with walkers from all over the world. There is the odd pub/camp site located along the way, including the Rowardennan Hotel and The Clansman Pub. The path up to Ben Lomond starts from the car park just past the hotel, but make sure you don't accidentally take the hard route, like we did.
Dislikes - There are very few dislikes, the biggest being the TV reception was quite poor, but we weren't too concerned as we spent most of our time out of the lodge, and watched films in the evening. There is also no wifi and 3G is almost none existent in the area.
I am already recommending this lodge to my friends and family. An easy 5 stars from me.
Your heading says it all and so I appreciate that. We were in touch after your stay in Scotland at my lodge and thank you again for your kind feedback.

"Excellent lodge accomodation in a beautiful Loch side location"
My husband and I spent a very enjoyable stay here in this lovely lodge with our two children, The accomodation was spacious, tastefully decorated throughout and very well equipped. It was also spotless!
Simon, the owner of the property was very helpful in planning our holiday and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and biscuits!
If you are looking for a peaceful get away from it all holiday this is ideal. There is good access to the water and many local walks including the challenge of climbing Ben Lomond which is Scotland's most southerly Munroe. We would be very happy to return for another stay here.
It's great to know you enjoyed your stay on the shores of Loch Lomond and that my lodge made for a comfortable base for your holiday. Thanks very much for taking the time to pass on your feedback.

"Peaceful Retreat on Loch Lomondside"
Wonderful, peaceful lochside accommodation in Lodge. It's a very comfortable place to relax in after a busy day doing all sorts of outdoor activities.
It was home from home, all mod cons with a fantastic view!
Simon, the owner, was very welcoming, leaving us a bottle of wine and chocolate biscuits!!
Will definitely come back.
Thanks for taking time to pass on your comments after your stay at my lodge by Loch Lomond. Always great to hear that visitors have enjoyed their stay and have been able to experience the area and loch. Thank you.

"Our 5th visit and it gets better every time"
The standard of the lodge is exceptional. Clean, bright, well equiped and in a lovely location. This is our 5th visit over the last 7 years and the standard of the lodge has not changed once in all that time - it is like new. If you are looking for somewhere to chill out but explore the outdoors this is the place to beat.
Thank you so much for taking the time to give me your feedback - so much appreciated. And thank you too for another visit to my log cabin here at Rowardennan on Loch Lomond. As I have said before to previous reviews, I only wish we got up more to stay ourselves.

Stayed here for 4 nights from 31/12/13 to 4/1/14 we were 3 couples, the Lodge was a great size for us we could not fault it. It is in a very good location on the banks of Loch Lomond, they even left us a bottle of wine and a very nice tin of biscuits which we thought was a very nice touch. Would not think twice about staying here again and would highly recommend it.
Thank you for booking my lodge on Loch Lomond for New Year. Pleased the hear you enjoyed your stay - I know the weather was not great. But it's nice to walk from door and then come back to a cosy log cabin and snuggle in for the evening.

"Brillant Log Cabin"
You should be so proud to own such a beautiful log cabin in an idyllic location. We entered the log cabin after a long and arduous journey and was overwhelmed at the spacious and beautiful designed la… More
Thank you so much for taking time to add your feedback following your stay at my lodge. We are pleased you found the lodge in good order and that you enjoyed your stay in the area. Yes Loch Lomond is a wonderful spot for water sports particularly for those who can bring their own boats or water-ski at the club nearby - of course that also includes children who stay at the site who enjoy just playing on surf boards and paddling on the beach. We just enjoy the peace and quiet and being able to walk for miles right from the doorstep.
