Apart from 30 degree heat there is nothing more we could have asked for from our stay.
6 of us stayed over a weekend for my girlfriends birthday. The lodge was stunning and had everything we needed the area was picturesque to say the least. With Loch Earn round the corner we went for a long walk on the Saturday and then some wakeboarding on the Sunday.
The guest book in the lodge has loads of reviews and I don't think there was one complaint. If your looking for a week or weekend stay in the area you should stay here.
