"First class accommodation in a stunning area"

We had an excellent few days at Drimnatorran Lodge, which is one of the best self catering experiences we have had. A cosy and beautifully finished lodge - the four poster bed and roll top bath along… More

Thank you for taking the time to post comments.
It was wonderful to meet you all, hope you enjoyed the snow but it was good conditions for walking the area.Thanks also for the efficient cleaning and tidying before leaving. We look forward to seeing you all again.
Kind regards Sally & Melvyn
(The washing machine is now located in the new Storehouse building, along with our farm produced free-range organic beef and pork that is on sale.)

"Perfect Break"

This break was quiet and peaceful but more to do in the area if you choose, kids loved the animals and the hosts had alot of patience, accomodation was perfect, no idea why this is only 3 stars, beds … More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and the positive comments.
We are very pleased you all enjoyed your week break, the children seemed to enjoy interacting with all the animals we have. Congratulations again on the fundraising you achieved during your stay. Best wishes, Sally & Melvyn and all the animals at the farm.

"Lovely cottage"

It's such a lovely cottage and lovely owners too! We've already booked another holiday this year to go back.

The area is quite remote but then we wanted a remote highland holiday. The only downside is the ferry which is very expensive but the owner suggested we could buy a book of tickets, which will work out cheaper. Will try that this year.

Thank you for your positive review. Although the ferry cost can be quite expensive,there is a road route which takes about 40 minutes to Fort William. The scenery along the route is quite breathtaking and is a great alternative.

We have decided to return to Drimnatorran Lodge this June after the wonderful week we had last time. We stayed for a week at the beginning of June and was mesmerised by the beautiful area, the drive u… More

Thanks for your positive feedback, it is very helpful.
We are glad you really enjoyed your stay here, the farm animals have missed you feeding them!

"Clean, warm and comfortable in a beautiful setting for walking,cycling and fishing!"

Melvyn and Sally Shaw were very helpful in ensuring that everything was ready and welcoming when we arrived. Only the two of us, so we lived entirely on the first floor with the most magnificent views out of the windows, with lovely fires in the wood burner to curl up by on 2 huge futons and a clean well organised living kitchen which was really easy to use. The bedroom too was lovely.

Although it is joined on to the farm, the door to the Lodge is on the far side and it feels very private. At the same time it was lovely to be invited to wander around the farm and see the chickens, pigs, geese and calves in their enclosures. The children would have loved it.
We found that there were only a couple of places to go for a meal in Strontian and that it was better to fit a meal into our day out if we were going in the car. We did take supplies with us and the fresh eggs from the chickens were wonderful.

We could walk from the door or travel just a few miles in the car to other places- Glen Nevis. Glen Finnan,-so many places.

It was a lovely walk on the path alongside the river down to the village -with shop, cafe and Tourist Information. Only 20 minutes or so and right on the edge of Loch Sunart and more lovely views.

Next time we'll take more of the family as they were so impressed by our photos.

We felt away from it all as you should in the Highlands but were so close to amenities in Strontian

Thank you both for your comments, we enjoyed meeting you during your stay.
Hope the free-range pork and eggs travelled safely with you on your return to Yorkshire.
