Absolutely amazing place. A well hidden gem. Far away, tucked in the forest, yet just a stone throw away from the airport. Lodges are beautifully finished to a very high standard and offer a great break and escape from the busy life. Tastefully decorated and very well equipped.

Had a wonderful stay, Eleanor has thought of everything to make your stay an enjoyable one. It's well equiped with everything you would need for all weathers. Four nights wasn't enough for us to do all the exploring we had planned therefore wouldn't think twice about returning.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Very much appreciated. Your loyalty and sheer effort to get here is nothing short of incredible. Not just holiday visitors but dear friends now and if we had visitor awards (which we may very well start!) you two are in the Platinum band. See you in 2019 xxx Scotland - and the golf courses of the North and North East - loves you. Haste ye back!

Just spent four days at the Lodges as part of a walking holiday. Superb in all respects. The website photos and descriptions were accurate. We especially enjoyed the wildlife. The red squirrel appeared at least once per day on the feeder, as did the woodpecker. Also saw a

Thank you so much. It was lovely to meet you and delighted you enjoyed your break. On my way home from the Lodges this morning I spotted a beautiful dragonfly on the track so will post the photos later on. Bird feeders full to the brim and thank you for your contribution. The birds are very grateful! Beautiful day here again, if a tad windy. Perfect for harvest. Combine in, followed by baler, and as I type field cleared and the next thing I'll see from the office window will probably be the plough. The never ending circle of farming! All the best for the rest of 2018 and would love to see you back at Lodges at the Mains

What a fantastic location with breathtaking views. Luxury quality to the lodge with an excellent kitchen, dining area and lounge and bedroom with a balcony and great views of the Moray Firth. Deer, red squirrels and a variety of birds can be seen including woodpeckers and jays.

"This isn't a hotel therefore not applicable"
"As there are only 2 lodges this isn't an issue - both are identical and have a very similar outlook and setting. There is possibly a SLIGHTLY better view from Scot's Pine, which appeared to have slightly fewer trees to obstruct the view over the lake and estuary, but then again, we had to drive past this lodge to reach Silver Birch, so the residents there MAY have felt that was less preferable?! My advice? If one is already booked, book the other - you won't be disappointed!"
"Silver Birch is more open and the views are better, but I'm probably prejudiced because that was the one we stayed in!"
