Hi Suzie, thanks for your enquiry. Although we occasionally allow dogs in the house, these are few and far between as we prefer to minimise the amount of time pets are in rooms as much as possible. Every room has had a dog in it at some point, however, we take great care to ensure the rooms are deep-cleaned after any pets have stayed. Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you would like any further information. Thanks again. Alasdair Butt Lodge

Hi Archie. Thanks for your enquiry. The approach is via a 200m stretch of gravel/rocky track which is quite rough in places. We've had guests in classic MGs who have had no problems at all, but some longer low vehicles have been a bit concerned. Generally if you take it slow it is fine. Alternatively you can park at the main road and walk up if you don’t want to risk it. Depending when you are planning to come, the track may be smoother...I'm trying to arrange improvements to it at the moment so hopefully that should happen in the next couple of months. Thanks again.

Do they take dogs?
Hi Fran - we do welcome dogs, however, there are some restrictions (no more than 1 per room and keeping them off furniture/out of dining room etc) Thanks Alasdair Butt Lodge

Yes it was a walk in shower, over all the bathroom was very spacious, and very well appointed and the water pressure was excellent.

"A room over looking the golf course if possible, but not vital"
"Our room had an extra floor like a viewing gallery!"
"Great views"
"Room 1 was quite small with no chair. We had a lot of luggage so could have done with more space."
"Rm 4 has a lovely view of the castle and Red squirrels can also be seen in the trees outside the room (awake early to see them)"
