We stayed for 3 nights and it was even better than expected. The bedroom was massive, the kitchen was fully equipped and there was even butter and milk in the fridge and some shortbread and a miniature of whisky left out for our arrival. We took a long walk to the nearby falls of foyers and took a boat ride...

The bedroom was very generously sized, comfy and lodge was mostly(!) good condition. Negatives: The sofa is very much worse for wear and needs replaced. There were...

This is our second visit to Wildside, previously visiting over NY in 2014. This time we stayed in the brand new 'Eagle Lodge' with our 2 children. The Lodge is beautiful. Everything is brand new, good quality and very comfortable with wood burner and hot tub. We had a couple of mild teething problems and the centre staff sorted pronto....

I'm not sure where to start with the wildside lodges but they exceeded all my expectations and more. We arrived late at night and there was a letter left at reception with a map and the name of our lodge. We were staying in the dalwhinnie pheasant lodge. We arrived outside the lodge and it was lit up beautifully. We...

Thank you for your lovely review. We always provide cloths and scourer for each lodge and they are under the sink. I am very sorry that your lodge did not have this. It must have just been a mistake. If guests ever need anything just ask and we are happy to help.

Myself and my partner went to the lodges for a week! Fantastic views, great lodge, well kept. Friendly staff who can always help!

Thank you for you wonderful review. It's always nice to read that some people don't mind the poor internet we have at this side of the Loch and don't mind communicating the old fashioned way. Hope to see you again soon. Jakki

Graded 4 Star Excellent quality, by Visit Scotland. Located in the hamlet of Whitebridge, 9 miles from Fort Augustus and 24 miles from Inverness, the Highland capital, with excellent road, rail and air links. 200 Metres from Wildside Highland Lodges is a country pub serving delicious meals.
