Wildside Highland Lodges

has anyone stayed at Greylag or Wintergreen lodge part of the wildside highland lodges? I specifcally would like to know what the view is like from of either of those two lodges. I gather there are lots of beautiful walks around the area, but are there any pubs, restaurants etc within walking distance? We will have a car, where's the nearest shop to stock up? thanks in advance, beccy.

It is certainly a lovely area and group of lodges. I can't think of the view from the specific lodges but I could pop in next week and check. The visitlochness.com/accommodation/whitebridge-… is pretty much within walking distance maybe half a mile away (I'll double check next week). Shops wise I would probably do my main stock up in Inverness but there is also a small shop in Fort Augustus and also one in Drumnadrochit for top ups. Any other questions on the area just ask.

p.s. Here's a winter scene of the glen where Whitebridge sits in flickr.com/photos/…set-72157625438816557

Hi Beccy,

I am the manager at Wildside and as such thought i might be able to help!

Both Greylag and Wintergreen have lovely views - Wintergreen has slightly more lawn space and is a little bit more secluded than Greylag, nonetheless both of them are beautiful.

The nearest shop is in Fort Augustus, however if you do an on-line shop with Tesco's you can book a delivery slot and if you let me know what time they are arriving I am more than happy to direct the delivery to your lodge.

The local pub and hotel is literally a 2 minute walk up the hill and has a good selection of food and ales for very reasonable prices. For restaurants further afield, you can find The Bothy and The Lock Inn both in Fort Augustus which also do excellent food. My personal favourite is called the Dores Inn which is on the way to Inverness and well worth a visit.

I am not a well qualified as JLH to answer :-) but I did pop down today (and did let them know why in case they wondered why I was looking round :-) ). As has already been said both have lovely views but Wintergreen does edge it as it is in the right in the corner with the edge of the garden overlooking the river. This also makes it more secluded with the hot tub looking right on to the hills. I am also told Wintergreen has a regular red squirrel visiting the feeding table in the garden.

Yes good news on the Whitebridge Hotel and the hill is shorter that I remembered making it just 100 yards from the Lodges. As has been mentioned they have a nice varied menu at very reasonable prices.

Hi,

Has anyone stayed at Tomatin lodge? Has it got a hot tub and what are the views like? Can't seem to find any reviews on them! We are staying in June and can't wait!

Thank you
