“Fantastic break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Second time to the lodges and we were not disappointed. Lodges are spacious and have been updated since we last stayed in them 7 years ago.
Walk down too the Corran Ferry and a walk round to Inchree for fantastic food.
We took advantage of the leisure facilities which were fantastic.

Room Tip: Lodge 2 is a good location.

We were 7 of us, 3 kids and 4 adults and had a great time at Birchbrae. Our lodge had 3 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms, living room and a kitchen. The wireless internet was great. The kitchen had everything you would want when travelling with kids (including a washing machine). Fort William was only 5-6 miles from Birchbrae. If you have your own transportation this place will be a great option.

We got this lodge for a snip through a deal. We were in lodge 1, there was room for 6 people as there was 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. the lounge was big and we also had a dining table. In the kitchen were all the mod cons you need including dishwasher and washing machine. You are right next to a forest and i believe plenty of wildlife but we didn't spot any apart from a roe deer on the first night. There are red squirrels and pine martins in the area, just keep your eyes peeled. The corn ferry is across the road with regular crossings to ardour and foot passengers go free, we went to go to the ardour hotel for lunch but it didn't open until 4pm (that annoys me, what impression does that leave on our tourists).
We will definitely be back here.
Oh i forgot to mention all the board games and extensive collection of dvds available, outstanding

I had the pleasure of staying in Lodge 2 at Birchbrae with friends last weekend. The lodges are simply wonderful , spotlessly clean and with every amenity you could wish for. They are also maintained to a very high standard with quality furnishings but at the same time are cosy and welcoming. The communication with the owner John was fantastic , every question i asked he answered promptly .Much better choice than a hotel stay in the area. The area itself is beautiful with lovely walks and stunning scenery , we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable weekend. We look forward to a return visit to Birchbrae in the future.

Just back from a relaxing long weekend at Birchbrae. Stayed in lodge 1 and we were delighted with the high quality furnishings and tasteful, clutter free decor. Two bathrooms, well appointed kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine together with very comfy beds. Also one of the bathrooms is just beside a spacious bootroom so perfect for changing after a day's walking, skiing or exploring.

All you need and more for a stay in one of the most stunning areas of Scotland. Located 7 miles from Fort William and similar distance to Glencoe. Good information in lodges offering ideas for days out and scenic trips, dining options, etc. Bothy on site with dvds and board games. Nice extra bonus of free access to local health club included with our stay. Car needed here but very close to a local shop and pubs.

Owner helpful and great communication re bookings and any queries. Looking forward to the next time as would not hesitate to stay again.

Thanks for a brilliant weekend, everything you need for a comfortable and trouble free stay.
We had a great time and being only 30mins from Glencoe Mountain Ski it was ideal
Thanks again and look forward to coming back

My family and I stayed in lodge 2 and had an amazing time. The lodge was lovely and clean and provided all amenities that we needed. The shed which provided dvds etc was a great treat. The only negative was the windows were easily opened from the inside which my toddler loved to do. Will definitely be back.
