Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights at the lodges and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodges are very well appointed with every comfort provided. We had wonderful meals nearby in Fort William at the Crannog Seafood restaurant and the Lime Tree restaurant and an exquisite seafood meal at the Lochleven seafood cafe.
Sadly didn't see the Pine Martins but left toast and jam for them which disappeared overnight so hope they enjoyed!
Only downside was poor weather but otherwise can't think of anywhere more lovely.

Had a fantastic weekend. The lodges are beautiful, well kept, and in a great location.

For someone with a young family or elderly relatives, these lodges are ideal. Ive stayed in other places around this area, and what makes it so good is the quietness. No backpackers, stag parties, etc.

Will be booking up for next year. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

Stayed in May. Very comfortable, spacious and well equipped lodge in a great location and easy driving distance of lots of things to do. Good places to walk to nearby also. My only gripes would be 2 very minor ones. 1. Use of the word 'luxury' it was a good lodge and good value. It wasn't luxurious though, so over promised and under delivered a bit on that score. There are more accurate words which could be used which wouldn't detract from how good it was. Luxury it wasn't. Sorry.
2. A lot of condensation and the very beginnings of dampness problems were apparent. Not a major issue YET but the Humidifier was not effective In any way.

Overall though. Very pleased and pretty decent value for money.

These lodges are fantastic. I could quite easily live in one. They are lovely and spacious. They are in a quiet location with plenty of wildlife around. I kept my eye out for'rusty' the resident squirrel but unfortunately never got to see him, but the little birds made up for that. Would recommend these lodges to anyone but the only thing I'd say is that they are abit far out. The only place you could get to without needing a car was the inn at ardgour which was easily accessible via the corran ferry. Highly recommend going on the Jacobite stream train which goes from fort William to mallaig (it goes across the viaduct which was in the Harry Potter films for any fans out there). Overall this was a really great break away, will definitely go back!

We stayed for three nights and we enjoyed every moment of our stay. Is a perfect place for family get-aways. Located near Ft.William and is easy to find.The host has all details of the nearby sights and locations in the living room of the lodge. Even if you go there without a plan, you can make one with the details in the lodge. The facilities were excellent.

Will go back next year!

Six adults and two toddlers stayed in this wonderful lodge for 3 nights and we were in no mood to vacate on the day of our return. It has a spacious living room with a well equipped kitchen and dining room. The bed rooms were cosy and very nice. The location was perfect for touring the Highlands. The kids loved the lighting in the living room and they were provided with nice baby beds as well. The lodge has a wonderful info and entertainment room with DVDs and lot of leaflets about touring in Scotland. We didn't have time to use the leisure facilities and golfing but I'm sure they must have been wonderful too. Thank you, John and Birchbrae! Can't wait to come back again sometime!

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful !
