“Fantastic”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This is the best holiday rental I have ever experienced. The welcome from steff was lovely with a basket of supplies and home baked bread. She is very knowledgeable about the area. The lodge was set in the most amazing surroundings with wild life and birds. It was so peaceful. The lodge has been finished to a really high standard. It was warm cosy very clean and well equipped. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely want to return. Thank you Steff

“wonderfull warm and cosy”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Every year we come back in the highlands in January with the sidecars. And every year we rent a holiday house. This was the best one we have in 9 years. And the first one we said that we will be back next year. A warm welcome when we arrived by the owners. Lovely setting on a working farm. Straight away I fell in love with the cows. The good thing is that you can go so many ways for touring from this house it never gets boring. tthe house is warm and everything you need is there.

“Warm and very comfortable in a lovely location”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My husband and & I stayed here for a week in January. We came to relax after a busy Christmas period and to do some landscape photography. The cottage was absolutely first class. Very warm and comfortable and so much space. Delightful views from all rooms (including the en-suite!). Well appointed kitchen, very comfortable lounge area and our bedroom was pretty big with a lovely outlook. Enjoyed mixing with the inquisitive Highland cows and walked up to the forest track at the back of the lodge and eventually back across the fields and through the wood. Not many birds around whilst we were there which was a shame. Only minor criticism is the very bumpy, potholed track to the cottage from the main road. We went hoping for snow, but unfortunately it didn't snow or rain all week! It was warmer than back in the Midlands! Steph and Bill were extremely welcoming and informative and the welcome basket, plus the home made flan were lovely. Would definitely recommend Lochan Lodge.

“Fabulous home and views!”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This beautiful home sits on multiple acres of rolling farmland with spectacular views and Highland cows. There were even two new baby calves born just before we arrived. The house is very large and much better equipped than I have seen in other rentals. Bill and Steph were great hosts. They welcomed us with basket of food and some grocery essentials, which was very appreciated. The house is centrally located with access to multiple major sties and activities. We would definitely come back.

“Excellent return holiday”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Returned to the lodge after a very successful holiday last year with friends. After a warm welcome we settled in to have one of the most relaxing holidays of my life.
Property ideal for two families as there are two wings each with their own facilities. Plenty of wild life and good restaurants / takeaways close by.
