Just spent 3 days over new year at the 10 man lodge. We done this last year 10 of us and loved it so booked it the day after we left for this year. Yet again brilliant lodge brilliant service and just an all round amazing 3 days. So close to Glasgow so not a million miles to travel up north and easy to drive home after. Cabin itself is top notch everyting we needed. Hot tub really set the trip off too. I can't reccomend enough and think no matter when you went I think you would have an amazing time.
I'm writing this on behalf of me and the other 9 people that where there with me. We all loved it.
This was our fourth stay in Lodge 2. Very spacious living area and bedrooms. In the past, five of us have stayed; this time we were four. It very quickly becomes a home from home.
Beds are comfortable. Lodge is very clean. Kitchen is well equipped, including a clothes washer.
Peaceful setting with extremely easy access to Stirling and the major Scottish motorways.
This is the first time we have been in a cooler month and the heating is effective. The wifi internet access is a bit hit or miss, but being a bit disconnected on vacation is not a great loss.
Owners are around if necessary, but not at all intrusive.
Highly recommend the place, and we will stay again.
Had a fantastic weekend with friends and family, the party lodge was stunning, very clean with all mod cons
The owners Mairi and Mark, were very welcoming and easy to contact if we had a query.
The hot tub was lovely and warm and right next to the lodge.
Very easy to get to and close to centre of Stirling, nice and quiet surroundings.
We will definitely be coming back next year!

It's taken me a few months to write this review. I have had a busy summer and I have stayed in a variety of self catering accommodation and these lodges were definitely the nicest. We came at the beginning of April for a hen weekend. From the beginning mairi was so helpful with advice about things we could do and places we could go. The lodges are lovely and luxurious with fantastic hair dryers and lovely hot tubs !! Everything you could need for a girly get together a great big fridge with ice dispenser and lovely tea sets for an afternoon tea. I would not hesitate to return.
Stayed 3 nights for joint 30th celebrations. Great facilities, great rooms, spotless and well maintained. Great location for day trips around Stirlingshire. Thank you to John for being a very accomodating host.
Was at the lodges on the weekend for my sisters hen weekend and had such an amazing time! Everything was so smooth to organise and easy. I visited the lodge when I paid the final balance to see it and it was amazing! I personally don't think the pictures supplied do it justice! It looks good on the pictures but in real life it is just outstanding! I cannot thank John and mairi enough. I kept everything a surprise for my sister and she was over the moon, Mairi came and done her hair for our night out in Saturday and this was amazing. I organised activities and meals out with the recommended sources on their website but this wasn't an issue at all for them and we're happy to help when needed and just a text/phone call away. We are already looking at coming back for an upcoming birthday! Thank you! X x x
We hired out 3 of the 4 lodges and luckily no one else was staying in the 4th therefore we had the place to ourselves. We were also lucky with the weather as it was scorching all weekend and as you can see nothing but countryside around you it feels like you are in the middle of no where! We all live only 20 miles away but all felt like we were on holiday - it had that atmosphere.
The photos shown here and on their website are not of the 'best lodge' they are all decorated and kitted out the same. Felt more like an apartment than a lodge.
In the bedrooms there is one pillow per person on each bed - if you want more, be sure to take them. Bedrooms are both upstairs and downstairs. 3 bathrooms in the Topaz Lodge with showers.
You are provided one body towel each - girls, if you need a hair towel, bring one. Also if you plan on using the hottub it might be better to bring another towel with you as well.
The kitchen has bin bags, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, crockery, cutlery and glasses.
The wifi is good in each lodge. Full size fridge freezer. Tea, Coffee & Sugar provided - bring milk!
Toilet roll is provided - if you need more just ask the owners. They live on site and were on hand when we needed them
There is CCTV all around the outside of the lodges with screens inside so you can see whats going on outside.
Parking onsite beside each lodge.
We used the caterers which I could not recommend enough!! He came on the Friday night and BBQ'd right next to where we were sitting on the decking - Burgers, chicken breasts and sausages - he then came back each morning into each lodge with OJ and pre-cooked rolls on square sausage and rolls on Bacon in little brown bags - AMAZING. Bring sauce for the rolls if you want it.
We sat outside most of the weekend and had loud music playing into the early hours, with the owners living in their house onsite this never seemed to be a problem. It is a great idea for a hen weekend!
