“Stunning setting and views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had a wonderful time with the family in a beautiful rustic setting. Colin is lovely and recommended some fabulous walks with the dog. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area and taking in the views, the scenery is absolutely stunning, peaceful and serine. Our cabin was immaculate and had everything we needed. We are just about to go back for another visit as our last was just fantastic!!

Nearly at the end of a four night break at Killin Highland Lodges!
You can not overstate the setting of these lodges, perfect location with easy access to several villages and local attractions.
The view from our lodge is stunning out over the hills, the lodge itself is set in the side of the hill and on night number one we decided to climb to the top and take in the stunning views (well worth the effort!)
Killin is close by and offers plenty of choice for places to eat, all of the ones we visited were great, and also dog friendly!
Loch Tay is a short drive away and offers peace, tranquility and dramatic views!
Colin is very friendly and welcoming, and a great source of advice on things to do and places to visit!
Our lodge was very clean and everything worked, it has proved to be a perfect base!
As someone who usually always goes abroad on holiday, I have been sold on Scotland and Killin Highland Lodges! Will definitely be returning to explore some more!

I have just concluded a 4 night visit, accommodated in cabin one. Arrived to find the cabin well aired, clean and tidy with all the essentials. I was later greeted by Colin who showed me the ins and outs of the cabin, having read the website properly I was well aware that the electricity would run on a meter and took plenty with me, however in the four nights I used only two or three pounds.

I explained that I was there for some R&R and was left to my own devices as such, but help was always on hand and 3 very happy dogs provided comfort when needed!!!

The lodges are only one mile from Killin itself, slightly further to the falls of Dochart which was simply stunning on one of the hottest days of the year. Aberfeldy and Kenmore on the north shore of the Loch are also comparatively short drive away. There is a good walk up the hill to the back of the lodges that provides a great view down into the village, but do be wary of ticks when walking through the long grass, the owners do have tick removers on site if needed.

On my last night I was treated to some amazing hospitality from Colin, Sarah and a friend of theirs, enjoying great food, wine and company at the fire pit on site. This is a great wee place to relax and although faced with a minor hiccup (details not relevant) when I arrived it was sorted without fuss as soon as it was possible. Have promised to return later in the year...I may even allow the hubby to come next time!!!

Room Tip: Larger groups and families are housed in the higher numbered cabins, if you are not keen on the nois...

We were a group of 9 staying for the weekend for a surprise birthday for my daughter. We were met on arrival and shown to our lovely lodge....

The balcony was large enough for us all to sit around the table in the lovely sunshine.
I would highly recommend the lodges especially the Oak Cabin as it was large enough for large parties....
We will definitely go back to the lodges again.
Friendly, happy people....
Good time was had by all....

Have just returned from staying a week in a birch lodge, I cannot fault the location or the accommodation. We were met by the owner Jim who showed us to our lodge and explained how everything worked, he informed us that his son lived in one of the lodges and was available if there were any problems also he could be contacted on his mobile. The next morning Colin, Jim’s son welcomed us, on learning that we enjoyed walking he immediately lent us a couple of books showing local walks, these came in very helpful and were used every day of our stay. The lodge was very clean with everything that you need for an enjoyable stay, the veranda with its barbecue was put to good use as the weather was fine. It is only a short walk to the village which has a Co-Op, and a number of eating venues, some of which are reviewed on tripavisor. We will be returning to Killin Highland lodges again.

Room Tip: The electric is by coin meter so I suggest that you have some £1 coins with you.

We have just gotten back from a short break in the lodges and really did not want to leave. There were six of us with ages ranging from 12-42 and a rather large dog. The lodge was more than comfortable for all of us, and with two of the rooms having an en suite shower room it was ideal (there was also a large bathroom for the boys). We also had a lovely veranda with a brick barbecue which was great as the weather was fantastic while we were there.
The owners and staff were friendly and helpful and the site is wonderful and perfectly situated.
The was a great walk up the hills directly behind our lodge with the most amazing views from the top.
It is also a lovely walk down to the idyllic village of Killin where there were some nice little cafés, bakeries etc.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to come home and will definitely be visiting again!
