“Great Easter break here in April 2013”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Just back from a 3 night break here staying in the log cabins. We found the cabins to be very comfortable, clean and well equipped , a real home from home ! An ideal base to get out and about to explore the surrounding area - we had a great time cycling along the Crinan canal, visited the beach and castle at Skipness which has stunning views of Arran, also drove down to Westport beach which was beautiful , and of course enjoyed the village of Tarbert and the surrounding walks. Also worth noting is the kayak hire and instruction available from Dave at Kayak Majik which you can book via West Loch Shores and is available on site. a great opportunity to try something different and see the sites from a different view !

Weather awful this year so far so very few people here at the end of June. Good for us as we were upgraded to Lodge 5 - a superior lodge for the price of a standard lodge - although the price had dropped by £40 since we had booked - even though we left early for family reasons we were still charged the full price on booking. maybe there is a lesson there - book at the last minute and you'll get the better price!
The superior lodge was functional but a bit worn around most of it's edges, as was the site - when you compare the price to overseas all inclusive package deals it's no surprise the clientele is down and staycations aren't catching on.
Malcolm is a lovely and helpful man so I understand he's earned the rave reviews he's got to date.
The location and views are stunning - Tarbert is ideal for ferries to wherever you go in the western isles and Calmac ferries don't charge for pedal bikes so biking is the way to go - weather permitting.
Golf is great with fun 9 hole courses all around - Carradale is a laugh and Tarbert has stunning views and the hills keep you fit!
The seafood warehouse at the Tarbert ferry terminal is absolutely superb and the fresh shellfish are riduculously cheap - buy and cook yourself - it's the only way to go.

Room Tip: Lodge 5 gets our vote.

My wife booked a long weekend for us recently and we loved it. The resort kindly allowed us to take our two dogs, a black Lab and a Golden Retriever. The staff at the resort were very, very helpful. The resort is a 40 minute walk from Tarbert and the only local taxi is very difficult to book so get in early! The view from our lodge was absolutely breathtaking, I've rarely seen anything like it. We drove south to Mull of Kintyre one day which I'd highly recommend, we walked along Southend beach in 25degree sunshine with a cooling breeze. We ate at the Tarbert Hotel which was revolting and we ate at the Anchor Hotel restaurant which was beautiful. I'd definitely go back to the West Loch Shores lodges.

We rented two superior lodges for a family reunion - the oldest family member was 88 and the youngest 3! All of us were comfortable and marveled at the stunning views of West Loch Tarbert visible through floor to ceiling windows. Excellent kitchens for cooking the seafood we purchased almost every day from the fish sheds in Tarbert. The local butcher is excellent in case you need a change, and the Co-op is well supplied. A magical day out on the island of Gigha - in bright sunshine - made us feel blessed to have landed in this beautiful part of the world. West Loch Shores lodges made our stay!
