Management response:

We are very sorry that the lodge did not reach your expectations. We have reviewed all images and they reflect the decor and size of the property. There are table lamps in all rooms.

The route passes below the 'Paper Cave' on the slopes of Clach Bheinn, where it is said the Campbells of Argyll hid their legal documents for safe-keeping during times of trouble. Clach Bheinn and its neighbouring hills offer various challenges for a fit party with h...
