Gamekeeper is one of the most popular properties on the Portnellan Estate. With breath taking views to the East I often see people taking in the amazing sunrise from their private balcony.

With a spacious open plan kitchen, living and dining area the property benefits from large double glazed windows leading to a private patio with garden furniture, offering unrestricted East facing views over Glen Dochart, the river, Loch Iuibhair (pronounced Ewar) and the surrounding mountains. A truly magnificent Highland setting and a view that will be hard to beat from a self catering holiday property in Scotland.

With all the comforts from home (and more) the Gamekeeper is equipped to a 4 star standard with a king size double bed in the master bedroom and large single beds in both twin bedrooms with separate bathroom, bath with shower over.

Our group of six walkers and climbers were touring the Highlands and came upon Portnellan by chance. We stayed for one night in a three-bed highland lodge and were delighted. The lodge was very well equipped and in a superb location at the foot of Ben More (which we climbed in the afternoon).

Charlotte made us feel very welcome and we were all impressed with the level of hospitality and the availability of indoor games and DVDs at no extra cost. The honesty box in the reception shop was also a nice touch. I will definitely be returning to Portnellan for a longer stay very soon.
