It’s furnished like our other lodges to create a warm sense of times past, but with the added amenities of a conservatory and spacious separate kitchen that includes a dishwasher, washing machine and even a breadmaker. From the conservatory, you can enjoy your breakfast in front of panoramic loch and mountain views, or focus in more closely to watch the pine martens play.

About the neighbourhood
Great Glen Lodges are in a really special and remote but accessible part of the Highlands, just near Loch Ness. The site is on the shore of Loch Lochy, which joins Loch Oich and Loch Ness via the Caledonian Canal. We provide self-catering accommodation—each cabin has its own kitchen, in which guests prepare their own meals. Because this area of Scotland is quite remote, we suggest that guests buy food and other provisions from one of the nearest big towns like Fort William (27 miles) before they get here. Although there are shops nearby, many guests will be arriving too late to find them open. The wonderful pubs and restaurants near us tend to serve food until only about 8pm, and some are open seasonally only from March or April.
Getting around
Navigation: Our postcode is PH34 4EB. Enter Great Glen Lodges, Kilfinnan, PH34 4EB into your GPS/Sat Nav or online map service to get here. Note that some GPS/Sat Navs might tell you that you have reached your destination when you get to Kilfinnan Farm. We’re a bit further on from the farm, however. Just carry on up the hill and along the track a little way until you reach the Great Glen Lodges sign at the top of the road. Please also be aware that the last quarter-mile or so is an unadopted rough-track road. Though it gets regraded each year, it can sometimes be quite bumpy, so a bit of care needs to be taken. A normal car can easily negotiate the track, but you’ll want to drive slowly and not rush things.
