I stayed here for a few days with friends. We loved our wee cabin and thought the setting was idyllic. The highlight of the trip was when we went canoeing, we almost had the loch to ourselves and the whole experience was incredibly peaceful. The staff were friendly and very accommodating too. The gent in the lovely wee gift shop... More

Maybe a bonus if you hate dogs, but for a place to accommodate dogs in the lodges yet not have any land on site where a dog can actually walk is not really dog friendly. Especially, when the staff have two dogs that roam freely all over the picnic area where one of the "no dogs" sign is, and make... More

To say we are not dog friendly is a little inaccurate in its context. "Great play spaces for kids" and we would like to keep these play areas free from the droppings of dogs whose owners don't pick up. We have 100 yards of sandy beach and some grass that we cut for picnicking. We do not encourage dogs in... More

Back again on our annual holiday to Aviemore, and we couldn't not visit Loch Insh. Beautiful scenery overlooking the Loch. Great walks, including kids play parks. Great fun to take out a kayak or two! Or simply watch the windsurfers! Lovely place to spend an hour or two with a cup of tea and cake, plus the odd game of... More

Best Fish and Chips in the valley. Fish is so fresh it's worth paying the extra for. And the views across Loch Insh are beautiful and so relaxing. There's always something to watch, whether it be windsurfers or birdlife. The last time we were there an osprey was fishing just outside the restaurant!

Restaurant has lovely views but was disappointed with the food. Overpriced for what it was, tasteless burgers and bland childs pasta. Coke was nearly flat. Wouldnt go back in a hurry.

My friends and I recently rented some bikes for a day hoping to take them down the hills around where we were staying. Within thirty minutes, I had to bring one of them back and went through four other bikes before one had breaks and gears that actually worked. Whilst we were out, one of the bike's chains snapped up... More

We are very sorry that your day was delayed with your bike hire. It turns out that the person issuing the bikes was doing so from a group of bikes which had been put to one side for maintenance. I am very grateful to you for repairing the chain which from time to time do break. I am also sorry... More

We hired canoes here, as we have done before. Staff really helpful, if a bit busy, and thankfully relaxed. Toilets could do with a good clean.
