Visited here for the first time on a gloriously sunny April afternoon. We had a nice walk all round the "policies" which were very nicely landscaped indeed, a most attractive setting. Popping in for coffee, we then stayed for high tea. Tea, toast, fresh haddock and chips and delicious peas, then a selection of cakes and scones ( which were... More

I stayed for a weekend with a group of 10 guys in one of the lodges (something North) and it was fantasic. The lodge was a great size and the single beds made it ideal for a same sex group. Wifi was in place which helped to keep an eye on the Ryder cup as dos sky sports in the... More

Blessed with a lovely day on Easter Sunday, we decided to head out to Forbes of Kingennie for a high tea. The staff are extremely helpful and pleasant, food was plentiful and tasty and reasonably priced. Cakes , scones nice too. The setting is very pretty, nice for a wee walk after tea around the loch.

This was booked as part of a birthday weekend away for a few of us. The lodge we stayed in was ok and could be doing with an upgrade. We booked a champagne breakfast for the Saturday morning (and received Prosecco). I had the full Scottish and it was ok and would have been better if it had been served... More

Hi Phil, Thank you for your review. We have taken on board your comments about our lodges, our Woodland lodges are more classically decorated however they are refreshed every year. Our larger lodges are more contemporary and may be better suited to yourself and your party should you choose to stay with us again. I am deeply sorry about the... More

Me and my husband stayed at the beautiful, cosy and quirky boathouse on an Itison deal on 27/28th February. Find it difficult to fault as it is just lovely. It has a huge spa bath in the bathroom which takes quite a while to fill so the addition of a walk-in shower would be a bonus for mornings. We ate... More

We have just returned from a weekend at Forbes of Kingennie in the Glen Finlet lodge courtesy of an Itison deal which included canapes and prosecco on arrival.
