I don't really know where to start! The only way this entire weekend could have been any better, would have been if it had lasted longer. We stayed in Kingennie Court North, Friday to Monday. We were a party of 10 adults, and this was a perfect setting for a family get together to celebrate. Everything was perfect, even the... More

We were here for a wedding this month. We stayed in the lodges and they were brilliant. The kitchen was very well equipped with both dishwasher and washing machine. The lounge and dining area were furnished well and there is sky and DVD players available. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were both nicely tiled and one had... More

We did not pick Kingennie as a holiday location but instead visited it to attend a family wedding. I cant not thank the Bride and Groom enough for the choice they made. The location is stunning.

Although the surroundings of our lodge (Glen Isla) were beautiful, and the staff very friendly, this supposedly 4* lodge was dirty, and tired looking which was a big dissapointment. We had to clean the floor before our best friend could get ready for her wedding day in the lodge, for fear that the unclean surroundings would soil her beautful dress.... More

We have come to this venue for a week's holiday nearly every year for many years. Every time it is a very enjoyable experience. The lodges are excellent, the restaurant is excellent and the location is wonderful with fishing lakes and a golf course.
