We were guests ar stuart and sharon mcsorleys wedding on sunday 3rd jan. We had a great day..relaxed..organised and the food and entertainment was brilliant. Drinks werent over priced either. When sharon told us the wedding was here we were over the moon as we had such a good holiday previously. Once again Forbes didnot disappoint.

I was looking for somewhere to take my elderly aunt for lunch. We wanted somewhere warm on a cold day, a nice menu at a reasonable price and no rush. We found all of that and more. Friendly staff. Lovely surroundings a real gem that we would visit again.

Lovely venue and fantastic lodge, couldn't ask for more. We stopped in a lodge that housed ten people and we had plenty of room with a good standard of presentation and lots of room to move around so we weren't under each other's feet. The only thing I would complain about is the breakfast it was rather poor for the... More

We had a lovely wee break staying in a dog friendly lodge. The setting is lovely and paradise if you're into golf or fishing. The grounds are well maintained, with some nice country paths for dog walks. Also a short walk to the small village of Wellbank, which has a small shop. It's great to have a bar/diner on sight,...
