Had an excellent break at the country resort. I cannot it recommend it highly enough. The staff are fantastic and so friendly, knowledgable and helpful and the resort is spotless in terms of cleanliness.

Had a long weekend break on an Itison deal, personal circumstances meant that the weekend we planned did not live up to expectations but in no way was it anything to do with the resort. The reason I mention it is that it meant that we could not enjoy much of what the resort had to offer. We arrived about... More

This is the 6th time we have been to the leannan boat house at forbes of kingennie and each time is wonderful. We even had a chrismas tree in the house which I thought was a nice touch, it has everything you need.
