We have been coming to stay at Forbes of Kingennie for many years now. It is an ideal location for us being close to Dundee where we have family to visit. It is also very convenient for trips out to enjoy either the lovely coastline or up into the highlands. The accommodation is in Scandinavian style wooden lodges with a... More

We stayed at Forbes of Kingennie for two nights between 31st July and 3rd August which also included our wedding on 2nd. We were lucky enough to stay in the Leannan Boathouse for both nights which was absolutely gorgeous and just added an extra special touch to our wedding weekend. The lodge was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. It... More

We stayed in Glen Isla lodge (Thurs-Sat) and it is simply a hidden piece of paradise. The view of the lake was stunning, from both the living room and the main bedroom, and the facilities were excellent. I loved the fact there is currently no wifi in the lodges (something they are working on) There is a TV, DVD and... More

We stayed in one of the lodges for 3 nights, which was fantastic. They are located on the loch side, in a beautiful and tranquil setting. We ate all nights in the restaurant, as the food was so good. The quality of food has certainly improved since our last visit just over a year ago. Service was excellent, our waiter/waitresses... More

Met a friend for dinner and enjoyed a lovely meal sitting watching the fishermen on the Loch. The service was good, the food was tasty and there was a nice choice on the menu at a reasonable price. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Just back from a long weekend at the lodges. The scenery and view of the lake was lovely. However the lodge itself can do with a good update. The decor was ok but the furnishings were dated. The whole lodge could be doing with a spring clean, dropped something on the floor and moved the couch to retrieve it beneath... More

Hi Karen, Thank you for your review.
