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 visited the Waterside Restaurant on Sunday 15th March for a Mother's Day meal. We had called to make a table reservation around 2weeks earlier - we were informed that they were fully booked for high teas at the time we had requested, but the member of staff was very polite and accommodating, and after discussion with the chef, our...

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. This made it a real bargain but even if we had paid the regular rate it is still very reasonable for a 3 night stay at this time of year. It was... More

Just back from 3 night break at forbes and had a great time. Stayed with husband in glen isla lodge and only complaint would be lodge decor was a bit dated and living area would be cramped if 4 people wanted to chill out but for the 2 of us it was really comfortable. There are lodges nearby but we... More

Was lucky enough to be at Forbes of Kingennie for a business event. Staff were first class in this family run venue close to the centre of Dundee, but with a real feeling of space and the countryside. A fantastic lunch of local produce was on show and all the boxes for a great venue were ticked. Will be back... More

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.
