Just back from 7 days at 'Wildside' and cannot fault it for anything. We went for a quiet, peaceful holiday and that was EXACTLY what we got. Hot tub every day watching the birds, bats and the hare that 'visited'. The staff couldn't do enough to make us welcome. Jakki, Gareth & Lisa were very friendly and nothing was too... More

Just back from a 3 night stay (too short!). Lodges immaculate, beautiful setting and super friendly staff who all loved our dog Niko as much as he loved the stay:-) We explored Foyer falls, Fort Augustus, Loch Ness boat trip and Drumnadrochit. Went to Urquhart Castle but unfortunately no dogs allowed so admired from afar. Will definitely be back to... More

I am very surprised to read your review.The boiler was fixed the morning you told us it wasn't working. If the weather is humid we do get a few fly's in the Highlands of Scotland. I can only apologize for the fly's around your hot tub. We do give a very accurate description of each type of lodge on our... More

The lodge itself was immaculate which isn't surprising as the previous guests likely left it that way for fear of being charged the £50 housekeeping fee.we also left it spotless,as we don't want to be charged either! It seems guests are expected to clean before they leave which is disappointing as I went on holiday to have a break.I didn't... More

If I can make clear how you have misunderstand the housekeeping charge..... this charge is for people who leave the lodges in a disgusting state, (which people do) meaning they spend a whole week and do not even wash up for a whole week, let alone wipe a kitchen surface. We do not ask you to clean the lodge, but... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here back in May for our 1st year anniversary. We arrived after the reception had closed so we weren't shown the lodge personally, however there was a note with instructions hanging on the door. The lodge was very nice and clean, with a nice little add on of Scottish shortbread and a little bottle of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wildside is a small private holiday park of 16 self catering Lodges and log cabins set along a wooded bank of the River Fechlin that flows into Loch Ness at Foyers on the quiet and beautiful South side of Loch Ness, a scenic gem in the Scottish Highlands. Graded excellent, 4 star quality, by Visit Scotland. Located in the hamlet of Whitebridge off a picturesque B road 3 miles from Loch Ness, 9 miles from Fort Augustus and 24 miles from Inverness, the Highland capital, with excellent road, rail and air links. 200 metres from Wildside Highland Lodges is a country pub serving delicious meals. Information packs in the lodges suggest a variety of places to eat out in the area. Wildside is a great place to escape life, it appeals to those who appreciate a haven of peace and tranquility in a wild and natural setting, rich in wildlife, which is yours to enjoy. Wildside offers a choice of seven categories of lodge accommodating from 1-6 people. The Riverside Lodges are all situated along the river and enjoy private lawns to the riverbank. The spacious One Bedroom Lodges are ideal for couples, situated in the centre of the grounds and are set well apart in large lawns. Guests can wander on the paths to the water’s edge where there is a small beach, popular for barbecues, or a picnic on the riverbank. Our luxury Three Bedroom Log Cabins have open views to the mountains and are situated on the fringe of the holiday park in their own private grounds. All our lodges enjoy magnificent river or mountain views through large picture windows. We make pets welcome 2 per lodge in the riverside lodges and one small breed dog per lodge in the three bed and Hot Tub Lodges. ... more   less
