This is set in a stunning location. The chalets are set out so that each has it's own space and character. We spent 12 nights at the site and because we were a late booking this was in two different lodges. Both had magnificent views and excellent facilities. We loved waking up to the mountains outside our door and the... More

We have been to Portnellan 6 times and still find new things to do there. The location, accommodation and welcome you get are second to none. There's something very special about opening your curtains in the morning and seeing the glen. Without wishing to sound corney it really is a little piece of heaven. You feel yourself realax as you... More

Cannot recommend Portnellan highly enough. This marks my tenth year here. The lodges are well equipped to a luxury standard. The views are without parallel. The most wonderful place to chill out. Portnellan is centrally located for site seeing in the main cities, viewing the scenery and for outdoors types Munros galore, also bikes and boats on site. The wonderful... More

We stayed in Eagle Lodge last year and Stob Binnein cottage this year, as this larger accommodation was a fit for both our holiday dates and for our larger family group this time. The standout features were the fabulously equipped large kitchen/dining area and also the lounge, the latter awash with tasteful new furniture and large TV and blu-ray player.... More

The large logde (2p), fully equipped is located in a beautiful-quiet-natural habitat with lots of animal species. And a nice walk over Ben More starts at the neighbors !! Unfortunately the weather was not quite as nice as we had hoped therefore the highland games was canceled.(pitty)

A well appointed and relaxing home from home with glorious views and easy access tot he mountains and lakes. We stayed in Pinemarten lodge and found it extremely comfortable, wonderfully light and welcoming. Cameron made sure we had all the information we needed and was on hand with useful advice about where to go and how to get there. Good... More

We had a great time a portnellan! We were lucky enough to get great weather! All of the staff were very helpful! Cameron took us to a nearby waterfall and we got to jump in the water! We hired bikes and took the canoes out on the loch! The lodge was nice and we hired a BBQ which meant we... More

We have stayed here a couple of times....usually over the winter period..... Weather usually bad so don't feel guilty about staying in and only venturing out for dog walks...... Lodges well appointed for cooking up our favourite meals, catching up on box sets and generally being lazy. Very comfy beds always result in the best sleeps! Can't wait till our... More

We were recommended to stay here by a friend who is also related to the owners. Now sometimes you have to take friend's (and especially with family ties) views with a little pinch of alt or temper expectations. WRONG. Everything he said and everything we were told/advised about was exceeded. The location is special (try for 'Kingfisher' lodge), the views... More
