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

We stayed at Portnellan for two weeks in June. On the first morning after our arrival we woke to Ben More covered in snow, but the following week the weather was absolutely glorious. We stayed in Osprey, which sleeps 4 and is a pet friendly lodge. The beds were comfy and the towels and bedding lovely quality. The lodge was... More

We worked out we've been coming to Portnellan since 2004. If that doesn't sum up how we feel about this beautiful place nothing will. Just stepping out of your lodge and drinking in the view from your balcony every morning is enough to make you want to turn your back forever on anything less. The views must be done of... More

Portnellan is a unique place perfectly located for walking, cycling and fishing and feels remote despite being about an hour's drive from Glasgow. Four of us stayed in a 5* lodge (Pine Martin) which offers the most incredible views over the lochs and into the mountains. The lodge was very comfortable, well equipped, warm and quiet. The estate has a... More

Wonderful place to spend a few days or longer. Friendly helpful staff to make you feel really welcome. Could not have found a better place to spend time between Christmas and New Year. High quality accommodation spectacular scenery and plenty of things to do in the surrounding area of you are feeling energetic, or just kick back and relax.
