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.

Stayed in the Kingfisher Lodge earlier this month. If you want peaceful 5* accomodation with views to die for and and an abundance of nature then look no further. The attached photos were taking through the patio window, but who can complain about deer dawn and dusk and the woodpecker evicting the tits and finches from the lodge feeder. -... More

My wife and I were looking for somewhere scenic to stay for our 1 year anniversary and after reading some reviews we decided on Portnellan and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. We booked a 4 star lodge but on arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a 5 star lodge which was a lovely... More

Stayed for a weekend at the lovely Ghillies lodge with my family for a relaxing weekend and it was definitely that. On arrival we saw a beautiful stag and hind and on the Saturday watched as an Osprey was fishing at the loch, the scenery was absolutely beautiful. The lodge itself was really nice, we managed to get the master... More
