We have just returned form spending a week at Lochanhully in one of the refurbished lodges (number 9). While the accommodation is on the small side, it was an ideal base for visiting the stunning scenery of the surrounding area. There were 5 of us, 2 adults, 2 boys age 4 and 6 and a 6 month old baby who... More

We booked this on an exchange with our Timeshare Company. The lodges are set in some very pretty woodland and there are a number of facilities on site and in the nearby area. We went primarily to experience the walking & skiing over February half term. The lodge we were first offered was very dark (even with all the lights... More

we purchased our first week at Lochanhully 27 years ago. ( we now own 2 weeks ) We have only missed 2 years ( through illness ). Having read several bad reports , can we make it clear ............................................................. Lochanhully is NOT for everyone - if you are after hectic nightlife / shopping/5star accomodation etc , you will be disappointed.... More

We booked here at last minute for a 4 night break and found it great value for money. Lochanhully is a collection of lodges built around a trout lake with lots of wildlife, including red squirrels, and is lovely and peaceful. We stayed in lodge 32 which was a little dated and dark but it was well equipped including towels... More

The cabins need a bit of updating, but it's quite a reasonably priced place for what you get. Lots of wildlife for kids to get excited over. (Ducks and rabbits) swimming pool is fine but bar area never had much going on when we were there. (July) I was there to rest after op, so it did the job perfectly.we... More

This is our third visit to Lochanhully in successive years and we thinks it's a great central base for hillwalking, winter sports, general sightseeing and enjoying some wonderful meals in some great hotels/restaurants. This year, we had Woodland Cottage No.6 which was very close to the Reception/Clubhouse complex and also had a great view from the conservatory over the loch.... More

This was our first time at Lochanhully and I couldnt fault it. We arrived with our 2 dogs and had a brilliant apartment with an enclosed front garden which made life easier. The quality of the complex overall couldnt be faulted. The staff were extremely helpful and always pleasant. We ate in the bar one night with friends and had... More

Just back from a short break at this place, I was a little concerned over some for the reviews posted here, however none of them are well founded. The lodges are well equipped and maintained. You pay for your electricity when you leave, which as the cabins are electrically heated is more if you are there in the winter. If... More

We were surprised that this resort was part of a chain.....it has all the charm and qualities of a family run business. The staff were lovely, the lodge was spotless, the beds were just the most comfy I have ever slept in and the kitchen (described as a "mini-kitchen) was better than the resort we stayed in the previous week...
