We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Forest Lodges. It was a lovely setting nestled in amongst the trees and really quite secluded. No one was on top of you. Our cabin (no 20) was ideal for 4 adults (one celebrating his 70th!). The beds were comfy and although we didn't have it on the wood burning stove was a great idea. There was everything we needed. We had family from nearby over for a family bar-b-q for the birthday boy and we all managed to enjoy being outside on the deck overlooking the Loch. There are lots of birds, even saw a pair of duks wondering around our cabin. There are plenty of fantastic walks either through the forest or along the loch side. We also hired cycles from the Forest Retreat and made good use of them. The Forest Retreat, a sort of central meeting place where there was lots of information and a place to have a snack or buy any essential groceries was a good "hub". The staff are all great. Very friendly and helpful. The weather wasn't the best all the time, but hey it's Scotland and the beautiful countryside more than makes up for the odd day of misty rain. There's heaps to do in the area and Callander is a great wee town. Can definitely recommend Mhor bread shop which has a great cafe and their Mhor Fish restaurant on the opposite side of the road was wonderful - my husband is still going on about his fantastic meal!
We will definitely be going back to the Forest Lodges and will take the dog as it will be his idea of doggy heaven.
ps The road was awful, but it was going to be overhauled in the next week or two and I'm sure that will be a big improvement.
