“" A lovely place to stay "”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have recently enjoyed a 9 day stay and would recommend these lodges to anyone. The situation is perfect being close to Killin at one end of Loch Tay, and the lodges themselves are clean, comfortable and well equipped. Although some have better views than others they all have nice patio areas which were well used by everyone while we were there due to the good weather. The site is looked after by Colin who is very helpful and does his best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.. All in all we had a great time and will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: If the view is important Lodges 1-4 are better than 5 or 6 for couples.

Dave, thank you for your review of our lodges, again it is nice to see you state "...the lodges themselves are clean, comfortable and well equipped." The patios are a recent addition and are proving to be very popular with our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
Best Wishes

Really good location ideal for seeing Scotland . The site is nice but would benefit from a little attention to detail . Dead plants in pots ,etc . The lodge we stayed in was adequate .Very dark inside as it never got the sun .The decor is dated and contributes to the depressing feeling inside the lodge .
Electric is by a coin meter . The cooker was well past it . The lodge was very clean but had a strong smell of disinfectant .
The site is very dog friendly which is why we chose it . There is a nice walk at the back of the site .
We loved Killin but would not stay here again .

Room Tip: consider the newer lodges .

EK11_11, Many thanks for taking the time to review our lodges. Your comment "The lodge was very clean...." will be appreciated by our hard-working cleaning team. We pride ourselves on being very dog friendly and it was nice that this was picked up on during your stay with us. The walk behind site is indeed a tremendous asset to the park.
We are sorry that there were dead plants in pots however we had some prolonged hot weather and were unable to manage to keep all of our plants watered sufficiently. The lodges are very often admired for the fact they are wooden internally and it may be that the fantastic weather outside may have diminished your experience of the inside of the cabin. Once more thankyou for taking the time to review our lodges.
Cheers
Colin

We stayed in lodge 11 for part of our honeymoon which was absolutely outstanding. Far exceeded our expectations and I could probably happily live in it as my home!
Colin & Sarah who run the site were just a brilliant couple to have met. Both really friendly and interesting folk. It was a pleasure to have met them(and there wonderful perfectly mannered dog Bezie!)
Colin was helpful and had great knowledge of the surrounding area(and many other areas of Scotland if you are travelling after that) and things to do so was great to speak to about that too although we were there just to relax.
It's a 5 minute drive from the nice wee town of Killin, it's 2 minutes from the loch, behind the park is a great hill for walking(we had our 2 dogs and they loved it), the grounds are well kept and it's a nice, quiet area.
Thanks to the good weather and being lucky to have caught Colin & Sarah when they had some time off , we also had the extra bonus of getting invited to a BBQ at there place. Steaks, venison sausages, Sarah's home-made South African hot sauce... it was superb. This just added to our great stay. We will be going back and I'd highly recommend it.

We booked 16 adults into the lodges for a post wedding mock Highland games, we're not the quietest bunch however the lovely owners allowed us to take over the gardens and fire pit area at the far end of the ground and let us get on with the hilarities for 3 full days. The cabins were more than we expected and had absolutely everything we needed to make it a home from home. They were spotless as we're the grounds and the scenery....well Mother Nature has done a fantastic job there. The owners provided us with 2 portable bbq's ( each cabin has a static one) and They also gave us a large parasol to take to the fire pit in the woods. It was fantastic that we were able to take our little dog too. Thank you Killin lodges for helping us have a fantastic start to our marriage. Roll on next year for the anniversary games if you'll have us. Tricia and Tony Gray x

Tricia M We are delighted with your judgement that the lodges were "spotless"and that you enjoyed your stay so much. Glad too that the fire bit and BBQ provided a focus for your group
Your mock Highland Games were hilarious to the onlooker with flying wellies being sent into random orbits!!! We look forward to seeing the anniversary games next year. Cheers Jim

To Colin and Sarah the perfect Hosts at one of the most beautiful outdoor holiday sites in Scotland. The three of us from South Africa had a wonderful time in very comfortable and spacious accommodation. The setting just outside Killin town is magnificent. Their dog Bezi is absolutely adorable and we would have loved to take her home with us.WE will certainly come back . Once again well done .

Room Tip: All the rooms are good as far as we could ascertain

Thank you for your very positive review of your recent stay with us and we are delighted that you found Colin and Sarah so welcoming. Bezi is very popular with visitors but alas cannot be taken home as so many have indicted that they would like. We hope your trip back to South Africa goes smoothly Best wishes Jim

Nice short break for my 30th, fourth time here but in one of the smaller lodges.still to as high a standard as the larger lodges.was close to stealing bezi the dog, such a cutie and who became like part of the furniture.one of best parts aside from the Peacefulness and gorgeous scenery has to be the added firepit.perfect for toasting marshmallows on and relaxing around with a glass or two with friends and family.will definitely be back!
