We stayed at Bards Neuk house and have had a splendid week of chilling, fishing, and sight seeing. This house is furnished with wonderful flair, warm and inviting. Also, lots of space with a bedroom on each floor - so great for friends, or families to each have their space. The kitchen full stocked, a nice large dining table for... More

Stayed for 3 nights midweek in August 2016 in a 6 person, and pet friendly, lodge called 'Glen Logie'. I've never taken a pet on holiday before but the lodge was immaculate and wouldn't have known the difference. 'Glen Logie' was perfect - 2 minute walk down to the Cairn O' Mount Bar, Restaurant, the Fisheries and Golf Shop but... More

Alright sized menu with nice options, nothing special all traditional. Servers were very nice and friendly. When food came some of the dishes would of been nicer if they were hotter.

Stayed at Bards Neuk lodge over the Easter holidays and we all had a fabulous time. Lodge is very well equipped with lovely furnishings throughout. No wifi which was a bit of a disaster for the kids. Every room was nice with very comfy beds. The estate itself was great. Very relaxing would definitely recommend it.
