Weakening up to such beautiful scenery on Christmas morning was just fantastic and something I would not forget. The cabin was warm and comfortable and very clean it had everything you needed and more. The reception area had a variety of items...

Yet again another fabulous visit. Gorgeous scenery, lovely accommodation, great service. Over the years we have fed back to Cameron and his team and he listens and improves year on year. You must visit. It's just THE place to stay as a base to explore this part of Scotland. Not cheap but if you want cheap, bring a tent....

I visited 27-30 October. There were 4 of us and the main 'aim' of the little getaway was to get some good hikes in, as the site is in walking distance of a couple of munros. Staying here definitely enhanced the experience. The little cabin provided amazing views and plenty of cooking utilities. The cabin was always warm which is...

We had a long weekend at Portnellan to celebrate a family birthday. The cabins are really comfortable and well equipped, absolutely fantastic views of Ben More too! There is an extra charge for electricity however the first £20 is free and this more than covered what we used, including heating on in early morning and evenings. Cameron the owner is...

We had booked the Gamekeeper for a long weekend break for a family of four. We just loved the location and the picture window in the lodge was an ever changing scene as the light from the sunset crept across the valley. The lodge was very clean and comfortable and the kitchen was surprisingly well equipped. Cameron called in to...

Stayed in Kestral on a 2 night stay with family including 2 children.

Beautiful surroundings but I have to question how long it is since the Scottish Tourist Board rated the lodge (Stalker) we were staying in as Four Stars. It was clean and tidy but quite dated looking inside. We were also without showering facilities for the first 2 nights of our 3 night stay as the valve in the mixer tap...

Very beautiful scenery and good host but less activities for the children and the way in and out the area is long and the road was little hard as we are not used to mountain roads... Good for adults and people who want to have relaxing time disconnected from the world as the cellular phone have no signal at all!...

We have just spent a week in the Ptarmigan Lodge and we couldn't fault the accommodation, cleanliness, facilities and staff. Nothing was too much trouble, especially for the owner, Cameron. The lodge was spotlessly clean throughout and had everything to hand to enable us to have a wonderful, family orientated week and the setting was stunning with spectacular views. We...
