We booked one of the larger lodges with distant views over the golf course.

The large open plan living room worked well for relaxing and dining with such a large party. The kids loved the space which gave the adults a chance to relax.

Lovely walks around the grounds. Tried a bit of fishing. One of the guys who supplied the rods came over to see how we were getting on and even gave me a fly fishing lesson and I caught a trout.

We had an excellent stay.

Accommodation:
We stayed at Forbes of Kingennie for 3 nights for a family 80th Birthday Celebration in December. Our lodge slept 10 and there was plenty of room for the children to play safely. The underfloor heating kept us cosy and we appreciated having logs delivered for our stove in the expansive living room. The kitchen was very well equipped and we made full use of it.
Activities:
Do try out the fishing, we aren't experts, and the staff showed us how. They were genuinely keen to see we had a good experience on the fishing ponds, and we caught two trout.
Also there is a lovely circular walk starting at the back of the big lodges and coming back down through the golf course, great for working off the food and wine.
Dining:
We ate in the restaurant once and both the service and food were excellent, try the Sirloin, thick and cooked to perfection. Between us we ate most of the dishes on the menu all were very good. It was good to see a proper piece of fresh fish on the kids menu.
There were twelve in our party and we were all pleased, the staff were upbeat and informative. Ideal for an extended family get together.

I recently had my wedding at forbes of kingennie, and it was fantastic. The staff were all very helpful, thanks to colin and maureen for making my day run smoothly even after a member of the wedding party took unwell and an ambulance needed to be called. The venue itself is in a beautiful location, and the cleanliness was impeccable, the staff friendly and helpful. The lodge house was again beautiful and clean, we had other family members staying in different lodges and all commented on the high standard of the accommodation. We would highly recommend forbes of kingennie as THE place to have a wedding. Thank you to all the staff invoved with the planning and organisation of our wedding, you all helped to make our day perfect.

We recently held an evening meeting at Forbes of Kingennie and would highly recommend the venue to all. The staff were professional, friendly and very accommodating. Everything was done exactly as we'd asked.
Prior to the meeting we had a brilliant meal off the bar menu. We couldn't fault any aspect of the evening and wouldn't hesitate to hold a meeting here again.
