“Best cabin for your break”

This log cabin is fantastic, clean, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. The facilities are second to none and everything is there for your needs and comfort. The area is spotless and walks, hikes, trails and activities are on your doorstep.
The owners contact you to see if you require anything and can not do enough for you.
If you want a relaxing break in the country , then you won't get a better cabin than this one.

What a lovely review, and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Ruskin Lodge! We have put a lot of hard work into making the lodge a home-from-home and it is just wonderful to know that guests such as yourself appreciate it all. You were lovely to host and if we could give you a five star review, we would!

Ruskin Lodge is a fabulous wooden gem at the foothills of some delightful walks. In a glorious location, this property strikes a balance between being near enough to amenities and feeling as though you're in the heart of the countryside. The property was immaculate on arrival, with Abigail having thought of everything. The cabin is wonderfully appointed, homely yet stylish, with generous-sized rooms. The living room is ideal for rest and relaxation and has beautiful big windows to look out at the idyllic surroundings and idly watch the birds and red squirrels. We wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this accommodation and will definitely be back!

I went to the lodge during guy Fawkes night with my two dogs and I have to say it was brilliant , so relaxing the location is great for walking , the dogs loved it as much as I did . The Lodge was superb in every department it's a complete home from home it has everything you would need . The bedrooms are of a good size the living room is lovely and cozy , the lodge heats up pretty quickly and is super comfy , the beds are great I slept like a log , I can't recommend this lodge highly enough is a fabulous place as is the location , il defo be booking again and I hope it's soon , it's only a two hr drive from my home town but it feels a million miles away I had a great weekend. Met the owner Abigail who is a really nice friendly lady.

Having looked for a lodge over several weeks we couldn't believe how lucky we were with Ruskin Lodge. The lodge is spotless and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing and very comfortable stay. The internet was great too which is always an added bonus. The lodge was in an excellent location making wonderful base to springboard to adventures every day. Highly recommended.

“Wish we could have stayed longer.”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spend a delightful weekend at Ruskin Lodge. Red squirrels appeared within ten minutes of our arrival! The lodge is comfy, clean and cosy - the towels are better than the ones we have at home. Wonderful walking/running straight from the front door to Puck's Glen, Benmore and Kilmun arboretum. A short drive takes you to lovely Loch Eck. We picked brambles, marvelled at the fabulous trees and wished we could have stayed longer.
