This place is amazing - it is such a little hidden gem... not far from Loch Ness only about 5-10 mins drive!
The owner Simon was great, he was such a nice host greeting us when we arrived, showing us the lodge and all the information we required to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible! We were a family of 4 with a 5 months old baby and stayed at lodge 5 - the lodge itself was lovely and clean, I paid extra for a travel cot and high chair which were all set up when we arrived. There were also milk, tea, coffee and a packet of biscuits provided in the kitchen with a little note which was really thoughtful - a little bit of a personal touch :) They also provide you with DVDS, games, CD, books in the lodge which I thought it was very thoughtful too!!
The scenery was great, although the weather wasn't great but when you looked out the window, the view took my breaths away...
How the electric works is that you put money in the meter - Simon the host/owner has already put some money in for us to get started and over the weekend we did turn the heating on as it was quite cold however it didn't cost us a lot of money at all...
Overall I am really happy to have found this lodge as this wasn't the original lodge I was going to stay - as the other lodge was full I was then referred/recommended to this lodge and I have to say not disappointing at all!! In fact we drove past the lodge we were going to stay and I have to say this lodge looks far better!! Also the value of money is excellent!!
Thank you Simon for making our stay so special and wonderful - we will definitely come back again soon, hopefully nicer weather next time :)
