Accommodation was flawlessly presented on arrival with a number of lovely touches such as the fire being lit, a welcome pack etc.
The view from the lodge (and the hot tub) is stunning over looking a small loch. We wanted somewhere quiet but beautiful and we weren’t disappointed.
From the lodge there is lots to do including Schiehallion to climb, Falls/House of Bruar, Rannoch Station/Rannoch Moor, Kenmore, Glen Lyon etc.
Mandy and Ian were also great hosts.
All in all we couldn’t have asked for more and have some wonderful memories of our trip....we can’t wait to come back.
When we were introduced to this property on arrival by owner Mandy our already high expectations were immediately surpassed. The hot tub on the balcony overlooking Loch Kinardochy is serviced daily and a night time soak under dark starry skies is wonderful. We found the sauna to be a great start to the day.
The property is very well supplied with essentials and additional items one would not normally expect to find. The layout is very spacious and comfortable, we immediately felt relaxed and “at home”. We will be back!
Lodge was amazing beyond our expectations, everything was provided that we needed. Very secluded with gorgeous views. Hot tub and sauna were an added bonus along with the sound system and the variety of dvds. We will definitely be returning for another visit
Having studied the web site we arrived with very high expectations, only for them to be exceeded. The view to the little loch is fabulous and great for birdwatching! The cabin is fitted out with no expense spared and really left nothing to be desired. Also the bed was extremely comfortable. Although there is a road going past the back of the cabin, there was very little traffic - probably less than 10 cars an hour at peak times and almost nothing in the night - so the setting could hardly be more peaceful. In fact it was a cuckoo calling outside that woke us in the morning, wish it could always be like that!
My husband and I have just returned from a long weekend in Braes Lodge. I could not recommend this getaway enough. Quiet, peaceful and romantic in every way.
Sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine watching the sun go down was first class!
Hopefully if we get the chance we will return soon. I was very upset to leave :(

We had the most wonderful 3 night stay at Braes Lodge and thought that Mandy was the perfect host. The lodge was so cosy with a magnificent log burning fire, fabulous sauna (which we loved being able to set to our temperature and timings) as well as a luscious hot tub. The views were stunning and Mandy has been so considerate and thoughtful when completing the interior of the lodge and adding all the accessories. From a gorgeous hamper filled with lovely goodies, freshly laid eggs from the hens just outside to the super comfy bed, towels and dressing gowns, we had a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating break and will be back again as soon as we can!
Lots of nice things to do in the local area and only a short drive to Pitlochry and Aberfeldy where there are loads of coffee shops, little gift shops, nice walks and places to eat. However most of the time EE ended up cooking simple meals in the lodge as we didn't want to spend much time away from it!
Thank you so very much Mandy - we arrived exhausted and so needing a peaceful escape and we left feeling like a million dollars. Looking forward to our next visit already!
Lots of love Vicky and Pete xx
This was our second trip to Braes Lodge where the introduction of a sauna room to an almost perfect set up was very enjoyable and welcomed. We were just looking to chill and relax for the three days we were there. Having experienced the lodge before we were not disappointed by the exceptionally high spec this accommodation offers at a very reasonable price hence why we returned. All the luxury extras and special touches from the toiletries, slippers and gift basket are all great touches to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Mandy and Ian have thought of everything here. This lodge has all the mod cons and with its beautiful views has it all, a real gem for a couple wanting some 'us time' .
