It felt like we were drving on Mars when we approached Whitebridge/Wildside.
However, the location is superb, with amazing scenery and nearby waterfalls, rivers, lochs and of course the big one (Loch Ness).
We stayed in a 1bedroomed lodge (Salmon) for 7-nights during mid-November.
The lodge was warm and welcoming on arrival, with modern and very spacious rooms!The lodge was surrounded by wildlife (red breast robins, rabbits, pheasants and many other birds).
It was a quiet, tranquille setting alongside a lovely river.
The site was rather small, but very friendly (owners Keith and Carol were very accommodating).
I would recomend these lodges to couples and friends who would fully appreciate the beauty that this remote area of Scotland has to offer.
In closing, we both enjoyed a relaxing week-long stay here, and we'll definately return in the Summer 2010.
