We stayed in the Teepee accommodation on the Loch Tay Highland Lodges site, the location is great for touring Loch Lomond. The teepees are also great in theory, but in practice, this place obviously doesn't understand that budget accommodation does NOT mean dirty accommodation. 2/5 reflects a lovely location to tour the area, the teepee would get 0/5 purely due to the complete lack of cleanliness.
The Teepee we stayed in was very cute from the outside and inside was warm,spacious and had a private bathroom and kitchen, all ok so far, but unfortunately everything in the place was grimy. Mould on the ceilings and walls, stains on the carpets, cobwebs everywhere and you had to wash your hands after you'd touched the window blinds - YUK! The shower was also filthy (hairs and soap scum) and was also riddled with black mould!
In the sleeping/living area there were 2 lights (ceiling light and a lamp), both had shades that were broken and the sofa bed, which looks quite new, creaked incredibly loudly and was more uncomfortable than sleeping on the ground. The 2nd night we stayed we didn't bother using it and just used our camping rolls on the floor. We'd booked the teepee for a few nights as an 'upgrade' from the rest of our week of camping but had we known how rank this place was we'd have camped instead despite the rain. Really not worth the money.
On the site there were some cabins, yurts and bigger lodges that looked very nice from the outside (I hope they have better housekeeping!) although the site as a whole seemed a bit unloved and needed some maintainance, massive pot holes in the road etc.
Overall, avoid these teepees like the plague - dirty rip off.
