Recently spent a fantastic week at Drimsynie. We stayed in an "Eagle" lodge which was first class. It had obviously just been refurbished and was a real "home from home" - from the comfy leather suite through to the brand new and fully equipped kitchen.
The only gripe I have about the accommodation is the cost of the electricity. We were charged just over £20 for one week's electricity - seems a bit high when you consider there were only 2 of us and we were out all day every day...
The leisure centre at Drimsynie was excellent - prices were very reasonable and staff were always very helpful.
We didnt go to the weekly dinner dance but ate at the Rob Roy bar a couple of times and the food was very nice, with very friendly staff.
We brought our dog with us and had to pay a supplement for this. One of the conditions was that the dog was not allowed to be left alone in the lodge at any time. However, we were not allowed to take him in to the bar area either within the Estate or the two pubs in Lochgoilhead...This meant a very "dry" week for us!! I appreciate that dogs shouldnt be allowed where food is being served but all of these places had separate bar areas only, where no food was served. I do think they could be a bit more pet friendly - they are quite happy to take your money for bringing the pet in the first place....
Lochgoilhead and the surrounding area is beautiful and there are many walks to try, some testing and some not so. Unlike a previous review, we did not have any problem at all with speeding cars, indeed, we felt that all drivers were very considerate.
All in all, we would have no hesitation in recommending Drimsynie and Lochgoilhead for an extremely relaxing and peaceful holiday.
