We wanted a geat away from it all holiday, and we certainly found it on Knoydart. We had our teenage daughter with us and she thoroughly enjoyed the walks, the solitude, the food, the wildlife, the trip from the mainland by boat, as did myself and my husband.
The food is excellent and there is plenty of it too. Great packed lunches, with home made bread and cakes.
The views are spectacular and fabulous for photographers.
We were blessed with wonderful weather, and enjoyed our walks, even though we are not experts. Good boots and waterproofs are a must, and I found my walking pole vital for the uphill walk to the road.
The owners are fabulous hosts and nothing is too much trouble.
We particularly enjoyed our mealtimes and the company of the other holiday families who were with us.
We would definately return for another holiday as it was all we anticipated and more.
Congratulations to Doune Stone Lodges on winning their food award - you really deserved it.
