“Fantastic Property”
Reviewed June 18, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

My partner and I stayed here as it was a central location to where we were looking at touring around different parts of Scotland. It is a fantastic little Gate Lodge in beautiful surroundings and in the cooler evenings has a lovely wood stove.
We cannot highly recommend this property enough, and will definitely be returning in the near future!

“Heaven”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here on our honeymoon for a week and it was the most beautiful location anyone can imagine. The estate is run by Deirdre and Alex who are the most wonderful people you can meet. They are there if you need them however respect your privacy. The gate lodge was spotlessly clean, warm and inviting with a really comfortable bed. The woods are beautiful to walk in and the estate is close to Newtonmore if you need petrol , groceries or a good pub! We will return! Thanks for a great stay!

“Stunning location and spotless accommodation”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The accommodation is perfect for exploring Loch Ness, Fort Augustus and the Ben Nevis gondola. We enjoyed walks around the Glentruim Estate in the evening. The area is stunning and the accommodation is amazing, clean and comfortable. We were very lucky with the weather. I could only wish we had more time in Highlands.

“Perfect Place”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our family stayed here in April 2015 for a week. Deirdre was very helpful when we initially enquired about booking. We arrived on a dark, dreich Saturday afternoon and as soon as we approached the gate lodge found it extremely welcoming with lamps and heating on for our arrival. Directions to the lodge were clear and access easy.

The lodge exceeded our expectations - it was spacious and the furnishings, linen and towels were great quality. Books and dvds were available in the lounge which had comfy sofas and table and chairs for dining. It was extremely clean, warm and homely. The bathroom was roomy with roll top bath, heated towel rail and separate, powerful shower. We used the woodburning stove during our stay - however the heating was more than adequate to make the lodge cosy. We ended up cooking dinner in the lodge each evening as we were keen to get back, enjoy the spectacular views, get the fire lit and relax with a glass of wine.

We enjoyed the surrounding area, visiting the highland wildlife park, Laggan wolftrax, highland folk museum, landmark adventure park as well as exploring the castle grounds.

We would highly recommend Glentruim Gate Lodge and Estate to friends and family.

“A delightful haven”
Reviewed February 7, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This cottage is in a lovely haven in a beautiful and peaceful location yet with easy access to the A9 and all the sights and attractions within the Cairngorms. The photos do not do the cottage justice. It's exceedingly well equipped and very tastefully furnished. A complete joy to return to after a days out winter walking or on the mountains as it was so wRm & cosy. We would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage and plan to return again.

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here with us at Glentruim Estate, and that Gate Lodge met with your approval. I must agree, the photographs do not do the cottage, nor its location, justice, but we hope to update the photographs on the website very shortly.
We would love to welcome you back in future.

“Everything we hoped for”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My wife, our eldest son and I have just had a wonderful stay at the Gate lodge. The previous reviews about Deidre are spot on: she was very welcoming, yet respectful of your privacy. The Lodge is very well appointed and clean. The dishwasher and washer/tumble drier worked really well and we also enjoyed the log burner on wetter days. The kitchen/diner is a good size and the Lodge would comfortably put up four people, assuming a double bed and two singles is an agreeable arrangement! The wireless Internet was also very useful to us. There are a couple of bird tables and after putting out a little food, we saw a variety of birds, including a woodpecker. The view outside the Lodge is spectacular and every evening we sat at the table and chairs with a glass of wine just enjoying the changing scenery. Beautiful walks can also be enjoyed around the estate and there is no shortage of things to do in the area. This holiday was everything we hoped for and we had a wonderful time here.
