The lodge is perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway, friends looking for an escape to the country and families in need of some quality time together. There are a wealth of activities to enjoy in the area - from horse-riding to sailing, golfing to fishing. The lodge is great for dog walkers and hikers can explore the vast network of tracks and trails through forests and along shores and we are within easy reach of the Arrochar Alps. Double-glazed throughout and recently refurbished to a high standard, this traditional log cabin is the perfect home-from-home. It is cosy, well-equipped, tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. The veranda is gated and we have blackout curtains in the bedrooms.

The lodge is great for dog walkers and hikers can explore the vast network of tracks and trails through forests and along shores and we are within easy reach of the Arrochar Alps. Double-glazed throughout and recently refurbished to a high standard, this traditional log cabin is the perfect home-from-home. It is cosy, well-equipped, tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. The veranda is gated and we have blackout curtains in the bedrooms. The twin bedroom has full-sized beds suitable for adults and children and can be converted into a comfortable double or even a study. Guests are provided with hotel-quality luxury towels and bed linen at no extra cost. A new kitchen has been installed with an induction hob, steam oven, quiet dishwasher, extractor fan and under-cabinet lighting. The kitchen is well equipped with quality cookware and utensils. NEW Italian leather sofas are a lovely new feature of the living room - they are soft but sturdy and very, very comfortable! The famous Puck's Glen walking trails begin behind the lodges and Benmore Botanical Gardens are a short walk away along a scenic track. The lodge is one of a small group that form the quiet, privately-owned Lamont Lodges which see many visitors returning year after year. You can relax on your own private covered veranda and take in the surrounding forests and mountains. We regularly see red squirrels, many types of birds and deer. We look forward to welcoming you to Ruskin Lodge. Please note that £30 electricity allowance is included in week-long stays and £15 for short stays from 1st April-1st September. Usage above this, and at other times of the year, is charged at cost price (currently 14.385p per kWh (day) 10.185p per kWh (night)) and is deducted from your damage deposit. Guests are given the meter key to check readings. More

About the neighborhood
Ruskin Lodge is a short drive away from Dunoon, just south of Loch Eck, and on the edge of Argyll Forest Park. You can start your walks from the backdoor, with the famous Puck's Glen track beginning directly behind the lodges.
Getting around
A car is recommended but there are public transport options too. There are local bus stops at Benmore Botanical Gardens, Uig and Cot House and bus routes link the area to Dunoon, west to Portavadie, south to Ardentinny and north to Strachur, Loch Fyne and Inveraray. There is a car ferry route from Hunters Quay to McInroy Point and a passenger ferry from Dunoon to Gourock.
