Beautiful Cottage
Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Has everything you need and more. Lots of things to do in the area. Well looked after by Willa, many thanks for the sugar and the flapjack. This was our third visit to South Lodge and will not be our last.

Lovely Peaceful Location
The cottage is well equipped and situated near the loch. It's a great place for fishing or exploring. The log fire is lovely on slightly colder weather with an endless supply of logs. And you dog is made very welcome.

Superb pet friendly accommodation in a wonderful location
This was one of those holidays that you will remember for a long time. This part of Scotland is lovely at this time of year. South Lodge and the wider Ederline Estates was excellent. South Lodge was a cosy, self contained property with plenty of character. Well equipped and in great condition. The Estate has some great places to explore from the Boat House next to the loch on top of the mountain and the lost chapel. Angus and his team were perfect hosts. Would love to return.

Wonderful peace and tranquility
South lodge is a beautifully equipped and perfectly situated cottage for exploring the wonderful sights and sounds, (or perhaps peace and quiet), of Argyll and Bute. Willa and Angus could not have been more helpful regarding the best of what their estate and the surrounding coastline had to offer. It would not matter a jot what time of year you visited the Ederline estate, the comforts of South Lodge would make you feel at home as soon as you walked through the door. We are recommending the cottage to anyone and everyone!

Pure Relaxation
My husband and I were hoping for a relaxing break and South Lodge, located on the shores of Loch Ederline, was absolutely perfect. South Lodge was spacious, beautifully situated, warm and comfortable with a huge bed to drift off in to nothing but the sounds of nature. We walked, cycled and my husband ran. Loch Ederline is small, peaceful and out of the way but within easy driving distance of places of interest. Willa and her partner made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and the cost of a week in South Lodge was great value for money. The weather was also superb at the time of year we visited (May) and no midges at all to spoil things. When time and finances permit, we would love to return.

Peaceful Calm in an Idyllic Setting
Spent a wonderful week in South Lodge, Willa and Angus could not have made us feel more welcome. Even spent a morning out on the hills helping Angus bringing the sheep back from their 'Hefts' Cottage was clean, tidy spacious and had all the necessary items needed for a weekly stay. I highly recommend South Lodge.

Delightful cottage with local walks and historical sites to visit.
Excellent accommodation. Comfy bed. Spacious and well equipped. WIFI! excellent. A lot of care in making the environment easy for local walking and exploring places of interest. The décor is well thought out and homely. Very quiet and out of the way. Easy parking outside. Altogether a very nice place to spend a week's holiday.

Fantastic Cottage
Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Perfect for two. Red squirrels on the bird table while having breakfast was a highlight. Angus and Willa gave us great tips where to visit, a really nice thoughtful couple. Walks on the estate are to die for. Crinan canal, Loch Fyne Restaurant, EE-usk Restaurant (Oban), Sea Life Adventure Boat Trip (Clachan-Seil near Oban) are just a few great things to do in the area. Can't praise more highly. Will return in the future for certain...
