August 5, 2017 by in

We had a lovely family holiday here.  The lodge is in a good central location for visiting all the nearby lochs.

There was a bit of a misunderstanding with the website and therefore we did not bring a high chair, however the owner very kindly went and bought one the following day for us.  The bed is very comfortable (hotel quality) and was very well equipped, it was a shame we didn’t get to sit in the garden because of the weather.

Lots of nice picnic locations nearby, I recommend Balmaha.
