We arrived on the Saturday 3rd July and was welcomed by a welcome basket of local produce, milk, a cake and some lovely flowers; which was lovely. The apartment itself was immaculate and in a great central location for the loch and the town centre. The hot tub was amazing, and completely private in the private back court area. This is a great placeRead more to stay and happy to recommend. We also brought our small dog who loved sitting in the balcony overlooking the park below. Highly recommend. Hide

Lovely lodge, great location for going out and about. Restaurants nearby for evenings out. The lodge had everything we needed, the hot tub was a bonus.
