Fabulous lodge in a fantastic location! We wanted accommodation that was high quality and somewhere we could relax after a busy time in our lives. Platinum 2 did not disappoint. Our original plan was to visit some of the well known tourist places that were within a short drive, but once settled, we decided that we were happy just staying at the lodRead morege, and taking our dog for walks along the rugged coastline. The weather was not the best, but that did not prevent us having a fabulous stay. Hide
