The standard of the lodge is excellent, from the furnishings, equipment and it has everything you need for a relaxing week. The setting is outstanding, views are breathtaking, and the welcome from Fiona and Robin is brilliant, and they are very helpful - we cannot fault it, and would return again.

This is a very special location tucked away in the gentle and beautiful hills of Dumfries and Galloway. The lodge is modern, stylish with front seat views onto the Loch where so much is happening. It is on a working farm and we all loved learning about the running of it from Robin and Fiona, who were fabulous hosts. We will definitely be returning.

We had the best week ever at Auchencairn. There is so much to do close by, nice walks, amazing beaches and watersports. Not forgetting being able to wander about a working farm. The lodge is 5 star and has everything you need. The hot tub overlooks the loch and it was perfect as the sun came down. Robin and Fiona are amazing people and made us feelRead more so at home. They even helped me over come my fear of some animals. Thanks for a truly amazing week, I cant wait to return. Hide
