The lodge itself was everything you could want, it was a home away from home with amazing views. It was very clean, everything that you could need was provided and it was nice and warm on arrival! Make sure youre prepared as the closest shop is about 20 minutes away and the best area we found to be busy that was close-ish was Dalbeattie for a pub.
