The quality of food has certainly improved since our last visit just over a year ago. Service was excellent, our waiter/waitresses...

Met a friend for dinner and enjoyed a lovely meal sitting watching the fishermen on the Loch. The service was good, the food was tasty and there was a nice choice on the menu at a reasonable price. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Just back from a long weekend at the lodges. The scenery and view of the lake was lovely. However the lodge itself can do with a good update. The decor was ok but the furnishings were dated. The whole lodge could be doing with a spring clean, dropped something on the floor and moved the couch to retrieve it beneath...

Hi Karen, Thank you for your review. I appreciate your feedback on the lodge, some of our older, smaller lodges are more classically decorated, I would recommend that if you do make a return visit you try out our Waterside lodges which are more spacious with modern furnishings.
