“Excellent weekend away!!”

Have literally just returned from a weekend away with friends to Gilnockie. Was a fantastic weekend!! The lodge was fabulous!! The photos on this website do not do the lodge justice. You don't get to see the fantastic views, the exceptionally spacious lodge, the bedroom with the balcony with spotlights, the massive shower with lights and in built radio. The lodge was very well equipped, was clean, excellent location, modern and perfect for 6 adults of a variety of ages. Room to park 4 cars as well. The lodge actually looks like a Swiss chalet high up in the mountains. Very quiet surroundings and other gorgeous lodges nearby without being intrusive. We will definitely be returning to this lodge and would highly recommend it. The owner was lovely and very easy to book with. Had a brilliant weekend!!

“Great Location”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed here in June 2013, the lodge itself is situated in a great location for exploring the local area that Dumfries and Galloway have to offer.

The lodge itself has three good sized bedrooms and two good sized bathrooms, the kitchen has everything that you need, the only faults we could find was that this is not a cheap rental so you expect top quality and one first arrival you notice that the cleaning is a little hap hazard with numerous cob webs and dirt underneath furniture and pockets of dust. Then you also notice the numerous bulbs that are out in the lighting around the property.

It appears to lack attention to detail on cleanliness and maintenance. Which is unchanged shame as it good be great.

There are plenty of great places to eat locally and plenty to do and when the sun shines the area is great for kids.

We love he area having been coming here for over twenty years but will probably try somewhere else to stay.

“Absolutely Stunning Property & Location”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We spent a week here October/November 2012. The property is fantastic, really spacious and well equipped. The underfloor heating was on for our arrival so the whole house felt warm and welcoming. The outlook is gorgeous, lots of lovely colours on the trees and a view to the estuary. The photo's do not do it justice, and we are looking forward to booking again in the near future.
