I stayed for a weekend with a group of 10 guys in one of the lodges (something North) and it was fantasic. The lodge was a great size and the single beds made it ideal for a same sex group. Wifi was in place which helped to keep an eye on the Ryder cup as dos sky sports in the... More

Blessed with a lovely day on Easter Sunday, we decided to head out to Forbes of Kingennie for a high tea. The staff are extremely helpful and pleasant, food was plentiful and tasty and reasonably priced. Cakes , scones nice too. The setting is very pretty, nice for a wee walk after tea around the loch.

Me and my husband stayed at the beautiful, cosy and quirky boathouse on an Itison deal on 27/28th February. Find it difficult to fault as it is just lovely.
