“5 Star accommodation with 5 star scenery”
Reviewed February 12, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed for a long weekend with our 2 children ; ages 7 & 10.
The house was absolutely amazing with all the home comforts you could ask fior. The hot tub and sauna were certainly a hit !! We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub looking at out the amazing scenery all around us . We also had a visit from 5 deer to the field on our last morning and what a lovely sight that was :-)
We are already planning when our next visit to Locholly lodge will be as it was certainly worth the 6 hour drive from Glasgow to get there.

“Stac Polly - Amazing”
Reviewed January 11, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights and we were stunned when we first arrived, the house and the views were beautiful. Sadly, the weather wasn't the best but what can you really expect in Scotland? So we couldn't do much walking but there was plenty of routes and munroes on offer. But that didn't stop us from having a great holiday - would recommend paying the extra for the hot-tub as nothing quite beats sitting in it when it is cold outside. The facilities were great, they were over and above our initial expectations, you can clearly see the house has been made to a high standard. The sauna was brilliant as it isn't such a dry heat as a normal one, will definitely be looking to use the infrared ones in the future.! In addition, the instructional videos and guest information folders were very handy not just for the house but for the local area. Although, the information leaflet for the smokehouse needs to be removed as we found out it no longer exists.

We will definitely be booking again in the future for another relaxing and peaceful holiday!!

“Magical stay”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Just stayed this past week at Locholly Lodge over the Christmas period. We had a magical time. The location is fantastic with spectacular views over the Summer Isles. The house itself is stunning - couldn't ask for any more. Would highly recommend to anyone.

“Locholly fortnight wasn't long enough”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This place is just magical. Wonderful location, light and views with all mod cons in a little designer chic. Wished we'd booked for longer as both cycling and walking were excellent in the local area.

“Great house stunning location”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A well designed house with everything you could need for a fantastic holiday. Furnishing and equipment were of a high standard. Problems with high tech sound and TV system but great help and assistance from John and Mia(caretakers) hot tub was the icing on the cake !
I highly recommend this property and location whether you are looking to relax or explore the stunning scenery.

“Luxury at its best with breathtaking views”

We travelled from Aberdeenshire to Achiltibuie for a weeks break with friends. We had done a lot of research in order to find accomodation that would take our beloved dogs (4) as well as being of a high standard but the only property that met our expectations was Locholly/Stacpolly Lodge and we were certainly not disappointed !! The house was extremely well kitted out surround sound system, with everything you could think of in the kitchen with plenty cutlery, dishes and cooking utensils which is very important when our friend is a fantastic cook !! The journey only took 3hrs 40 mins with a pit stop in Inverness Tesco's to get provsions en route. So glad we did as there is a wee shop there (Achiltibuie Stores) but has limited stock and can be expensive so a supermarket shop is definitely a good idea. The scenery and beaches are stunning and the walks with the dogs were plentiful and to end up in the hot tub at the end of the day with your favourite tipple is pure bliss however please be mindful of the Midges if the weather is warm !! We have already enquired about going back next year and we've only been home for 7 days !!
