About Mrs Shelagh Richards

Hi, we're Bob , Shelagh and Ernie the border Terrier. We live in Scotland and love using Pucks Lodge to escape

Mrs Shelagh Richards purchased this lodge in 2009

Why Mrs Shelagh Richards chose Isle of Bute & Cowal Peninsula

We fell in love with this peaceful area of Scotland and bought our holiday home in 2009. We had such fun using it that we decided to share it and allow other people to enjoy the beautiful area.

What makes this lodge unique

Being dog owners , we were always looking for pet friendly properties that allowed us to enjoy beautiful scenery. We fell in love with the area around Pucks Glen , it has a magical feel and Ernie the border terrier just loves exploring the woodland.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely lodge. Of course we walked the Pucks Glen walk, we spent a whole day in Benmore Gardens and we visited Dunoon. We loved the blooming rhododendrons in the woods. One day we saw a little deer on the terrain of the lodges. We just said to each other, we have not seen deer here and there he was!



Thank you for staying in your lodge.

'Christmas Winter Wonderland'

'Christmas Winter Wonderland'
  • 5 out of 5
This was our first Christmas Holiday away from home. As we pulled into the site the view took your breath away, even though it was dark when we arrived - the snow just made everything bright. While my husband unloaded the van I took Tam (our dog) for a walk along Pucks Lane it was fantastic the trees all looked like Christmas trees. It was a little chilly when we arrived at the lodge, it was -10 outside. The cabin was even better than we expected from the brochure. The owners I feel, have thought of everything that you may need for your holiday. There were even extra blankets placed around the cabin. The directions provided were spot on, just as well as we arrived much later than expected in the dark. We visited the gardens which were only a very short walk from the cabin. We didn't walk round them as everything was covered in snow, but we did try the cafe which served very nice home cooked food. There is also a very nice old Inn just 2.5 miles from the site, easy walking distance in good weather. My husband went on some fantastic walks with our dog Tam, as usual he bought an OS map of the area we were staying so he could get the most out of his walks. I have already recommended Pucks Lodge to friends and family and would like to visit it at a different time of year. We had a very nice relaxing stay in the cabin, just what we needed to recharge our batteries for the new year ahead. I have a photograph of the outside of the cabin and trees covered in snow as my screen saver, it makes me feel good every time I see it and reminds me of a really good holiday.
