Amazing peaceful haven

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Hunters Lodge last week. The lodge is fantastic and has everything needed for a full week's stay. The bed is really comfortable and when you open the blinds in the morning you can sit in bed with a cuppa and watch the fishing boats go past. The HD SMART TV and Now TV was a brilliant addition. We were able to watch a different movie every evening. The sofa's are not comfortable and needed daily "sorting", however we managed. The BOSE wireless speaker is a nice touch and we blue toothed music from our phone. The photographs do not do the lodge justice as it is large and has a separate dining room and table for 6. We had dinner at several differnt hotels and pubs in Glencoe. The best was Glencoe Gathering for fish and chips - the best we have ever eaten. The Loch Leven Hotel has an open fire and an extensive gin collection and the food was good. Special mention to the Clachaig Inn which was yummy. The Holly Tree Hotel was ok and we walked there and had a light lunch. The Ballachulish Hotel was fully booked the entire week so we only had a drink in the bar. We skied at Glencoe for half a day, however the snow was poor but the mountain restaurant was well worth the visit. We managed half a days skiing at the Nevis Range but the mountain was closed due to high winds. Nevis Sport in Fort William does a lovely cake and cuppa after a cold days skiing. We did several local walks in the area using Highland Walks. We cannot wait to return next year. The absolute quiet, privacy, scenery and facilities offered are the best we have had while holidaying in the UK. Much thanks and see you next year.

Fabulous Holiday Home

5 of 5
Like all the previous reviews of this property, we can not fault Kinloch Lodge. We felt at home the minute we walked through the front door and were very sad to leave. Great location for days out and sporting activities. Lovely bars and restaurants in the area too. We will definitely be planning a return trip.
