                                                            We staid at Glengoulandie Lodges for 5 days and we really enjoyed it. The view from Rainbow Lodge on the water and the surrounding mountains is great. The lodge is also a good starting point to visit Aberfeldy or other villages in the neighborhood. The lodge is really comfortable and offers all the equipment you require. We can surely recommend this lodge as we had a relaxing 5 days.

                                                            Wonderful start to 2016

                                                            We spent New Year week at The Retreat and it was the perfect relaxing and peaceful start to the year. From the moment we arrived to the table set for tea with home baking, the real Christmas tree and a very warm welcome from the owner, Lisa, we knew we were in for a great break. The cottage is as lovely as it looks in the photos, with everything very clean and well maintained. The location lets you feel totally away from it all, but with the convenience of shops and restaurants only a short drive away. We have already booked to return to this fabulous cottage!
