                                      Fantastic!

                                      We have stayed for a week in the Rainbow Lodge. It is absolutely the most luxurious lodge we have ever stayed in. Everything is exactly as described on the website, the only thing which is not described is the wonderful feel you get when you arrive after a long drive and then open the front door. You're just amazed by the view and the welcome presents which make you feel at home and very welcome. Sandy and Russel are very good hosts and easy to approach, in short, this was a fantastic holiday for us and we will definitely recommend it in the Netherlands

                                      We enjoyed our stay at The Lodge - wonderful to have such lovely woods on the door-step. Would love to return and explore some more.

                                      A beautifully furnished and clean and well equipped lodge in a lovely area of Scotland. Has all the amenities needed and more. The position is ideal for getting around and seeing some spectacular parts of the Highlands. Several good eateries nearby - try The Logierait Inn and if you go that way, The Ben More Lodge at Crianlarich.
