Two different lodges 1 in seclusion with this one in Killin. The lodge was done to the most high of standard with touches that made the stay perfect. From the robes for the hot tub to the underfloor heating to warm up your toes on a wintery February morning. The cottages are tastefully decorated to make you feel its a home from home. With a personal welcoming post card from Nina and a gorgeous candle on arrival made returning feel special. Would highly recommend the lodges as well as Nina,who makes booking extremely easy.

Good place to deactivate from a busy lifestyle and take some time to relax. It has lovely views en route. The cabin has complete amenities too!
