Stunning home

5 of 5
Hobart House is absolutely beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice! The manse has been finished to an exceptionally high standard, and the fittings and furnishings are very luxurious. We were extremely comfortable during our stay, and we really enjoyed having the hot tub to use and then coming in to the warmth of a real wood burning stove. I would highly recommend staying here for a weekend away with friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Fabulous stay at Rainbow lodge

5 of 5
The lodge was large, comfortable and scrupulously clean on arrival and Russell and Sandy had left some welcome gifts for us (beautiful cake, wine and basic supplies)The setting is just wonderful, right on the edge of the lochan. The nesting swans, geese and ducks provided great entertainment :) Centrally located for many sights and activities. Can highly recommend this holiday lodge.
