Glengoulandie Lodges - On The Waterfront
"Three Award Winnng Lodges"
About Russell Gillespie
My family and I fell in love with these Lodges when we first came to stay here in May 2014. Little did we know that such a holiday would turn into such a wonderful life changing experience - that we would end up taking over this established business from the previous owners and continue in their footsteps, all in under a year! As a family we have always loved the idea of getting away to an idyllic retreat by a lake in the mountains, and we found it here. Living locally to our three Lodges, we offer a very personal service to our Guests and are on hand should you require any assistance during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you to our Lodges, and hope you enjoy the experience just as much as we do! "Glengoulandie Lodges On The Waterfront"

Lake side bliss
Absolutely wonderful place to stay... lake side, ducks and geese to feed, remote, herd of red deer, and a brand new three bedroom cottage. Best of all the places we stayed in Scotland.
Thank you very much for this great review. Our 3 Lodges are in fact over 10 years old and we are delighted it felt and looked brand new.
We take our Lodge maintenance very seriously and we are pleased it shows :-)
We look forward to welcoming you all back one day across the pond from the USA.

Fabulous holiday lodge
Lovely, well equipped and very clean lodge with mountain views and calm waterfront balcony. Stayed as a family of 6, plenty of room and nice to have all bedrooms with en-suites. Location is quiet but plenty of places near enough worth a day's visit. We had some amazing warm weather at the start of our trip and the kids particularly enjoyed swimming at the Loch Morlich beach and rafting down the river from Aberfeldy. Would recommend.
We are delighted to receive your five star review on ‘Home Away’ thank you very much.
It is a pleasure to hear that you had such a wonderful time at our Lodge here at Glengoulandie.

What a wonderful lodge
From your first step into this lodge we felt like being home. The lodge itself, bathrooms, bedrooms, even the all the kitchen equipment, simply everything is absolutely spotless. The location is perfect for families who enjoy the outdoors or want to explore the Scottish highlands. Every day we had wonderful walks and were looking forward to return to the lodge for some relaxation. The location is extremely quiet and we were able to watch wildlife (swans, geese, ducks, other birds, and deer) from the living room window.
Thank you so much for this wonderful week at your lodge. This has been one of our most relaxing and memorable holidays. As a family we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Hello Guenther and family,
Thank you all for such super comments in this great 5* review. We will always remember the delight in your faces when you first arrived and stepped into the Lodge. We look forward to seeing you all again one day.

Eagle Lodge is a lovingly put together home from home with all modern conveniences. A great base to travel around Tummel, Rannoch and Tay. The daily life of birds on the Lochan is captivating and is an avian soap opera in so many ways. Russell and Sandi are wonderful hosts. We have been before and will return again.
Hi Stuart & Juliet,
It was a great pleasure to have you both stay with us once again. You had a super opportunity to see the young Cygnets and other new life here on the Lochan during your stay. Thank you very much for your 5* Review and we look forward to seeing you next year if not before.
