About Philip & Janine Murray

We are a family who live in Aberdeen and rented Firbush lodge from the previous owners and immediately fell in love with the surroundings and all you can do in this area. We have been down numerous times over the last 8 years and never get fed up of returning, just wish we could do it more. The Murrays Aberdeen

Philip & Janine Murray purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Philip & Janine Murray chose Perth and Kinross

We loved the location, the fantastic views, the peace and tranquility - and when the children were small we loved the fact that we could just open the door and let them out to play on their own while still being able to keep an eye on them. Now they are bigger and interested in water sports and cycling the lodge is still ideally situated.

What makes this chalet unique

At Firbush you can watch an ever changing but always beautiful landscape from a breathtaking summer sunrise, an amazing mist covered autumn loch to a stunning winter snow scene from the comfort of the balcony. With or without children, for a few nights or for a longer stay, it is the perfect location and base to discover everything Perthshire has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had the most perfect summer holiday. Weather was amazing. Lodge was so homely and welcoming with amazing views. Got up really early some mornings just to sit and watch the sun rise. Kids were outside from morning til night, swimming in the loch, playing on the field and walking in the woods. Lots of lovely barbeques on the little beaches that can only be reached by boat. Boat trips and canoes were great fun. No-one wants to leave. Can't wait to come back.

Delightful cabin on a magnificent loch

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Janine and Phil’s cabin. Whilst the bedrooms aren’t big they are extremely comfortable. The living space is fabulous! It’s spacious, cozy, delightfully decorated and has the most amazing outlook! Phil and Janine have thought of everything - ample kitchen supplies, lots of games, DVDs, travel info, cozy blankets. It was really clean and we loved the ducks and birds. The complex is lovely with lots of green space and not at all over crowded. The loch is just superb and boats can be rented easily from just near the cabin front door! It’s excellently located to explore the Trossachs. We loved Glen Lyon so much! Phil and Janine were the most friendly and responsive hosts I’ve ever experienced...5 stars to them!

Fantastic place and location. Beautiful views and very peaceful. Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend Firbush Lodge on Loch Tay. Views are amazing. Very clean and comfortable. Great location. Climbed Ben Lawers mountain (in the snow) which is only a few minutes drive away from the lodge. Dogs loved it too! Hope to come back again one day.

Thank you very much.

Relaxing, beautiful and centric

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the lodge for a week with my wife and 3 kids.

The kids were able to go out and about by themselves and really enjoyed just being able to explore around the area.

The views are absolutely amazing and we didn't want to leave. The kids kept on asking if we could stay there forever.

The lodge is very comfortable, fully equipped, spacious and has a very relaxing feel to it.

You can plan activities at the lodge, stay and relax or can also go on day trips to the sorounding areas. We went to Fort Williams, Stirling Castle, Horse Riding and many other things.

Wonderful place to stay in beautiful surrounding

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and tidy, equipped with everything we needed and more and really decorated with love. It's close to the waterfront, so you have a stunning view over Loch Tay. There are ducks and birds to feed (a joy not only for kids), there are plenty of possibilities to get sporty, and the whole site is very family-friendly. And on top, the owners are really friendly and helpful - thank you so much!
