About Mrs Shelagh Richards

Hi, we're Bob , Shelagh and Ernie the border Terrier. We live in Scotland and love using Pucks Lodge to escape

Mrs Shelagh Richards purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Mrs Shelagh Richards chose Argyll and Bute

We fell in love with this peaceful area of Scotland and bought our holiday home in 2009. We had such fun using it that we decided to share it and allow other people to enjoy the beautiful area.

What makes this cabin unique

Being dog owners , we were always looking for pet friendly properties that allowed us to enjoy beautiful scenery. We fell in love with the area around Pucks Glen , it has a magical feel and Ernie the border terrier just loves exploring the woodland.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely lodge. Of course we walked the Pucks Glen walk, we spent a whole day in Benmore Gardens and we visited Dunoon. We loved the blooming rhododendrons in the woods. One day we saw a little deer on the terrain of the lodges. We just said to each other, we have not seen deer here and there he was!

Thank you for staying in your lodge.

Very nice and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

We spent three days relaxing at this property. The last day a couple of deer walked through in the late afternoon. It was clean and well supplied and closely accessible to hikes. And they had free tea cakes!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Great little cabin. Decorated very cute and had everything you needed to have a wonderful stay. The only down side was it was a 1.5 hour drive to Glasgow and you had to drive a lot to go see things, but it was bearable for how nice the cabin was. It was also really relaxing being out in the country.

Owner's Response: Hi Brizet, thank you for your review and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay at the lodge. You’re right the lodge is in the country with plenty of walks directly from the lodge , but if you’d like some city life in Glasgow it is about 1.5 hours drive , alternatively you can get a bus from dunoon and a train from Gourock to save you driving and parking. I guess it depends on what you’d prefer to do but we’re glad you had a good time!

Great lodge in an amazing spot! From first booking Shelagh and Bob were so helpful. The lodge was spotless and there was absolutely everything you need and more- fresh milk and welcome ‘teacakes’. Enclosed decking area so the dogs were safe. Directly behind the lodge was Pucks Glen- the most magical forest with amazing waterfalls. We also visited Benmore botanical gardens- also fabulous.

Myself, my family and my dogs had a great time at Pucks lodge- highly recommend it. Would definitely go for a return visit 😊

Whenever guests bring their dogs to stay , they always enjoy Pucks Glen, there are so many nice walks to do in the area, so make sure you come back and explore the area again! Best wishes Bob and Shelagh

Owner's Response: We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Pucks Lodge. It is as described a traditional log cabin, and unfortunately the timing of your visit coincided with ‘The Beast from the East’ and probably some of the coldest temperatures we have experienced in years. The electricity usuage would be higher than normal , but we run an honesty box system, there is an allowance in the cost of the holiday and we simply ask visitors to pay for any extra electric they use above this allowance (this is charged at the electric suppliers rate ) . We use this system rather than charge more for the holiday as we feel it is fairer for people to pay for what they use rather than charge everyone more. We hope this didn’t spoil your enjoyment of the area, which beautiful in all weathers.

Great place

Located right on pucks Glen so super walks. Cosy Lodge, fully equipped. The children enjoyed the ferry to Dunoon. Its a shame we left the dog at home.
