Great for a family party
Exceeded expectations! Plenty of room and great facilities.
Perfect for a large group get-together
Everything we needed, in a great location. Helpful information from owners and the support on the ground, John and Linda, were great. Really friendly and helpful - we felt it genuinely mattered to them that we had the best time possible.
Incredible value, even better view!
We had 45 in our party, roughly 1/3 stayed at the Morenish Hunting Lodge, and they were thrilled. It's a warm, rustic house with lots of amenities, and for the price, this really is a no-brainer.
Was exactly as expected. Perfect for our friendly gathering!
Perfect house for our family reunion. Ample space for us all, very well equipped, clean and homely. This was our 2nd stay at Morenish and we hope to return again!
Family Get Together
So this will have been our second time at Morenish House, having had a cracking visit their in 2013.
There was me, the wife, the two weans, there two besty's, my big Sis, her man, her grandson, my wee sis, her 2 weans, my wee Bro and Fergie. Oh aye and Chester the dug. In a nutshell we had a ball. It is great to get the gether, particularly so when there isnae any faw oots (well none I seen).
So we are there in the winter, it can be cold and wet in Scotland, but here there should be no such thing as bad weather, just bad choices in clothing. Wee Sis ran every day with Chester. Big Sis and her man 'P' took a daily drive to see the sights in what is a beautiful part of Scotland. In fact we all got out at some point. Last time we were there we visited the distillery at Crieff about 45 minutes away, well worth it, had hoped to visit the one at Aberfeldy 30 mins away but alas, not enough whisky drinkers this time, it'll keep.
Minutes up the road is Ben Lawyers one of Scotlands famous Munro's, we seen it.
We travelled farther still, because of an error I made in scheduling me and my kin, 6 of us, had to travel to Edinburgh for a cracking performance of Les Miserables. It was 90 minutes of a beautiful scenic drive there and a dark adventurous one back, but it was well worth it. Allowing time we spent a good part of the day in Scotlands Capital.
Killin itself is a mere jaunt away, although I personally wouldnae like to walk it, but it has plenty hostelry's. (a good touch by the owner was giving reviews, granted not quite up to date, in the house information folder of what is on offer near by, just in case your stuck like)
The house itself is Shuuugge!, like really big and there was loads of room for us to share and have our own space. The games rooms were plenty big enough, with good quality games tables.
The bedrooms were just dandy and there were enuff showers (baths if you want) for us all, just not at the same time.
But the bestest has to be the living/kitchen/dining area. This is where much of our time was spent. Cooking hearty meals on the AGA, sharing them at the dining table and sitting around the log burner. This was made for the family or close friends, we just made the absolute most of it.
A wee advantage, if u need to send someone to 'Coventry' (u fell oot) then there is a wee dream of a flatlike living area far away in the hoose.
There are flaws, we just didn't take notice
Will we be back, all being well, that's a big AYE
