"From the moment I arrived at the lodge, it felt like home."
Donna the owner called shortly after my arrival, just to check everything was ok, and to give helpful advice on days out etc. The cottage was spotless and homely, and a lovely hamper with goodies for both myself and Ted my cocker spaniel companion was set out for us both, which was really thoughtful. We crammed in a lot of days out to various places such as Balmoral, Dunkeld, a visit to lunan bay beach on the east side of Scotland, which was beautiful. And the views from the living room as you relax are stunning, especially as the sun is rising in the distance in the morning, and then again at sunset. The garden is very secure for your four legged friend, and the hot tub is an added bonus. Everything you could want for is in the cottage, making it a fabulous place to call it home for the week. Definitely on my radar to return back to sportsman's lodge some time in the future.
Hi Barry, Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was great to meet you, I hope to welcome you back sometime soon. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"Perfect cottage for those wanting to get away from it all."
Facilities & cleanliness 1st class with excellent Wi-Fi for those wanting to stay in touch. Great local dog walking within a short drive & the Cairngorms can be reached within half an hour for the more adventurous. Would recommend this cottage for anyone considering a stay in this part of Scotland.

Hi Suzanne, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sportsman's Lodge in the future. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"Sportsmans Lodge is a lovely property to stay in, great that it is all on one level and a very easy layout to boot."
A very comfy bed in the master bedroom and all the facilities you might need for day to day living whilst you are away. Great views from the lounge and some amazing sunsets were seen, as well as some inverted clouds which made for some quite spectacular scenery. The hot tub is a treat, great that it is covered and a great way to see the wonderful dark skies, so take a camera if this is what you are looking for. The owner has thought over everything you need for a comfortable stay. We would thoroughly recommend this property and location.

"Amazing week at Sportsman Lodge, we had a lovely welcome from Donna and a welcome pack which went down well, thank you."
The cottage had everything we required. A lovely garden to sit in to enjoy the sun the hot tub was amazing. The cottage is a great base to travel to so many beauty spots, Reekie Linn waterfall and Backwater dam. The only negative is the week went by too quickly, I would definitely recommend this cottage.
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely feedback. We appreciate it very much. I am so happy you have had a wonderful stay at Sportsman's Lodge :-) Best wishes Donna Property Owner

Hi Louise, Thank you for your feedback. Happy to hear you enjoyed our wee cottage. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"We really enjoyed our stay."
Excellent facilities in the property. A secure fence to keep our dogs safe and good views from all around. Lots to see and do in the area too. Would definitely recommend.
Hi Steve, Thank you for taking the time to leave us lovely feedback. It was great to meet you and we hope to welcome you back sometime. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"Cottage was lovely and there are plenty of lots very walks and beautiful areas to visit but these are not direct from doorstep you do need to drive but worth it once there."
Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave great feedback on our cottage. We hope to be able to welcome you back sometime. Many thanks Donna Property Owner
"This property was absolutely stunning!"
It was perfect! Far enough outside the local town that you could switch off from everything and unwind, but close enough to the shops, fuel etc and activities to have adventures if you choose! Host was lovely, greeted us shortly after arrival and suggested some places to visit during our stay, we went to the beach and waterfall which were both beautiful, and the Wee Bear Cafe which was suggested was delicious! I would highly recommend this to all! For wildlife lovers we saw red kites from the property and a short drive from the lodge we saw osprey and red squirrels and some deer also! Endinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen were 1-1.5 hours away and definitely worth the visit! Being on the edge of the cairngorms there is definitely a large array of places or activities which makes this a perfect destination for anyone to stay! I would also like to mention that the locals were also super helpful, on the last day of our stay I had issues with one of my tyres deflating, after visiting a garage that was fully booked they pointed me in a direction of another garage which sorted my car in under 30 minutes of turning up! Couldn't recommend this property enough!
Hi Emily, Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely feedback. So happy you had a great holiday at Sportsman's Lodge. Glad to hear you managed to get your tyre fixed. Thanks again and hope to welcome you back to the cottage sometime. Best wishes Donna Property Owner
"The cottage was comfortable and well maintained."
The only drawback was its proximity to the road. A B class road it may be but it was busy and, as the property sits on a straight stretch, vehicles went fast and it was noisy. The living room door to the outside opens onto the roadside. Bedrooms were fine as they are to the rear
Hello Alison, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes, our cottage is set on a road, which is shown in the pictures and on the map. We have not had an issue regarding this before and hope it did not disturb your stay. Kind regards Donna Property Owner
"We had a lovely week in this fabulous cottage."
Its a great location with lots of places to visit within the not to far away area. The cottage had everything we needed and our small dog Sparkleslived the secure garden. Donna the owner was a great help when we had an unexpected loss of water, getting Scottish Water on the case and delivering to us some bottled Water for use till it was fixed. We loved the hot tub and the antislip surface on it meant we felt safer getting in and out. The basket of treats was gratefully appreciated too and we would not hesitate to return.
Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you and Sparkles back to Sportsman's sometime soon. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"Sportsman's Lodge is faultless, It's in a beautiful location with great views ."
There's so many places to visit we chose Arbroath for the smokies,,wee bear cafe is a unique place for lunch,,kerriemuir has links to Peter Pan and AC/DC which for a fan was a real bonus ..Rspb loch is 5 mins away too if you want to see some stunning wildlife. Donna made us feel really welcome with a gift pack on arrival and a personal greeting to explain the facilties. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean with everything you will need (plus nespresso coffee to start your day ) The hot tub was a lovely way to relax after a day out and about . We will definitely stay again in the future.
Hi, Thank you for the great feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again. Best regards Donna Property Owner

Home away from home.
Thank you for your fantastic feedback, Laura. We hope to welcome you back sometime. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"In a word - perfect."
The cottage is finished, both internally and externally, to the highest standard. On arrival everything was beautifully presented (thanks Donna) and you couldn’t ask for more. What the photos don’t show is the level of comfort which is outstanding. The sofas in the lounge are perfect for watching a movie on the smart TV (excellent Broadband speed) and the bed is the best I’ve slept on in a rental property. And finally a cottage with blackout blinds in the bedrooms. Perfect for a lie in. The garden is completely secure for your dog and equally safe for children. Cannot recommend this property highly enough. 100% satisfied customer.
Hi Andy, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. So happy you enjoyed your stay, we aim to make it as comfortable for you as possible. Hope to welcome you back sometime Property Owner

"A beautiful property, lovely and warm and very well equipped."
The hot tub was a bonus, we had never used one before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you Donna for the welcome gifts and for your help. A truly peaceful holiday.
Hi Robert, Thank you for your lovely feedback, it is very much appreciated. It was lovely to meet you all. We are so happy you had a peaceful stay at the cottage. We hope to welcome you back someday. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"We must say this was one of the best cottages we have stayed in."
The cottage was of high standard, spotlessly clean and totally safe for our dog Holly. It was great to come back after being out touring to a lovely warm hot tub that you could relax in, which was maintained each morning. The garden was all fenced off and Holly could roam around without any chance of getting out. Scenery was lovely to wake up to each morning when opening the curtains as we had good weather on the week we stayed. I must say the cottage had everything in it you needed and arrived to a basket of goodies and wine in the fridge too. We had a great time at sportsmans Lodge and would certainly return again.
Hi Catherine, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so happy you had a great stay with us. We do try very hard to ensure each and every one of our guests stays is enjoyable. We look forward to the chance to welcome you back. Thank you also for the lovely thank you card and gifts left for us! Best regards Donna Property Owner

"This cottage is beautiful."
So clean and homely with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Tastefully furnished ti a high spec. Lots of walks and amazing scenery. Nearest shop is about 5 miles. The owners make their guests so welcome and are on hand, if needed. We had a very quiet, chilled week, which was just what we wanted. We made great use of the amazing hot tub
Hi Heather, Thank you for your lovely feedback. I am glad you had an enjoyable stay, hope to welcome you back some day. Best regards Donna Property Owner
Spotlessly clean and comfortable. The owner has thought of everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was an added bonus. Can't think of anything else to say as every thing was spot on! We have stayed in many cottages all over the UK and this was definitely one of the best. Thank you Donna, we hope to come back one day.
Thank you for your feedback, very happy you have enjoyed your stay at our wee cottage. Look forward to welcoming you back some day! Property Owner
"This is a lovely cottage in the middle of some beautiful countryside."
The town is within easy reach and there are good walks near by. the cottage is well appointed and the quality of the cottage fittings excellent. The owners information was clear and helpful and the hot tub a great asset. Plenty of secure garden space for our dogs who had a great time. Dundee well worth exploring. Thoroughly recommend the Airlie Arms and Armstrong's. We are already thinking about a return visit next year.
Hi Stephen, Thank you for your lovely review and recommendations for places to eat for other guests. We are happy you have enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Sportsman's Lodge. Best regards Donna Property Owner

The hot tub was lovely even in the cold weather. We do miss watching all the lambs jumping around playing with each other across the road from the cottage. We would happily book again.
Hi Jenny, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We hope to welcome you back to Sportsman's Lodge sometime. Best regards Donna Property Owner
"We had a lovely 7 night stay at Sportsman Lodge."
The facilities were excellent and exceptionally clean. Donna was a great host. The area was lovely and peaceful, great views from the back door. The hot tub was nice to relax in at the end of the day. However, bare in mind that you are only allowed in the hot tub from 10am until 10pm. Other then this time restriction, everything else was perfect for us. We have already recommended Sportsman Lodge to family and friends.
Hi Vishal, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so happy you had a lovely stay. Thanks again for recommending us. All the best Donna Property Owner

"The Sportsman Lodge is a perfect location to travel and explore the Cairngorms and surrounding area."
The Lodge is extremely comfortable and well equipped for a family of four and a dog. The added bonus is a hot tub in the garden that is ideal after a long day out. Donna is an excellent host and her small touches of a welcome hamper and recommendations for the local area are what make the Sportsman Lodge a 1st class place to stay at.
"Just had a fantastic weekend with friends at The Sportsman's Lodge couldn't ask for anything more great location, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and lovely host Donna who made us feel very welcome ."
. we loved the flowers, prosecco and sweets a lovely touch and best of all the hot tub!! Would definitely recommend this Lodge to others for a lovely break away!!!
"We had a lovely time in Scotland and the Sportsman Lodge was very comfortable and having everything you could possibly need."
We met Donna on our first afternoon who was extremely nice and the welcome basket was very much appreciated. We would definitely stay here again if we ever come to this part of Scotland in future.
"This cottage far exceeded our expectations."
Although a small cottage it never felt like we were short of space and it was extremely comfortable with many extras, and the welcome basket was much appreciated. We hope to revisit in 2021.
"Wonderful stay at a wonderful place"
"The property was presented in an immaculate condition with everything needed to make our stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable."
We loved The Sportsman's Lodge and would highly recommend the property to friends and family. The owner, Donna, called by to welcome us to the property and we found her to be very friendly insisting if there was anything we needed to get in touch. If we are ever back in the area we would definitely stay at The Sportsman's Lodge again. Very pleased with our stay.
"The cottage was so well equipped- it was like being at home!"
The personal touches provided such as the hamper with treats and bottle in the fridge were soooo appreciated. Thank you.
