  • "Had a fantastic stay it was home from home."

    The walks are fab and the location is ideal for that peaceful get away. The lodge was immaculate and the welcome pack for us and the dog were lovely. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back.

  • "A very comfortable, well maintained, well equipped, holiday home, with a stunning view."

    The only local shop has everything you might need, and the local golf club warmly welcomes visitors, serving food and drink in a very pretty setting. We found the location well positioned to access many places of interest within the Loch Lomand national park.

  • "The property and furnishings are superb and Iona's attention to detail in welcoming new arrivals was outstanding, with artisan and locally sourced goodies awaiting upon our arrival and even goodies for our dogs."

    The lodge was immaculate and cosy, with absolutely stunning views. I could not fault the lodge, its spec, the location, the exceedingly thoughtful gestures provided by the owners and the helpful information provided by the owners. Only recommendations I could suggest is purely for guests who would book longer next time (like me), would be: a dog gate, just to ensure the dogs are secure and fellow site users have their space respected too. A wellie and umbrella port outside (purely to keep the already beautiful lodge as dry and clean as possible, with a little more ease). A washing machine/dryer would be a nice to have, particularly if booking in autumn/winter seasons (which we plan to do), and a hot tub would be the cherry on top of an already awesome cake! This location was probably the best location I've booked so far that has ideal dog walking spots, where you're not having to worry about infringing on someone's land or bothering sheep and cattle. Its postion in the central belt of Scotland was ideal for venturing the castles, lochs, palaces, villages, cities and towns and the local watersports was a huge hit with the kids! If you like wildlife practicallyon your doorstep, be it red squirrels, birds of prey or roaming deer, this is nirvana! Site staff are lovely and very helpful too. I will be returning to Hollybirch, which I feel is the most sincere recommendation a guest can give. Huge thank you to Iona and Philip for making our stay absolute bliss!

  • "We had a wonderful time at the lodge."

    It was very well equipped and the views were outstanding. One very small thing that would have been handy is a gate or barrier on the deck / walkway ramp for our dog - not a huge problem though. We will absolutely recommend Holybirch to friends and family and we will try to return soon. Thank you again.

  • "The listing of the property was generally accurate, however, we feel that it should have been mentioned that the site as a whole was still under construction."

    The views from the rear decking of the lodge were outstanding in fine weather but that was offset when leaving the property of an unfinished lodge, unconnected pipework and building supplies strewn around the place. The initial drive into the site when full of excitement for a week ahead and then to be met by a rusty dumper truck, metal fencing and an unfinished building site were quite a shock. This was not what we were expecting and having stayed in previous Sykes locations we would expect better. In summary, the property was good but the site itself is in need of some improvement.

  • "The lodge was beautiful with fantastic views over the hills from the decking area at the front of the lodge."

    The site was very quiet and peaceful with easy access to the traffic free walking into St Fillans. The lodge was spotlessly clean with all the cooking utensils you could need. The host also provided a welcome pack with produce from the local area which was really nice. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

  • "The lodge is extremely well equipped with everything you could want for a very enjoyable vacation."

    The views from the patio are amazing. Our dog had the best time too . The bed and pillows were the comfiest ever and we slept like logs . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hollybirch lodge to everyone and can’t wait to return

  • "We had a wonderful week staying in Hollybirch."

    The views are superb no matter the weather. The lodge is comfortable, very clean and has all the facilities and quality equipment needed, in fact the best we have had. The village is welcoming. Especially Liam at the Village shop. Comrie is only 10 minutes drive and has a very good craft butcher and deli. As mentioned in previous reviews the site is not quite finished but nearly there and the small amount of noise in the day didn’t detract from our enjoyment.

  • "A very comfortable lodge with wonderful mountain views and everything you need in the kitchen."

    The owner was lovely and very helpful when we asked for advice. As mentioned in a previous review the site is still under development but there was no building work while we were there and you don't even see the site when you are in the lodge. It is a small quiet site, which was perfect for us. Very peaceful. Many great walks in the area, and very central location for visiting other areas. We really enjoyed staying here.
