    “The area was just as lovely and peaceful as advertised and we visited many places making lovely memories.”

    The lodge externally was a bit tired, internally was roomy enough for my 2 adult sons and myself and lovely and warm, initially on arrival Saturday seemed fine, however next day drawing the curtains we noticed many of the plastic curtain hooks were broken or missing. The broadband didn’t work and the tv could only play dvds. I rang the owner Sunday who said her daughter had been recently and had mentioned the broadband problem, and would ‘email’ the management company (last I heard) we later worked out the plug was the fault once replaced the broadband then worked 60-70% of the time which was fine probably due to the gorgeous mountains. (Owner needs to buy a new plug) We couldn’t work out why the tv didn’t work maybe an aerial issue. But in order to watch terrestrial tv had to buy a ‘fire stick’ But no amount of money could sort the most uncomfortable beds we’ve ever come across, (I decided no point contacting the owner since nothing was done about the broadband) ultimately by adding quilts on top of the mattress and thin topper, (my sons did the same on their beds) made it a little more bearable , thankfully I’d brought Christmas fleece throws intended as decorative, but used those instead of quilts, I tried the double bed each night but always woke in pain so forced to try to sleep on the small sofa. (The large dead fly I found between the electric blanket and mattress was an interesting touch) ultimately had the lodge not been set in a such a stunning area and the fact we had looked forward to visiting Scotland for a year since booking, we would probably have returned home early. The kitchen was very well equipped and everything worked as it should, with a lovely large solid table with seating for 6, sadly the chairs were rickety, one had come apart but we used another so no issue for us. With respect I feel this lodge could be stunning, and we all agree with the issues above addressed we would visit again.
