  • "Wow! Blown away with the lodge."

    It is even better than the photos on the website. We have stayed in many properties with Sykes over the years and this comes out at the top of our list. It is everything you could wish for. Comfortable, well equipped, spotlessly clean and in beautiful surroundings. The swans and ducks, even spotted a mandarin duck, on the lake were a delight to watch especially when the ice and snow was on the lake. Its clear why guests return time and again. We would love to stay again. Thank you, Andrew and Elizabeth, for sharing this beautiful place.

    Great lodge in a truly stunning location. Was lovely to see the swans have had their babies since our last stay. There was a bit of issue when we checked that was sorted out very quickly and efficiently between the owner and Sykes. This did not impact in our holiday and booked again for November. Just love staying here. Quiet relaxing location with everything a short drive away.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Burnside Lodge."

    The lodge was really comfortable and the outlook is absolutely stunning. We found everything we needed in the lodge, and being on one level made access easy for a family member with mobility issues. We would definitely like to stay there again and do some more bird watching and to see how the cygnets and Oyster Catcher chicks we saw hatch are growing. The only downside we found was that the beds were not too comfortable being a bit on the hard side. Although located slightly outside Aberfeldy, it's within easy reach of the A9 and we enjoyed some lovely days out surrounded by stunning scenery. The stay was just what we needed.

    The lodge itself was spotlessly clean and was a proper home from home and wanted for absolutely nothing. What made it for me was the deer farm next door. It was lovely being so close to the deer. Also the Lochan was a lovely outlook and great to see all the bird life. Overall a great holiday and will definitely be booking again.

  • "Outstanding holiday lodge in a fantastic location!"

    Great walks all around direct from the lodge . Views of loch with the Swans etc; Owls hooting at night from lodge and wild deer roaming close by made it for us! Never have we stayed in such an immaculately clean holiday let with every conceivable kitchen item required! Now for the owners observation! The beds are really uncomfortable, despite toppers being fitted.We found that the drier on the built in washer dryer did not work so will need attention or replacement! Also side veranda gate needs attention due to screws missing hinge didn’t support it being opened . The week we were there were roadwork restrictions into Aberfeldy so had to head off into Pitlochry for shopping .Around a 40 mile round trip on the hair raising twisty hairpin bends, few passing places where we found very few keeping to a sensible speed in this situation! Would we recommend this lodge? Definitely! Would we stay again? Yes! If the beds were replaced with softer springs and memory foam top.

    Clean modern with every convenience required for a brilliant stay. The owners kept us informed on arrival. The town of Aberfeldy is near for food shopping fuel for our motorbikes and other shops pubs etc. We enjoyed the local walks towards the mountains as well as several motorcycle rides to Tummel Bridge and nearby Lochs etc. The Deer and bird wildlife swan etc. provided hours of entertainment and we were lucky with the weather which is always a bonus in Scotland. Our only suggestion to improve our stay would be maybe to provide a welcome pack of tea coffee shortbread? and to have more comfortable seating on the patio like our neighbors cabin. We both found wooden seats very hard after a short time which spoilt the experience of sitting outside for a drink in the evening. But this does not spoil anything overall and we would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a 5 star holiday

    ..its like mine at home ...if it has no power, the levers won't stay down. Our dog loved the deck, yes there is a slight dip, nothing that building it up from underneath wouldn't fix which is what should have been done before hammering the nail in....job done. Beds were super comfy, had a great sleep every night. Underfloor heating was fab. Could have done with a colander and a couple more bowls and a bigger oven dish but we managed. Little things, that would not stop me staying there again. Showers were great. The dyson hoover was ok but, couldn't hoover well before we left as the battery ran down really quick. Overall, a lovely lodge, had a fabulous chilled out stay.

The property

Nestled in the hills between Tummel Bridge and Aberfeldy on the road to Schiehallion you will find Glengoulandie Country Lodges.

The lodge is set within a group of privately-owned lodges in the Glengoulandie Country Park in a quiet rural location.

This is Outlander country; the location was often used when filming the famous TV Series.

The red deer roam freely down to the lodge.

The comfortable log cabin style lodge is spacious and accommodating with fantastic views out towards the loch and the hills.

It is set in a quiet corner of the park with a small burn running alongside.

Beautifully furnished throughout, to provide contemporary accommodation, this is the ideal location for a family of six or group of friends wanting to enjoy a holiday together and experience the beauty of the central highlands.

Through the front door you will step into a large welcoming entrance hall where you can leave your outdoor clothes before entering the large open-plan living area.

With high wooden ceilings large windows and patio doors, this is a light room with all the characteristics of a stylish lodge.

You will find comfy sofas for relaxing at the end of a busy day, a dining table to enjoy a meal with family or friends, a breakfast bar around the well-equipped fitted kitchen area.

There are patio doors that open out onto a decked area overlooking the small loch and hillside.

The ideal place to enjoy morning coffee or watch the sun set behind the hills with a glass of wine on a warm evening.

The accommodation is all on one level with plenty of room for everyone.

There are three bedrooms all with access to a bathroom.

Glengoulandie is situated on a single-track road with passing places between Tummel Bridge and Aberfeldy.

Looking out towards the mountain Dun Beag where the deer graze on the hillside near to the lodge.

Drive into the market town of Aberfeldy where you will discover, Dewar’s Distillery, The Watermill bookshop, The Birks Cinema, a 9 hole golf course and the famous waterfall walk “The Birks of Aberfeldy”.

Close by visit Weem Castle, take a Highland Safari on land or loch to discover native wildlife, visit the red deer, pan for gold or step back in time at the Crannog Centre.

Or just sit back and relax, soak up the magnificent scenery while watching the red deer, red squirrels, birds of prey and an abundance of wildlife literally on your doorstep.

This is a wonderful lodge to be enjoyed any time of the year.

About the location


Pitlochry 14 miles; Perth 31 miles.

The market town of Aberfeldy stands on the River Tay amidst beautiful scenery in rural Perthshire. Famous for its association with Burns and his poem The Birks Of Aberfeldy, and also the bridge built for General Wade in 1733, Aberfeldy is just south of Glen Lyon, known as the longest, loneliest, and loveliest glen in Scotland. There is much to attract the visitor in addition to the spectacular scenery. There is a 10 mile riverside walk for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as numerous paths through forest and countryside. In addition, Aberfeldy is on the Rob Roy Way and Cycle Route 7. Whitewater rafting on the River Tay is an exhilarating way to enjoy the scenery. Castle Menzies is a wonderful 16th century castle, now fully restored and open to visitors. Take a distillery tour at Dewar’s World of Whisky on the edge of town. Sample the many bars, restaurants and cafes in the town and explore the galleries and craft shops, including the Scottish Chocolate Centre. The Scottish Crannog Centre offers a glimpse into Iron Age life and Loch Tay offers a multitude of watersports, while Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are on your doorstep. An hours drive brings you to 30 Munros, just waiting to be 'bagged'!
