“The only place to stay in the Highlands”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A brilliant place to stay. The lodge was really comfortable and well equipped. Steph had prepared a starter hamper which we found very useful.

Bill even delayed moving the Highland Coos with calves into a field further from the lodge so that we could see them close up as he knew how much we were looking forward to seeing them.

The views from the lodge were stunning. There was an abundance of wildlife just in front of you. An Osprey liked to fish in the Lochan and we saw a deer close to the woods.

If you love Highland Coos, birds and wildlife then this is the place for you.

Thank you Steph and Bill for being excellent hosts. We had a very enjoyable week and will definitely be back.

Just back from new year break at Lochan Lodge it was fabulous far exceeded our expectations. Pictures on website doesn't do it justice. House was clean warm and very comfortable with everything you needed including lovely starter hamper from Bill & Steph.
The views are stunning and waking up to highland cows and pheasants outside was lovely. Very peaceful and relaxing. Bill and Steph are very attentive and we will definitely be back.

“Best place to stay in the Highlands!!”

I can not rate Lochan Lodge high enough, the Lodge exceeded all our expectations. Steph and Bill ensured we had a travel cot, play gym and lovely rocking chair, to accommodate our 3 month baby. Our six year old loved running around the grounds with Alex and our 13 year old was in his element having a games room to retire too!
The Lodge was well equipt which made it feel home from home and special touches made it a wonderful place to stay.
Big enough for all of us to enjoy without living on top of one another, it really is recommended for extended family or friends to stay.
The view was beautiful and we loved going for walks, passing by the highland coo and catching sight of local wildlife such as rabbits, pheasants, badgers and a great selection of birds.
Steph was brilliant in helping us with knowledge of what to do and where to go, due to her 7 years experience as a tour guide. I can honestly say I intend to return in the next couple of years again.

“Can't Image a Better Place to Stay in the Highlands”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lochan Lodge has it all; amazing views, Highland cows, pheasants, the most comfortable well equipped home, such friendly, thoughtful and knowledgeable hosts. With four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, large family room, dining area, large and well equipped kitchen and complete laundry, there was plenty of room for a large family to comfortably extend itself.
Then there was the outdoors, verandah with BBQ and dining table and chairs overlooking your own little loch. We were spoilt and enjoyed every moment, especially the rugged beauty of the surrounds. I don't often take the time to write reviews but on this occasion the hosts Steph, Bill and Alex are so deserving. Thank you and cheers. The Ireland Clan.

“Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family spent out Summer holiday here; it is the most idyllic spot with breathtaking scenery and an incredible array of birds and other wildlife. The accommodation is very spacious, modern and equipped with all the items you would hope to have in your own home: Ipod/iphone dock, WiFi, great TV and a fantastic selection of films, books and games. The accommodation is also packed with surprises such as the great mattresses, BBQ, lake and of course the wonderful hosts Steph and Bill.

Everyone should have at least one holiday in the Cairngorms National Park and you can do no better than staying here!
