Lodge very clean, well maintained and equipped, and with plenty of its own space. The loch and mountain views, the peace and restfulness of the place, even the purity of the tap water, all make you want to stay. Review posted 13th August." "My daughter rented two cottages at Portnellan for the celebration of her 21st birthday. We had no idea what to expect before we arrived, and we had travelled from the United States to attend her birthday. The magic of Portnellan added to the magic of seeing my daughter turn 21. What a beautiful location, and the cottages were lovely vacation homes with everything we could need." "Everyone had a terrific time, the young ones and us old-timers! Thank you to the gracious staff (namely Cameron's family.) You made us feel welcome and made her celebration a delight!" "I highly recommend these cottages for anyone who loves a magical place to sleep and roam in one of the most magical places I've ever been! Review posted 14th August." "Outstanding as usual. A warm welcome from Cameron and family. Spotlessly clean lodge , stunning scenery and great touring base. Would recommend this to anyone looking for luxury self catering in Scotland.

“Fantastische locatie en geweldige uitvalsbasis om uit te rusten na een wandeling. Kievit is comfortabel en huiselijk; uitzicht bij zonsopgang en zonsopgang waren geweldig. Cameron en Jane waren mooi en de plaatselijke bezorgservice voor aankomst was erg behulpzaam.”
Room 1 has a double bed with a separate living area, with sofa, TV and table for 4. The sofa pulls down to provide a small bed, but we recommend this is for a 1 or 2 small children, or if someone can't sleep/partner snores! This room has a private adjoined bathroom with bath and shower.
“Katy en Richard zijn erg vriendelijk en makkelijk om mee te communiceren. De plaats was echt heel leuk, grote keuken en woonkamer, alles was super schoon en het bed was super comfortabel! De locatie is ook erg mooi en er zijn veel mooie wandelingen. Zou zeker terugkomen !!”

“Dit is een uitzonderlijke locatie. Als u op zoek bent naar een landelijke locatie met een ongelooflijk uitzicht op de bergen terwijl u dicht bij lochs en dorpen blijft, is dit ideaal. Het huis maakt deel uit van een veel groter complex. Er zijn fietsen en andere buitenuitrusting te huur; kippen, eenden en varkens om van te genieten; advies over wandelpaden en activiteiten; geweldige gastheren, die niet alleen lokale producten promoten in hun kleine en verrassend chique winkel, maar ook gasten de mogelijkheid bieden om een heerlijke geserveerde maaltijd te hebben of traktaties op hen te wachten bij aankomst 'thuis' van een drukke dag. Geweldige plek, geweldige gastheren! Ik kijk ernaar uit om weer te blijven.”
