Bright, spacious, open plan living room / dining room with vaulted ceiling, oak flooring, and comfortable sofas. Large picture windows to make the most of the amazing views from the lounge and master bedroom. Large double doors lead out to a large balcony overhanging the edge of the Lochan.

The fully equipped kitchen, with top of the range appliances and a spacious dining area give the Lodges a feeling of home away from home.

About Russell Gillespie

My family and I fell in love with these Lodges when we first came to stay here in May 2014.

Little did we know that such a holiday would turn into such a wonderful life changing experience - that we would end up taking over this established business from the previous owners and continue in their footsteps, all in under a year!

As a family we have always loved the idea of getting away to an idyllic retreat by a lake in the mountains, and we found it here.

As new owners we had to start a new listing with HomeAway. The previous owners had many wonderful reviews from guests who loved their holiday at Glengoulandie.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Lodges, and hope you enjoy the experience just as much as we do!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days at the Rainbow Lodge. The lodge itself is beautiful...clean, spacious, and very well equipped. There were lots of little touches that make such a difference when you're staying away from home. The stunning views, cosy log burner, thoughtful welcome pack...were everything we needed for a relaxing family break! Thank you so much!

Deer at dawn

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the stay was wonderful, from the scenery outside to the warmth inside. The best lodge we have stayed at. Extremely comfortable and cared for. A real treat was stepping out of the shower onto the warm bathroom floor in the morning. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent location and accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lodge for the week of our sons wedding in Kenmore and used it as our base in the week leading up (and to relax the day following !!).

Location was excellent and with 3 bedrooms all en-suite it was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was well equipped and Alice managed to bake and ice over 100 cup cakes ready for the big day.

It was wonderful to wake up each morning and draw back our curtains to look over the lochan to the deer park and mountains beyond. I even managed to catch a small wild brownie on the fly on the last day.

Our magical holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early evening to find a serene hideaway - a lovely lodge overlooking a lochan with swans and cygnets, ducks and ducklings, swallows, and a herd of young deer on the hillside. The lodge was so spacious, with wonderful solid and comfortable furniture. The 3 bedrooms are in separate areas (ideal with kids!). The large, light seating area had doors to a very safe balcony, and the big bean bag and larger floor cushion left lots of settee space (ideal for big people). Lovely to arrive and find a few cooking supplies plus the necessities for the first evening - milk, bread, and a lovely cake, etc! Also useful - extra cupboard space. Our 5 and 8 yr olds enjoyed Kenmore's playpark, and the Crannog Centre; the play area next to the Country Store (useful). They also loved - the walk up Acharn to the cave, waterfall and hill climb above (play area near car park), and the quieter roads beyond Bridge of Balgie (good tea shop!) for cycling and dam building. The big people enjoyed a wet-suited swim in Loch Tay at Kenmore. A very big thank you to our host and hostess. WE will be back!
