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!

Best wishes,

Russell and Sandy

We had a fantastic long weekend at The Rainbow lodge. The lodge itself is outstanding and the location was perfect with stunning views. The owners of the lodge provide a very personable service and our welcome was lovely (cake and wine :-) ). We will definitely be back!

Heaven on the Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked for a week to celebrate my 60th birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. The accommodation at the lodge with it's wonderful surroundings was exactly what we were looking for. The lodge was first class, exactly as described in the listing and maintained to an exceptionally high standard. The booking procedure was extremely straight forward and the customer service was superb. It was obvious that the owners are passionate about their properties. We would highly recommend and are looking forward to our return visit.

Had a lovely week long break over Xmas in the beautiful Rainbow Lodge. It was so comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

On our arrival Russell and Sandy had made the lodge so welcoming with a lovely Xmas tree all lit up and an amazing gift pack full of lovely goodies. On entering the lodge we were met with a stunning view over the loch and hills where we could watch the deer roaming around. The lodge is so spacious and very well equipped. It was our first Xmas away from home and it exceeded our expectations. We hope to return in the summer months and explore more of the beautiful countryside. We would highly recommend a stay in this lovely lodge. Thanks again Russell and Sandy for making us so welcome.

The Perfect Family Holiday 5*****

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were joined by our daughter and her husband and baby for a fantastic stay at this beautiful Lodge. We were delighted with the accommodation and the setting was exceptional. We arrived to find a welcoming starter pack which was most appreciated Thank You! The Lodge is sheer quality, the bedrooms are all very well presented with all linen and towels provided. The open-plan living room looks out at spectacular scenery and small loch, with swans, ducks, herons. The booking process was effortless and both Russell and Sandy were very helpful, especially concerning our extra requirements for our six month old Granddaughter and nothing was ever a problem. We found the Lodge's own website excellent with a comprehensive set of links to local places of interest and this helped us to plan our days out. This is a five star holiday property with a five star all round service! Thank you both!

Fantastic accommodation in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

These lodges are very well maintained and in general a very high standard. A great open plan living, dining and kitchen area with balcony over hanging the private loch. Bedrooms with ensuite and free wifi just give exceptional comfort for a great break away, only down side is that I left it too late to book this for another family getaway for the Christmas holiday but it did remind me to leave that review I said I would. Will defo be back here.
