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

Fabulous stay at Rainbow lodge

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was large, comfortable and scrupulously clean on arrival and Russell and Sandy had left some welcome gifts for us (beautiful cake, wine and basic supplies)The setting is just wonderful, right on the edge of the lochan. The nesting swans, geese and ducks provided great entertainment :) Centrally located for many sights and activities. Can highly recommend this holiday lodge.

Beautiful, well situated haven.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rainbow lodge for a week in April and had a lovely time. We had sunshine and showers but the area was beautiful nevertheless. The lodge is nicely situated on the edge of a small loch and from the balcony you can sit and watch an abundance of wildlife from swans and ducks to deer. The lodge itself is well appointed with modern styling, comfortable beds and powerful showers! The owners were kind enough to leave some welcome gifts of cake and wine and although they were staying next door for the week they were not intrusive but offered good advice on local places to visit and were extremely helpful. The Indian restaurant, Chillies in Aberfeldy was very nice as was the Watermill tearoom. Good local beer can be found at the Aileen Chraggan hotel. Pitlochry is well worth a visit as is the Highland Chocolatier and local scenery around Schiehallion is beautiful. The advertisement for the lodge is accurate and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the lodge to friends, hopefully we will return ourselves in the not too distant future.

Great cabin in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high specification. Right by the side of a loch a short drive from Aberfeldy, it is surrounded by lovely scenery. We received a wonderful welcome pack, complete with a bottle of wine to unwind after our long drive. The owners are onsite and ready to help if any problems arise. Perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday or if of a more energetic nature, plenty of walks, of different levels, in the area.

Lovely relaxing home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2017 with our daughter and her grandparents. it was a fantastic stay, a real home away from home. Beautiful location and very well appointed with everything we needed. Easy access to Aberfeldy and Kenmore with lovely walks in the surrounding area. Would highly recommend and will return when next back in that part of the world. Thank you very much to Russell for letting us stay.
