A wee note from your hosts:
We must advise that pets are not accepted at this lodge. We appreciate this must be disappointing for pet-owners (like ourselves), but many guests suffer from allergies and the pets themselves can be rather rough on carpets and furniture, so we believe this is best for all.
Your Hosts have 3 more lodges and 1 lodging in the area. 'Calltainn', identical in almost every way to Fraochan, is nearby, whilst Bramble and Hawthorn Lodges, and The Wee Ludging, each sleeping 2, are located off-site by the River Eachaig.
