About Stephen & Liz

Your hosts, Stephen & Liz began providing holiday accommodation in Scotland in 1989, when they ran a small youth hostel for Backpackers. Then, after many years of working in Hospitality, they acquired their first log cabin in 2001. They now have four, all of which they have personally maintained, furnished and equipped to the high quality standard they are today. Stephen and Liz both appreciate how important it is for guests to feel welcome on their travels and to stay in warm, clean, comfortable accommodation, and have lots of information around to help in their enjoyment. If you need help, they live locally and have lots of tips on where is best to visit, where to dine etc. Over the years they have met many wonderful people and they enjoy taking many breaks themselves, when they can.

Stephen & Liz purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Stephen & Liz chose Dunoon

Stephen & Liz were bowled over by the beauty of the natural landscape of the area and settled with their family in 2000. In 2013 they designed, built, decorated and furnished Bramble Lodge from scratch. They wanted to provide guests with an enjoyable stay in an 'Amazing Space' (in an amazing place) close to the river and surrounded by Nature. Apart from its neighbour, Hawthorn Lodge, there is no other like it in Scotland. It's perfect for two, perfect for romance and easy to get to. There is a sense of seclusion, yet the nearest town, Dunoon, is only 10 mins drive and the nearest city, Glasgow, is only 90 mins away. Stephen & Liz made this area their home, and they are pleased to be able to share a little part of it with you.

What makes this cabin unique

Being 'local', Stephen and Liz are on hand if any help is required, and they are always happy to share information about the area, places to visit, things to see and do. Many have mentioned how good it is to receive personal recommendations.

Unlike other lodges in the area Bramble Lodge is fully double glazed for added comfort and security, and the Rental INCLUDES Electricity, Bed Linen, Towels, Complimentary Toiletries, Wi-fi and Parking - there's no hidden costs.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely location by the riverside and looking towards the mountain. Close to magical walks direct from the lodge. E.G. Pucks Glen and Benmore Botanical gardens. Friendly owners without being too intrusive.

Gorgeous cabin- would highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the outstanding quality of this cabin. It felt brand new and was so cosy, clean and homely. The kitchen was very well-equipped and the owners were so helpful with recommendations and tips. The location was also amazing. A five minute walk from 'Puck's Glen' which is a stunning forest (even in the rain!) that genuinely resembled a scene from 'Lord of the Rings'.

The cabin was a short distance away from a grocery shop in Dunoon and there is so much to do nearby. Would strongly recommend a visit to Loch Lomond- Luss and the Fyne Ale Brewery which are both short drives away.

Thank you for such a lovely holiday- cannot fault the accommodation or the location. 10/10 :)

Very nice and homely and very comfortable for an extended stay

  • 4 of 5

A great little getaway however it isn't very well explained that in order to access much of the area around the cabin , a car would help due to many of the Roads not having pavements which makes travel somewhat difficult, this doesn't detract from the cabin itself which is very comfy and cosy

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our lodge. Although there are many pedestrian paths and tracks near the lodge it is true that to fully appreciate the area a car is advised. Many visitors appreciate the close proximity of forest and hills. The nearest shop is only 1 mile away, but the town is 6 miles, or 10 minutes drive. Major attractions such as the Botanical Gardens and Pucks Glen are easily accessible on foot along traffic-free paths. An information pack is also provided, with visitor recommendations. The views to the river and the bird and wildlife are particularly enjoyed by guests.
