About Mrs Shelagh Richards

Hi, we're Bob , Shelagh and Ernie the border Terrier. We live in Scotland and love using Pucks Lodge to escape

Mrs Shelagh Richards purchased this lodge in 2009

Why Mrs Shelagh Richards chose Argyll and Bute

We fell in love with this peaceful area of Scotland and bought our holiday home in 2009. We had such fun using it that we decided to share it and allow other people to enjoy the beautiful area.

What makes this lodge unique

Being dog owners , we were always looking for pet friendly properties that allowed us to enjoy beautiful scenery. We fell in love with the area around Pucks Glen , it has a magical feel and Ernie the border terrier just loves exploring the woodland.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely lodge. Of course we walked the Pucks Glen walk, we spent a whole day in Benmore Gardens and we visited Dunoon. We loved the blooming rhododendrons in the woods. One day we saw a little deer on the terrain of the lodges. We just said to each other, we have not seen deer here and there he was!

Thank you for staying in your lodge.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Located right on pucks Glen so super walks. Cosy Lodge, fully equipped. The children enjoyed the ferry to Dunoon. Its a shame we left the dog at home.

Great lodge in an amazing spot! From first booking Shelagh and Bob were so helpful. The lodge was spotless and there was absolutely everything you need and more- fresh milk and welcome ‘teacakes’. Enclosed decking area so the dogs were safe. Directly behind the lodge was Pucks Glen- the most magical forest with amazing waterfalls. We also visited Benmore botanical gardens- also fabulous.

Myself, my family and my dogs had a great time at Pucks lodge- highly recommend it. Would definitely go for a return visit 😊

Owner's Response: We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Pucks Lodge. It is as described a traditional log cabin, and unfortunately the timing of your visit coincided with ‘The Beast from the East’ and probably some of the coldest temperatures we have experienced in years. The electricity usuage would be higher than normal , but we run an honesty box system, there is an allowance in the cost of the holiday and we simply ask visitors to pay for any extra electric they use above this allowance (this is charged at the electric suppliers rate ) . We use this system rather than charge more for the holiday as we feel it is fairer for people to pay for what they use rather than charge everyone more. We hope this didn’t spoil your enjoyment of the area, which beautiful in all weathers.

Beautiful lodge with fantastic adventures on the doorstep.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here. The lodge comes equipped with everything you need. The walks round Pucks Glen are amazing and the Botanical Gardens are also a nice walk away (if you dont want to drive). We will definitely be returning when our son is older so he can let his imagination run wild amongst all the trees and waterfalls. Plus Tunnocks teacakes upon arrival made a nice treat ;)

Lovely well appointed lodge in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is situated in a lovely spot beside pucks glen where there are lovely walks and a short distance from the Benmore Botanic Gardens. Lots of nice places to visit within a half hour to an hours drive away. Great place to just get away for a few days to relax. The lodge itself is very homely and is very well appointed with everything you would need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The kitchen has all the necessary pots/pans/dishes/cutlery/utensils that you need to make a family meal, and a dishwasher to help with the washing up.
