“Fabulous home and views!”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This beautiful home sits on multiple acres of rolling farmland with spectacular views and Highland cows. There were even two new baby calves born just before we arrived. The house is very large and much better equipped than I have seen in other rentals. Bill and Steph were great hosts. They welcomed us with basket of food and some grocery essentials, which was very appreciated. The house is centrally located with access to multiple major sties and activities. We would definitely come back.

“Excellent return holiday”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Returned to the lodge after a very successful holiday last year with friends. After a warm welcome we settled in to have one of the most relaxing holidays of my life.
Property ideal for two families as there are two wings each with their own facilities. Plenty of wild life and good restaurants / takeaways close by.

“Best base to explore the highlands and whisky trail”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Lochan Lodge with two families (kids aged 9 - 11) for a week in August 2015. The lodge is perfect for two families as there are two "wings", one wing with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom and the other wing with two en-suite bedrooms. The location at a small loch on the farm is stunning, Grantown-on-Spey (supermakret, shops etc) is a 10 min drive away.
Bill and Steph and their son Alex made us very welcome, they showed us around, provided some homemade bread, jam and other goodies to get us started. They know the area very well and are happy to share their knowledge (e.g. about whisky;-) with their guests.
The lodge was very clean, comfortable and well equipped (kitchen, tv, washing machine, dryer etc...). The surrounding farmland is a great place for long walks with amazing bird and wildlife.
Lochan Lodge is the perfect base for visits to the Scottish highlands and whisky distilleries amongst other things.

“When you've tried the rest, go stay with the best”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Simply put, Lochan Lodge is a home way from home, with all the amenities and comforts anyone would need on a vacation. Geographically very well situated to explore the region, coupled with complete freedom to hike and enjoy this working cattle farm, we could not have chosen a better place to visit the highlands with kids and friends. The lodge itself is very well maintained, with crisp linens, well equipped kitchen, wi-fi, TV etc. A "welcome" food hamper was an unexpected and nice touch on arrival. For just about any traveller who enjoys the outdoors, or who simply wants to put their feet up, there is a little piece of paradise to be found at Lochan…!

Thanks Bill and Steph - you are very gracious hosts with a truly top-notch setup!
