The Lodge at Glen Strae
Our traditional Scottish lodge may not be achingly smart, but it is incredibly homely, warm and comfortable. It has been our family’s second home for many years and we love nothing more than welcoming friends old and new.
The kitchen is well equipped and contains both a Rayburn stove and an electric double oven. There is a dishwasher, large fridge and separate freezer, as well as a large larder. The kitchen table comfortably seats about eight and there is a further dining room next door seating ten.
The cosy sitting room has a log fire. Logs are stored in the garage and you are welcome to help yourself to them.
The lodge sleeps ten people. One bedroom is a double and all other rooms are twin. Two of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor. All beds are made up with duvets and electric blankets, all linen and bath towels are provided.
There are three bathrooms upstairs, one of which is an en suite. Bathrooms have heated towel rails and a good supply of hot water. There is a cloakroom on the ground floor.
Laundry & Drying Room
There is a washing machine and tumble dryer that guests are welcome to use. The drying room is ideally suited for all your wet weather kit after a day exploring outside.
T.V and Wifi
We have both sky television and wifi within the lodge.
Dogs are welcome in the house although we would appreciate it if they can be kept downstairs and out of the bedrooms.
The garden is lovely with plenty of lawn. It is an enclosed space with a good fence all the way round, so perfectly safe to keep little ones and dogs contained!

We want you to make the absolute best of your time at Glen Strae and have a number of friendly faces on hand to make sure that happens.
Mark is on hand to help with boating, sport or general mucking about. We recommend you seek him out as nobody knows how to make the best of the place as well as he does.
Stuart is the shepherd and looks after the farm and the animals, he lives on the farm just above the lodge so he is your closest neighbour.
Their respective wives, Maria and Cherie, look after the lodge. Should you require any extra help with the lodge during your stay, do let us know in advance so that we can see what arrangements can be made.

There is a very good pharmacy and Doctors in Dalmally should it be required. Depending on daily opening times there is a further surgery in Taynuilt which is about 30 minutes from the lodge on the way to Oban.
Tesco in Oban is your nearest large supermarket. They do make deliveries but we advise you to book this in well in advance. Get directions.
