Easy process to rent the cabin. Super quiet location overlooking a picturesque loch. The hot tub is definitely to be enjoyed at night whilst star gazing.

Relaxation with wonderful view
Very peaceful with wonderful view of the loch. Essentials provided but if cooking rice then would recommend taking a sieve. Recommend The Clachlan Inn for food but need to pre-book. Places visited: Threave Gardens Murray’s Monument Glasgow Kippford Ayr Wigtown All in all a lovely relaxing comfortable stay.

Cosy place
What a lovely place to stay. Very cosy, clean and simple. Great views and very relaxing and away from people. Even had red squirrels in the wood surrounding the pod. Clear nights watching the stars whilst sat in the hot tub. A memorable holiday.
