The lodge was very clean and tidy and very dog friendly the best we have stayed at. And the food at the slaters arms is very very good, and all the staff make you feel at home. I would like to thank Angie scot and staff for making this a very good holiday. Thank you all

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. The lochs and scenery was out of the world. Our dog was made very welcome and she made lots of friends. We'll worth a visit

Reviewed by Duncan 7th June 2019

Comfortable well equipped lodge, ideal for a break with the dogs. Best suited for walkers / explorers looking for a base camp rather than a residential holiday, ideally located for Glen Affric walks. Owners are very helpful and dog lovers, they also own the adjacent pub which is dog friendly and very convenient.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views, situated at the back of the Slaters Arms which has a restaurant with lovely food (highly recommend the shin of beef) and also does takeaways. We were made to feel welcome, good walks from the cottage which was really clean on arrival
