Kinnloch Rannoch is an ideal base to get away from it all. The views from your own enclosed balcony/conservatory are stunning, Our unit (Red Deer 1) was clean, comfortable and very well equipped down to Yorkshire pudding tins, slow cooker, a large range of crockery and even tupperware for your pack-up when roaming the hills. The furnishings were a little dated but we were here for the external views not the fittings. Staff were very helpful, quick to respond to a minor maintenance issue and ran some enjoyable events (Monday's Clan Night and the Wed Whiskey tasting). The welcome meeting was actually useful (no hard sell) though do leave before the Manager starts his resort review and update! It is a long drive in and out of the valley but you have to put the effort in if you really want to get away from it all. We enjoyed walks in the local forest above the loch and a trip on the scenic rail route from Rannoch station (best scones ever served at the station) to Mallaig but did not even get round to using the local bike hire company to cycle round the loch. A visit to Newtonmore Highland Games was fun, Glamis Castle was well worth the visit and Aberfeldy was lovely with the bracing Birks walk and plenty of choice for eating without the usual tourist premium prices that you get in Pitlochry and the Rannoch valley. The managers tip for a walk round Blair Atholl was useful and the neighbouring Watermill Cafe was a lovely spot for lunch selling its own fresh baked bread, shortcake and flour to take home. If we ever wanted another get away from it all and relax break, we would certainly consider returning here.

Not much to say, really, as this was our second visit of four this year and it was as enjoyable an experience as ever. We had friends with us this time and they were able to testify to the excellence of the pull-down double bed. All LRHC units have the same facility - a strange and wonderful throwback to the 1970s which encompasses a pull-down full double, lots of wardrobe storage for clothes and, weirdest of all, a drinks cabinet with mirror drop-shelf and sliding glass. No ropey bed-settees for LRHC! Instead you have a piece of furniture which isn't intrusive (even the smaller apartments have a very decent size lounge area) but is big enough for 007 to disappear the bad guy in (or Benny Hill - given that the fold-up bed featured in as many farces as thrillers!). We had a great time in a wonderful part of the country - enhanced by the resort's 'grass maintenance staff': the flock of sheep munching their way round! Even Shaun the Sheep holidays at LRHC!

Beautiful setting. Very quiet and ideal if want a good walking holiday. Lack of pool and somewhere to eat on site. Car essential. Lots of steps to accommodation and some tricky parking. Lodge very well equipped with plenty of cutlery, crockery and kitchen utensils. Hair drier borrowed on deposit. Would go again.

Parking was a bit difficult and there could have been more information on the appliances eg the TV

Beautiful scenery and total peace retreat. Property comfortable , spacious and well equipped, Ideal place to leave it all behind. The hotels are pricey and not much choice for shopping with the nearest town 45 mins away, Recommend getting an Asda delivery for your groceries. Lovely relaxing holiday will definitely return, Would have been nice to use the pool.

Excellent location and views from the apartment

Review No: 8 by Mr & Mrs Campbell who stayed here on 05/07/2018 Language Flag

A lovely setting at the loch side lodge was excellent with a great view of the loch. It is a pity that the hotel does not allow the use of the swimming pool but we knew this before hand so not a problem. there are a lot of steps to the lodge but again fore warned = fore armed. all in all it was a very good holiday with good walks close at hand.

Review No: 9 by Dr Foster who stayed here on 05/07/2018 Language Flag

First of four visits this year and in a 1 bed overlooking the loch - spectacular view! Great conservatory, spacious lounge/kitchen (not gigantic but well designed and thus comfortable space) similar to all LRHC units. We've not used the lounge bed in all the years we've been coming here (different units each time) but it's a smart pull-down-cupboard arrangement which appears, to me, to be preferable to the sofa-bed often spotted in other resorts. The furniture and furmishings are 'old-fashioned' according to my wife but so am I and so I rather like their solidity. Wi-fi was first-rate (which isn't always the case), beds comfortable and bathroom small but functional (it's a bathroom!). Only drawback was the fact that the shower was not working properly and gave out very hot or cold with nothing in between. We reported it and, if the past predicts the future, they'll have fixed it promptly. We caught the last week of the heatwave (with one day of much-needed rain) and so the weather was perfect. There's so much to do around Perthshire for those with a bit of gumption and adventure but the resort is an ideal spot for gentle chilling out. I do see reviews which note the remoteness of the place ("ehm, that's the point!") and the lack of facilities such as a restaurant. Thank goodness for that, I say: if I want mediocre eating then I can go elsewhere. For good eating, try the local restaurants at Struan, Inn on the Tummel and so forth and, to combat the dreaded 'remoteness', take the 25 minute drive to the tourist hubbub of Pitlochry. Alternatively, drive or cycle up to Rannoch Station, try the delicious cakes in the tearoom and then hop on the train to Fort William or, for a longer day, to Mallaig on the West Highland line and some of the best fish-and-chips ever!

Review No: 10 by Mr & Mrs Shaw who stayed here on 05/07/2018 Language Flag

Beautiful site and location. Definitely need car roads very narrow and winding. Rannoch loch is right opposite site lots of lovely beach areas around the loch for fishing, swimming. Great pity we couldn’t use pool at hotel . We were in red squirrel 6 which overlook loch but parking can be difficult due to staff cars. If you like walking and cycling this is for you if not you have a twenty minute drive to get anywhere.

Review No: 11 by Mr & Mrs Hudson-Peacock who stayed here on 05/07/2018 Language Flag

Loch Rannoch Highland Club. Beautiful location, the house is well appointed although we did have to go and ask for a kettle upon arrival. Some attention is needed, screws loose in a cupboard door and window unable to close for example. However our stay was enjoyable and comfortable. The biggest drawback for us was the only hotel on the site where the food and drink was expensive and the service at the bar was "half-hearted!" Fortunately both the DunAlistair and the café in the village were considerably better, and the fish and chip van visits the village square, so only a short drive or a pleasant walk away. It is several years since our last visit to Loch Rannoch, and we did enjoy our return trip. The service given by the administrative staff to us was excellent, so in conclusion, its a beautiful place to visit and I am sure each visitor will have different opinions and experiences, but overall we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Fantastic Location with great views & local walks.

Review No: 13 by Mr Lafaye who stayed here on 29/06/2018 Language Flag

The flat was good and cleaned but the staircase should be cleaned and renovated. The environment is a little bit more noisy than the lodge we had the first week of our stay.

Review No: 14 by Mr Lafaye who stayed here on 23/06/2018 Language Flag

We had a great time in the lodge with an breathtaking view over the lake. Very calm and quiet.

Review No: 15 by Mrs Morson who stayed here on 16/06/2018 Language Flag

Perfect location for awesome Scottish scenery. Right on the side of Loch Rannoch with spectacular loch views. Ideal for cyclists, walkers and general outdoors sightseeing. Short stroll into Kinloch Rannoch where you will find a cafe, art gallery, local shop and post office. Also high end hotel Dunalastair, for a very nice special meal or afternoon tea. The famous Rannoch Station Cafe is a 17 mile drive / cycle away. Coffee and cake heaven. Good walks from there too, 12 miles to Glencoe! The lodge itself was very well equipped. Bedroom furnishings a little dated but perfectly adequate. Some lodges are built into the hillside. Ours smelt a little musty on ground floor however the use of the sauna located on that floor helped. The top floor with kitchen, living space and loch views is spectacular. Overall 9/10. We would definitely go back as the location for us as cyclists was superb.

Review No: 16 by Mr & Mrs Lawson who stayed here on 16/06/2018 Language Flag

The only downside to the property if the long narrow road with blind bends (about 17 miles) from Pitlochry which has logging wagons and delivery wagons flying along it. And I mean flying. If you can plan your route you can come in from Aberfeldy and head towards Tummel Bridge on the B846. After the village of cosheville watch out for a small sign on the right hand side of the road, all it says is Schiehallion Road. Turn left and follow that road to Kinnloch rannoch. It is still a narrow road with a few blind bends but much of it is straight. The advantage is that it does not have logging or delivery wagons as it is unsuitable for vehicles over 7.5 tons. It is a very pleasant road and much safer. It is probably no use in winter as I would think it will get snowed over. My only other criticism is the patchy wifi. Our friends next door but one had a full signal, we had virtually no signal which kept dropping out. It seems that there isn't a router in every lodge. This is a great place to go and do very little other that sit and look out over the loch or go for walks in the local countryside. They have a few activities, such a walking tour and a whisky night on site but other than the MacDonald Hotel there is not cafe or activity room. A cafe or restaurant onsite would transform this property.

Review No: 17 by Ms Dillon who stayed here on 09/06/2018 Language Flag

Had another fantastic week at Loch Rannoch. Stayed at HL 45 which involved a lot of steps inside and out, which was a challenge at times, but we got fitter. The staff are extremely professional and helpful as usual and we had great weather. invited my mum and brother, with his young son and they all enjoyed the stay, particularly impressed by the scenery from the lodge and facilities and spec of the apartment. The resort provided a cot, high chair and stairguard which were clean and functional We cycled around the Loch on Sunday to avoid any log lorries, and it was fabulous, so much so we turned around and did it in reverse. We cycled around Loch Tay a few days later and it was quite different, more frenetic and less scenic due to the traffic and fewer opportunities to stop. The electricity charge is quite steep but we appreciate with a sauna and the complications of a meter read it is the fairest option.

Review No: 18 by Mr McGibbon who stayed here on 09/06/2018 Language Flag

This resort will depend on what lodge you stay, we were informed that most lodges have some steps as they are built into a mountain side, some steps is not 80 stone steps to the front door and a further 16 stairs inside as the lodges are upside down, lounge and kitchen upstairs, bed rooms below. My wife and I are 73 years old and regard ourselves as fairly fit, but we found the climb to the front door far too hard and gave up on Wednesday and packed our bags and departed today, Thursday 14/06/18. Our dog is 11 years old and I had too carry him up a number of times. We got told they could not move us as all lodges had been booked, but we noticed that there were a few vacant at street level. This resort should carry a health warning.

Review No: 19 by Mr Sutcliffe who stayed here on 07/06/2018 Language Flag

The best equipped kitchen I have seen in over 30 years of exchanging timeshare apartments. Everything of highest quality, particularly glasses and crockery. No open balcony as they are all enclosed and equipped with conservatory type furniture and all windows open wide so plenty of air circulates. The main sitting/dining area is very well furnished and chairs are comfortable. There are a lot of steps both outside and within the apartments but despite our poor mobility, it was well worth the effort as the views across the loch were wonderful. Parking arrangements were good with allocated spaces for each apartment and porters available to help with the luggage. Mid-week cleaning is available as an extra if required. There is a grocery shop/post office in the village supplying basics, daily newspapers etc. Most importantly, everyone is very friendly,both in the village and on the resort.

Had a really relaxing time, so peaceful & tranquil. Unfortunately not much around, however the views were stunning and great for walking the dog. Would definitely go back again, absolutely loved it.

Review No: 24 by Mr Bull who stayed here on 25/05/2018 Language Flag

My wife and I were very fortunate and had a gorgeous week of sunshine, and even went paddling in the Loch. Stunning location, spectacular views of the Loch from the balcony. Hired a bike from Dial a Bike Steve, who was very helpful. Juergen from Dial a Bus was also brilliant, and you only pay the cost of the bus fare, although he picks you up from apartment to your destination! Having a car is essential, as the area is remote, however, we soon got our bearings. Nice little village, and has a shop, cafe, hotel, medical centre if needed. If you have teenage kids though, they will need to be the adventurous type, and enjoy walking, cycling etc, otherwise they could be bored. First time in the Highlands for us and we loved the area, did very little hill walking as too hot! Never thought I would say that. Apartment rather old fashioned, but well equipped and wifi very good. You have your own car parking spot which is great. Definitely worth a try! Dave and Claire

Stunning venue. Stunning facilities. Helpful staff. Would recommend to anyone and have submitted numerous requests for a further booking.

Review No: 26 by Mr Poole who stayed here on 12/05/2018 Language Flag

A very beautiful resort but not good for people with mobility problems. It is on a hillside and most units have stairs to and inside the property. No restaurant or bar on site. No leisure facilities. Area is beautiful but remote, small shop in village and post office, tea room but not much else. The unit we had was immaculate and couldn't fault furnishings and utensils. Staff very helpful,. Would love to go back.

Review No: 27 by Mr & Mrs Hardy who stayed here on 27/04/2018 Language Flag

We stayed in Pine martin lodges these are due an up grade so we were informed and they do need it, most of the other lodges have been done, however it was very clean and everything was catered for apart from a hair dryer! We chose this resort as it was pet friendly, I really wouldn't recommend it for anyone who has mobility problems! the lodges are built into the side of a hill and 60 steps to get to the only bit of flat grass for the dog to have a run was hard going, dogs are required to be on a lead at all times in the resort not a problem but climbing up the side of a mountain was, also getting luggage and supplies into the lodge by two small flights of steps meant it was a team effort to unload! not all the lodges are like this so don't be put off staying there, the view was fantastic, great if you love walking and want to be miles from the world, weather was sunny but chilly at 7 degs. Rather disappointed that the hotel pool did not allow lodge residents to use it! Speaking to one of the staff I was informed that there are changes happening shortly.

Review No: 28 by Mr Stewart who stayed here on 21/04/2018 Language Flag

Another wonderful week spent at Kinloch Rannoch. Everything about this place is excellent, peaceful and delightful. Regardless of the ever changing weather, we always find something to do. Either walking, and there are numerous walks to do, cycling, either way round the loch or up and down to Rannoch station. A pleasant walk round the village, or drive down to Bruar Falls and Glen Tilt. Our weeks goes past so quickly we always need to return. A home from home. Looking forward to our next trip already.

Review No: 29 by Mr & Mrs Cole who stayed here on 21/04/2018 Language Flag

The one and only criticism is that as we were in Highland Lodge 46 there are a lot of steps. In fact, from the car park area up to the living area in the lodge there are 86 steps! Not good when you are not as agile as you used to be!!! Other than that, this is a fantastic place for a holiday.

Review No: 30 by Mr Marsh who stayed here on 14/04/2018 Language Flag

We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in Highland Lodge 47 which enjoyed magnificent views of the loch and mountains. There were 80 steps to climb to reach it though! Kept us fit! The standard of the accommodation was among the best we've stayed in on exchange holidays. The kitchen in particular was very well equipped. The bathrooms were a little tired. We reported a problem with the walk-in shower as it didn't drain very quickly so experienced a flood on the floor. However, although it was reported on our second day, no-one came to inspect it during our stay. We thought that the standard charge for electricity of £55 plus vat was rather steep for two people. This may improve when the smart meters are activated. The wifi signal was fairly steady. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They recommended that we attend the welcome meeting to find out what was on during our week. However, it was geared towards owners, who I'm sure found it informative about future plans for the club and problems being rectified etc. We attended the clan night which was very interesting. We also greatly enjoyed the free guided walk one morning with Steve, going off the track into the Black Wood on the south side of the loch. The resort is well placed to reach local beauty spots but is rather remote, being 20 miles from the nearest fuel station. Although the drive to Pitlochry or Aberfeldy takes quite a time, the beauty of the countryside more than compensates. We'll be back one day.

Review No: 31 by Mrs Lang who stayed here on 14/04/2018 Language Flag

The 2 bed Highland Lodge was very comfortable , warm and well equipped. Although the fixed charge for electricity seemed excessive. The conservatory is an added bonus and although it had its own heating available it was not needed because of the radiant heat through the roof. A lovely place to sit and read or just soak up the views. The reason there are good views is that there are many steps to climb from the car parking to the unit door. Hard work packing and unpacking . More walks around the village and Loch. than anticipated , suited to all abilities. The village is peaceful and free of touristy influence . Due to the remote situation you will need to stock up with food as the nearest supermarkets are 18 miles away in Pitlochrey . There is a Co- Op in the village for emergency basics. Eating out is an expensive exercise as the two hotels have no competition. 18 miles to Rannoch Station where we caught a train to Glenfinnan for the day , it will take you to Fort William and on to as Mallaig if required. ( pay on the train) A lovely scenic journey. Given the chance would definitely visit again.

Superb view from the apartment. Really 'out in the wilds' but a great pleasure to drive on the almost entirely traffic free roads.

Some of the units have numerous steps to get to them but there are stunning views. Fill up with petrol and provisions as nearest supermarket 20miles away in Pitlochry although there is a local shop but not an easy walk to it. Lovely view comfortable lodge bed extremely good.

Review No: 34 by Mrs Caldow who stayed here on 12/04/2018 Language Flag

The site was tired but everything was clean. Lots of steps to lodge, a bit difficult with our dog. Would have been good to have a swim. Long way to travel for an average self catering lodge.

Review No: 35 by Mr Murphy who stayed here on 06/04/2018 Language Flag

Stock up on food/drink first, only a small shop near the resort. Asda, Co-op and Tesco will deliver Narrow roads and bends. Arriving at the village, the office is on the left opposite the medical centre. Complex is ¼ mile further on, where you will also find a McDonald hotel The complex is on a hillside & all units overlook the Loch. We had Pine Marten 3, a 2 bed unit. Steps to all units. Parking very restricted, bigger cars could struggle to get in some spaces Entry was at 1st floor level. A twin ensuite bedroom on this level & combined open plan lounge, dining room & kitchen. Patio doors to conservatory. Stairs lead down to the ground floor & a double ensuite bedroom & sauna. Patio doors from here lead to a wooden terrace approx 4m x 2.5m, great views but no patio furniture. Room is modern but lounge etc is very dated, typically Scottish dark decor & tartan. Not to our taste. From what we saw in other units, there is similar furniture & fittings. There is an abundance of cooking utensils & appliances, including crockery, cutlery & glassware. There is a pull down double bed in the lounge area. Electric heaters in all rooms including bathrooms. An information folder about the appliances & places to visit in the area. Other leaflets about activities are available in the office, hotel, café and shop. There's a set charge for electricity, varies according to season and size of unit 10 minute walk into the village which has a café, another hotel, an artists studio, a small repair garage, play park & grocers that sell many things It also has a Post Office counter open M - F, 0930-1130 & has a chargeable ATM. A medical centre, by appointment Visited Pitlochry, House of Bruar, Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Rannoch Great for outdoor activities, hiking, rambling, sightseeing mountaineering, cycling etc. Relaxing time. Caught up with reading material, fresh air & some wine Would we return, probably not, we prefer more modern accommodation, hotter climates and be

Review No: 38 by Mrs Roberton who stayed here on 29/03/2018 Language Flag

We had another great stay at Loch Rannoch, the snow was an added bonus! The lodge had excellent views and was well equipped. I had one problem the bed was very firm but as only 2 off us were staying we used the pull down bed in lounge area, this was much softer. We shall be back again.

Review No: 39 by Ms Martorano who stayed here on 24/03/2018 Language Flag

An excellent stay at this resort. Very well equipped lodge. We were in Highland 32. Amazing views. There are 3 roads into Kinloch Rannoch from the A9 and we tried them all - different scenery, so worth an explore.

Review No: 40 by Mrs Scott Cordingley who stayed here on 24/03/2018 Language Flag

The resort and accommodation are very nice. The views are magnificent. The only thing was in our confirmation it said you could get complimentary tea and coffee from the Dunalstair Hotel nearby upon arrival and I also phoned the resort to check this and was told that yes this is correct. However, upon arrival, we were told this was not the case!! Also, the welcome meeting was cancelled without any prior notice, people were waiting outside the Village Hall and as no one turned up, we went to reception to be told it had been cancelled!! There should be more organisation and it seems a bit his and miss. Apart, from this, the resort is lovely with stunning views. we will definitely return and hopefully the organisation of events will run smoothly.

Review No: 41 by Mrs Jones who stayed here on 22/03/2018 Language Flag

The scenery was stunning and took our breath away. The loch and mountains were magnificent. Plenty of places of interest to visit and local walks. Can't wait to stay again later this year.

Review No: 42 by Mr Smith who stayed here on 08/03/2018 Language Flag

To start with a positive. The views from this property are idyllic, as a consequence of which one can overlook and forgive the rather dated decor within the property itself. What we cannot either overlook or forgive is that our holiday was spoilt by an electric heating problem within the unit and the total inadequate and inappropriate response of the management to this. While it is true that after two cold nights spent shivering in the apartment we were then offered alternative accommodation, this was only prompted by our telephone call asking what was happening (and only then being told that the problem could not be fixed) so we should move. We were then told the number of the unit to which we should transfer, although up to that point the heating had not been put on in that unit, and no help was offered to move all our belongings on a cold wet night, involving numerous steps than can be a challenge for this 77 year-old at the best of times. We therefore chose to transfer only our overnight things, packing the car the following day for a foreshortened holiday. Adding insult to injury, on departure the reception staff initially presented us with their standard electricity bill for the period of our stay (apparently the individual units are not metered). - even though without heating we must have used very little. Thus despite the idyllic position and views, we will not be returning to Loch Rannoch Highland Club.

Review No: 43 by Mrs Somers who stayed here on 24/02/2018 Language Flag

The lodges are desperately in need of updating, especially the kitchen (weird central unit with far too many cupboards). The raised floor separating the living area could be a H&S hazard. We felt the heating to be inadequate for the size of the Lodge though admittedly we were there in extremely cold weather conditions. the bathrooms would certainly benefit from underfloor heating. We were disturbed by an odd banging sound (possibly of metal hitting another hard surface), audible particularly on the ground floor and particularly noticeable at night. It may have been something loose banging in the wind but worth investigating. Unlike the properties at Melfort (where we own) there was a lack of basics in the kitchen - cling film, aluminium foil, salt and pepper et al. The above notwithstanding we really enjoyed our stay at Loch Rannoch and the location and scenery are spectacular.

This was our fourth time in Kinloch Rannoch and this way by far the best apartment we have stayed in, lots of room and very comfortable and beautiful views from the enclosed balcony.

Review No: 45 by Mr Main who stayed here on 17/02/2018 Language Flag

We had a lovely week at Kinloch Rannoch and unbeleavably sunshine and blue skies which made the snow topped mountain view superb and the balcony a sun trapp.The lodge had just been refurbished to a high standard and made the holiday very special . Staff were cheery and helpful as were owners we spoke to.Hope to do this again. Nancy

Review No: 46 by Ms Sloan who stayed here on 15/02/2018 Language Flag

Lovely scenic area for a family break with lots of good walks about for dogs. The nearby village of Kinloch Rannoch has a well stocked Post Office for the oddities you always forget and the Riverbank Café is very dog friendly.....with great scones too! We also managed to get a dinner reservation at The Dunalastair Hotel which was most enjoyable. We found the whole area was full of very friendly and helpful people who all helped making this a relaxing break..... We had lovely views from the apartment over the loch to the snowcapped mountains beyond and it was super to sit in the conservatory with a coffee and relax. Would love to go back another time.

Review No: 47 by Mr Hoyle who stayed here on 03/02/2018 Language Flag

We have had an excellent week at this resort. The apartment we had there was excellent and the view from it was superb although we did have to climb 77 steps with our suitcases in order to get to ours. Our appartment was definitely not one for the very elderly or disabled although lower down ones would probably be acceptable. A car is a must for this resort The only criticism I have is that our appartment was freezing upon our arrival and took a long time to warm up. There was no heating on ( housekeeping could have put it on for a while before our arrival) and little if anything in the instructions to point us to some of the heating appliances. That being said we worked things out for ourselves although we did spend a cold first night. There is now a fixed charge for electricity which we only found out about from another guest. The house manual was still saying you paid for what you used.

Review No: 48 by Mr Whapplington who stayed here on 27/01/2018 Language Flag

First impressions are important. We arrived early because we didn’t wish to be driving the 18 miles from the A9 late afternoon in January on roads that could be covered in snow and ice. Upon arrival, we were told that we would have to wait until the 5 pm booking in time. It was claimed this was because of health and safety. When we were given access to our unit, we discovered the heating was switched off, and therefore was extremely cold. We also discovered the bedroom was a 6ft x 6ft “cupboard” with a bunk bed and no other furniture. This should no way have been described as a one bedroomed apartment. It was a studio apartment with somewhere to accommodate a couple of children. I tried to obtain another apartment without success. I was told it may be possible to move the following day, but having spent 24 hours in the apartment we decided we didn’t want the hassle of moving, so did not pursue this option. The kettle did not work. It took over 2 hours for someone to arrive to sort out. The person arrived without a replacement and having examined the dud kettle had to then go and obtain a replacement. The utility charge at the end of the week was over £36. We moved from this resort to spend a second week at another Scottish resort, and the utility charge at the second resort was £14.75. We did stay one day less at the second resort, but I still believe the charge of £36+ for a weeks electricity excessive.

What can I say from driving through the village to arriving at our Lochside Lodge No: 5 and walking through the front door it was beautiful. The lodge was great home from home and very cosy, the rooms and décor were lovely and the view what can I say amazing. We never needed to go out unless it was to walk the dog's that loved every minute of it to from sitting out on the balcony's to going for long walks in the fresh air. Will be coming back again hopefully this year. staff in the reception and even the local shop and villager's all so friendly and welcoming. The view's were amazing. Thank You Gail Kemp

We last visited this resort in March 2006 and were uneasy before our arrival about the quality of the apartment. These concerns were answered as soon as we opened the door to apartment No. 42. This is one of the 2 bedroom refurbished apartments – magnificent! The superbly equipped lounge/kitchen/dining room on the upper level overlooks Loch Rannoch. Everything was modern and we wanted for nothing with the exception of a washing machine and dryer. Guests must use an on-site laundrette to wash clothes - £1 for a wash and £1 for 30 minutes drying time. Bring your own detergent. Sky TV provided plenty of entertainment channels but there was healthy competition from the traditional games available in the lodge. Heating is from wall mounted electric powered individually controlled units in addition to a Dimplex cabinet blower type in the lounge. There is also underfloor heating in the bathrooms which was appreciated during our stay because the ourside temperature rarely exceeded 3C. The weekly electricity bill when we stayed was £49. We only used the double bedroom – super king size with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space provided. An adequate supply of bath and hand towels was provided. We had one maintenance issue which was reported to the office and resolved during the day – very efficient service. The on-site team worked tirelessly to salt the roads and paths and remove snow and ice that accumulated overnight. Free and very reliable W-Fi was available in the lodge. This was a very relaxing break which may not appeal to those wanting excitement – we didn’t. I enjoyed the single malt tasting session that was hosted by Tommy – a tee-teetotaller who really knew his malts and enthusiastically explained the origins and flavours of the Scotches we sampled. Free entertainment and education has never been more enjoyable. We enjoyed this great vacation and hope an opportunity to stay again in winter arises again.

The studio has a fantastic view of the loch very relaxing but getting the studio warm and cosy is not easy as there is only one heater at the other end of the room . The studio has everything you need and of very good standard . Lots of walks around the area we were there when snow was on the ground quite magical . The fridge freezer was of a good size easily get a full weeks shop . Very pleased with our week .

Our studio was well equipped and very cosy for a January visit. The views across the Loch are wonderful and for those who like to get outdoors, then it is a wonderful venue for walks. We took a train from Rannoch to FortWilliam, then to Mallaig. The scenery was amazing. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this as a holiday destination.

The Highland Club is completely separate from the adjacent Macdonalds Hotel. They used to be under the same ownership but I get the distinct impression that the split was less than amicable. The hotel is open to the public of course, but guests at the Highland Club are not allowed to use their leisure club and pool - not even for a fee. The reception for the Highland Club is down in the village - almost a mile away from the accommodation. A simple desk in the hotel would have been far more useful and welcoming. That said, we were upgraded from a one bedroom to a two bedroom unit as they were refurbishing the one we had originally booked. All units have a lovely view of Loch Rannoch and Schiehallion beyond. It's a remote area - just one village store and one very nice cafe - and it's excellent for walkers and hikers, but nothing else. MacGregor's Cave was our favourite walk and it's not too difficult or too long. Craig Varr, which overlooks the village of Kinloch Rannoch, and Schiehallion (a Munro) are for the slightly more adventurous. It's worth taking a trip to Rannoch Station where some of the Harry Potter scenes were filmed, even in winter when the famous tiny cafe is closed - there is a courtesy tea/coffee service and a small visitor centre. Mid-afternoon one of the locals feeds the deer and birds, who all come flocking for their regular treats. There is a real sense of remoteness on Rannoch Moor.

Fine place even in dead of winter though the lodge was difficult to heat - needed heaters on all the time and electricity bill around £60 for a 2 bed unit. Excellent place for retired couple to relax and do very little! And winter snow scenery extremely beautiful.

My daughters and I (plus dog) enjoyed a fabulous week at Loch Rannoch, a stunning and peaceful location with amazing views. The apartment (Otter 4) was clean, well-equipped and very cosy despite the freezing temperatures outside. There were several steep steps which wasnt an issue for us but might have been a problem for those with reduced mobility and heavy bags. It snowed heavily on our first night but the maintenance staff cleared the snow from paths, car parks etc first thing so it wasn't an issue. We enjoyed some of the free activities - the excellent guided walk with Steve through the Black Forest of Rannoch and the very convivial and informative whisky tasting with Tommy - although the Clan Night was cancelled due to lack of numbers. We also did lots of local walks and visited Pitlochry and Aberfeldy. Only suggestion to add is maybe providing maps/info of local walks as we found many weren't signposted and hard to find. Will definitely return!

We were due to arrive on 26th but had not been informed office was closed, despite contacting resort about high chair etc. We were lucky to find a helpful lady who took us up to lodge lodge which was left opened for us! Loved the lodge and also the new Dunalister Hotel for lunch.

Review No: 60 by Mr Hughes who stayed here on 09/12/2017 Language Flag

Unfortunately, my request for the heating to be put on for us before we arrived was not done and resulted in a very cold first night especially as the temperatures outside were up to minus 5 degrees. As the unit did not appear to have been used before us it took a long time to warm the unit up. In December this is unacceptable. Having said this, this was a lovely unit and we had a very pleasant holiday. It would be nice to return in the spring or autumn.

Review No: 61 by Mr Groome who stayed here on 02/12/2017 Language Flag

Set in a beautiful location on the shore of Loch Rannoch, most of the lodges have panoramic loch views. If you want a quiet holiday, this is for you, magnificent scenery and lots of walks; but you should have a car, the nearest towns like Pitlochry and Aberfeldy are 20 miles away. There is a local taxi service. Interestingly, there is a train service from London Euston to Rannoch Station, including even a sleeper service, but bear in mind that Rannoch Station is 15 miles from the lodges! There are no leisure facilities available to you on site and this is not really suitable for young children. The Highland Club do lay on some good free activities including whisky tasting and water colour painting, and there is a games table (Cards, draughts etc) in every lodge. The lodges are well appointed and warm, but we found the beds very hard. Resort is hilly, so many lodges are not suitable for disabled access (though some are). We were there in the snow and the resort staff gritted all the paths and roads by 8.30 am, very impressive.Local shop is 1 mile away and very good. It opens at 8.00 am and the best fresh bread is gone in 10 mins!!

Lochside 5 cabin was right on the loch. We had 2 balconies; one off our bedroom and one off our living room. We went to sleep to the sound of the loch waves. The bedrooms, bathrooms and sauna are on the ground floor. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room. Fantastic lodge. Artwork was Ursula's. Ursula delivers a free art class on Tuesday afternoons. Staff also provide a clan night on Mondays where we are taught how to dress like a highlander and learn about the weapons used. Wednesday evening is whisky tasting. We're given 7 double whiskys to enjoy over 2 hours in the company of our fellow holiday makers. All these activities are provided FREE and all are well worth attending. When you're not enjoying your cabin or attending events, there's the fantastic scenery surrounding you to enjoy. Tay Forest, Schiehallion, Loch Rannock... As well as the natural beauty, there are many delightful villages to visit requiring driving on picturesque roads. Pitlochry is the nearest town - many delis and interesting shops. Aberfeldy is a delightful town with The Aberfeldy Distillery, The Birks, a cinema, a Co Op and many eateries. For a touch of quality, treat yourself to a visit to the House of Bruer and a walk up the Bruer Falls. A beautiful part of Scotland all year round.

Lovely place - they are refurbishing steadily but though my studio hadn't been done yet not much was wrong. The staff are very good and the people who do the extra activities were really great - can recommend the Clan Night and also the guided walk which takes you to places you probably wouldn't go to without a guide - warning, it is a real walk so you do need good walking shoes/boots, but we got a lovely walk and a lot of information, both about the natural aspects and the history. There's not a lot in the village, but facilities are adequate.

A lovely resort in a beautiful setting.My wife and I were in Highland Lodge No 41.We found the accommodation very spacious and ideal for a self catering holiday. However this accommodation is not suitable for anybody with mobility problems ,there are a number of steps to contend with. The only complaint we had with No 41 was the downstairs area, which had a damp and musty smell. No amount of air freshener or deodorant spray could improve the situation. We put it down to a lack of regular heating when unoccupied or its position as it is built into the hillside. That said we would definitely recommend The Loch Rannoch Highland Club as a holiday resort.

An excellent resort. Accommodation in idyllic setting with stunning views from our balcony. Ideal walking country. I missed the swimming pool which was only accessible for hotel guests. Last time I came here over 20 years ago, the pool was available to resort guests. The resort is also ideal for visiting many places of interest in the area. We enjoyed the train journey from Rannoch Station to Fort William. I would recommend this resort for anyone looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of out country.

Review No: 69 by Mr Babayode who stayed here on 21/10/2017 Language Flag

The resort had very good views of the water which enhanced the view from the lodge. While, I was informed about the need to provide my own vehicle, the staff were not able to provide accurate details of the buses that passed nearby. Also, I was not given the full information that was available regarding the weekly events. This should have been passed to all members from the outset. Apart from that the resort was ok and would benefit from having televisions in all the bedrooms which I have experienced at other resorts.

Review No: 70 by Mr Byram who stayed here on 05/10/2017 Language Flag

This was our second week and we stayed in a Red Squirrel unit with two bedrooms. We had a conservatory overlooking the grounds at first floor level and a patio outside the downstairs bedroom which would have been lovely in summer, but not this time of year! The resort is lovely and the surrounding scenery spectacular. The only thing missing is a central club room. The Welcome meeting is held in the Village Hall in Kinloch Rannoch and there is no bar/restaurant belonging to the Timeshare on site, The MacDonald Hotel which is next door is excellent, but expensive (their Cullen Skink is delicious) so only used for a treat! We thoroughly enjoyed the "Clan Night" during our first week and would have attended the second week, but it was cancelled as were both whisky tastings (much to our disappointment!).

Review No: 71 by Mrs Wood who stayed here on 05/10/2017 Language Flag

After reading some reviews, we were pleasantly surprised at what we found. Overall we would recommend people to try the resort. One thing that is on the negative, is the distance from the club to get to a major town, village. Be sure to take your own supplies as there is only one small shop near to the resort.

Review No: 72 by Mrs Thomas who stayed here on 29/09/2017 Language Flag

There are only two disadvantages to this otherwise beautifully located and equipped resort - It's a long way from main roads if you're a bit nervous of narrow, sometimes almost single track, roads and it is built on a hillside so most units involve a fair number of steps and sometimes an interestingly slopeing space to park in! That said it didn't bother us, and if you like peace and quiet, surrounded by wildlife and with a view to die for from your balcony ( fully enclosed to protect you from the worst of the weather ) this is an idyllic place for a restful break.

We stayed in Pine Marten 4 and were very impressed with this one bed unit. Nice and warm, all mod cons and a great conservatory. The only minus point for this resort is its lack of a "centre". There is no bar or restaurant onsite and even the staff are based in the nearby Kinloch Rannoch. Staff are excellent and arrange various events, but would be nice to have somewhere to eat/drink and meet other visitors.

Review No: 75 by Mr Waugh who stayed here on 23/09/2017 Language Flag

Had a very enjoyable week in this well situated unit in Kinloch Rannoch. Good area for walking. Unit was well laid out with two bedrooms (one en suite) and a separate bathroom with sauna. Large kitchen, dining and living room area with large covered patio/conservatory off (and very good views across the loch). Our particular unit had a fair number of stairs to access the front door, and the unit itself was on two levels - but other units were on a single level and had street level access. Mid-week cleaning available for a charge, but broom cupboard had a hoover and other items that allowed us to look after it ourselves. Towels/bed linen changed by delivering the used ones to housekeeping. A coin-operated laundry if you want/need to keep on top of your own laundry. Good wifi in the unit, and sky TV. Would happily come here again.

A very enjoyable week in an apartment overlooking Loch Rannoch with stunning views. The apartment has a lovely balcony/small conservatory in a sunny position which overlooks the loch. There is every modern facility in the apartment that you would possibly need for a relaxing week's stay. I would recommend this resort and apartment to anyone.

Attractive area with lots of good walks including an excellent guided walk organised from the resort led by a very knowledgeable guide. The walks at Carie on the South side of the loch are well marked and have a car park. We attended an interesting and informative "Clan night" at the resort that included demonstrations about kilt folding and historic weapons. Unfortunately, the usual Whisky tasting was not available. The towns of Aberfeldy (first fairtrade town in Scotland) and Pitlochry are not to be missed and provided opportunities for whisky tasting. Both towns have Co-ops with a good range. The food at both the Hydro visitor centre and Loch Rannoch station was good. The Co-op at Aberfeldy also sells Petrol.

Review No: 78 by Ms Long who stayed here on 21/09/2017 Language Flag

This was our first DAE exchange and we were very pleased - especially as we were able to take all 4 of our well behaved dogs with us. The views from our Lodge (Otter 3) were fabulous... even on grey and rainy days. It was lovely to sit in the warm 'conservatory' area and just relax and look out over the loch. It was wet and mizzly for most of our week so we were very glad to have the electric heating which worked well and was a joy to come back to after a wet ramble. The kitchen was especially well equipped and the kitchen knives sharp! A first for us as we always take our favorite kitchen implements with us. This time we didn't have to use them. We were impressed to find washing up liquid, towels, paper towels and lots of other useful supplies which we've always had to go out and buy elsewhere. We stocked up on supplies at the Co-op in Crieff on our way up country and dined in every evening so can't comment on the local hostelries. The furniture and decor was fine for us with ample space. Yes a few items looked a little worn, but nothing different from at home and it was spacious, clean, cosy and welcoming. We had a car parking space next to the woodland walk which meant we would walk and poop our dogs with minimum disruption to other guests. We particularity enjoyed the 3 hour watercolour evening led by artist and staff member Ursula. We even brought our masterpieces home with us. We missed the Clan evening but heard it was great fun and passed on the whisky tasting as spirits are not our thing. Apparently it's pretty good too. Rebecca in the Club Office kindly arranged riding for me with local instructor Andy McNab and I had a most enjoyable and informative 2 hours hacking out with him along the loch side. Overall a great and much needed holiday break and we will come back again.

The resort is very good with beautiful views over Loch Rannoch, it is very remote and the road to the nearest town of Pitlochry is quite long at 20 miles, this road has to be negotiated each time you decide to travel anywhere.

The unit (Pine Martin 2) was cosy and warm although some of the decor seemed a bit dated now. The view over the Loch was stunning. The roof leaked a bit in conservatory. The resorts organised events like Clan night and the local woodland walk were excellent. We would love to go back one day!

Review No: 82 by Mrs Allsop who stayed here on 31/08/2017 Language Flag

This resort is certainly in a beautiful location although rather isolated. It does lack a central hub e.g. a bar or coffee shop could provide all the information for the area and be a good place to meet and chat to other people staying at the resort. The road in and out is long (13 miles) and requires concentration to avoid the logging lorries which will rearrange your wing mirrors if you are not careful! 30-40mph is absolute max speed if you want to be safe. Bed very comfortable. Lots of hot water. View amazing. Did not appreciate being charged separately for our electricity, our bill was only £17 for our week and we didn't use the sauna, nor needed any heating as weather was mild. As first time visitors on an exchange, the information meeting on Sunday was too late as we had been there since Thursday. It was all about the owners issues and we were not interested in all their problems. Maybe there should be two meetings?

We were allocated RedSquirrel 4 which was beautifully appointed with a complete set of everything needed for a week's stay of self-catering. The view from the conservatory was wonderful with Loch Rannoch below and heather covered hills behind it. We enjoyed a guided walk hosted by Steve whose knowledge of the area and its history were impressive. The Village Shop was well stocked at reasonable prices for such a remote spot. The only drawback was the drive from Pitlochry to Kinloch Rannoch - a well-surfaced but extremely twisting and, in places, narrow road. We used this road on 3 occasions each time with trepidation, however being able to attend the Highland Games at Birnam was a highlight of the holiday. The Loch Rannoch Highland Club is a holiday to treasure.

This was not our first visit to this site. The location is stunning as ever and you could not ask for more in that respect. We understood from the meet and greet that all the units across the site are going through an upgrade. Unfortunately the unit we stayed in had yet to be done and perhaps looked a little tired though quite honestly it was perfectly acceptable and didn't detract in any way from our enjoyment. When we last visited Loch Rannoch in 2007 there was a pub and a "community" restaurant. Sadly both have now gone and there are no reasonably priced restaurants, or pubs, on the doorstep. You have to travel about 20 miles to find such facilities. The LRHC are doing every thing they can to boost the site and are extremely helpful in all respects and will provide details of those who can provide transport, at a reasonable price, to and from the nearby towns/restaurants/pubs. If you stay at this site you must go on the West Highland train from Rannoch station to Fort WIlliam/Mallaig, quite simply it is the most stunning scenery you are ever likely to see.

Loved the Kinloch Rannoch Highland Club. Brilliant location ideally suited for our plans walking, exploring the area and Munros. Amazing, stunning view over the Loch through a full width patio door & fabulous conservatory. Excellent resort staffed by friendly helpful people. Good attention to detail and excellent responses to maintenance issues. Wonderful area with great walking and surrounding towns and villages. Excellent tourist information services, rural dial-a-ride bus/taxi services. Great access to Scot Rail train services and a raft of high quality cafes & restaurants. Wonderful theatre at Pitlochry and galleries, forest walks. We’ll return definitely.

The accommodation we were allocated was at the top of the resort so there were quite a few steps to engage to get to our apartment (deer 4). The introduction meeting on Sunday morning explained that the site was under a long term modernisation plan, clearly our apartment was in the queue. Although dated, the furniture and appliances were functional and the bedding and upholstery was clean but again was nearing the end of it's tenure. The setting at the side of Loch Rannoch was spectacular although remote and a car is essential as the Highland club is almost at the end of the line. We ventured out every day as there is little to do on site, no pool or family entertainment, although we did take advantage of a guided wooden walk which was interesting. I would encourage anyone visiting this area any time of the year to prepare for rain and then more rain. Landscapes like the Highlands and Lochs are there because they get plenty of the wet stuff. Through recommendation we took the train from Rannoch station, used in the Harry Potter films, to Fortwilliam and then onto Mallaig, where a boats sail to Skye and the Western Isles. The daily return train journey to Mallaig will cost around £52 for a family of 4 with a railcard, however if you decide to take the steam engine from Fortwilliam to Mallaig the cost is considerably higher. The scenery from the train is spectacular, especially when the line traverses the Glenfinnan viaduct. Along the route and around Rannoch station in particular you will see red deer and buzzards. We also visited Glencoe and saw a pair of Golden eagles and were fortunate enough to spot a red squirrel in the grounds of the highland club. Pitlochry and Aberfeldy are each 18 miles away offering a lot of shops offering the usual tourist fayre. Our last day was spent in Blair Atholl a pretty village with a huge white walled castle. Close by is the house of Bruar shopping experience and the magnificent Bruar falls.

Beautiful place and location. Be warned though its about 20m miles to nearest town of Pitlochrie and 20m back. There is a small shop in Kinloch Rannoch for basics , otherwise do a big shop on way there. There are two hotels nearby , good food , great for special meal , they do bar lunches, but quite expensive. we thought Macdonalds Hotel very nice. Well worth attending Loch Rannochs special events laid on for guests ie whisky tasting, clan nights ,guided walks and watercolour classes all free.

This is a remote, beautiful and peaceful location. We stayed in a unit was located high up at the far end of the resort, its picture windows and balcony giving fabulous, ever-changing views to Loch Rannoch and Schiehallion. The unit was light and airy and had been recently refurbished to a high standard. Our dog loved to sleep on the covered balcony, which also provided a comfortable place for us all to sit and enjoy the changeable Scottish weather. It is a great place for a relaxing holiday but not recommended as a touring base for the surrounding Highlands as the access roads are slow and winding and the main A9 is half an hour away and the nearest towns of Pitlochry and Dunkeld about 40 minutes driving. The site is hilly with steep steps and would not be suitable for those with mobility problems. The local village has a convenience store, a couple of hotel restaurants and an excellent, very dog-friendly cafe.

A very well fitted out, if a little dated, apartment with amazing views of Loch Rannoch from the enclosed second floor conservatory. The pull-down bed was ok if creaky to sleep in.Bed-side light and table would be useful. The entry stairs were steep and slightly scruffy with the smell of smoking at times. The location is great with lovely scenery and lots of walks close by. Having the Macdonald Hotel next door is very useful as the food was good although the service was erratic at times. It's a shame that the hotel swimming pool/gym building is not available for Highland Club users,and I noted from the visitors' book comments that it did used to be available. The scenery, quiet and fresh air make this a great place to visit.

Second visit this year and an even better apartment than last time. The weather was pretty awful (whereas it was fantastic a month ago - but such is Scotland!) but the apartment had such a lovely outlook that it was a pleasure to sit in the sun porch, in comfort, with a book regardless of the weather. LRHC has the advantage of absolute peace and quiet while being only a short drive away from the more gregarious tourist activities. Yet one doesn't spend downtime in Scotland without being prepared for all activities (and all seasons!) so, with the right gear and the right planning, there are endless outdoor activities to pursue - the limit being only one's own imagination (or lack of) and inertia. We spent the time sailing, walking, bird-watching, visiting gardens and attending concerts. We had a great time and LRHC was a great base for this. Still more to do so we'll be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Loch Rannoch and can't praise the Staff, accommodation, area and welcome we received everywhere we went enough. Although not newly built the unit was fitted out to a high standard and contained everything a family might possibly require for a weeks stay no matter the weather. The view from our unit of the Loch was breathtaking and we loved sitting in the conservatory and out on the balcony with our coffee soaking in the peace and tranquility. We enjoyed our stay so much we've already put in a request to stay here again next year.

This was our first visit to the Loch Ranoch Highland Club. The local scenery is stupendous and there are many local walks. Don't expect many local facilities however since the nearest town is 20 miles away, although the local shop is quite good for the basics and a few luxuries. The hotel on site and the one in the village are very good but expensive. Internet connection was good but speed very poor while we were there.

Access might be a bit difficult for those with mobility issues - lots of steps, no lift access but otherwise a good billet. Local facilities were a bit basic and sparse and to get to anywhere of interest or for touristic facilities requires a 30 minute drive (Blair Atholl. Aberfeldy, Pitlochry) but if you're into walking or fishing and splendid isolation this location will be just fine. Local shops consisted of one village store whilst local hotels - the MacDonalds original club headquarters and one other in the village provided restaurant/bar meals for non-residents. Beware of Edina's Kitchen though - it was ludicrously expensive for small portion meals that were more about presentation than content - if your idea of an evening out for £100 per couple that leaves you feeling hungry then you'll be impressed by the posh ambience and the fixed price two/three course options (£29 pp or £34 pp) menu. Mind you most of the options for each course required a £6 supplement so don't be fooled! We only stayed for 4 days as the weather forecast was poor and we were fed up with needing to drive miles and miles and inevitably meeting stray sheep or logging lorries along narrow, twisting and undulating roads. However, we were impressed that the roads, whilst tricky, were well maintained with only a very few potholes. Overall it was worth the visit but rather too isolated for us.

A stunning location. Red Squirrel 6, like every other unit on site offers an amazing view over Loch Rannoch to Schiehallion. The very comfortable unit is very well equipped and beautifully presented with the added luxury of a conservatory from which you have a 180 degree vista of the loch and mountains. The village of Kinloch Rannoch is a mere 10 minute walk away where a delightful cafe awaits, ready to serve tasty scones and cakes as well as hearty lunches. The only disadvantage to this venue is the 40 minute drive from the A9 along narrow, winding roads.

An aged resort but well maintained and kept very clean.Fantastic location,amazing views,but a bit of a shame about the lack of activities,especially on the waterside.Office staff very helpful with ideas of things to do.

Hadn't been here for quite a few years and it was a pleasant surprise to be reminded of 'traditional' furnishings i.e. comfortable wing armchairs and solid ply-and-veneer cupboards. The quality of the housekeeping was first-rate - everything spotless and well organised; all the kitchen equipment one could wish for - and all in excellent condition; a fabulous view over the loch through spotless windows (except for the little 'presents' left by the small birds arriving for their anticipated snacks!) and a very comfortable apartment overall. Some of the cupboarding (i.e. the 'drinks cabinet - a drinks cabinet, for goodness sake!) is real period 1970s stuff - which time-travelled me back to my parents' house. I don't mean this as a criticism, rather just highlighting a curiousity: a drinks cabinet with cut-glass, wine tools and glasses much larger than it needs to be to hold the contents and a mirror-back drop-front which weighs a ton - very 70s! If there is a criticism of this then it would be that this takes up space which could have been occupied by ---- what? There is already plenty of storage and if this were a Med timeshare unit it would be replaced by flimsy chipboard in a cheap resort or some equally heavyweight rubberwood monstrosity in a 'premium' resort: so I'll stick with the 70s. But I do have two, minor, criticisms which might be more important to other guests: first, wi-fi, very variable and completely inconsistent; annoying if you want to check travel arrangements such as flights or the weather (which, being Perthshire is pretty variable and inconsistent itself); second, TV, back to the 70s again with really not much more than the main channels, a few Freeview (OK, not the 70s then!) and a Sky box but no Sky. From my point of view, both these criticisms would be pretty irrelevant though - nice to be away from the tyranny of the internet (and the phone signal is fine in any case for internet access) and who needs a TV anyway? Use the games table!

Review No: 109 by Mr Scott who stayed here on 29/04/2017 Language Flag

Loch Rannoch is situated in a beautiful part of the Highlands and the accommodation we had was ideally placed on the foreshore. The surrounding area affords the opportunity for lots of day trips and walking. Our house was one that has not been upgraded yet and therefore it was a little old fashioned but all the facilities were good and nicely clean. The only criticism is that the wi-fi signal is at best unreliable. Loch Rannoch Highland Club is not a Resort - there are no facilities such as a swimming pool, restaurant or bar, although these are available at the hotel on site but not free to use. Bizarrely the hotel is not connected with the club in any way. The village of Kinloch Rannoch is within easy walking distance but only has a local convenience store and an excellent cafe that is open to 5pm every day except Monday. A new hotel has just been opened but it appears to be very expensive and exclusive. It would have been great to visit a local pub! There are lots of places for dinner in the area but they are all at least a 20 minute drive away. Trips that we took and can recommend are: Take a train from Rannoch Station (18 miles away) to Fort William and then get a river cruise; visit Blair Castle - walk the gardens and view the house and lunch in the cafe; visit the town of Pitlochry for shopping, lunch or dinner, and pay a visit to the dam and view the fish ladder and watch the salmon jumping up river; visit the Skyspace on the Craiganour Estate (ask locally for directions as there are no sign posts); or just drive around the many country roads with views of the various lochs. We highly recommend a visit to this area of Scotland - the scenery is magnificent and the people are very friendly. A great spring or autumn holiday destination.

Review No: 111 by Mr West who stayed here on 22/04/2017 Language Flag

Lochside 7 was larger than we expected from the photos, though not ideal for more than two people. The bunk beds were intended for children rather than adults. Well equipped kitchen, and not especially cramped. Great views over Loch Rannoch, and probably better than you would get from the apartments further along the road by the hotel. Very good local shop for most supplies. Local roads generally quiet, though some large vehicles can be encountered when logging is in progress, but not an area that you want to drive through quickly so not a big issue. Definitely somewhere we will return. Loved it.

Review No: 112 by Mrs Dean who stayed here on 22/04/2017 Language Flag

We had a great holiday, despite the chilly weather. The resort is one of our favourites and the newish manager seems to be very organised and "on the ball". The apartment, Highland Lodge 36, was large and clean and well equipped but rather cold. However, it was the end of April and since we were out most of the time we didn't turn the heating on much. The views were spectacular. There are a lot of steps to climb for some of the apartments so when exchanging one has to be aware of this, especially if you have mobility problems. Ask for one that is more on the level. Laundry facilities are quite adequate and very reasonably priced. We went on the organised weekly walk, the Clan night talk and demonstration and the whisky tasting afternoon. All three were excellent and amazingly they were free. We would highly recommend all three. Up to the first weekend in May there was nowhere to have an evening meal within walking distance of the apartment unless you used the hotel which is no longer part of the time share. From 1st May 2017 we understand that the village hotel is opening and evening meals will be available. We had excellent evening meals at the Bridge of Gaur Guest House and at Rannoch Moor Hotel. Booking absolutely essential and keep your fingers crossed for availability! We also took advantage of the fish and chip van that parks in the village square on a Wednesday evening. There is now an "on demand" taxi service which will drive you anywhere up and down the loch for a very cheap £6 return. A great improvement on previous years. Ask at the office for the contact details. This was our fourth visit to Loch Rannoch Highland Club and we shall certainly be returning. We always have a super holiday, whatever the weather.

Review No: 113 by Mrs Spurgeon who stayed here on 22/04/2017 Language Flag

We exchanged for a 1 bed sleeps 4 which we wrongly assumed would be a bedroom with a proper bed and a sofa bed. Not so ! The 1 bedroom was very small with two kiddie sized bunk beds. That left the double sofa bed for us - both in our late 60's. Not the most comfortable ! And, which once pulled out (with some effort, so not something we wanted to do daily), left no room for the substantial coffee table or anything else. Having said that, the weather was great and we had a wonderful time actually sleeping reasonably well to the noise of the loch lapping at the shore just below us ..... The Apt is very well kitted out with every cooking utensil I usually try to avoid using when on holiday ! Local food shopping facilities are limited - closest substantial one being Aberfeldy or Pitlochry both about 30 mins drive so I suggest you stock up on daily essentials in a supermarket before arrival. An absolutely delightful spot which we were sad to leave and would gladly visit again ..... but would opt to avoid the sofa bed !

Our lodge at Loch Rannoch was undoubtedly the most comprehensively equipped exchanges we have ever been in. There was nothing missing from the equipment list that you might want or need. The lodge - we had a two bedroomed one - was spacious with a large living area where a foldaway bed was stored for parties of six. There was lots of room. The resort is undertaking an accelerated refurbishment programme to get all their accommodation up to standard. Sadly, we were in one of the lodges that hadn't yet been upgraded but nonetheless, we were exceedingly comfortable. When the lodge refurbishments are complete, there will, I'm sure, be no faults to be found at this resort. We viewed one of those lodges that had been refurbished and it was excellent. The location is stunning and sitting in the dayroom with views over the loch was just delightful. Highly recommended.

The unit was one bedroom for four people but it would have been a tight squeeze with four, but was ideal for a couple, it was warm and clean with the best views, I would visit again as it was lovely and peaceful, I would add that you definitely need a car when visiting.

We've stayed here a couple times and it is highly likely we'll be back. The units are comfortable and have great views. We normally use it as a base and head out to surrounding areas, but it is nice in itself and the clan night is worth making a point to attend. Mobile signal and even the resort wifi are a bit meagre, but if that is critical to you, then a destination other than the Highlands might suit better.

FOR: Sleeps 6, Good sized Bedrooms. Bedroom 1 with King Sized Bed. On suite with Sauna. Bedroom 2 with 2 single beds or zipped to make a double bedroom. Family bathroom. Bedroom 3 in the lounge consisted of a pull down bed from cabinet. Kitchen had everything you would require. Conservatory/ balcony overlooked the Loch and Mountains. Good for walks or cycling. Village shop well stocked and prices reasonable. Riverside Cafe served a cooked breakfast and sandwiches etc. AGAINST; Very inconsistent WIFI even after Router reboot. No amenities on site. Macdonald Hotel on site but not allowed to use the Swimming pool or Gym. Can use the restaurant but why would you want to when not allowed to use the other amenities at the hotel.

Property clean. Toilet didn't flush properly but general maintenance came out same day. Unable to solve problem. Bedding wasn't sufficient for this time of year. Duvet thick but not warm. No extra blankets (which used to be there). Only spoke to staff on arrival and departure. Excellent location if a little remote but suited us. No bar or any other facilities - only hotel which is separate to the Holiday resort.

Review No: 123 by Mrs O'Connell who stayed here on 23/03/2017 Language Flag

Had a lovely time overall :-) Could be better: - Wifi - this is advertised, but it doesn't work in the accommodation and it is VERY frustrating. Also, it is EASILY fixed with a range extender (we ordered one from Amazon and had it delivered during our holiday). For the sake of £10 - £12 per lodge it is unacceptable that this hasn't been done / provided and I would think it will stop people going. For example, I would consider booking and working from there, but I wouldn't be able to without this solution. It is also used in all advertising and at no point does it say 'might' or 'patchy'!! - Mattresses - desperately need replacing... did my back no good! - Washing machine facilities - payment system is nothing short of ridiculous! Had to pay £2 to open the machine before and after and £2 for the wash. Again, unacceptable in a resort of this quality and is easily remedied. Good points: - Location - will be too far out of the way for some people, but it is absolutely stunning. Loved every second! - Dogs - it was lovely to see so many dogs and they are very well catered for. There are plenty of poop bins and you certainly wouldn't know that dogs had been in the lodges. They do this very well and cleanliness overall was exceptional. Puts other resorts to shame on this front... ones that, rather annoyingly, do not allow dogs! It's a fantastic place and I would love to go back... so would the dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stayed in Highland 45, a 3 bed sleeps 8 unit. I had read the reviews about the steps to get to it and thought they were written by unfit OAPs but, crikey, there are indeed steep steps to get all your stuff in and out! The first night I had a terrible time with the unit next door being full of 8 adults who were there to party. The walls are paper thin and you could hear every single word being spoken. I spoke to the out of hours contact (Pete the Maintenance man) and was moved to a single unit. I could have quite happily stayed there but found out the noisy lot were only there for one night, thank goodness. After that it was a great stay. The 3 floors of the unit take quite a bit of getting used to. You always seem to forget something and it's a trek downstairs and back up the steep stairs in the unit. The views are fantastic. The facilities in the unit are great. Sky tv with basic package (and freeview in the Pine Martin units). i was there on my own and barely had the electric on. Didn't use the cooker etc. but was still £43 for the week. I will definitely go back but maybe not to the larger unit where it is cold and there is the possibility of a number of people next door. The standard of décor and furnishings is really great but the thickness of the walls is what should have been addressed. Climbed Schiehallion and went for walks in Carrie woods at the other side of the loch. Walked from Pitlochry to Killiecrankie. Birks of Aberfeldy is also a great short walk with waterfalls. Rannoch Station tearoom has the best home cooked high quality food. It's 18 miles from the unit but well worth it. I even bought take away cakes.

A really beautiful place to stay. Views of snow capped mountains and loch just amazing. The lodge was furnished with just about every kitchen gadget one could wish for. The sun lounge was huge.maybe a 2nd tv would be useful for larger families. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, staff very helpful and would certainly recommend it.

We wanted some chill - out time and that is exactly what we got!! Beautiful resort , the standards of furnishings and appliances were amazing, all you could need and more. Lovely to get up in the morning, sit in the 'conservatory' and watch the mist clear over the loch. Lots of walks, climbing, lovely places to visit. Just what we wanted - will definitely be back!!

The staff at the resort are all friendly, helpful and welcoming. Views from the lodge are superb, overlooking the loch, and we were fortunate to enjoy good weather. Facilities such as TV reception and WiFi are good , considering the remoteness of the location. An ideal resort for outdoor pursuits such as hiking/walking.

Review No: 128 by Mr Anderson who stayed here on 24/02/2017 Language Flag

There is a swimming pool/gym building available for the adjoining McDonalds Loch Rannoch Hotel residents. The Loch Rannoch Highland Club (all units) has no affiliation with the Hotel and Club/DAE members are therefore not able to use these facilities. Unsure why the Club cannot negotiate an agreement with the Hotel to use the facilities - even for a charge e.g. Ten Pounds per week. This has been the case since the Timeshare Units were bought by the Loch Rannoch Highland Club from McDonalds a few years ago. It seems a wasted opportunity for both companies concerned and a frustration for Club members - particularly for those with children. There are no alternative facilities anywhere nearby.

Review No: 129 by Mr Chapman who stayed here on 24/02/2017 Language Flag

Visit end of February 2017 The apartment (10) was on the second floor with a substantial climb up stairs to the entrance - so along with most of the other apartments and lodges it would be unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. The views across the Loch to the hills were stunning. The resort is some twenty miles(40 minutes drive) from the nearest town Pitlochry - so quite isolated and the roads leading to Loch Rannoch need care when driving. But perfect for a peaceful and quiet break. We joined the free guided 3 1/2 mile walk through Black Wood which was fabulous - but again not recommended for people with mobility issues. We did have some issues with a) lighting -wall light bulbs and standard lamp not working b) the electric oven was not easy to operate as digital display needs attention c) no kitchen scissors. We attended the "Welcome" meeting on Sunday and sat through a tortuous presentation by the General Manager giving a presentation on all the savings on electricity, liquid detergent feed on laundry equipment + other items which we felt were only of interest to actual owners - after the first hour we lost the will to live and left - having handed in our issues re APT 10 on the way out. It would have been helpful if they could have warned "Exchange" clients that this would be of little interest and we could leave before this business meeting for owners started! On leaving after our weeks stay no one had bothered to resolve the issues with the exception of the replacement light bulbs in the wall lamps. The cost of the electricity for the weeks stay was extortionate at £58 although it was reduced by £10 due to our complaints. Even so for a 1 bed apartment the cost was significant even though we had the heaters on low most of the time we were actually indoors.We live in a 5 bedroom 160 year old detached house and our average winter weeks fuel bill is less that £35 per week!

We had a lovely week in February. We stayed in lodge 44, having read earlier reviews I'm happy to say there are no issues with damp anymore. It's well laid out with excellent kitchen utensils, even a slow cooker! It could do with a little tlc though- squeaky door hinges and door handles. Reception and maintenance staff were great. Weather was variable but mainly dry. Had some snow mid week which made for pretty scenery. We managed some nice walks with our 2 year old in a back pack. Everywhere is so well maintained. We regularly went to tummel valley caravan park for the lounge bar, children's entertainment and pool. They were very welcoming. Loch Rannoch is very remote and we found the local store quite limited so be sure to bring at least food for your first night, we ended up with beans on toast! Asda delivery took care of the rest. Also had a couple of nice days in Pitlochry. We would probably return but it would be so much nicer if you could use the hotel pool, and the hotel bar and restaurant was very expensive. Also, we used the sauna one evening and the total cost for the week's electricity was £80! But we did have the heating on a lot. :)

Review No: 131 by Mrs Dick who stayed here on 04/02/2017 Language Flag

The biggest drawback of the Highland Lodge we stayed in was the 78 steps we had to climb to and from the car park. There was no means of unloading the car nearer the lodge and no alternative access. A kind member of staff helped carry our luggage when we arrived. As both ASDA and Tesco deliver to the resort that might be an alternative source of provisions, although their drivers might be equally unhappy with the climb. We did find that the accommodation, in February, was very cold. We ended up running the heating 24 hours a day to maintain the living space at a comfortable temperature, while tolerating cold bedrooms and bathrooms. The electricity charge was not, however, excessive. The kitchen was well equipped, but there didn't seem to be any interactions for the electrical equipment. Despite advertising wifi throughout there was a problem in our unit. I managed to log on once for two minutes before being dropped out again. Reading comments left by previous guests suggests that this is not an isolated incident. The resort runs a few interesting and free events during the week. This week there was an art class, a guided walk, and a whisky tasting to name but a few. There is a very good village shop, gallery and tea room as well as a bus from the resort to Pitlochry. Timetables are available in the office. There are quite a few attractive walks around the loch, although extensive logging means that some of the paths are rutted and muddy. Car parking is not always available at the start of the walks. We could not fault the resort staff at all. They were helpful and friendly at all times.

This is a stunning location and accommodation to match. If you like a quiet peaceful area with lots of opportunity to walk,photograph and enjoy small town living (Watermill at Aberfeldy) this is place for you. The weather in November has been really good every time we have visited and the view from all the lodges over the lake and towards Schiehallion (the fairy mountain of the Caledonians) is fantastic. Despite dog s being allowed the units are immaculate with up to date facilities including free wifi.

The one bedroom apartment was one of the most spacious we have ever visited. There was minimal noise from adjoining properties. The place was warm and comfortable. You do have to pay for electricity and the end of the stay but this is becoming more common in self catering properties. The equipment was amazing. There was nothing else we could have wanted for a self catering week. The views out over the loch and Scheihallion were amazing. All the staff we came into contact were friendly and helpful. Great walks from the lodge. We would certainly return.

The accommodation was nice with fine views across the loch we stayed late October 2016 and it was relatively mild however the cost of Electricity was crazy We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit and did not use the sauna at all the heating is all electric and uses modern Rionti heaters we set them to 20c in the lounge and 18c in the bedroom the electricity for the week was £82.00 Mainly because of the price they charge. Being an electrician I know they would have cheap rate at night however they do not pass this on we were charged 0.32p a day as a standing charge and over 16p a unit, if I paid that at home I would soon change supplier but I guess they just have a huge mark up!!

We've just got back from one of our best ever Exchange weeks ever at the Loch Rannoch Highland Club. Amazingly large and well appointed lodge at Highland Lodge 7, with the most wonderful views across the loch. We did some walking and cycling and joined in the terrific events organised by the club, including a memorable whisky tasting evening! We did think beforehand that we might miss not having a pool, but, in fact, with the wonderful weather and scenery, I'm not sure we would have had much time to make use of a pool. The unit was so well appointed and furnished that we found it hard to believe that it is scheduled soon for refurbishment!

Review No: 142 by Mr Haveron who stayed here on 08/10/2016 Language Flag

The Club is an excellent place to stay for adults wanting to chill out, relax and just do as little as possible. The Holiday Lodge 1 that we stayed in was very spacious and well equipped. We weren't sure about electricity costs, as the information supplied said it would be so much per unit etc, and could be costly. Actually, when we handed in our keys we were told that the cost was £4 per day, so we need not have worried. The views are exceptional, with the silence only being broken by the sound of deer stags bellowing in the background. This is not a great place for kids though, as there are no onsite facilities for them. We did go into the village quite a bit, to the play park, which the kids loved. However, this is determined by the weather. If the weather had been poor we would have had to travel quite a long way on very narrow and twisty roads to get to any decent entertainment for them. It is not the Club's fault that the neighbouring Hotel will not give access to their swimming pool and Gym for the Club quests. However, it would have been great to have access to the pool, even for a short period, it would have made all the difference for the kids, as the nearest public pool is some distance away! Club staff were very helpful and accommodating. We travelled round the area a little bit, and the scenery everywhere we went was spectacular.

Although an owner at Loch Rannoch we haven't been for years preferring to use DAE swap our week. So this week was a last minute bonus week and what a very pleasant surprise. We stayed in Otter2 which had a 'min-refurb' a few years ago. Otter2 is a one bed apartment and it's massive, spotlessly clean, has everything you require and has stunning views over the Loch. The Loch Rannoch Highland Club have really smartened up the whole resort, it certainly doesn't look around 40 years old. Yes, it's a wee bit isolated and, apart from the Hotel (which is owned by MacDonald Resorts and is separate from from LRHC), you need to travel to get to restaurants. However, you can visit Pitlochry, Aberfeldy & Rannoch Station which are all around 30/40 mins away. I'd thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Review No: 145 by Mrs Clark who stayed here on 29/09/2016 Language Flag

This resort is ideally situated for fit able bodied people but not suitable for families( nowhere to play outside) or the elderly and unfit as the access involves steps ++. A round trip to our apartment from the car involved 86 steps and we are fit and able but it would have been impossible for many of our contemporaries. The apartment itself was very clean, although smelt quite damp and was chilly when we arrived. Everything was in good working order and the staff were most helpful. But it is very dated (1980s) and in need of some thought re bedrooms and lighting. On the whole the experience was good but we would have reservations about exchanging our lovely house at Melfort for Loch Rannoch again.

To qualify the above, the staff were efficient and friendly whenever you met them on site. The resort is on a steep site overlooking Loch Rannoch and has stunning views! It is well maintained, though how they cut the grass is a mystery! If you are infirm it would be best to check with them first for ease of accessibility. There is no access to the gym/swimming pool as it is for the hotel guests only, I never saw anybody use it. The hotel is not part of the timeshare. Car parking is tight and challenging! The apt. was comfortable but the heating was by electric panel heaters, the views from the apt. are fabulous. Stairs and steps to access the apt., can't be avoided really.The appliances were OK but the vacuum cleaners provided were in need of attention, e.g.,filters, bags. An alarm clock would be useful in the bedrooms, cleanliness was OK but could do with more attention to detail, e.g. a thick layer of old grease round the hob. None of the above detracted from us having a lovely stay, the countryside in Autumn was just beginning to turn to reds, browns and yellows, we heard and saw rutting stags in the distance coming over from Trinafour in the yellow glow of the setting sun. Fantastic! Rannoch Station Tea room is worth a visit and if you are into walking their is plenty of walks of varying difficulties thereabouts. The more challenging has rewards of the beautiful countryside. The mountain, Schiehallion, dominates the glen and its vista changes by the minute.

This resort is situated at the side of a beautiful loch. The view is amazing. The apartment was beautifully furnished with a comfy bed. All the apartments have a conservatory too, which was lovely. I marked it down on the quality of appliances because they must have picked out the most difficult to use oven and dishwasher in the world, despite having the instructions there. Every thing was new though with every gadget you could think of. If you are considering going there, and you are old and crocky, check out which unit is being offered. Ours had a few steps up and down to the unit, some were a few steps from the road and others seemed to located halfway up the mountain. It does say in the information that it may not be suitable for guests with mobility problems though. Another bonus is that you can take dogs. The restaurant in the hotel on site was amazing too, although be sure to book. There is plenty to do in the area, especially if you like walking, with gorgeous scenery all around. It is about 20 miles from Pitlochry, the largest town nearby, which takes about 45 minutes, due to roads, We would definitely go back, maybe in October next year, when the Autumn is at its best. Lovely place, lovely apartment and lovely people. what more do you want ? Just the weather, as unfortunately it poured down all week.

A great break (although it always helps when you are lucky with the weather). The views from Highland Lodge 45 (sitting in the conservatory and admiring them) are superb, with the light over Shiehallion and Loch Rannoch constantly changing. The lodge is very well appointed and comfortable for a party of six. There is a drop down bed in the lounge area for two more and all the equipment is set up for eight. We did not use the sauna, partly because we were a bit worried about the electricity and partly because we never returned from an outing soaked and cold. You need to be reasonably fit to climb up and down the 57 steps from car to front door, and then further flights inside to get to the spacious kitchen, dining, lounge and conservatory area on the top floor. There are two bedrooms on the middle floor and one at the bottom (which does have a slight smell of damp from the space under the lodge). Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Our electricity for one week was £20, using only hot water, cooker and heated towel rails. Not unreasonable, we thought. Overall, well recommended.

Absolutely lovely apartment ( Lodge 47). Everything you need at your finger tips. Disappointed that there was no washing machine ( especially if you have been out walking and need to wash your clothes). Views were spectacular and couldn't ask for a more picturesque resort. Saw reviews about the charges for electric therefore was very cautious!!!. however weather wasn't great and could have done with some heating on - but was apprehensive. What would improve the overall ratings ( there have been several comments about this) - being able to use the leisure facilties of the hotel next door. What a pity!!!!!!! - this would have made such a difference especially when the weather was poor. Overall had a lovely time and will definately visit again

Osprey Lodge has recently been refurbished and is of a very high standard. 2 elderly ladies enjoyed a very pleasant stay. Small issues with TV, heater controls and sauna door were very quickly attended to. I have stayed at this lovely resort several times and am always happy to return. We took 2 of their suggested drives, around Loch Tay and to Inverness, both were very well worth doing as the weather was good and the scenery beautiful.

Resort and accommodation showing its age. Not enough money spent on maintenance e.g. external painting. Musty smell in bedrooms, which are below rather than above living areas. Also cold. Electric radiators only as no gas supply to accommodation. Sky TV available but very few channels violable. Split level between kitchen area and living area has high step which is dangerous. Resort on very steep hillside so not suitable for disabled. Nearest town/supermarket 20 miles away with no local shops. pubs etc. Surrounding area of Perthshire excellent - views of lakes and scenery - and view from accommodation excellent. Little information available e.g. on internet of local attractions but much available at resort when arrive

Review No: 156 by Mr Armstrong who stayed here on 27/08/2016 Language Flag

We were very disappointed with our stay at the Loch Rannoch Highland Club. Despite filling in and returning a pre arrival form with our requirements, our requests were all ignored. We asked for the water heater to be turned on before our arrival but when we got to the lodge the water was cold. It transpired that the timer didn't work or was disconnected and the only way to get hot water was to manually set the one hour boost. As my wife likes a bath in the morning, I had to get up at 6:00 each day to turn on the water heater. Despite reporting this to the resort and several visits from the maintenance staff they problem was not rectified. On entry to Lodge 35 the whole place smelt very musty and damp, so much so that we didn't unpack but lived out of our suitcases. Even so we have had to wash everything, even the clothes we didn't wear, when we arrived back home. The upshot of our stay was that we cut short our holiday and left on the Tuesday morning, having stayed only three nights.

Review No: 157 by Mr Winter who stayed here on 26/08/2016 Language Flag

Lovely lodge with beautiful views particularly when you are sitting in the sun terrace. The lodge was lovely and clean when we arrived. Fortunately the weather was sunny and very warm so we were able to do a lot of walking and sight-seeing but if the weather is inclement there is not a lot to do locally. It is a pity that the McDonald Hotel pool and gym facilities are not available for those staying in the lodges. My wife and I would certainly appreciate these facilities even if we had to pay a small token charge. However, we enjoyed a lovely week at Lock Rannoch Highland Club in a lovely lodge, helped by the glorious weather. We would certainly recommend the lodge to anyone.

Review No: 159 by Mrs Horner who stayed here on 11/08/2016 Language Flag

We exchanged a week and stayed for the first time at the Loch Rannoch in a 1bed apartment (No 2 Pine Marten) at this resort. Check in was quick and easy. Although the reception office was based off site (in the village) about a 1/4 mile from the resort this was not a problem as it was only a couple of minutes drive or an easy and pleasant 15 minute walk. The apartment smelled a bit musty and damp especially in the bedroom but no obvious signs of damp so it may only be that it had not been used for a while. The unit, whilst a bit tired looking, had everything you could possibly need for a self catering stay. The conservatory had sliding doors with waist high railings but no access to the outside space from there as we were on the first floor. However, the views from the first floor conservatory were beautiful and constantly changing depending on the weather conditions and time of day - we never tired looking at the view. As there was only the 2 of us the unit was a generous size (might be a little cramped for 4 with the pull out from wall bed in the combined open plan living cum dining room / kitchen). There were some organised activities at the resort but unfortunately due to sudden illness we did not participate. However another couple complained they were not informed when turning up to one of the events which was cancelled as not enough people had signed up and they had not been told - probably best to check with reception beforehand so that you can at least arrange to do something else. Overall a pleasant stay. Just a shame that anyone staying in the lodges can't use the Macdonald Hotel swimming pool facilities due to a long running and on-going dispute between the hotel owners and the timeshare folk. A pity because it would make such a difference between an ok and a great stay. Hopefully they can resolve this in the future for the benefit of all lodge guests.

Six of us, inclding 3 children, made the 440 mile car trip from mid-Wales and boy, was it worth it. The Resort's setting is superb, and our 3-bed Highland apartment had a great view over Loch Rannoch from the glassed-in conservatory fronting the living quarters. The accommodation is well-kitted out, both in the kitchen/lounge and the bedroom areas, and we lacked nothing. Even games and books are provided. We found the Resort staff, both permanent and contracted-in, all very friendly and helpful, and we had a great time taking part in the Highland Evening, the morning walk with Steve (very good) through the glens (and bogs!), and also at the Whisky Tasting. The Resort is not allowed to make use of the Hotel's facilities but I (together with my 9-year old granddaughter) was able to visit the Diamond Resort at Kenmore and make use of their swimming pool. All in all, Kinlochleven is well situated both for those who want a peaceful environment, and for others who wish to be more active and visit the many centres of interest within easy reach. The nearest town is Pitlochry, brim full of shops of all kinds. We DID visit the famous fish ladder but the time of year for the salmon run had passed. Not to worry....the cafes do a good trade, as do the souvenir shops. Queen's View was well worth the visit...the children loved scrambling about on the rocks overlooking the world-famous view. The Crannog Centre at Kenmore is also a good visit, especially for the children as it is hands-on. We also went further afield to the Highland Folk Museum at Kingussie...another good (and educational) day out for all. The village of Kinloch Rannoch boasts a well-stocked shop, and a travelling food van visits weekly. Our weather was mixed but didn't prevent us doing anything . Then, another 440 mile trip home,with many photos and happy memories of our time at the Highland Club. Thanks, DAE for the opportunity!

Accommodation more like a flat/ maisonette. The one we had was quite dark inside with no real direct access of sunlight as the accommodation was set into the hill. There was no place to sit outside. The two bedrooms were very cold despite being July. The fixtures and furnishings were variable in quality ranging from a red leather sofa, tartan wing chairs, woolen curtains with tartan pelmit, quality cutlelery , plates etc. Yet the beds were poor quality mattresses and the internal doors were poor quality and chipped. The towels and duvet covers could have been better. The brown carpet and duvet covers made the accommodation a tad drab. The setting was very beautiful

Review No: 166 by Mr & Mrs Moroney who stayed here on 02/07/2016 Language Flag

On our first visit to the Loch Rannoch Highland club, we were instantly given a visual treat by the beautiful scenery and location. Although it was an epic journey by vehicle to reach our destination, we were instantly lifted by both the accommodation and the location. The apartment was very spacious and tidy with everything needed to make our stay comfortable. Very minor areas of maintenance were needed in order to change it from above average to excellent such as small areas of internal damp which can easily be addressed. The furniture inside was very comfortable and in excellent condition, the beds also very comfortable and the kitchen contained plenty of accessories needed for when cooking. Although the weather was mixed, we were still able to get out and about on lots of walks taking advantage of the amazing location which is stunningly beautiful. The local towns/villages of Pitlochry, Aberfeldy and Denmore were interesting places to visit and the information/literature provided by staff on local events etc. was excellent. We would highly recommend the Loch Rannoch Highland club to anyone thinking of visiting this area of Scotland, in fact any area of Scotland in the future especially those who admire being outdoors surrounded by stunning scenery!

Stayed a week here at this remote resort which is excellent if you enjoy walking etc. We had our dog with us and she loved it too. We stayed in Studio 8 which was very spacious and well equipped. The pulldown bed was extremely comfortable and the conservatory area was excellent with spectacular views over the loch and Schehallion. We took supplies with us and ate in at night as, apart from the MacDonald Hotel on site who wanted to charge us £15 each time our dog visited, there is nowehere close by to eat out and we didn't want to drive 20 miles to the nearest restaurant. We visited Aberfeldy and Pitlochry, House of Bruar etc during the day which had many dog friendly places to eat and also the Riverside Café in the village was excellent. The weather unfortunately was not great that week but it didn't hold us back. Lovely place and would definitely go back again.

Review No: 168 by Mrs Worthington who stayed here on 24/06/2016 Language Flag

This was our first experience of using our option to swap our Timeshare and we were delighted with the location and accommodation. On arrival, the staff on Reception were immensely helpful, taking time to give us information on both the Resort and the surrounding area. Once James realised that we had a dog, he wasted no time in getting a "treat" for him and making a huge fuss of our Cockapoo, Bertie! We made our way to the Lodge (Red Deer 4) and were impressed by the size of the accommodation and were most surprised at the level of equipment provided in the kitchen, everything that we could possibly need during our stay. The beds, linen and towels were all of great quality and plentiful. We did, during our stay, have one minor problem with the TV but a call to Reception resulted in a very quick response from Maintenance and, in no time, the problem was rectified. The views from the Conservatory, directly overlooking the Loch, were absolutely stunning whether in bright sunlight or with cloud covering the tip of the Mountain - sublime. A couple of recommendations for a light lunch or snack would be The Riverbank Café in the village and the Tea Room at Rannoch Station - both serving scrummy cakes and both welcome dogs. Overall a great place to stay and we would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone - especially if you are looking for somewhere to stay where you are permitted to take your dog.

Loch Rannoch Highland Lodges enjoy a unique position in a very beautiful setting. We enjoyed the peacefulness and the comfortable accommodation. We appreciated the activities too. The clansmen's informative demonstration and talk, and the whisky tasting were excellent. It was unfortunately rather hard work for my husband and myself to negotiate the numerous steps required to access our unit. But the view over the loch and along the valley compensated in no small measure for that. We had a very enjoyable stay at Loch Rannoch. Thank you.

Lovely location with great views overlooking the loch. Studio was well fitted out, clean but very dated. The lighting was poor at night and you couldn't read in bed. The patio doors leading into the conservatory were broken. This would have been a problem if it had been cold. We weren't happy about paying for electric as we pay our maintenance for our own time share. The hotel next door is handy for food and drinks but be careful as the prices are extortionate!!

This lodge was overlooking Loch Rannoch and the Schiehallion Munro. The views were stunning and beautiful and would be difficult to improve on. The lodge itself was well set into the hillside with a balcony that showed off these views to perfection. The lodge itself was tired and needed a facelift to bring it to current standards, but this in no way detracted from the holiday. All the appliances there worked well although they were a little old and could do with updating. Overall this was a fantastic holiday location and any of the negative comments I have made simply disappeared with the beauty of the loch and the Munro.

Lovely accommodation with far more equipment in kitchen than we could ever want to use which included a slow cooker and electric steamer. However there were no instructions on their use so they remained where they were when we arrived! Beautiful views across the loch and we were blessed with a week of warm sunshine, however there was nowhere where we could sit outside to enjoy it. The resort is built into a steepish hillside and most apartments have a considerable number of steps to access them so not for the infirm. While we enjoyed our week, we would say this resort is mostly for people who enjoy walking and are unconcerned by the narrow and bendy and long roads from the A9.

Review No: 178 by Mr Crawford who stayed here on 26/05/2016 Language Flag

We were booked in here for a week from Thursday 26th May but did not arrive until the Friday. Were asked before arriving to fill out a form asking you what electrical appliances you wanted switched on, i.e. hot water, fridge/freezer and heating as you pay for electricity. We only chose the fridge as we knew we could turn on the water when we got there and heating if needed. The weather was fantastic and we did not need the heating, meaning at the end of the week, our electricity bill was £9.45. We were allocated Red Squirrel 7, a 2 bedroomed lodge, at the end of the club and had to go down stairs to the side entrance door. This led into an entrance hall with doors to the left and right to the bedrooms and bathrooms, with the main bathroom also having a sauna in it. You then had to go upstairs to the living area which was a good size, a 4 seater leather couch, 2 chairs, six seater dining table and a pull down wardrobe bed. There was also an enclosed patio area with 2 chairs and a 2 seater sofa in it, with a fabulous view of the loch and hills. The place as said in other reviews is isolated and hilly with no resort facilities apart from being allowed to use the bar and restaurant of the Macdonald hotel which some owners refuse to support. The hotel in the village is undergoing refurbishment and should be a welcome addition to be able to use. The Rannoch railway station is 18 miles west of the village and here the road ends. We caught the 11.05 train here to go to Mallaig via Fort William at a cost of £54.60 return for both of us. You can catch the earlier Jacobite Steam train but you have to wait in Fort Wiliam for a few hours before going on to Mallaig and book well in advance. The trains go over the Glenfinnan viaduct made famous in Harry Potter films. There are some good walks around Loch Ranoch, up Craig Varr at 340m with beautiful views down to the Loch and village and Rannoch Forest is a good walk but you have to drive there.

All in beds comfortable and linen of good quality. Towels fluffy and plentiful. Equipment and crockery adequate but apartment does need upgraded.

Loch Rannoch was further away than anticipated and when we finally got there, it was stunning! Well worth the extra few miles and we had a most marvellous week. The sunny weather gave us breath-taking views of the lake and hills every morning when we opened the bedroom curtains. The accommodation was excellent, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The best thing by far being the conservatory overlooking the lake, we didn't use the sauna as it was very warm weather. The site was well maintained and staff were very friendly. There is so much to do and see around the area, we shall have to go again to visit what we didn't have time for. Cannot wait!!

The views of Loch Rannoch and Schiehallion from living room balcony and bedroom are stunning - best outlook of any timeshare we have experienced. Rental costs very reasonable. Only restaurant within walking distance for evening meal (May 2016) is the virtually on-site Macdonald Loch Rannoch Hotel. The latter is well up to Macdonald standard. Day time cafes are everywhere. Lots of places to explore by car from Rannoch station in the west, House of Bruar and Blair Atholl to the north, Pitlochry to the east and Aberfeldy, Loch Tay, and Glen Lyon to the south. The Scottish Crannog Centre is outstanding. There are lots of walks all around graded from a village stroll to climbing Schiehallion.

Review No: 189 by Mrs Peck who stayed here on 16/04/2016 Language Flag

We were welcomed by a very helpful member of staff, who went to great lengths to explain where the best fly fishing was available. The Lodge was exceptional having been recently modernised. The size of the accommodation took us by surprise, it was enormous. The upside down set up with the living rooms upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs made full advantage of the wonderful ever changing views over Loch Rannoch. The kitchen was lacking nothing and had every device needed and more than enough cutlery and crockery. The furnishings were new and comfortable and the conservatory was large and offered panoramic views of the Loch and surrounding Munroes. Both bedrooms were large and the fold down bed was of good quality. There were two bathrooms down stairs and a WC upstairs. The bathrooms although perfectly adequate were a little tired and we never used the Sauna as we had be told this would bump up the electric bill payable at the end of the stay. We never got to use the gym and pool as we were told there was some kind of fall out between the Hotel and the Highland Club owners. This seems very petty and needs sorting. This is a wonderful and isolated part of the world and you will need a car to take full advantage of the area. We took a train ride from Rannoch station to Mallaig which has to be up there with the best train rides in the world. The views were spectacular and a couple of hours in the old fishing village before our return journey, a lovely day. To cap a fabulous week I even managed to catch a couple of wild brown trout fly fishing on the river. We saw Buzzards a Golden Eagle a Weasel lots of deer a Kingfisher and lots more wildlife. To sum up, if you like peace and quiet beautiful scenery, courteous staff, spacious well appointed accommodation Loch Rannoch Highland Club is for you.

Review No: 190 by Mr Baker who stayed here on 16/04/2016 Language Flag

The ONLY place to eat in Kinloch Rannoch in the evening, is the McDonald country club which sits in the middle of the complex and is separately owned. Be aware that a 2-course bar meal for 2, with a bottle of wine, one soft drink and 2 liqueurs, was over £100. Not exactly normal bar-supper prices. Next-nearest to eat was Aberfeldy or Pitlochry, which are both 35+ minutes away on twisting roads. The fold-down bed in the studio apartment was extremely uncomfortable with an old spring mattress. There is a very small bunk-bedroom which we used as a dressing room, and did consider sleeping there, but the bed-linen was smelling of sweat so was not used as an alternative. (My good lady and I do prefer to sleep side-by-side and not separately - so we persevered with Lumpy.) Flooring very noisy with squeaking floorboards in all areas except kitchen and bathroom. (Tiled) We were in Lochside 8, right at the very end of the complex nearest the viallge, and apart from all of the above, we enjoyed the stay. The balcony views of nearby Schehallion and up the loch were absolutely stunning.

Review No: 193 by Mr Dodds who stayed here on 14/04/2016 Language Flag

Location and views were very good. Steepness of parking area and of vehicle access to unit [Otter 5] took a bit of getting used to. Vehicle access to site at junction with road and past hotel needs some repair. Blind corner at property boundary of hotel needs care. Distance from Parking area to accomodation meant a lot of carrying on arrival and departure. Radio reception was virtually unavailable except through TV. This slightly reduced the comfort/convenience of the bedroom. Cold tap in bathroom basin needs attention. None of the above significantly affected a most enjoyable stay. We would recommend the resort for people with an interest in the secenery, wildlife and history of the area and/or in short and long-distance walking.

We went along to the information meeting which is well worth while - we singed up for a water painting class with Ursula which was really an enjoyable couple of hours. We also attended the wonderful Highlander night where Jim & John entertained us with demonstrations of highland dress, survival skills & weaponry - a thoroughly enjoyable & highly recommended experience. We gave the whiskey taking a miss but heard great tales of generous measures & hospitality. Again we missed the organised walk which hopefully we will make on out next visit. The apartment arm chairs were in need of replacement & I didn't have a problem with the pull down bed. The black out curtains are great. The kitchen well equipped & the small problem encountered with the water temperature was fixed by the time we returned so maintenance response was excellent. I wish the issue with using the leisure facilities could be resolved - this is something that would enhance a stay. My kids & dog bravely did some loch paddling but I wasn't so adventurous. We will definitely visit again as there always seems to be availability - this is obviously a well hidden gem.

This apartment was a delight. Fantastic location with outstanding views from the conservatory over Loch Rannoch, Schiehallion to the left and Glencoe to the right. However, do not come here if have access difficulties - its a steep climb to the apartment them more steep steps to the lounge area. The other negative comment is the parking area which is impossible to park in for lodge 40. There is so much to explore in the area - we climbed Schiehallion, did the walk from Rannoch Station to Corrour and got the train back and a forestry walk on the south side of the the Loch. The cafe is great in Kinloch Rannoch, very friendly staff who loved our Collie dog. We didn't use the hotel as dogs not allowed and you cant leave your dog alone in the villa. It looks like another hotel is being renovated in the village though which hopefully will allow dogs. The shop had everything you needed. Best of all, no midges at this time of the year! Will hopefully go back in the future - lots more to explore.

Beautiful views. Unfortunately there is no access to the hotel swimming pool allowed. There are no local facilities so a long drive to obtain anything. No child friendly activities or interests put on. Ok as a base, but not what you would describe as a resort.

Review No: 197 by Mr Neale who stayed here on 01/04/2016 Language Flag

A fabulous resort beside Loch Rannoch.. The apartment was very best. Large living room/kitchen. Good size bathroom. Very nice bedroom. Lots of storage. A useful hall and as a bonus a warm cosy well appointed conservatory from where the Loch Views were stunning. The only draw back for us was the 20 mile drive to the main road and the 20 mile drive back. BUT I guess that is the price you have to pay for such peace, quiet and beauty. Would recommend it to anyone. Tony and Victoria Neale

We had a wonderful week at this resort which is set in the most spectacular scenery. If you are planning a week of walking or just relaxing this is the resort for you. There is nothing else available at the resort unless you drive 10 to 20 miles and beware because of the roads 10 to 20 miles will take you at least 30 minutes. All of the apartments will have a lovely view of the loch and mountains. The furnishings were of a high quality but dated. The kitchen perfectly good but I would say is an original and about 30 years old. Beds were comfortable and the apartment was quiet. There is a Macdonald's hotel on site which is handy if you do not want to cook but is quite expensive. The village of Kinloch Rannoch is a short walk which does have a convenience store. The village has a coffee shop and also a hotel which is presently being refurbished. We did a few trips. Rannoch Station (18miles away) to Mallaig by train which has been made even more famous by Harry Potter films. Pitlochry (20 miles) which is nice Scottish tourist town. Bruar Fall (15miles) which started as an upmarket food shop and restaurant but has expanded into a large complex of clothes shops and much more. Aberfeldy (20 miles) is another possibility we did not visit this time but it is another lovely town. We would probably not visit again because it is too remote for us.

Our lodge had 86 steps from car parking space to top of house. I am a fit 78 year old my wife a fit 74, which was just as well. Someone less fit or maybe disabled would have had an lmpossibble task. Lodges 41 to 48 have this step problem.

There is a pool and gym at Resort but these can only be used by MacDonald members which is a shame and also why I have put N/A We were extremely pleased with the resort as a whole, the accommodation was excellent, as was the check in/out procedure and the member of staff on duty when we checked in was very helpful and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and all the things that were happening. We only used the Hotel once for drinks and found it way to expensive. £11.10 for a pint of beer and a small glass of wine!!!!!! Is this aimed at the London set or Americans, don't know but even for them would be unacceptable.

Loch Rannoch was a beautiful place, accommodation, excellent, the view was like heaven, absolutely brilliant. Unfortnately we had to cut our holiday short, rush back to the Midlands, to take my husband to hospital, he nearly died, got him to the hospital on time, was a shame but my husband not well enough to stop any longer, would like to take this opportunity , to thank everyone at Loch Rannoch, they were brilliant, Thankyou

Review No: 205 by Mr Rainton who stayed here on 05/03/2016 Language Flag

We were in Highland Lodge 33 which sleeps 8. It is very spacious with 3 proper double bedrooms & having been refurbished is of a super quality. Fantastic views over the Loch & an indoor balcony which catches the sunshine , even in winter. Very well equipped for anyone who enjoys cooking. Although there is no washer in the lodge, the laundry is a 2 minute walk away & is only £1 for a large load. For anyone with dogs (like us), there are numerous forest walks all around the area. Only negatives are the lack of eating places nearby. Most places are at least 20mins drive away, so take as much food as possible with you. Also it is a great pity that there is no arrangement with the Macdonalds hotel for timeshare guests to use the leisure facilities. A brilliant place for anyone who wants a quiet week in quality accommodation.

Review No: 206 by Mr Ansell who stayed here on 04/03/2016 Language Flag

This is our first visit to this resort and we found the location stunning being on the edge of the loch. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, there very few local eating places and of those that were available were very expensive especially the local cafe. I hope this will be altered with the completion of the renovation of the local hotel. We would definitely consider returning to this location in the future.

Review No: 207 by Miss Millar who stayed here on 27/02/2016 Language Flag

Wonderful, relaxing time spent enjoying walking the dog on the numerous trails available. I stayed off peak and hardly met a soul when out locally but those I did meet were welcoming. Scenery is second to none! Superb for cycling and for the more adventurous there's outdoor activity centres nearby. Scotland at its best - car essential for access to town life and to reach most attractions the area offers. Whiskey trails and historical interests in abundance as well as good restaurants in Aberfeldy and Pitlochry. Accommodation of a good standard staying at Lochside (fewer stairs) which was ideal for me.

Review No: 208 by Mrs Salter-Smith who stayed here on 27/02/2016 Language Flag

A spacious 2 bed apartment with a large balcony/conservatory was very well equipped and furnished. The views of the loch and the mountains from the apartment are stunning. Our apartment was high up on the hillside with 80 steps to climb to reach it. However, there are many apartments/lodges with only a few steps or none at all. We were there urging a cold winter snap so we used quite an amount of electricity. At 14p a unit the bill built up and was £83 for 8 nights. There are lots of things to do in the area, walking, cycling, whisky tasting, the clan night, guided walks, a day out by train from Rannoch station to Fort William. We even went to an excellent classical concert on the Friday evening in the local church. Overall we had a wonderful holiday.

Review No: 210 by Mr Walker who stayed here on 12/02/2016 Language Flag

loved the resort for the scenery and the surrounding areas although some distance away were well worth visiting, the resort is lacking a bar or somewhere the guests could meet we did attend the clan and whiskey tasting night but most of the time we never saw many people the internet was hit and miss due to the location and what a pity we were not allowed to use the pool also you need to make sure you have fuel as the nearest petrol station is 20 miles away

Review No: 211 by Mr Hutchinson who stayed here on 30/01/2016 Language Flag

Stayed in a lodge (44) that has not yet been updated so looking a bit tired, but still an excellent lodge. Lots of steps to climb from road to lodge, so no good if any disability, but excellent views once up there. Have stayed here lots of times & would return again. Pool belongs to McDonald hotel, so anyone staying in lodges are not allowed to use it. Lovely walks around village. Can recommend the Clan night & whisky tasting. Staff are very helpful. Electricity can run out to be very expensive if weather is cold, cost us £49 for week & we were out every day so heating wasn't on during day.

Review No: 213 by Mr Stevely who stayed here on 09/01/2016 Language Flag

Well to use a well worn cliche, it was a game of two halves! I'll do the bad first so we end on a high! Having read other reviews I was aware that the electricity charge would be high. Unlike and against the grain we were a bit more frugal than usual but still eneded up being charged more than 12 pounds per day! This is just a blatant rip off and tarnishes what is otherwise a nice timeshare resort! Other minus points have to go to the 80's style kitchen which although huge and very well equipped definitely shows signs of age! The heating system is also extremely outdated and this resort will never win any eco friendly awards! Electric heating in a most uneconomic way. Ps. No matter how cold it is outside there is no need to have the thermostat set at 30c on arrival. ( Let's rip the DAE clients off!) Decor and furnishings also need a major overhaul, the Lounge / Dining area weren't too bad apart from the conservatory which sorely needs attention but the bedroom / bathroom level could certainly do with a makeover, wall decor, wardrobes and beds definitely need to be renewed! On a plus side, you will be surrounded by the best scenery you could imagine, Kinloch Rannoch is a jewel in the crown of Perthshire, lovely walks and so peaceful and laid back. There is a real lack of places to eat within a short drive though so my advice would be to make sure you take plenty supplies with you although both Asda and Tesco deliver. On the communication front, our lodge HL6 had good Wi-fi coverage, bit ropey downstairs. Mobile coverage wasn't as bad as I expected but went up & down like a yo-yo on 3 and EE. It could go from nil to full signal from chair to chair! I've read about hostility between the MacDonalds Hotel and the resort, it was closed for refurb when we were there but I would suggest that they bang their heads together and get some good deals going for visitors, to me it's a no brainer for a mutually beneficial business opportunity!

Review No: 215 by Mr Fox who stayed here on 25/12/2015 Language Flag

Although the location is stunning the facility could do with a refurb. Service at hotel was poor one bar person taking 15 mins to serve when bar not even busy( used glasses constantly stacked up on bar). Rooms were basic, wifi almost non existant. Storms in area brought flooding to the area with our room having three inches of water outside meaning we got our feet soaked each time we left the rooms . A power blackout left us with no electricity to the complex therefore we had no lighting, cooking facilities, hot water to wash, phones were down etc. with nightfall looming after five hours of no power we decided to leave two days early as the health and safety of our two young kids was a priority and the management could give no gauarantees if power would be returned any time soon. After emailing resort on our return home the management basically said tough luck which I didn't find acceptable. Not a plesent experience for our family unfortunately.

Highland lodge no 4 was of excellent standard with amazing views. Pine lodge no 1 was also excellent but more older fashioned as not recently refurbished. We had an amazing few days away with better kitchen than at home a real home feeling to the lodge. Quite off the beaten track but a well stocked local store and a real nice outlet shopping food hall and clothing at Briars 10 miles away.

Well equipped kitchen, comfy lounge chairs and sofa, beds comfy had a good sleep every night, views to die for, grounds and gardens immaculate, roads well maintained and gritted after snowfall. Sauna was a bonus but didn't have time to use it. Electric heaters kept us warm and soon heated the whole of the rooms. Plenty of hot water all the time. No Wi fi at all.

Stayed here from 14th November until 21st November,during a cold wet,wet,snowy week..which on arrival the lodge was very, very cold not preheated for us anywhere which was a problem heating up the rooms we used.I agree with most of the other reviews reference the good and bad aspects,the weather you have to go with where ever you go of course.The area around Kinloch Rannoch was ideal for walking,cycling etc.But is was a break for us anyway,but the downside is the electric bills charged at top premium ours was £71.00 for a week!!!..That is about what we pay for gas and electric at home per month.Yes would agree outdated while the idea is to conserve energy..too remote for travelling around the area,a long way to get back to main roads.

Review No: 219 by Mrs Jamieson who stayed here on 13/11/2015 Language Flag

Sadly this holiday did not meet our expectations. The bed was very uncomfortable, and was very cold to get into. We spent two nights with very little sleep and then came home. The apartment was extremely cold and the heating system of small electric convector heaters totally inadequate for the space they were meant to heat. These are completely outdated-in 2015 surely time share properties should be heated by a modern and efficient central heating system? It seemed as if this heating would have been there since these properties were built. We are outdoor people and are well used to dealing with weather as it comes but I do expect to be warm and cosy inside. The quality of the buildings does not compare at all with the Time Share property which we own at Scandinavian Village in Aviemore where we have been going for over 30 years since just after it was built. It is so well heated and insulated that it is wonderfully warm inside no matter the conditions outside. As our property Red Deer at Kinlochrannoch also sleeps four, I would have expected the same level of comfort. If I were an owner at Kinlochrannoch I would expect more for my licence fee. I would comment too that this place is only for the fit and able, with the way the resort has been built to take advantage of the views. Although in our seventies, we are both very fit, so the hills and steps were not a problem to us but could certainly be problematic for the less fit and able. The car parking too was very tight, with not much space. Thankfully there was no one in the space adjoining ours. I sent an email directly to the resort on Monday this week, the day after we returned home, and am disappointed that I have thus far not had a reply. This is a beautiful location, but sadly on this occasion my £200 bonus week was wasted and I would have difficulty recommending the resort to others. I do however look forward to using DAE again in the future. Regards Elspeth Jamieson

The location of the resort is very quiet, there are lots of walks and the resort do organise activities during the week you are there. All of the staff were very friendly and were always there to help out in any way they could. If you are going there from the south, the best road to take is B847 from Calvine and not the B8019, its a much easier road to drive. The resort is going through a refurbishment programme and the lodge we stay in was not one of the ones that had seen any new work. It was all a bit tired, carpets with tears, doors on cupboards that didn't close properly, although there was plenty of space, the kitchen is well equipped and well laid out. Beware if you go there in the winter months and it is cold outside the electric bill could be a bit steep, We were only using 3/4 electric wall heaters in the lodge and some cooking and we had a bill for over £10 a day. If you don't like steps be very careful which side of the road you are allocated a lodge, if you are on the opposite side to the lake you could have 40-60 steps to get up to your lodge, when you are unpacking the car its hard work.

Kinloch Rannoch Highland Club is an excellent choice to get away from it all. The views over the loch are beautiful with views of Schiehallion once the mist has lifted (November). Highland Lodge 35 is a large lodge for up to 8 people. Excellent decor and furnishings. I was surprised to learn it is to be refurbished. There were about 30 steps up to the lodge from our parking space but when we arrived ahelpful member of staff was driving by and helped with our luggage. The parking space we were allocated was very steep but our friends were allocated a nearby unoccupied space. Excellent activities included the Whisky Tasting, six generous measures. Just make sure you sign up at the meeting since places are limited to twenty. An interesting walk lead by Steve around Rannoch Black Wood was excellent even in the rain. Autumn colours exceptional! All members of staff we encountered were friendly and helpful! Despite the November weather a great exchange. We look forward to return perhaps in the Spring next time.

Review No: 224 by Mr Waters who stayed here on 24/10/2015 Language Flag

Great resort but unfortunately there has been a fall out between the hotel owners Macdonald Hotels and the resort Loch Rannoch Highland Club. This results in taking away the use of the swimming pool for timeshare visitors, there is a notice displayed stating that if any timeshare users are found using the facilities the police will be called a little over the top I think! Parking is restricted to one bay per lodge so difficult if your in a sleep 8. Otherwise a great location and fabulous walks if your a dog owner, lodge facilities first class and friendly staff in the sales office. The hotel however is ripping people off and maximising on the captive audience it has £4.95 for a pint of lager and £13.95 for burger and chips, no wonder the place was empty, local village shop was very busy though!

Set in absolutely stunning scenery - beautiful walks- fantastic view from our studio on second floor. It was a good job we a) Went in the car for the shopping as opposed to the motorbike b) Plus could then take more appropriate weather clothes & big boots & wellies etc.. c) Good service shopping wise offered but obviously at higher cost than supermarket d) Nearest supermarket Pitlochrey Co-op 12 mile long windy roads so need to stock up e) N/A regarding swimming pool etc as we didn't use them at all but they looked fine. Studio had everything we could think of - good quality appliances etc.. all home comforts & we had a wonderful time. Certainly recommend the time of year for the Enchanted Forest as it was fantastic!

Location of our lodge on the loch was excellent and the resort was situated in a beautiful are with easy driving access to the Tay valley walks and Pitlochry, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The village had great facilities for its remote location. Greats for dogs with lots of dog bins and paved walkway to the village. The lodge was warm and had great appliances and kitchen we cooked every night - we were amazed at how low our electricity was when we checked out. Evening activity we signed up for was cancelled, which was disappointing. Would have been good to be able to use the hotel pool. Refuse near our lodge could be better organised with bottle bank and more recycling. We would like to go back for another visit, we really loved the area.

Review No: 228 by Mr Williamson who stayed here on 16/10/2015 Language Flag

Our first visit to Loch Rannoch Highland Club having been to Loch Tay area eight years ago. We hadn't appreciated that we'd have a 35 minute drive just to get to the main A9 road (Pitlochry) and were thoroughly cheesed off by the end of the week by the distances covered! The scenery however, almost made up for that mileages covered: stunning mountains and mirror clear water on the lochs. The accommodation was up to standard and the view from the apartment was fabulous. Evening meals were mainly taken right next door at the Bar of the Macdonalds Hotel. Food was a bit limited for fish-eating vegetarians. We had no quibble with the prices except for the fish and chips at £14 a throw! Having seen the size of the portion, we ordered for one and an extra bowl of chips. That was quite adequate for us and the staff were very happy to provide an extra plate. The two ladies waiting on us and staffing the bar were very friendly too. Talking about friendly service: both the cafe at Rannoch Station and Kinloch Rannoch village cafe provided pleasant surroundings with extremely friendly staff, especially when you clear your mugs and plates back to the counter. Our only activity within the resort was the whiskey tasting run by Tommy. This was free, very enlightening and better than at a distillery as you get only one 'type' at the distilleries whereas at the club we tested 6 different samples. Some criticism has been made of the cost of the electricity. We had a bill for the week of £20 that covered almost constant heating and hot water. We didn't follow the suggestion that the water was left on all the time - just switching on when it became clear the temp had fallen too low. The water was scalding anyway! Why do holiday places do that? Great Places: Watermill cafe at Blair Atholl, the grounds of Blair Castle, Pitlochry COOP for food, Birnam Institute for their cafe, The Birnam Oak, Rannoch Station Cafe (above), Riverbank Cafe in Kinloch Rannock (above).

Had a lovely family holiday in this very nice resort. Weather was excellent, so made a big difference. Actual bricks and mortar of the lodge was not great but as soon as you entered, there was a bit of a 'wow' factor. It was very clean. Big downside is the lack of any facilities,; nearest pool 20 miles away and off course chargeable. The cost of electricity was excessive as not a great use was made of the electricity; probably cost over twice the amount our house at home would cost. Clearly, no evidence of using low energy bulbs. 15 of 42 watt bulbs in the living area alone. A downright disgrace especially as advised they were all low energy! Staff were all very pleasant and a particular thankyou to Juan at reception. Yes i would return but not without taking my supply of electric bulbs!

We enjoyed our stay here we were in apartment 9. We felt that the standard of the apartment was tired and in need of decorating and refurbishment. However it was clean and comfortable. The beds extremely comfortable! The kitchen equipment was excellent with a slow cooker not often supplied. The view from the apartment was over the loch and looking towards mountains and beautiful. The nearest shop is in Kinloch Rannoch which sells all the main food supplies, papers and a few other bits. We enjoyed a Landrover safari with lunch from the Highland Safari centre and a trip on the Jacobite express as well as tea and cakes at Rannoch Station tea rooms. This area is ideal for those who like cycling, walking or riding in the car enjoying the views. There are plenty of visitor attractions and distilleries not far away. The weather during our stay was excellent given that it is October with some mist early morning which soon cleared turning into sunshine. The trees had all their autumn colours on which added to the glorious views. We will certainly go back in the future.

A wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings. The view from the apartment was out of this world. The weather was perfect and we went out every day on both long and short walks in gorgeous scenery. The equipment in the apartment covered any contingency and was of excellent quality. We enjoyed the Clan night and the whisky tasting which was very generous. Would love to go back. We gave Wifi and mobile phones a rest and throughly enjoyed the experience. Our electricity bill was very fair, but we were careful and the weather was fine. One of our best holidays.

Loch Rannoch Highland Club, stayed in Otter #7 for the long weekend. Unit was excellent, recently refurbished and cleaned to a high standard, no cobwebs on the lampshades etc!. Lodge layout also excellent with superb views out across the Loch and luckily we had good weather so could enjoy it fully. General resort very good, staff very helpful and seemed plenty of them around. Obviously this resort is a bit off the beaten track but this is part of the attraction, very relaxing pace of life although there is plenty of scope for local walks. Only local bar, the Loch Rannoch hotel, very pricey both for food and drink but they do have a captive audience and are some way from the A9. Overall an excellent location, superb well appointed accommodation and good staff make this a must for someone looking for a relaxing break.

The patio areas were very poor. Chipped floor tiles. Shabby paintwork. Moss growing all over the place. Had not been brushed before taking entry thus leafs and cobwebs everywhere. Very disappointing. Dangerous road to cross over to get to car parking. Could do with requesting zebra crossing and warning signs to drivers. Electricity very expensive £101 for a week as had elderly parents with us and did not want cold or dampness to affect them. The Lochside apartments not suitable for young children due to location right beside and on the bend of a quiet but dangerous road. Overall enjoyed holiday for location of accommodation and comfort of apartments although apartment requires refurbishment. The staff were very anxious to please and extremely helpful but attention to cleanliness of outside areas is required.

Review No: 236 by Mrs Fairey who stayed here on 01/10/2015 Language Flag

This was definitely a room with a view as are all of the units on this site. As warned before we arrived this is not a resort if you are not quite mobile although the steps up to our lodge were easily manageable. The accommodation was very clean and of excellent quality. I had asked for both bedooms to be made up as doubles and this had been done. The beds were capacious and comfortable. There was plenty of storage space in both rooms and in the lounge if you needed to use this as a third bedroom. The bed pulled down which is very convenient and much better than a sofa bed. The kitchen was well equipped, there was even a slow cooker and a steamer! Kitchen towels, washing up liquid and more than enough dishwasher tablets were also provided which is unusual but welcome. There was a sauna in the en-suite bathroom but we did not use this. The electricity is charged per unit which is a better way of doing it than a blanket charge, it certainly makes you more aware of what you are using. There is a swimming pool on the site but things belongs to the hotel and only hotel residents are allowed to use it. Very short-sighted of the hotel as whenever we passed by there were only a couple of times it was being used. I would have been more than happy to pay a small charge to use it. The hotel is also the only place in the village to have an evening meal but this is apparently quite pricey ( we were told it was 15 pounds for fish and chips although we didn't personally verify this). There is a good village shop/post office, a couple of galleries and a wonderful cafe which makes the best hot chocolate. And home made soup! A butcher van comes onto the resort once a week and a fish and chip van visits the village on a Wednesday. This resort is a long way out but if you are a keen walker or just want to chill for a week it is ideal. The Loch is beautiful and peaceful. If you are into fishing permits can be purchased at reception, but the fishing season ends on the 7th Octobe

Really comfortable beds pillows too small. Wider pillows would make it excellent. Would rather have a full shower than over the bath or sauna but that's just personal choice. Fantastic staff and well maintained resort.

What a great weeks holiday, weather,lodges and area was perfect. This is a remote part of the world and if you forget something from home would not be easy to obtain it. However the lodges are so well equipped with kitchen equipment that we were really pleased...flasks,tupperware,lots of cleaning products,loads of towels and tea towels. Perfect for the week away .Even a welcome pack with milk tea and coffee. There is a local store/post office which was well priced and stocked, but main meals for cooking are better brought along. The local cafe is also a nice snack place and morning coffee after a 2 mile walk with the dog before breakfast was welcome. The McDonalds hotel on site is a lovely place for a drink or bar meal, well priced,plus a good set menu for £30 each three course meal. We worried that the units being "dog friendly" might be a bit smelly...of wet dog...no need to worry at all. They were well aired and not trace of any smell. Beds were comfy and pillows great. We slept like babies. The whole resort was friendly with smashing staff who were helpful and courteous. It was clean and the lodges were all provided with dog poo bags so no excuses for anyone to be lazy. Bins were very 20 years so disposal wasn't an issue. I am already looking forward to another stay here and would recommend .
