Amazing views from the property made the stay. Property/resort tired and in need of modernising.

Review No: 2 by Dr Foster who stayed here on 05/09/2020 Language Flag

Another great week at LRHC. Probably one of my favourite units so far - HL47. Very very enjoyable and only saddened that it's our last visit this year, though we'll look forward to a few visits next year.

Review No: 3 by Mr Bridgewater who stayed here on 03/09/2020 Language Flag

Our one bedroom apartment had recently been refurbished and it was of a very high standard. Very well equipped and all furnishings and appliances were also very high standard - very impressed. Beautiful views of the Loch which we thoroughly enjoyed. There are some lovely walks not too far away and it is a very pleasant 23 mile cycle ride around the Loch. Due to current Covid 19 restrictions there were no leaflets etc in the apartment but it is fairly easy to google local walks and attractions. We also took our own board games as these are not currently in apartments. Very pleasant stay and we hope to return before too long.

Wonderful location & views, with caring staff & prompt efficient maintenance when oven failed. Bathrooms & some other areas now looking a little tired.

Review No: 5 by Mrs Stevenson who stayed here on 08/08/2020 Language Flag

We were here mid August and found the surroundings stunning It was a very hot week so the only negative was how hot the lodge was, we couldn’t have the windows open due to midgets and the 2 guests that were sleeping upstairs had very hot sleeping conditions

Review No: 6 by Mrs Alexander who stayed here on 07/08/2020 Language Flag

Had a lovely week. Weather was gorgeous. Accommodation was clean and furnished to a high standard. Ensuite bathroom could do with being updated though. Lovely balcony off this bedroom.

Review No: 7 by Mr Brown who stayed here on 01/08/2020 Language Flag

Loch Rannoch and the surrounding area is beautiful. The views are stunning and there are many lovely walks for those who like the remoteness of the Scottish countryside. The accommodation was a little disappointing though as it looked like it needed a bit of TLC. There was a strong musty smell on the ground floor, paintwork was peeling in at least one of the bathrooms and there were several stains on carpets and chairs. The conservatory was leaking through a loose roof panel and the steel safety barrier was very rusty. The hotel onsite was closed and looked as though it had been mothballed for longer than the lockdown period. I appreciate that the contractors onsite were dealing with work that it was not possible to do during the previous four months.

Review No: 8 by Mrs Jessamine who stayed here on 31/07/2020 Language Flag

I accept that the Corona virus has had a detrimental effect on holiday sites but it was the complete lack of information that upset us. There could have been a welcome sheet explaining where the nearest shops etc were. Also the opening times of the nearest restaurant. or perhaps a phone call to say hi how are you managing. If we hadn't brought basic provisions with us we would have been in a sorry state. The apartments are in a very remote area so local facilities are limited.

Review No: 9 by Mr Sneddon who stayed here on 30/07/2020 Language Flag

Loch Rannoch Highland Lodges make a week break from the humdrum of life, a great walk in the Sun, just Superb. The facilities in the Lodge were up to date, so it felt like ‘home from home’. Need to rebook as soon as possible.

Review No: 10 by Mrs McBean who stayed here on 21/03/2020 Language Flag

Although the property was quite dated the living, dining, kitchen area was very large and a great social space. The kitchen was very well equipped and good quality. We were there in March and the covered patio area was a good place to sit and enjoy the lovely views. Understandably because of the Coronavirus pandemic, all of the restaurants were closed and we left early to go home for the lockdown, we would certainly go back to the area again when things are open, we particularly liked Kenmore and Aberfeldy.

Review No: 11 by Mr Sneddon who stayed here on 14/03/2020 Language Flag

The Highland Lodges at Loch Rannoch are the best advert for Scotland's beautiful countryside. During the difficulty of the present Virus around the Globe, the self catering lodges are the ideal resort to reside at and get away from it all, but still able to get around and see the rivers, Loch's and the mountains of all around.

Review No: 12 by Mrs Ashby who stayed here on 14/03/2020 Language Flag

DAE exchanged our 3-bed gold crown week for a 1-bed apartment which turned out to be 2 bunk beds and a poor put-u-up! 1-bed SHOULD mean adequate beds for 2 adults, Fortunately the resort were very helpful and exchanged us from Lodge 8 (inadequate) to first, Lodge 1 - beautiful but impossible to heat! then Lodge 2. Fantastic in every way. So, thanks to the resort staff, we had a perfect week - the most beautiful location and weather, fantastic drives around the Loch, to Blair Atholl, Pitlochry... Beautiful part of Scotland! Good local shop, but no acceptably priced local eateries. Don't expect any facilities from the Hotel. Never saw any evidence of the 'sauna'???? Take your own bird seed and feeders. We didn't stint on heating (weather was sunny and mild for March) and only cost £34 for 6 days. Altogether a truly wonderful holiday.

Review No: 13 by Mr Moss who stayed here on 13/03/2020 Language Flag

This resort is looking very tired which is a great pity as it is in a glorious area and our unit had splendid views across Loch Rannoch. The swimming pool and gym belong to the hotel and people in the lodges have no access. The bar and restaurant are in the hotel also, so there are no facilities attached to the actual resort. There was no file recommending places to visit or restaurants and no contact with any staff members other than when we collected our unit key and when we returned it, this is as the reception is off site. There are signs of upgrading going on in some units which are needed.

Review No: 14 by Mr Hewetson who stayed here on 06/03/2020 Language Flag

Excellent view but 4 flights of stairs with suitcases a bit of a push. Timeshare apartments in serious need of upgrading.

Review No: 15 by Dr Webster who stayed here on 27/02/2020 Language Flag

Loch Rannoch is a beautiful place, very remote and away from it all. The resort is well positioned in the valley with gorgeous views. Units are well appointed but looking a little dated now. The resort is in desperate need of access to leisure facilities and an upto date hotel with facilities to match or at least an agreement with them. If you are of poor mobility think again there are lots of steps and I mean lots. We were in Otter Lodge and carrying things to and from the car including bikes was somewhat onerous. Enjoyed our stay nonetheless though!

Review No: 16 by Mr Sinclair who stayed here on 22/02/2020 Language Flag

Stayed at the Resort end of February for a week in unit 44. The unit was very dated, some chairs were worn with holes in them and several doors did not fit right on kitchen units. We were told that they were updating them, ours had not yet been done. The unit was clean and tidy. There was a lot of steps up to the unit so not good if you have any problems with your legs! The lady on reception was very nice but was obviously new and didn't know a lot about the resort. The Resort Manager was on holiday. We were given an envelope which had basic information but there was no welcome pack in the unit. I called reception to be told they were being updated! There is not a lot to do in Kinnloch Rannoch except go on some of the walks which are nice. The Hotel within the Resort was okay but very expensive for both drinks and food and the food was a bit basic. This is a good resort for sight seeing but you obviously need a car as there is only 1 bus which goes to Pitlochry and back and the service is very limited. You can use the local taxi and they do a subsidised £3 per trip up to Rannoch train station where you can go to Fort WIlliam and beyond. They will take you elsewhere but it is expensive. We were told that there was a washing machine in the unit, there wasn't! The biggest issue we had was the cost of electricity. I have stayed in Timeshare Resorts all over the World and this was by far the most expensive . There was a sauna in our unit but no operating instructions. I inquired with the local maintenance guy about the use and I am glad I did as he explained how to use it but said it was very expensive around £20 for a short time. So we didn't use it however our electricity bill for 6 nights, as we went home a day early was still £88.12!!!!! We only used the heating,TV,lights and the cooker for breakfast.

Review No: 17 by Mrs Cambridge who stayed here on 15/02/2020 Language Flag

We went in February half term with two teenage girls who wanted to stay indoors for most of the week and play games and watch movies. It was a huge apartment with an enclosed balcony that over looked the loch and we had our own sauna!! The only thing I would advise is to monitor the heating closely and turn off radiators that you don't need, and turn off radiators at night to avoid a big heating bill when you check out. Our girls had a great time and said they definitely would go back again to this resort.

Review No: 18 by Mr Kennedy who stayed here on 13/02/2020 Language Flag

The situation of the otter lodge makes it unsuitable for persons with mobility difficulties.

Review No: 19 by Sr Ocaña Casado who stayed here on 25/01/2020 Language Flag

El apartamento mi buen equipado, con plaza de aparcamiento asignado. Ubicación muy bonita. No apto para personas con movilidad reducida. El cargo por electricidad es muy alto. Fueron 118 libras por un apartamento de dos habitaciones y eso que la calefacción de una habitación y un baño no se pusieron y el resto se ponían sino cuando estábamos allí.

Review No: 20 by Mr Allaker who stayed here on 25/01/2020 Language Flag

Lovely stay with friends and family. The units are great and the staff lovely. Great little spot for a quiet getaway from it all.

Review No: 21 by Mrs Collett who stayed here on 04/01/2020 Language Flag

Loved it here... 2 bedroom lodge was huge with plenty of space for our 2x boys to run around & play whilst we could relax & take in the great views across the loch & surrounding mountains. Great local walks... Craig Varr, Shiehallion & the Rannoch Loch Forest walk. Good location for access to the highlands & all they have to offer. Overall a great time & we will definitely look at revisiting sometime in the future!

great timeshare property, pity there are no facilities. Location is second to none Scottish highlands are wonderful

Review No: 23 by Mr Hunnybun who stayed here on 05/12/2019 Language Flag

Unfortunately the weather was atrocious which dampened the spirits, however the accommation was very good and warm and the lodge facilities including the sauna excellent. We went to the hotel to make enquiries about the pool and gym, a very rude responce from the reception woman made it very clear that the lodges had nothing to do with the hotel and that the pool and gym were off limits to us, however we (and our money) would be welcome in the bar and restaurant, The lady behing the bar was excellent and we had a drink and chat with her and left, and didn't return. The outlook from the lodge lounge is beautiful, except it was mainly shrouded with low cloud and mist, and a planned rail trip to Mallaig was cancelled due to the condtions.

Review No: 24 by Mr Slark who stayed here on 09/11/2019 Language Flag

Had a pleasant week in this wonderful area lots to do and see.The unit was comfortable but took a lot of heating to get warm enough, in fact the electricity bill turned out to be a disappointing £93 for a week. We have holidayed here several times at this time of year and know the best places to visit and they never disappoint us.If you rent the highland lodges be aware that there are a lot of steps to get from the car to the unit, our unit was the most extreme 74 steps to the door and then another 20 to get to the upstairs section of the unit.

Review No: 25 by Mrs Clark who stayed here on 19/10/2019 Language Flag

Although the environment in which the lodge was situated was outstanding the accommodation was below par. We had exchanged a week we own at Slaley Hall and there was a stark difference in the quality of furnishings, cleanliness, utilities and hospitality, so the accommodation was disappointing. We own an Easter week and exchanged for an out of season October week so we lost out on a number of levels. The kitchen and bathrooms are desperately in need of upgrade. Cleanliness was basic with a lack of attention to the corners. Whilst we accept that this as a dog friendly resort and dog owners are generally offered accommodation which needs refurbishment but this lodge fell well below our expectations. We have a small, clean and well behaved dog (inherited) which we are not able to take to Slaley Hall because of the owners club policy. So if you’re thinking of exchanging a Slaley Hall Lodge for similar reasons, beware. However, the lodge ‘Loch-side 2’ looked over Loch Rannoch and the surrounding Cairngorms which went some way to compensate. The area is quiet and peaceful with lots to do outdoors and is within travelling distance to activities beyond the loch. A car is essential to enjoy the area. This is the second time we have exchanged with DAE and both times the accommodation has been well below the quality experienced at Slaley Hall and the accommodation certainly did not reflect the fees we paid at Slaley Hall. We won’t be exchanging again.

Review No: 26 by Mr & Mrs Dickinson who stayed here on 11/10/2019 Language Flag

Beds were not good. Need new, firmer mattresses. All linen clean and good quality. Chairs sofas etc all good. Appliances very dated. Tv okay but dvd player was faulty. Needs upgraded to blueray player which also plays normal dvd’s. Leak in the conservatory roof and dripping onto furnishings/ chairs.

Review No: 27 by Ms Smith who stayed here on 11/10/2019 Language Flag

Lovely location with great views and walking. Well equipped kitchen. Some aspects of the unit would benefit from an upgrade.

Review No: 28 by Mr & Mrs Bolan who stayed here on 04/10/2019 Language Flag

We loved our stay . The activities were really good and fun . Best winter holiday for a long time . Our dog was made very welcome . And it made our holiday .

Review No: 29 by Mr Hamilton who stayed here on 03/10/2019 Language Flag

This was a great vacation. The furniture in the conservatory overlooking the Loch was rather faded. We were on the top floor so had 39 steps to climb from the car park. We were not expecting that. The location is amazing and we would return in a heartbeat, but we would pack prepared to carry luggage up so many stairs. The associated hotel changed hands the week that we were there and the new owners are promising a more welcoming relationship with the lodges.

The area was outstanding and we had a great week.

Review No: 31 by Mr & Mrs Taylor who stayed here on 12/09/2019 Language Flag

The site is set in a beautiful area overlooking Loch Rannoch, it is about 15 miles from Pitlochry and therefore a car is a must.

Review No: 32 by Dr Cargill who stayed here on 31/08/2019 Language Flag

An excellent cottage/apartment beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean - with magnificent views of Loch Rannoch and surrounding country. Great area for walking or just looking - weather mixes rain which soon clears to sunshine at least in autumn. Is quite a long way from main roads so allow extra time for the last 20 mls -but worth the effort!

Review No: 33 by Mrs Johnson who stayed here on 30/08/2019 Language Flag

We wouldn’t return to this resort mainly because there were no facilities. There was an hotel, not in the same ownership, but timeshare guests were not allowed to use the pool, gym etc. As there were very few amenities in the actual village it was a long drive to go anywhere. The unit itself was ok but rather dated and in need of an update. We actually left 2 days early, mainly because it rained non stop all week!

Review No: 34 by Dr Foster who stayed here on 10/08/2019 Language Flag

We were delighted to be back at LRHC and in a unit we haven't been in since 2009. Our memories of that (Xmas) visit were pretty good and this visit just reinforced them. The unit has been refurbished since then and it was first-rate in all respects. We've been in quite a few other units in the last couple of years and all have been of high quality but the three bedroom unit is pre-eminent when it comes to providing space and facilities for six people (with eight as a possibile maximum). Very comfortable, very relaxing and a great base to venture forth from, even when the weather is wholly unpredictable - as it was on this visit! The '4 seasons in one day' nature of Scottish weather was certainly evident this time (a contrast to the brilliant sunshine we've experienced in our five other visits in the last two yeasrs - we must have been lucky) but the swift transition from hot sun to warm rain to gusty chill to absolute downpour is easily anticipated if you check the weather forecasts regularly and have the right gear to hand. I'm delighted to say that the resort has tackled the weak internet signal of a few years ago and the connection was fast and consistent. I'd like to see 'dymo-type' labelling on the kitchen power outlets as this could prevent switching off the fridge freezer by mistake when thinking it was the adjacent microwave, or other appliance. I'd also like to see up-to-date instructions leaflets for all appliances without a pile of accompanying leaflets for other, now redundant, appliances being present also. It's a bit confusing leafing through the instructions for a hob which no longer exists or trying to figure out the inter-relationship of TV/satellite handsets without instructions and which are different from those in the last unit occupied. And what happened to the games table? The games are still on the inventory but the old games table had been replaced with a coffee table and we couldn't find the games anywhere. Minor grouses, though!

Another lovely week at Loch Rannoch. We had a maintenance issue in that the handle came off the bathroom door. Dealt with quickly and satisfactorily.

Review No: 36 by Mr & Mrs Ellis who stayed here on 06/07/2019 Language Flag

On arrival we were informed we were not booked in but as we had taken a paper copy of our DAE exchange the receptionist, who did seem a bit flummoxed, took a copy and set us in a cottage that had the owners name and details on, which we crossed out and added ours!!! We were in Lochside 2, a converted cottage, with a brilliant view across the Loch. It was a shame then that the balcony we could sit out on and the wooden chairs were so poorly maintained. Also the grass and ferns around the balcony were so tall they encroached over the floor line, and in a couple of cases the window line, the resort were informed of this. The house itself was very clean, furniture seemed quite new and comfortable. A few organised events in the week were not attended apart from the whisky tasting, which was very good, if a bit slow. It is an area with a few local walks and many within a short car drive. The week passed quite quickly even with mixed weather. Rannoch Station and Pitlochry are places to see and walk from.

Review No: 37 by Mr Firth who stayed here on 22/06/2019 Language Flag

What a gorgeous place, our accommodation was really good with a spectacular view over the Loch, we spent many hours just relaxing and watching the wonderful view. Only thing was there isn't much to do unless you like walking, cycling, canoeing. Quite a way to go to any amenities although there is a village store and lovely tea rooms. An excellent weeks holiday, and very restful.

One of the best resorts I have been to. The location is stunning. The apartment was very well appointed. The local village was charming and very convenient for supplies. The whole area is a gem

Review No: 39 by Mr & Mrs Ragan who stayed here on 07/06/2019 Language Flag

The Rannoch highland club is NOT a club but a number of poor quality apartments. Very outdated and in need of modernisation. it has no facilities apart from an adjacent hotel used mainly for overnight bus tour bus trips. The water sports center as shown on OS maps does not exist. It is clear that Kinnloch Rannoch was at one time a thriving tourist centre but is no more. Not a good holiday location. and the apartments are not to be recommended .

Review No: 40 by Mr & Mrs Pocock who stayed here on 06/06/2019 Language Flag

One of the best exchanges we have had. A wonderful place with a magnificent view over the loch and mountains. We were fortunate to have good weather and enjoyed walking and cycling in the peaceful countryside with the cuckoo calling all day and red squirrels and deer around. Some of the apartments have a lot of stairs but ours didn't which was a plus. The kitchen was well equipped, furnishing comfortable and the glassed in balcony great for sitting in the sun. We went to a 'Clan Night' and learned a lot including how to put on a kilt. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants a break from a busy life and is looking for tranquility in a stunning , remote location.

Review No: 43 by Mr Gittins who stayed here on 16/05/2019 Language Flag

The accommodation at the resort was comfortable and well-appointed, with more facilities than we have previously found available in comparable units. The views were spectacular and the quietness of the resort made for a peaceful holiday. There was adequate parking for easy access to the unit. The location meant that options for dining out were limited, and we felt that the nearby MacDonald Hotel could have been more helpful in this regard, given the number of people 'on their doorstep' using the resort.

Review No: 44 by Dr Foster who stayed here on 11/05/2019 Language Flag

We can't remember how many times we've visited KRHC but, however many (and it's quite a few) we've not stayed in a Lochside unit before. When the whole week is wall-to-wall sunshine anywhere on site would be good but it was special in a Lochside where the downstairs main bedroom has a panorama window looking over the loch almost at water level. Splendid! The unit itself was standard KRHC quality - solid, well set up, furnished and comfortable. We didn't use, or need, the inclusive sauna but we did need the wonderfully comfortable beds after whole days of walking and climbing in warm sunshine. It strikes me that the unit is a little smaller than other two bed units - in terms of floor area - but it's neither here nor there. Unusually the balcony is open to the elements: bliss on a week like we had but not so great if the rain is pelting down! Although, again, smaller in area than other balconies, the enclosed nature (at either side) means that completely private sunbathing is possible while not limiting the wonderous view across the loch. A final advantage, being the most easterly of KRHC territory, was that there was no requirement to slog back up the hill or past the hotel following a walk to the village. Not a big deal but it added to the pleasant location. Of course, we have to add that it's the most peaceful, quiet and scenic location, as far as we are concerned, anywhere!

Fantastic location with exceptional staff the hotel on the grounds make you welcome although the prices are a little higher than we are used to the meals are huge portions. The whiskey tasting evening is a must to attend. Views from the apartment are wonderful as is the surrounding area we will definitely visit again...

Review No: 47 by Mrs Jenkins who stayed here on 27/04/2019 Language Flag

Located right on the bank of Loch Rannoch with mountains all round. Good village shop and cafe and two large hotels nearby serving excellent food. Beware. The cafe closes at 4 and will not even give you a cup of tea at 10 to 4 if you arrive too early for the strict 5.00 check in. Nearest towns and petrol about 20 miles so check your petrol gauge! Peaceful. Good for walking and there is a Munro nearby to climb.

We revisited after 7 years but to a 1 instead of 3 bedroom unit and were equally as delighted as before. All high standards met once again and such a beautiful location and perfect base for our walking activities. And dog friendly too.

Review No: 52 by Mr & Mrs Tomlinson who stayed here on 05/04/2019 Language Flag

The property had everything and the view was brilliant. The resort is too remote for us to return. There was no mention when we viewed the details on dae, that there were a large number of exterior steps up to the accommodation and the ground uneven and uphill to the car park. This was a big problem to me. Fortunately from day 3 we were able to use the disabled parking bay close to the steps.

Review No: 53 by Mr & Mrs Garside who stayed here on 30/03/2019 Language Flag

Second visit to Loch Rannoch and did not disappoint was just a bit chilly. Wonderful Highland Lodge 36 which looked like it had just been refurbished. Stunning views from the conservatory and overall very comfortable. Just one downside is the cost of the electricity £92 and reception had reduced it slightly as she felt it was excessive. We tried to be frugal with the heating and there were 5 of us in a 2 bed lodge. We were told in Winter some bills had been £200! This will not put us off going as it is such a wonderful place but maybe they could look at charging a set average charge on size of unit like a lot of resorts do.

Review No: 54 by Mr & Mrs Underwood who stayed here on 23/03/2019 Language Flag

When we got to Loch Rannoch the lodge we were supposed to have ,was still being updated, We had to take another one at the last minute,when we got keys for lodge . It had not been got ready for us ,no heating on ,fridge freezer not plugged in ,we had to plug it in ,no hot water,dvd not working ,scart lead was out of back, We exchanged this lodge for a August week .only for the views of the lodge we were supposed to have had .we did not get this .Very disappointed with exchange

Review No: 56 by Mrs Fraser who stayed here on 15/03/2019 Language Flag

This was nothing like the quality of the property I exchanged although it was very comfortable but 'tired'. The information about the site was not very good - no mention of the outside stairs (very high); not suitable for people with disability; parking awful; no clubhouse facilities; no access to the on site hotel's swimming pool or fitness suite; limited choice of eating places within walking distance. The lecture on local history and painting class were very informative and enjoyable but were held in a lodge not being currently used.

Review No: 57 by Mrs Hedderwick who stayed here on 09/03/2019 Language Flag

We enjoyed our time aa,t Loch Rannoch, but think the charge for electricity outrageous . Also, it seems a pity that time share people ca n not even buy a days use of the pool etc.

Review No: 60 by Ms Brackley who stayed here on 15/02/2019 Language Flag

This was our second visit to the resort. The location is beautiful even in winter and the views of the loch from the apartment are amazing. The village of Kinloch Rannoch is small but appealing with very welcoming cafe and a newly restored hotel serving meals and tea. For anyone who likes walking this is the ideal resort, as there are routes to suit everyone with forests, waterfalls, lochs and breathtaking views. Staff at the resort are really helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and activities. They offer a programme including an excellent watercolour class, whisky tasting and a guided walk. These are all free for residents and well worth doing. The apartment was well-equipped and very clean. The closed balcony is the best place to watch the changing light over the loch and Schiehallion. There is an extra charge for electricity and this can be quite high as the unit has storage heaters and a pretty old hot water system. We were pretty frugal and our bill was just over £32 for the week which is probably comparable with other similar resorts. You need a car to take advantage of the wider area but there is also a fantastic train ride from Rannoch Station to Mallaig via Fort William that you shouldn't miss.

Review No: 61 by Mrs Barat who stayed here on 14/02/2019 Language Flag

It was a very good stay and would definitely like to recommend and come back again. Though the place is in a very remote location and would recommend the property management to include a pick and drop service form nearest train or bus station and also an in house restaurant plus a club with a swimming pool facility.

Review No: 62 by Mr & Mrs Saich who stayed here on 09/02/2019 Language Flag

You have to check this Club out as there are steep steps going to most units - not good for average fit people. Depending on time of year especially winter months the cost of electricity is extremely expensive.

Review No: 63 by Mrs Mcglinchey who stayed here on 02/02/2019 Language Flag

Our week was very relaxing and comfortable with one of the best timeshare units we have experienced in terms of its spacious fully equipped home from home. The stunning views are nothing short of breathtaking. Ideal location if you love the outdoors. A car is essential to get around as the resort itself is remote with only a couple of hotels and small shop/post office in the village. Local trips taken by us were to Aberfeldy and Pitlochry for the day where we found great hospitality and a variety of unique boutiques with an abundance of quality Scottish products including some of the oldest distilleries in the country. Disappointingly the gym and pool at the nearby Macdonald hotel was not available to us as it is now run separately from the timeshare business although we could use the bar and restaurant. Everywhere we went we were greeted by a warm welcome. I would highly recommend visiting this lovely part of the Perthshire Highlands.

The resort is in an extremely attractive position, literally on the side of Loch Rannoch. The village is attractive and it is now home to the Dunalistair Hotel which offers top-class accommodation and food, although at a high price. The resort is very popular with dog owners because they are allowed in the apartments and there are many footpaths nearby. The only downside is the cost of electricity. The cost exceeded £50 for one week although we only had 2 heaters operating and never used the sauna. Nevertheless we are looking forward to another visit, perhaps this time in the summer!

The facilities were very acceptable for our dog walking break away in a perfect area. My only complaint was the electric shower. This was a quality newer unit, yet the power was next to non existent. On a cold wet time of the year, enjoying the country walks, a refreshing and cleansing wash would be expected. My own electric shower in my house is very powerful, yet this one struggles to remove shampoo and soap. The bath wasn't really an option as it would only suit someone of about 5'8 and slim build. The weeks stay was very enjoyable in all other aspects.

Review No: 67 by Mr Whitehead who stayed here on 05/01/2019 Language Flag

we arrived at 1530 to be met with a sign you can not check in till 1700 due to health and safety reasons, so you end up going up 84 stairs in darkness . A major safety issue. when we got to our lodge there was no heating on and it was warmer outside. Type of oil radiators not of sufficient to warm up tock from Saturday till Wednesday evening , to get the place warm . Note electricity is charged at 16 pence/KwHr. Our heating bill was reduced by £60 on checkout. our bill worked out £4600 /year. The lodge was at the top 84 stairs up. no safety rail at the edge lower down fitted. Well fitted out and very roomy for 6 people.

Loch Rannoch is a beautiful and peaceful area, thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet and also the scenery. Unit was clean and had everything needed, only problem was the number of steps up to unit.

Review No: 69 by Mrs Denham who stayed here on 08/12/2018 Language Flag

The resort was VERY quiet. We have been to Loch Rannoch before and there is an on going dispute with the hotel such that lodge visitors cannot use the leisure facilities. A shame they cannot sort this out. We called in advance to ask if we could check in early as we planned on only staying a few days rather than the week. We were told that would be fine as all housekeeping staff were leaving by 3pm for their Xmas party. We arrived by about 2pm and the receptionist was so unwelcoming she was almost rude! She practically laughed when I said I was checking in and said check in was at 5pm! After a phone call, she said the lodge was not ready but I asked to put some groceries in the fridge. Not only was the lodge ready, all staff were already away except the caretaker who basically just put the heating on. I don’t know what the fuss was about, but it was very off putting! Also we were only there two nights, have the electricity / heating off overnight and when we were out during the day. Two Evenings of electricity was over £34 I had no way of checking if this was correct, nor did they give me a meter reading on arrival, so I don’t know if they are making a killing on utilities, but staying a week will be over £100. So beware!! Doubt if we will visit again.

We are frequent visitors to Loch Rannoch at all times year, thanks to DAE. In December this time it was very quiet indeed but it’s a great place to get away and enjoy the comfortable lodge, the view, the walking and visits to Aberfeldy and Blair Atholl and House of Bruar. We were in Highland Lodge 7 which has been recently and beautifully refurbished.

Great place to unwind, excellent walking in area. Would recommend the walk organised the club as educational and not difficult - suits all. Thanks to our Guide Steve for that. Used Highland Tours for Land Rover Tour to see Deer and learn more about the management of the estates and wildlife - great to do and fantastic views when you get up high. We were in lodge well furnished and modern with excellent views over the Loch. Would Recommend

Review No: 72 by Mrs McCallum who stayed here on 09/11/2018 Language Flag

A remote area where a car is definitely needed and the 20 miles or so from the main road requires careful driving. Because of the elevated site, the views and the scenery all around are fantastic from all of the accommodation units but most of theunits have stairs up to them with some having a lot. This could make it difficult for some when handling luggage. The on site parking is handier for some more than others and walking on the steeply sloping surfaces is not easy. There are no on site facilities and the adjacent MacDonald Hotel gym and pool we were told were not available to us.( We did not enquire if there was a possibility of a rate for visitors ) The activities offered ( painting/walking/a clan night/whisky tasting ) were excellently presented and as all were free were great value. ! Opportunities for eating out were limited to the adjacent hotel and another excellent 5* hotel in the village with a very good cafe available during the day. Anything else was a drive of 10- 20 miles. There is a well stocked small store in the village for provisions. This is a good place for a walking / painting/photography holiday or a place to read some good books in beutiful scenery

Review No: 73 by Mr & Mrs Greig who stayed here on 02/11/2018 Language Flag

Very disappointing visit, no on site facilities eg Bar, Restaurant, Club Room, Pool. Yes we could use the Bar/Restaurant of adjoining Hotel but not very welcoming, told we could not use the Pool or any of the other Hotel Facilities. Town House type unit was comfortable but main problem was the 40 uneven steps up to the unit and then the 12 steps up to the living room... very dangerous taking luggage up and down, especially when wet. We got an upgrade from a single bed to a 2 bed with no charge which was very much appreciated. The Loch Rannoch area around the complex is beautiful none the less. Very reasonable electricity charge.

Stayed a number of times at Rannoch over the years and have always felt we could recommend the resort. Unfortunately this year we felt that standards in all aspects were not as good as they have been in the past. Wrote to the manager regarding this and have so far not received any form of acknowledgement.

Review No: 76 by Mr Ward who stayed here on 27/10/2018 Language Flag

The Lodge facilities are very good. We intended to eat in most nights, and it was a pleasure to do so. We used the internal sauna, this will cost about £10 a time. Minor niggle if £20 deposit to loan a hairdryer. This is a very remote spot, and the road to Pitlochry and shops and humans is very windy and slow. It suited our party as we wanted access to the hills to climb a Munro and a Corbet, and hire bikes to cycle around Loch Rannoch. The only pub within 5 miles is the Macdonalds hotel. The hotel prices are a little steep, and due to some dispute residents in the lodges do not have access to the pool in the hotel. Very silly really as we never saw anyone in the pool. Organised activities include whisky tasting, and a guided walk with Steve. The guided walk was very interesting, and most informative on nature, history, geography and a little bit of local scandal. You can also hire excellent bikes off Steve. The tea rooms at Rannoch Station and Corrour are brilliant. Make sure you try the cakes at Rannoch Station, and take a train one stop to Corrour. (No other public access) You can walk back from Corrour, it was a little wet underfoot in late October, but you will see the Cairngorns in full glory and isolation. We loved the location but it wont suit all

Review No: 78 by Mr & Mrs Green who stayed here on 19/10/2018 Language Flag

Good position overlooking the loch. Friendly and helpful staff. We opted for 3 of the organised activities available(guided walk, clan night and a watercolour painting class) which were most enjoyable. The only drawback in the studio apartment was the drop down bed which was a bit inconvenient to get out and put away every day. We also found it a bit small and needed to use the bed settee too to ensure we both had a good night's sleep. (We are used to a king sized bed at home which will account for this). The local area was excellent for walks of varying levels and the autumn scenery was fabulous.

This resort is a hidden gem. Although its a bit off the beaten track there are lots of beautiful walks nearby for all abilities and age groups.A short stroll takes you into the village which has a lovely cafe with the tastiest treats,a well stocked Spar and there's also a great play park for the kids. A beautiful 45 minute car journey takes you to Pitlochry. Lodge 36 itself has just been refurbished,it was beautifully furnished and fully equipped, a real home from home. We would definately recommend this resort and will certainly stay here again.

Review No: 81 by Mr Middleton who stayed here on 04/10/2018 Language Flag

As has been described by others this resort is in a remote area of the Highlands. It's position, overlooking Loch Rannoch, is fantastic. It is a great location for walking, fishing, etc. There is little to offer, other than that, in the local area. The nearest town of any size is Pitlochry which is 20 miles away. The resort was once owned and developed by MacDonalds. It seems that, after speaking with some owners, they broke away from MacDonalds around 2009 in quite acrimonious ways. The Loch Rannoch Hotel (owned by MacDonalds) does not allow timeshare owners use of their facilities. We did visit the bar twice and had a good meal. However, on our last night we went to dine at 7.45pm and were told that it was only available for residents after 7.00pm. Neither the bar or dining room were full so it seems the feud with the Timeshare owners continues. In the village is another restaurant, Edina's Kitchen. Far grander than it's name suggests and excellent food and surroundings. It's a shame that this animosity exists as it would be handy to use all the facilities available, even if at a small charge. We were in Otter 2 which had spectacular views, as do all the units. The unit was a little tired and in need of refurbishment but was still in a good condition. One of the better resorts that we have visited. The units that have been refurbished, generally 2 bedrooms, are fabulous. We would certainly visit again.

Beautiful Apartment overlooking the Loch. Will definitely be back next year. Didn't bother us too much but the Hotel on site (not the apartments) could not cope with (regular) coach parties and refused to serve food after 6.30pm to anyone other than hotel residents. Very little else in the area so be prepared!

Although clean and well equipped the fittings in the unit had seen better days. All functional but clearly kept together with bits taken from other units that have been refurbished. Great views across Loch Rannoch from the covered balcony. Plenty to do in the area. Well worth visiting. Try a return train ticket from Rannoch Station to Mallaig, one of the best scenic journeys in the world, through the UK's highest railway station and over the viaduct that features in the 'Harry Potter' films.

Review No: 85 by Dr Foster who stayed here on 28/09/2018 Language Flag

Fourth and last visit this year almost torpedoed by the (forgetful?) owner of the apartment we were exchanging into. DAE to the rescue! An excellent and very satisfactory solution worked out by the DAE staff - bravo! As usual, wonderful views and a lovely location, in itself and in its proximity to the things we like to do. Comfortable and pleasant apartment which was one of the smaller 1/4 ones this time. Like most 1/4s, a bit tight for four people (though KR 1/4s are certainly more roomy than some we've stayed in abroad) but ideal for two and it has everything required. The weather was 'variable', but this is autumnal Scotland and it can be brilliant, awful or something in between. We had a selection of all types and, in true autumnal fashion, often on the same day. When it's bright, however, the colours in the countryside are wonderful - dress appropriately for the occasion and the countryside will dress up for you: you'll see more than you ever could from behind a windscreen! We also had two enjoyable visits to Pitlochry Festival Theatre, a visit to the Enchanted Forest Light Show and the Explorers' Garden in Pitlochry and a trip from Rannoch Station to Fort William (went to Mallaig last time) and the train journey is worth the fare alone. All that plus walks, boat trips and eating out in Aberfeldy, Tummel and Logierait - all recommended. We'll be back!

Review No: 86 by Dr Foster who stayed here on 28/09/2018 Language Flag

Our last visit of four in 2018 and to a different unit each time. KRHC is, we should emphasise, our most favourite resort of all of those we have stayed in over the years - partly because of the location suiting what we like doing (walking and sailing in Perthshire) but mainly because of the quality and comfort of the units and the peace and quiet!. This unit was a two-bedroom one situated at the front of the resort overlooking the former watersports centre (and what a tragedy that the owners of that have allowed such a fantastic resource to fall into near dereliction - but that's another matter and isn't the fault of KRHC!) and is one of the particularly pleasant ones overlooking the grassy bank running down to the main road. Uninterrupted wonderful views (I don't count deciduous trees as 'interrruption') over the loch and a particularly spacious lounge and conservatory/balcony to enjoy it from. The bedrooms are downstairs and feature the now standard, for KRHC, wonderfully comfortable beds. The inclusive sauna was, again, unused due to the benevolence of the weather. It's impossible to get too much (in our opinion) KHRC-time!

The views from the lodge were fantastic and an amazing kitchen and living room area. Will return in next year or so. Nice sauna in the lodge. The wifi temperamental and lost signal for long periods. Its 25 miles from nearest town and 12 from a pub except for the MacDonald's hotel bar which is onsite. Village only has a shop and cafe. There is another hotel with a bar but very pretentious and no atmosphere or anywhere to feel comfortable to sit. Went in but came out straight away. The walking around the area is varied from straight forward to challenging. Stunning views.

Review No: 90 by Miss Williamson who stayed here on 14/09/2018 Language Flag

We stayed in a one bed apartment which made an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. The apartment is small and compact and although quite dated offered us the ideal comfort for our stay. Sitting out on the conservatory with views across the loch was the highpoint, even when the weather was a bit wet outside. This is our second visit and although we may not return to a one bed apartment (our own personal view that it was a bit smaller for our stay), we will certainly return to the resort. What it does lack is indoor facilities when the weather turns eg a pool on site.

An excellent location with stunning views from the accommodation. Lots of local walking opportunities & ideal for access to Schiehallion & the neighbouring ridges. Pitlochry, Aberfeldy & House of Bruar all nearby. Our unit was spacious & well equipped. Parking appears to be limited to one vehicle per unit, which may cause issues for two couples sharing & planning to meet at the resort.

For Scottish charm in a peaceful and picturesque location you can't do any better than stay at Loch Rannoch Highland Club. We were fortunate enough to stay in the Lochside Apartments which are ideal for those who don't want to climb the hill and as a couple in accommodation for 8 people had so much space and comfort. It is not every resort which will agree to allow owners to bring their dog but they do here. We took the bus to Pitlochry and the station is about 17 miles away down the Lochside road and so although fairly remote you are certainly not cut off from civilisation. We can recommend the café in the village and the tea room at the station but there is a mobile fish and chip van on Tuesdays. The Club also provided whisky tasting on Wednesday and the very interesting and informative Clan NIght on Monday. We would definitely go back again.

Review No: 96 by Mr Piloni who stayed here on 30/08/2018 Language Flag

A lovely quiet resort located very close to the Loch. The reception is located in the village before you arrive at the actual resort. As some have said, the décor and furniture is a little dated but perfectly adequate and clean. The self contained unit in Pine Marten 6, is dog friendly and had everything we needed, including a freezer. The enclosed balcony had sunny wide views of the Loch and was very relaxing. The bathroom looked fairly newly refurbished with a hot electric shower over the bath. There is signed parking for each individual unit. The grounds are covered in grass (which the loose sheep graze on!) with steps up and down from the circular road around the Loch. We popped into the bar which also overlooks the Loch and had several drinks sitting outside in the sun. Locally the village is very small with only one grocery/corner shop which has an ATM inside.(not always working) The resort is a good base for walking and is very quiet and tranquil. There is probably not much for children on site. Many good dog walking areas nearby. A trip to the Rannoch Station tea room is recommended (closed Fridays) and it is located to some lovely moor type area for walking. We spotted about 6 Deer grazing nearby. We can also recommend a restaurant called the Inn at Loch Tummel, about 20 mins drive away. We had 2 fantastic meals there. Due to road networks, the actual location of the resort does not easily allow access to the west of Scotland, but travel east gives you access to the A9. If you are after a quiet tranquil resort, we can recommend The Loch Rannoch Highland Club.

Third visit this year and, this time, to a 2 bed Highland Lodge. Haven't had one of these, larger, more modern units (though the others are excellent as well) : excellent quality and the larger sun lounge (in this particular unit) only enhanced the usual, superb, views. Weather pretty poor but this is Scotland and sometimes it happens! Too much to do in any case, providing one has the right gear and the right mindset! A car is essential but the best experiences are to be had on Shanks' pony! Only one criticism - the wifi: this can be fine in some units but this unit wasn't one of them!

Review No: 98 by Mr McCormick who stayed here on 11/08/2018 Language Flag

We have exchanged several times into this resort. In the words of the eternal wisdom of real estate, the top 3 things are location, location, location. Loch views are least if the weather is playing ball! Units are typically spacious and reasonably well furnished/equipped, if somewhat dated. There is a reasonably decent wifi speed on site although on this particular occasion, the unit we were allocated had virtually no internet service - which as it turned out was a real problem for us this time. I believe some of the units are piggy-backed off some others which can be a source of issue - as can poor weather according to site staff, but I am not sure on the technical basis of that comment. There are no facilities on site. If you are going there then it is likely for the outdoor pursuits within the stunning countryside or sit with your feet up enjoying the peace and quiet.

Il giorno del nostro arrivo la reception ha chiuso un'ora prima del previsto,abbiamo dovuto fare il check-in la mattina dopo, ci avevano lasciato le chiavi dentro l'appartamento con qualche istruzione preliminare. L'appartamento è spazioso, adatto a 4 persone, con il necessario per prepararsi da mangiare senza problemi. L'arredo si vede che è un po' vecchio,però non mal tenuto. WiFi poco funzionale, si prendeva solo in una camera ( in salotto no purtroppo ).

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We had a wonderful time at Loch Rannoch. Our lodge had amazing views over the loch and we spent most of our time when at the lodge sitting in the beautiful conservatory watching the wildlife and the changing moods of the loch depending on the weather at the time. There are good walks from the club itself and a local bus to take you further afield. We enjoyed trips on the trains also. There were some interesting activities organised by the team including a very generous whisky tasting, all at no extra charge. All the staff were friendly and very helpful with good local knowledge. We hope to return here and thoroughly recommend it.

Review No: 120 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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: 131 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: 132 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.

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.

Review No: 141 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: 143 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: 144 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.

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: 148 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: 149 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 .

Review No: 154 by Mr Stewart who stayed here on 11/01/2018 Language Flag

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.

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!

Review No: 161 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.

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.

Another excellent week at LRHC. The resort continues to improve with some excellent improvements with wifi and renovations. The area is stunning and will be returning in April.

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.
