Westwinds is on a great position on Loch Fyne giving stunning views. The covered decking at the side is a great place to sit even when it's raining. Well equipped and comfortable. Newly fitted kitchen and bathroom are lovely! Great place for dark skies viewing of the stars on a clear night

The cabin is in a stunning location with a beautiful vista from the lounge. There is a small but picturesque beach, ideal for children and dogs. Westwinds was a comfortable and well appointed log cabin, ideal as a toring base for Loch Fyne region.

It is in a lovely position right on the loch on a large site with one other lodge. On the downside It is really too small for 4 people and is very close to the busy A83 which disturbed our early mornings.

Stunning location! We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. It had everything we could have wished for. We spent most evenings on the veranda overlooking the private beach and stunning views across the loch. Lots of amazing wildlife in the area and a very handy location to explore the western highlands and islands of Scotland.

Beautiful place, the views, sunrises etc are fantastic. The beach in front is just lovely to sit or walk on. Few other lovely beaches not too far. The local towns seem to have lost a lot their shops sadly. Good parking most places and mostly free! Lovely base to relax and unwind. We took our dog who absolutely loved it. Really friendly owners too. Read moreJust fab! Hide

We loved our New Year stay, thank you. The lochside location is tremendous and we were really comfortable there. We saw lots of birdlife incl. divers, curlews, eider ducks and lots more as well as porpoises and seals plus an otter on a drive out. Nearby, we had a couple of early starts to the beaver lochs and got lucky seeing one twice swim across Read morethe loch. There is a lot of road noise which may put some off but despite that, for us, we would love to stay there again. Owners friendly & helpful. Hide

Lovely setting with gorgeous views over Loch Fyne. Our only issue was the lodge being so close to the road and the sound of traffic in the early morning in the main bedroom.

Lovely area with plenty to see and great walking. The lodge is well equipped and the views are stunning. Gated verandah excellent to keep dog safe. Only downside is close proximity to the fairly busy road.
