What to do whilst on your holiday in Scotland:

Birthplace of the Scottish Nation and cradle of early Gaelic culture, a region of majestic landscapes and dramatic history, spectacular coastal scenery and lochside villages – yours to explore when you stay at one of our holiday lodges in Argyllshire and Islands.
This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a haven for wildlife of all kinds and the setting for Scotland’s first National Park, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, a real magnet for walkers and cyclists taking lodge holidays in Argyllshire and Islands. A circular tour round Loch Awe provides an unforgettable day out – at its northern end are the romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle, possibly the most photographed view in Scotland.
Within easy reach of our holiday lodges in Argyllshire and Islands you’ll find Loch Fyne – source of the famous oysters and smoked fish. Visit the lovely Crarae Gardens or explore Scottish history at magnificent, turreted Inverrary Castle and the Auchindrain Township, where Highland life over past centuries is recreated. Tour the lovely, Gulf Stream warmed landscape of the Mull of Kintyre and don’t miss a trip to the picturesque harbour town of Oban, gateway to the Isles – Islay and Jura in particular are famous for their distinctive malt whiskies.

Absolutely beautiful location and lodges. The pool etc felt a bit outdated but overall lovely place. Not many facilities for younger children but would definitely return when my children are older. Michaela, Rating 4 out of 5, Oct 2015.
Great location. Site shop was a little small with limited choice. Anyone going should take a 'big shop' with them. Otherwise a great location and facilities. Daniel, Rating 5 out of 5, Oct 2015.
Overall, an excellent stay in Lochgoilhead Lodges. The scenery is stunning and you cannot beat the location. The staff were all lovely and extremely helpful. Kirsty, Rating 5 out of 5, Oct 2015.
Lovely week away with my husband and 3 year old. The accommodation was spotless and could not fault. The surrounding areas are beautiful and lots of family walks. The only complain I have are to do with the actual center. The food wasn't the best, over priced and poor quality especially Rustica, not worth the money...pasta was like slop and my husbands pizza was burnt! Some staff were very pleasant however we also experienced a particular very rude gentleman who refused to take a card payment at the Fireside bar and told my husband to use cash was broken! Bearing in mind you could pay by card at Rob Roy and the cafe. The indoor soft play area is very outdated with a lot of the machines not working! Jennifer, Rating 5 out of 5, Oct 2015.
We stayed in a lapwing comfort plus lodge. It was lovely and clean, with a stream running alongside it. The surrounding area is so peaceful and quiet which we loved. Stunning scenery all around us. We loved it that much we have already booked to go again next year!!! Angela, Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
Close to perfect for our family, we have a 7,6 and 1 year old. More than enough to occupy us all. Food was nice, views were breathtaking, staff were friendly and went the extra mile for us more than once. Would definitely return. John, Rating 4.5 out of 5, Aug 2015.
This was our 6th visit, such an amazing holiday location, so much to do and see. We stayed in the eagle lodge this time, which was superb, so much space. Already looking forward to our next stay. Thank you. Caroline, Rating 5 out of 5, Jul 2015.
Beautiful location, perfect for a relaxing break if that's what you are looking for (as we were). The grounds are very well maintained and a great site layout. We didn't partake in any of the activities on offer on this occasion but would definitely go back and do so when our little boy is older. The road into Lochgoilhead must have been resurfaced as this was far better than we were expecting from previous reviews read, our car has 19" low profile tyres (puncture or wheel buckle magnet on bad roads) and had no problems at all. The lodge was very nice, well equiped, clean and the hot tub was great. The staff were all friendly and the evening children's entertainment kept our two year old happily dancing and playing games until he was worn out. As previously stated in other reviews the village is remote so I would definitely advise taking your groceries with you. There is a well stocked shop on site if you forget anything and the pub food on site and also at the two pubs in the local village are very good and child friendly. We plan to return and would definitely recommend. Emma, Rating 4 out of 5, Jul 2015.
The setting is gorgeous , amazing location. The facilities on site could do with a bit of updating , some extra cleaning when it's busy. The Go Active programme is great , in busy periods I think there should be extra sessions and more choice. The Go Active Instructor Megan was amazing with the kids !

Reviews from other websites for Lochgoilhead Holiday Lodges

Another great holiday at Lochgoilhead lodges. Beautiful place and surroundings. Lots of activities to do although we were restricted due to lack of activities for under 3yr old. However our 2 yr old still had a great time. Will definitely be back.
Lots of space in the cabin and good layout although some parts slightly dated it was really clean and had everything we needed. We discovered quieter times for the pool which made it more enjoyable. Our children were the perfect age for the facilities (4 and 7 years) and they really enjoyed the entertainment in the early evening. We were sited near the main entrance and this seemed like a quiet part of the site so safe for our kids to ride on their bikes and play near the cabin. We would stay there again if heading up that way but I bet we wouldn't be so lucky with the weather next time!
Fantastic location, lovely lodges, facilities and club house are exactly what you need and is more than you could ask for for the children. We had an amazing time exploring the surrounding area, we went waterfall chasing which was right on our door step, we climbed our first mountain with the 4 year old in toe! Came up close and personal with some highland cattle, visited Inveraray a lovely quiet village with a castle and old prison was interesting but a bit spooky for the wee one!! Explored a dozen lochs and deserted castles. Then finished off with a glass of wine listening to the stream next to my lodge, was bliss from start to finish. It even snowed for us in Feb and was just so picturesque. This holiday is the type of place to go to anytime of year, the landscape is forever changing and is just beautiful. The resort is immaculate as was my lodge number 3. Everything was perfect .... will certainly return again hopefully this year.. Thank you
Beautiful location, great lodge with hot tub, pool, golf & soft play all fab- worth getting rover pass. Food in restaurant very tasty but service not the best when busy. On the whole a fantastic place for a family break!
Have been here many times this year, lovely place to relax and recharge, Staff are all lovely and helpful. Accommodation was beautiful, we have stayed in summer and winter when it was snowing and no matter what time of the year you go the caravan was warm.
Stunning location and perfect if you want to escape from it all and relax at the park and make full use of the facilities. For us and our 2 year old we wanted to use it as a base for exploring the wider loch lomond area and for this its probably not the best location as it takes a good 20 mins down the single track road to get from the park to the main road. Although the scenery and surroundings are magnificent that road gets tedious after a week... The caravan was modern, spacious, clean and quiet. Downside was that no basics were provided including towels which we hadn't realised. The shop on site or village shop were on hand to get all supplies from so not an issue but worth noting that you need to take all essentials with you! Overall nice relaxing park and we enjoyed our stay.
Very, very remote location, which may be ideal for many. Would not consider travelling here in winter if snow is forecast, unless you own a tractor, or at all if you don't like driving on minor roads/lanes. The pool is excellent, lovely and warm. The kids play area is a tacky though, with loads of arcade type machines which are of course not free. Some were broken anyway. Had an excellent meal in the local inn, but did not eat at the resort restaurant. Accommodation was great had everything we needed. If I were owners I would upgrade the kids play area, and in the premium accommodation consider betterSky packages for the TV beyond the basic free channels. I would stay here again if these upgrades were done, otherwise would I go somewhere else. Due to remote location this resort needs everything to be excellent as you basically are likely to be stuck there for the duration of any stay. Nice staff.
Fantastic holiday, plenty to do on site, food was very nice, staff friendly and attentive. The cottage was clean, spacious, comfortable. We would return again.
We had a lovely break away, and this is our 3rd stay at the village. The facilities were great, and the lodges are very spacious. There is also lots for the kids to do. There was a small criticism as our meal was terrible at the castle on the Saturday night, and the bed linens could possible be updated in the rooms. Apart from that we had a great stay and hope to be back soon.
Thus is the third time I've been too lochgoilhead and I've enjoyed every experience..tyr log cabins are lovely and spacious although they can be expensive some times
Excellent Food, Entertainment, Activities and Accommodation. An upgrade on the arcade and soft play could be beneficial but apart from that an excellent holiday.
This was our second stay at Lochgoilhead & we thoroughly enjoyed it. The caravan was immaculate and location and facilities are great. The only negative feedback I have is the food. There were 3 occasions while staying when meals were received with items missing/no drinks etc which had been paid for & when we chased it up, kept being told that they were on their way. After numerous queries, we still never received the missing items. Greater attention needs to be paid to checking menus so that staff know what they should be serving with each meal.
Beautiful location, tor mhor cottage, immaculate and spacious, go active well organised and professional. Evening entertainment for kids was spot on, the service in the rob Roy would be my only grumble but, hey your on holiday! Let it go :) beautifully located holiday park, scrumptiously clean site. Swimming pool and play area needs updating but does what it says on the tin :)
Had a brilliant time during our weekend at Lochgoilhead. The lodge was beautiful, and every bit the luxurious location it was advertised as. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would definitely return. The only point that slightly let the weekend down, was the poor quality at the Italian Restaurant - La Rustica. The food was tasteless, poorly seasoned, and there was little atmosphere. It was definitely not in fitting with the high end expectation set by the lodge. Other than that, the weekend was faultless.
Lovely holiday, but I think the pricing structure for the use of the pool etc was ridiculous. To be honest, when paying approx. £1300 for a week, I would have assumed that would have included the use of the gym, swimming pool, sauna etc. We didn't try the archery etc as again, the price for a family of 4 was massive. The same applied to the beauty treatments for example I would pay up to £30 for reflexology at home - so I would not be prepared to pay almost double at £50. A shame, as we would have used more on site facilities, if they had been sensibly priced.
A lovely weekend spent at Lochain cottage. Very spacious cottage, all 3 bedrooms having ensuite. Very clean and well maintained. Quiet location with amazing views, which we enjoyed from the hot tub? The cottage is away from main facilities however was just a short enjoyable walk along the picturesque lochside. Will definitely return.
We did like the holiday a lot but there were some things we were not so happy about. The lodge had no washing machine and no proper freezer, which would have been helpful. Privacy was also an issue as there were no nets/voiles or blinds so if the curtains were open, everyone could see and people were walking past our living room about a foot away. We were annoyed we had to pay for swimming - we have never had to do that. the passes for the other things were also expensive - £145 for a week, so we did not do them. The pub in the village was owned by the same estate who ran the lodges, and we felt there was really no getting away from them without driving right out - the roads were not the best in the immediate vicinity (which we knew about), so to some extent we were a captive audience. The facilities were very good and it was good having a coffee shop and restaurant/takeaway on site, and the staff were very good, so it is possible we would stay again, but would prefer if those things could be sorted (apart from the location!!)
Excellent facilities for the chilidren with lots for them to do, they never got bored. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, comfortable and meet all our needs. Beautiful setting cannot fault it, will definitely return.
We had a wonderful break, beautiful surroundings, excellent accommodation, lots of entertainment on park to keep the whole family amused
I would recommend this to friends and family. It was great for relaxing and the walks where amazing!!! My mum, dad, kids and I loved it and we will be booking back up again this year!
Friendly staff, excellent facilities even when the weather is not so kind with plenty to keep younger children entertained and the adults relaxed.
