Great lodges, warm, cosy with plenty or room. Hot tub and Jacuzzi bath are great touches. Exceeded expectation. If we were being really really fussy, we all agreed the pillows were pretty hard! We will be back, thank you very much

This is our second visit to Wildside, previously visiting over NY in 2014. This time we stayed in the brand new 'Eagle Lodge' with our 2 children. The Lodge is beautiful. Everything is brand new, good quality and very comfortable with wood burner and hot tub. We had a couple of mild teething problems and the centre staff sorted pronto....

I'm not sure where to start with the wildside lodges but they exceeded all my expectations and more. We arrived late at night and there was a letter left at reception with a map and the name of our lodge. We were staying in the dalwhinnie pheasant lodge. We arrived outside the lodge and it was lit up beautifully. We...

Thank you for your lovely review. We always provide cloths and scourer for each lodge and they are under the sink. I am very sorry that your lodge did not have this. It must have just been a mistake. If guests ever need anything just ask and we are happy to help.

When we got to our room there were flowers, shortbread and a wee bottle of whiskey. One of the staff came to show us what...

It's a shame that you decided to leave early. The hot tubs can take 4-5 hours to heat after being filled. This may take up to 8pm on the first night. If it wasn't heating you should have told a member of staff we would have checked the temperature for you. The heating in the lodge can be set up...

Graded 4 Star Excellent quality, by Visit Scotland. Located in the hamlet of Whitebridge, 9 miles from Fort Augustus and 24 miles from Inverness, the Highland capital, with excellent road, rail and air links. 200 Metres from Wildside Highland Lodges is a country pub serving delicious meals. Information packs in the lodges suggest a variety of places to eat out in the area. Wildside is a great place to escape life, it appeals to those who appreciate a haven of peace and tranquility in a wild and natural setting, rich in wildlife, which is yours to enjoy. Wildside offers a choice of seven categories of lodge accommodating from 1-6 people. The Riverside Lodges are all situated along the river and enjoy private lawns to the riverbank. The small One Bedroom Lodges are ideal for couples, situated in the centre of the grounds and are set well apart in large lawns. Guests can wander on the paths to the water's edge where there is a small beach, popular for barbecues, or a picnic on the riverbank. Our luxury Three Bedroom Log Cabins have open views to the mountains and are situated on the fringe of the holiday park in their own private grounds.
