We enjoyed a wonderful week in the Golden Oak with there being 4 of us, and two dogs, and we had lots of walks in the surrounding site. The staff at the site centre are very helpful, and the bounty of freshly baked bread to order was a delicious option. The cabin was spacious, we had lots of fun trying to keep the woodburner alight, perhaps the flu needed cleaning, but, we seemed to have issues with it. Anyway, the ensuite bathroom was wonderful, with floor lighting and stone tiles, and the complimentary bathrobes and products were very good. We had a lovely surprise of two Bonio dog biscuits waiting for our dogs along with a couple of poo bags for our use, of course we brought our own with us anyway. The kitchen was well equiped with microwave oven and dish washer as well as fridge and conventional oven . Strathyre is well equipped with cycles to rent if you wish to use them and lots of paths which you can walk along from the site. It is beautiful, we heard the owls calling their mates at night, and we saw wildlife as we walked up the woodland paths. It really is a very exciting venue, where you can chill, or be active, and join in with the various activities hosted by the staff. The shop provides basic's you might want, and luxury treats you might not know you wanted... altogether, well situated to go visit outwith the site the local places, Calendar having a few shops and two stores, Tesco and the Co-oP where you can get most things you might need during your stay if you haven't already brought them with you. It is by far dramatic and beautiful in equal measure, see the sun setting over the hills, or watching it rise , and the majesty of the shadow and mist over the trees and hills from the side of the loch...is awesome, breath taking. My favourite venue, and I look forward to returning in the future.
