    Beautiful little lodge house with a traditional Scottish feel.



    out of 10

    A very comfortable and relaxing environment in an excellent location. Many places of interest in close proximity. We had an excellent stay and would be happy to revisit at some point in the future.



    out of 10

    Dess Lodge is a lovely property in a good geographical location but, being alongside the main road, was sometimes noisy. There were just a few small issues but, on the whole, we enjoyed our stay in a clean unique property that was very comfortable. Very helpful owners.
