"JUST PERFECT" September 2014

Priceless Week at Birchwood Lodge celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary It was a total getaway, with a home from home feeling with everything you need even a Canadian canoe which we enjoyed from the private beach. The sauna and hot tub was brilliant and we made full use of them. Our stay was that good we did not want to leave. Would love to return :-)


"PLACE OF OUR DREAMS"   September 2014

We visited birchwood on the last weekend of August and were met with glorious sunshine which luckily stayed with us for the whole weekend! 
The log cabin is lovely set just back from the loch and is so peaceful. We enioyed the small private beach area secluded from the wind we were able to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful views across the loch. The facilities in the cabin were just perfect, it was our first experience of a hot tub and sauna and boy did we love them!! The double shower was also a nice touch!
Everything for us was just perfect we both describe the whole experience as a dream as we saw some breathtaking views and lived a life of luxury for just a few days! 
Thanks to ali also for the wine biscuits and milk and all her communication, although we didnt meet her she made us feel very very welcome! 
Wed recommend this place to anyone its so relaxing and romantic and in a beautiful setting. We hope to be back at some point and for longer than 3 nights! 
Definately recommend 200%!



We had a four night stay at Birchwood and it had been a long time coming having booked it some 7 months before our stay. After a difficult couple of years for various reasons, the lodge proved to be the perfect getaway. You will not tire of the hot tub and the Sonos sound system is a cracking bit of kit. Other than a short trip to Glasgow this was my first 'proper' trip to Scotland and this country really his a true beauty to behold. The owner Ali and her family were in residence whilst we were at the lodge, and a warmer welcome we couldn't have had. Loch Tay itself is quite and during our stay we were able to get up close and personal with this water and with the help of Ali and her boys we took away a 'never to forget' experience of this overwhelmingly beautiful loch.

I suspect we'll be returning to Scotland in the future!


"FANTASTIC"   15th July 2014

Just got back yesterday after a 4 night stay and it was truly beautiful. The lodge is stunning and the amenities are top class. We had 3 glorious days of sunshine but even in the rain whilst bubbling away nicely in the hot tub after a sauna was in no way shape or form disappointing. Alison and her family have gone all out to make sure your stay is perfect.......and it was. We ventured out to Killin and Kenmore (this was the only time we seen other people) which are lovely places to stop for a bite to eat and a wee dram! The private beach and canoe was fabulous, we spent a whole day there just chilling with a bit of fishing thrown in. If you are looking for a place to unwind and do as little or as much as you like this is the place to visit, truly breathtaking. We will most certainly be returning and would like to say a massive thank you to Alison and her family for sharing Birchwood Lodge with us. Kerry & Lee xx
