Information & FAQ

Arrival

Arrival is from 4 pm, and departure is by 10 am, unless otherwise arranged.

We’ll meet you on arrival and take you to your lodge to show you the ropes and talk about the area. Just knock on our door at the main house when you get here. (That is, unless it’s quite late, in which case we’ll probably leave you a key and see you in the morning!)

Facilities

Coin-operated laundry facilities are available on site, consisting of a washing machine and commercial tumble dryer.

Free parking is available to the rear of each lodge on the drive.

The site enjoys purpose-built loch-side access, by which you can reach our little beach. At the loch, you can fish from the shores or launch small boats and canoes.

Food and groceries

The lodges are self-catering, so you’ll need to bring supplies for preparing meals, especially if you’re staying with us between November and the end of March, when many local restaurants and pubs either shut or maintain shorter business hours. For more information about our fantastic local pubs and restaurants, see our Local Dining and Drinking page.

To support local business, you could pre-order provisions for delivery to your lodge from the local Well of the Seven Heads general store. They have a range of produce, local delicacies and baked goods. Please order from the shop at least 5 days prior to your arrival, informing them that you are staying at Great Glen Lodges, Kilfinnan, and of the name of your lodge.

ASDA online will also deliver to the lodges.

Guests travelling from the south can find a Morrisons and a Lidl in Fort William (about 45 minutes’ drive from our location). Guests travelling from the north will probably want to buy their provisions in Inverness (about an hour’s drive from our location) in Morrisons, Tesco or ALDI.

Pets

We are dog friendly, so up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome to come along on holiday with you.

A small fee of £5.00 per pet, per night, or £25.00 per pet, per week, is charged.

All we ask is that your pet is kept on a lead whilst on site and in the vicinity of the farm and is never left unattended in the lodge unless happy and secure in your own pet cage.

Location

Great Glen Lodges, Kilfinnan, can be found on the northwest shore of Loch Lochy, in the heart of the Great Glen. We are 26 miles from Fort William and 10 Miles from Loch Ness & Fort Augustus.

Getting here

Our postcode is PH34 4EB. Enter ‘Great Glen Lodges, Kilfinnan, PH34 4EB’ into your GPS/Sat Nav or online map service to get here. (See How to Reach Us for more detailed directions and travel information.)

Note that some GPS/Sat Navs might tell you that you have reached your destination when you get to Kilfinnan Farm. We’re a bit further on from the farm, however. Just carry on up the hill and along the track a little way until you reach the Great Glen Lodges sign at the top of the road.

Please also be aware that the last quarter-mile or so is an unadopted rough-track forest road. Though it gets resurfaced each year, it can sometimes be quite bumpy, so a bit of care needs to be taken. A normal car can easily negotiate the track, but you’ll want to drive slowly and not rush things.
