Information & FAQ
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 ring the bell 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!)
We’re in a rural area with poor internet connectivity, so our lodges do not have wifi, but the mobile phone towers in the area give most guests a good 4G signal.
Coin-operated laundry facilities are available on site, consisting of a washing machine and commercial tumble dryer.
Free parking for one vehicle is available to the rear of each lodge on the drive. If you’re arriving in more than one vehicle or a particularly large one, you may have to park outside the gate.
The site enjoys private access to the shore of Loch Lochy via stairs down the hillside. These stairs are steep, and there are bout 50 of them, so it’s good exercise! Take them at your own risk, but when you reach the loch, you can have a walk, take in the view or fish from the shores.
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 in February or March, when many local restaurants and pubs are either shut entirely or maintain shorter business hours. For more information about our fantastic local pubs and restaurants, see our Local Dining and Drinking page.
Guests travelling from the south can find Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi and a Marks & Spencer Foodhall 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.
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.
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.
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 (5–10 mph) and not rush things.
