We used Drumboy Lodge as our base, for our short stay trip to Scotland. The accommodation and surroundings are first class. Due to the hectic nature of our visit we never met the owner Gillian but her attention to detail was excellent

About the neighbourhood
Drumboy Lodge is set in a rural location. You can relax and enjoy the tranquil settling and the lovely views from your window or you can have an action packed holiday entertaining the kids ! Come and meet the animals on the farm ! We have cows, calves, horses, dogs and cats all waiting to say 'Hello'! There is a mountain of things to do for all ages within a short car journey from your holiday home. There are loads of information leaflets in the lodge, so no need to make up your mind until you get here ! You can climb Loudounhill from your door and there is a huge outdoor area with streams , trees, paths and a wooden bridge to explore ! Every one always comments that they sleep well here. I think it has something to do with the peaceful setting and the clean, fresh Scottish air !
