Here are some reviews, testimonials and feedback from previous guests at Reuben’s Highland Retreat:
We just spent a fabulous 3 nights at Morar dog friendly lodge. The lodge itself was immaculate and beautifully decorated with “designer rustic” appeal! The owners have clearly put a lot of love and attention into making it a home from home which caters for your every need. The beaches on the doorstep are absolutely stunning with pure white sand and turquoise water and the view from the lodge patio across to Skye is perfect to enjoy a sundowner and the incredible sunsets.The only sound is the tweeting of the many birds and the lapping of the waves. We didn’t want to leave!
After booking up for May last year and not being able to go due to lockdown, we finally made it up for the weekend. Stayed in Loch Ness and by the time we arrived it was pitch black. Once we put the heaters on it only took 10 mins before the whole lodge was lovely and warm. It was very clean, the kitchen was very well equipped, and the beds nice and comfy. Woke the next morning and what a sight to see from the window. We were very lucky with the weather. Although there was 10 minute spells of rain here and there, most of the day was dry and bright! We will absolutely be booking again for next year and cannot wait to return!
We had a lovely stay at Loch Morar! Recommended by my friend Lina. We stayed the first week on November and the weather was kind, so each day we could explore the area. The beaches are second to none and lovely walks to the waterfalls in glen Beasdale and up loch Morar. The chalet is so warm and cosy and well equipped….definitely warm enough for winter weather. It was scrupulously clean and comfy.
Thankyou Claire Steven and Reuben . We had an amazing time, just wish it was longer.. next time. Loch Morar lodge was brilliant. Very comfortable, clean and had absolutely everything you need. Not to mention amazing views and the tranquillity. Highly recommend.
Very enjoyable break for my wife and I. Loch Lomand lodge was spotless and very well equipped. Could easily have stayed much longer. Good location, no crowds (unless you count the flock of geese in the next field). Would definitely recommend this and plan to stay with you again in future
Stayed in loch lomond lodge for a week. Can't recommend high enough. Everything was spot on. Lodges have been done to a high standard. There's everything you need in them. Lovely views out to the sea! And cows in the field right in front of lodge! Peace and quiet ,beautiful scenery ! Lodges are 8 minutes from Mallaig , straight B road lined with white sandy beaches! Don't miss Camasdarach beach , you can't see it from the road,it's a slight turn off to the left and has a small car park , you walk through a lovely path and it's a slight to behold!! Loads of lovely wee places to visit nearby. Or you can travel further afield ,we got the ferry from Mallaig over to Skye ,you can also go to the small isles from Arisaig 5 minutes down the road. Fort William is 50 minutes of you fancy some shopping. Watch out for the Harry potter train! We were lucky enough to stop and take pics on the way!!! Can't recommend this accommodation highly enough! Don't forget to say hi to Bobby, the loveable dog who stays in the field next door!!
We had a lovely stay in Loch Morar. The accommodation inside was great, having been remodelled, and very clean. My kids are getting too big now (16 and 11) for a return visit - they won't fit the beds! - but would recommend for younger families. Thanks again.
We have just returned after a 3 night stay and wish so much we could have stayed for longer. The lodge had absolutely everything you could need and we were so impressed with the high standard set. Small touches and decor were just lovely. Spotlessly clean and fresh. Location is just perfect for exploring the stunning beaches in and around arisaig. We were in the Morar lodge and the views were spectacular, especially at sunset. Local restaurants were great but also having the option to cook in is appealing also. We will definitely be back and hopefully soon. Thanks.
Loch Morar lodge was perfect. spotless, everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday. 5star rating. Looking forward to returning and hopefully have better weather 😎
We had the best long weekend for our staycation, the lodge was spotless and had everything you needed. Great location to explore everything really! We loved Camusdarach Beach 😍 and would love to come back soon 😊 thanks for having us!
Great stay in these lovely lodges. Great location, immaculately clean and well equipped for everything you need for your stay.
As I write this review I am sitting looking out to the magnificent view of the hills of Skye on our final night in the wonderful Loch Morar holiday lodge . We have had a wonderful holiday and while the weather could have been better we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here in beautiful Arisaig. The lodge is very comfortable and fully equipped with anything you might need . When we arrived the lodge was spotlessly clean. One suggestion from my wife a mirror in the bedroom for doing her hair We will be back before too long
A wonderful stay as a group. We took up all three lodges. Everyone delighted with the high standard of fixtures, well equipped, and high level of reassuring cleanliness at this challenging time. I have just booked Loch Morar for my family and black lab in September, can’t wait to return. A cosy base in easy reach of the wonders of Morar.
Loch Morar cabin was lovely with a great view. It was very clean and modern and cosy. We hope to come back. Thank you.
Well equipped, spotlessly clean lodge with beautifully laundered bed linen and towels, and extremely comfortable bed. Very quiet and tranquil with beautiful views, we love this area and enjoyed the many coastal and hill walks nearby. Twenty minute walk to Arisaig no problem, even in the dark with torches. Enjoyed our stay and imagine this would be fabulous in the summer. Not bothered by the Harry Potter theme, but expect kids love it! Found the cost of heating etc pretty expensive, metered systems seem a little outdated, but maybe not such a problem in the summer. Great tv system and excellent WiFi. Enjoyed our break away from the gloom of this covid year. Thank you.
First time here and it was a real treat! We love wooden houses and Loch Ness lodge outdid our expectations. It provided a cosy, welcoming bolt-hole from the wind and rain (it's October after all!). Everything was in spotless condition and the Star Wars Theme kept us smiling the whole time - as did, incidentally, the owner! We loved the new bathroom fittings and enjoyed uninterrupted sleep, without even a hoot from the wooden owl in a neighbouring garden. Came here by public transport by the way - worked out fine.
Stayed here from 1st-5th September 2020 with my husband, sister in law and Angus the poodle. We stayed in Loch Morar and were blown away by the cleanliness and comfort of the lodge. The beds and linen were cosy and comfortable. We all slept like babies! The lodge had everything you could ask for and the view we had from our living room was stunning. We’ve never seen the silver sands of morar and it didn’t disappoint. Took our breaths away! Location was fab, couldn’t say a bad word about our trip in anyway shape or form. 5stars from us and we will be back!
Just returned from a 4 night stay in Loch Ness lodge, it was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. The weather was perfect for exploring this beautiful location. It is close to sandy beaches, coastal walks and the lodge faces west so also rewarded with beautiful sunsets at the end of each day 🌅
A fantastic week with all my family in the three lovely lodges. Great location, stunning views and excellent accommodation equipped with everything you need. The attention to detail and hospitality was exceptional. Thank you
Just back from our 2nd visit (since 2018) to Reuben's Retreat and had another great family break. Managed to get 4 days of great weather, location very relaxing. Took up the 3 lodges, enjoyed some good social family evenings, felt safe & secure on the grounds of the retreat. Some marvelous scenery to view from the 3 lodges. Lovely inlet bay for family to enjoy only 10 min walking from retreat with, silver sands all near by. Lodges are comfortable & spotless. Must be the air of the west coast as managed to get great restful sleep each night. Life seems to be more laid back up the west highlands Local restaurants, cafes in Arisaig and Mallaig starting to open up again. Staff make you welcome with measures in place to keep you safe - no hesitation in recommending this as an ideal family holiday . Slightly too early to venture over to the islands as they were only starting to open up when break finished.
