“THIS PLACE IS AMAZING”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Ormidale over 4 days in September, and had the best time in the entire world! The owners were extremely accommodating in allowing extra guests to stay over on the Saturday who were unable to stay for the whole weekend, for a tiny fee, which was nice!! We found the house very easily from Glasgow; we took the ferry across and then took the scenic Loch Lomond Route home which I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND for the water and the hilly sights alone. The house is sooo big we/I definitely got lost a handful of times while exploring and trying to find rooms but that just adds to the magic of the place. The environment is so comfortable, and the bedrooms even more so. We spent the majority of the time hanging out and taking turns in the hot tub and although the heating in the pool was broken, it was hardly missed, if even at all. There are so many things to do here, and places to see and discover, that you will never ever be bored!! I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone! Thanks so much for letting us stay and for making my friends birthday the best it could ever be! We will most definitely be back!! 

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a beautiful place. Something for all here. Spent the weekend with friends for a birthday celebration. The dog just loved it! The kids had plenty to do with pool, sauna, hot tub, games room, bikes, tennis etc etc. Rooms spotless and comfortable beds. Felt like a Lord and Lady for the weekend. Only thing I would say is I thought the Aga was set a bit hot with no apparent shelf trays for roasting etc but that maybe just us not finding any. Highly recommend for a large party getaway. Thanks to all

“Best weekend ever!”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We visited Ormidale for the weekend for our 20th wedding anniversary with our family and friends (65-70 of us) at the end of May and had an absolutely superb time! We rented out all 4 properties along with the hot tubs and every single one of our party have been raving about it since we got back!

The properties were very well maintained, clean, comfortable and there was enough room for everyone to be together or if preferred, they could find some quiet time as the accomodation is so vast!

The location is ideal and facilities could not have been any better. We were very luck with the weather but even still, there are plenty of board games, the swimming pool, billiard room, etc. if you aren't so lucky and the hot tubs are so ggod that it wouldn't matter what the weather was anyway!

We really has an amazing time and with a bit of organisation, I am sure we will be back again in the very near future!

“Great place to stay for large group”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We booked this venue for daughters hen do and I must say we were not disappointed. The house is very well equipped and has everything you could possibly need. It snowed when we were there but we still used the hot tub which was lovely and warm. We took advantage of local caterers who came in on the Sat evening and cooked, served and cleaned up,after our meal, the standard of food served was great. The swimming pool is small however it is adequate for small groups and we used it several times over the weekend. This is a great venue for large groups as it caters for all ages. I would highly recommend. Thanks for a great weekend

“Beautiful house & incredible location!”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed at Ormindale House over a long weekend for my birthday this January, where had the most wonderful trip. 26 of us flew up from London, Bristol, Cornwall and the Cotswolds and descended on the beautiful Ormindale Estate, where we stayed in the main house. The trip was amazing from start to finish! Consisting of various relaxing activities.. from immersing ourselves in the hot tub with a glass of wine, to hiking around the nearby sights, playing multiple board games, indulging in home cooked food, discovering (and occupying most of) the local pubs to even attempting a game of snow tennis. There was lots of snow on the trip which just added to the atmosphere of the weekend and we had no trouble in getting to the estate considering the weather.

Ormindale House really is the most perfect location to get away from it all and spend some time with your nearest and dearest. The facilities made it easy to cater and look after such a large amount of people and the house was clean. Any queries or help were instantly sorted by Aniello and Elizabeth the estate managers! From firewood to wifi codes.. they were extremely helpful and lovely people.

All in all we will most definitely be planning a return trip again next year!

Thanks for a wonderful trip..
