Umm… yes I know this is a web site about a log cabin but I do know that many who have booked in the past have also been searching for self catering cottages Loch Lomond in Scotland. By hook or by crook they have found Sandwood Lodge but were searching just as much for self catering cottages in Scotland. So to help others find this lovely holiday accommodation in Scotland I am unashamedly adding this page – but just as much to show some of the many kind comments left in a now full Guest Comments Book.
Additionally the Loch Lomond area is a destination known to most people through geography, song, poem and verse. BUT it is often not easily seen in many of the ‘search’ options offered by many web sites and in some it is part of Stirlingshire, in others as part of Argyll, Bute and the Isles and others as central Scotland.
Thank you for the wine on arrival – very welcome after a long drive from Derbyshire. Thank you very much for the use of the lodge. We will be back in Scotland for the Edinburgh Tattoo in August and will think fondly of Rowardennan on our way to our hotel in Aberfoyle.

“Thank you so much for a lovely weekend – it’s just what we needed. The lodge is clean and tidy and very cosy. We will be back in the near future” The Hamiltons, April 2014
“Such a beautiful spacious log cabin to spend in our first family holiday with our two children. And the grandparents.
Beautiful part of the world, with views so amazing and wonderful – absolutely breathtaking! We spent some time down at the water with the kids feeding ducks and with photographs as evidence the children will see how happy they were at this experience in years to come.
Thanks Simon for supplying such a great holiday cabin which was so clean and tidy.
We leave with special memories”

“Here it is – the last page in the book. Four years of providing wonderful holidays from everyone that visits this beautiful lodge and loch. This year we’ve had a magical visit to Tir na nOg, went wild at the Safari Park and went Continental at the outdoor market at Lomond Shores. We’ve sat on the deck in glorious sunshine and got to see the trees in boom – they’re alway empty in October. As usual on our last day we are very sad to be packing up but happy in the knowledge that we’ll be back again. Thank you Simon & Lesley for another fabulous visit.” April 2011.

“We had a fantastic time here in Scotland. The cottage was everything we had hoped for. The wine was much appreciated. The cabin is so cosy and all the little touches make it feel like home. The gondola ride at the Nevis Range was fantastic. …….. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful lodge. Will be going home with lots of lovely memories of our time here in Scotland” Catherine, Robert, Evelyn, Ken and Lesley, Cheshire. October 2010.
“Thought I’d send you a note to say how much we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandwood lodge.
Arrived home depressed at having to leave the place. We all thought the lodge itself was outstanding and beautiful, with all mod cons and everything you need for the stay. The location is awesome, with views you could not fittingly describe or imagine. My mother who came with us has not had a holiday in many, many years and will not fly – she was dumb struck by the beauty of the place. A holiday she will never forget.
As one time regular visitors to Scotland this surpassed previous visits due to the lodge and its isolated setting. Took boys fishing (caught a small trout), sampled the local cuisine, walked the walk, did Rob Roy to death – house, cave & grave, fully explored Trossachs, distilleries, lochs, boat trips. Even got photo of wild stag sitting watching us close to lodge. Absolutely fantastic week.” The Murphys
