Summer 2023

Switch off, and escape to the Highlands!

With a world so entrenched in screens and digital content, our guests often comment on how wonderful it is to switch off and relax here at Woodside Lodge.  A quick Google suggests that searches for a ‘digital detox’ are up over 10% year on year, over 60% of workers check their emails on holiday, and that our increased dependency on our phones has a negative impact on mental and physical health. However… surrounded by mountains, lochs and forests, we see our guests quickly tune into nature as they spend time here on our estate.

Slowing down and spending time in green spaces has been proven to reduce the stress hormone (cortisol) and boost happiness. Add to that, incredible views, time spent exploring the area, delicious food and a 5-star service throughout, and every guest leaves feeling refreshed, relaxed and reset. 

It is simply magical and Loch Goil and The Lodge will always have a special place in our hearts.

TripAdvisor Review

Whether you are looking for a digital detox for two in our self-catered cabin on the Loch, or a catered group stay (12-24 adults) with yoga lessons, paddleboarding and wild swimming built in, we can offer all of this and much more.

Back To Nature is our version of Back To School! Autumn weekends are filling up fast – for any questions, queries or advice about staying at Woodside Lodge, drop us a call or an email and we will gladly help – 01301 703 173 or

Escape in style this summer.

There are plenty of ways to arrive in style to Woodside Lodge Estate! Our guests over the years have arrived by plane, boat, rail or road, so reaching our idyllic Scottish escape has never been easier.

One of our top recommendations? Travel on the Caledonian Sleeper train to make the most of your time with us. Guests board the train from 21.15 at London Euston, enjoying a glass of wine and delicious dinner as the train speeds through the countryside, before falling asleep in a cosy cabin and waking up as the train pulls into picturesque Arrochar & Tarbet at 07.08. Our Land Rovers will meet you at the station, and whisk you straight back to Woodside Lodge just in time for a full traditional Scottish breakfast beside the loch.

“This is a very unique, sustainable & romantic way to travel to Woodside Lodge on Loch Goil”
