Forests, mountains, lochs, sea, waterfalls – all are within a 30-minute journey of the venue.

The buildings

Our lochside Seal Cabin is amazingly photogenic, never mind the main Lodge building, the Stables, the Boathouse, the Greenhouse…

The Interiors

The main building at Woodside Lodge is an Arts and Crafts era building, and it is full of period details and features. Ideal as props or backdrops for shots and as individual as each shoot needs to be.
