Woodside Lodge on Loch Goil was voted Britain’s Best Restaurant with Rooms at the 2019 AA Awards. Having the highest quality wedding meal is one of the most important parts of the day and an area in which we are very proud to say we can achieve. The chef at The Lodge on Loch Goil will create a carefully crafted tasting menu based on your dietary requirements, including vegan, vegetarian or pescatarian.

We value ourselves on our versatility and offer a range of locations for your special day – our new pavilion with picturesque views, the Loch front under our spectacular birch tree, the ever-present terrace, the seal cabin, the orangery – the choice is endless.
