    Dess Lodge is a gorgeous hideaway in beautiful location. It IS very close to the road, and this did NOT bother us (it was noted somewhere in description) but it is something to take into consideration and extra care taken exiting the property by car. If you are looking for something cosy, warm and in the vein of Victoria's Royal Deeside, Dess Lodge is your place. The only thing missing was our crinoline skirts.

    Lovely property in a great location. Would love to stay here again. The only problem was 1 towel each wasn't enough, an extra one each would have been appreciated.
