There are lots of reasons to book Ruskin Lodges for your Argyll holiday accommodation. We're family and dog friendly, and include lots of 'extras' to make your stay easy and relaxing.  

Families can make use of a travel cot, high chair, potty set (step, trainer seat and potty), changing mat (and dedicated nappy changing area), baby bath, blackout blinds, socket covers, and children's cups, plates, bowls and utensils.

The kitchen features an electric hob, oven, dishwasher, extractor fan, microwave, full sized fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. We include plenty of mugs (big ones too!), coffee cups, plates (flat, side & pasta), bowls, cutlery, pots & pans, roasting dishes, glasses, cooking utensils and serving dishes. Kitchen basics like oil, salt, pepper and a starter pack of tea, coffee and sugar will be supplied.

42” TV / Blueray player (HDMI cable supplied), Roku streaming device for watching live, on-demand and catch-up TV (and you can log in to your Neflix, Amazon prime video, NowTV and Sky accounts), hi-fi with iPod dock, books, quality film collection & board games.

Two hand washing and hand sanitising stations have been installed in the kitchen and bathroom. They contain products that are EN14476 tested proving they kill 99.99% germs and are effective against coronavirus within five minutes. There are also lots of cleaning products for you to use during your stay.

We live just a five minute drive away from the lodges meaning we know the area like the back of our hands! We can offer lots of tips and advice ahead of your stay and are on hand if you'd like us to pop by and answer any questions. We have OS maps, booklets about local attractions and day trips, history books and tourist guides so you can make the most of your stay.

We are dog owners ourselves so know all the best walking routes and dog-friendly places to go for a meal or a drink. Many walks - like Puck's Glen - start directly from the lodge, with no need to get in a car or even cross a road. Dog bowls, a spare lead and spare poo bags are included.

Turning up late at night or journey delayed? No problem! We have a key safe by the front door so you can arrive at a time that suits you and enjoy a relaxed journey with no time pressure.

Superfast fibre has been installed to the lodges providing high and reliable speeds and allowing many devices to connect.

We are supplied by Mitre Linen, founded in 1946 in London, and granted HM The Queen’s Royal Warrant in 1955. Towels are large, thick and fluffy and linen is white, crisp and with a high thread count. All beds have an electric blanket and mattress topper and duvets and pillows have protectors.

We live just five minutes drive away so although we don't meet guests during check-in, if you need us for any reason, we can pop by and say hello!
