We stayed in cabin 16 which is located at the edge of the loch which benefits from the most beautiful views across the loch. We arrived slightly earlier than expected, and in order for us to get the keys for the cabin we had to go to the house of the lady who runs the park her name was Irene . Unfortunately she was not at home and the reception for mobile phones was very poor to contact her, but luckily we got through to her on her mobile and she was out somewhere. She kindly told us to just go into her kitchen to get the keys,
On our arrival at the cabin we went inside, it was a lovely wee lodge, which consisted 2 bedrooms , one which slept 3 in bunk beds and a double bed in the other, and one more bunk directly above the kitchen living area. Seating is limited to 4 people but the cabin sleeps up to six, it was quite cramped for the four of us but it was nice and cosy. There is a wee wooden settee for 2 people and 2 wooden chairs , I must admit these were extremely comfortable as they do have cushions on them. There is also a dining table to seat 4 people. The kitchen was small, not enough room for 2 people to cook. There was also a tv in the cabin but you would need binoculars to actually see what's on the telly. We were not planing on watching tv much but due to bad weather we found ourselves spending most of the time in the cabin. The other problem with the tv was that most of the button s had fallen off of it so you needed to use a pen to stick in the hole to turn the volume up and down and to switch the tv off. When we read the description on the cabin it mentioned that there were board games and Dvds . There were no board games only a large pack of cards which was fantastic as my husband is visually impaired . We also found 3 boxes of dominos. We found more enjoyment on the 3 nights playing cards than the dominoes. There was also a shower in the cabin, not very powerful but it does the job. The cabin was fully equipped in the kitchen department apart from having bottle openers for wine and beer, so I recommend you take your own. There is also a fridge freezer which is and under the bunker one. It was also lovely to wash the dishes and watch the ducks on the loch at the same time we managed one sunny day and spent some of it on the veranda looking over the loch . The only disappointment was there was nowhere to get a meal or some shopping in. Dalavich is a very small village , which consists of a community hall type bar grill restuarant/ pub, with laundry room which costs £3.00 to use the machines. And also a place to hire bike. This was all closed for the 3 days we were they apart from the laundry room. We went to the wee village shop hoping to get some food, we were given a menu, and they only had about 3 things to eat out of about 10 options. There are a few tables you can sit on to have a wee bite to eat. The shop is not up to much, more sweets that actual food, I think everyone there must live on tinned hotdogs . SoI would recommend doing a big shop before you arrive as its 14 miles one way and 20 0dd miles the other way to the nearest store. Also make sure you are topped up on plenty petrol as there are not petrol station either. I would definitely go back but I would make sure the next time it's in the season when everything is open.its not much fun when you are starving. My dog really loved it, she is 6 months old and she loved all the new smells in the woods and outside the cabin, fortunately there was a torch which is well needed as you cannot see a thing in front of you in the dark, which is great because you can see all the stars. If you sleep in the double room you can see the stars and the moon through the roof window. Overall we had a fantastic time in this lovely wee cabin.
