Sheila Jones – Culter Walking Group

“On behalf of the Culter 50+ walking group, I should like to thank all management and staff for providing excellent service and comforts on our recent stay booked for us by Lizzie Thomas. We all enjoyed our break very much indeed including all the evening entertainments. We shall certainly be back again sometime and would recommend you to other walking friends”

Liz Thomas – Organiser – Culter Walking Group

“Culter Walking Group has just experienced its first holiday which was so successful I feel compelled to encourage other groups to do the same. Nairn, with its wonderful micro climate, mix of coastline, woodland, countryside & golf courses makes an ideal base. I am going to plug an amazing hotel which is ideally situated & more importantly has a generous number of single rooms at no extra cost, a rare occurrence these days.

Lovat Lodge Hotel was the brain child of Dr Logie Bain, opened in 1968, purchased by Arthritis Care 8 years later as one of their 11 specially adapted hotels. Sadly with the inevitable cut backs all are now sold but Lovat Lodge was saved and is now run by a non- profit making Charitable Trust headed by Dr Logie Bain’s son. Yes it does have aids around to assist those not so mobile but it is also a wonderful place for anybody to stay to enjoy the excellent food, nightly entertainment & weekday excursions (optional) at a very reasonable cost.

My local over 50’s Group have been coming since we started 11 years ago and they still want to return after 15 trips! It has taken me all this time to realise what a super base it makes for walking groups & ideal to bring partners who are not walkers. There is so much of interest to see in the area & only a short walk from the bus stop.”

Margaret & Hazel,

Thank you for making our stay a happy one. We enjoyed your cheery service and hospitality and especially your wonderful meals. All best wishes.

Muriel, Agnes and Louise,

Thanks to all at Lovat Lodge for such a warm welcome and also to thank you for all your kindness shown towards us. The hospitailty was second to none and the food was first class. We hope to return in the very near future.


A huge thank you for the amazing day you had for my nan Ina on her 100th birthday. She was thrilled with all the effort you all made for her. She loves her trips to Lovat Lodge and no wonder, she gets spoilt rotten! Many thanks Jane X


How can I thank you enough for such a wonderful 60th birthday?! Lovat Lodge Hotel just keeps getting better and better. I don’t know how you all do it. Edward and I have loved every minutes of our stay with you. Thank you all once again, Love Carole XXXX


What a wonderful stay I had with you throughout Christmas and New Year. Thank you for all the gifts. I certainly enjoy using the silk sqaure wrap, strawberry mug, chocolates, body wash, bubbly, miniature Grouse and all the other extras you gave me. I wish all of you health, happiness and success in the future. With my love Kathleen
