A. Generally, you can get entry to your property from 4pm on the day of your arrival.

A. Yes, you do. You can get a permit from the nearby Ardlui Hotel. The Boat Loch Lomond website is a great resource for all things boat and jetski-related.

Remember! There is free mooring for at Ardlui Retreat. Every other holiday park with Lochside access will charge you!
A. There aren’t many grocery shops within the vicinity of Ardlui Retreat; the nearest locations are Crianlarich and Arrochar, both of which are around 15-20 minutes drive away.

If you are travelling from the south, we recommend you do your main shop on the way in Dumbarton where you’ll find an Asda superstore and an M&S. So far we’ve not found a superstore that offers a delivery service.

Also, please note that the log cabins don’t have a freezer.
A. Ardlui Retreat is very child-friendly. Check out our kid’s adventure playground.

When booking, if you have any requests for travel cots, highchairs etc please let us know. We have a plentiful supply.
A. Sadly, we’re afraid not. We’ve contacted them all and none of them are prepared to come that far up the loch. On the plus side, it means you’ve got every chance of enjoying your holiday without seeing a single Tesco sign!

You’ll enjoy a trip to Crianlarich for some supplies though!
A. The FInnish BBQ Hut is an all charcoal affair. We do our best to ensure there is always some charcoal there but if you want to make sure then we’d suggest you bring some (as well as lighter fuel) along with you.
A. The hot tub is there for all residents of Ardlui Retreat to use.

What we have found however is that our guests are pretty good at sorting out use amongst themselves.
A. The BBQ Hut is for the use of all residents during their stay. Our guests are usually pretty good at speaking to each other when they are up there and it all generally works out fine.
