How to make a booking:

The method to make a booking is very easy – if you need to select several days then click on the starting date on the calendar, then click on the end date. If you need to select one day, then you should click twice on the date you need. The dates you select will change to show a black header, rather than green. Scroll down, and change the number of persons to show the number of beds you require (if you want to book the entire facility, please book the maximum number of beds available per lodge).

Scroll down a little further and complete the form with the information requested: name, email address and phone number. You have to enter a message – this proves that you are not a robot (don’t laugh – it’s for real…) and gives us any further info needed; “Double bed please”, “Double for me and Paul can have the bunk room”, or “We will take the whole place please” being some examples. Then click on “Book Now”.

If you have done it right you will notice a message saying “Your request has been successfully sent. Please wait for approval.” That will generate an email back to you to confirm the process has worked, plus send one off to the Lodge Booking team. They will confirm as soon as they are able to. If you have made an error just let them know, and they can cancel the booking, and while you are doing that you can re-book the correct dates or lodge making sufficient notes so that they know which booking is correct.

If you don’t have a computer then it’s the old fashioned way – ring Yvonne and Graham Cargill.
