This page contains important information that you need to know when booking your stay.
By making a booking with us you are agreeing to the Boreland Loch Tay (the Owner)’s Terms and Conditions which are outlined below.
The Booker acknowledges that he/she is authorised to accept the following Terms and Conditions on behalf of all Guests and that all Guests are aware of the booking Terms and Conditions and have agreed to be bound by these terms and have acknowledged the following:
The maximum number of people who will be staying at the Property during the booking period.
The booking Terms and Conditions shall be subject to Scott law and time shall be of the essence.
The Booker has agreed that they will act as principal and always has absolute liability for all the Guests.
The Booker certifies they are over 18 years of age.
The Booker and the Owner acknowledge that these Terms & Conditions form the entire agreement between the Owner and the Booker and where any of the booking Terms and Conditions are deemed unenforceable then all other parts of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and operation and shall be enforceable between the parties.
The use of the accommodation and facilities are entirely at the risk of the Guests.
The Owner accepts no responsibility for injury, loss or damages to the Guests, their belongings or their motor vehicles. Guests must make a full risk assessment of their use of any equipment on the Property, including but not limited to infant and child equipment.
The rental of the Property does not include or guarantee the availability of additional sporting or entertainment activities, which may be available to be booked separately with the Owner.
The rental confers upon the Booker the right to occupy for a holiday, as mentioned in the Housing Act 1988 Schedule 1 Paragraph 9 and any equivalent or similar provision under the laws of Scotland, and the Booker acknowledges that the rental granted by these Terms and Conditions is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy or protected tenancy or equivalent or similar tenancies under the laws of Scotland will arise.
Unless on a pre-agreed catered package, the rental is on a self-catering basis.
All bedding is included; however, towels are not. The latter can be rented at £10 per person.
Bookings and Payments
Payments can be made by credit/debit card or bank transfer.
To confirm a reservation a deposit of 20% of the total booking amount is payable.
The booking will only be confirmed once the Owner has received the deposit from the Booker.
The remaining balance must be paid no less than 8 (eight) weeks prior to the Guests’ arrival date.
If a booking is made within 8 (eight) weeks of the arrival date, then the full amount is payable.
All group bookings (10> guests) are subject to a £500 Security/Damage Deposit.
***For Exclusive Use Bookings such as weddings and events where the whole site is rented the balance is payable 12 (twelve) weeks prior to arrival.***
The Owner will endeavour to send to the Booker full details of access and directions to the Property 1 week prior to arrival, together with a reminder to pay the Security Deposit.
All cancellations must be in writing.
Once a request has been received the following time lines and payments apply when cancelling the booking for groups:
More than 8 weeks – 20% of the total booking amount
Less than 8 weeks – 100% of the total booking amount*
For exclusive use of the whole site bookings like weddings, large groups events, etc:
More than 12 weeks – 20% of the total booking amount
Less than 12 weeks of arrival date – 100% of the total booking amount
Bookers are strongly advised to take out holiday and/or travel insurance (which includes cancellation insurance covering sickness and unavoidable reason for cancellation) prior to making a booking.
To secure a reservation a 20% deposit is required. The deposit paid for group bookings is non-refundable in the event of a cancellation.
Once a balance is paid in line with the timelines outlined in the Bookings and Payments section, if a customer decides to cancel, the fees outlined in our Cancellations section apply. As balance payments become non-refundable in the 8 weeks prior to booking commencement we strongly advise guests to ensure they are able to stay with us prior to making the payment and/or to insure against unavoidable cancellations.
Arrival and Departure Times
Arrival times: Anytime after 4:00PM
Departure times: by 10:30AM unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Owner.
Should a late check out make us liable for extra costs (e.g. compensation to the next booker) we reserve the right to pass on these costs to you.
Free parking is offered on our premises for the duration of the stay at the booker’s own risk.
No refund is given for an early check out or no show.
Responsibilities and Damage Deposit
The number of persons stipulated for the Property, as advertised on the Owner’s website or literature, must not be exceeded under any circumstance.
Only the number of adults, children and infants agreed between the Booker and the Owner at the time of booking may occupy the premises at any time, day or night, unless the Booker has received written permission from the Owner prior to the rental.
The Booker must ensure that the property, its surrounding area and contents are used in a proper and careful manner.
The Booker is also responsible to take reasonable care of the Property and ensure that the Property and all equipment is left clean and tidy and any furniture or bedding which has been moved is returned to its original place.
Rubbish is to be disposed of in black bags and placed in the blue bins found outside within the enclosed bin area.
All Guests must take outdoor shoes off at the front door.
Damages and Fees
All damage must be reported to the staff on duty.
The Booker is responsible for any damage caused to the property and its contents by improper use or through accident. Any damage to the outside and inside of the property, fixtures, fittings, furniture or cooking equipment will be charged to the booker in all cases.
In the event of loss or damage being discovered during our check-out inspection which has not been reported, we reserve the right to deduct from the damage deposit the cost of repairing, replacing or making good the loss/damage.
Please note that the paying of the Damage Deposit does not limit the Booker’s liability for loss or damage to the Property. You will be expected to pay the full amount of loss or repair.
If the cost to rectify the damage caused or loss incurred exceeds the value of the damage deposit the Booker agrees to reimburse Boreland Loch Tay with the balance outstanding on demand.

The Owner cannot accept a change of rental property or details of a booking once the booking deposit has been received. However, occasionally the Owner can accept an alteration of dates, notwithstanding any obligations incurred if a change of dates is requested within less than 8 weeks of a Booker’s arrival date.
The Owner aims to ensure that information is accurately conveyed on the website. Any changes to the Property and its facilities will be notified to you as reasonably practical. We cannot accept responsibility for any changes or claims to the area amenities mentioned on our website.
Any complaints must be notified in the first instance to the onsite manager or another member of staff immediately, so that they can investigate the circumstances and take any necessary action. In no circumstances can compensation be made for any complaints that are made after the date of departure, or where you have denied or prevented us or our agents the opportunity to try to put matters right during the Guests’ stay.
Occasionally accidents do happen, and any losses must be paid for. The Property will be checked and cleaned before the arrival. Should you find on arrival any damage or non-working items you will notify the onsite manager or another member of staff immediately, so that matters can be rectified.
The Owner has the right to access the Property at any time during the rental, after reasonable notice has been given by the Owner, or without notice in an emergency.
Loch Tay Water Access
Guests are more than welcome to use Boreland Loch Tay’s own private beach. However, for safety reasons and to prevent trespassing, the booker must first seek permission from the staff on site prior to use.
There is a sign posted path to this private shoreline, which will be pointed out to guests as required. If in doubt over the location of the private shoreline, it is the responsibility of the Guests to ask the Owner’s staff to show them the location.
There is no Loch access available to Guests between Boreland Farm’s own private shoreline and the public shore in the village of Kenmore. All other points of access to Loch Tay in between are privately owned and under no circumstances are Guests permitted to use any of these Loch access points.
Failure to adhere to the above conditions will result in the loss of the Security Deposit.
Noise and Antisocial Behavior
Noise included but not limited to live music, amplified music through a speaker system, singing and shouting is not permitted between the hours of 11pm and 9am.
Use of group BBQ and bonfire areas is not permitted between the hours of 12am and 9am.
Any form of antisocial or threatening behavior towards staff, other guests or members of the public is completely unacceptable and not tolerated.
Should the aforementioned happen, or if groups are found to be causing a disturbance of any nature in the Fearnan village, it will result in the loss of the Security Deposit, as well as, if the circumstances require it, the groups being reported to the appropriate authorities.
We reserve the right to adjust prices quoted on our website, other adverts or on details about the Property at any time. This will not affect any prices we have previously confirmed with the Booker.
Smoking and Vaping Policy
We have a very strict no smoking and no vaping allowed in any of our Properties.
Evidence found of either smoking or vaping or if the fire alarm is set off by doing so will result in the loss of the whole Security Deposit.
Additionally, if at the end of the Booker’s stay, during the check-out inspection it is discovered that our policy was not respected the loss of the whole Security Deposit applies.
While we are pet lovers ourselves, we operate a no pets allowed policy in most of our accommodation, for the comfort of some of our guests who may have allergies.
Should you wish to bring a pet please contact us in advance.
This policy also ensures we maintain our high standard of cleaning in our properties for the enjoyment of our guests.
As a result, pets are not allowed on the grounds of or inside the properties, unless the Booker has received written permission from the Owner prior to arrival due to unavoidable circumstances. Should the Owner grant such permission a £25 cleaning fee applies.
If at the end of the Booker’s stay during the check-out inspection traces of pets have been found, it will result in the loss of the Security Deposit.
If the Booker is found to have breached this policy during their stay, the Owner reserves the right to terminate the booking without notice, refund and forfeit the Security Deposit.
The Owner cannot accept any responsibility for any items Guests leave behind in the Property. The Owner will endeavour to locate the lost item(s), if contacted by the Booker within 5 working days of departure.
If lost property known to belong to the Guests is found, the Owner will inform the Booker and agree the means to return it, at the expense of the Booker. Any items for which the Booker does not make return arrangements will be disposed of after 7 working days of notification.
We operate a strict no adult entertainment policy.
Boreland Loch Tay has several properties that can accommodate different types of parties at the same time which are not limited to hen or stag dos only, and for this reason we cannot allow or make provisions for adult entertainment.
If the Booker is found to be in breach of this policy, the stay will be terminated on the spot without notice, refund and with the forfeit of the Security Deposit.
