Fish and trips: holiday lodges in Scotland


Fish and trips: holiday lodges in Scotland

Set in the Trossachs, amidst magnificent scenery where Highland meets Lowland, the 700-acre Lake of Menteith is a well-regarded rainbow and brown trout fishery in Scotland and is reputed to be the best location for fly fishing for rainbow trout and brown trout in Central Scotland. Only a short journey away from Glasgow & Edinburgh it is ideally located.

The lake is stocked weekly with 1000 to 1500 quality trout, and yields an average landed fish weight of over 2lbs. In 2011, the average two man boat full day catch was 5.8 fish for 13.9lbs oz.

With the fishing on the doorstep, our luxury waterside ‘A’ Frame Holiday Lodges are set overlooking the wonderful Lake of Menteith with views across to Ben Lomond. There are a number of small islands in the loch. On the largest, Inchmahome, is Inchmahome Priory, an ancient monastery. The priory served as refuge to Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1547. She was only four years old at the time and stayed for three weeks after the disastrous Battle of Pinkie Cleugh in September of that year.

The whole area around the Lake of Mentieth is perfect for everyone’s purposes, whether as a luxury hide-away or base to explore the local area, one of our log cabins in Scotland, or else a chance to explore one of the most beautiful parts of the Highlands. The cabins & lodges are a short distance away from the Trossachs National Park, the first national park established in Scotland and the fourth largest in all of Britain. The landscapes here are utterly stunning, taking in not only the towering and rolling mountains (known as Munros and Corbetts) but also the famous and magnificent Loch Lomond. If you can’t bear to be without your pet for your holiday, be they a young pup or an old faithful, this location could not offer more variety in tracks and walks, information for which can be found at the lodges in Scotland, on request to us, and from ‘InCallander’s’ detailed page on walks in the Trossachs. With a landscape so beautiful and so broad, it’s only right to share it with the family member who’ll love those rolling slopes the most!
