Property Overview
Property Location

The award-winning accommodation at Lochend, near Stirling is all set around the stunning Lake of Menteith, on a private 38 acre woodland estate run by the same family since 1974.

Widgeon, Teal and Mallard
are 3 semi-detached waterfront lodges each with huge glass sliding doors showing of the spectacular view over the lake toward Ben Lomond and the Menteith Hills.

These two-storey lodges have recently been extended towards the lake and have their own patio area with outdoor furniture. Teal and Mallard both sleep up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms. While Widgeon can now accommodate up to 8 people. The Nest is only available when you rent 'Widgeon', and is a separate building with a stunning bedroom with kingsize bed that enjoys spectacular views across the lake.

Close to the edge of the lake beside the A Frame Lodges are the newly renovated A Frame Luxury Lodges and the A Frame Cormorant Chalet which all have a furnished patio and a balcony so you can really make the most of the wonderful panoramic views of the lake and Ben Lomond beyond.

The Cedar Cabins have 2 bedrooms, sleeping 4 and are sympathetically located in a crescent shape around the shoreline to ensure lovely views of the lake through lawn and trees.  Just past the Cedar cabins, is the Pine Lodge which has 2 bedrooms and enjoys a woodland view. 

Larger groups of family or friends will love the charming white stone Coach House.  This is a converted stable sleeping 8-10 in 4 ensuite bedrooms and a box room, boasts a large sun lounge with plenty of comfortable seating and a private hot tub located on a separate area of decking outside.


If you can tear yourself away from this beautiful waterside location you will find that it provides a great base from which to discover the fabulous countryside of Scotland.
