A real hideaway, this delightful detached property is ideal for a romantic couple looking for a secluded spot in the Scottish Highlands with plenty of local amenities and activities as well as excellent access to the whole of Scotland by road. Providing very comfortable and well-equipped accommodation, the lodge is located on the outskirts of a picturesque highland village in the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. On the edge of a natural woodland forest, with the Tarken burn running by, it is ideal for those wanting immediate access to lovely country and hill walking.

Amble along the old railway route or take a more demanding walk up the hill to get the most amazing views of this beautiful area which is dotted with lochs and surrounded by hills and glens. Always keep a camera at the ready – from the windows you may well catch sight of an osprey fishing on the loch, wild deer grazing in the woodland or a red squirrel feeding in the garden. Golden eagles have even been reported locally by hill walkers.

Anyone interested in watersports will find many varied activities on the loch and golfers have a huge range of possibilities from the lovely little 9 hole course in the village to the world renowned courses at St Andrews, Gleneagles and Loch Lomond which are all within easy travelling distance, as indeed are the Trossachs, Edinburgh, Perth, Stirling and Glasgow.
