Description

The Carriage Lodge is a property we are proud to say is second to none. Originally part of the coach house to the magnificent Arden House and nestling in its estate, a five minute walk will take you to the banks of stunning Loch Lomond.

The Carriage Lodge is the perfect self-catering property for larger groups of family and friends looking to experience a relaxing break in a beautiful location.

The original building was constructed in 1868, but internally the Carriage Lodge offers all the comforts you would expect in contemporary accommodation.

The Carriage Lodge offers a perfect location. Its setting is tranquil and peaceful but it also benefits from easy access to everything the surrounding area has to offer.

The property is accessed by way of a gated archway leading to a pretty courtyard area. Inside four lovely bedrooms can accommodate 8-10 guests in luxurious comfort and the stunning lounge is a perfect place for family and friends to gather after

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Argyll, the Isles, Loch Lomond, Stirling and Trossachs

This is the birthplace of Scotland, the cradle of its Christianity and nationhood, and the focal point of much of its dramatic history.
Here you can savour the atmosphere of Hebridean islands, the charm of rural villages and the natural frontier which separates the rugged grandeur of the West Highlands from the gentler beauty of the Lowlands.

Here too, you can trace the footsteps of heroes like St Columba, Sir William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary, Queen of Scots ... and of outlaws like Rob Roy.

These are lands where you can glimpse an eagle, an osprey, a wildcat, a fine antlered stag or even whales and dolphins. And if the fancy takes you, you can enjoy the spectacle of a Highland Games, the warmth of a traditional folk night or the flavour of a local food festival.

Scotland's first great travel writer, Sir Walter Scott, was captivated by the beauty of this fascinating area. In his best-selling poem, 'The Lady of the Lake', he wrote of the landscapes around Loch Katrine:

'From Kintyre to Killin and Tobermory to Tillicoultry, an open invitation awaits you in these heartlands of Scotland.'

The same is as true today as it was in Scott's time.


Arden

Loch Lomond is located in central Scotland and is well positioned for touring around the national park, the west coast and islands, the trossachs to the east, Glasgow (30 mins) and Edinburgh (90 mins) . It presents the perfect holiday location, set amidst one of Scotland's ”most idyllic and unspoilt areas, with the largest” expanse of fresh water in Britain and the backdrop of the mountains looming beyond.

It is also ideally situated for touring within Scotland with The Highlands to the north of the Loch, the West Coast and Islands a short drive away and Central Scotland, Glasgow and Edinburgh to the east.

“Definitely would stay again.”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2011

The Lodge was a great treat to stay in. Although there are other properties nearby, the Lodge is very private, with an extensive garden and very spacious, modern rooms. We stayed with a group of friends who all enjoyed the setting as well as the welcome pack goodies! The owners truly spoil you - all the basic food cupboard stuff is there, as well as some luxuries.... I won't spoil it! Thank you once again.

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2011

From the minute you walk into the lodge,it is very comfortable ,with all the mod cons ,set in the most beautiful settings,most pleasureable ,all the family loved it.

“Excellent Accommodation - Highly recommend it”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2011

Stayed with a group of friends and couldn't have got anywhere better. The house is beautifully decorated with everything you could need. Great location with only a 15 minute walk away from Duck Bay Marina. Would highly recommend this property and many thanks to Kenny (owner) for being so helpful.

“Stunning Loch Lomond Retreat”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2011

11 of us spent two nights at this beautiful self-catering house. The property is beautifully presented throughout, and also has lovely bedlinen, towels and excellent power showers. The garden is fabulous too. Very generous "welcome pack" also left for us, which was a pleasant bonus. If I had a negative, it's a silly one, in that the dish washer needs fixed very soon, as it kept leaking (and quite badly). All in all I would recommend this house to anyone, as it's a fabulous place to spend some time. Thanks to Kenny and Kathryn for everything. We'll be back :-)

Thank you very much for your feedback on The Carriage Lodge. We are so pleased that your group enjoyed your stay. Regarding the dishwasher- we have had an engineer have a look at it and it is now working fine. Thanks again.

“Excellent accomodation with comfort”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2011
