Description

The Gate Lodge is bright and cheery in the summer, warm and cosy in the winter and the view is simply spectacular. Guests come back year after year to enjoy it's charm.

It has a pretty, enclosed garden with a sheltered patio, perfecting for sitting in and admiring the view. It is all on one level, making it easy for families with young children or the elderly, and is equipped with everything you are likely to need, including free wifi. All the rooms are lovely but the sunroom is definitely a favourite!

Locally, there are wonderful walks, a new cycle path around Loch Leven, the ferry to visit the castle Mary Queen of Scots was famously imprisoned in, the RSPB at Vane Farm, the Lomond Hills on the doorstep and several farm shops, cafes and restaurants.

It's less than an hour to St. Andrews, Edinburgh, Stirling and Gleneagles and short drives to many wonderful day's out on the beautiful Fife beaches, adventure parks, bowling, a corn maze, deer farm, animal farm, Deep Sea

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Kinross is conveniently situated on the border of Tayside and Fife regions. So much see and do!

Tayside to the north has glorious mountains, lochs and forests and Fife to the east has pretty coastal villages and beaches. For a bit of city culture or retail therapy Edinburgh, Stirling, St Andrews, Perth, Dundee are less than an hour away and its just over an hour to Glasgow.
Perthshire is fantastic for walking, hill-walking, cycling or simply touring.

Away to the north west is the awe-inspiring wilderness of Rannoch Moor. En route there is Perth, lovely to stroll round with its parks and walks along the River Tay. Also en route in a pretty setting at the foot of Ben Vrackie is Pitlochry with its loch, dam, salmon ladder and Festival Theatre

Fife to east is most famous for golf at St. Andrews but the small coastal villages are so pretty and a joy to explore. Fife also has some great beaches - our favourite is Earlsferry.

Places to visit: Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh Botanic Gardens, Scone Palace, Falkland Palace, St Andrews Castle and Cathedral, St. Andrews Aquarium, Discovery Dundee, Scottish Deer Centre, Castle Campbell, Scotlands Secret Bunker, Deep Sea World, Blair Drummond Safari Park, Edinburgh Zoo, Rumbling Bridge Gorge, Falkirk Wheel, Loch Katrine and the Trossachs, Scottish Fisheries Museum, boat trip to Isle of May, and more.

Events/festivals: Royal Highland Show, Edinburgh fringe, Edinburgh Film Festival, Knockhill Racing Circuit, Cowdenbeath Stock Car Racing.

Kinross

The area is dominated by Loch Leven, a beautiful loch best known not only for its wildlife but also for its famous visitor, Mary Queen of Scots who was imprisoned on Castle Island in 1567. Take the boat across from Kinross on a sunny day and have a picnic or eat at the Boathouse Bistro on the loch shores. The new cycle path round the loch weaves through pretty woodland and farmland with RSPB Vane Farm and farm shops to refuel. Great, easy cycle ride! Kinross is a small market town with everything you are likely to need during your stay.

Easter Balgedie is the tiny hamlet where the Gate Lodge nestles beneath the Lomond Hills and is one of a series of small settlements along the east side of the Loch Leven, making up the parish of Portmoak. You can walk directly from the cottage up the hill behind for some fantastic views or walk from the cottage down towards the loch and maybe along to Loch Levens Larder for a cuppa. Watch the gliders above the hill and the paragliders jump off it.

Pop along to Kinnesswood (0.5km) to pick up your paper, loaf of bread, dog food, ice cream, etc, at the village shop. It's a pretty wee village with some lovely old cottages and the quaint Michael Bruce(the Gentle Poet of Loch Leven) cottage museum. It is also the start of the Michael Bruce Way, a scenic walk. There is a ceramic workshop where you can pick up some tasteful Scottish souvenirs and there is a lovely wee 9 hole golf course.

In Scotlandwell(2km) you can visit an old Well House and walk round Portmoak Moss, an ancient raised peat bog. The Well Country Inn serves tasty food.

At Wester Balgedie(0.5km) you can get a beer and delicious meal at The Balgedie Toll Tavern, pop into Loch Levens Larder or meander down to Loch Leven Heritage Trail.

In the cottage there are lots of maps and more ideas for walks and other things to do locally.

Local festivals: T in the Park at the old Balado airfield attracts thousands of revellers for a weekend in July, our own local Portmoak Festival is June fun and all are very welcome, Milnathort Folk Festival in March, Backstage at the Green in Kinross has gigs all year round.
