Lochend Chalets - Port Of Menteith

Self Catering

Lochend Chalets, Port Of Menteith, Stirlingshire, FK8 3JZ

    We have 1 Cedar Cabin that we let on a fixed short break basis throughout the year. Monday to Friday and Friday to Monday. Sometimes we have 'Last minute' (7 days prior to arrival) short breaks available - just call 01877385268.

    Waterside self-catering chalets, lodges and cabins, which offer a high standard of accommodation, are located in the heart of Scotland, on the southern shores of the beautiful Lake of Menteith, which is part of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. From your window you look across the Lake to the Menteith hills and Ben Lomond beyond, sit in comfort in the lowlands, looking out at the highlands!

    Steeped in history, this is a fascinating area to visit. Rob Roy and William Wallace both romped around this area and, touched not only rouges but by royalty! the infant Mary, Queen of Scots, was hidden on the biggest island on the lake, Inchmaholme. Great for Hogmany / new year.

    Our wildlife abounds, as we live in an area of preserved natural beauty, there are many birds of prey to spot, including Osprey who feed at the Lake. Mallard ducks have made a happy home here and provide us with much entertainment! But we also have fishing, mountain bikes, rowing, tennis, a games room and an outdoor play area if they more entertainment is required! Aberfoyle and Callander are our nearest villages and Stirling, with its castle, is a 25-minute drive away. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh are both an hour away.

    Lochend is a quiet rural waterfront estate, run by the same family for 45 years. Over 50% of our customers return and many come to love it, almost as much as we do!
