Lying on the southern fringe of the Scottish Highlands, a few miles from Callander, famously known as the Gateway to the Highlands and close to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, is Muir Estate. Here, within the estates 188 acres, you will find privacy, peace and tranquillity for 11-16 of your friends and family.
The Lodge and Bothy are a unique blend of Scots/Nordic architecture and design, apparent from it’s traditional vernacular silhouette, Scots stone and Scandinavian open plan layout, sliding floor to ceiling windows, which allows light to flood in and radiate comfort. The Danish Dinesen Douglas Fir flooring creates a cool warmth and is toasty on the toes with or without the underfloor heating, which is throughout the property.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and want, with a range style cooker. Enjoy the fruits of your labour in the large dining room with a log burning fire, it’s the perfect cosy environment to toast the evening and have some fun.
Step outside onto the patio, which surrounds the Lodge, and enjoy your breakfast al fresco, and say good morning to the wildlife. Afterwards take a strole down to the loch, through the woods, or wander through the Christmas trees (wellington boots required), go and say hello to the resident sheep or deer that Alick farms. You might even see him with his 6 working sheep dogs Patch, Moss and Ben, Kim, Tess, and Meg. Due to the elevated position of the estate, at the end of every wee walk you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Ben Ledi, Ben Lomand, the Campsie Fells or the Gargunnock hills. The views are truly epic and you forget that you are not far from civilisation but yet feel completely secluded, immersed in nature and tranquillity.
If you fancy going further afield, Callander, the Trossachs and Loch Lommand are all just minutes away on the doorstep, or do some sight seeing in nearby Stirling, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth. When you get back, soak away any aches and pains in the bubbling Jacuzz hot tub, If you want to have a more rustic meal, venture across the garden and get the wood burning on the bespoke built Pizza Oven and BBQ where there is plenty room for a banquet to be cooked over the flames.
Once the day is over you will be sure to get a sound night sleep in the super comfy beds with sumptuous linens, tried and tested by our guests at the 5 star Woodcroft House and receive high praise. The Bothy and the Lodge together sleeps 16 adults/family. In the Lodge there are 5 bedrooms which sleeps 12, (1x Super King/Twin with single sofa bed, 2x Super-King/Twin, 1x Twin, 1x Adult Bunk-Bed with trundle) The nights are still with just the sound of the owls in the distance. Please go to the accommodation tab for more details about room layouts.
If your party is a little bit larger, the Bothy can be rented out as an addition and sleeps another 2/4 with a King-Size room, and double sofa bed in the lounge. It has it’s own fully equipped kitchen diner/lounge, and log burning stove. Attached to the Lodge by a covered walkway, you can just nip across and join your friend and family.
