Description

Escape to this exquisite location surrounded by spectacular scenery of lochs, mountains and waterfalls in the heart of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, and at the edge of Ben Lawer’s Nature Reserve.
Acharn Lodges are set in 30-acres for you to explore and enjoy, and are perfect for families, friends, couples and single guests. Seven of the properties are in the courtyard and offer comfortable, good quality accommodation with a choice of properties depending on your own requirements. Set back from the courtyard there are also two detached lodges Maple (UK5501) and Alder (UK5502) which are all on one level and ideal for the less mobile guests.
There is so much for guests to enjoy on the estate - have a game of tennis or basketball on the court, and the children’s playground has a picnic table where adults can relax and keep an eye on the kids. If you are an experienced fishermen there are three trout ponds where fly fishing with barbless hooks can be enjoyed on a catch and release basis. Salmon fishing is also available on the owner’s private stretch of the River Dochart.
There are lovely walks from your doorstep, pack a picnic and stop at one of the picnic benches around the ponds and estate where you can relax and make the most of the spectacular scenery. There is an abundance of wildlife to spot, have your camera at the ready to snap red squirrels, deer, pine martens and so many wild birds including ospreys. In the winter, the hills are perfect for sledging or skiing on gentle slopes, and spring and summer brings longer evenings to enjoy the wild birds and flowers, and with very little light pollution, enjoy the stars in the night sky.
The attractive Highland village of Killin is within walking distance along a quiet pathway where you will find bars, cafes, bistros and restaurants, shops, a 9-hole golf course and the spectacular Falls Of Dochart. Killin plays host to events throughout the year including the Highland games and a fireworks display on New Years Eve.
This part of Scotland is steeped in history and legend. Acharn was once owned by the McNab Clan and there are many other historic sites and buildings to visit close by including Finlarig Castle.
If you enjoy the great outdoors this area provides walking, cycling and hill walking. Various water sports can be enjoyed on Loch Tay, with kayaking and white water rafting nearby, Highland safaris, or sample the ’water of life’ at a whisky distillery!
Rowan (ref UK5507), Maple (ref UK5501), Alder (ref UK5502), Pine Cottage (ref UK5503), Poplar (ref UK5504), Oak (ref UK5505), Beech (UK5506), Ash (ref UK5508) and Elm (ref UK5509) can be booked together to accommodate up to 34 guests.

Perfect if you want to plan and prepare that special celebratory meal. This area is located away from the main accommodation so you will not disturb those seeking a quiet time. Supermarket deliveries can be planned and waiting for you on your arrival (by direct arrangement with the owner). Shops, pubs and restaurants 1 mile.

About the local area

Loch Lomond is the single biggest expanse of inland water in the British Isles. The broad island-dotted shallows in the south gradually narrow into deeper water surrounded by steep sided mountains dominated by Ben Lomond. The loch is ideal for sailing and water-sports and there are some beautiful walks.

Talk a gentle stroll through Queen Elizabeth Forest Park or Balloch Castle Country Park and visit charming lochside villages and sandy bays. There really is something for everyone. If hill walking, cycling, boating, golf, wildlife watching, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing or mountain biking are your thing then this is THE place to go!

Nearby to the north is The Trossachs National Park, with heather-clad peaks known as `The Highlands in Minature'. This place includes the Crainlairch and Ben Lawers mountain ranges, which are amongst the highest in Scotland. A true haven for keen walkers and hikers. For more relaxing activities visit one of the many historic buildings in the area or take a guided bush craft tour, try bird watching, or do a spot of retail therapy. The Trossachs is a wonderful area to visit and no trip to Scotland would be complete without spending some time in the area.
