ACTIVITIES AT LOCHEND CHALETS
Lochend may be a great base for exploring Scotland, but there is a huge amount to do right here on the estate, without even getting in the car. For many guests, Lochend isn't just somewhere to stay, it's somewhere to be - a beautiful spot to relax in nature.
The lake dominates Lochend activities: it’s right outside your window, whichever lodge, cabin or chalet you pick. So, whether you’re sipping a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the Menteith Hills, spotting ospreys fishing in the water, picnicking on the shore, or heading out in our fishing or rowing boat, or even diving clad in your Speedos, the lake is ready and waiting. But there's plenty more to occupy you here, too. Browse the panels below for all Lochend activities.
WHAT TO DO ON HOLIDAY BESIDE THE LAKE
Away from the lake, but under a minute's stroll from the waterfront chalets, there is also the Nick Nairn Cook School, with its new summer resturant, run by our big brother, Nick. Running Thursday-Sunday during the summer, it offers indoor and outdoor seating and a family friendly menu.
Lochend is a wonderful place for families. In summer, the lake – very shallow for yards away from the shore – is always full of paddling toddlers and children with their fishing nets.
We have a play area, games room, tennis court, nature trail, mountain-biking trail and trails bike skills area.
I grew up at Lochend and have such happy memories of long, summer nights spent playing hide-and-seek and climbing trees with younger chalet guests when I was a child. So it’s always a thrill to see children roaming around Lochend today with oodles of newfound friends. Best of all, Lochend is a place where children and their parents can feel free.
