Award-winning Cook School run by Nick, just yards from our lodges on the Lake of Menteith

Within the grounds of Lochend, in what was once the estate piggery, lies the acclaimed Nick Nairn Cook School, run by our big brother, Nick Nairn. Fun, informal, and fuelled by some of Nick’s favourite wines, the Nick Nairn Cook School offers a brilliant day out, with a huge variety of amazingly inspiring courses for anyone looking to improve their culinary skills – all just a minute’s walk from the chalets.

Even if you don’t fancy a day the school, it’s still worth popping into the shop, which is brimming with dangerously tempting chef-standard kitchen goodies, from pots and pans to knives and Thermapens.
