TOURING DAYS IN SCOTLAND FROM LOCHEND CHALETS

Lochend Chalets lies as close to the centre of Scotland as it’s possible to get without a GPS and ruler! A brilliant base for exploring the best of Scotland’s cities and scenery, Lochend lies only 30 minutes from Loch Lomond and 60 minutes from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth. Dramatic Highland scenery more your thing? Then Glencoe is only 90 minutes north, while the East Coast’s pretty seaside villages and beaches and the West Coast’s magical wild isles are never more than a couple of hours away – well within a daytrip of the chalets.

EDINBURGH

Where to start? First, perhaps, by saying that while Lochend feels incredibly secluded, in fact, we’re only about 75 mins from the Royal Mile – or maybe two hours if you take the one-hour train from Dunblane or Stirling to Waverley Station

LOCH LOMOND

The famous ‘bonny banks’ lie only 30 mins drive from our chalets, offering beautiful walks, magnificent scenery and at its southern shores a shopping and leisure complex with restaurants, a visitor centre, cruise tours, and an aquarium

EAST COAST

While the West Coast has a wild, wind-lashed beauty and a string of magical islands, the East Coast wins every time when it comes to cute fishing villages and bucket-and-spade seaside towns – with no midges, even in summer!

WEST COAST

We’re only 90 mins from Glencoe, and 2 hours from Fort William and Oban, Gateway to the Isles. With the island of Mull only a 45-min ferry from Oban, that means even the most dramatic Highland & Island scenery is just a daytrip from Lochend

GLASGOW

It always amazes me that while you sit by the lake at Lochend, you’re actually less than an hour from the centre of Scotland’s biggest city, or just over an hour if you drive to Milngavie and get the train from there

PERTH

Only about an hour from Lochend, Perth has lovely galleries, a handsome semi-pedestrianised centre with great shops and cafes, and as a motivator for the kids, a brilliant swimming pool with flumes

STIRLING

Stirling feels more like a town than a city, with a cinema, a new leisure centre, a pretty pedestrianised centre and a cluster of old medieval lanes by the magnficent castle that dominates the skyline above the town

OBAN

The pretty harbour town of Oban is a very lovely 2 and a bit hour drive from Lochend. Passing by the Green Wellie Stop and the Gold Mine at Tyndrum then skirting round the edge of the beautiful Loch Awe
