Description

No more than 15 metres back from the lake, Cormorant is a two-storey “A” Frame Chalet with stunning picture window views from the open-plan kitchen and lounge – and upstairs bedroom – over the Lake of Menteith.

Tucked away beside a lovely wee burn that runs out of the lake towards the Forth, Cormorant is probably the best chalet at Lochend for wildlife spotting, as early morning along the burn is your best chance of seeing an otter. The corner of the lake in front of the chalet is also a favourite haunt of our resident heron.

The patio on the grassy bank between chalet and lake has a picnic table with heather beds on either side. With bird feeders and nesting boxes all around, wildlife is most definitely on your doorstep… ducks included!

Kitchen

The kitchen in Cormorant looks out across the open-plan living room/dining area, with fantastic views over the lake. Solid oak units have a fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, electric hob and oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, Nespresso machine, cafetiere, scales, food processor, and all the utensils you need.

Living / Dining Area

As with all our lakeside lodges, views are everything in Cormorant. The open-plan lounge has leather sofas staring right out over the lake, as well as a large flat-screen TV, dining table, and lots of handmade bits and pieces produced right here at Lochend, such as the coffee table, made by my husband, Chris.

Bedrooms

Cormorant has three bedrooms: two upstairs, one downstairs. The downstairs bedroom is a twin room overlooking the forest at the back of the chalet. Upstairs, there are two cosy double rooms with Kingsize beds, one with French windows onto a balcony with wonderful views over the lake, the other across the landing looking out onto the forest.

Beds are all made up with fresh linen for your arrival.

Bathrooms

There is one downstairs bathroom in Cormorant, with a Whirlpool shower bath and Power Shower.

Parking

There are spaces for two cars at the back of the chalet.
