Relax by the lake or explore Scotland and the Trossachs on holiday at Lochend Chalets

You could make your holiday here at Lochend all about Lochend. Many arrive determined to explore the surrounding glens and bens, or to visit nearby Edinburgh and Glasgow, then spend all week cosying up in our comfy lakeside lodges and cabins. In summer, some spend their whole week sunning themselves by the lake, playing tennis, or simply blethering with friends over long, lazy meals. With the Nick Nairn Cook School just 200 yards from the chalets, wildlife in abundance, and our brand new bike trail and skills park, you need never even leave our tranquil shores.

However, Lochend lies almost exactly slap bang in the middle of Scotland, so it is a brilliant base for exploring the rest of Scotland – we think, the most beautiful country in the world! It may feel wonderfully remote once you’re here: nothing but swans, ducks and fishing boats to disturb your view across the lake to Ben Lomond and the Menteith Hills. But Lochend is only one hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow, 75 minutes from Glencoe, and only minutes from a myriad of lochs and bens, golf courses and biking trails, castles and distilleries in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.

Whether it’s your first time here or your 40th (some of our guests have been coming here since they were kids), we hope you’ll find this guide useful for trips close to home and further afield.

When you’re booking online, just add a note into the comments field about your interests, or about your group. We’ll then make sure, for example, that if you have young children, a cot, high chair, nite lights, kids’ cutlery and crockery and plug protectors are all in place for your arrival.
