Welcome to our Luxury Pet Friendly Holiday Cottage in Scotland
Welcome to East Lodge, our luxurious loch side self catering holiday accommodation near Loch Lomond in central Scotland. This is truly a place to relax and to get away from it all. Just sit on the deck, or take the steps down to your own beach and observe the continuously changing colours on the Loch. The cottage sleeps 6 people and pets and dogs are very welcome. The cottage is in a wonderful location with its own beach, ideal for fishing, sailing and watersports and in a superb location for walking and cycling.
Spectacular sunsets will be your daily treat, enhanced by the flight of the ospreys, golden eagles and other spectacular wildlife. For the Twichers there is a rich variety of bird life, both woodland and aquatic and you’ll catch deer and owls in your headlights after dark, (so drive slowly). For those who like to stargaze there is no light pollution.

Situated within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, your lochside cottage is in an area of outstanding beauty and enjoys fishing rights to the Loch, (seatrout, brown trout, rainbow trout and salmon, pike, etc). Cast a line from your own beach or just read a book, you will not be disturbed by anything.
Bring your bicycles, the tracks start at your front door and give you access to a vast network of on and off road cycle tracks. If you don’t have room to bring them you can hire them from just along the road.
