About the propertyWhether you’re planning a Scottish Highlands break with your family or your closest friends, Black Kite Lodge is a spacious, but homely lodge that’s sure to delight you with its stunning panoramic views of Glen Dochart and the surrounding mountains. Set in a private, family-run estate in the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, this is a great choice for taking full advantage of the region’s unspoilt scenery that’s blessed with lush glens, forests and lochs.
The spaceThe first thing that will strike you when you arrive at Black Kite Lodge is the dramatic scenery and for this reason it is one of the most popular lodges on the estate. The entrance is off the balcony area which is furnished with a table and chairs, so you can take a moment… or two, to admire the vistas in all their glory before you go inside.
Indoors is a light, bright and airy open-plan living area which is a lovely place to spend time together whether cooking, dining or settling in for the evening in front of the television. The kitchen is fitted with everything you’d expect on a self-catering holiday, including a dishwasher and washing machine, while there is a dining table and chairs to seat you all comfortably.
Off the living area there is a bedroom with a king-size double bed and a further bedroom with two single beds, both with plenty of wardrobe space for your belongings. There is also a family bathroom which has a bath with a power shower over.
You will certainly want to spend as much time as possible enjoying your outdoor space and those views. Cooking al fresco on a warm summer’s evening is a great way to do so and a gas barbecue is available on request for you.
Guest accessOn arrival at the privately-owned estate on which the lodge is located, there is a reception area for check-in, before driving on to Black Kite Lodge where there is space to park your car.
Guests across the estate are asked to sort their plastics, glass and paper and deposit them in the recycling bins provided, whilst food waste can be recycled in the composting bins.
The estate is a rich habitat for local wildlife including deer, red squirrels and pine martens, as well as a host of birds. Bird boxes, bird feeders and bat boxes are positioned in the grounds to help bird and bat populations to thrive. You can also buy bird food from the on-site shop to fill up feeders and encourage feathered friends yourself.
If you’d like to help further with the estate’s sustainability programme, you can donate to adopt a tree which will be planted in a location of your choice. You can even purchase a plaque to commemorate the occasion or dedicate the tree to a loved one.
