About the property
Tucked within the forested hillside of a stunning private Highlands estate in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, River Hawk Lodge has a picture-perfect setting with beautiful views in every direction. Enjoying a secluded spot, the lodge is an ideal place for a family of four to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, slow down and reconnect with each other and the nature that’s literally outside the door. With free activities including kayaking and cycling on site too, there are many ways to explore.
The spaceRiver Hawk Lodge is a charming two-bedroom lodge that is equipped with everything you will need for a homely, cosy stay. Subtle design features include handmade Harris Tweed curtains and soft furnishings that are in-keeping with your Scottish break.
The open-plan, L-shape living area offers room for you and your family to spend time relaxing together. Get comfy on the plump leather sofa and armchairs, and settle down to watch a film – there’s an LCD TV with Blu Ray DVD and access to Freeview SKY channels to keep you entertained.
The kitchen overlooks both the lounge and the dining area, which has a table and chairs, so that you can keep an eye on little ones whilst you are cooking. It’s fully kitted out with pots, pans and utensils, as well as a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, to make your time away as easy as possible.
From the living area there’s a large, sliding, glass patio door that leads outside onto the balcony which faces north west and offers unobstructed vistas over to Loch Dochart and the surrounding mountains. The balcony has shading and there is garden furniture so that you can spend as much time outside as you like. If you’d like to cook a barbecue dinner one night, a gas barbecue is available on request and will be delivered to the lodge for you.
River Hawk Lodge has one bedroom with a king-size double bed and one bedroom with two single beds, with wardrobes and drawer space to keep all your belongings neat and tidy. There’s also a family bathroom with a bath with a shower over.
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 River Hawk Lodge where there is space to park your car.
SustainabilityRiver Hawk Lodge features low-energy, mineral oil-filled electric heating. Meanwhile, guests of all lodges 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.
