    Beautiful area and just what we needed after a stressful year.

The property

Retaining a whole host of its original 19th century features, this charming period cottage is set within the private estate of Lanrick, less than 10 miles from Stirling.

Tastefully renovated, Golden Gates Lodge prides itself in its restoration efforts, maintaining a traditional yet homely feel to this truly unique, family-friendly property.

Upon entering through the side of the property, you are greeted with a well-equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher and traditional-style sink.

Stepping into the cosy living room area, picture curling up in front of the blazing fire after a day fishing in the nearby river with the last of the sunlight streaming through the sash windows.

Venturing up the spiralling staircase, there are two well-presented bedrooms, one large double and one twin room equipped with colourful bunkbeds.

The family bathroom continues to nod towards the property’s historic roots, offering a traditional-style bathroom suite with a modern twist.

Each bedroom boasts a view of the idyllic woodland surroundings, reminding you of the beauty of the Scottish countryside.

Relax and enjoy the sunshine in the garden area with the provided outdoor furniture.

Without even leaving the estate, there are plenty of walks to enjoy and the nearby river to fish in.

In just over a 10-minute drive, you and your family can visit the renowned Blair Drummond Safari Park, home to over 350 animals, roaming free in the 120-acre estate.

Venture into the Trossachs National Park & Loch Lomond to discover the Scottish wildlife and soak up the incredible panoramic views.

Ideal for all those history enthusiasts, the 19th century Golden Gates Lodge is a great family destination to Scotland’s ‘Gateway to the Highlands’.
