A self-catering holiday home with character, in the heart of Scotland
The Lodge is an Arts and Crafts house which was built at the edge of the village in the early 20th Century for a local businessman. After the First World War, the house became a shooting lodge for the local estate and was requisitioned by the army during the Second World War. It was then bought by the grandparents of the current owner.
Since The Lodge, Blackford was made available for holiday guests over four years ago, we have been delighted to welcome guests from so many different countries.
In the last couple of years, guests came from far and near: as far away as Alaska and as near as Glasgow. We welcomed many families from Europe, and more visitors than previously from the USA and Canada.
Many guests came to Scotland for the first time and plan to return. Others returned to see more of the country. Some guests came to use the house as a base for visiting local attractions, some to visit friends and family in the area. Others came just to relax. Many guests visited Glasgow, Edinburgh, and scenic lochs such as nearby Loch Earn, and castles, including Glamis, Stirling and Doune.
Looking forward to welcoming guests over the summer.
