The Lodge, Blackford

The Lodge, Blackford

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 two years ago, we have been delighted to welcome guests from so many different countries.

In our second year guests came from far and near: as far away as Australia and as near as Dundee. We welcomed many families, of two and three generations, from the south of England, Canada, the Netherlands, France and Italy.

Many guests came to visit Scotland for the first time and plan to return. Others returned to see more of the country. Some guests came to celebrate, amongst other things an engagement. Young people came with their parents to visit Universities and consider their options for higher education. Others visited to relax. Many guests visited Glasgow, Edinburgh, and scenic lochs such as nearby Loch Earn, and castles, including Glamis, Stirling and Doune.

We welcomed guests for the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles Hotel and in future years hope to welcome guests attending T in the Park at nearby Strathallan Castle.
