What’s on for families this Easter by Loch Lomond?

During your break at Loch Lomond Waterfront in Balmaha, be sure to spend some time in your luxury lodge or chalet. Have a dip in the hot tub, take in the fresh air and lochside views, feed the ducks, geese and wildlife, paddle in the shallow waters of our private beach. And above all, enjoy some quality family time together. Each of our lodges sleeps 2 to 6 guests, but if you have a larger family group, you are welcome to make a multi-lodge booking. We even have some inter-connecting lodges, so that up to 12 guests can stay together.

As an alternative to our lodges and chalets, we also offer glamping accommodation in our welcoming shepherd’s huts. Each hut has a boutique bathroom, kitchenette and double bed. We have three shepherd’s huts, each sleeping 2 people. Families may wish to book two, or all three of the huts to accommodate a larger group. Please note that our shepherd’s huts don’t have hot tubs.

We have both pet-friendly and pet-free accommodation in our resort, so you can bring your four-legged friends along too!
