Strathblane and Blanefield
Things to do in Stathblane and Blanefield
Although the two villages are separated by the Blane Burn, you would be forgiven for thinking Strathblane and Blanefield are one place. Nestled at the foot of the rolling Campise Fell Hills, Strathblane lies southwest of the Blane Burn and Blanefield sits northwest. Just a 25-minute drive from our Loch Lomond Waterfront luxury lodges.
Places to visit
The Kirkhouse Inn and Blane Valley Inn are great places to enjoy a drink or some food. The Blane Valley Inn locally referred to as the ‘BV’, is, in fact, the sister of The Oak Tree Inn in Balmaha, situated next to us here at Loch Lomond Waterfront! The Smithy Gallery is also worth a visit for the art lovers amongst you.
Visit Strathblane Falconry for a unique family day out. Here you can take part in hands-on experiences, watch flying demonstrations and learn about the art of falconry. Open by appointment only, you must make a booking in advance to visit the centre.
Just south of Strathblane and Blanefield, Mugdock Country Park features castle grounds, a loch, a playpark and an adventure trail. With a programme of events and outdoor activities. There are onsite cafes, restaurants and shops there too. Call into the Visitor Centre beside the main car park for information and walk suggestions, and pick up your free map to help you get around.
And whisky enthusiasts should not miss out on a visit to nearby Glengoyne Distillery, where you can take a distillery tour and enjoy a whisky tasting. There is also a whisky shop, where you can pick up a bottle of Glengoyne to take home with you.Book Accommodation

My stay will never be forgotten'Just wanted to say a very big thank you for my wonderful stay, I have no words to describe the incredible comfort I had at the Cawdor Diamond Lodge, I just checked out today this morning from lodge 5, I do not agree that your lodge is a five star if I could I would call it a 100 star lodge. From start to finish, my stay at the lodge will never be forgotten it's special and unique and an amazing experience'
