Crianlarich, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Scotland
This elegant modern chalet supplies everything you need for a real luxury stay.

Step out onto your private decking on a bright morning, and the view across Loch Iuibhair (pronounced Ewar) to the steep glenside will take your breath away. Then look on the other direction and the view of Ben More will stop you in your tracks again. You will struggle to find a better view from an inland self catering holiday property in Scotland. It is simply magnificent.

Our five-star sleeping up to four-sleepers bring you the best of peace and indulgence - in fact, many visitors tell us they wish their homes were so well designed. The large lounge with feature wall and cathedral ceiling with wood burning stove opens onto a large decking; an open-plan luxury fitted kitchen with adjacent dining area, large king size double room with en-suite power showe...

Every morning when we got up and every evening when we returned to Pinemarten, we were transfixed yet again by the beautiful, ever-changing view. It really is something special. But the lodge itself is special as well, because it has been decorated and equipped to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable. We enjoyed using the grill when family came to visit, and watching DVDs borrowed from reception. Portnellan is very well situated if you want to explore the Trossachs and the southern Highlands, and venture over to the west coast. We had a lovely holiday, didn't want to leave, and very much hope to return.

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, I would absolutely agree the view from Pinemarten and in fact, all the properties on the Portnellan Estate are quite special. We are blessed to be able to live in such a special part of oor bonnie country. It was a pleasure to have you here and I look forward to welcoming you...

The view alone was worth coming to Portnellan for, and the lovely chalet was the icing on the cake. Such attention to detail, from quality bed linen to comprehensive instructions with maps for places to visit. Ideally placed for touring the area, Loch Lomond, Callendar and Iveraray were all within easy driving distance. The view from Pinemarten was breath taking and constantly changing, from pink skies at sunset to rainbows on a rainy evening. We also enjoyed watching the abundant bird life including Whooper swans on the nearby loch. We hope to be back in the near future.

About the neighbourhood
Having grown up at Portnellan I know of some great hidden gems in the area. Without giving too much away before you have visited there are a number of great adventures to be had at Portnellan. Towering above the estate is the famous mountain, Ben More. It is the highest of all the mountains in the Southern Highlands and is well over 1100 metres in height. Loch Dochart has an island which can be paddled out on the canoes and kayaks where you will find a traditional castle ruin to explore. Loch Iuibhair boasts good fishing and is a great loch for open water swimming. Ben More burn that runs through the Portnellan Estate has some great waterfall pools that can be enjoyed both in and out of the water.
