Staycations are the new vacations and spending your holidays in your own country has never been more attractive. They can save you travel time, they are better for the environment AND you can discover some gorgeous places close to home that you never knew existed!
So whether you are looking for luxury, a trip packed with adventure, or a place to simply escape and get away from it all… plan your perfect Scottish staycation here in Ardlui.
From ‘Munro bagging’ (hill walking in Scotland) to jet skiing, we have everything nearby that any adventure seeker needs. Within our beautiful national park we have lots of accessible hilltops just waiting to be explored. There are 21 Munros (a mountain over 3000 feet) including the famous Ben Lomond, Ben Vorlich and Ben Venue. As well as 19 smaller mountains such as The Cobbler, a popular family climb. Just remember to always follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and behave responsibly when enjoying Scotland’s great outdoors! (link to www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot).
If you prefer two wheels to two feet, there are many spectacular cycling trails around Ardlui and the Loch. Getting on your bike is a great way to get out and explore the countryside while also benefiting from a little bit of exercise too! You can spend a leisurely afternoon riding through the forests on a family-friendly route or if mountain biking is more for you there are many more challenging terrains to try. Just ask us about bike hire and accessible routes.
Out on the water
And with a body of water as beautiful as Loch Lomond right in front of you it’s impossible not to be tempted to take the plunge. Whether you are simply going in for a bit of wild swimming or if something with a powerful engine is more your cup of tea, there are so many ways to make the most of your time here by the water. We have lots of water sports options on offer so just give us a call or have a look at the water sports page on our website to find out more (Link to watersports page/blog)

We even have the option of hiring our private chef while you’re staying with us, so you don’t even need to worry about making a meal. It will all be taken care of.
