They’re treehouses – but not like those found at the bottom of the garden.
Set amid lush woodland on the banks of the River Teith in Perthshire, these five luxury sustainable treehouses at Lanrick offer a secluded Scottish wilderness staycation, for those eager to escape the tyranny of webinars and Zoom meetings.
Each has a distinctive interior, with kitchen/living area, a log burning stove, bathroom, outdoor bath or shower and 250 square foot tree top terrace with a BBQ.
Guests receive a welcome hamper containing local products upon arrival.
Open air pursuits include mountain climbing and mountain biking and boat trips on Loch Lomond…
The treehouses are located four miles from the Trossachs National Park, which offers a variety of open air pursuits, including mountain climbing and mountain biking, as well as wild swimming and boat trips on Loch Lomond. There’s also salmon and trout fishing available on the doorstep.
Owned and run by husband and wife, Simon and Louisa Dickson, the guest houses embrace a sustainable ethos, constructed wherever possible with timber grown on the property. They’re also built to near Passivhaus standard, and rely on air source heat pumps for heating and hot water, with log burning stoves (using their own timber) for additional heating
They’re a twenty-minute drive from Stirling and Dunblane, and under an hour by car from both Edinburgh and Glasgow city centres and international airports. Local attractions include Doune Castle, Stirling Castle and Deanston Distiller.
Expect to pay around £200 per night. The Treehouses at Lanrick open to visitors September 2020. For more details, visit pop over to www.lanricktreehouses.co.uk.
