Karma Lake Of Menteith : Scotland’s Hidden Gem Lake Hotel
Quintessential Scottish experience on the shores of Scotland’s only lake, Lake Menteith, in the heart of rural Stirlingshire.
Karma Lake of Menteith is a breathtaking lakeside boutique hotel in Stirling, Scotland. Fittingly named after the lake upon whose banks it is perched, interestingly, Scotland’s only natural body of water called a lake (all the others are called lochs). Located within The Trossachs National Park, Karma Lake of Menteith is easily reachable from the major cities and international airports of Glasgow and Edinburgh, which are approximately an hour from this Scotland’s little hidden gem.
Offering warm and unbeatable Scottish hospitality, accompanied by breathtaking views of the lake, Lake of Menteith oozes rural charm and a unique atmosphere of timeless elegance in a lovely old building that was originally built as a Manse in the late 18th Century.
Featuring 18 rooms, the deluxe rooms at Karma Lake of Menteith boasts fabulous views of the lake and beyond to the picturesque hills and mountains. If you are looking to get up close and personal with the lake, the superior rooms are located on the ground floor and feature large windows that offer fabulous unbroken views over the Lake, with the added bonus of being dog friendly, perfect for your four-legged friends to enjoy.
A Quintessential Scottish experience would not be complete without a traditional country pub. The hotel’s on-site pub is located in the bright and spacious conservatory directly overlooking the Lake with a large wooden deck and terracing along the waterfront. Oak beams, a huge open fire paired with the picturesque views create the most cosy ambience.
Adopting a farm to table approach, with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and seasonal produce the pub offers delicious dishes that reflect the rich culinary heritage of the region. In fact, the trout on the menu comes fresh from the lake itself. The lake is also renowned for its world-class trout fishing. If you happen to be visiting in the summer months, relax on their sun terrace and experience the unique lakeside setting. We highly recommend watching the sunset from the terrace.
To enhance your Scottish experience, there are plenty of activities around. Join the local experienced leaders for horse trekking along the scenic working hill farm within the Stirling, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park area, located close to Karma Lake of Menteith. Also, just a stone’s throw away is the Lake of Menteith Fisheries, where you can learn to fly fish on the lake that is regarded as the nation’s finest trout fishing spot.
Scottish whisky, also known as ‘Scotch,’ has a history dating back to the 11th century and is an important part of the Scottish identity and what better to experience than by visiting a whiskey distillery. Deanston Distillery is just a 15 mins drive away, discover where and how scotch whisky is made on one of their distillery tours. After the tour, you’ll have the chance to sample some hand-crafted single malts.
The boutique hotel of Karma Lake of Menteith offers the perfect blend of tranquillity, rustic charm and comfort with nature right at your door steps paired with serene lake views.
