Loch Tay Highland Lodges offers Scandinavian built holiday lodges and award-winning “glamping” accommodation on the shores of Loch Tay. The facilities have spectacular south facing views over Loch Tay and across to Ben Lawers mountain and many come complete with hot tubs.
Last year Loch Tay Highland Lodges began to add hot tubs to their accommodation, with the brand new premium timber wigwams already upgraded with the addition of private eco, wood-fired hot tubs.
The owners are also currently adding electric hot tubs to four of the woodland cabins, which will be available to rent from Easter. With large living room doors opening out onto a fully furnished balcony, the luxurious three bedroom Waterfall Lodge is ideal for a short midweek getaway with friends, or a longer stay with the family.
