Just returned from a short family (2 adults + 2 kids, 5 and 8) holiday in the North Wing at Leny Estate. The standard of accommodation was first class, very well maintained and spotlessly clean. Internally the house was very well appointed with beautiful furniture and furnishings with lovely ornaments and books which made it feel very homely, which was matched by a warm welcome by the staff and residents of the main house.
The house is set in a fantastic spot, with beautiful views and open space on the estate, about a half mile away from the main road to Callander. We found lots to do and see in the Trossachs area, with Blair Drummond Safari park, a firm favourite with the kids, only 15 minutes drive away. We also enjoyed a boat trip on Loch Lomond and a day in Glasgow which is an hour's drive away. There is a great pub with great real ales (Lade Inn) and a 'woollen mill' souvenir shop with highland cattle a few minutes walk away, plus some good cycling opportunities a bit further in the forest parks and around lochs, especially Katrine. All in all, we'd highly recommend the Leny estate and we're not easily pleased!
