Stayed in early September in the Leny Lodge - accommodation that allows dogs. It was very picturesque, original a gatehouse to the estate so close to the entrance. It had its own private and secure garden area with a burn running through it which our dog loved jumping into. The kitchen was very well appointed, the lounge/diner comfortable and the bedrooms very comfortable, spacious and had sufficient storage. Bathroom had shower but no bath. Everywhere was very clean and on a wider scale the estate was well presented and maintained as well. We didn't light the log burner as the property was lovely and warm without it being on. Located on the northern edge of Callander, on the main road through the town, it was ideal for setting off into the Trossachs. Tescos and Coop stores in the town were handy, (good reductions in late afternoon as well). We had a lovely time and the accommodation contributed to this in no small part. Just what we, and the dog, wanted. Thank you to all

Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to leave a review. It’s great to hear that the facilities and location of Leny Lodge were to your liking and you had a lovely stay. It would appear that your dog had a good time as well! Leny Lodge isn’t on the market for sale but we hope you come back and visit us again soon!!

We stayed in the Buchanan Lodge, and it was just what we needed. After many days of full Scottish B&B breakfasts and pub dinners, we were eager to prepare our own food in a well equipped kitchen. The cabin was spacious and very comfortable. The interior was kept up and clean. Wifi was hit or miss, but the point was to be on vacation, so it wasn't a big deal. Driving up the drive past the sheep and the main house added to the charm of the experience. The town of Callendar is just up the road.

Well I will start by saying if you go from spring to autumn take midge repellant.

We arrived Friday afternoon too the rain lashing down,was told we can stay in one of three lodges.we chose the Buchanan lodge it sits at the back of the drive way you can see everything down the hill.

When in the lodge we found none of the heater were on so it was a bit chilli but just with being wet due too the rain.but hayho we got that sorted.a couple other things that weren’t 100%.one of the things were the wall they are hollow walls and you can here everything through them even people whispering.

But with the bad things the good trump them,ground staff amazing very helpful.the beds were extremely comfortable facilities with in the lodge very nice,some things could do with a little up date.

Was lovely and and the bbq we used which every lodge gets outside there porches.

I have family staying a 3rd night and everyone spoke too have said purity much the same,it will be nice too be back but need to save a bit.

But please this was an amazing weekends little things went wrong and are over come.so when. If you go take midge repellant and extra toilet roll.

Enjoy and I really hope you get the weather .

Thank you .

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found the log cabins comfortable.

The weather when you arrived was very wet, which coupled together with warm’ humid temperatures created perfect ‘midgie’ conditions! This is not typical as sunny weather or light winds keeps them at bay. Repellent is rarely required by guests on the estate.

We were able to give you a choice of cabin as we had not received a guest allocation list.

During the summer months we do not pre heat the log cabins for obvious reasons. Our modern electric panel heaters can heat a cabin in minutes if required, and we are pleased that you made use of them.

Our log cabins are made of solid spruce with wooden internal partition walls. The sound insulation is very much in line with any traditional log cabin.

Our log cabins are fully self-catering as stated clearly on our website, marketing materials and correspondence. We do supply some ‘starter’ items (including a toilet roll) however guests are required to bring their own essentials.

We hope you will visit us again soon.

We used all the accommodation at Leny Estate to host our family & wedding party for our wedding at nearby Venachar Lochside. It was absolutely perfect for what we needed. The north wing was luxurious, the cottages spacious and the log cabins comfortable and well laid out. The views of the surrounding countryside just added to the sense of occasion. Alan and his team were very helpful and always available. A lot of our guests have promised to return. Can’t recommend it enough.

We have a strong relationship with the Venachar Lochside, and are proud to provide accommodation for so many of their weddings.

Service is hugely important to us and we have passed on your kind words to Alan and the staff.
