Portnellan is located in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. You’ll find us a few miles south of Crainlarich, amidst the magical part of the Central Highlands people think of as ‘real’ Scotland. The picture books, the vivid memory of ex-pats, the immediate response of the first-time visitor… it is all here, all year round. We are only 1 Hour 30 Minutes from Glasgow and 2 Hours from Edinburgh.
