Lapwing is one of the most popular properties on the Portnellan Estate. With breath taking views to the North and West across the lambing meadow, loch and river I often see people taking in the amazing sunset across the loch and mountains from their private balcony.
With an open plan kitchen, living and dining area the Lapwing benefits from a cozy and warm living area and includes all home from home comforts. A large “sink into” style sofa allows you to admire and gaze through the double glazed windows to the unrestricted views over Glen Dochart, the river, Loch Dochart and the surrounding mountains. A truly magnificent Highland setting and a view that will be hard to beat from a self catering holiday property in Scotland.
With all the comforts from home (and more) the Lapwing is equipped to a 4 star standard with a king size double bed in the master bedroom. The view East from the bedroom window perfectly encapsulates Ben More mountain and the mountain burn that runs through Lapwing’s garden.
A separate bathroom with large bath with shower over, twin sinks, toilet and bidet.
4 star treats include soft Egyptian cotton bed linen and white fluffy towels. We pride ourselves on the comfort of our beds. A holiday would not be a holiday without a good night’s sleep.
Lapwing has a magnificent setting with a true Highland landscape all around. Often complimented by the abundance of bird and wild life that can be seen on the estate it is not unusual to see the deer meandering off the hill and passing nearby the chalet.
The Portnellan Estate has been privately owned by the same family for well over 35 years and offers fantastic facilities to include fresh run salmon and trout fishing on the estate lochs and river, mountain bike hire with plenty of trails on and off road for all abilities. Canoes. kayaks and rowing boats on the nearby river and loch can be used free of charge. Clay pigeon shooting can also be arranged.
Wifi is available throughout the estate as well as BBQ hire, DVD library and a large selection of board games. We can even offer fresh eggs from the chickens on the estate and a selection of organic meat products fresh from a farm locally. perfect for the BBQ or home cooking.
