Lodge on Loch Lomond offers a private shore

A wonderful former hunting lodge with private shorefront on the banks of Loch Lomond is now for sale.

Ptarmigan Lodge was built by the Duke of Montrose 160 years ago as his hunting lodge. Commanding an enviable waterside location on the banks of Loch Lomond, the property offers a unique opportunity to own a wonderful family home or holiday retreat.

Presented to the market by Savills, there is an entrance vestibule and welcoming reception hallway, with fantastic open fire, lead to the main living accommodation, with stairs rising to the upper level. The rooms offer grand proportions and a wealth of period features throughout.

The principal reception rooms are situated to the front of the property, taking full advantage of the breathtaking views over the grounds and loch.

The drawing room has a feature fireplace and impressive bay window, while the sitting room has detailed cornicing, a wood burning stove and windows on two sides, with doors opening out onto the gardens.

A further reception room, currently used as a games/family room offers considerable flexibility.

Inside stunning Ptarmigan Lodge

A large extension was built to create a spacious open plan kitchen with large range cooker and breakfasting island. The dining area has French doors which open into the garden and there is ample space for a large dining table and chairs. There is a generously sized utility room and family
bathroom on this level.

A turned staircase leads up to the first floor accommodation. The master bedroom has excellent storage and boasts some of the finest views over the loch.

There are three further double bedrooms, all with a beautiful outlook over the surrounding landscape, and a large shower room.

The property benefits from a separate timber built lodge which is currently set up as a games room with a mezzanine sleeping platform above. There is power, water supply and a WC.

The spacious kitchen area

Ptarmigan Lodge enjoys an idyllic lochside setting in a plot that extends to about 13.5 acres. This mostly consists of woodland with an area of lawn immediately surrounding the property. There are many vantage points within the grounds and various clearings maximising the views from the house.

There are generous gardens which surround the property, mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees offering privacy. There are a number of pathways through the gardens and woodland leading down to the shore.

The property benefits from Riparian rights for fishing and shooting on the land and loch.

Ptarmigan Lodge lies in a unique and enviable position deep into the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and with direct access to the eastern shore line of Loch Lomond.

It is quiet and peaceful at the end of the eastern loch-side road, yet for those who relish country life it is approximately one hour’s commute from Glasgow.

Rowardennan, which has a hotel with a bar and restaurant, lies just a mile or so to the south and is widely known as the starting point for hiking up Ben Lomond or the adjacent, slightly lower Ptarmigan Ridge. Ptarmigan Lodge, as its name suggests, has an even closer, footpath to both peaks.

The property is ideal for ‘Swallows and Amazons’ adventures and treasure hunts by young children and a lot of the lawns and open spaces can be adapted for a variety of games like croquet and badminton. Wildlife abounds and for those who relish exercise and challenges climbing, walking, cyclocross, cross-country running, orienteering, and most water sports are immediately accessible from the house and its grounds. Several interesting brooks babble through the grounds.

The agents will consider offers over £550,000.
