The waterfront Karma Lake of Menteith looks straight out of the movie Frozen with magical connotations
January 10, 2022: Choosing Scotland’s only natural lake for its Scottish debut - the waterfront Karma Lake of Menteith is the 44th luxury hotel in the Karma Group’s expanding portfolio.
Sitting in the quaint hamlet of the Port of Menteith, the destination is shrouded in both history and natural wonder. Easily accessible, the Port of Menteith is strategically located an hour’s drive from the international airports of Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as within arm’s reach of the historic city of Sterling, and Loch Lomond and the surrounding Scottish Highlands.
Karma Lake of Menteith sits on the banks of the lake, boasting unrivalled views of its surrounding hills and resident flora and fauna. This destination will hold particular appeal for avid fishermen, with the destination world famous for its trout populations, as well as historians, thanks to the lake being home to an island that Mary Queen of Scots took refuge on.
The property itself - Karma Lake of Menteith - was once the manse for the church but has since been remodelled as a hotel in the style of a New England Waterfront Inn. While currently in operation, refurbishments are expected shortly. “The property itself comprises 20 rooms and a renowned pub and restaurant (as well as a malt vault!),” says John Spence, Chairman and Founder of Karma Group. “It is currently actively trading but we will invest time and money in upgrading it over the coming months and ensure it is a true Karma resort by the spring (when the haggis hunting season commences!).”
The purchase of Karma Lake of Menteith is also further proof that Karma Group continues to thrive despite a global pandemic. This is the group’s ninth purchase since Covid started.
