This luxury group accommodation with a swimming pool is set against the gorgeous natural backdrop of tree-lined wetlands of Loch Lomond, with grounds so extensive you can safely land a helicopter on them. High Wards House is simultaneously spacious and intimate, thanks to an airy open-plan kitchen/diner that opens onto an adjoining patio.

Indoor Heated swimming pool

At your luxury group accommodation in Loch Lomond, dangle your toes in the indoor heated swimming pool, or relax over a game as you take in floor-to-ceiling views of the magnificent nature reserve through the huge picture window in the living room. Just outside are the spectacular flora and fauna of the surrounding wetlands: get an eyeful of ospreys, pink-footed geese, and whooper swans with the provided telescopes and binoculars.
