Rhumhor Holiday Lodge Video – Updated for 2017

We like to produce a ‘video’ to give potential guests a snapshot of Rhumhor, Loch Goil and the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. It is also a nice reminder for previous guests to look back on.

Our 2017 updated version is now completed and can be viewed below. We wish all our website visitors a fantastic 2017!

Happy New Year!

 
Here we are once again at the end of the year, looking forward to 2017.

It’s been a busy year here at Rhumhor and as always we’ve continued improving facilities for our guests.

We kicked off last Spring with improvements to the drainage on the guest parking area.  The very middle of the parking area had started to sink a little and so we dug out the area, added extra hardcore and a new layer of gravel.

Next we wanted to improve access to our new lochside lawn so that it could be enjoyed by all our guests.  The solution to this was a new ‘bridge’ that is both practical and adds character to the lochside area.  We’ve had great feedback from guests and it’s been rewarding to see them enjoying the area with its stunning views of Loch Goil.

Once this was completed we added some raised beds to the lochside area.  In here we’ve planted a mixture of flowers, including some lovely native foxgloves that the bees adore.   We have begun a herb garden so that guests can stroll across and pick some fresh herbs when they are cooking at the house.

Finally towards the end of the year we repainted the family room, the walls are now a deep gold which enhances the splendour of this lovely room with its vaulted ceiling.

We feel honoured to have provided a special place for guests who have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and this year, our first wedding at Rhumhor.

We were delighted that our guests chose to wed at Rhumhor with their family present.  As it was such a beautiful day our guests were married on the lochside lawn and used the many different beautiful backdrops available around the village for their wedding photographs.

We have  welcomed many families with dogs to Rhumhor this year and it’s been gratifying to see them enjoying an area which provides such great walks.  One of these newly opened walks is one that runs through the hills behind the house and back through the village – we’ve christened it the Carrick Circular and it seems the name has stuck!  It is part of the new Carrick Estate that stretches far and wide behind Carrick Castle, providing new walks and as the years progress, new areas of forrestry.

We have already started taking bookings for 2017 and we are all set to welcome many more families to this beautiful part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

So now we will say goodbye to 2016 and wish all our previous, current and future guests a happy and peaceful 2017 – we hope to welcome you to Rhumhor soon…..

Carrick Estate News

Carrick Estate
Guests who have stayed at Rhumhor over the past couple of months have noticed activity at either end of the village of Carrick Castle.

At the south end of the village a pier has been constructed, and at the Rhumhor end of the village construction of an estate lodge, home and office has been under-way. This is all part of the newly formed Carrick Estate which has meant that hills behind Carrick Castle have been planted for forestry and tracks into the hills improved and in certain areas new tracks installed. The pier will enable harvested timber to be removed by boat, rather than using the road network and large lorries. The new buildings will be used to manage the Estate. The Estate is working on improving bio-diversity which means both natural flora and fauna should benefit and flourish.

A great benefit for guests at Rhumhor are the improvements made to the tracks in the hills behind Carrick Castle. We have always had a good network of tracks for walkers but now these include new entrance access points and improved tracks north and south of Rhumhor.

You can see more information on Carrick Estate on their newly launched website www.carrickestate.co.uk.
