The new Lodge House Activity Hub will be open for business August 2016.
During the site planning to refurbish The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre, the old cottage was identified as a building which could be developed to deliver group activities.
The Lodge House Activity Hub, formerly called “Bracken hill cottage”, was built in the 1960’s as part of the David Marshall Lodge visitor centre and leased to the site warden as a residential property.
Since October 2015, Forest Enterprise Scotland (FES) has been carrying out a programme of refurbishment and internal changes to this listed building. The project has been partially funded by SportScotland through the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Legacy fund.
The Activity Hub now has a meeting room seating up to 20 people, a smaller meeting room/ catering area seating 10+ people, secure bag storage, fully accessible toilets, shower and a kitchenette area. The building will also have wi-fi access and equipment to deliver media presentations.
The Activity Hub is available to book for education, community, corporate and outdoor activity groups, for events, and by other interested parties.
Key partners in this project have been Forest Enterprise Scotland, SportScotland, local community / business groups and the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park’s education and planning teams.
