About Karma Lake of Menteith

Karma Lake of Menteith is an enchanting 19th-century lakeside hotel, situated on the banks of the Lake of Menteith, which is Scotland’s only natural Lake. Located in the historic city of Stirling, the journey towards the hotel will take you through some spectacular Scottish scenery, and as you reach the Port of Menteith, the Lake unfolds before you with the hotel nestled right on its shores. Karma Lake of Menteith has its own Malt Vault for guests to sample a wide range of outstanding malts, and is surrounded by nature with its manicured gardens and sun terrace overlooking the peaceful waters of the lake, offering guests a harmonious blend of traditional charm and modern luxury.

Our history

Mary Queen of Scots Refuge

The Karma Lake of Menteith hotel was originally a manse near the adjacent church, which was converted into an inn in 1888 and was converted into a hotel in 1937. It is located on the North-Eastern shore of Lake Menteith, formerly called Loch Inchmahome. Mary Queen of Scots is said to have sought refuge on Inchmahome Island in the center of the lake, which contains the ruins of the ancient Inchmahome Abbey.
