The iconic Treehouse at The Lodge on Loch Goil celebrates its 15th birthday this month.

Built around a mature Scots Pine tree in November 2004, the Treehouse has become a much loved and memorable feature on the shore of Loch Goil. Originally built as a unique feature to attract clients to the venue, the Treehouse has seen its popularity steadily increase over the years.

Soon after it’s construction the Treehouse quickly established itself as the perfect backdrop for fashion shoots and ad campaigns. Companies including British Vogue, Marie Claire, GQ, Esquire and Burberry have all utilised the unique setting as a photography location.

It has also been the subject of several features in print and online media, including The Scots Magazine, The Daily Mail, Harpers Bazaar, Buzzfeed and Conde Nast Traveller.

Several famous faces have also enjoyed the space, such as Helena Christensen, Kathie Lee Gifford, Craig Ferguson, Ford Kiernan and Elizabeth Hurley. 

It has since gone on to be amongst other things, a meeting venue, yoga studio, mindfulness retreat and a much sought after wedding venue.

As part of the month-long celebration of the Treehouse’s 15th birthday, The Lodge on Loch Goil is offering 15% off all activities booked during November. All weddings, private dining bookings, indulgence breaks and fashion shoots will receive a 15% deduction from the total cost. This applies to weddings that take place between November and March, and January 4th to March 31st for private dining, indulgence breaks and fashion shoots (excluding Valentines Weekend). 

“We can’t believe 15 years have already passed,” said Iain Hopkins, Managing Director of The Lodge on Loch Goil. “The Treehouse started as a crazy idea, and now it feels like a member of the family. People from all over the world know us as the place with the treehouse, and we feel that its story has only just begun.”


The Lodge on Loch Goil is a Restaurant with Rooms and exclusive use venue nestled between the shores of Loch Goil and a majestic backdrop of mountain scenery. Just over an hour’s drive from Glasgow, this Victorian private country house built in 1864 is one of the finest 5-star venues in Scotland. Recently awarded two rosettes by the AA, their Restaurant with Rooms is open to both residents and non-residents, they also offer bespoke luxury weddings for food lovers, and private dining for groups.
