About Us - Nethermill Lodges | Langbank

Upon our purchase of Nethermill in 2012, which included a stone cottage style building along with some grazing land and woodland overlooking the Firth of Clyde, we embarked on making Nethermill our ‘Forever Home’.

To begin with, we set about converting the stone building from an office into a house, and more importantly a family home, before improving the grazing land and building a shed to a level where we could breed our Pedigree Texel sheep (some of whom you may see grazing and roaming the fields during your stay). We then turned our attention to the native woodland, and began the thought process of what best way to utilise this area and the spectacular views on offer.

2018 brought the arrival of our son, Harris, and with him came the inspiration for our family business. 

An exciting time lay ahead as we began our journey of creating a romantic escape for couples, aiming to offer luxury and tranquillity, along with the stunning views this rural location has been blessed with.  Although rural, the very easily accessible transport links to some of Scotland’s best tourist attractions, was at the forefront of our thinking, which include Loch Lomond, the city of Glasgow and Argyll and Bute to mention but a few. 

Not only do we take great pleasure being able to share the experience created here, embarking on this adventure also has allowed us more time at home, as a family. The opportunity to work from home and invest ourselves in our family business, is something we hold in very high regard, and would not be possible if it wasn’t for the wonderful support of our guests.
