Lost Shore Surf Resort is coming to Ratho, Edinburgh in September 2024, when it will proudly become Europe’s largest inland surfing destination. Capable of generating up to 1,000 waves per hour, the state-of-the-art surf lake will be set within a 60-acre country park and will offer a food market, retail spaces, and a wellness spa.

After lying still for over 150 years, Eden Mill brings the art of distilling back to this historical area in the form of a new distillery experience and a range of premium single malt whiskies and gins. The front wall of the building will feature large glass windows providing beautiful views out over the estuary and the iconic St Andrews skyline. All their electricity will be 100% renewable, coming from either the solar farm belonging to the University of St Andrews or other renewable energy sources.

The new Perth Museum will open its doors in spring, Easter weekend of 2024 after a £26.5 million redevelopment project. The world-class cultural and heritage attraction will highlight the fascinating objects and stories that put Perth and Kinross at the centre of Scotland’s story.

The new museum will showcase various objects of interest, including the 3,000-year-old Carpow Logboat and the Stone of Destiny (one of Scotland’s most significant historical objects, an ancient symbol of Scotland’s monarchy that was used to crown Scottish Kings, returning to Perthshire for the first time in over 700 years). 

Perth, one of Scotland’s eight cities, sits on the banks of the River Tay in the east of Scotland, just a short journey 25 minute journey from Lindores. Perth is nestled between two sprawling public parks, and has elegant Georgian townhouses, cobbled streets and medieval spires. Explore the monuments, the art gallery and museum before discovering the glorious Perthshire countryside. 

When visiting Perth, look out for the colourful sculptures in the Hairy Highland Coo Trail coming to local spaces in summer 2024. 

This winter we’ve been busy getting to know our new Highland Cow’s but.. we’re also renovating our original farmhouse built in 1800’s. Located on our working farm the farmhouse building was in disrepair and we’re delighted to create a new space with walls that tell the stories of farming culture and life in years gone by. For guests staying in our bespoke luxury lodges – we want to welcome your friends and family in 2024 for more immersive farm experiences. We’re still working on the farm building work this winter but we’re planning on offering a 4×4 Land Rover tour for you to see and hear about our sustainable and diversified farm and of course visit our Highland cows and calves in field.
