The Hide – Exclusive Hire

Now available , The Hide is a bespoke BBQ hut resting on the top of Lindores Hill, Fife.  This off-grid cosy space accommodates 2-10 people for the most exclusive of lunches.

Guests staying in our award-winning luxury lodges can enjoy The Hide at a discounted rate. 

The experience is magical – as you walk in you immediately smell the woody pine, feel the warmth and hear the crackle of the fire.  This is dreamy because it is off-grid, eco-friendly, and never the same twice thanks to the ever-changing panoramic views.

Menu’s available

Our local professional chefs are exceptional, and passionate about food provenance and flavour.  Our menus can be prepared ready for your arrival, or we can arrange for a host to help serve during your event. The chefs will happily accommodate dietary requirements and tailor menus to suit.

Making Memories

We’ve packs of cards, noughts and crosses, the wooden game Kubb, wireless Bluetooth music, mood lighting in every colour to add a little fun for all ages. If you’re lucky enough to hire the hut when we’ve got snow… the fun is endless and bring a sledge!

Tell me more…

We’ve resurfaced our farm road to get you there.  It’s 4×4 access only to your hidden gem so if you don’t have the right car, we offer a Land Rover ride to and from your vehicle as part of the facility hire, subject to availability.  We’ll have logs, plates, glasses, and ice all included as part of your facility hire.

We know you’ll be dining and drinking so we’ve built a bespoke eco-toilet called The Hide ‘Woo Woo’ Loo.  It’s a separate building with one-way glass so you can sit and enjoy the view.  The Lindores team always tries to make things quirky so read the story of the ‘Woo Woo’ Loo here.
