The accommodation offers 1 twin bedded en-suite bedroom and 1 four poster en-suite Bedroom, both located on the ground floor. There are two staircases, the smaller staircase by the kitchen leads to a double and a small twin room and a house bathroom. The main staircase leads to the other bedrooms. There is a double bedroom, a triple bedroom (1 double and 1 single bed), a double with 8ft round bed, 2 doubles both with children's day beds (these are less than 5ft long so they really are just for children). There are 2 house shower rooms and a house bathroom with teardrop bath and shower. There is also a little tea and coffee station with fridge so you don't need to go to the kitchen for your morning cuppa.

Also on the ground floor you will find the study / library, with open fire as well as card table. sitting room and dining room both with open fireplaces and all with views over the loch. There is a large and very well equipped kitchen and pantry area with seating for 14 - 18 guests.

Games room and bar with a pool table, darts board, log burning stove and bar. There is also a children's play room with table and chairs, sink, fridge and lots of games.

The house has a state of the art music system, you simply download the music of your choice from the website and you can play this in any of the ground floor rooms or lower ground floor rooms and also in the 7 seater hot tub which also has mood lighting. The hot tub has been positioned at the front of the house to take full advantage of the glorious view over the Loch.

2 Night weekend breaks from 4pm Friday with a later 4pm check out on Sundays only. We also accept American Express.

The grounds are extensive and home to many rare trees not normally found in Scotland, this is why each bedroom has been named after a tree that you will find somewhere on the estate.

There is a patio area with table and chairs and hot tub. The entrance also has an electric gate.

The house is set in woodland and there are several streams so please note that children will need supervision.

The house is within easy access of Glasgow airport and there are trains from the airport which run to Balloch Station, approximately 16 miles away.

Fantastic Weekend at a Fabulous Location

Struckgowan provided a perfect location for my wife's surprise birthday celebration. The house is truely stunning with top of the range fittings and tasteful decor.. We were a party of 22 including 4 young children and families of various ages. There was something for everyone including fabulous views and a high tech movie cinema fully equipped with the latest games and films. Catering supplied by Taste Marine was first class. We look forward to coming back in the future. Many thanks David
Owner's Response: Dear David,

Thank you for writing a review, I am so glad your wife had a wonderful surprise birthday and we hope to welcome you back for many more celebrations to come.

Kind regards

Long weekend for my 60th birthday. Couldn't have picked better - the fantastic weather did help though! All my family - 19 of us - had a ball!! Ages from 4 to 60 thoroughly enjoyed the house, the cinema room, the huge kitchen and the hot tub!! Only 20 minutes walk from Tarbet. For a long weekend I would definitely recommend!
Owner's Response: Dear Neil,

Simply stunning

Stuckgowan is a spectacular renovation project now providing accommodation for up to 21 guests. We stayed for a week as a family of 4 children plus grandparents and we were lucky to use even a quarter of the house!! I have read it many times before that pictures on the internet do not do a property justice and this is certainly case in this beautiful home.

The entrance is somewhat timid, but once you go through the porch it opens out to a passageway exceeding 150 feet in lenght with room after room on either side. The decoration, cornicing, flooring, and the detail in every room has to be seen to be believed.

There are 7 spectacular bathrooms and all of the bedrooms have beds with fantastic mattresses, beautiful covers and luxurious pillows and hundreds of towels.

On the ground floor, there is a well stocked library, drawing room, dining room and huge well fitted kitchen, which all have spectacular views over Loch Lomond. The carpentry around the windows is exceptional. At this level there are also two en suite bed bedrooms, one a four poster, (the grand parents had that one!!), and a utility room.

Outside at this level, there is a beautiful patio area containing an outdoor teak table to seat c16 guests and a Jacuzzi to seat 7, again, all with fabulous views of Loch Lomond. There were probably enough sumptuous towels for the Jacuzzi if 21 guests were present.

There are two separate staircases, the first to an area with two bedrooms and a fabulous bathroom.The second staircase leads to an atrium and five more bedrooms and three bathrooms. Three of these bedrooms overlook Loch Lomond with far reaching views. The middle bedroom, is a tribute to "Pride and Prejudice" with an 8ft circular bed and a copper bath in a raised area – though how they managed in those days, as if you filled this bath with really hot water the base and sides became as hot as the water!!

The luxuries in Stuckgowan include a Sonus sound system which produces excellent music quality inside and outside. Downstairs there is a cinema room and the picture and sound quality are surreal - you actually think you are in the film!! There is also at this level another kitchen, gym, laundry and a large room with a bar and pool table.

Outside is simply stunning especially if you walk uphill for c20 minutes - breathtaking and not because of the walk!!

A truly remarkable and spectacular property - thanks to the owners for aloowing us to vacate in their home.

The most magnificent property on Loch Lomond!

This was a truly wonderful house with everything you need and could ever want. From a first class cinema room to the fantastic jacuzzi on the deck with views over Ben Lomond and the Loch. We were a group of 14 adults and 1 child and we all had our own bedrooms with enough space to "do you own thing" during the day. The library was fantastic for a quiet read or to play a few board games. The lounge, dining room and kitchen worked beautifully. And the Everhot stove was a joy to cook on. The bar/pool room downstairs provided plenty of entertainment with a few games played before and after dinner......to avoid the washing up...but then there was no washing up as there are 3 dishwashers to accommodate more pots, pans and plates than you would use!

The deer come down from the woods above the property to graze on the lawn and we had the pleasure of watching a large stag return to the woods a dusk. If you really want to spoil yourself and friends/family then this is the place to do it.
Owner's Response: Dear June,

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Stuckgowan and thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We hope to welcome you back again soon.

Kind regards

Helen
