Guestbook comments from the owner
"Finnich cottage is just ideal for travellers who wish to explore the Trossachs and also spend some time in Glasgow,both being worth visiting.

Our family is used to exchanging homes because we find you seldom feel at home in rentals but Finnich cottage offers both comfortable,cosy atmosphere and high standard equipment ,besides the owners were always friendly and willing to help.Last but not least is the location itself: first the cottage is situated in a peaceful rural estate and the views on the mountains are gorgeous.An address we highly recommend

Andrew and Marguerite Dewar Durie bought this estate when Andrew moved to Scotland to run a large Whisky Company based in Dumbarton . His Family originally came from Fife and Andrew is the Chief of the Duries. He is also a member of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs.

If you are interested to trace back your ancestry, this is where you should base yourself.

Marguerite is Austrian and is an Interior Designer. She has planned and designed the beautiful cottages.

On line booking at finnichcottages.com purchased this cottage in 1992

Finnich Malise Estate had been little cared for for many years and presented a major and exciting challenge to us when we bought it. First priority was to repair and re-decorate the beautiful Georgian house and then to start recovering the parkland with its 200 year old trees. A separate project was to completely re build the derelict 19th century Steading buildings and convert them into 4 holiday cottages.

The projects continue with the recent planting of 9 ha of mixed Scottish woodland.

The uniqueness of the Finnich Malise estate which was evident to us when we first saw it, was its location. Close enough to Glasgow and Stirling but positioned in its own 200 acres of grounds to give total peace and tranquillity, with stunning views to the western North over the National Park and with easy access to Loch Lomond , 5 miles away.

CALM, IDYLIC AND RESTFUL

  • 5 of 5
I think the easiest thing to say about finnich cottage is would we ever go back.

Well the answer is simply we would not hesitate to return to finnich cottages as it was so lovely. The cottages are placed in a suburb area that is quite and restful and way from the noise of tourist areas, however a 15 minute drive puts you in a lively area of pubs and cafés.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I hope that when you called the position of the cottage "in a suburb" you really meant superb? As there is no suburb anywhere near us,
Many thanks in any case

Très bel endroit pour visiter le parc naturel des Trossachs, le Loch Lomond, Glasgow et les environs.
Nous avons été très bien reçus par Marguerite et nous sommes enchantés du séjour dans ce joli cottage en pleine nature.
Le Sycamore cottage est parfaitement équipé pour accueillir un couple et un bébé. Il y a d'autres cottages plus grands pour les familles nombreuses. Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu!
