Why Alan chose Lochearnhead

We bought this old cottage mainly because of it's fantastic views, we are surrounded by mountains (including a Munro to the right of the Loch) as it's at the head of the loch the view is amazing, it's also a brilliant base from which to explore, in fact we were stunned at how much there is to see and do, the village is welcoming and friendly with a shop, post office and a couple of good places to eat out

What makes this Cottage unique

there is a highland games each year practically opposite, the black faced sheep shearing championships are also held here.

                                                                  We really enjoyed our stay in Lochearnhead and were lucky with the weather. There are a lot of hiking possibilities with lot of veriety (glen, forrest, open land, lakes, bens). There was a map of the regio in the cottage which we used well. The bed in the main room is really comfortable. Beds is second room are quite small (in lenght). The seats are really nice in the living room. The kitchen is well equipped and we had some extra pans on request (to make pancakes :-)). We had a problem with the shower but owner took fast action to get it repaired. It is indeed located near a busy road but has the advantage you move quickly in different directions. We brought our white shepherd dog with us and she had the time of her life.

                                                                  Great place

                                                                  Anna_BManchester

                                                                  Stopped over for a few days on our way further North. It's a great place with everything we needed. Road isn't too busy, and bedrooms are at the back of the house so it doesn't disturb.

                                                                  old school house property

                                                                  Barbara B.-

                                                                  Property was clean and comfortable. It is located on a busy main road, that creates noise. Some small touch ups are needed, such as the shower door and curtains are inoperable. Yard needs a little bit of attention.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks you for your feedback. We are located on the A84, it has a 30mph limit, with regular police speed checks, it is a convenient location for exploring, and is never affected by the weather, as some roads can be in the winter.

                                                                  The shower door is a little stiff, but functions fine, we went to check the property following your stay and found the lounge blinds to be faulty, these were repaired the same day, along with the second bedroom blind, hope this did not spoil your stay, it is unfortunate that you did not contact us while you were there so that this could be addressed, but glad to say this has been rectified.

                                                                  We also did the gardening following this stay, in the gap before the next guests, there is regular garden maintenance, lawn driveway etc but this included cutting back climbers, and additional weeding, happy to say it is now tidy, it isn't always easy to find a time between stays to do the bigger jobs.

                                                                  Beautiful cottage!

                                                                  This cottage is charming and lovely! It was everything we needed for our family with two small children. It is in an excellent area for exploring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners have a very beautiful property and take very good care of their home and guests. I would definitely recommend staying here!

                                                                  Croftearn cottage.....a home from home.

The cottage had everything we needed for our short break, including wifi for the kids, from the kitchen to the bedrooms we needed naught. Great place to enjoy walks and a national cycle route( no 7 )on the doorstep. The local shop just yards away and the nearest bar/restaurant only 1/2 a mile walk that is also dog friendly. Great place to stay that I would highly recommend. Oh and the milk and biscuits were well received.

                                                                  Amazing little holiday cottage

                                                                  We had a really nice stay in the Stone Cottage. It was very spacious, clean, comfortable and the view from the kitchen is absolutely amazing. The wee garden was great. We even had a picnic lunch there with our little boy. All of the little extra touches were unexpected and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend.
