Nice rural cottage. Had a wonderful visit in Scotland
Lovely weekend away
Earlier this year my wife and I decided to have a much needed adult break from the kids. Along with our trusty Dalmatian Dotty, we chose this cottage and area of Scotland as it had great memories from my youth. Neither the area or cottage disappointed.
Once we had worked out where the front door key was (Carole was out on our arrival and being from the city not used to the local trusting ways), we found a very clean and lovely cottage, along with a welcome pack of coffee tea and cookies. It had everything we needed for the weekend and we even found a cracking Indian restaurant in the next village along that delivered!!! Despite not being able to order the best weather we would thoroughly recommend this cottage and area to anyone and we very much look forward to be able to return again next year. Thanks Carole!!

Great to meet you all. You would be welcome any time. Carol
Nice spacious cottage catering for every need, lovely warm welcome by owner.
Thank you for your review Beverley, it was lovely to meet you all. I hope you all have a peaceful Christmas and a healthy New Year.
Lovely cottage in an excellent location
The cottage was very pretty, warm and welcoming. Thank you for the delicious gingerbread!
The cottage was very comfortable and clean, well equipped throughout with everything we needed. It was spacious, with plenty of room for the children to play indoors when it rained and a nice garden outside. The location was perfect, a peaceful spot but within easy reach of shops and a good base for exploring the area.
We had a lovely stay and hope to return sometime.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We would be delighted to welcome you again.
Our charming country cottages, in the heart of Scotland offer a relaxing break away from it all. Situated on the edge of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, in an area of outstanding beauty, on our working farm, our newly converted cottages are furnished and equipped to a very high standard.
We will ensure that you receive a warm welcome and personal service throughout your stay.
The cottages are only a few miles from the banks of Loch Lomond and are ideally suited to exploring Central Scotland.
If you prefer some more urban pursuits Stirling and Glasgow are only a 30 minute drive away, Edinburgh and Perth an hour. In only 40 minutes you can travel to Glasgow where there are museums, galleries and theatres. The same can be said of Edinburgh where there is also the world famous Festival in August.
You have the opportunity of a sail on Loch Katrine where you can also hire bicycles. There are some stunning drives in the Trossachs and up towards the forests of Argyll. Locally, Loch Lomond has many cruise and water sport opportunities. Private hire or charters are available to book from Balloch or Balmaha.
Ben Lomond, Ben Vorlich and Ben Ledi are our local Munros for those who enjoy hill-walking. There are also many local walks to suit all abilities. Aberfoyle, 3 miles away also hosts the unique Go Ape experience for the more adventurous.
Locally there are excellent opportunities for walking, sight seeing, cycling & mountain biking, pony trekking, fishing, golf and lots more.
If you are interested in history, there are castles in Edinburgh and Stirling along with Wallace Monument in Stirling where the views are amazing.
The immediate area is serviced by many villages, each with their own charm and individual attractions. This has resulted in a wide range of amenities on your door step.
Our cottages have been tastefully furnished with everything to make your stay relaxing. The private gardens mean that you can enjoy the beautiful countryside without having to move.
On request, it would be by pleasure to give a conducted tour of one of our dairy farms, an ideal opportunity to give children and adults an insight into the life of a dairy cow and the source of your daily pinta!
We look forward to seeing you.
