About the Location & Area
The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park boasts some of the most glorious scenery in Scotland. The area we are in “The Trossachs” is known as Scotland’s “Lake District” – but without the crowding that the English Lakes have.
The nearest pub/ restaurant is the fabulous Lake Hotel a mile away which has lakefront dining and a cosy bar. The nearest shops are in Aberfoyle 4 miles away with a good co-op and a terrific artisan butcher who gives our guests a 10% discount.
The Trossachs is a wonderful area and our cottages are an ideal location from which to explore one of Scotland’s most picturesque areas or to use as a base to tour central Scotland:-
Within 5 minutes drive you can be at the charming Lake Hotel which serves good food right at the lakeside or at Nick Nairn’s famous Cook School or in Aberfoyle or the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park at the David Marshall Lodge
Within 10 minutes from the cottage you can be in the quaint little town of Callander, where the original series of Dr Finlay’s case book was filmed, or taking a sail on the Sir Walter Scott steamship on Loch Katrine.
Stirling with its ancient castle is twenty minutes away.
Scenic Loch Lomond, the single biggest expanse of inland water in the British Isles, with its charming villages and bays to explore is only half an hour from the cottage.
Gleneagles is a 40 minutes drive.
The cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is less than an hour’s drive.
Historic Edinburgh is a little over an hour’s drive, as is Perth.
