Treat yourselves to a stay in this luxurious, fairytale castle in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. This secluded 16th-century home is situated within an 80-acre estate, making it perfect for history lovers and activity enthusiasts seeking peace and tranquillity after long days of exploring. This stunning accommodation comfortably sleeps eight guests and is ideal for family gatherings and special occasions with loved ones.

This castle offers a range of characterful features and exceptional period decor, including a stone barrel-vaulted ceiling, oak flooring and grand fireplaces, making it an impressive place to host a remarkable get-together. While maintaining many of its unique features, the home has been lovingly refurbished with splashes of colour and modern facilities to ensure a welcoming and stress-free stay.

Inside this historic home, the porch invites you into the family games and lounge room for nights of healthy competition and relaxation. After a chilly day of hiking through the national park, put your feet up on the comfy sofa, heat your toes in front of the flickering wood burner and let your cup of tea warm your fingertips. This is an ideal spot for everyone to gather for a film night or catch up with one another.

In the kitchen, experiment with flavours to serve up lashings of hearty haggis, neeps and tatties and large glasses of vino – sure to fill tummies after an energetic day. Dine communally at the table in the dining room, which comfortably seats eight and has the wow factor due to its curved exposed brick ceiling. As the kids scurry off to play a game of table tennis in the outhouse, the adults can retire to the sunroom for wee drams and, perhaps, a few pages of the bestselling book.

Climb the spiral staircase to the first floor, where the Great Hall beckons you to unwind. Settle down on the pillowy sofas and gaze out to wonderful views overlooking the estate and beyond. This room is great for socialising, while the original features remind you of bygone days. Seek out slumber on this floor, with two of four thoughtfully designed rooms: one double and one twin, both with en-suites. On the second floor, two additional double bedrooms also boast en-suite bathrooms.

Begin your days with a freshly brewed cup of tea and relax on the comfy seating in the shared grounds. You may even like to start with a stroll down to the riverside or go on an adventure through the forest trails.

You will have to tear yourselves away from this enchanting home, but if you manage it, you will find incredible woodlands, crystal-clear rivers and the friendliest Highland cows. Get to know the area with a wander around your direct surroundings, the 80-acre estate from which the property is based.

If you want to burn off some of that extra energy with a rambling hike or wild swim, then Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park offer wonderful Munros to climb and practically see-through lochs. If you are keen on walking, the Duchray Castle Walk begins 3 miles away and covers 5 miles of dazzling views over Loch Ard, gorgeous coastal paths and the chance to get close to Duchray Castle.

For something a bit more relaxed, take a trip to Aberfoyle (2.5 miles) to visit their many shops, pubs and restaurants, perhaps stopping for a hot cup of tea and wedge of shortbread. You can also take leisurely strolls around some of the area's many historic sites and landmarks, including Stirling Castle, Doune Castle and Inchmahome Priory (all within 22 miles).
