Property code: PE173

Pretty spacious detached cottage is a fantastic alternative to a hotel room, offering more space and privacy. Giving you peace and tranquillity to enjoy a romantic retreat set in the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National park.

This romantic and stylish getaway is situated in a secluded spot within the stunning landscape around the Balquhidder Glen, within the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. The River Balvaig meanders by and Loch Lubnaig sits quietly downstream, making this home-from-home a wonderful place to simply relax and reconnect.

The property itself is a lovingly renovated traditional stone cottage, with gorgeous outdoor areas and stylishly furnished rooms inside. Deceptively spacious, light and airy, with original features like exposed beams, a fireplace, and stonework, the old life of the building is preserved and incorporated into a contemporary design.

Head into the ground level and you’ll find the open-plan kitchen and dining room with doors leading out to the garden. It’s an inviting, calming and sociable space, with a glowing wood burner, a romantic table for two in the corner and a modern kitchen with all the appliances and equipment you could need to rustle up a special meal. Head down a few stairs into your lounge, a cosy and tranquil space, with another set of French doors leading out to the patio area, so you can sit in comfort and watch the local birds frolicking at their feeders.

Head along the hallway to discover the hideaway bedroom, up a small set of steps. This luxurious bedroom is decorated in chic tones with classic furniture pieces, including an iron-framed double bed.

Outside the cottage, the outdoor space will give you that extra dose of relaxation. The front garden has a sweet spot of grass with a picnic table for enjoying a meal outside, and another lovely seating area beside the house. At the rear, there’s another patio area where you can delight in a nightcap beside the chiminea.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The area around the cottage is the perfect place to begin your exploration of the Highlands. You're surrounded by lochs, burns, glens, and peaks that will take your breath away, not to mention a labyrinth of hidden woodland trails through ancient, atmospheric forests.

If you fancy a little adventure on the water, you could try your hand at a watersport or two. The village of Lochearnhead sits 5 miles away on the western edge of Loch Earn at the foot of Glen Ogle. It's a great base from which to try something new - take out a boat, learn to kayak, or go hiking around the water. In the summer season, you could even attend the Balquhidder, Lochearnhead and Strathyre Highland Games, a festival showcasing the best of the Scottish spirit.

And if you're feeling even more ambitious, this national park is home to a good few mountains high enough to get your heart racing. Take a dramatic drive to Ben Lomond, for example - at 3,193 feet, it's solid Munro territory and will definitely make your friends back home jealous.

Or for a little more town life, head to Stirling, 24 miles away, where you can enjoy a lovely meal out, take in some art and culture, or soak in the local history at Stirling Castle.

This is our 4th time staying at the cottage and wont be our last. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with everything you need. A welcome pack was waiting which was a lovely thought. The wildlife didnt disappoint with daily visits to the garden from the woodpecker, regular visits by the red squirrels and night time visit by the pine martin .

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
