Deep in the heart of leafy Buchanan Castle Estate, Strathendrick House is a haven of peace and tranquillity. With its vast garden, complete with gurgling stream and dominated by an enormous fir, mature trees and an orchard, you can be sure of utter seclusion and privacy on your holiday in Scotland.

This substantial 5 bedroom house situated in the grounds of Buchanan Castle has been newly and lovingly renovated over the last year. On the ground floor, the enormous and open plan kitchen/dining room and main living area, which lead directly onto the spectacular garden via huge glass window/ doors, features a log-burning stove and a state-of-the-art maple and granite kitchen. There is a connecting TV snug, tartan and cosy, with a further log burning stove. Through a little corridor, complete with piano, you reach an airy study, featuring yet another log burning stove and a stag head with antlers (!) for anyone planning a spot of leisurely work whilst on vacation. On this floor too is a double bedroom with en-suite, great for the elderly or anyone with mobility Issues, which leads directly to the living and kitchen area, no stairs required. There is also a colourful and quirky public bathroom.

Off a long upstairs corridor, dotted with interesting maps and pictures, there are four more bedrooms, two with large king-sized beds and sumptuous furnishings, en-suite shower rooms and French doors leading to Juliet Balconies, whilst the other two bedrooms are delightfully furnished and benefit from a further public bathroom with free standing claw foot bath.

The property shows flair and style and reflects the travels and experiences of the owners, featuring unique pieces and quirky Art, giving it a sumptuous yet supremely homely feel. This is thus the ideal property for family and friends, large groups, or those seeking a romantic getaway, to gather and enjoy the light and spacious surroundings, or as the ideal touring base.

Situated in Scotland’s first National Park and with Loch Lomond, and the majesty of Ben Lomond close by, the area is staggeringly beautiful. ON sunny days there is the opportunity for al fresco dining, and there are trampolines and swings for those feeling youthful.

There are also a huge variety of outdoor activities are on offer. Golfers have the choice of many top class courses all within easy reach, including the championship course of Loch Lomond, as well as the Buchanan Castle course and the delightful 8 holes of Strathendrick, which are only minutes away. The Drymen and East Loch Lomond area is a veritable paradise for anglers of every level of experience. The waters of this area are the home to many different types of fish including: brown & rainbow trout, perch, pike, salmon and roach, whilst Loch Lomond, the largest freshwater loch in Scotland, offers a wide range of water sports, to suit all ages and abilities, including sailing, canoeing and water skiing. For avid horse riders, stables are situated within the Buchanan Castle Estate itself.

The village of Drymen itself is endlessly charming, with local amenities, several fine pubs and eateries, a leisure and sports complex open to the public, as well as a variety of events including ceilidhs, agricultural shows, and dances at Hogmanay. With the historic town of Stirling and its castle, battlefields and monuments, and Glasgow, the City of Culture and Entertainment, both less than half an hour's drive away, this delightful self-catering holiday house has something to offer everyone.

    Strathendrick House reviews
    If you want to get off grid and enjoy a beautiful location then look no further than this property. The house is generously proportioned and having stayed in February the log burners were like a magnet, the perfect antidote to dreich and cold winter days, though be prepared for a lot of dozing off against the heat and warmth - especially if you've just enjoyed a hearty pub lunch at one of Drymen's pubs - we particularly loved the The Clachan Inn, apparently the oldest registered licensed pub in Scotland - all I know for sure is their food was great as was the hospitality and the real ale! And its within a 15 minute walk of the house so no need to worry about taxis! The children loved the gardens to the house with the stream running around the perimeter, and the piano and foosball table in the games room - mercifully that's far enough away from the living room that the adults can still relax. The house manager Dawn and her son Scott were a pleasure to deal with - even guiding us to find the house on arrival - I almost guarantee you'll get lost trying to find it. Given that two of our children have sever pet allergies we had to find a house that doesn't allow pets, which isn't that easy to do, I'm happy to report that they were perfectly OK, so if you happen to be in the same boat you can book with confidence. All in all, a terrific and enjoyable break, we would love to do it all again, only downside is my wife wont now stop nipping my ear about getting a log burner installed at home!
    Mr Sharp - February 2017
    Lovely house . We enjoyed our stay. Close to Loch Lomond, and several activities. Shoppings in Glasgow and Edinbrough not far. But the two stairs were not safe for the kids. The road to the house not good.
    Mr Husain - July 2016
    Me and my girl friends from uni, always take a weekend every year to go away together. We walk and we cook big meals and catch up. This house was the perfect venue for it! We sipped gin on the patio, we gathered doing the big dining room table for big dinners and we drove not far to Ben Vorlich for a walk up to the top and some stunning views. The accommodation has everything you need and is perfect for a big group- plenty of hot showers and comfy beds! The bedrooms were huge and we were surprised at just how big this house was. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a good catch up with friends or family- you immediately feel at home. Kate, who showed us round, could not have been more friendly and she was very accommodating. We hope to go back next year.
    Miss Morison - May 2016
    We loved every minute of our stay from the first glimpse of the house through the trees to spotting the deer as we drove out on our way home. The area was great, the scenery was stunning and there was plenty to do. We were planning a return visit on the drive home!
    Dr Paterson - May 2013
    The house is fabulous with lots of space and character. We had guests of all ages during our stay consiting of both family and firends, and the house has set-upmworks for everyone. The younger kids loved the garden and the easy access to the burn made it very exciting for them.
    Mr Cameron - October 2011
    Very spacious comfortable house with well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms were lovely, fresh and clean - view from master bedroom stunning. The king size beds were like new. Bathrooms were modern. Lots of quality towels provided and the bedding was fresh. Garden was big and the patio leading from lounge was great for sitting out. 'River' at bottom of garden was a trickle - though we arrived after a dry spell - so son wasted his time bringing his fishing stuff. Minor negatives (and they really are niggly points!) the swing/play frame had no swings on it, a radiator cover not secured to wall and could be pulled over, both sets of stairs were narrow and spiral so care needed coming down them. Only other point worth pointing out to others is that the house is reached by a farm-like track which was rutted in parts. The cot supplied was old, unstable and one part held together with gaffer tape and this is where the one star is lost. Overall a great place to stay and relax and use as a base for touring the area.
    Mrs Binnie - July 2011
    Overall excellent property - spacious, homely, clean, really comfy beds, good showers. The garden is large, the trampoline was very popular (although the swing is need of some restoration) and the river is a great feature. Secluded but far from isolated with a great little walk over the hill to the village. Some minor niggles - no visitors' book, not enough table/drinks mats and oven-proof dishes and no decent sized mugs for coffee.
    Mrs Loveday - April 2011
