Overview

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Loch Lomond, Helensburgh & Dunbartonshire - Stuckgowan House

9 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Slps 19 - 21. 2 Night Weekends from 4pm Friday - 4pm Sun

Stuckgowan House is a Georgian Grade A listed building which has undergone an extensive restoration programme and now provides luxurious and spacious accommodation for up to 21 guests.

The accommodation offers 1 twin bedded en-suite bedroom and 1 four poster en-suite bedroom, both located on the ground floor. There are two staircases, the smaller staircase by the kitchen leads to a double and a small twin room and a house bathroom. The main staircase leads to the other bedrooms. There is a double bedroom, a triple bedroom (1 double and 1 single bed), a double with 8ft round bed, 2 doubles both with children's day beds (these are less than 5ft long so they really are just for children). There are 2 house shower rooms and a house bathroom with teardrop bath and shower. There is also a little tea and coffee station with fridge so you don't need to go to the kitchen for your morning cuppa.

Also on the ground floor you will find the study / library, with open fire as well as card table. Sitting room and dining room both with open fireplaces and all with views over the loch. There is a large and very well equipped kitchen and pantry area with seating for 14 - 18 guests.

The lower ground floor or the entertainment zone as it is known, is where you will find the cinema room which has a proper 126 inch cinema screen with surround sound system, extensive video library, Wii and XBox. Games room and bar with a pool table, darts board, log burning stove and bar. There is also a children's play room with table and chairs, sink, fridge and lots of games.

The house has a state of the art music system, you simply download the music of your choice from the website and you can play this in any of the ground floor rooms or lower ground floor rooms and also in the 7 seater hot tub which also has mood lighting. The hot tub has been positioned at the front of the house to take full advantage of the glorious view over the Loch.

2 Night weekend breaks from 4pm Friday with a later 4pm check out on Sundays only. We also accept American Express.

The grounds are extensive and home to many rare trees not normally found in Scotland, this is why each bedroom has been named after a tree that you will find somewhere on the estate.

There is a patio area with table and chairs and hot tub. The entrance also has an electric gate.

The house is set in woodland and there are several streams so please note that children will need supervision.

The house is within easy access of Glasgow airport and there are trains from the airport which run to Balloch Station, approximately 16 miles away. There is also a train station in Tarbet, 2 miles north of the house, which has trains from Glasgow central station traveling north, through Tarbet and up to Fort William.

Magical house in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all our expectations! Very well maintained and well equipped property with great space and facilities for all 18 of us. All rooms of a high spec and very clean - hot tub and cinema - WOW! Excellent personal service from the agents/owners - very easy to contact, prior instructions were clear and there to meet and greet on arrival - nothing was too much trouble! This house would be hard to beat!!

We were speechless.Perfect venue for our wedding.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we got out of the car and entered the hallway we knew we were in for a treat!! The pictures do not prepare you for the size of this property - it was massive!!! The house is grand, clean and full of character. It was homely and comfortable too. I got married to my partner of 10 years (to the day!!) in the main sitting room, and the house allowed us to hold the most beautiful and intimate wedding with two families that due to distance, don't usually get to spend much time together. We thank the team at Stuckgowan for making this possible. Thank you. Lucy and Liam.

Spectacular property and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Came here for a friend's 30th and this house was unbelievable. It has everything you could think of and more. It has all the little details and to such a high standard. I couldn't explain and these pictures don't do the place justice at all, hard to understand till you go. The place is huge but you can't tell until you walk through the door. If I could afford it I would go a few times and would highly recommend to anyone.

Family holiday in Scotland!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic holiday in a fabulous house!! Very well equipped, clean and comfortable!! We had two birthday parties in the house (we were a party of 13 and a mix of ages) - both went well!! Lovely location! The hot tub overlooking the loch and mountains is wonderful! And the cinema room was a particular hit with the younger members of the group!! All you could want for a brilliant holiday in a great setting!!!

Fantastic Weekend at a Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

Struckgowan provided a perfect location for my wife's surprise birthday celebration. The house is truely stunning with top of the range fittings and tasteful decor.. We were a party of 22 including 4 young children and families of various ages. There was something for everyone including fabulous views and a high tech movie cinema fully equipped with the latest games and films. Catering supplied by Taste Marine was first class. We look forward to coming back in the future. Many thanks David

GREAT PROPERTY, SUPERB LOCATION - JUST BRILLIANT

  • 5 of 5

Long weekend for my 60th birthday. Couldn't have picked better - the fantastic weather did help though! All my family - 19 of us - had a ball!! Ages from 4 to 60 thoroughly enjoyed the house, the cinema room, the huge kitchen and the hot tub!! Only 20 minutes walk from Tarbet. For a long weekend I would definitely recommend!
