Enjoy the beauty and serenity of Scotland with Loch Lomond holiday cottages.

Loch Lomond is a 24 mile long Loch in Scotland which provides a natural border between Stirlingshire and Dunbartonshire. It is the largest loch in Scotland by surface area (although Loch Ness, being deeper, has more content water) and is a popular holiday destination for both national and international visitors. The loch and surrounding area, the Trossachs, have been a National Park since July 2002 and in 2005 Radio Times readers voted the area as the sixth greatest natural wonder in Britain.

HomeAway has a large number of holiday cottages in Loch Lomond which are highly suitable for visiting groups of all sizes. From much larger cottages, which can entertain ten guests or more, to cosy and intimate apartments, which are ideal for couples and smaller families, there is a wealth of choice. Traditional stone cottages hide modern interiors with well stocked and equipped kitchens whilst DVD players and satellite televisions are in plentiful supply. Many of the log cabins in Loch Lomond also feature on-site parking and gardens where the stunning countryside can be appreciated during quiet, relaxed evenings.

Although the Loch welcomes visitors for all reasons, including walking, water sports and fishing, the surrounding areas in Scotland are also extremely inviting. Holiday cottages in Loch Ness are the perfect base for the area’s unique blend of scientific enquiry and mysticism whilst apartments in Aberdeen are close to the many shops, amenities and the city’s thriving nightlife.

Exploration: Loch Lomond is set among some of the finest and most celebrated countryside in the United Kingdom and it’s waiting to be explored.

Whilst boat trips and cruises are plentiful, with marinas throughout the Loch, there are also a number of places where watersports such as canoeing or windsurfing may be enjoyed. In addition, the Loch is teaming with salmon, sea trout, pike, perch, eels, chub and roach among others, making it the ideal spot for anglers.

Family activities: The area is welcoming to families of all sizes and ages, with plenty of options to keep everyone occupied. The Blair Drummond Safari Park is open daily and comprises exotic wildlife in replicas of their natural habitats, together with a variety of shows and other activities.

Although it's a fairly secluded rural retreat, it is an ideal base for discovering central Scotland but also has a feel of exclusivity and peacefulness, nestled away from the buzz with a magnificent outlook to the hills. The Kist is a contemporary, stylish and absolutely spotless haven with everything you need in place. The owner is extremely helpful and friendly. When we visited in 2016, we were snowed in (absolutely beautiful) and the owner helped to escort us back down the single track hill on departure. We will return, probably time and time again, no matter the season.

We found the house big enough with room to spare. Everything we needed was there. Although our holiday was a New Year celebration, we were never cold. We also enjoyed all the various attractions in the area, and the younger ones amongst us enjoyed spending time on the estuary! With a large conservatory and garden, this would be a super place to stay in the summer months.
