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.

It is situated on the spacious and pretty premises of the owners. The Landlady Iona is the best host we ever came across - very helpful and just a nice woman! We highly recommend it also because of the area that gives you many ideas where to go. Stirling, Loch Lomand, Fort William, Oban etc.... Thank you, we had a very good time, including the weather.

                                                                                                    4 of 5

The booking manager, Judith was so helpful and gracious. The entire reservation process was so professional and pleasant! The cottage is BEAUTIFUL - sitting well back from the road, it is part of a larger complex including the private Loch Dhu House. You'd be hard pressed to find better views over a morning coffee anywhere. Very well equipped - electric tea kettle, coffee maker, dishware and most importantly some leftover "stock" as in salt/pepper, spices - a real plus when you are trying to cook without buying to supply an entire pantry. The beds were really comfortable, the living room was cozy - perfect for watching the BCC (Cottage comes with a basic satellite package) The on-site manager, Gareth was pleasant and very prompt when we had a glitch with the TV and took care of it quickly. The week we stayed just flew by and we loved every minute of it. The cottage is only a few miles outside of Aberfoyle, which is a truly charming town in the Trossachs with a lot to offer anyone who wanted to experience the region and all things Scottish! However, be prepared to drive some very narrow and not in great shape roads to get there, and understand that what looks like a 5 minute drive doesn't equate in reality. You cannot speed when you are on a road that is at best a lane and 1/2 and around blind turns, hills and between lochs and rocks! There are a few things that I'll make note of: The turn back to the cottage is not well marked at all. I honestly thought it was a logging road when we first went back. There was also a lot of clear cut lumber area which we hadn't known about - but overall didn't cause problems. There is NO cell phone service that we could get - even climbing up the path to the back road and up to the top of the hill. So we communicated in town. The cottage information should also be updated a bit - the "DVD/Video rental" mentioned has not existed for many years, according to the townspeople we asked. But with the TV package - no real issue. Finally - having a small box of laundry soap on site for guests would be a great addition. We had dishwasher tabs, but ended up buying a regular container of laundry tabs, the balance of which we left for the next guest. Hope they enjoyed their stay as much as us! Don't miss: Wee Blevin Tea shop, Forth Inn, Wool Center, Doune Hill walk.
