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.

This time we spent the 11 nights across Christmas and New Year in this beautiful retreat. Iona had put up Christmas decorations and draped Santa Stockings on the bottom of our bed, and the Shortbread filled biscuit tin was very scrummy indeed. We arrived along with storm Barbara but once settled in we were very toasty whilst looking out at the wind and rain that battered the area for 48 hours. We enjoyed that storm time to relax away from the stresses of modern living, cooking in the well equipped kitchen and relaxing in the lounge area. Our bedroom was lovely and warm with a very comfy bed and well appointed en-suite bathroom. The Kist is well placed for trips to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, the three local villages of Kippen, Balfron and Fintry are but a short drive away. Stirling is just over 30 minutes away and a short drive to Milngavie let's you take the great train service into Glasgow's Argyle Street Railway Station. Iona is always on hand if needed but never intrusive, she has the balance just right. Iona is a lovely owner and you will find lots of Iona's creative work throughout The Kist, check out www.ionabuchanan.com to see her work. Thanks Iona for a fab Christmas and New Year. Ian & Lesley.
