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 day beds (these are less shorter than normal beds and would be suitable for any onf 5ft 2" and under). 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. Outside there is a 7 seater hot tub which also has mood lighting. It 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.

A Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Stuckgowan along with 20 family and friends.We were all there as a surprise for my husband's sixtieth birthday,we had a fantastic three days and everyone loved the house and we really didn't want to leave .The children had a great time they loved the cinema and the hot tub. The only complaint I have is that there was only one dishwasher working and as you can imagine with 21 of us that's a lot of dishes!!.We all want to return so thank you for providing such a beautiful house for our stay .

50th Birthday at Stuckgowan

  • 5 of 5

We booked 2 nights at Stuckgowan to celebrate my 50th Birthday in March.

Everything from start to finish was PERFECT. Booking was easy, website detail and pictures are comprehensive and accurate and if anything the house is MORE beautiful than the pictures.

We arranged with Michelle to arrive early at 2pm on Friday and David showed us round the property and made us feel very welcome. We were blown away with the quality of the house decor, furnishing and fittings as well as the location and the views. Simply stunning. The weather was incredible - wall to wall sunshine in Scotland in March!

The walks up behind the house we beautiful with great views across to Ben Lomond and Loch Lomond opening up in front of you.

A couple of tips that might help visitors.

1) We arranged Tesco to deliver to the house which worked well. Saved us lugging lots of food and drink to the house. Their drivers are very familiar with the house and arrived punctually.

2) We arranged a delivery from Princess Rose Chinese Restaurant in Balloch (www.princessrose.co.uk)

The food was very tasty and arrived perfectly hot and on time. We had pre-paid for the order and the restaurant was very helpful.

3) Mobile phone signal is weak(ish) so make sure you give the house landline number to delivery drivers etc.

I would go back to Stuckgowan in a heartbeat and am already trying to think of another reason to book !

Wonderful hen weekend in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, comfortably sleeping a large group of us. Every detail had been thought about (although our one complaint is we could only find one bottle opener, but perhaps with so many cupboards of everything else, we didn't look hard enough!) Despite heavy rain for the first day, it didn't dampen our fun, with so much to do inside and the hot tub to keep us warm outside. The large dining table was a great addition, allowing everyone to sit down together, rather than having to split up or squeeze in. And cinema room?! Fab. We are already looking for a reason to come back!
