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.

Proximity to Loch Lomond Golf Club

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect overflow location for our guests during our golf event at Loch Lomond Golf Club. The house had a wonderful aspect over the lake, and was very well organised. Our guests enjoyed the hot tub after long days of golfing, and made the most of the large dining table for a catered dinner, and after dinner relaxation with the pool table. The housekeeper and her team were fantastic, and we felt very relaxed.

Hen Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 19 stayed at Stuckgowan for my daughter's hen weekend 2-4 September 2016. The house is very impressive and is located in beautiful surroundings with stunning views of Loch Lomond. On arrival we were welcomed and shown all of the facilities by David. He had the aga fired up and ready just in case we wanted to use it and the jacuzzi on the terrace was at temperature and ready for use too. We had mixed weather over the weekend so used the outdoor facilities when it was dry and indoor facilities when it was wet. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The decor, furniture and fittings are stylish and comfortable and there was lots of room for the 19 of us to socialise and relax. We had a fabulous stay which was over all too soon but have already started to think of other occasions that might merit a return visit to Stuckgowan.

A Second Home to Many

  • 5 of 5

2016 was our groups third time of visiting stuckgowan house, which says it all about how much we all love it there.

Absolutely no complaints with any equipment, or lack of equipment. If you've never been before, the pictures don't even do the house, and particularly it's location, justice, and the size and space of the whole property, has allowed some of the best ever memories for me and my friends, for the past three years, and we're certainly planning on making it a 4th year.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stuckgowan House over a long weekend in May, there were 13 of us. We were all really impressed with the condition of the house, it is beautifully decorated and really comfortable. The views over the loch were amazing and the hot tub was well used....as was the cinema room. The kitchen was fantastic, well stocked with essentials and big enough for everyone to get together for breakfast and lunch. We were lucky enough to have really good weather, so the only thing that could have been improved on was some loungers or comfortable chairs for sitting on while enjoying the views from the terrace. Organising the weekend was really easy and stress free thanks to the regular communications. We will definitely be coming back for another long weekend!

Off. The. Scale.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to explain how amazing Stuckgowan house was as a venue for a hen weekend. The house was breathtaking as well as the views and it still felt huge even with 18 women staying there.

Perfect venue for any type of weekend getaway. The girls all loved it and the bride to be was so overcome with emotion on seeing her house for the weekend.

Wow!

3 days - Work get together

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a location and what a house...David and Michelle who look after the property were brilliant too...

We went there for 3 days of work but wanted a different type of location to help free thinking...and wow the house delivered!

The communication from Annie and Helen prior to arriving was very good...I organise alot of these awaydays for companys and although the houses I usually rent are cheaper Stuckgowan house still delivered value...

So great 3 days and thanks to all that helped organise the event...
