The Honeyholm was originally worker cottages and is one of the oldest homes in the area.The cottage has been fully renovated as you can see from our facebook page. We have retained old stone walls and the original fireplace inside., now with a large wood burning stove. Adjacent to Honeyholm stone bridge and the river Endrick, the cottage has a fabulous location and wonderful views of the Dumgoyne and Fintry hills.

What makes this cottage unique

Honeyholm is a gem of a cottage , with charm and history as well as modern comforts.

To sit on the patio and watch the river go by and the sun on the hills is my ideal day.

Comfortable and quiet

Our stay was great! The location was beautiful but we had a few problems finding it in the dark. We had plenty of room for our 2 families totalling 7 people. Thanks for the kind hospitality of Julie and family. We enjoyed our time close to Balfron!

Lovely relaxing time spent in Honeyholm..... Comfortable with lovely views of rolling highland countryside. Fully equipped with all you could need. ( only thing needed.... Possible a few more bowls?)

Kids loved the trampoline and archery..... There was lots of toys and games to keep them amused inside as well. Great base to explore all the magic of Scotland!

The Honeyholm is a 400 year old cottage nesting in the Strathendrick valley adjacent to the Loch lomond and Trossachs National Park. located in a beautiful riverside setting with stunning views across open fields to the Dumgoyne hills and the Campsies.

Just one mile from the historic village of Balfron the cottage is perfectly situated for access to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National park as well as the historic seats of Stirling , Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The Honeyholm is in a countryside setting, and surrounded by the historic villages of Balfron (Home of Scotland's best 10K!!), Drymen,Kippen and Killearn. As such the villages have a rich history of Rob Roy Macgregor and have wonderful local fairs and Agricultural shows throughout the year.

The honeyholm is surrounded by farms and wonderful open countryside.The Village of Balfron was birth place to Alexander Greek Thompson. One of Glasgow's famous architects of old.

The picturesque village has a full sized swimming pool and well equipped gym, Doyles deli, butchers,supermarket ,Wonderland gift and bespoke jewellery shop , Rona Smart massage and holistic therapy ,two pubs and a small array of shops.

The area has a multitude of farm Shops ,so you may sample local produce, and pubs /coffee shops if you wish to eat out.

The Balfron 10K at the end of April is very popular and the surrounding villages have an array of fares and shows on throughout the year. From the Fintry music festival to Aberfoyle's mushroom! festival, there is something for everyone.
