Description

Set amongst dramatic peaks, waterfalls, hidden caves and forest covered slopes, Balochyle Cottage offers everything for the outdoor enthusiast.

Located a mere 5 minutes from the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park this spacious semi-detached holiday cottage is one of four dwellings created from a restored courtyard farm steading and is located within a quiet private estate. Woodland walks are available directly from the door and it is ideal for walkers and cyclists of all abilities with a magnificent diversity of scenery boasting dramatic peaks, waterfalls, hidden caves and mysterious, forest covered slopes. Providing a tranquil location to either relax and escape from the trials of everyday life, or a fantastic base from which to explore the spectacular scenery and history of the area. The deep glens and narrow sea lochs are typical of the West Coast and there you can find a huge selection of Scottish wildlife. Red deer, roe deer, buzzards and golden eagles to name but a few. The area is also full of history. Standing stones, burial cairns and rock carvings abound. The town of Dunoon is within easy reach and has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a steamer cruise and explore the hills and lochs of the Cowal Peninsula.

    The cottage was dirty the fridge did not work so had to throw food away, the kitchen sink tap had been broken off and left in the sink , was fixed two days later. The living room suite was that stained we had to cover it up with throws before been able to sit on it. The oven was old and not all of it worked , all in all the cottage needs a lot of work and would not stay there every again in its present state. We where forced to stay there after the cottage we booked flooded and this was the only property they had in the same area. Very disappointed with the whole holiday.

    Cottage in good location but in need of some improvement. Various issues with equipment and facilities, some of which were dealt with during our stay such as provision of new washing machine and dryer, neither of which initially worked, but other issues unresolved. Main fridge didn't work, freezer badly iced up, cooker and hob controls worn and unreadable, extractor fan didn't work and some basic utensils missing (e.g. oven gloves, grill pan). Secondary fridge available in utility room but not ideal with seven staying. Outside garden bench/picnic table was rotten.

    The cottage was lovely and spacious but rather worn and tired and need of an update. the garden was not dog safe as they could easily get under the fence and escape to say hello to the sheep!!! The location was fabulous we loved the hills and woods surrounding us. The dogs were in seventh heaven!! Loads of fantastic walks. You need to be aware of the ferry costs if you want to get to Loch Lomand and Glasgow with out an hour and a half drive around (though you pass spectacular countryside).

    Absolutely delighted with this huge property. Loads of space. Very private and ideal for a family break. Even the dogs enjoyed it.

    The cottage was lovely and in lovely surroundings, however it could just do with the decorating freshening up and a good clean. Overall we all had a nice time the local area is gorgeous
