In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


This property is located adjacent to the Balnaha Forest - ideal for hill walking, cycling and experiencing the stunning views.

This delightful, semi-detached holiday cottage is situated in the hamlet of Balnaha Forest and has a traditional cedar shingle roof. It is located immediately adjacent to the forest, where hill walks and cycle routes abound, and is also within easy walking distance from the Victorian village of Strathyre. There are endless miles of forest roads and trails to explore, both for walking and cycling, from a gentle stroll by the River Balvaig to a vigorous hike to the summit of Benvane, or a relaxing boat trip on Loch Katrine. The tree-clad slopes around the village which sweep down to the shores of Loch Lubnaig change from spring greens to autumn russets and golds, making the surroundings spectacularly beautiful all year. The area is also rich in Scottish history, with many stories relating to Rob Roy Macgregor, whose grave can be found in the kirkyard at Balquidder. The bustling tourist town of Callander is only 10 miles away and can also be reached on the cycle path. Within easy driving distance are Loch Lomond, Gleneagles, 50 minutes, and Stirling, 1 hour. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth can be reached in 1½ hours. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The cottage was not without its problems but was comfortable enough for us to have a nice Christmas. Warm and cosy. Cooked full Christmas dinner on Christmas day. All the locals very friendly one even towed our car out of the snow.

    We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at Benvane cottage, very clean and cosy. Our bed was extremely comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised by the cottages location, and enjoyed trips to Killin, Callander and Loch Katrine. Plenty of places within decent distance to explore, as well as hill walks. There is a shorter moderate forest hill walk ten minutes walk from the cottage called Benn An t-Sidhean and is sign posted. There isn’t any WiFi at the cottage itself but this proved to be advantageous giving us an escape from the madness of daily life I thoroughly recommend it!

    Lovely cottage, and with utility room, ideal for dogs. Perfect location with plenty of walks and easy access to places of interest. Local Inn - good food, friendly staff and dogs very welcome. Our only gripe was trying to contact the owner , both prior to going and once there ! Messages were left on all three phone nos. and none of our calls were returned. One evening an alarm went off for no apparent reason , high pitched, terrifying the dogs and we couldn't stop it. We tried contacting the owner more than once for advice but to no avail. Eventually, we managed to remove the battery and stop the alarm.
