Description

Situated in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, this property sits on an isolated corner of Loch Katrine.

Charming and spacious, these two attached cottages (which comprise the west wing of Stronachlachar House), sit in an isolated corner of Loch Katrine at Stronachlachar, just 50 yards from the pier where the SS Sir Walter Scott steamer arrives daily during peak season. Situated in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park within 50 yards of Loch Katrine providing breathtaking views of the loch and surrounding hills of Ben Lomond, Ben Ledi and Ben Venue. An ideal location from which to absorb one of Scotland’s most picturesque areas. Stronachlachar lies only a short distance from the colourful and welcoming villages of Aberfoyle and Callander which offer a choice of pubs, restaurants, unique shops and a host of colourful festivals all year round. To the west lies Inversnaid on the east shore of Loch Lomond where a seasonal ferry provides a crossing to the west shore. Nearby activities include golf, sailing and a range of other watersports and leisure club facilities. A wealth of walking and cycling routes also provide opportunities to discover some unforgettable views. Shop and pub 11 miles.

    Our family holiday was a humerous and delightful one. We were awed by how spacious, clean, cosy, warm, and beautifully located. The locals were very kind and made us feel oh so welcome. The only thing would be if i had to comment on any improvement, it would be that the shared BBQ area is a little tricky to get to for my mum due to the stairs up to it are a little slippery at times. Overall we all loved it and would gladly return. Shame about midgies haha.

    My family and I had a great time at Wattie cottage. We loved the log fire and cosy living room. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the modern kitchen had plenty of cooking equipment, dishes and crockery including some for the children. The surrounding area is beautiful and a boat trip on Loch Katrine is a must. If you're planning a BBQ up there, the local butcher in Aberfoyle is worth a visit to stock up on delicious home made burgers, sausages etc. The cottage is around 10 miles from Aberfoyle up a windy and single lane road so its not easy to just pop to the shops but we had stocked up on supplies and were happy to explore the area around the cottage and when raining, stayed in the cosy living room with the jigsaws, games and books. We have lots of happy memories from our trip and would definitely recommend a stay at Wattie Cottage.

    Flowers, biscuits and even doggy treats greeted our arrival! Very spacious and comfortable, overall. Plenty of room for shoes & coats, huge lounge and most of the beds were comfortable. Great having 3 toilets! Would have been nice to have heating on when we arrived as house quickly cools down when it's off. Very small kitchen with poor quality, tired pans and could have done with more cutlery for 8 people. Table has high bench seat on one side - too high for adults but good for younger children. Area great for biking and walking. Worth popping over to Loch Lomond (10 mins in car) to explore Rob Roy's cave or just enjoy part of West Highland Way. Recommend GoApe in Aberfoyle - brilliantly long zipwires and lots to see in the forest. Definitely recommend Ben Lomond (less than an hour driving) as superb paths and awesome views. Also Ben Ledi, near Callander. We stocked up to avoid shopping but there's a decent, small Co-op in Aberfoyle (25 min) and a slightly bigger Tesco in Callander. Stirling is about an hour away.

    Lovely, friendly, helpful owners, while also having a professional approach. As soon as you arrive, walk over and make friends with Brian who manages the Pier Cafe. He's great as well and will help in anything he can, for example arrange for papers to be brought in from town. If you are a townie, note that this is 10 miles from the nearest shops, along a single track road, so bring everything you want - no nipping to the shops here! If the weather allows brilliant walks with great views.

    We had an absolutely brilliant time at Wattie cottage. Very clean, tidy and comfortable. Big comfortable bedrooms and having just one proper shower was not a problem!Plenty of hot water (there were 6 of us!) and very warm and cosy, especially the log fire!! Location was stunning!! A long way to the local town but this was not a problem, just forward planning needed. Lovely walks around the Loch and the cruise on Loch Katrine was lovely! The cafe is just a stones throw away and open year round! They do a very tasty Hot Chocolate too! Thankyou to the owners of Wattie cottage for making our first trip to Scotland (a very long way from Cornwall!) a memorable one! We will certainly recommend your cottage to everyone.
