This pretty mid-terrace holiday cottage, which the owners have used for many years as their own holiday property, sits in the small hamlet of Gartness. It was originally built to house mill workers from Gartness Mill on the nearby river, Endrick Water. Situated near the start of the West Highland Way, it has fantastic views of the Campsie and Fintry Hills and is surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Affectionately named after the family member who originally owned it, Auntie Sheila’s Cottage is quiet and rural, yet equidistant between Glasgow and Stirling, both approximately 30 minutes away by car. Within a short drive, you can experience the delights of Aberfoyle, known as the ’Gateway to the Highlands’, walk along the shores of Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine, or explore the villages and lochs of the Trossachs. It’s ideal for walkers, with the West Highland Way passing the cottage, easy access to the nearby John Muir Way and close to the Campsie Fells and the Arrochar Alps, providing a wonderful holiday retreat and an ideal base for friends and family to spend time together.
You’ll love exploring the nearby Pots of Gartness, a series of rocky pools which provide a great place to watch salmon on their way up river to spawn and you’re close to the beautiful and mythical Finnich Glen which houses the Devil’s Pulpit, featured in the famous TV series ’Outlander’. For whisky lovers, the most southerly Highland malt whisky distillery, Glengoyne Distillery, is situated at nearby Dumgoyne. If you enjoy fishing, then permits for the Endrick River are available from the garage in the nearby village of Gartocharn, with fishing also available on the Lake of Menteith.
Stirling is 18 miles away with its ancient castle, Wallace monument and Bannockburn Visitor Centre, along with many historic links to people such as Rob Roy Macgregor, William Wallace and Mary Queen of Scots, all of whom had a part to play in the history of this area. There are lots of film locations to be visited within a short drive including Doune Castle which became the fictional Castle Leoch in ’Outlander’. Glasgow, the city of culture, entertainment and shopping can be reached within half an hour, and Edinburgh in 90 minutes’ drive.
For cyclists, the cottage is close to National Cycle Network Route 7, which connects Balloch on the southern banks of Loch Lomond with Aberfoyle, Strathyre, Callander, Lochearnhead and Killin. Beach 20 miles. Shop and restaurant 3 miles, pub 2 miles.
