This single-storey barn conversion is attached to the original farmhouse on the private estate of Mondhui, within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The cottage dates back several hundred years and sits in an elevated position in the hills above the Lake of Menteith, Scotland’s only lake, with stunning panoramic views of the lake and historic Inchmahome Priory, founded 1238, which Mary Queen of Scots visited.

Mondhui itself has been a settlement since prehistoric times and above the property there are ’cup and rings’ markings. Within the grounds is a duck flighting pond which is ideal for bird watchers, and beside the cottage there is a small pond. The area is a haven for birds and other wildlife including osprey, red kites, red squirrels, red deer, pine marten and badgers. From the door of the cottage you can walk directly up into the Menteith Hills and join the Rob Roy Way with hundreds of miles of forest track easily accessible.

With panoramic views as far as the eye can see over the Lake of Menteith and the surrounding countryside, The Old Barn is an absolutely perfect location for a romantic escape. This delightful cottage is all one level, has been renovated throughout in 2018 and is in a private and peaceful location. The Old Barn has a large covered porch with panoramic views of the Lake of Menteith and garden furniture including an oak table and comfy wicker chairs with cushions so guests can enjoy the view in all seasons regardless of the weather. The cottage is fitted out to a very good standard throughout with oak flooring and a marble tiled floor in the bathroom. The living/dining room is cosy with a magnificent view of the lake from the French windows, which give access to the covered porch with garden furniture. The living room has a 55" 4K Smart TV (full Sky package which includes sports and movies). The bedroom has a kingsize oak bed with high thread count bed linen and plaid curtains and bedspread made by a local interior designer. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke handmade oak units, granite worktops and quality appliances. The bathroom has a marble tiled floor, metro wall tiles, a ’Downton Abbey’. vanity unit, as well as a shower over a P-shaped bath. Directly in front of the cottage is a private 5mx5m deck with chairs and a barbecue,which is a super spot to watch the stars on clear nights, with little light pollution.

This is an ideal location from which to explore one of Scotland’s most picturesque areas or to use as a base to tour central Scotland. Within 10 minutes from the cottage you can be in Aberfoyle, Callander, the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park at the David Marshall Lodge or taking a sail on the Sir Walter Scott steamship on Loch Katrine. Nick Nairn’s famous Cook School is only a few minutes’ drive away as is the popular Lake Hotel which serves good food at the lakeside. The Lake of Menteith Fisheries, Scotland’s foremost Trout Fishing Venue, is a few minutes away as is the boat to Inchmahome Priory on the Lake.

Stirling with its ancient castle, is 20 minutes away. Scenic Loch Lomond, the single biggest expanse of inland water in the British Isles, with its charming villages and bays to explore is only half an hour from the cottage. Gleneagles is 40 minutes’ drive. The cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is less than an hour’s drive with Perth and Edinburgh just over an hour away. There are many historic buildings, castles and distilleries in the area. The Trossachs is a wonderful area to visit and no trip to Scotland would be complete without spending some time in the area. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

The Old Barn can be booked together with The Mews (UK5061) and The Stable (UK5062) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

    The barn is finished to a very high standard with amazing views.Ronnie the owner was on hand every day to give advice on where to go and where to avoid and provide fresh scones every day.This is the perfect place to stay as it is within easy reach of many attractions and scenic views.

    A lovely holiday cottage - secluded location, a quality cottage, stunning views and a very welcoming and knowledgeable host. The bed was comfy, the kitchen was decent, it was nice to have a large TV with Sky, and it was warm when required The nearest shops are in Aberfoyle which is a couple of miles away, and the pub is a short drive away in Monteith. Overall we were really pleased with the accommodation and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone looking for a nice cottage

    Laura has done a splendid job at creating an authentic cottage feel that is true to the roots of the cottage in Scotland. The interior furnishings and kitchenware of of a very high quality and there has certainly been no skimping at all! I struggle to think of anything that could be improved. The only thing missing maybe is a two pin shaver charging point in the bathroom but I’m sure the owner could provide one of those. The location is truly stunning and serene. I had been very stressed at work in the months leading up to the holiday and the view enabled me to relax and I left considerably more chilled than upon arrival! Check out the priory in the middle of the Lake of Menteith, the island is extremely tranquil. Lots of beautiful walks in the national park nearby, recommend Ben A’an and Ben Venue. Conic Hill provides stunning views of Loch Lomond. All in all a top notch holiday at a great cottage, thoroughly recommend and hope to return one day.

    A lovely, well equipped cosy cottage for two. The comfiest bed, with the softest bed sheets! That coupled with the peaceful surroundings, we slept like logs! The view is stunning, which we never tired of looking at. We sat on the veranda every night, looking at the view and watching the wildlife, such as red deer, owls and osprey. Ronnie and Laura are such kind and friendly hosts. Nothing is too much trouble to ensure your stay is perfect.

    We had a very pleasant week this winter at The Old Barn. The place is simply great and is even nicer in real life than it is on the photos. The owners were extremely forthcoming. While it was too cold when we were there, we both believed that it would be great to have breakfast or dinner outside. We would and will definitely return!
