Situated in the spectacular location of the Loch
Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, this spacious east wing of large
detached house has been renovated to a very high standard throughout and makes
a wonderful venue for a holiday. Located within 10 yards of Loch Katrine
and offering breathtaking views of the loch and surrounding hills of Ben
Lomond, Ben Ledi and Ben Venue, Lochside House sits in an isolated corner
of Loch Katrine at Stronachlachar just 150 yards from the pier where the SS
Sir Walter Scott steamer arrives daily during peak season.
This makes an ideal holiday 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.
Between Aberfoyle and Callander is the Farm Life Centre - of appeal to
children especially - where apart from a variety of animals, there are
tractor rides and opportunities to make oatcakes and milk goats. The road
from Aberfoyle to Callander becomes the Duke’s Pass and wends its way
through the impressive 75,000-acre Queen Elizabeth Forest Park - the
entirety of which takes in Loch Ard, Loch Achray and Loch Lubnaig, as well
as Ben Venue, Ben A’an and Ben Ledi. The visitor centre offers a wealth of
information on local flora and fauna and there are several forest walks to
enjoy. To the west lies Inversnaid on the east shore of Loch Lomond where a
seasonal ferry provides a crossing to the west shore. Pubs 4 miles.
Spacious living room with wood-burning stove, oak
floor and bay window overlooking loch. Large dining-room with oak floor.

The Trossachs have some of the most scenic beauty
spots in Scotland and have been made famous by the stories of Rob Roy.
Lochside House at Loch Katrine overlooks the Factors Island that Rob Roy
used to imprison the Dukes factor.
The House is just a few miles from Loch Lomond and the
famous West Highland Way which is a must for all keen walkers. You will be
