The best views imaginable and incredible hosts: you get a panoramic view of the Loch and gardens from all the downstairs rooms. Alison and Yas are the most enthusiastic and hard working owners who are building something special alongside the Loch. I am in a wheelchair but nothing is too much trouble: there is a disabled toilet on the ground... More

We spent a week in Altskeith with family and friends over the New Year period when the weather was particularly wet. On the few occasions when it wasn't raining, the views from the house were stupendous, you would never tire of gazing out over Loch Ard or Ben Lomond from the conservatory. Our group comprised of our grandson, aged two... More

Altskeith is tucked away on the shore of Loch Ard far enough from Aberfoyle to be serenely peaceful, but close enough to have all the amenities within 10 minutes drive. The location is really incomparable, set back from the road with the shoreline just beyond the garden wall, there’s also small private beach from which to enjoy the ever-changing light... More
