The location was perfect - snow was an added bonus for the two boys and our cocker spaniel. This a terrific house with loads of space to accommodate mixed age groups. We were two grandparents with our two sons and daughter in laws plus two grandchildren, age 10 and 3. Loads of walks and very near other tourist sites if required. We didn't need to visit any. Pub across the road did a good meal - a bit slow but we weren't going anywhere and it was worth waiting for.
Would visit again!

“Great accommodation in a wonderful location”

We stayed as a group of 4 adults and two children. The property is well-maintained and spacious, with more than enough room for our party of 6. Kitchen is well stocked, with good wifi and a nice coffee shop a minute's walk away. The location is perfect - easy access from Stirling, but on the footsteps of the mountains and some great walks (including walks for little ones).

Of particular note was that, through no fault of the owners, we managed to overpay. To their credit, the owners noticed this at a later date, told us immediately and arranged a refund.

Highly recommended.

“Perfect house in a beautiful setting.”

We stayed here for a week with my father in law and his dog. It's a fantastic place with a great open plan space downstairs where we cooked (occasionally). Played cards etc. Despite its open plan layout, we weren't cold at all.

The accommodation is top standard very clean and modern. One of my favourite self catering places we have stayed in. Also the owners are very good at communicating.

Location is fantastic we walked up Ben Ann which is well worth doing. Great spot for exploring the various LOCH's. There are so many lovely walks, you'll be spoilt for choice. One of our favourite walks was to Ben Lawers where we saw golden eagles.

Every morning I grabbed a coffee from the brooch cafe next door which is also superb and does great lunches and cakes.

The Lade in is a great spot for dinner. Very friendly, good service and they welcome dogs!

Fab holiday and we didn't want to leave

Highly recommend

“Great place for a family holiday especially if you like cycling”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Seven of us stayed (a mix of grandchildren, children and parents from 5 to 65) and had a great time. The house was very comfortable and spacious with plenty of room for younger children and adults not to get on top of each other. The location is great with a village shop a few minutes walk away and Callander with small supermarkets and other shops around 15 minutes drive away. There is a great local playpark for younger children next to the village shop and a really good cafe in the park next to the house. What I enjoyed most was cycling with my wife and daughter along the local cycle paths to Killin and Callander and most of all a ride along quiet backroads to Balquhidder and along loch voil for lunch at Monachyle Mhor hotel. We were lucky with the weather with little rain and surprisingly quite a lot of sun. The midges weren't too bad either.

“Excellent well appointed accomodation in great location”

Long weekend at this property at the beginning of July. The house was spacious, very clean and well appointed. Everything that could be needed was there, the beds were comfortable and the upstairs shower was a delight to use. The weather was not great but the easy access to the cycle route meant that we could walk in the countryside without wellies and the dog particularly appreciated the underfloor heating to dry off after her walks. The location is great for exploring the Trossachs and surrounding country with Falls of Dockart at Killin worth a visit as is Kenmore on Loch Tay. Hope to visit for longer next time.

Strathyre is a lovely little village between Callander and Lochearnhead, with Loch Voil and Loch Lubnaig on the doorstep. The house is next to a park with the river running behind and the Broch Cafe serving good coffee and tasty food a short walk away. The location is even further improved by its proximity to four of the Mhor culinary establishments: Mhor 84, Monachle Mhor, Mhor Fish, and Mhor Bread, all of which are world class.
The house itself is delightful. It's clean and spacious, with an airy and light seating area in the entryway where we spent many hours reading, drinking a glass of wine, and watching the bats setting out for their nightly forage. The open plan living area, with a balcony overlooking the dining room, is a wonderful space for a large group to be together without being on top of each other. Highly recommended!
