“Lovley Cottages On Loch Erin.”
Reviewed June 22, 2008

Briar Cottage is located on the shore of beautifull Lake (Loch) Erin in Lochearnhead Scotland. North of Sterling about 35 miles.
The main building used to be a B&B but now it is just "self catering" in a second building "Little Briar Cottage". More cottages are planned. In off seasons minumum stay is 3 nights while in peak season 1 week is the minimum stay.
Lovley location overlooking the Lake. Quaint cottages all of stone with thatched roofs. The main cottage dates to the 17th century.
Kim & Fraser Proven are your hosts & are excellent Innkeepers, not to mention "real nice prople"....
Many quaint Pubs in the area for dining out as well as numerous water sports on the lake.
This lake also has a "Monster" called "Little Erin". You can see it in front of the property.
For a lovley vacation this place I highly recommend.
I give it a 5* Rating.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
TRIPADVISOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE 5 OUT OF 5 bubble rating, 2016 AWARD WINNER: We (Kim and Fraser) will welcome you on arrival at Briar Cottages where we offer a spacious luxury holiday cottage for 4 (plus baby) and a charming pet friendly cottage for 4 plus 1 dog or 2 plus 2 pets in the friendly village of Lochearnhead. The cottages and grounds offer outstanding views south over Loch Earn to Glenample and Stuc A Chroin behind Edinample Castle, free trout fishing in season, a petanque piste with boule and cochinette, fun 6 flag lawn putting in the loch garden, a jetty, summerhouse, slipway, #BLiSStrail sculptures, moorings and picnic tables within 3 acre landscaped gardens. Detached and finished in local stone to complement our B listed thatched cottage, both holiday cottages are elevated within the gardens and are 60 metres apart. Briar Steading sleeps 4 in king and twin bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms (one offering a spacious walk in wet shower room). A travel cot and high chair are available in Briar Steading. Completed in winter 2010, the bedrooms are separated by an open plan lounge for comfort and privacy. Glass windows and doors lead to the patio garden from the lounge and bedrooms enabling plenty of light, stunning views all year round and individual access to and from the patio. The comfortable 26 foot open plan living space includes a wood-burning stove, dining area, and a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. The interior is tastefully decorated in natural and warm hues reflecting the mixed colours within our local stone which can be seen in the waterfall that sits behind the self-catering property. Free WiFi can be accessed in all rooms and on the patio outside. Briar Steading is a pet-free environment, however our dog-friendly cottage Little Briar is charming and cosy with a kitchen dining and lounge area overlooking the loch. The pet friendly cottage sleeps 2-4 in one double and one twin room with a bathroom/shower. Dogs adore the run around space behind the cottage. One couple can bring up to 2 dogs and 4 people may bring one pet. Both cottages are WiFi enabled. Guests can access the Proven's loch garden for free trout fishing in season plus there are moorings, a slipway and jetty, petanque piste (bocce ball), picnic tables and summer house. Pets are welcome to swim if you let them. When you are booked in for 7 nights or more you will be invited to view inside Briar Cottage's lounge, once the old byre or cow shed in our restored b-listed thatched cottage. See a fine example of an original Scots pine cruck framed ceiling. We will be delighted to share stories of past tenants from local clans MacGregor and McLaren. Descendants of these clans often return to the area to see the house and grounds and to take part in the traditional Highland Games in Lochearnhead in July. Briar Cottages offer excellent view points for photography - from the top of the garden near the old Lochearnhead to Comrie railway walkway - to the jetty on Loch Earn. This is a terrific area for outdoor sports, wildlife, touring Scotland and relaxation. There are two hotels just 200m from the garden gates and many more wonderful places to eat and drink within a short drive. I (Kim) am a member of the Federation of Small Businesses, have Association of Self Catering Scotland Quality Assurance grading and am Chair of The Loch Earn Tourism Information group. I will be delighted to assist with any queries. We aim to offer you a comfortable, enjoyable and memorable holiday experience at Briar Cottages and look forward to welcoming you soon. ... more   less
