Location & Activities

View Cottage is conveniently situated for local amenities in Lochearnhead, the village store being within 100 metres of the foot of the drive.

A convivial drink or meal can be enjoyed in the village’s two hotels, both within 10 minutes walk of the cottage.

Set in the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park the cottage provides an ideal base for a range of outdoor activities:

Walking

Whether you enjoy a strenuous hill walk or a quiet evening stroll you’ll find plenty of variety nearby. There are numerous Munros and Corbetts within 30 minute’s drive including our two local Munros of Ben Vorlich and Stuc a’ Chroin. Easier walks can be enjoyed from the cottage and throughout the National Park.

Golf

Picturesque courses such as St. Fillans, Comrie, Killin, Crieff and Callander are within 30 minutes drive. Gleneagles is easily reached within the hour. The Perthshire Green Card offers discounted green fees on 19 of the county’s courses.

Cycling

National Cycle Route 7 passes through Lochearnhead giving traffic free cycling on the former railway track between Callander and Killin. Scenic local rides can also be enjoyed on the quiet roads along Balquhidder Glen and the southern shores of Loch Earn and Loch Tay.

Water Sports

Loch Earn offers a whole range of water-based activities including boat rental and facilities for launching your own craft.

Fishing

Salmon and trout can be fished on Loch Earn, either by boat or from the bank. Permits and bait are available locally. A little further afield you’ll find more than enough lochs and rivers to keep you fishing.

Wildlife

Red squirrels and a wide variety of birdlife may be attracted to the cottage garden, where roe deer may also be spotted at dawn and dusk. Birds of prey can be found throughout the National Park and red kite can be watched at the Argaty Red Kite Centre near Doune.

Skiing

Why not have a winter break and use the cottage as a base for skiing? Roads are quieter at this time of year making for quicker access to the nearer resorts, Glencoe (40 miles), Nevis Range (68 miles) and Glenshee (76 miles).
