We are a family of 5 who moved to the National Park 4 years ago. We love living here as we all take part in outdoor activities such as running, cycling, dog walking and hiking. We even enjoy open water loch swimming. We are on hand for a chat if you'd like to tell us about your Trossachs adventures at the end of a day, however we similarly respect those who wish the ultimate peace and tranquility. We look forward to welcoming you to Nether Glenny.

Wonderful winter break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Buzzard with our 2 year old daughter, our friends and their 3 and 5 year old children. It was a perfect way to spend a weekend with children. Highland cows right outside the door, a wood burning fire and beautiful views!! The owners were so helpful and we would definitely recommend Buzzard to anyone :). We hope to come back!

A dramatic cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This spacious cottage is a fabulous redo of an old stone building. Every detail was special from the lovely decorating to the very high end kitchen. The property is up a long single track drive and offers a panoramic view. The space is actually huge as there are two large bedrooms upstairs with lovely wood walls and ceilings. The roof slopes but there is adequate height and excellent operable skylights. Some details that make the property first rate include a heated stone floor on the first level. The building includes two other units but there is total separation and privacy. It's rare to find an accommodation that is part of the destination. The owners were there to greet us as planned. They live in an adjacent house and were friendly but left us our privacy. The internet was a little fussy but worked. We think this place was very fairly priced and deserves top ratings.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for this wonderful review. You've pointed out so many features of Nether Glenny and of Buzzard cottage in particular. I am sure that future guests will find your review very useful. In addition, Matthew and I were delighted with your presentation of the comments that you left in the guests book. I wondered if the style of writing is calligraphy. You also gave future guests some handy recommendations. Thank you for this. It was a pleasure to meet you both and Matthew and I are genuinely pleased that you enjoyed your stay here. It sounds like all in all you had a lovely holiday in Scotland. Very best wishes to you both. Alison and Matthew Woods.

Schöne Unterkunft, gute Lage, nette Vermieter, tolle Ausblicke

  • 4 of 5

Tolle Unterkunft für 2 Wochen, Größe für 4 Personen perfekt insbesondere wegen der 2 Bäder. Die Schlafzimmer sind geräumig. Auch bei schlechtem Wetter kann man es sich mit dem Kamin gemütlich machen. Der WLAN Empfang ist ordentlich. Die Vermieter wohnen nebenan und sind super nett. Manko ist vielleicht dass es hellhörig ist. Es gibt noch 2 weitere Einheiten im gleichen Gebäude. Das hört man manchmal, hat uns aber nicht weiter gestört. Der Ausblick auf den See ist ein Traum. Von buzzard aus hat man ihn allerdings nur eingeschränkt. Lage ist prima für Ausflüge in alle Richtungen. Auto ist dabei ein Muss. Die nötigsten dinge bekommt man in aberfoyle, für größere Einkäufe muss man etwas weiter fahren. Alles in allem eine schöne Unterkunft zum weiter empfehlen.
