Beautiful cottage and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week in this beautiful cottage. Although you have to pass by the garden of the owners to get to the cottage, we have always felt as being alone there. The garden is just amazingly maintained and it is a paradise for dogs. All rooms are very spacious and the veranda is a very light addition to the house. Surroundings are more than quiet. The cottage is about 1h30 from Edinbugh,30 min from Stirling and only 5 min from Trossachs National Park. A wonderful experience!!! We recommend spending holidays there.

A lovely self contained private cottage.

The cottage although in the owners back garden. Has its own gate and private garden. The cottage itself has two lovely sized bedrooms,living room,kitchen and a nice sized conservatory. We didn't once think "I wish there was a...." all kitchen accessories are catered for. Locally based outside the village of killearn.A good position to explore southern Scotland.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Cameron Cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and so comfortable that we wished we were staying for longer! The owners were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage is right on The West Highland Way so there are plenty of walks from the door. Having a fully enclosed garden was fantastic for our dog, often owners say their gardens are enclosed but when you look closely they are not......this garden definately is and the owners have obviously spent a lot of time, care and money making it so. In fact the whole cottage has been done up so well that it really is a home from home. Overall a fantastic cottage in a great setting and I thoroughly recommend it.
