Stunning!

Stunning location with superb scenery. Away from everything yet plenty amenities nearby. Asda home delivery was excellent!

Rhumhor is an extremely spacious, comfortable and cosy house. Owners make you very welcome. Plenty space to completely relax and chill out. Highly recommend!

Location

From the Owner

Loch Goil is stunning, a hidden jewel in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, it has simply breathtaking scenery. When you stand outside Rhumhor all you hear are birds singing and waves lapping on the shore. The view is completely unspoilt, just the loch and mountains. You feel a world away from busy roads and hectic lifestyles and yet you are only just over an hour away from the city of Glasgow. The house has uninterrupted views of the mountains and loch but you can hop in the car and be in the village in minutes. We cannot imagine a better place to recharge your batteries, spend precious time with loved ones and appreciate all the beauty that Scotland offers.

Facilities

From the Owner

This location offers complete peace and relaxation whilst being in easy reach of great facilities for all family ages. We have restaurants, a pub, a leisure centre with indoor pool, outdoor activity centre, boat and bike hire, fishing tackle hire, canoe wildlife trips and numerous walks, all within our very own glen. This is a Victorian villa that was enhanced in the 1920's by the Glasgow architect Magnus A Duncan. He added the fairytale turrets, the spectacular half landing offering panoramic mountain views and the unique family room, once the tennis pavilion, which sets it apart as it offers plenty of space for everyone to gather. It is the real heart of the house and means it is the perfect house for a celebration, get together or a peaceful holiday among family and friends.
