Overview

About the property

Farmhouse in Gartmore, Stirlingshire, Central Scotland - Peaceful Rural Location

The Byre at Back Borland holiday cottages. Situated in the fantastic location of the Trossachs National Park, these beautifully renovated 18th-century barn conversions, accessed via a rough track, lie in a peaceful location offering breathtaking views over Ben Lomond and the Menteith Hills. Gartmore is the perfect setting for those who love outdoor pursuits, with hundreds of kilometres of forest track easily accessible. Back Borland has two large fields, both with a stream running through them, in which guests are welcome to take children and/or dogs. The ‘endless’ swimming-pool provides optimal swimming conditions for a single swimmer and the current can be adjusted to a preferred level of difficulty. Even without the current, it still makes a lovely sized pool in which children can swim and have fun.

Please note that Back Borland is accessible by a farm track that may not be suitable for some vehicles with particularly low ground clearance e.g. sports cars etc..

Fantastic Byre, beautiful location and excellent facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for four nights in mid October, two sets of parents, four girls and one cocker spaniel, had a great time. Condition, decor, facilities are excellent. Kids especially loved the swimming pool and hot tub. Great central location for sightseeing, walks, hill climbing, and lots lots more.

OUTSTANDING PROPERTY,A HIDDEN GEM !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week-end to celebrate my wife`s birthday, everyone from 6 to 60 had a ball and the hosts Dave and Rosie made us very welcome, nothing was too much trouble from our arrival to departure, and we will definitely return.

Perfect peace

  • 4 of 5

The silence at night was pure heaven, haven't slept so peacefully in years, the Byre was ideal for six adults with all having their own space.

The thing that loses the full five stars is the road in,4x4 advisable. Loved the log burner and hot tub regardless of weather, scenery up the glen ,well you really have to see it.

Hosts always to hand and helpful , perfect.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the really positive review, John. We're well aware of the issues with the track, which is why we always take care to mention it clearly in all our advertising. We're glad you enjoyed the upside of being up a track, though, which is the remarkable peace and quiet, and lack of light polution. Our idea of heaven too!

Great central location for seeing beautiful Scotland.

  • 5 of 5

Our family (7 adults) used the cottage for 8 days as our base camp. We could travel all day then drive down the 1 mile dirt road to rest and relaxation, stars and quiet. It was exactly what we had hoped. Everyone had their own space but then we could come together in the main area and chill, visit or play games. We couldn't have asked for more. Rosie felt more like a host than a manager of the property. We didn't see much of her because of our journeys, but with every request through email, our desires were waiting for us when we returned at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this cottage for you and yours.
