About Richard Willis

We discovered how beautiful the Loch Lomond and Trossachs area was when our children were small and have been returning ever since. We are fortunate to have been able to rent out our holiday cottages, lodges and apartments for over 10 years.

Richard Willis purchased this house in 2005

Why Richard Willis chose Stronachlachar

We are based in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs Park at Stronachlachar on the edge of Loch Katrine with some spectacular scenery around us.

We have some unique properties just 10/15 yards from the waters edge of Loch Katrine and offer a superb location for large or small family gatherings via a range of property sizes.

8 bedroom Lochside Lodge

5 bedroom Lochside House

4 bedroom Lochside Cottage

3 bedroom Lochside Apartment.

All properties have oak wood flooring and great loch views. Most have a log burning stoves for that homely feel and they all have gas central heating to actually keep you warm.

What makes this house unique

The Pier Cafe is only 100 metres away and offers high quality food and drinks.

The Inversnaid Bunkhouse, 4 miles away, is an excellent place to kick your feet up and have a beer after hiking. It is also a hostel used by walkers.

Aberfoyle, 11 miles away, is the nearest town that has a Co-op supermarket, Tourist Information, Restaurants etc.

Callander is a bigger town at 22 miles away.

We find the big supermarkets (Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's) deliver to our properties on a regular basis.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful house, Beautiful location

We stayed in the 4 bedroom cottage which was very nicely done. The lake is right there and very serene. The location is pretty remote, it's a long drive down a narrow road back to Aberfoyle but there is a nice restaurant and boat cruise within walking distance from the house. I appreciated that they had a portable crib (a.k.a. cot) available. Having a downstairs bedroom was nice for my elderly mother. Also, this is the only place I stayed in the UK with a decent mattress. Key pick up/ drop and payment were incredibly easy. My only complaints are it's difficult to adjust the temperature for the upstairs shower and it would be nice to have 2 bedrooms with a large double bed instead of just the one. I have used VRBO or competitors 7 times and this was one of my top 2 experiences.

Just beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

Did a road trip with family/friends to Scotland and not much was extraordinary until we reached Aberfoyle (the nearest town to the cottage).

The views were absolutely breathtaking and even better from the cottage with a lake view from the balcony. The house was airy and had almost everything you’ll need to cook and even bake so we spent most of the time in the kitchen and when we were not we were out side at the beautiful set of woods or out for a walk nearby! The cottage itself

Was very well kept and clean and felt homey.

Only minor issues were hot water supply can’t take two people having shower at the same time in the different bathrooms. And WiFi was absolutely slow but this was not much of a bother to us since we were trying to get away.

Owners very lovely and quick in responding to any queries we wished we had met them really. Definitely want to go back when it’s less cold :)
