This lovingly restored stone cottage offers indulgent holiday accommodation for families, couples or groups of friends celebrating a special occasion. Relax with your loved ones in the heart of the Scottish countryside for a getaway to remember.

Let the highlands of Loch Lomond be your playground at this peaceful spot on the edge of The Trossachs National Park. This gorgeous stone property is the perfect location to get away from it all, thanks to its thoughtfully designed interior, roominess and huge garden. Head out walking or spend a day visiting the 19th-century Buchanan Castle in Drymen (5 miles), or head to Glasgow (20 miles) for a day out in the city before returning to this cosy, stylish property for a satisfying night's sleep.

The property has been beautifully renovated into a welcoming light-filled space with a modern feel. On the ground floor, cook up delicious feasts using local ingredients in the well-equipped kitchen. It has a beautiful wooden floor and a dining room with French doors leading out into the garden. Meals can be shared in the dining room, which has an exposed stone wall and French doors leading to a decked area outside. The sitting room is a cosy spot to relax in the evenings, either with a novel or your favourite box set – if it's a bit chilly, throw a couple of logs on the wood burner and enjoy their warm glow as you snuggle under a blanket. The lower floor also has a cosy twin bedroom, a double room with a four-poster bed and the main bathroom, where you can take a soak in a roll-top bath. Head upstairs to the master double, a stunning room with a vaulted ceiling, complete with an en-suite bathroom with shower and WC. This area has a Juliet balcony looking over the living space, creating a spacious and inclusive atmosphere.

The garden has a large lawn for the dog to doze contentedly on and several eating areas. Relax on the terrace on sunny afternoons, sizzling up a BBQ to feast on together. You can park up to two cars in the driveway.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We enjoyed our stay at The Steading. It is a comfortable, well equipped cottage with plenty of room. The space outside is lovely in the sun, and the country setting is very relaxing. The cottage is located beautifully to get round the Loch Lomond and Trossachs, but close enough if you want a day in Glasgow.

We had a very comfortable stay with 2 dogs - the place was lovely, and had everything we needed and more. The kitchen was well stocked, and there were board games and movies to entertain. We appreciated the eggs, milk and other provisions that were provided as well as the hot high pressured shower. Great location as well which allowed us to exploreRead more the Loch Lomond & Trossachs area with grocery shops close by. It was just the break we needed! Hide

Beautiful cottage in a delightful setting. Ideal for accessing the local area, Trossachs and Loch Lomond. Very comfortable with plenty of room, we were a party of 6 adults and a dog. We had a most enjoyable week away.

Absolutely lovely - a warm welcome from the owner, spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We have stayed in countless self-catering cottages, and this one ranks as one of the best - excellent value for money and highly recommended.
