“Very pleased.”
Reviewed 29 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Stayed here for 3 nights this time but have stayed previously on two separate occasions. Really like the property and location. In terms of the location, I love having a view of the Ben,including when relaxing in the living room, and it's especially impressive around sunset. It also has a perfect combination of feeling you are away from the busyness of town and the high street but also being a short and convenient walk away from the high street and a Tesco express. Handy when out of wine or needing a few extras for breakfast. In terms of the cottage itself,it is very clean, very cosy, spacious, and welcoming and it's clear thought has gone into the layout, decoration, and little details. My favourite room is the bathroom with the deep bath tub and heated floor but also liked that the kitchen was fully equipped and had everything we needed. Jo and George are great hosts who take pride in the lovely cottage and certainly have something to be proud of. Thanks again, can certainly recommend, and we will be coming back.

“Wonderful place to relax”
Reviewed 29 December 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is a beautiful cottage, in quite location. Very clean and provides everything you many need. Plenty of space in side with a light and airy feel. Finished to a very high quality, we had a fantastic time here and have booked again. Recommended it to our son who also stayed a few weeks after us. Would highly recommend. Joanne and husband are very friendly and helpful, animals are fun to watch and walks into town are easy. Great overall location and in easy reach of so many places. You need to stay here, you won't be dissapointed.

“Outstanding Cottage & Location.”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at Bousd Holiday Cottage and we must say it is an immaculate, fully equipped cottage with fantastic views of Ben Ledi and the surrounding countryside. This was our third year staying at this Cottage and we will return for sure in 2018. The ultra-friendly owners. George and Joanne, really have gone that extra mile to make sure their guests have a wonderful stay. Although Bousd Cottage is a true home from home, a fantastic place to relax, it is also a perfect base for day trips and tours of the Trossachs, and Glasgow & Edinburgh are under an hour away by car.

“Superb cottage.”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Staying at Bousd Holiday Cottage this week and what a wonderful base this cottage is. Immaculately clean, very well equipped and everything provided that you could need, plus a few little extras to welcome visitors. A real gem. Good location, quiet but only just outside the town and handy for visiting the area. Joanne and George have done a brilliant job. Absolutely first class.

“Perfect holiday accommodation for access to the Trossachs!”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I have just spent five days here. It was perfect! A nice quiet location, comfortable and clean accommodation, and superb hosts. Callander itself is a lovely town too. This cottage makes the perfect base for a holiday in the Trossachs. Loads of things to see and do. We really hope we can come back again another year and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We've just recommended it to our neighbours too

“Feels like going home. ”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was our 2nd holiday at Bousd.
We find that Joanne and George have made the cottage a home from home and are very welcoming. The cottage is warm and has a few supplies on our arrival, always handy after a long journey. Especially the wine and ale. They have made some additions to the cottage a dishwasher and extra kitchen units and a larger bed all positives.
We managed to travel around the west of Scotland and find the lovely weather. The cottage is such a great distance to walk into town which has many places to eat and drink and shop. Returning in the summer with the children.
