Many thanks for your kind comments ! You rightly point out some of the advantages of Glenvarloch being within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and of course the ease of access to a primary road provides great scope to reach the highlands & islands normally out of normal range - or even go skiing at Glencoe!It's a quiet spot set back from the road with the gurgling burn for company. We'd be glad to have you back !

So glad that you appreciated some of the advantages of Glenvarloch ! The prevalence of Android and Tablet gadgets and the upgrade to the local mobile network means, thankfully, wi-fi is not necessary.
It is always worth checking the map before booking. Glenvarloch is in the glorious Scottish Highlands where the roads are not straight and Top Gear fans may recognise some of the routes - fab ! If you prefer City living . . . . then Glenvarloch is not for you ! Best Wishes G&J

“Great location to explore the Trossacks”
Reviewed 8 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This house is extremely well appointed. A home from home with excellent facilities. Bubbly bath and showers are very good. Kitchen spacious and functional. Communal areas very well lit, comfortable and spacious. Very spacious for the uninitiated. We cycled along the shores of loch Lubnaig to Ben Ledi and climbed up to the peak in sunshine. We cycled north to Killin along the viaduct. We swam in loch viol and fly fished for brown trout in the river balvaig and the lochs lubnaig and doine, rode horses at Castle Renock. Our guest travelled toEdinburgh and Glasgow for excursions and fished for salmon and seatrout at Calander. What a brilliant place to enjoy the the Trossacks. Would return for more fishing walking and cycling and recommend this house with no reservations....

“The best holiday home rental we have ever had!”
Reviewed 2 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The photographs of this house make it look fantastic, but don't do it justice. It is a beautiful house with ample space for a sociable holiday, and the owners have thought of everything. Ample bedding, towels, and a fully equipped kitchen for enjoyable cooking and eating with family and friends. For those who cannot manage the stairs to the living area and upstairs bedroom, downstairs offers everything needed on one level, with a double and twin bedroom, lovely shower room and loo, and enormous kitchen and open area. Comfortable, welcoming and luxurious, well located but felt very private and secluded. A real escape! We travelled with extended family age 8 upwards, and a dog, and the outside space was excellent. Ideally located for walking, cycling, and for days out, sightseeing, trips, shopping and sampling the delicious local eateries. Information in the house provides inspiration and ideas, and after a two week stay we had not even scratched the surface of what the area had to offer, even in a reasonably poor summer!
