Holiday Rental House
New for this season and available as from beginning of August 2018. We have a holiday cottage right next door (Lomond View Cottage) and Benview will be furnished and as well appointed as it is. Benview is a comfortable self catering semi-detached cottage situated in an idyllic and peaceful location in the heart of The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park on the outskirts of Aberfoyle. The cottage overlooks Ben Lomond to the north and open fields and forestry to the south. Benview cottage is situated off a quiet forest road and with a secure garden, is ideal for children and pets. We are a dog friendly cottage and dogs stay for free. Although our pictures show the cottage empty it will be well appointed with all the mod cons and comfortably sleeps 4 people.

We are a dog friendly cottage and dogs stay for free. Although our pictures show the cottage empty it will be well appointed with all the mod cons and comfortably sleeps 4 people. Off road parking is directly adjacent to the cottage. All electricity, gas, towels and linen are included in the weekly charge. (No hidden charges!) The holiday cottage is in The Trossachs, a perfect location for walking and cycling with 500 kilometres of tracks and paths, quite literally, on your doorstep. There is something for everybody and your four legged friends from gentle strolls in the woods to serious hill climbing and munro bagging and for cyclists, safe easy family friendly routes to extreme single track for the more serious mountain biker. Carron Valley mountain bike centre is also a short drive away. We have a wide selection of maps, information on walks, cycle routes etc for you to read through to help plan your excursions for your holiday. Fishing, horse-riding, golfing, hill walking, Go-ape, Lake of Menteith Fisheries and water sports are all available nearby. There is so much to do in the surrounding area you may wonder how you are going to fit it all in. You may have to return! Alternatively, take some time to simply relax in our secluded south facing garden and look out for our visiting wildlife. More
