Kestrel Cottage is situated 1km up a quiet lane overlooking the beautiful Lake of Menteith. The cottage was well-equipped, comfortable and very peaceful. The discrete owners live nearby and were helpful and friendly. The location is excellent for exploring the Trossachs and Loch Lomond. Highly recommended.
