The description in the title says it all really. We enjoyed a memorable and fun filled family holiday in Scotland and this gorgeous holiday home was the perfect base. The icing on the cake. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Glenvarloch to family and friends. We're already planning a return visit.

Stayed over the weekend of the Strathyre Music Festival - two families with young children. Great, comfortable and spacious house - very well-equipped. Luxurious but not pretentious. Fantastic location - straight across the road from the pub, and in fantastic walking and cycling countryside. Nothing negative to say!

About the neighbourhood

The property is within strolling distance of Loch Lubnaig and a short drive brings you to the Falls of Leny, Bracklinn Falls and Callander. The spectacular Falls of Dochart at Killin to the north also feed off the sometimes inclement weather - so any rain has a positive effect !
