The detail

This lovely stone cottage has been rebuilt to provide luxury accommodation in the beautiful Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. With two large double bedrooms it's ideal for couples or a group of friends looking for a relaxed retreat surrounded by hills, forest, wildlife and stunning views of Glen Dochart. There's also room for one or two small children on the Z-bed in one of the bedrooms. Alternatively a couple of older children can sleep on the futon in the bothy in the garden.

Old and new blend perfectly in this striking cottage with a wealth of bespoke features that tell the story of its fascinating railway history. You'll find new high quality furnishings alongside interesting period pieces and all rooms have fantastic views of the glen and surrounding forest.

On arrival you'll note a double-height entrance hallway and staircase that allows light to flood the space and open it up. A contemporary larch-clad extension offers architectural contrast and the place has a cosy but high-end feel to it. The ground floor is entirely open plan and has a gorgeous hand-built kitchen with a large island and breakfast bar that is the heart of the cottage and a perfect spot for that first coffee of the day as you make your plans. The distressed painted furniture and reclaimed wood worktops provide a cosy farmhouse vibe. It comes fully equipped and is a great place to enjoy some drinks whilst sharing the cooking tasks.

The living area has a large open fire, rebuilt using stones from the derelict outbuilding, and there are two sumptuous sofas where you can snuggle up and enjoy the glorious views through the double sliding doors that step down on to a large decking. A Victorian armchair provides an ideal spot for reading or snoozing, and in the evenings you can take advantage of the Smart TV, DVD/Blu-Ray player (with a library of films) and bluetooth radio/CD player with the logs crackling in the background.

Both bedrooms are on the first floor and boast original Victorian brass bed frames with modern comfy mattresses. And again, bringing that lovely mix of old and new, you'll find the rooms furnished with rugs and antiques whilst also providing underfloor heating to keep your feet warm on a chilly morning.

There's a bathroom upstairs with a walk-in shower and clawfoot double-ended cast iron bath for long lazy soaks. As with the rest of the place it's the wonderful little details like antique brass tap-ware and white builder block tiles that add charm and style. And with four windows you can even gaze at the views whilst brushing your teeth! There's also a wet room downstairs which has a powerful shower so no need for queuing in the morning.

The bothy is a separate outbuilding in the corner of the garden and is intended as a teenager’s hideaway but is available to those of any age! There's a small living area with a stove heater, TV, DVD and radio, basic kitchen facilities and separate WC with wash basin. The mezzanine sleeping area is accessed by ladder and includes a futon mattress and lots of cosy cushions (guests should bring their own sleeping bags or duvet).

There's plenty to do in the area including walking, biking, hiking, climbing, fishing, boating, distilleries and castles to visit. If you fancy dining out there are some lovely cafes, hotel restaurants and pubs in Killin and plenty of other fine eateries within a few miles of the cottage. The owners will leave details and directions to some of their favourites at the cottage when you arrive.
