“The house was badly in need of work and did not reflect the photographs on Sykes website.”
We found a long hair in the shower, some of the mugs and an oven tray were filthy, the kettle leaked and the oven door wouldn't shut properly. There were two dvd players, one not connected and the other not working. There was also some noise from the road as the windows need replacing and we didn't realise it was so close to the road.

“A very comfortable and well appointed cottage.”
A good base for exploring the surrounding area.- Mrs Graham, July 2020
“The house was basic but well serviced and the booking very efficient.”
The view was disappointing but the convenience 200 m from shops was appreciated It’s position geographically was perfect for us for our 1 week stay: Trossachs, Loch Lomond, Glen Turret, Edinburgh, Glasgow- Mr Rankin, December 2019
“I have stayed in this property 4 times now, It is an ideal base for seeing the local area, once you are here there are enough walks from the house you don't really need to get back in your car.”- Mr Boulton, November 2019
“The cottage was perfectly situated just close enough to the shops for walking to them to buy fresh food every day.”
It was also close enough to the 3 Lochs Drive and Dukes Pass to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We wouldn't hesitate to book Braeside again.- Mrs Boggis, July 2019
“Lovely house with a very nice few off to the distance - can see horses and trees, hills etc.”
Very Quiet and very central to Aberfoyle village which was delightful and full of very friendly, helpful local people. The house had everything we needed and we were comfortable there. We did put the heating on some times and were impressed with the storage heaters which worked well. Fridge slightly over enthusiastic but apart from a frozen cucumber the first night we learned to keep things on the upper shelf. All in all would be most happy to go back there.- Miss Pellett, June 2019
“Good location for exploring The Trossachs and castles and abbeys etc.”
Aberfoyle is small but has shops and pubs/restaurants and post office- Mr Wraige, June 2019
“Was not made aware that access to the patio area was diffucult, too many stairs both up and down.”
No easy way of seeing the sights,transportation non existent.we only stayed 4 out of 9 days.would not have stayed there if i was made aware of these issues. My husband had a stroke so walking anywhere is a little difficult. Loney! The woman in #6 was very hostile.when i smiled at her she scowled.awful experience.- Ms Glozier, May 2019

“The view from the kitchen window looked directly onto the back of the co-op supermarket ( not very attractive) Also from the kitchen window to the left hand side was also unattrarive as it was the back of a restartarunt - part of the building was empty with birds nesting in the attic and the back yard and at the side of the building was full of rubish.”- Mr Finn, April 2019
“Aberfoyle is a great place to get round some of Scotland’s beautiful Country side, Breaside is a lovely house, with everything you want except WiFi , that’s a shame as you can explore things through the internet.”- Mr Parkinson, September 2018
“We had an enjoyable week at Braeside whilst we explored the beautiful Trossachs area.”
There is a residence below the cottage which would have been useful to know beforehand as with three young children and creaky floorboards it was difficult to know if/ how much we were disturbing those below us. A dedicated Wi-Fi would be a plus point.- Mrs Wheatcroft, August 2018
Friendly locals, great local facilities. Lots of good walks of varying difficulty. Great scenery. House is very comfortable and good location. would have liked to have stayed longer.- Mrs Clarke, July 2018
“Friendly neighbours, good property, good location”- Mrs Bradley, July 2017

Kitchen was big enough. Kids loved the place. We played a lot as there was enough room inside the house.- Mr Micuta, December 2015
“The best equipped kitchen I've ever had for non eating out family - it was easy to use and had an efficient cooker.”
Also a very good selection of maps of the area, bird & flower identification books and dictionary for games disputes! Loved the selection of varied art work on walls- a very homely comfy, warm cottage.- Mr Gowler, September 2014
“Cottage was very comfortable and well-placed.”- Mr Corps, May 2014
“We loved the cottage!”
And was more spacious than we expected and the furniture and beds were comfortable. And it was convenient to the store, pub and for walking.

Within The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park there are a huge variety of attractions; enjoy a gentle stroll through the Balloch Castle Country Park or the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, or, for the more adventurous, the mountains offer challenging walks and climbs.
