The property

Tucked away in the beautiful village of Balquihidder, nestled amongst the majestic Scottish hills of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, and 1 hour 30 minutes from Edinburgh and Glasgow, sits the hidden gem of Inglis Nook Cottage.

Newly refurbished and set over one floor, this charming retreat welcomes families and couples looking for an escape to the countryside and to experience life in this beautiful part of Scotland.

Whether you’ve been cycling or paddle boarding, sightseeing, or exploring, unwind in the cosy lounge, furnished with a plush leather sofa, woodburning stove and Smart TV.

A well-designed kitchen with contemporary units offers everything you’ll need for a break away from home, including a washing machine, so you won’t have to worry about bringing your whole wardrobe.

Enjoy some rest in one of the two bedrooms, before waking up to a good coffee and a luxurious shower; choose from the elegant double room or a triple bunk with a double and a single, providing enough space for five guests.

The village of Balquidder is set at the northern tip of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is full of history, attracting those interested in the famous outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor, who came to see his final resting place there.

For those feeling active, there is plenty to choose from; Inglis Nook Cottage is the perfect base for walking, cycling, wild swimming, canoeing, paddle boarding, golf, and fishing.

If you fancy a night off cooking, treat the group to a dining experience at the Monachyle Mhor Hotel, which has pride of place in The Good Food Guide and attracts guests far and wide, or enjoy some excellent gastro style pub food at Mhor 84.

Hop in the car and head North to Glencoe and Fort William, for fantastic scenery and skiing in the winter, or take a wonderful day trip to Oban or Loch Lomond; whichever you decide, you will be blown away by this part of the world.

Set in a simply breath-taking highland location, a holiday at Inglis Nook Cottage is sure to be well remembered.

About the location

BALQUHIDDER, PERTHSHIRE, SCOTLAND

Callander 13 miles; Stirling 24 miles; Glasgow 54 miles; Edinburgh 68 miles

The Braes of Balquhidder is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Steeped in history and legend, the Celts believed it to be a ‘thin place’ where the boundary between the spiritual world and the earthly world is minimal. Rob Roy MacGregor, the infamous 17th century outlaw who lived in and around the area, is buried in the ruins of the first Balquhidder kirk which dates from 1631. Inside the present kirk, built in 1855, is the St. Angus gravestone, an early Christian missionary who bought Christianity to the area in the 7th century. Balquhidder is a place of songs, stories, ley lines and cup stones. As a test of strength, people throughout the ages have attempted to lift a stone (94kg) onto a neolithic plinth named the Pudraic stone. This ancient ritual continues today, and the site is only a stone’s throw from here if you want to have a go. Along one of the many walks is Creag anTuirc (Boars rock), the ancient rallying place of the Clan MacLaren where once beacons were lit. Kirkton Glen is a three-hour loop along the forest track up into the hills. If you would like to explore the area whether on land or on water, mountain bikes, e-bikes, canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards are available for hire from Roll Outdoors, at the entrance to the glen. A variety of eateries are nearby, including a 5-mile drive to The Broch Café in Strathyre, renowned for its Scottish breakfasts (closed January and February), or perhaphs visit Mhor 84 for a spot of lunch in the sun, or for something a little more special, head to the top of the geln for a fine dining experience to remember at Monachyle Mhor. Balquhidder is a magical, mystical setting in which to enjoy a relaxed holiday or use as a base to tour this beautiful area of Scotland.
