  • "Had the most wonderful holiday with my children and grandchildren."

    Having walks from the front door was amazing. The accommodation had everything we needed, we loved it so much we hope to stay again next year.

  • "Tyndrum is an excellent place as a base to explore the area."

    Many places well inside a 50 ml radius. Note that 50 miles takes 90 minutes. If you wish you could use the train to get there. If you want to walk the cottage sits on the West Highkand Way. Enjoy the 'Green Welly Stop' - some very good products for walkers, reasonably priced fuel and food. Despite being 100m from the main road the cottage is a great place to relax, quiet, comfortable and if you like it a great log fire is available.

  • "Helpful communication thanks."

    Ideal for walking on West Highland Way 1 way day walks as well as other local walks. Handy to be near train stations. Well stocked kitchen for cooking but it would be helpful to have more kitchen supplies such as dishwasher tablets. Nice to have wood fire burner. One of our family found the bed a bit short.

    It is on the Highland Way, didn't bother us, you don't hear people going past really you just happen to see them if your at the kitchen sink.

  • "A lovely little place for a few days away!"

    The cottage was the perfect place to spend time with a few friends, thanks to the well-equipped kitchen and cosy living room. Loads of lovely walks nearby, whether you want something easygoing or more intense! We had a lovely time, thank you!

  • "This is a little treasure set in beautiful landscape."

    There is so much to do and see in every direction and 'literally' right on your doorstep. It is a cosy cottage with quite a small kitchen and dining area, but that - well, makes it cosier. And the sun just seems to come around and light up the kitchen and garden from dawn to dusk, with an amazing backdrop. Love this place and will be visiting again.

  • "Beautiful setting with walking trails off the doorstep as well as convenient stores just a short walk away."

    For food shopping Oban is about a 50 min drive away through gorgeous scenery with pull in stops along the route to enjoy at a more leisurely pace if wanted. I would highly reccomend the Three loch drive which is easy to find on google maps, take your camera and a picnic to enjoy a day out but be warned that there is no bins, it has a bag it and take it policy, so if like us you have four legged members of your family you may want to triple bag their business! The cottage it's is very comfortable and has all you will need to make your stay comfortable. Given the government reccomendations for covid19 Fraser and Karen provided antibacterial hand gel, wash and cleaning wipes, as well as the place being thoroughly cleaned before our arrival, we were made to feel very welcome and told to ring them if we had any worries or questions!

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Auld Tyndrum Cottage, which couldn't be much better placed for walking the West Highland Way."

    The well-supplied wood burner soon warmed the place up when we got in and the four of us had plenty of room to lounge on the sofas in the living room. The dining area was less spacious and required careful planning before we settled down to eat. One member of our party had an uncomfortable mattress and solved the issue by sleeping on the duvet from the other, equally uncomfortable, bed in her room. This matter had been mentioned by previous guests and had apparently been corrected by the owner. We'd be happy to stay there, though, if we were visiting the area again.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tyndrum cottage."

    We loved the extension that has been built on too. Including the old wood burning fire....impossible to get cold with that burning away.... The holiday in general was a very peaceful and relaxing one. The only down side we encountered was the limited public transport - a car is definitely recommended. Thank you so much for a lovely stay in such a beautiful location. We would definitely stay again. We were sad to have to leave. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "The current owners need to take a close look at the condition of the following."

    Pots and pans some in very poor condition Coffee cafeteria falls apart when used and too small even for two people Cleanliness of toaster No bread knife Double bed downstairs New mattress required or even larger new bed and mattress Worktop in the kitchen is not sealed to the wall correctly ,hygiene? Floor under the table in the kitchen was filthy has not been cleaned properly in a long time ,my wife cleaned it TV is far too small Fireplace needs repair and a good clean ,when was the chimney last swept ? Make people aware that the house is actually on a major highland walkway so you have an almost continuous line of people walking close to the property ,this drove my dogs mad. The property was generally OK apart from the above points,it is in an excellent location but lacks a little TLC I write this as a constructive critique and not with any malice as we enjoyed our stay, even though we cut our trip short by a couple of days as my wife was not very well.

  • "Auld Tyndrum cottage was the perfect place to be for doing sightseeing, hiking or just relaxing."

    Don't be put of when you first arrive as we thought the cottage was very cold. But once you light the fire the whole place is so cosy and warm. We only had to light the fire on arrival which was all set up. No more fires had to be lit as cottage stayed warm. Very well equipped with everything. Would certainly go back and recommend to anyone wanting an adventure packed holiday and restful place to rest the weary body at night. Frazer Auld could not be more helpful. Thank you.

    We have used Sykes several times. Your listings and info are fine but customer service isn’t always the best. We’ve found Sykes to be lacking in taking any responsibility in the past, hence the 5 rating. During recent bad weather there was some appalling feedback

  • "The cottage was in an ideal location."

    2 streams bordered part of the garden and the burbling sound of the water was very soothing. The views were spectacular especially as the mountains were snow covered and sparkled in the sunlight. The rooms were tastefully furnished and the bedrooms comfortable. the kitchen was well kitted out and spacious. It was a treat to sit near the wood burning stove in the cold evenings I can thoroughly recommend this location for anyone who either likes to go hill walking or just relaxing. The owner is friendly and fulfilled the requests we asked him.

About the location

TYNDRUM

Crianlarich 5 miles; Inverary 27 miles; Callander 35 miles; Oban 36 miles.

Sitting within the stunning Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and with the Gaelic name Tigh an Druim, meaning ‘the house on the ridge’, Tyndrum began life on the drovers’ routes bringing cattle from the Highlands to markets in central Scotland. Its importance for travel in the Highlands is still apparent today with two railway stations and a petrol station feeding the popular road, which divides just north of the village to go to either Oban or further north over Rannoch Moor. Tyndrum boasts a Tourist Information Centre, a couple of restaurants, a pub and the famous Green Welly Stop, which contains a shop and restaurant and is always popular with visitors. For walkers, the West Highland Way passes through the village and continues north to the majestic Rannoch Moor and spectacular Glencoe. Visit Ben Cruachan and the power station situated inside the mountain, or take a trip to Inverary on Loch Fyne and sample some delicious seafood. You can even try your luck hunting for gold as there is a history of gold mining in the area. Tyndrum is an ideal base for your Highlands holiday.
