    “The school house was a lovely quiet retreat, we made good use of the hot tub with beautiful views.”

    Nice local walks, and ideally placed for roving further afield.

The property

Resting in the village of Strathyre, just a few miles from the charming town of Callander within the Scottish countryside, you will find the charismatic bungalow, School House.

Renovated to a high standard this delightful dwelling offers both stylish and contemporary features combined with a bright and airy decor, most suitable for families or a group of friends.

Be welcomed into the friendly ambiance of the sitting room with magnificent views across the surrounding hillside, as well as boasting traditional Chesterfield sofas and a woodburning stove for that added warmth during the winter months.

Gather for an evening meal at the spacious dining table as you plan the days ahead and toast to a wonderful holiday break.

The farmhouse style kitchen has lovely colourful units and wooden worktops, housing all the necessary appliances for some home-cooking.

Choose from a super king-size, double and twin bedroom on the first floor, all furnished to a high-standard for storing your belongings and overlooking the countryside; the perfect view to wake up to each morning.

To the rear of the cottage is a lawned garden and patio area, complete with a selection of furniture so you can dine alfresco during the summer months.

Or choose to enjoy a cool dip in the hot tub and let those bubbling jets work their magic on your tired and aching muscles.

Situated a few miles from the popular tourist town of Callander, you are within a short drive of a number of attractions that are well-worth visiting during your trip, including Blair Drummond Safari & Adventure Park.

The property is set on the edge of a national cycle route, perfect for those keen cyclists looking to explore the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and its picturesque views.

Located near the river Balvaig as well as the local Loch Lubnaig, School House is the ideal choice to use as a base for some water sporting activities, particularly swimming, canoeing, kayaking and fishing, not to mention dog walking and cycling in the beautiful countryside.

Just over an hour's drive away is the charming city of Stirling which comes packed with things to do you'll struggle to fit everything into one trip!

Stirling Castle dates back to the middle ages, or venture towards The Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum for a spot of culture and local heritage.

School House is the ultimate choice for a family break to the heart of Scotland.

About the location

STRATHYRE

Callander 7 miles.

The small village of Strathyre, Gaelic for 'broad winding valley', lies at the head of Loch Lubnaig, sheltered by Ben Ledi, Ben Vane and Ben Shian, just seven miles from the historic town of Callander. Strathyre has long been popular with visitors, starting as a resting place for cattle drovers and today offering a café, a local village shop, Post Office and a pub serving food. Beautiful, lush green forests cover the hills on each side of the valley, attracting walkers, cyclists and fell runners annually, with the Strathyre Stuc a Chroin 5000 hill race (a gruelling 5000 ft ascent) competing every May. A short drive will take you to Callander, with its 18-hole golf course rated to be among the top ten courses in Scotland, whilst a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants and the McLaren Leisure Centre are also available. Every July, Callander hosts the World Highland Games, and the town’s Rob Roy Tourist Information Centre and riverside walks through The Meadows are not to be missed! A lovely location for all the family!

Note: There are currently no photographs of the kitchen, as this is undergoing refurbishment and will be ready by the end of March 2020.
