  • "Dog/child gate at end of decking would be very useful for safety reasons."

    Mop essential to dry wet floor when coming in from rain. No cleaning equipment available to clean with while you’re there or before you leave. A spare bin bag would be good too. Cupboards and shelves in kitchen so full of ‘stuff’ that there is no room left for your own groceries etc. Otherwise, very comfortable and an enjoyable holiday experience in a beautiful spot of Scotland.

    Thanks Lynne for your feedback. I'm sorry that you didn't find the cleaning equipment that is stored under the sink (with spare bin bags normally!). The mop was removed on purpose as when put away damp into a cupboard, it unfortunately starts to smell. I personally scrub the floor with a wet cloth. I have cleared a cupboard for food, thank you, that was an oversight! However, the "stuff" to which you refer, I would prefer to be thought of as a comprehensively and tastefully stocked kitchen, a home from home for those people who enjoy cooking and dining well whilst on holiday. The gate is all made up and painted, ready for next season...I'm just waiting for the joiner to find time to fit it now! I'm very glad that you enjoyed St Fillans and hope to welcome you back sometime. Property Owner

  • "We loved Rowan Lodge."

    The views are stunning and the lodge is beautiful. It had everything we needed and was very cosy. Heating works very quickly and we only needed it on for an hour or 2 each day. Most of our week was bright and sunny but pretty cold. Lots of lovely walks from the door. We saw lots of deer on our morning walk every day. Storm Babet was arriving on the day we were leaving so we left a day early to make sure we got home safely. Iona was on call if we needed anything. Would highly recommend this stunning part of Scotland. Loved the welcome pack. Thank you so much!

    Thank you Tracy, I'm so glad you enjoyed your holiday at Rowan lodge! Property Owner

  • "Overall, a lovely Chalet."

    Lovely views of the hills oppopsite. Its a pity that the location was/is still being excavated etc. Noisy at times. Took the owner a while to get the TV working for us but was fine after that. Everthing you could imagine you would need was available within the Chalet including offroad parking. If anything, too many cushions.

    Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry if the expansion work was intrusive. I'm hopeful that by early next year it was all be finished. Oh dear for the cushions! My husband might agree with you... personally I feel it's just right, but it's all a matter of taste. If you ever come back and stay at Rowan I'll happily dispense with a few of them in time for your visit. I'm glad that you otherwise enjoyed your holiday. Kindest regards Property Owner

    We enjoyed exploring the area and around Loch Lomond. Loch Earn at sunset was beautiful. Spotlessly clean. Well equipped. Thank you very much.

  • "Lodge stunning, attention to detail amazing, wonderful views."

    Lovely welcum pack for us and our little dog. A little stool at dressing table would be helpful to sit and dry hair n things, a small detail for comfort thou not a problem. Iona is so helpful and promptly dealt with our noise complaint of building works and a small plumbing issue. She cannot be faulted as a careing owner and followed up by checking we were happy and comfortable. Location was described as idylic and relaxing, on Sykes Cottages website. So we choose here to unwind and were surprised to find building work going on to finish the site. we feel sykes cottages should have made us aware of the fact and let it be up to us if we choose to go during this time. We would gladly go back when work has finished as it will be the perfect retreat then to relax and unwind.

    Thank you Carol for your feedback and understanding. I've taken on board the suggestion about the stool, and one can now sit down to dry one's hair! Kindest regards Property Owner

  • "We had a fab stay."

    The only little thing but not important would be comfy outdoor seating so you can relax and enjoy the amazing views.

    Thank you Lisa for your feedback, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay! It's a good point about the outdoor comfy chairs, thank you, and one that I'm looking into. The difficulty we face is storage, so cushioned recliners are out... as is anything lightweight that might blow away. Watch this space.. Iona Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the picturesque Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park in the charming village of St Fillans is Rowan.

This fabulous, dog-friendly lodge benefits from a welcoming, open-plan interior with electric flame-effect stove, off-road parking space and excellent location in the breath-taking and fun-filled Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park; the perfect setting for families, friends or couples looking to explore the wonders of Perthshire.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home where you can unwind in front of the Smart TV by the gentle warmth of the electric flame-effect stove while the designated chef of the group rustles up a hearty meal in the fully equipped kitchen.

Dine together at the dining table or indulge in an alfresco affair upon the decking; the perfect place to raise a toast to your well-earned break!

When stars appear overhead, travel back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the bathroom before sloping off to sleep in one of two bedrooms; choose between a double with a handy en-suite or twin.

First thing in the morning, if you can pull yourself away, head to Loch Earn, which is literally right outside your door, and try your hand at paddleboarding, kayaking, water-skiing, and wakeboarding.

St Fillans Golf Club is a popular 9-hole course that also features a bar and restaurant.

You can spend your time hiking in the nearby mountains of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and then refuel with hearty meals at one of the area's hotels.

Achray House Ben Vorlich, a fantastic vantage point to take in magnificent views, is just a short walk away from the railway and the Four Seasons hotel, making it easily accessible to hikers.

The café in the local convenience store serves up delicious beverages and baked goods.

Travel to Perth, if you'd rather spend your time in a thriving city, where you can visit attractions like the Black Watch Castle and Museum, Perth Museum & Art Gallery, and Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park, as well as a wide variety of retail establishments, eateries, and watering holes where you can buy groceries, relax with a drink, and get some work done.

Be sure to stop at the childhood home of Mary, Queen of Scots, Stirling Castle, one of Scotland's largest and most important castles.

Experience all this and more at Rowan!
