  • “Nice touch to leave some eggs and honey when we arrived.”

    Everything was in good order and clean on arrival.

    Everything was in good order and clean on arrival. The house has everything you need, quite spacious, decent value for money and we really enjoyed our stay. Some great walks and anyone into fishing or water sports has the loch almost on their doorstep. The fridge has a missing salad compartment which made putting some things in a bit awkward. Location is attractive as well as private. The drive up from the road is quite steep and I’d be nervous if my car had a lowered suspension!

The property

Balmeanach is a quaint cottage set on the hillside, on the quiet shore of the Village.

The property provides a great base for a family or group of friends to explore Scotland’s southern Highlands.

After a long hike in the hills, return to the cosy Balmeanach.

Take off any coats and boots in the porch and head into the living room.

Recline on the sofa, putting your feet up by the woodburner while discussing the day’s events.

Once you feel thoroughly revived, move into the kitchen/diner and cook up a delicious home-cooked meal to enjoy at the kitchen table, or in better weather, at the chairs and table outside on the patio.

Downstairs you will find a double bedroom, with a twin and a single bedroom upstairs, all offering a great place to rest your head.

There is a family bathroom on the ground floor as well as a WC by the porch.

Step out into the garden and you can enjoy the fantastic views of fields and hills, as well as the peace and quiet.

The property is a short distance from the village of Lochearnhead, located as the name suggests, at the head of Loch Earn.

The village is a popular location for water sports such as sailing, water-skiing, wake-boarding, sailing and canoeing, fishing as well as three 9 Hole and two 18 hole Golf Courses around Crieff and Callander .

Nearby you will also find Ben Vorlich, a 985m-high hill that offers beautiful views of the North and West.

Escape with your loved ones to this homely Scotland cottage.

About the location

CALLANDER

Stirling 14 miles, Loch Lomond 30 miles, Perth 37 miles.

The popular tourist town of Callander, in the Stirling region of Scotland, sits on the River Teith and is known as the Gateway to the Highlands. Located on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and surrounded by beautiful scenery, Callander has been a favourite stopping point for tourists on their way to the Highlands for over 150 years. There is evidence of a settlement here reaching as far back as the Neolithic period, and to demonstrate this, a little way east of the town is Scotland’s largest chambered cairn, along with several Iron Age forts to the west. A disciple of Columba of Iona, Saint Kessog preached in this area in the 6th century and there is a knoll, Tom na Chessaig or Hill of Kessog, named in his honour, set near the River Teith. The town today is brimming with shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets, providing plenty of amenities. There are many walks and cycle paths around the town as well as the many lochs and hills of the nearby National Park. Callander is within easy reach of Stirling and Perth, and even Glasgow and Edinburgh can be found for a pleasant day trip either by car or train from Stirling.
