2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Strathyre, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Scotland
This well appointed log cabin can sleep up to 5 people and is well suited to families. There's just SO much to see and do in this beautiful part of Scotland.

The cabin is situated in a wonderful setting, right by a river in a small picturesque estate, a stroll from the beautiful highland village of Strathyre with shop, great pub and restaurants. The accommodation is over two floors with a comfortable lounge and dining area, open plan modern kitchen and shower room on the ground floor. This layout is great for allowing everyone to interact whilst catering but you can also escape for some quiet time upstairs.

Well maintained, beautiful cabin with a great view overlooking water - don't think I've ever enjoyed washing up so much but that view is amazing! We were even visited by a red squirrel and an owl! (It's a big deal when you're from London and the only wildlife you're used to is pigeons...). It was such a peaceful and restful...
