A large, well-equipped, breakfasting kitchen is the hub of this family friendly, but sophisticated large holiday house. French doors lead out on to the garden, and the kitchen itself is a blend of stylish maple, black granite and stainless steel finishes. The kitchen leads through easily to a spacious and airy dining room, complete with multi-fuel stove and beautiful antique furniture. There are two lounges: a cosy 'snug' with multi-fuel stove, and hand built stone fireplace, and a supremely elegant main sitting room, tastefully furnished in warm tones, with huge leather sofas, and French doors to the gardens. Both are ideal for relaxing with a good book, whatever the weather, while the children make full use of the large games room again with French doors to the garden.
Upstairs two of the bedrooms, with large king sized beds and sumptuous furnishings, benefit from en suite shower rooms and French doors leading to Juliet Balconies. Two further bedrooms and bathrooms make this the ideal property for family and friends to gather and enjoy the light and spacious surroundings, or as the ideal touring base.
Complimentary Welcome Pack upon arrival consisting of Bottle Red Wine, Shortbread, Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Milk, Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper. Cleaning starter pack also supplied containing all your essentials.
The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park region
ARGYLL; THE ISLES, LOCH LOMOND, STIRLING AND TROSSACHS
This is the birthplace of Scotland, the cradle of its Christianity and nationhood, and the focal point of much of its dramatic history.
Here you can savour the atmosphere of Hebridean islands, the charm of rural villages and the natural frontier which separates the rugged grandeur of the West Highlands from the gentler beauty of the Lowlands.
Here too, you can trace the footsteps of heroes like St Columba, Sir William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary, Queen of Scots ... and of outlaws like Rob Roy.
These are lands where you can glimpse an eagle, an osprey, a wildcat, a fine antlered stag or even whales and dolphins. And if the fancy takes you, you can enjoy the spectacle of a Highland Games, the warmth of a traditional folk night or the flavour of a local food festival.
Scotland's first great travel writer, Sir Walter Scott, was captivated by the beauty of this fascinating area. In his best-selling poem, 'The Lady of the Lake', he wrote of the landscapes around Loch Katrine:
'From Kintyre to Killin and Tobermory to Tillicoultry, an open invitation awaits you in these heartlands of Scotland.'
The same holds true today as it did in Scott's time.
GREATER GLASGOW & CLYDE VALLEY
Voted 'Favourite UK City 2006' by readers of Condé
Naste Traveller magazine, Glasgow enjoys a year-round buzz that visitors just love.
Glasgow was also the UK's City of Architecture and Design in 1999 and its architecture is certainly an attraction in itself. Central Glasgow's Manhattan-style town planning affords many sweeping vistas of the city's impressive Victorian buildings, dotted with little gems from the medieval to the present day. But its the Art Nouveau 'Glasgow Style' for which the city has become famous, and no one should miss the work of one of Glasgow's most celebrated sons, architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Glasgow is also a shoppers' paradise, second only to London for sheer volume and variety. It's also just so stylish too, with funky bars, boutique hotels and vibrant nightlife.
The city's arts scene is world-class. Over 200 arts organisations, including Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, are based there, creating the cutting-edge productions and attracting high-profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned as a European City of Culture.
Surrounding Glasgow is some of the best of Scotland's scenery, from the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley to the beautiful walking country of East Dunbartonshire that borders the south-west Highlands. Exploring further, you'll find that many of the towns and villages in the area such as Paisley, Hamilton, Biggar, Greenock, Gourock and of course the amazing New Lanark World Heritage Site make great day excursions from the city and offer a range of attractions that make discovering their rich history a real joy.

Situated in Scotland’s first National Park, and with Loch Lomond, and the majesty of Ben Lomond close by, the area is staggeringly beautiful. A huge variety of outdoor activities are on offer; golfers have the choice of many top class courses all within easy reach, including the championship course of Loch Lomond, as well as the Buchanan Castle course and the delightful 8 holes of Stathendrick, which are only minutes away. The Drymen and East Loch Lomond area is a veritable paradise for anglers of every level of experience. The waters of this area are the home to many different types of fish including: brown & rainbow trout, perch, pike, salmon and roach, whilst Loch Lomond, the largest freshwater loch in Scotland, offers a wide range of water sports, to suit all ages and abilities, including sailing, canoeing and waterskiing. For avid horse riders, stables are situated within the Buchanan Castle Estate itself.
The village of Drymen itself is endlessly charming, with local amenities, several fine pubs and eateries, a leisure and sports complex open to the public, as well as a variety of events including ceilidhs, agricultural shows, and dances at Hogmanay. With the historic town of Stirling and its castle, battlefields and monuments, and Glasgow, the City of Culture and Entertainment both less than half an hours drive away, this delightful holiday house has something to offer everyone.

"Scenic, cozy, and great staff to boot"
I stayed at Strathendrick house for new years 2012-2013 with a group of friends. Ker was extremely understanding while I arranged a complex trip involving people from all corners of the globe! He was flexible on dates among many other things. His staff was amazing when my bank accidentally sent way too much rent money in a bank transfer. Ker's staff was responsive and accommodating. When we were charged for damages, Ker was very flexible in coming to an agreement we were both comfortable with. I feel like we weren't the easiest of renters and Ker managed to take it in stride! The house was beautiful and on a lovely estate. I wasn't expecting the house to be refurbished as much as it was-- we were expecting something more rustic and got a very comfortable refurbished house (which was lovely, but unexpected). 5 stars to Ker, his staff, and his beautiful house.

"A large comfortable house suitable for all the family"
The house was lovely, plenty of space for 6 adults, 1 toddler and 2 babies. Not only could the adults and toddler have their own rooms there were adequate (4) bathrooms/shower-rooms for all. The kitchen had everything we needed, although we did have to arrange a delivery of essential foods to start us off, as we arrived during a bank holiday w/e. Our 2 year old granddaughter loved the garden, especially the trampoline. The house was in a beautiful setting and convenient for visiting other places on Loch Lomond or further afield.

"Fantastic house in a lovely setting"
I stayed at Strathendrick House with my boyfriend for a few days and we loved it. I especially liekd the fact that it is kind of secluded and the garden area is lovely, plus there is a stream at the bottom of the garden which sounds great. Very peaceful. The house is quite large, especially the bedrooms, so there is heaps of space. The kitchen is fun too, although we would have liked to have had at least some essentials - ie. tea towels, washing up liquid, salt / pepper, cooking oil etc - the stuff you normally find in self catering places. And there was hardly any toilet roll left. so if you do stay here, do bring your own stuff. Otherwise, this house is great - perfect for Summer as there is a big table and chairs outside for lounging about, in Winter I imagine it would be very cosy..

"Beautiful home in a tranquil setting"
We booked this quite 'last minute' for a New Year break and the owner was very accommodating and helpful. The house is stunning and nicely furnished with what are obviously personal items. Loads of space in the house so you don't trip over each other, and the kitchen/dining space is great for entertaining and hanging out! A short stroll through the estate and you're in Drymen for coffee, lunch or shopping, and a short car journey to Balloch and other places for waks, etc. Certainly one of the best houses we've rented for this sort of break!
