The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

The location is spectacular with views of the Campsie Fells and the farm is bounded to the South by the River Endrick. Ballochruin Farm is close to the villages of Killearn and Balfron and within 2 miles of the Loch Lomond National Park and the West Highland Way. The farm is in a very rural and quiet setting but is accessible to all major cities in Central Scotland. Stirling 30mins, Glasgow 40 mins, Perth and Edinburgh 60 mins.

In 2011 art4you Scotland has moved with their studio into our converted byre. art4you offeres various art classes, art weekends and art holiday weeks. For more information contact artist and art lecturer Ewen Duncan.

At Campsie Cottages we also focuses on our exceptional alpaca herd. We breed from some of the best bloodlines in the UK and this results in a very high standard of animal.
