The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Finnich Cottages are just 15 miles (24km) north-west of Glasgow and 24 miles (38.5km) west of Stirling. Ideally positioned for touring to many of Scotland's most famous sights.
Finnich Steading Cottages lie on the southern edge of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park which is the 4th largest park in the British Isles. With its romantic scenery, diverse wildlife and vast choice of outdoor activities available, there is something here for everyone!
For those who just want to relax, the peace and tranquillity of the Finnich Estate with woodland walks and an easy stroll up to view points to Loch Lomond and the Highlands is all you could wish for.
Loch Lomond National Park
What to do:
Walking - the National Park and the surrounding hills provide a full range of routes to suit all abilities, from strolls along the shores of Loch Lomond to climbing to the peak of Ben Lomond. The West Highland Way also passes through the nearby village of Drymen.
Cycling - Mountain Biking on routes throughout the National Park or more leisurely cycling between the many places of interest including the West Loch Cycle Path.
Water Sports - Loch Lomond provides a full range of aquatic sports from sailing to jet skiing and motor boating. For the more leisurely there are cruises on Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine, a chance to see the incredible beauty of the area from the water.
Fishing - available on Loch Lomond and also on the River Endrick, this ranges from fly fishing for salmon, coarse fishing and loch fishing for brown trout. Permits can be purchased locally.
Golf - Finnich Steading Cottages are ideally placed to visit world-class Scottish courses including Loch Lomond and Gleneagles. Local courses who welcome visitors include Buchanan Castle, Hilton Park and The Vale of Leven. There is also Strathendrick Golf Club, a nine-hole public course on the outskirts of Drymen just 3 miles away.
Shooting - just outside Balloch, there is a shooting school with excellent clay pigeon facilities.
Wildlife - whatever the season, wildlife abounds throughout the area and indeed at Finnich itself. There are red and row deer in the woods and forests, and the bird life includes Golden Eagles, Ospreys and Falcons. The woods and hedges at Finnich are host to pheasants, woodcock and a wide variety of smaller song birds.
Whisky Trail - The area has a long history of involvement with Scotland's greatest liquid product. Apart from the illicit stills which used to be scattered in the hills, many major brands were blended and bottled in Dumbarton including Teachers Ballantines and J&B, using the pure water from Loch Katrine. Now there is only Chivas Regal's modern factory on the banks of the Leven and the Loch Lomond Distillery in Alexandria.
The jewel of Malt Distilleries is Glengoyne only three miles away from Finnich Cottages. Lying below Dumgoyne Hill it is a picturesque boutique distillery producing world acclaimed malts of different ages and finishes.

"Wonderful autumn days in the National Park Loch Lomond and the Trossachs"
If you are looking for the perfect place in Scotland to have it all - come here ! Tranquility, spectacular views of the Highlands, a buzzing urban city (Glasgow) around the corner and all other famous places of Scotland in reach - what can you expect more ? Also, a wonderful and beautifully renovated steading with all amenities of modern life, enough space for a large family or party and a fantastic park and forest around. You will not find it boring to sit in the large window for hours, watching the weather, the sunlight and the clouds changing every 10 seconds !
