Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Craigdarroch Cottage is a quaint newly refurbished coachman's cottage which dates back some 100 years. It is located in a peaceful spot in the centre of St Fillans in Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. St Fillans is a pretty village situated on the banks of Loch Earn.
The cottage is ideally located to explore the National Park and the Southern Highlands. There is plenty to do including walking, cycling, golfing, fishing and water-sports. You can access several walks directly from the cottage from a gentle stroll along an old railway or be more adventurous in the surrounding mountains; both providing stunning views of Loch Earn. Wildlife is in an abundance in the surrounding area including red deer, ospreys on the loch and red squirrels. Each season brings its own stunning scenery and provides fantastic photography opportunities.
The cosy cottage benefits from a loch view which you can enjoy while relaxing with your feet up in front of the wood burning stove after a day in the Scottish countryside. The living area is open plan with a kitchen, cooker island with breakfast bar, dining table and comfortable sofas surrounding the log burner. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering.
Bed linen and towels are provided and heating is included in the rental price. A starter fire pack will be provided. Further wood and peat can be bought locally either in the Village Store or nearby Comrie.
St Fillans Village Store is located a few minutes walk from the cottage where you can buy groceries and newspapers. It also has a cafe providing snacks, coffee, ice cream and cakes. You can purchase fishing permits here for Loch Earn.
There are three hotels in the village. Two are seasonal opening and offer evening meals if you feel like dining out. The third one has just been purchased (Aug 2013) by Arran Breweries. It is reported that it will be refurbished and facilities will include a micro brewery, bar and restaurant. It is hoped that some of the facilities will be available by summer 2014.
St Fillans has its own 9 hole golf course, each hole is challenging and the scenery is breathtaking. There are many golf courses to choose from the vicinity including the prestigious Gleneagles.
Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Stirling can all be reached by car within 1 hour 15 mins.
Well behaved dogs are welcome in the cottage (extra charge applicable).
Short breaks may be possible in low season or last minute. Please contact owner for availability.

"A great escape to the country"
Craigdarroch cottage is the perfect location for a holiday to get away from it all. With views of loch earn, and a roaring log burning fire, it was the perfect way to spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Lots of great walks to explore from the doorstep.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed 3 lovely nights at Craigdarroch Cottage. It had everything we hoped for and we thoroughly loved every moment of our time there. The kitchen facilities were excellent and we enjoyed cooking our own meals. The log fire was also excellent - a perfect way to spend a cold winter's night. Bedroom, bathroom and living area have also been built to a very high standard.
The cottage is ideally located for exploring the lovely Perthshire countryside; we enjoyed several walks and even managed 9 holes of golf at the local course.
The only down part of the stay was that we had to leave. Looking forward to coming back sometime soon.
