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 two hotels in the village which offer evening meals if you feel like dining out (please note they have seasonal opening dates and times). 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. The bar is now open but again has seasonal opening times.
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.

"What a great place to stay"
Well laid out accommodation situated in some of the best scenic areas of Scotland. Ideally suited for hillwalking and Munro bagging. Hills on your doorstep. Local microbrewery about to open in the next few months and a local hostelry which made us very welcome. What more could you ask for?

"Nice but doggy!"
I was sick when we arrived at the property and so was very happy when I spotted the three seater couch, and a throw rug on the other. I just wanted to curl up and sleep (or die). I was so disappointed… More
I am sorry that you did not find my cottage to your satisfaction. This is the first year the cottage has been let so all feedback is helpful.
With regards to your comments the cottage is clearly advertised as pet friendly with no garden. A decking area has now been built but there is still no enclosed garden. I have had the living room rug taken away for cleaning and I have also bought a new one so they can be rotated regular for cleaning. The throw for the sofa is washed frequently and is not intended to be used for dogs so I can only apologise if it has been. With regards to the front door I had not been advised of any problems however I have now had this attended to - it had been a poorly cut key. I have not received any comments about operating problems with the dishwasher etc but I will look to include instructions in the welcome pack.
You also left feedback in my guest book regarding the bathroom fan not working after day one. Unfortunately you had turned it off at the wall so again I will look to provide instructions in case this happens in the future. I am glad to see your comment in the guest book
'Maybe the best cottage of our ten week stay in the UK so far. Like coming home every night after a day's sightseeing. Really cosy and comfortable'
Thank you for visiting Craigdarroch Cottage. I hope you enjoy the reminder of your holiday in the UK and wish you a safe trip home to Australia.

Craigdarroch cottage is amazing! It is in the most beautiful location with views of the stunning Loch Earn from the cottage itself. The owner provided great little touches for when we arrived - bottle of bubbly and treats for the dogs. The cottage is decorated beautifully and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped and was very clean. The bed was so comfortable and it was so quiet we could have slept all day. The cottage has a lovely wood burning stove but we didn't get to use it as the weather was so nice. The owner had provided directions for different walks in the area. We tried most of them and all had wonderful views. And of course the dogs loved them. We loved nearby Crieff and the Dalchonzie fruit farm. Well worth a visit. The owner was having decking built in the wooded area outside the cottage while we were there which will be lovely to sit on and watch the sun set when it is completed. There are so many amazing things to say about this cottage. The only picky thing was that the sofas were not very comfortable and were very springy. Despite this we loved our time at Craigdarroch cottage. We loved it so much we have booked again for New Year. Can't wait.

"Fabulous, cozy cottage in wonderful Perthshire"
We enjoyed a wonderful break at Craigdarroch cottage. Cottage is beautifully laid out and had everything we needed. Owner has done an amazing job in refurbishing the cottage. We played golf at Comrie and Killin, and enjoyed walks straight from the cottage door. Will definitely be back!

"Beautiful refurbished cottage with Loch views, pooch friendly"
Fantastic long weekend at this special cottage. Situated inside the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park it's an ideal base to explore the amazing Perthshire countryside. As soon as we walked through the door the stress of the working week evaporated. The cottage has been beautifully refurbished to a high standard and is well equipped for that perfect stay including the all important cork screw and wine cooler. Poppy the dog had a fantastic time too with walks straight from the front door, dog bed and some treats being an extra special touch. Would definitely recommend a stay.
