“Strathyre log cabin”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2017

Fantastic log cabin to stay in. Everything you needed was there. Great views to enjoy. Nice and peaceful place to relax. Great for walking and cycling.

“Home from home”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2017

My holiday experience at Balvaig was like a home away from home. It was comfortable cosy and well furnished with every need met and plenty of extras. There was no need to bring anything but food as everything else was there. The place was an ideal location to explore the trossacks and highlands with a cosy place to come home to. The cabins around were well spaced apart so not encroaching on each other and having the river on the doorstep was a bonus for any fishing enthusiasts. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday .

“Just Perfect”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2017

Fantastic holiday, beautiful location, lots of fantastic walks with plenty of amazing views from every angle. There is a good range of places to eat that take wet muddy dogs too! We stayed over half term with our two teenagers and a dog and have to say its one of the best holidays we have had. The owners were great giving us plenty of advise and information on the area Thank you for a perfect holiday.

We had a lovely time during the October break. Karen the owner has thought of every household amenity and the cabin is very well equipped and cosy. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds and spotting red squirrels, ducks, robins and kestrels from the window. There are a few local ponies too and we could see one from the kitchen window and another two near the kids play park which was just up the road behind the village shop. Strathyre itself is a scenic village with a lot of nice walks and a few places to eat but limited amenities. A car is a necessity if you want to explore the local area. Callander and Aberfoyle are within east reach by car and we also made it down to Loch Katrine for a Loch trip aboard a steam boat which was lovely. We also had a longer jaunt to Pitlochry and stayed for ththe Enchanted Forest tour which everyone really enjoyed. The cabin itself is peacefully located and a real haven to come back to after a busy day horse riding, hiking or just taking in the local scenery. We loved relaxing by the log fire with a hot toddy (adults) and a hot chocolate (kids!) and a movie from Karen's extensive DVD collection. I think we went at a perfect time of year, beautiful Autumn foliage, not too cold yet (most days apart from a couple of rainy days we just wore jumpers- no coats) and no dreaded midges to worry us!

“Cosy, Homely, and Warm”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2015

We stayed here for a weekend in November 2015. It was a miserable weekend with heavy rain, but we felt all cosy and warm in front of the log fire in this great wee cabin. Lot's of thought has been put into the place, with all the essentials (salt etc) already in the cupboards, unlike other log cabins in the area we have stayed at. There was loads of wood and firelighters left, an umbrella at the door, a torch. If you have forgot to lift it before leaving home, Karen has already thought of it. We will definitely be back, hopefully the weather will be nicer next times.

“the cabin with everything”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2015

Nicely located by the river with the privacy of a small site but within 5 minutes walk of the village shop the cabin is equiped with everthing you could need for a holiday of this type although we only used it as a touring base clean and tidy with graet comunication from Karen from the start.

“A fantastic, cosy cabin in a picture perfect setting”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2013

Greeted on arrival by Karen who gave us a helpful tour of the cabin and tips on what there is to do and where to go in the area, many of which we visited. The cabin is everything we imagined a log cabin to be - solid timber, warm and cosy with a log fire, very well equipped, comfortable soft sofas and a very comfy bed which were very appreciated after a long day outside walking! The situation couldn't be better - surrounded by snow capped mountains and pine forest with fantastic walks. At the rear wild birds and red squirrels frequent feeders whilst a river runs past which are best viewed whilst washing the dishes! The only pub in the village is The Inn, which we visited several times, serving great home cooked food and guest ales. We were made to feel very welcome as was our dog who was provided with a bowl of water and a bonio! All in all a fantastic week was had, it was sad to leave but we will return soon.
