In the awe-inspiring lands of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, it doesn’t get much better than staying in a home right on the banks of Loch Earn. With the heady scents of pine trees and the fresh loch air, your senses are surrounded by natural beauty wherever you turn – plus some even more beautiful sights in the cottage. A former bothy, this home has a history of protecting weary travellers from the Scottish elements. Today, it doesn't show much of its rustic roots. Bright red Chesterfields, zebra-print upholstery, an outdoor gym, bar, and private chef are just some of the updated features. Of course you’ll still find tartan throws and a wood-burning stove, but this home really defies expectations overall. But with panoramic views of the loch, and several outdoor areas for alfresco dining and fireside tales, you might be spending a lot of time outside. We recommend a scenic drive around Loch Earn to reach the foot of Ben Vorlich in forty-five minutes. Don’t forget your walking boots, this Munro is one of the best climbs in the area (an easy 985-metre walk to the summit).

Home truths:
*At full capacity, one guest can sleep on a single sofa bed upstairs – make sure to request this at the time of booking so it can be made up for your arrival
*Your host can arrange for a private chef, but you'll need to ask for this in advance when you book your stay
*Two well-behaved dogs may stay, but you need to bring your own blankets for the sofas and also pay a £20 fee per dog
*You'll need to be able to climb stairs to access the entire home
*Parking is available for free on the street and on the premises (we recommend bringing a car for this rural area)
*As the home allows for self check-in with a lockbox, you won't meet your host
*Cars going past on the main road outside might disturb light sleepers
