    “Strone house is a "get away from it all" home from home.”

    Mac and Julie are very accommodating and considerate hosts. Hot tub and sauna are fab facilities as is the games room that is full of every game you could imagine so something for everyone. The garden is beautiful and again equipped with outdoor sports. Lovely treats left for the 3 dogs that were with us too so they felt spoiled. Downside to the property is there is no mention of the rooster starting his daily alerts between 2 and 4am so often we were all up before 5am. Location of the cot room ...

    Mac and Julie are very accommodating and considerate hosts. Hot tub and sauna are fab facilities as is the games room that is full of every game you could imagine so something for everyone. The garden is beautiful and again equipped with outdoor sports. Lovely treats left for the 3 dogs that were with us too so they felt spoiled. Downside to the property is there is no mention of the rooster starting his daily alerts between 2 and 4am so often we were all up before 5am. Location of the cot room is above the fire place (needs a clear out as the smoke enters the room, however cleared with the doors open) so the smoke rises through the ceiling which is not ideal for a baby, simple solution is to have the cot room on the other side of the house. All in all the 10 of us enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone looking to get away from everyday life to come here

The property

This fascinating house, an authentic 16th-century detached farmhouse, sits in an idyllic position at the head of Glen Fruin, in the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Here you can experience a real sense of history amongst the echoes of the past, as this is the site, in 1603, of a major battle between the MacGregors and the Colquhouns. The beamed ceilings, stone walls and wood floors all add to the timeless beauty of this very special house. It is surrounded by an acre of attractive terraced gardens where peacocks, ducks and hens roam freely - a chance to collect free-range eggs for breakfast. The owners have chosen to furnish the house in the style of a lived in family home with may artefacts and antiques in evidence in most rooms. This appeals to those looking for a comfy home from home feel but the owners are also happy to remove items for those parties with children. From the gardens, you hear the gentle sounds of the Fruin Water, which flows idly down to Loch Lomond just 8 miles away. Strone House is an ideal location for that special family holiday, and the area offers something for all ages. Anglers and golfers can enjoy their pursuits locally, and hill walkers are spoilt for choice with the Arrochar Alps so close. We draw your attention to the military base at Faslane. From time to time, exercises may be taking place in the general area of Strone House and whilst being of interest to those with an interest in military activities may be a consideration for others.

Note: There will be an additional charge of £25 per dog per booking.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
