More information about Strone House

Property information

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 artifacts 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.

    We have just returned from this amazing property having celebrated our wedding anniversary with our extended family. Everything you could need is organised by the lovely owners. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail is second to none! Inside and outside the property oozes charmed character. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed all the wonderful facilities which included hot tub, sauna, barbecue, garden room (kids and adults lived in this). Definitely will recommend this property to friends and family.
  • Craig Menzies
    We booked Strone House this summer for my girlfriends 30th Birthday weekend and it was simply perfect! The house itself is absolutely beautiful with so many different and quirky, yet utterly brilliant rooms to enjoy. The surrounding gardens and hot tub, wildlife / pets, and games made sure that there was plenty to do during the day and what a perfect kitchen / dining room for a large group to have a meal. All of this, added to the lovely welcome we received from the owners created a weekend with so many great memories which we shall have forever! Thank you Mr & Mrs Ayres!!
  • Jim and Valerie Lang
    We had a Golden Wedding party here and it was simply wonderful! The house is amazing and the gardens, with flamboyant peacocks strutting around, are lovely - not to mention the hot tub, which was well used by the immediate family who were staying at the house. The owners, Julie and Mac are incredible. They just couldn't do enough for us and even went to the trouble of arranging the parking for 70/80 guests for the Saturday night party! We decorated the house with fairy lights and lit the huge log fire in the elegant drawing room. Our daughters, who had organised the whole event, arranged for there to be a hog roast outside (such a good idea!), a live band and a film screening on a loop. Our party guests had a great time and loved everything about the house. It was an amazing experience and we thank Julie and Mac for all they did to make our stay so memorable.
  • irene edgar
    Stayed at Strone House with four children plus partners and five grandchildren ages between 4and a half and seven months. The welcome was warm and owners considerate. The setting is lovely. The house is quirky and steeped in history which particularly entranced the Canadian contingent. The down side was the house is really not child friendly there are many lovely items of china and glass sitiing within reach. We did not want to use the dining room because of the lovely china so used the kitchen which is not really big enough for a large party. There is an electric aga from which we had to keep the children. There is a problem with getting enough hot water although there is an electric shower. The fire in the large living room filled the room with smoke think it needs the chimney swept. A good experience on the whole but better if you have fine weather and can spend time in the exceptional grounds.
  • andrew findlay
    We stayed at Strone House as a group of 5 couples. We used the house as a base for exploring the surrounding area and attending two Scotland football internationals in Glasgow. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable, the facilities in the house and outside were very good. The fire in the drawing room caused the room to become very smoky and the smoke filled the upstairs bedrooms, which was unfortunate as the fire looked great when lit. We also found ourselves using the downstairs shower as the one in the ensuite room and the adjacent one would not keep a steady temperature. I would like to thank the owners for their own hospitality which was fantastic and I think our group may visit again. A thoroughly good week...
  • Pickard, Villa and Benedetti families
    The weather was .... welll .... Scottish but Strone House and Mac and Julie's welcome and kindnesses more than made up for it. This house is quite simply a lovely place to be and easily and flexibly accommodates a large party (1 + 2 + 4 + 4 in our case). The piano's not bad either! Thanks. We may well haste ourselves back.
  • The Kruegers et al
    We had a fantastic New Year in this wonderful house. It has everything you could want! The owners are so kind and considerate and there were lovely personal touches everywhere. Thank you Strone House
  • Eva
    Hi, We spent my hen weekend there in May 2008 with a group of German and Scottish girls and it was absolutely amazing. The house is beautiful, the garden perfect, the peacocks enchanting and the owners incredibly helpful. I will definitely be back! Eva
