Welcome to Letter Steading,Loch Katrine(Trossachs)

A beautifully restored detached cottage on the private shore road of Loch Katrine, with two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and open plan kitchen/sitting area with log burning stove. In a fantastic position surrounded by glorious countryside and open aspects to Loch Katrine. Wonderful walking, cycling, climbing and private fishing with wildlife and bird spotting. In the summer months the SS Sir Walter Scott sails by regularly, alongside The Lady of the Lake. Take a cruise from the Trossachs Pier nearby and take in the fabulous views from the Loch. We are in the middle of Rob Roy MacGregor country!!

Outside we have a charcoal barbecue ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Situated on the north shore of Loch Katrine approximately 30 minutes drive from nearby Callander and Aberfoyle where you will find plenty of shops and restaurants, the cottage is on a private road little used by vehicles. Loch Katrine is stuated within the stunning Trossachs National Park just over an hour from Glasgow or Edinburgh airports. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, some covered by snow in winter months, we have stunning scenery second to none. Whatever the time of year the surrounding area is gorgeous - in Springtime there's the bluebells and fresh greenery everywhere, in summer lush wildflowers, harebells and wild orchids, then in autumn the changing colours of the leaves as they fall...ending in a winter wonderland of peace and tranquility. Because of our location a car is obviously a necessity.

Nearby, about 15 minutes drive away, we have the lovely Byre Inn - wonderful food and great ambience. You'll be sure of a warm welcome. There's the tearoom at Stronachlacher Pier, and one also at the Trossachs Pier end. But for wonderful cakes and scones you must visit the Wee Blether at Kinlochard, about 25 minutes drive away but what a drive! Stunning scenery so get your camera out. There are plenty of restaurants/tearooms both in Callander and Aberfoyle. Great fish supper at Mhor Fish in Callander and tasty pizzas at Ciros. For a really special meal visit Monachyle Mhor in Balquhidder or the Roman Camp Hotel in Callander.

This is a great location for outdoor activities, but if it's history you're interested in then we have loads of it on our doorstep. Visit the MacGregor graveyards at the top end of the loch, Dunblane cathedral or Inchmahome Priory to name but a few. We have loads of tourist leaflets in the cottage to whet your appetite. But if it's rest and relaxation you need - look no further, this is the place. Sit on the decking and watch the many birds that visit our feeders (we provide food for you to top them up during your stay) or sit in the Wendy house and light the fire - maybe a tot of whisky to watch the sun go down?
