Welcome to Tigh a' Mhaide and The Trossachs
Coronavirus update: We will be re-opening on July 15 as lockdown restrictions ease. Advance bookings can now be made subject to Government guidance on travel. See here for details of how we are adapting to Covid-19.
Nestling between Lochs Achray and Venachar, in the stunning scenery of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, this lovely self-catering holiday home sleeps four. Bright, comfortable and well equipped, the private and self-contained annex to our historic cottage in Brig o’ Turk is an ideal base for exploring or relaxing.
Brig o' Turk is a quiet, rural village about seven miles west of Callander and eight miles north of Aberfoyle in the heart of The Trossachs, one of the most beautiful yet accessible areas of the Scottish Highlands. Tigh a' Mhaide is surrounded by native woodland close to An Dubh-Abhainn (The Black Water) in an area that has been a favourite destination for visitors since Sir Walter Scott published The Lady of the Lake, a narrative poem set at nearby Loch Katrine.
Popular with walkers, cyclists and nature lovers keen to explore the lochs, glens, peaks and woodland of The Trossachs, Brig o' Turk also offers an away-from-it-all destination for those seeking a relaxing break.
Lochside and woodland walks start on the doorstep and hill walks, including the three peaks of Bens A'an, Venue and Ledi are within easy reach. Located beside the Great Trossachs Path, Tigh a' Mhaide is a wonderful starting point for exploring the Great Trossachs Forest National Nature Reserve.
The village and surrounding countryside also have rich historical, literary and artistic connections. Nearby Glen Finglas was a royal hunting forest for Scottish kings and nobles for three centuries, and Queen Victoria visited Tigh a' Mhaide during a private holiday to The Trossachs in 1869. The area is associated with the Glasgow Boys group of artists who took inspiration from the landscape.
For a holiday amid the stunning scenery of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, whether quietly relaxing, energetically active or somewhere in between, Tigh a' Mhaide is the perfect choice. The two ensuite bedrooms can be configured as a kingsize or twin room and a double, making it as suitable for families as couples and friends. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome. The accommodation is modern, comfortable and well equipped so that getting away from it all needn't mean sacrificing convenience.
We look forward to welcoming you.
