Lovely cottage. Well equipped with high spec facilities. Great location for lots of walks without needing to drive to them!

Anne, Harrogate, 

Lovely cottage in a picturesque location, close to multiple trails and peaks. Made to feel very welcome from outset with easy check in. Cottage was spotless with everything we needed for a rural retreat. Dogs were welcomed, even had dog treats waiting for them. Lovely stay. Will definitely be visiting again.

Jonathan, Beverley, Yorks, 

What a lovely stay! 5***** Absolutely spotless little annex, in a beautiful location. We stayed for 5 nights over New Year and were extremely happy with our stay and Hilary's attention to detail. We were very impressed as the house was kitted out with 2 en-suites, extra large beds, lots of games, a coffee machine, Netflix, good wifi and a washer/dryer - perfect for a little adventure stay! Although you are staying in the annex next to Hilary's house, we had a beautifully quiet stay, with no interruptions. We were delighted with the location. Also very close to some great walks- we'd highly recommend Ben A'an. And even a wacky pub down the road with eccentric owners, not for the faint of heart but laughs all round. Hilary was a great host, she provided plenty of information regarding our stay as well as some great local recommendations.

Emily, London, 

This is a beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings. It has everything you need for a really comfortable stay, and we loved it. Comfy in every way, simply cannot recommend Hilary's cottage highly enough. Fab!

Moira, Culloden, 

Highly recommended, lovely hosts, fabulous location, 5 stars.

Amazing property set in arguably the most beautiful part of the Trossachs - Hilary is a fantastic host with a very clean property full of character and mod cons

David, Warrington, 

What a delightful place to stay. The cottage is 'wow', the attention to detail is outstanding, the appliances are top notch. Thank you for being so welcoming.

The Anderson family, Durham, 

Over the years we have stayed at many cottages and, so far, this cottage has been the absolute best. Loved it!

The Shah family, London, 

Tigh a' Mhaide is a terrific base, tastefully and thoughtfully set up to maximise comfort. Would recommend the location and the accommodation in a heartbeat. Thanks for sorting the weather too!

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage. It's just perfect, sparkling clean, warm and peaceful. We will be back.

The Harris family, Chester, 

We have had a super lovely stay. The cottage has been very cosy and comfortable. A clever design for walkers. We appreciated all the lovely touches. Definitely will come again and recommend to others.

Florence, Rob and Charlie, Fife, 

Beautifully renovated cottage in a beautiful part of Scotland. The kitchen is great with all the little bits and bobs that you need and don't normally get. Five stars!!

Patrick and Amy, Edinburgh, 

We enjoyed a long weekend in this beautiful spot. Recommend sunrise up Ben A'an, a cycle round Loch Katrine and The Venachar Lochside for lunch. Hilary's created a warm, welcoming and well thought out place to stay - we loved it! Fantastic star gazing and the colours at this time of year are amazing. Thanks for your local recommendations and knowledge.

Jo and Dave, Edinburgh, 

What a fantastic place! Thank you for making it feel like a home away from home and your book of information was so helpful. We've left a part of our hearts here and hope to return again some day. Thanks to this cottage, we were able to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Megan, Phoebe & Dave, Tennessee, US, 

This was the best possible place for us to enjoy our family weekend. We were very much impressed with this wonderful place.

The Den Haan family, The Netherlands, 

Thank you for a wonderfully tranquil and cosy stay. Tigh a' Mhaide is the perfect place to explore The Trossachs. We are all very grateful to have found somewhere special to end our holiday in Scotland.

Polly & family, Ontario, Canada, 

We had a wonderful time discovering the area. The cottage is lovely, perfectly equipped, very clean. The showers are just perfect. We were all very pleased to stay here.

Patrick, Pascal & family, Nantes, France, 

Wonderfully comfortable beds and fabulous showers. The welcome pack is a delightful treat. We have had a lovely few days walking, collapsing here in the evenings. We had a delicious meal at The Byre Inn and enjoyed its eccentricity.

Rebecca, Derek & family, Worcestershire, 

We were overwhelmed with your beautifully equipped cottage. You made us feel so very welcome too. Great walk from the cottage to Glen Finglas, Lendrick Hill and back to the cottage.

Lizzie, Jay & family, Nottinghamshire, 

Congratulations for putting together such a fantastic cottage. The location is perfect for exploring Loch Lomond and surrounding areas. Hilary was a fantastic host. We had great days out, always returning to our warm, lovely cottage at the end of the day. Highly recommended and we'd love to return.

Phil, Gill & Bailey, Liverpool, 

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. The scenery is stunning, the interiors gorgeous and everything we needed was on hand. We recommend the walk up to Bracklin Falls. We hope to come back soon!
