Picturesque Cottage

This beautiful cottage, with it’s magnificent gardens, can be found on the old road to the village of Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond. The whole landscape around the Loch is spectacular, part of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The Highest mountain in the area (Ben Lomond) is amongst several peaks you will see, as you travel along the shoreline. There are 22 islands with names (as per the official chart ‘A Guide to Navigation’) plus at least 27 islets. Most, but not all, have the ‘inch’ prefix, from Gaelic innis – island.  The surrounding highlands area is home to red deer and oak woodlands. On the eastern shore, footpaths and cycle trails criss-cross craggy Ben Lomond mountain and the smaller Conic Hill. Across the loch, Luss Heritage Path winds through rolling countryside and ancient Luss village, with its stone cottages.
