Your Loch Katrine self-catering hosts

Angela & Kieran

Passionate about Scotland, having lived in Orkney for almost two decades, we purchased this beautiful property in 2019 and set about upgrading it. As two busy professionals, we are indebted to Jennie and her team at Flawless Cleaning for keeping everything spick and span on a day-to-day basis. When we manage to spend time at Lochside, we love to explore the stunning and wildlife-rich environment. Kieran is a keen amateur triathlete and trains rigorously in the three disciplines. Angela is more of a walker and photographer and loves the abundant flora and fauna.


If you’re looking for peace and quiet with amazing surroundings, head for Lochside House. Considering it can accommodate up to 10 people it is really excellent value for money. There is everything you need in the kitchen etc. to cook any meal of your choice.

Lochside house is located in an idyllic setting, we enjoyed swimming in the loch every day (which was a lovely temperature for our July holiday). The property was spacious with a well equipped kitchen and a good selection of games. The fridge was possibly a little small for a week long holiday for a large family, would probably recommend ordering some groceries to arrive part way through a stay to manage the space. The views from the property were fantastic and we look forward to staying here again in the future.

Angela was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole stay and the house was so much more than we could ever imagine!!

I could easily spend a whole week sitting in this beautiful house! Wonderful views and will definitely be returning in the future!


Fabulous place, amazing views and swimming in what felt like your own Loch was definitely a highlight. The house is remote so you need to have everything with you (midges obv bad ) but it’s one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever been to would recommend.


Angela’s house was really clean and well presented. The views were beautiful, any window you looked out of had a great view! The kitchen had everything you need to rustle up some food salt/pepper/ oil etc which was great. The house was 3 floors of steps up which was a bit harder for my elderly mum and we didn’t realise there would have been neighbours out having BBQS etc. It is really remote and is perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of town! The Pier Cafe was lovely. Would recommend this apartment and Angela was great at answering all questions.


Beautiful location, incredible views over the Loch from the apartment windows. Plenty to do and lots to explore nearby. The apartment is lovely, well equipped and very clean. Angela was really quick to respond to any queries both before and during our stay.

Angela was a great host who gave us all the information we needed before we arrived at the property so we felt very prepared and the apartment had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Photos can’t quite do justice to just how spectacular the views of the loch are from the property! The location was ideal for sightseeing around the area. There are lots of great walks you can do directly from the property and beautiful views everywhere you turn. If you have a car, we would recommend visiting the nearby waterfalls close by (Inversnaid falls and the Falls of Leny were two of our favourites). We would also recommend visiting the ruins of Finlarig Castle just outside Killin. The apartment was the perfect escape for us on our long weekend away. I would definitely recommend!


Where can we eat out nearby?2021-09-04T15:29:33+00:00

The nearest places to eat are in Aberfoyle (check TripAdvisor for listings). For fine dining, there are some great places a bit further afield. See our “About” page for more info.

Where can we buy groceries?2021-09-04T15:24:14+00:00

The nearest town, Aberfoyle, is 11 miles, about 20-25 minutes’ drive away, where there is a large Co-op. You can also order deliveries online from the major supermarkets (Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s). Guests usually like to bring plenty of food with them so that they don’t have to worry about running out. Lochside House has a full-height fridge and a worktop-height freezer. Lochside Apartment has a worktop-height fridge and the same size freezer.

Will there be anyone else staying in the same property?2021-09-04T15:22:28+00:00

The building you can see on the photos is divided into four. Lochside House is the section on the right-hand side of the garden wall, and Lochside Apartment is at the top, in the centre gable, and in the third storey above the house.

Is there anything for kids to do in the area?2021-09-04T15:28:37+00:00

There is a Go Ape adventure centre just north of Aberfoyle, where there are also some nice woodland walks with info boards for kids. There’s also a water activity centre in Kinlochard. Loch Ard forest, just at the turnoff in Milton, has some great lakeside walks as well. And you can take a trip on the Loch Katrine steamer.

Do you accept dogs?2021-09-04T15:27:36+00:00

We do! But since we anticipate that our guests and their four-legged friends will be getting pretty muddy, and given that we also want to keep our rooms hair-free for other guests, we ask that you do not allow your dog on the carpeted areas. This means keeping your dog downstairs in the house, and upstairs in the apartment, and not in the bedrooms. Please also do not allow your dog to run around without a lead outside, as we have to be mindful of guests in the neighbouring properties. Thank you for your help with this!

Can we use the garden for barbecues etc.?2021-09-04T15:22:14+00:00

The lawn that you can see in some of the photos belongs to the neighbour, so that isn’t something we can offer our guests. But the stone-chipped area around the house belongs to us, and is available for you to park as well as sit outside. We have a fire pit and a chiminea for our guests, as well as a picnic bench. Please be aware of noise carrying, especially to the apartment and neighbouring cottage, and be considerate of other guests, especially those with children who may be in bed!
