Self-catering in the Trossachs of Scotland

Our Airbnb self-catering properties are located near Loch Lomond in The Trossachs in a stunning, tranquil setting right on the edge of Loch Katrine. This is walking, running, birdwatching country for outdoor-loving folk. Lochside House and Apartment are two self-contained self-catering properties near Stirling forming the major part of an impressive Victorian mansion, built in 1900. The house has been modernised and has grand, high ceilings, but is cosy and warm all year round, with central heating and a wood-burning stove when needed. Lochside House sleeps 10 people, while Lochside Apartment sleeps six, and the two can been booked together if desired. There is an interconnecting door between the two, which is left unlocked for joint bookings. Perfect for family/friend gatherings, yoga retreats, or just to get away from it all!
