Creag Darach Cottage is a lovely semi-detached property, which is located in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, on the outskirts of the popular village of Aberfoyle. Creag Darach, translated to ‘oak tree on rock’, is nestled in the beautiful countryside with many majestic oak trees to see. The holiday cottage is well-equipped and is set over two floors. The setting is dramatically situated between Creag Mhor hill and the Avon Dhu River, which becomes the River Forth 100 yards from the cottage. The property has a downstairs shower room, a large family kitchen/dining room and a comfortable living room with wonderful ornate carved open fire - this room has a delightful view over the river. Upstairs there are three bedrooms – one double, a twin and a single, as well as a family bathroom. The half-acre garden is south-facing with a large lawn, outdoor seating and a shared gravel driveway. From the back garden there is direct access onto Creag Mhor hill.
This is a perfect holiday getaway, ideal if you enjoy long lochside walks, mountain climbing and bike rides. Situated only a few yards from the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park Milton entrance, where there are miles of designated footpaths and cycle tracks beyond, this property provides idyllic accommodation for outdoor enthusiasts. A series of fabulous art installations have been made in the forest, adding interest to this fascinating and magical place. This lovely property sits only a mile from the village and all essential amenities, including shops, pubs and restaurants.
