Description

Invertrossachs Country House, approached by a single track tarmac road, is set in a most fantastic location in the heart of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Surrounded by hills, lochs and glens, this area has been attracting visitors for generations because of its tranquillity and beauty. Queen Victoria chose this site for her private visit to The Trossachs in 1869 and planted a tree in the grounds of the house which can be seen today. Built in 1911 as an Edwardian shooting lodge on the hillside overlooking Loch Venachar, Invertrossachs Country House is now a family home, and this apartment is located in a private wing of the owners’ house. The Rob Roy Apartment has an open plan living area with views over the grounds and loch, and two bedrooms.
For guests wanting a relaxing hideaway in a peaceful and secluded environment, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, this is the perfect location at any time of the year. In this privileged location, guests are able to explore the 24-acre grounds with direct access to the loch shore, perfect for fishing, and enjoy lovely woodland walks. A great area for guests who enjoy nature, the estate is a haven for wildlife, with deer, pine martens, otter and many different wild birds, flora and fauna.
For the more adventurous, this area is famous for the variety of outdoor activities, with cycle trails, hill walking, sailing, canoeing, pony trekking, fishing and golf all surrounded by spectacular scenery. The popular tourist town of Callander is within short driving distance, 6 miles, and has good places to eat, coffee shops, galleries and tourist shops, and also hosts regular events including the highland games. For guests who want to explore further afield, Stirling is only a 40-minute drive, and Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow are an hour away. Gleneagles can be reached within 45 minutes and St Andrews within 2 hours. Supermarket home deliveries can be scheduled online. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.
The Rob Roy Apartment can be booked together with The McGregor Apartment (UK5809) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

About the local area

Loch Lomond is the single biggest expanse of inland water in the British Isles. The broad island-dotted shallows in the south gradually narrow into deeper water surrounded by steep sided mountains dominated by Ben Lomond. The loch is ideal for sailing and water-sports and there are some beautiful walks.

Talk a gentle stroll through Queen Elizabeth Forest Park or Balloch Castle Country Park and visit charming lochside villages and sandy bays. There really is something for everyone. If hill walking, cycling, boating, golf, wildlife watching, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing or mountain biking are your thing then this is THE place to go!

Nearby to the north is The Trossachs National Park, with heather-clad peaks known as `The Highlands in Minature'. This place includes the Crainlairch and Ben Lawers mountain ranges, which are amongst the highest in Scotland. A true haven for keen walkers and hikers. For more relaxing activities visit one of the many historic buildings in the area or take a guided bush craft tour, try bird watching, or do a spot of retail therapy. The Trossachs is a wonderful area to visit and no trip to Scotland would be complete without spending some time in the area.
