The surrounding area is well known for its pretty villages and excellent choice of shops, pubs and restaurants. Leisure facilities can be found within a three mile radius of the property. The area is also renowned for its abundance of walking and cycling trails - the perfect way to unwind and to immerse oneself in this most scenic of Scottish regions. Loch Lomond, one of the great lochs of Scotland, is only 7 miles away at Balmaha. A variety of boat trips across and around this majestic stretch of water are available and it is also possible to hire a boat/kayak or buy a fishing permit for the day. The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park offers plenty of hill walking, ranging from a brisk ramble to more serious Munro "bagging". Golfers are also well catered for as there are numerous golf courses in the area. Balloch (just 9 miles from the property) is the home to the National Park Gateway Centre and the Loch Lomaond Shores and a Sea- life centre. Stirlingshire has a number of historic sites - Stirling Castle for example - and all within easy reach. By way of change of scene, it is possible to catch a train from Milngavie to the great city of Glasgow and its wonderful choice of amenities; its retail facilities are second to none and its cultural facilities enjoy an international reputation. River Cottage enjoys a peaceful location, idyllic for relaxing and enjoy the countryside and an excellent base to explore further a field.

Gorgeous little cottage in a perfect location for Loch Lomond provided you have a car, though there is a bus too. Croftamie is quiet but Drymen is larger and only a mile away.
The property was well maintained and very comfortable. Even though the owners are within such close range there is no interference from them unless required. Very helpful if needed.
We loved our stay in River Cottage and could have stayed even longer had it not been booked already. It was everything we wanted peace and quiet.
