Description

Glengarry House was originally built as a Victorian villa by the station masters wife in 1865 as a private residence. Until 2020 Glengarry was a guest house run by the same family since 1983 and is still run by them to this day. This wonderful home is beautiful inside and out. From the welcoming hallway all the rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. With plenty of space for family and friends whether it be relaxing in the stunning living room, enjoying a meal in the dining room or soaking up the sun in the garden.

Glengarry is set in the picturesque town of Callander, known as ’the gateway to the Highlands’, in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Callander is situated on the banks of the River Teith, at the base of the towering Callander Crags and offers an excellent base for visitors to Scotland. The surrounding area can be explored by the many paths and trails, either by foot, car, motorbike, or for the more energetic on horseback or bicycle. Callander’s very own mountain, Ben Ledi, is just over a mile away and in good weather from the car park to the 2840ft summit can be reach in around 4 hours. From the summit you can see the Forth Bridge to the east and the Isle of Arran on the firth of Clyde - the whole width of Scotland.

Families can enjoy several local activities including a trip to the local safari park at Blairdrummond or a trip down memory lane to the Hamilton toy museum. For other days out there are whisky distilleries, historic buildings and castles all nearby. The city of Stirling is only a 20-minute drive away, or a little further afield, Edinburgh and Glasgow can be reached in just over an hour. Fishing and golf nearby. Shop and pub 500 yards, restaurant 300 yards.

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.
