The perfect romantic bolt hole, Trunkie Cottage is located in the heart of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and surrounded by mountains, lochs and breath-taking scenery. Nestled in the peaceful and picturesque hamlet of Brig o’ Turk, this is an ideal choice for guests who want to relax and unwind.
Upon arrival guests will find this spacious eco-friendly cottage has been designed and furnished to provide everything you will need for a relaxing break for two. On the ground floor is an open plan living area you will find the kitchen has been fitted with quality contemporary appliances and leads to a light and airy seating area with a cosy wood burner, ideal for relaxing on cooler evenings, and double patio doors which lead to the garden. The open-tread, spiral stairs lead to a galleried bedroom with a comfortable super kingsize bed and an en-suite shower room fitted with a volcanic rock basin and large shower cubicle.
Stepping out from the door, there are miles of footpaths and cycle trails in the surrounding area. Just a couple of minutes walk away is the famous village tea room, featured in the ’39 Steps’ film, a local pub and post office. This scenic area has been attracting visitors for generations including Queen Victoria and was an essential part of any Victorians visit to Scotland, you can follow in the footsteps of John Ruskin and the Glasgow Boys who brew inspiration for art and poetry from their visits to Brig o’ Turk.
There is a lot to do in the area, such as a cruise on the steam ship, Sir Walter Scott, on Loch Katrine, a forest drive, whiskey distilleries, ancient monuments and castles to visit. The bustling Victorian tourist town of Callander is only 5 minutes drive and well worth a visit. Situated on the River Teith, this pretty town is often known as the gateway to the Highlands. Just 40 minutes drive is the historic city of Stirling which boasts a magnificent castle, several historic sites, a shopping centre and lots of restaurants, cafés and bars. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 100 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.
