Description

For a truly unique holiday location, Inchmurrin Island has to be the best and the scenery is breathtakingly stunning. Park your car on the shore of Loch Lomond, and after a short ferry journey, you arrive on the island. You are met and helped with your luggage, and taken to your holiday home.

The island has a fascinating history dating back to the 1300s and the ruins of the 14th-century castle, built by Duncan, the Eighth Earl of Lennox, can be seen along with other archaeological sites. The island has been attracting visitors for many centuries, some not always welcome. Rob Roy Macgregor raided the island in 1715 when it belonged to the Marquis of Montrose and stole all the cattle, deer and every boat on the loch. Kings and earls owned and visited the island for many centuries and it was stocked as a deer park. In 1930, the island was purchased by the Scott family who have lived and farmed Inchmurrin Island for three generations.

The superb self-catering properties comprise of three apartments and two lodges a short walk away. There is a restaurant and bar (open from March to November), boat mooring and a ferry service. The island is 1½ miles long and ½ mile wide, and is a great place to explore on foot or bike. Look out for the wildlife and admire the surrounding scenery. This is also a perfect location for watersport enthusiasts. For guests looking for a relaxing location to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this couldn’t be a better spot.

Set within Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, famed for its wild beauty, you can enjoy hill walking, mountain biking on forest trails, a cruise on Loch Lomond or a sea plane trip to see the scenery from a different view. The famous West Highland Way follows the shore of Loch Lomond, and the attractive villages such as Luss and Balmaha are worth a visit. There is so much to do for all ages.

Boturich, Balloch and Balmaha apartments are situated on the east side of the island a short walk from the lodges and are adjacent to the restaurant and
bar. They have direct access to a lawned garden leading to the beach and jetties, with plenty of space to berth boats, beach canoes and store kit such as windsurfers and paddleboards all ready to go. Each apartment has its own outdoor seating and barbecues with amazing views across Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond. They share a guest laundry/drying room, ideal for hanging wetsuits when our typical Scottish weather descends. Beach 10 miles. Shop on mainland, 4 miles, pub and restaurant on island, 100 yards.

Boturich Apartment can be booked together with Balloch Apartment (ref UK7088), Balmaha Apartment (ref UK7089), The Ben (ref UK7091) and The Lodge (ref UK7092) to accommodate up to 26 guests.

This area really does have the best of both worlds, an exciting vibrant city and some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery right on the door step. The city of Glasgow has a wonderful mix of architecture; Victorian red sandstone buildings, Italianate steeples and medieval spires, neo-gothic towers and modern contemporary design.

A growing number of visitors are discovering Glasgow's undoubted charms; the city has a vibrant nightlife, fabulous shopping centre and a first class selection of restaurants, cafes and modern bars. The arts scene here is thriving with over 200 arts organisations, including Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera being based in the city, additionally there are more than twenty museums and galleries, many of which are free, including the unique Burrell Collection, the contemporary Gallery of Modern Art and Mackintosh House, which is a reconstruction of the work of Charles Renne Mackintosh, famous for his Art Nouveau `Glasgow Style' architecture and design.

Glasgow is surrounded by beautiful countryside, from the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley to the south to the superb walking country of East Dumbartonshire to the north of the city. East Dumbartonshire has a diverse and varied landscape that's ideal for cyclists and walkers; serious walkers will know that the West Highland Way starts here in Milngavie, extending some 95 miles north to Fort William and Ben Nevis via Crainlarich. But for more leisurely walks Mugdock Country Park, set around a stunning loch, offers 750 acres of lovely countryside on the outskirts of Milngavie. A short drive north of the River Clyde takes you to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.

South Lanarkshire stretches from the city suburbs south to open moorland along the lush Clyde Valley. The Clyde Valley Tourist Route makes its picturesque way to the upper reaches of the River Clyde and the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village first built by the famous social reformer Robert Owen. Visitors can use the interactive displays at the award-winning visitor centre and go on rides which bring history back to life.
