Accommodation

Stronend Cottage is situated on the south east margin of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park - a region of outstanding natural beauty. Recently built, the cottage has been designed to take advantage of modern eco-friendly materials and the building incorporates many of the traditional features found in local dwellings that have stood for generations.

The accommodation includes -

  • a large master bedroom with a double bed plus two twin bedrooms
  • a large open plan dining/lounge area situated at the west end of the cottage with superb panoramic views of the surrounding hills and spectacular sunsets
  • a WC and shower on the ground floor, and upstairs bathroom with a full-size bath
  • a spacious open-plan kitchen, equipped with a ceramic hob, matching oven, fridge/freezer, microwave oven plus a dishwasher and an automatic washing machine.

All the lighting, entertainment, cooking and washing appliances are powered by electricity. Electricity costs are included in the rental.* Wi-fi internet is available by arrangement.

The cottage is heated by an oil-fired condensing boiler and underfloor heating on the ground floor, and radiators have been installed in every room and communal space. Hot water is also supplied via the boiler. Heating costs are also included in the rental.*

The water supply for Stronend originates in Loch Carron, just 5 miles away in the hills to the south of the cottage. The water is natural and pure - straight from the tap - and, (in our opinion), tastes better than most of the commercial bottled mineral waters.

Due to the remote location of Stronend, connection to a municipal waste system is not possible. Instead, Stronend utilises a special waste management system that relies on bacteria to break down waste matter in an efficient and eco-friendly way.

*Electricity and Oil usage is metered. A nominal value is included in the rental price. Additional usage (usually during the colder months) will be charged as an extra cost to the standard rental price. Please enquire for further details.
