  • About

Sitting in an idyllic position at the head of Glen Fruin, in the Loch Lomond National Park, Strone Cottage is an authentic, 16th-century, detached stone cottage, featuring open beams, exposed original stonework and wood floors. The recent addition of a conservatory on one side of the cottage allows you to sit outside in the attractive garden, well protected in all weathers.

Here you can experience a real sense of history amongst the echoes of the past (the cottage and neighbouring farmhouse were at the centre of a major battle in 1603, when the feuding clans of the MacGregors and the Colquhouns clashed) whilst still enjoying all modern comforts and conveniences. Strone Cottage is surrounded by a secluded attractive gardens, scattered with fruit trees, where peacocks, ducks, and hens roam freely, who’s for free range eggs for breakfast?
