Perfect as a romantic hideaway, Puidrac Cottage is a traditional, detached, stone-built home in the heart of the Trossachs National Park.
Guests arrive to a welcome pack which includes a bottle of wine and fresh eggs laid by the owner’s hen. The cottage is tucked away in the owner’s grounds but remains private, with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. It has been renovated to a very good standard and transformed into a holiday cottage to provide a bright and contemporary living space.
Guests will find the open plan living area has a well-equipped kitchen with a range cooker and good quality appliances which are perfect for practising your cooking skills. The living area has a cosy wood burner where you can curl up and relax on cooler evenings and French doors leading onto the south-facing patio with uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and Ben Vorlich, where you can enjoy al fresco dining or watch the stars at night.
There are two bedrooms: a charming double bedroom, which has a glazed door leading onto the patio, and a further bedroom with a bunk bed suitable for adults or children, as well as a family bathroom.
The entrance to the cottage is by a sun porch which is the ideal place to leave your walking boots and outdoor gear.
Guests have access to the owner’s grounds which lead down to the River Balvaig with private fishing in season by prior arrangement.
Situated in the village of Balquhidder and nestled between the mountains at the head of Loch Voil, this is an ideal location for outdoor activities, hill walking surrounded by breathtaking scenery, mountain biking along lovely forest trails, golf, fishing, land rover and canoe safaris and various water sports are all available. This area is steeped in history and folklore and the cottage is named after a Neolithic stone in the grounds with a fantastic tale. The famous outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor’s grave is in the grounds of Balquhidder Parish Church and there are many other historic and archaeological sites to visit.
While the location is rural, you are less than 2 miles from a gourmet restaurant and bar with a great selection of whiskies. The villages in the area hold frequent events including folk nights, food festivals, Highland games, cèilidhs and Balquidder village hall hosts a New Year’s Day cèilidh which is well attended by families in the area and beyond.
