Enjoying a fantastic setting on the scenic southern shore of Loch Lomond is Claddochside, a spacious holiday home tucked away within 60 acres of picturesque farmland in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, near Drymen (5 miles).

The interior has been laid out open plan with distinctive areas for gathering around the wood-burning stove, whipping up delicious meals and savouring them at the lovely dining area with its large windows that frame the picturesque view out. Next to the dining table doors lead out to a pretty patio seating area.

From the living area an open staircase leads upstairs where the double and two twin bedrooms are bright and inviting with comfy beds and great views out towards Ben Arthur and Ben Lomond.

Doors from the sitting room lead through to a charming little separate wing that is set out downstairs with its own lounge and basic kitchen, as well as a bathroom and bedroom where the beds can be either super king-size or twin as required. As it also has its own separate entrance, it is the perfect place for relatives to holiday together with everyone whilst still having some peace and quiet to escape to.

Surrounding the house is an enclosed garden and three different sun terraces that all have garden seating for enjoying the view of the loch and gorgeous sunsets as the sun dips below the mountains.

It is just a short walk (approximately 140 metres) to the private sandy bay right on the loch shore for paddling or admiring the ever-changing scene out on the water. Access to the shore is via fields, over a stile and down some steps so it may not be suitable for those with mobility issues, although there is a core path that leads right down to a public beach area. Wildlife often visit the shoreline with pine martens, otters and even majestic ospreys regularly being spotted.

Guests will be delighted by the range of enticing activities awaiting them just steps away. Claddochside is in the heart of the action, on the banks of the stunning Loch Lomond.

If you are looking for a faster pace, you can take a boat tour of the loch, provided by ‘Speedboat Tours’ at Portnellan Farm.

Nearby Drymen (5 miles) is home to a variety of shops, pubs and dining options such as the Clachan Inn, and 3 miles beyond Drymen, Killearn has much to offer such as The Old Mill pub, cafe and shop which has been featured in ‘Scotland the Best’.

5 miles to the south of Claddochside lies Balloch which includes a co-op store and train station.

Just beyond Balloch lies Cameron House, a 17th-century baronial mansion offering award-winning cuisine, a private cinema, championship golf course, and exclusive spa facilities.

In Balmaha further round the loch boat trips take visitors out to see the historic island of Incailloch, or hike up Conic Hill, a good, family friendly walk with stunning views. Top off a day of adventure with a hearty meal at the Oak Tree Inn.

Fans of the Outlander TV series can visit filming locations like the Devil’s Pulpit in the Finnich Glen. The red water of the Carnock Burn runs through this 100-foot-deep gorge and is quite a sight to behold.
