More information about Balquidder

  • The house sleeps 8 with 2 double and 2 king sized zip and link beds in 4 bedrooms, allowing various combinations.
  • Up to 5 well behaved dogs are welcome at £20 per dog per week/stay. The garden is enclosed but not secure. 
  • Outside the kitchen is a sheltered area with BBQ, picnic bench and benches ideal for “alfresco” eating when the Scottish weather holds.
  • We have a travel cot, high chair, a couple of baby gates and a bed rail. Also children’s plates/cutlery and a baby bath for use by families.
  • You can’t fix a baby gate to the top of the stairs due to the age and design of the stairs but there is a door at the bottom.
  • Children are very welcome (we have an 9 year old who loves the freedom) but please bear in mind if you decide to book, that the garden isn’t secure with the Gare Loch directly over the road, there’s a stream as a boundary and steep banks.
  • The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, washing up liquid, dish washing tablets, washing powder, kitchen towel, bin bags.
  • We leave plenty of logs plus fire lighters and kindling.
  • We leave some charcoal but if you’ll use a lot, bring some with you.

The boring but important stuff:

  • The drive is very steep up to the house.  There is plenty of room to park and space to turn on the flat section which is approximately 10 metres from the house.
  • There are steps up to the front door.
  • The garden is enclosed but not secure.
  • There is a stream at the rear of the garden that is our boundary. It is not fenced off.
  • We accept 5 dogs at £20 per dog per stay.  More by negotiation.
