This cottage is located in an idyllic location. Adjoining a loch and beautiful walks in the Colzium Lennox Estate or a 20minute gentle stroll to the village with its shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes.Also in a great position for visiting Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh and Falkirk. The owner Mark was extremely helpful and great communication. The cottage is warm, very spacious and comfortable and kitted out with everything and more that required to live, cook & eat for our large family group of 4 generations. Would highly recommend.

House really is beautiful and in a lovely location. Cozy, clean and has everything you could need for your stay. Dogs loved the walks and we played many games with the kids round the kitchen table. The football table was well used and provided lots of fun, my other half loved it, as it took him back to his younger years when he had a smaller version lol Colzium estate is lovely too, and the kids loved the play park. Only thing that would make it absolutely perfect for us would be if the garden was fully secured by fencing and a gate at the entrance. Mark really was accommodating with our requests and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for letting us book your lovely house. We hope to visit again some day in the not too distant future πŸ™‚

What a fantastic house to stay in whilst holidaying in Scotland. Mark was brilliant as our host, nothing was too much trouble. In this difficult time, you are always a bit concerned about visiting anywhere, but, everything was in place for us to have a safe holiday. The house is extremely suitable if you have dogs, as the garden is ideal, the only thing I would recommend is making the garden secure, perhaps a gate a the front. The house is so near to many attractions, Glasgow, Edinburgh, the kelpies, we really had a relaxing, enjoyable time. Once again Mark, many thanks.

10 of us and a dog. Age range was 5 years to 82 years. Great house for the whole family. Perfect location for getting to everywhere we wanted to see. Wouldn't hesitate to book again. Mark couldn't have been more helpful when booking and during our stay.

My family and I had an amazing holiday at this house. The house had everything we needed and was extremely well equipped. Lots of room for all of us, and we had great fun in the very large and private garden. Would definitely recommend this house for family holidays.

This property is lovely. Spacious both inside and outside, ample parking and a secure garden for the dog. Lovely little walks around the Loch and Colzium gardens. It was the perfect escape for us. 5 stars. I would 100% return to this property for another U.K break.

The cottage is beautiful, spacious and equipped with everything you could possibly wish for. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, dishes, plates, glasses and mugs, a coffee maker also. The beds are very comfortable and there is a tv in every room. The Welsh dresser in the kitchen is full of family board games. The location is spot on with a fantastic play park 5 minutes walk away. The grounds of the cottage are vast and safe for children to burn off energy. We have enjoyed our week so much, we have booked to return at the same time next year. The outside decking area is a lovely place to sit to have morning coffee and an evening drink. We could not have asked for more.

Our family found this absolute gem during lockdown, which was a permitted stay due to a complex house move going a bit wrong. We are four adults and a dog and we disappeared into the plentiful accommodation - the dog has the run of downstairs and a huge garden which he loved. The kitchen has space for a large gathering in normal times but we enjoyed all the space and equipment just for four of us, creating spectacular meals as everything you can think of is provided in terms of kit. The views are lovely, showers are brilliant, the quality of everything is great, and doorstep walks and the loch are a massive bonus. The location is a great jumping off point to endless locations, and there is space for family reunions. I can think of multiple reasons to return, even though it’s pretty close to where we live. I remain delighted we found the cottage and we were very well looked after by Mark the owner, who was a joy to deal with. Thanks again Mark

This was our second time in Lochend Cottage and we cannot rate this rental highly enough, Mark is excellent to deal with and the house has everything you need from quality of the house itself to the location near to major motorways and shopping. We look forward to our next visit as we would not consider any other rental in this area of Scotland.

Loch End Cottage is a real home from home. The property was spotlessly clean on our arrival and we were pleasantly surprised by how well equipped the house was. The kitchen is a great space with plenty of crockery, pots and pans if you choose to eat in. There is a huge dining table which we spent plenty of time around not just eating, but playing board games or just chatting. The bedrooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Although we didn't need it, we did notice that the downstairs bedroom was accessible for wheelchairs with an en suite wet room. The bathrooms were lovely and clean with plenty of hot water. The lounge area is comfortable with plenty of seating and the table football was well used during our stay. The outside space is amazing with plenty of room for the kids to burn off some steam and there is a beautiful loch within a five minute walk. There is also a great playground close by and some lovely walks around the Colzium estate. If you want to go further afield, the house is very centrally located, close the motorway and there is a train station within a few minutes drive that we used to take a day trip to Edinburgh. There are also lots of other attractions all within a 30 minute drive so we found plenty to do in the local area. Communication with the owner was great and we hope to return one day!
