Description of Benvane Cottage

A stunning location surrounded by woodland and mountains in the heart of Rob Roy Country in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. An ideal location for walkers and cyclists or just chilling out to watch the Red Sqirrels, Jays and Great Spotted Woodpeckers that are frequent garden visitors. Benvane offers the seclusion of its location in a small & friendly community at the edge of the Strathyre Forest with the convenience of being just a few minutes by car or an easy half mile walk from Strathyre village with its 3 family friendly pubs and 2 shops. Benvane is a cedar, shingle roofed semi-detached character cottage that has been extensively refurbished whilst retaining considerable charm. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard including a comprehensive OS Map and Walk/Cycle Route library and visitor guides to help you get the best out of your stay. A cosy and comfortable retreat even on the chilliest days, Benvane has superb central heating; wood burning stove and large utility/boot room ideal for those who love being out in all seasons! In spring and summer, the large enclosed garden makes an ideal retreat with it's private seating and BBQ area. The cottage enjoys an extremely peaceful location with wonderful open views and is immediately adjacent to a lovely mature beech wood knoll which offers direct access to Sustrans Cycle Route 7/ The Rob Roy Way. Located off the forest access road at the end of a private track, well away from a public road, Benvane is close to Loch Lubnaig (great for canoeing) and the River Balvaig (excellent fishing) and offers miles of woodland, hill and lochside walks and cycles routes from it's doorstep. Benvane Cottage offers generous accomodation for up to 6 adults consisting of two upstairs bedrooms (one King sized and one twin with 4' double and single bed) and one downstairs double bedroom.

Strathyre is the perfect base to explore and enjoy the whole of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, an area renowned for its awe inspiring beauty, variety of wildlife and extensive array of outdoor activities including wildlife watching, fishing, watersports, cycling, walking and hill climbing, golf and pony trekking. The area is rich in culture, clan history and folklore and there are many excellent nearby pubs and restaurants to enjoy, specialising in local produce and often with live music. Further afield but all within easy reach you'll find Lochaber with Glencoe only 1 hour away or the West Coast and Oban only 1.5 hours distant.
