We have a fabulous location situated in the heart of Scotland in the beautiful Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park which covers 720 square miles of lowland landscapes, lochs and mountains.  Our Railway Cottage is located in the north eastern corner of the park, in the Southern Highlands and yet only 60 and 70 miles north of Glasgow and Edinburgh respectively.

    • The cottage is wonderfully secluded, accessible only via a private track that was formerly the Killin Junction to Killin branch railway line.  We have no neighbours!  Peace and quiet are guaranteed.  Children and dogs love the freedom, parents value the safety!  We have amazing walking trails and cycle tracks literally on our doorstep – no requirement to jump in the car to start your outing!
    • The closest community is at the idyllic village of Killin –  renowned for its Falls of Dochart – on the edge of Loch Tay and three miles away.  And a short drive away you have the choice of many spectacular low and high level walks overlooking some of Scotland’s finest lochs including the Ben Lawers range, Glen Ogle and Loch Voil.
    • Our central location means most of mainland Scotland can be reached within a few hours, providing opportunities for some great day trips.  Glencoe, Fort William and Oban can all be reached within 90 minutes.  Aviemore (Cairngorms National Park) and Glenfinnan (the ‘Harry Potter  viaduct’) are both a two hour drive from the cottage.

Finding us...driving the last mile.....

The short drive to the cottage from the A85 is a mini-adventure in itself.  Killin Junction was an interchange railway station where the main Callander to Oban trunk line connected with the wee branch line to Killin and Loch Tay.  There was no vehicle access to either the station or the adjacent cottages. Today the branch line is now a private forestry road and provides access to the cottage from the A85.  The mile long hardcore track can be a wee bit bumpy in places but just take your time, pick your line and enjoy the scenery!
The track has a few potholes and in wet weather can be a tad  muddy.  4WD vehicles are ideal but the average 2WD car will be able to negotiate the track.  Low suspension sports cars will struggle and risk damage to their undercarriage. Ferraris and Lamborghinis should stay at home!
