The Nicolson family would like to welcome you to our charming country cottages, in the heart of Scotland, for a relaxing break away from it all.
Situated on the edge of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, in an area of outstanding beauty. Our properties are on a working farm where we keep some of our sheep and our suckler herd.
We are delighted to offer you a tour of our other farm, a dairy farm where you can see 450 cows being milked in a new dairy system as well as all the youngstock - get to meet our young calves!
The courtyard steading next to the farmhouse has been thoughtfully converted into 2 spacious, bright and comfortable cottages. We have retained the charm of the old stone buildings but introduced luxury to allow you to relax and enjoy your holiday. The houses have been tastefully furnished with a mix of classic and modern.
