    An ideal getaway. Good location for getting to North South East or West. Friendly, helpful owner.

    The Smiddy is a very comfortable and well located base for touring and walking in the Trossachs. The wood burning stove makes the cottage very cosy. We will return.

    loved staying here, the cottage was a lovely quirky place. Not too far away from everything you need to have a adventurous holiday. We walked the Glen Ogle pass, hired kayaks and bikes to see the beautiful hills and Lochs.
