Lovely Cottage within easy reach of the cities

The Kist is an ideal way to get away from it all. It is set in 6.5 acres of garden and grounds and surrounded by fields. It is entirely self-contained and no-one will visit unless you invite them. Our house is 100m down the garden from The Kist. We work from home so will usually be around if you need us, but otherwise will leave you to enjoy your stay. It is 3.5 miles from the nearest village (Balfron).

The Kist - an historic term for a linen box or treasure chest - is a stunning contemporary lodge set in private grounds in a beautiful rural location. A large deck area and a panoramic window in the main room allow visitors to enjoy the country experience whatever the weather. You may well find deer grazing in the garden of a morning.

The Kist is a Great property . It has everything you will need and more. . The outdoor area was fantastic for us and we spent many an evening on the lovely decking area. A lovely and peaceful spot. Great for spotting animals and chilling. It is also a great location for travelling to locks or villages. Iona was great , sent e mail updates and was on hand if we had any questions. A lovely family and lovely property would highly recommend

Perfect location and a lovely property. We have had a great holiday at the Kist. Exploring the area through the day, returning to the Kist on an evening, relaxing with a glass of wine and a BBQ on the veranda was the perfect end to day. The property is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The beds and pillows are very comfortable also, just what you need after a days hiking. The shower pressure is good and fed from a combi so no end of hot water. Dishwasher and washing machine were a welcomed bonus. Some areas of the property are starting to look tired and need some TLC, this didn’t bother us at all but may be an issue to others. All in all we had a fabulous stay and will likely return for another holiday in the near future.

We stayed in the Kist for four nights. It’s such a lovely place, plenty of room for us all (2 adults and 2 kids), gorgeous outdoor space for our girls to run around, and we even managed a bbq one evening. It’s a great location to explore Loch Lomond and the Tressachs and so much to see and do: we climbed Ben Lomond, went pony trekking, visited Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, had fun on the Tree zone at Loch Lomond, and lots more. We highly recommend the Kist, it has everything you need, very clean and comfortable, great base and a lovely escape.

We have had a wonderful week staying at The Kist. It is in a beautiful, peaceful part of Scotland and perfect for exploring the area. The cabin had everything we needed. Iona and Mark made sure we knew they were there if we needed anything, but were unobtrusive. We had a packed week exploring the Glasgow and Stirling area, and the Trossachs and Loch Lomond Park. There is so much to see and do in this area, which has a rich and fascinating history and gorgeous scenery.

We rented this property because it was 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom so no bathroom queuing. Also it was located in a nice rural area. The facilities in the Kist were good and although it had a TV, we never turned it on. Iona the Host, was on hand if needed, and any problems sorted quickly. The Kist has a well equipped kitchen, a BBQ on the decking and the beds very comfortable, with each having a good bath or shower. The garden and surrounding area is good for walks or biking and good views too.
