About Ballat Smithy Cottage

anvil

Our Historic Building is Over 200 Years Old

This charming holiday cottage near Loch Lomond was created within the workshops of the late 18th Century Ballat Smithy. The building has stood the test of time for over 200 years, and its thick stone walls and sheeps’ wool insulation make sure the cottage is warm in winter and cool in summer. 

These same thick walls create a peaceful stillness inside which envelopes you the minute you close the door. One guest commented:  “The cottage puts its arms around you as soon as you walk in.” The Currie family came here in 1988. They have enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the world since 2004, and many have returned year after year to enjoy the perfect self-catering Loch Lomond holiday!

The perfect Scottish location for self-catering Loch Lomond holidays to remember for years to come.

‘In a good countryside location, near to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. Easy to access local attractions, outdoor pursuits and the city of Glasgow. Local shops a short drive. The cottage is delightful: clean, comfy and cosy and a pretty little garden area outside. It is well- equipped with everything you need’
