About Ballat Smithy Cottage
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.

‘This is a lovely cottage, more than ample space for 4 people and everything has been thought of, even a candle for a birthday cake and matches! There are a few quirks to the cottage and Anne explains them on arrival. The property is in an ideal location for exploring the Loch Lomond area and beyond. We had wonderful days out in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park including the Three Lochs Forest Drive and The Lodge. We took a trip from Balloch to Luss on the boat and Luss is a beautiful village. We spent one day at Falkirk and the fabulous Falkirk Wheel and a visit to the Kelpies.
Anne is a wonderful host and full of local information and giving advice on where to go. We didn’t have time to do all her suggestions but we did go up to Inversnaid and saw 8 eagles – perfect timing on our part.
If we get to holiday in this area again we would certainly stay here again’
