Sustainable holidays at Ballat Smith Cottage
At Ballat Smithy Cottage we are privileged to live surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the World; we aim to provide you with the most comfortable accommodation possible while striving to minimise the impact of our presence on the environment.
So by offering as environmentally-friendly sustainable holidays as possible, our guests can be sure that they are not having a negative impact on the beautiful surroundings of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
The cottage has stood here for over two hundred years, and will hopefully still be here in another two hundred years. To this end, as many environmentally-friendly policies as possible have been put in place. For example, the walls have been insulated with sheep wool from Cumbria. This ensures the cottage remains hot during the winter, reducing the need to have the heating on. It also keeps the cottage nice and cool in the summer, making it a comfortable stay any time of the year.

A message from owner Anne Currie:
“Ballat Smithy Cottage is nestled within the beautiful Scottish landscape near Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The environment is part of who we are and is the reason people from all over the world visit us, again and again, each year. Keeping the air and water clean is only part of our responsibility. Scottish wildlife is beautiful and can be dramatic – but if climate change continues, who knows what will come of it?
We are doing everything we can to help our guests stay as carbon neutral and environmentally friendly as possible. As more people take up UK ‘staycations’, we want to make sure their environmental footprint is small, whilst continuing to offer a memorable and comfortable self-catering stay here near Loch Lomond.”

‘Just returned home from a lovely week staying in Ballat Smithy Cottage. Very good value for money . We found the cottage very comfortable and were surprised at all the little extras :- eg welcome food pack, wifi, DVDs and books, charger adapter plug, vanity unit in the main bedroom., washing machine and detergent..
We found the beds very comfortable, the bathroom very clean and instant hot water whenever we wanted it.
The cottage is situated in an ideal position for exploring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs and also in easy reach for Stirling, Glasgow and the Highlands. We enjoyed exploring the little villages nearby and recommend Drymen for eating out.’
