The estate of Mondhui is situated within the Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park. The Trossachs is Scotland's "Lake district". Mondhui itself has been a settlement since prehistoric times and above the property there are “cup and rings” markings. Within the grounds is a duck flighting pond which is ideal for bird watchers and beside the cottage there is a small pond. The area is a haven for birds and other wildlife including osprey, red kites, red squirrels, red deer, pine marten and badgers. From the door of the cottage you can walk directly up into the Menteith Hills and join the Rob Roy Way with hundreds of miles of forest track easily accessible. The cottage is furnished in a contemporary, country style with handmade wooden kitchen units, granite worktops and solid oak flooring throughout.
It is in the perfect setting for those who love outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, golf, pony trekking and fishing - the Lake of Menteith is Scotland’s premier trout fishing venue. It is also a great location for those simply wanting to chill out and enjoy the fabulous view of the lake from the covered porch, courtyard or from the comfy couch in front of the wood burner. Nick Nairn’s famous Cook School is only a few minutes drive away as is the popular Lake Hotel which serves good food at the lakeside. This is an ideal location from which to explore one of Scotland’s most picturesque areas or to use as a base to tour central Scotland. Within 10 minutes from the cottage you can be in Aberfoyle, Callander, the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park at the David Marshall Lodge or taking a sail on the Sir Walter Scott steamship on Loch Katrine.
Stirling with its ancient castle is twenty minutes away. Scenic Loch Lomond, is only half an hour from the cottage. Gleneagles is 40 minutes drive. The cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is less than an hour’s drive with Perth and Edinburgh just over an hour away. There are many historic buildings, castles and distilleries to visit in the area.

I am an Advocate (Scottish barrister) and am passionate about justice. I have also set up a tourism business with two holiday cottages in the grounds of my home which is a small private Estate of 40 acres in the Trossachs with beautiful views of the Lake of Menteith. I work hard and love to travel in my free time. I have travelled all over the world and am very discerning and love to find quality at a reasonable price! I have an apartment in Cannes in the south of France but my favourite winter destination is Barbados which I have been visiting for over 30 years. As a host I want to provide the quality of accommodation I would be delighted to stay in myself. My style is modern country style and any visitors will find a warm welcome, beautiful views and comfortable accommodation. We have an agreement with a local hotel and spa ten minutes drive away that guests can use their facilities including swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, gym, squash courts and snooker table. We also are able to offer our guests a 10% discount on food and drink at the fabulous Lake Hotel at Port of Menteith.
