100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Achray Farm is a working smallholding (and ice-creamery) in the Trossachs, between Callander and Aberfoyle.

In 2018 the Old Farmhouse was renovated to create bright, spacious accommodation whist retaining original features, along with a wood burning stove complimented by central biomass heating. Unlimited broadband finally arrived in late 2019.

Our location is the perfect start for walking, cycling and touring the area right from the door and walking distance from the local pub.

The space
Pending Scottish Government guidelines, the Old Farmhouse will be open for single households (and bubbles) for Christmas or Hogmanay 2020.

We occupy an idyllic location within the National Park. The farm is on the Great Trossachs Path a two minute walk to the stunning Loch Achray and a few hundred meters (in the opposite direction) to the inn serving food.

When staying on our smallholding you will be part of the farm for your stay. You would be welcome to join us for a walk down to the Loch with the goats.

As well as biomass heating and hot water, we run solar PV for electricity topped up by a renewable energy tariff. The third bedroom can be configured as two single beds or as a double room. Broadband arrived in the village in late 2019 and is available at Achray Farm via the unlimited guest Wi-Fi!

The farm is a developing modern smallholding with regenerative principles, we have an open gate policy and welcome the opportunity to explain our plans for development. In 2020 we launched our artisan ice-cream, with seasonal flavours from local forage and fruits.

We love to welcome people to our smallholding and sharing what is special about it and its amazing location in the National Park. My partner Crispin and I moved here in 2016. Since then it has been a process of repair, renovation and planting. Along with a steep learning curve about goats! We now have a commercial kitchen for making our own ice cream flavoured with fresh, local ingredients. Crispin is a keen mountain biker and will happy share local route knowledge or rent you out one of his fat bikes.
