Achray Farm is a working smallholding / goat farm and ice-cream maker in the Trossachs. We have holiday lets in The Cake House (an old name for an animal feed store) and The Old Farmhouse (sleeps 6).

The Cake House was renovated to create bright, spacious, accommodation whist retaining original features, along with a wood burning stove complimented by central biomass heating.

The perfect location for hiking, cycling & touring the area from the door and an easy walk to local pub or tearoom.

The space
We occupy an idyllic location within the National Park between Callander and Aberfoyle. The farm is on the Great Trossachs Path a 5-minute walk to Loch Achray and a few hundred meters (in the opposite direction) to the Byre Inn and a few minutes more to the Brig o' Turk Tea Room.

Achray Farm is a working smallholding growing our own flavours for summer artisan ice-cream made from our own goats milk, with our micro-dairy and ice-creamery, plus sorbets. Only sold direct, here on the farm.

There is a woodburning stove in the Living room and wonderful views from the property. A modern, open-plan kitchen/living/dining area with bifold doors to the garden was added.

The building has been designed with sustainability and aesthetic in mind. Internal features include natural cork flooring in the hallway, heavy reclaimed timber doors, tough bamboo flooring in the bedrooms and reclaimed wooded shutters. Natural environmentally friendly paint has been used throughout.

As well as biomass heating and hot water, we run solar PV for electricity topped up by a renewable energy tariff. The second bedroom can be configured as two single beds or as a "zip and link" Kingsized. Broadband is available at Achray Farm via the unlimited guest Wi-Fi.

In 2020 we launched our ice-cream, from our own goat's milk with seasonal flavours from local forage and fruits. We sell this during the summer from a converted vintage horse trailer to walkers and cyclists on the track that passes through the farm.

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.
