Balquhidder Braes Holiday Park is a small and friendly family-run holiday park with luxury log cabins, many with hot tubs and mountain views.
Ideally situated next to Queen Elizabeth Forest, the park is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in historic Perthshire within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Here there is a wonderful array of wildlife, flora and fauna to be seen, including red squirrels, otters, deer, osprey and the beauty of wild orchids.
The park offers a choice of luxury, hillside self-catering log cabins, as well as touring caravan spaces and static caravan pitches. Conveniently located in the centre of Scotland on the main route to the North and West of the Scottish Highlands, the park is right at the heart of Rob Roy country.
Amidst the scenic splendour of the towering Scots pines, heather-clad mountains, lochs and glens of West Perthshire, the log cabins feature large patio doors leading to wrap-around balconies to make the most of the magnificent views across the “Braes ‘O’ Balquhidder”.
This is an area steeped in history and famous as the dramatic landscape Rob Roy could not resist. Sir Walter Scott, also a frequent visitor to Perthshire, wrote,
‘These beautiful and wild regions, comprehending so many lakes, rocks, sequested valleys, and dim copsewoods, are not quite abandoned by the fairies who have resolutely maintained secure footing in a region so well suited for their residence.’
The perfect base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands and enjoy some of the finest hillwalking routes that start right on the doorstep or the Rob Roy walking trail/ cycle Route 7 alongside.
