Ballat Smithy Cottage has a wonderful host in Anne, who is so welcoming and helpful. The cottage itself is very well equipped so all you have to do is arrive and start your holiday! The welcome food package is a lovely addition and helps you to settle in straight away. The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and the nearby cities and it is such a lovely part of the country that you will not want to leave! We would not hesitate in staying here again.

A shining example of how accommodation should be in this area. Very clean and tidy, good location with off road parking. Feels like you are the first person to stay, no signs of previous occupation as in so many similar places

Very conveniently placed for a wide range of visits. We went to the Hill House, the Burrell Collection, Done Castle, Inverary, and various Lochs. The Toy Museum at Callander was very good and the Falls at Dochart are much more impressive in the flesh than they look in pictures.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Ballat Smithy Cottage. I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay, however I'm concerned to see that you considered the category for Service/Staff to be less than perfect. I am soley responsible for all aspects of operating the cottage including making sure guests are welcomed personally and being on site in case of any queries. It would be very helpful to know which aspects of my communication, welcome and other interactions you felt could be improved on.
