Our home is a 5 minute walk from the train station and main centre & a 10 minute drive from Loch Lomond.Our beautiful house has a wealth of period features, 4 bedrooms(master with 4-pc en-suite,1 with 2-pc e.s.), 4 public rooms, dining kitchen with gas-fired Aga and an established south-facing garden which is escape-proof for pets and small children, but please note we do have a small pond. Our garden also has a stone patio reached from french doors, & a wooden playframe for younger children. There is a 3-car gated driveway. We have 3 Silkie chickens who are very friendly and funny! We can arrange to have them looked after by friends if swappers are unable to help with their care.
