Aros Beag, Tyndrum

Secluded position - Wi-Fi - Jacuzzi Bath - Sorry, no pets allowed

An ideal honeymoon tryst and perfect for exploring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

The owners of Aros Beag (little dwelling) have tastefully renovated this former Stable and Coach House into the perfect retreat for couples. They have tried to think of everything that you would hope for from a wee holiday cottage in the middle of the mountains.

Aros Beag is beautifully presented and includes a double bedroom with king-size bed, a living area with cathedral ceiling, a well equipped kitchen, and a luxurious bathroom complete with jacuzzi bath and bathrobes. Wi-Fi access, the House HiFi system, which allows for different music to be played in individual rooms, and the underfloor heating, contribute to making this wonderful holiday cottage an easy place to relax and enjoy what the region has to offer.

Entering the property via the entrance vestibule, to the right you will find the bathroom, straight ahead takes you into the open plan living/kitchen area and thereafter into the bedroom.

Aros Beag is very private, situated at the end of a lane and right beside the River Fillan. The holiday cottage has been finished and furnished to a very high standard and provides truly luxurious accommodation for couples. All the rooms are individually designed with care and attention to detail, often retaining original features. It has its own drive and car parking.

Tyndrum is the Northern gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park – making Aros Beag the ideal location for touring this delightful area. The park itself embraces the deep waters of Loch Lomond, the wild glens of the Trossachs, the high mountains of Breadalbane and the sheltered sea lochs of the Argyll forest.

Within an hour’s drive of Aros Beag there are many places to visit - you can travel through Glencoe with its awe-inspiring mountains and the wild Rannoch Moor, the Trossachs and Loch Katrine, Aberfeldy and Glen Lyon, Oban and the West Coast, Black Mount and Victoria Bridge, Glen Orchy, Loch Awe and Ben Cruachan, the list goes on.

The area is a Mecca for hill walkers and if you want to bag a Munro then you have plenty to choose from here, within a radius of 15 miles you have at least 30 Munros.

We stayed at Aros Beag which is a very cute cottage in the Scottish village of Tyndrum. We can't fault the cottage whatsoever - it is very warm and cosy and is very clean. The setting is idyllic as it is sat right next to a beautiful part of the forest and has a river running along side. Aros Beag is perfectly situated for hiking the mountains with some wonderful peaks very close to your doorstep. The cottage is also close to Glen Coe and the Loch Lomond area. We would certainly return if we get the opportunity in the near future.

An absolute gem of a cottage. Beautifully fitted out, warm and cosy and in a stunning setting. So many walks right from the front door, no need to use the car if you just want to chill. Also convenient if you do want to go further afield with many beautiful spots within an hours drive.

We had a great week in this cottage. Returned home well rested. The walks close to the cottage were fantastic. It is close to the A82 some have reviewed this as a problem. We found convenient. The cottage was well presented and spotless.

A warm, spacious, clean and comfortable cottage in a great location for many walks from the door. Some traffic noise from A82 if you sit outside. A great cottage but not quite so luxurious as their website suggests. We missed a basic welcome pack of milk, tea etc. Water pressure low so weak shower and long time needed to fill bath. Lovely in many ways and we had a really good holiday thank you.

A lovely, well-equipped and comfortable cottage for a (wet) week's hill walking in Scotland. Perfect for sitting out in those rainy days and welcoming to come back to after a day on the hills. The owners have added a lot of nice touches in the decor and furnishing to make it that little bit special and lift it above the level of purely functional self catering. The wifi worked well during my stay and the cafe next door is very good if you want a break from self-catering midday.

This is a lovely cottage situated right be the river and very quiet and private. The West Highland Way is literally 3 minutes walk away from your door and there are plenty of walks very nearby. Ideal location for visiting the surrounding areas. Ideally I would love a washing machine in the property but hey you can't have everything? the owners will do washing for you if needed. I would like to say for all the people who like their technology that there is Wi-fi but in this area it can be a little hit and miss. For us there had been very bad weather and the lightning had knocked it out but that was just nature doing it's thing! The owners are lovely and very helpful.

This is a fantastic place, quite, clean, cosy and very warm with the underfloor heating. A bird feeder in the garden attracting many birds and there are plenty of walks right from the cottage as well as places to visit a short drive away.

Aros Beag is a lovely little cottage, an old building very tastefully renovated. It may be a bit near the A82, but it still retains a feeling of peacefulness, tucked away by the river and surrounded by trees. Jim was very welcoming and helpful. His wife runs the cafe next door in the old church, offering delicious food if you don't want to cook yourself. All in all, we were very happy with our stay.

I booked this cottage for my wife's 40th birthday and boy did it delliver; a wonderful little cottage in a fantastic location. On arrival Diane was very helpful and explained everythng. The music system with the wi fi was very handy - we listened to music on the tablet as well as the radio. Had a lovely time overall and we even managed to visit Loch Ness and climb Ben Nevis. I would happily recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking to stay in Scotland.

Great cottage, well equipped, nicely decorated. Under floor heating a real luxury - fab in the bathroom in the mornings! The music system was also much appreciated - now thinking of installing something similar at home! Location was perfect for us, with plenty of hill walking options in the vicinity. Also saw oystercatchers on the river from the bedroom window.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful setting at the side of the river. Comfortable and surprisingly spacious with great features - especially liked the music system with speakers in the ceilings of each room. The owners are very warm and welcoming and supplied a welcome pack of goodies! Loads of great walks close by and Glencoe only half an hour in the car - I was never stuck for something to do. It chucked it down every day, but exploring the place was worth getting wet for. Thoroughly recommend it.

This is a wonderful cottage; the underfloor heating made it v. cosy & meant we didn't care about the wind/rain outside, the jacuzzi bath was a fab way to unwind after long hikes in the spectacular countryside on our doorstep, & the well-equipped kitchen was ideal. We enjoyed the sound-system when watching movies or listening to music, and this is a really nice touch. The owners made us (a same-sex couple) feel very welcome, though very much kept themselves to themselves. Thoroughly recommended.

Beautifully renovated cottage with all the modern amenities. Lovely riverside setting and convenient to a nearby village. The location was perfect for day trips to local sites and attractions. The Loch Etive cruise is worth doing. Diane's attention to detail is definitely noteworthy; she was there to greet us, show us around the cottage and answer any of our questions. Her "Welcome" gift basket was generous; she even included 2 eggs from the free-range chickens that occasionally wandered by!

Aros Beag was the perfect start to our 1st week of honeymoon - we don't think there could have been anywhere better in the world to be!

Just returned from a lovely week at Aros Beag. Cottage was lovely and very well equipped for every eventuality. Surrounding areas very picturesque with options for walking/hiking. Sadly the weather was pretty poor, so we didn't explore its full potential. The nearest village (Tyndrum) was a lot busier than we expected, and we had lovely fish and chips from The Real Food Cafe. Highly recommended and pretty reasonably priced. Only downside was the midges which feasted on me all week!
