About Tom na Voil
Tom na Voil sits at the foot of Kirkton Glen, a very comfortable cottage on the Carnegie Estate in Balquhidder. The accommodation has been extended and is on two levels connected by 3 very shallow steps. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the house will comfortably accommodate 6 people.
The location is extremely peaceful and a particular feature is the lack of any light pollution at night, giving amazing starry skies.
Tom na Voil is surrounded by beautiful landscape in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. There is a wealth of wild flowers, including wild orchids and alpine Lady’s mantle.
Parking is available directly outside the cottage. There is a gravel area outside and access to the cottage is down a short flight of stone steps. Inside the property there are three low stairs.
The living room has leather sofas, TV/DVD player and wood burning stove. WiFi is available in the property. The owners have made available a collection of games and puzzles as well as a selection of fiction and non-fiction books, including books on Scotland and wildlife.
The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with fridge freezer, cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a comfortable table with a bench and chairs.
The master bedroom has a superking bed and luxury en-suite bathroom with walk in shower and oversized bath. The second bedroom with superking bed is also en-suite and has a bath with shower over, and there is a family bathroom with bath and shower over. The third bedroom has twin three-foot beds. All three bedrooms are furnished with oak chests and wardrobes.
Balquhidder lies on the No.7 cycle path and is surrounded by magnificent countryside. As well as gentle walks nearby, it is also close to several Munros – including Ben More, Ben Vorlich and Ben Lawers – offering exceptional hill-walking on the doorstep. From the house, you can see red squirrels, tree creepers and deer. Fishing is available locally in Loch Voil and the River Balvaig and bikes can be hired in, Callander or Killin.

“My husband and I have just stayed at Tom na Voil cottage for 2 weeks. The cottage inside was very clean and tidy, the outside doesn’t quite reflect the same standards but that didn’t affect our holiday at all. The rooms are all very good sizes, the beds very comfortable, the bed linen & towels are really good quality and the cottage was very well equipped. The welcome pack was also generous and much appreciated. We booked the cottage for the quiet location and it did not disappoint. The direct neighbours’ property is very close but we still enjoyed our space in this very peaceful location. In fact the neighbours actually offered us some advice on walks in the area and also loaned us a compass, as we’d left ours at home, so that was very helpful. The drying room is excellent for getting wet clothing and boots dry overnight. A real bonus for us. If you want a holiday in a secluded peaceful location, within easy driving distance to Callander, Aberfoyle & Killin, then this is the place for you. Definitely recommended.”
