Local information

  • Aber Cottage is situated in one of West Dunbartonshire's prettiest villages and is within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park which encompasses an area of 720 square miles.
  • Some of Britain's most spectacular scenery is around the Loch Lomond area. The loch is actually crossed by the Highland boundary fault and the physical characteristics of lowland and highland Scotland can be seen within a few miles of each other.
  • The property lies to the north of Gartocharn, a delightful conservation village with its own primary school, hotel with restaurant, post office and shop. The property is also located adjacent to Ross Priory, its restaurant, bar and golf course, and is only a few minutes' walk from a sandy beach on the shores of Loch Lomond and Endrick Nature Reserve. Although many of its residents commute to Glasgow, Gartocharn has a real community feel.
  • Glasgow Airport (19 miles) can be accessed via the A82 (M8) or A809 and can be reached by car, under normal driving conditions, in around 30 minutes. Balloch Station (4.5 miles) provides a regular rail service to central Glasgow, with a similar journey time. Glasgow is recognised as one of the UK's finest cities with a thriving central business district and its high street and designer shopping now rank second only to London. There are a number of acclaimed private schools within the city boundary, including Glasgow High School, Glasgow Academy, Kelvinside Academy and St Aloysius College.
  • Closer by is Lomond School in Helensburgh (12 miles) which provides private schooling for both day pupils and boarders.
  • For sports enthusiasts the great outdoors awaits. There is superb hill walking and climbing in the area. The Arrochar Alps include four Munros (mountains over 3000 ft) and six Corbetts (between 2500 and 3000 ft), the best known of which is The Cobbler. The loch is well known for its fishing, marinas and water sports including wind surfing, sailing and excellent water skiing and wake boarding.
  • There are a number of well-respected golf courses in the area including Loch Lomond Golf Course which has hosted the Scottish Open and other international events. Other golf courses include Buchanan Castle, Hilton Park and Milngavie.
