Welcome to the Highlands
Welcome to Balquhidder Braes Holidays Park’s website. We are a small family run holiday park in the heart of Scotland and next to the Queen Elizabeth Forest offering luxury quality self catering log cabins set up on the hillside.
Wonderfully situated in the centre of Scotland, one mile north of Strathyre and one mile south of Loch Earn in the Gateway to the Highlands, and in the heart of Rob Roy country. We are privileged to be within the ‘5 Lochs’ areas of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park – an area of outstanding natural beauty in historic Perthshire. We have many species of flora and fauna on and around our site including red squirrels, deer, otters, osprey and wild orchids.
The dramatic landscape within this area of Scotland makes this area perfect for a break at any time of year, and increasingly customers are opting for a peaceful Autumn or Winter break. The area is steeped in history and myth. Rob Roy could not resist the area of Balquhidder and kept returning to it and finally made the area his final resting place. And Sir Walter Scott – a frequent visitor to Perthshire – wrote the following:
“These beautiful and wild regions, comprehending so many lakes, rocks, sequested valleys, and dim copsewoods, are not quite abandoned by the fairies,who have resolutely maintained secure footing in a region so well suited for their residence.”
Centrally located for Touring and sightseeing between Callander and Killin, we are only 80 minutes from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth. We provide a great base for those wanting to walk the many local Munros including Ben Vorlich and Stuc a Chrion. Golf, walking, water-sports, fishing and cycling are all available on our doorstep, as well as many of Scotlands top tourist attractions. After touring around Scotland many visitors regularly comment that this is probably the most scenic part. Rich in history and plenty things to do you you do not have to travel far to experience Scotland at it’s best.
|The staff were: friendly, approachable, helpful and informative. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and luxurious, with stunning views from the hot tub!|
|A fantastic location for walkers and runners. I would highly recommend The Falls of Dockart public house and restaurant, a 15 min drive from the site.|
