The scenery will bring you here and the hospitality of Rowan House will make you want to stay here

Rowan House is located in Carrick Castle, Lochgoilhead, a small village on the shores of Loch Goil, situated in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Although it feels like you are in another world, Glasgow International Airport is only 80 minutes away and Edinburgh about 2.5 hours. Whether you are looking for a weekend away or exploring Scotland, Rowan House is the perfect place for you to relax and unwind.

Choose between a self-catering apartment and bed & breakfast.  

 

ROWAN COTTAGE (self-catering)

BED & BREAKFAST

There are three bed & breakfast rooms in the main house: two double rooms with the beautiful loch views (one ensuite and one with private bathroom) and on the ground floor, a twin room with ensuite. Find out more about our bed & breakfast bedrooms here.

Rowan House is the perfect place to relax, unwind and recharge - whatever that means for you. There are plenty of walks for all levels including along the loch, up the hills and through ancient woodland - and you can rest and reflect with a cup of tea by the water’s edge. You can also take advantage of the loch with motorboats to hire for cruising or fishing, and kayaks, canoes and paddle-boards.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rowan House.
