Guest book

We've fallen in love with this incredible homestay for six, effortlessly combining top-notch luxurious living with the wild, rugged and untamed beauty of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Three gorgeous bedrooms, exquisite views and fabulous living space await at Sorcha, whilst outside there's a private terrace, private hot tub, shared gardens and even a yacht and jet skis for hire. With jaw-dropping views over the marina and out over the Loch, this is a wonderful residence where every luxury has been considered from underfloor heating throughout to boutique hotel standard bedrooms, each equipped with a television and mini bar. Set on the shores of Loch Lomond, this truly is a remarkable setting, and if you can bare to tear yourself away, there's plenty to explore in the area with the Trossachs National Park as your playground. It doesn't get any better than this!

Larger parties

Sorcha is close to Alpin which also sleeps six, so if you're a group of friends, a larger family or two families traveling together, these can be booked together to sleep twelve in total.


The fabulous, chic sitting room has blissful views over the marina out over the Loch and benefits from a cosy semi-circular sofa, perfect for coming together to sit and chat, play games, or catch up on your favourite film or series. You’ll find four Samsung Smart TV’s in Sorcha, each with a selection of Sky TV channels and movies on demand (charges apply). In addition, there's a LG Bluetooth speaker in the lounge and all bedrooms to create the soundtrack to your holiday.


The delightful Poggenpohl kitchen, in grey and white tones, comes complete with everything you could possibly need to rustle up feasts. Fully equipped with Siemens appliances to make meal times run smoothly, it's also home to some luxurious extras such as a bean to cup coffee machine, meaning you'll have everything to hand during your stay.

The fabulous dining area lies to one side of the kitchen and has a spacious table, perfect for celebratory dinner parties and laid-back breakfasts alike. We just love the Tom Raffield Skipper Pendant ceiling light overhead.


There are three stunning bedrooms to choose from, each swathed in bedding from the Mascioni hotel collection. A perfect escape at the end of the day, whether you've been exploring the mountains and Loch, or simply relaxing by the water's edge. Beautifully styled and oh-so-cosy, they're a delight to retreat to, guaranteeing a blissful night's sleep and long lie ins.

On the ground floor is a delightful twin room, perfect for little ones or friends staying together.

Take the stairs to the first floor and you'll discover two further bedrooms. One boasts an oh-so comfy super king bed with gorgeous private balcony - the perfect spot for coffee with a view. Bedroom three holds the sumptuous double bed. Both have tall, vaulted ceilings making them airily wonderful.

Incredibly well equipped, each bedroom has a Samsung Smart TV with a selection of Sky channels, a safe and a wellstocked automatic minibar, along with a phone in all rooms should you wish to reach the duty manager on site.


There are two wet rooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. Both wet rooms feature Temple Spa products and a Toto washlet in the downstairs wet room, which combines wellness, cleanliness and sustainability and Hansgrohe rainfall drench showers as well as underfloor heating.
