Anne and Bobby welcome you to their Loch Lomondside farm which nestles on the slopes of a peaceful glen on the west side of Loch Lomond, Scotland. Shantron Farm Bed and Breakfastoverlooks the Island of Inchmurrin and have stunning panoramic views of Loch Lomond.
For your next farmstay in Scotland, sit and relax in the spacious garden and enjoy our long summer evenings watching the world go by as the setting sun reflects on the hills beyond. You can explore the different walking areas on the farm – a short walk to the tip of Shantron Hill, a gentle stroll up the Glen Road to the Finlas Reservoir or a 10 mile ridge walk round the farm. Take in the breathtaking scenery of the farm, Loch and surrounding Scottish Highlands area while you discover the beauty and history of Scotland.
This is a 5000 acre hill sheep and beef working farm which runs 5 miles from the Loch shore to the head of the glen. We have 2000 Scottish Blackface breeding ewes and 40 Blue Grey Suckler cows.
We are wonderfully located for you to visit places like Inveraray – Castle and Jail, Stirling to see the Wallace Monument (Braveheart) and Castle, Aberfoyle – the Sheep and Wool Centre and the magnificent scenery of the Trossachs, where on Loch Katrine sail on the SS Sir Walter Scott, the city of Glasgow for its Museums, Art Galleries and Architecture.
This a true Scottish working farm and you are welcome to watch us during the hustle and bustle of the busy lambing and shearing periods and if you are feeling really fit you may wish to join us for a long hill walk when we gather the sheep in or just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility a highland farm has to offer.
Discover the farms’ rich and varied past – the cup and ring marked stone from the time of the Druids, the site of an Iron Age Fort, a 100 ft deep gorge where a Colquhoun leapt to safety from the MacGregors after the battle of Glen Fruin.
There are 2 Hotels in Luss and there are many good eating places within an 8 mile radius of the Farm.
In the Spring and Summer see the varied colours of green unfold in the surrounding trees and woodland and at this time enjoy your breakfast while watching the sun rise over the Loch and seeing the lambs gambol in the early morning or see the many and varied birds from many garden species to Buzzards, Peregrine Falcons and Osprey which habitat this part of Scotland. Appreciate the magnificent colours of Autumn and the beauty of Winter when looking at the snow capped hills, remembering the log fire waiting to warm you up on those dark evenings.
The farm has been used on many occasions for filming High Road and Taggart.
It is essential you have your own car or a hired car to stay here as public transport is not plentiful.
