Little Eden | Luxury Self-Catering | Loch Lomond, Scottish Highlands

Romantic and remote, but still within an hour of Glasgow, this luxury self-catering Highland cottage is as far from city life as one can possibly get. Bordered by untamed woodlands, a secluded inlet on Loch Lomond and a kaleidoscope of Acer trees which burst in shades of crimson, Little Eden is the most blissful of Scottish retreats.

Self-catering cottage on Loch Lomond, Scotland


Discovered by chance near the end of a weary day on the West Highland Way, Little Eden started life in 1895 by serving the tiny village of Ross as a grain mill. From humble beginnings come great things, and this once modest loch-side lodge has been transformed from simple dwellings to the finest of self-catering cottages in the Highlands. There are few places in the world where sunsets are as magnificent as they are on the shores of Loch Lomond; behind heaven-reaching mountains which plummet upwards from loch to sky, maroon clouds smear across an apricot Zion and flawlessly reflect in the mirrored waters below. The best bit? With a cascading garden fringing the loch, this view is yours and yours alone.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Upstairs in the rafters are Little Eden's two bedrooms. The cosy king looks out onto the river and is a cool retreat, complete with soft-enough-to-sink-into cushions and a thick blanket for snuggling under on crisp Scottish evenings. Across the landing is the serene twin, with accent yellows, woodland views and beds so comfortable that long, drawn-out lie ins will be difficult to avoid. Perfect for warming up after long Highland hikes and Scottish persuits, the ground-floor family bathroom has a sleek dual shower along with large claw-foot bath tub. There is also one extra WC located on the ground floor in the utility room.


Tumbling down towards the Loch Lomond shore in a blaze of bluebells and leafy green trees, Little Eden's grounds are a Scottish secret garden just waiting to be discovered. Settle under the trees for a breakfast picnic, bird-watch across the loch or take it back to youthful times and make daisy chains in the dappled sunshine. When the day darkens, retreat to the rear of the cottage for long nights surrounded by fiery Japanese Maples under one of those famous Scottish sunsets, feet nicely toasting by the fire pit. In winter, snowball fights between the trees, Beauty and the Beast style, are all but mandatory.

For Relaxation

With all those big mountains and wild woodlands, Scotland is a country that, unquestionably, must be explored. Walk out from Little Eden in any direction and an adventure awaits: join the popular West Highland Way which crosses the bottom of the garden, launch kayaks or canoes brought from home into the loch or explore the Ross Burn and its fairy trails which ramble alongside. For the hardy hiker, summit Ben Lomond, one of Scotland’s most popular Munros standing high above the loch. Anyone with a gentler disposition will prefer to embark on an adventure in whisky at the nearby Glengoyne Distillery; book Arthur, (if he’s still there!) or another one of their expert guides, to take you on a tour.


Parking is available for two cars, please note the access the lane is not suitable for low slung cars. The modern kitchen includes an induction hob and oven, coffee machine and dishwasher. There is also a separate utility room with washing machine. Parents are advised to supervise children in the garden, which features three ponds and access to the loch and river.

Our Take

We just love our lochside haven for all its unique and magical features. You can wild swim in the loch at the foot of the garden, stargaze without distraction on clear nights, or stroll 2km along the West Highland Way from the foot of Little Edenīs garden to the Rowardennan Hotel for a pub meal

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Loch Lomond, Scotland to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Become a Malt Master Nearby Glengoyne Whisky Distillery, which straddles the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, offers visitors the opportunity to mix their own single malt whisky. Learn about the history of the distillery, take a tour with the most knowledgable of guides, and then sit down in a private room to learn about the importance of barrel-ageing. After trials of tasting and mixing, take home your very own unique single malt to sip in Little Eden's garden as the sun sets fire to the sky.

Hit the slopes During the winter months, if the conditions are right and the roads through the Highlands are open, Glencoe Mountain Resort offers an easy and accessible option for anyone with a real hankering for a day shredding powder. Around a two hour, and breathtaking, drive from Little Eden, this small but popular ski resort offers a range of fun runs for all abilities, a park and an all-important bar with views across the roof of Scotland.

Get the adrenaline pumping Join Loch Lomond Leisure, based just two kilometres up the loch from Little Eden, for an adrenaline-fuelled day exploring the area. Embark on a speedboat tour, take the family mountain biking or water skiing and see this stunning part of the world from a different perspective. Canoe to one of the small islands in the middle of the loch, spot rare birds hunting in the shallows or even face some fears by learning to abseil - the options are limitless! Be sure to call in advance as many activities are seasonal.

Take it easy A holiday in Scotland doesn't need to be filled with moutain hikes, long canoe expeditions or whisky. To truly sink into relaxation, the Cameron House Spa, located on the opposite side of the loch, offers a wealth of treatments to coax guests into total bliss. While away a day in the Hammam-style spa, indulge in a full-body massage and float without a care in the world in the rooftop infinity pool.



Scottish produce is some of the finest out there, and stocking up on local, organic grub from an independent farm shop is an absolute must. Just 22 miles away, and on the way to Stirling, The Woodhouse offers homemade food and tasty cakes alongside a plethora of pies, sausages and traditional Scottish goodies.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your luxury self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).

Eating Out

For honest pub grub to fill your boots after a long day Munro-bagging, the Rowardennan Hotel, just a 25-minute stroll down the loch, offers an extensive menu and gorgeous views at the bottom of Ben Lomond. For a more refined dining experience, head across the loch on a water taxi to the pretty village of Luss, and find a seat in Luss Seafood Bar, where award-winning chef, David Hethington, has created an exceptional, seasonal menu.
