Whatever your reason for visiting Scotland:

Braes O' Balquhidder, the ideal base.

the walls and the Laird's collection of antiques and curios that deck
the walls.

and the large picture windows provide the grandeur in this room. The
breakfast bar gives you breakfast with a view. The other door in this
room leads to the kitchen. This modern kitchen with traditional feel
provides you with the facilities to cook for your party. This long
room was the servery, where the food was brought up from the kitchen
to be finally prepared before serving. The original crockery cupboard
