The Experience

Dodge the lazy sheep on the long drive to arrive (eventually!) at a sweep of gravel and lovely old Cardross in a gorgeous setting. Bang on the enormous ancient door and either Archie or Nicola (plus labradors and lively Jack Russells) will usher you in. And what a delight it is; come here for a blast of Scottish history! Traditional big bedrooms have airiness, long views, antiques, wooden shutters, towelling robes and good linen; one bathroom has a cast-iron period bath. The drawing room is vast, the house is filled with warm character, the Orr Ewings can tell you all the history.

Just the loveliest place to stay. Comfortable, beautiful, with gorgeous walks starting at the front door. Our hosts are personable and kind, and the breakfast was delicious. We couldn't have asked for better.

Pamela, Atlanta

The drive to Cardross was quite stunning with the wonderful autumn colours glowing in the sun. Careful to avoid the guinea foul on the drive, you know it is going to be a very relaxing place to stay. It is traditional and calm without any sign of rush, allowing you to enjoy your stay.


Top line: Great house, great hosts, great dinner. Best night of a trip full of good ones. We really can't gush enough about what a lovely time we had at Cardross. We were there for a special birthday night - and the hosts cooked a spectacular dinner, we drank champagne in the library by the fire with the dogs, and had interesting and lively conversation like we were guests of the family. We look forward to returning some day.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sir Archie & Lady Orr Ewing

  • Cardross is a gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and just 2 miles from the Lake of Menteith, the only lake in Scotland and with historic links to Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots.
  • The local villages and towns around Cardross are charming places to spend a morning or afternoon browsing the highstreets or relaxing over coffee and watching the world pass by. Great places to visit within 30 minutes are Aberfoyle, Callander and Doune
  • The nearest city is Stirling, a 20 minute drive. The city is home to many historic sites including one of Scotland’s grandest castles, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. Picturesque Dunblane is also a 20 minute drive withs it Cathedral
  • If you're a food person, then there is also the following: The Inn at Kippen, The Cross Keys at Kippen, Lake of Menteith Hotel
  • For local activities, Edinburgh is only an hour by car or train making the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe easily accessible whilst staying in the calm of the countryside. Nick Nairn's cookery school is only a couple of miles away too
