Revoan House is set in mature woodland gardens on the edge of the very pretty Punchbowl Dam on the fringe of Strathblane.
Strathblane is a pretty commuter village set in rural Stirlingshire close to Glasgow. The surrounding countryside is some of the prettiest in central Scotland. The area backdrop is dominated by the Campsie Hills which are just to the north.
Strathblane village and it's immediate neighbour, Blanefield, are a short walk or drive and both offer excellent everyday facilities including a highly regarded primary school, friendly local pub, hotel, well stocked convenience shops and a boutique style delicatessen.
The suburban town of Milngavie is only some 4 miles to the south of Strathblane where one can find a broader selection of amenities, including a Marks and Spencer food hall, Tesco superstore and new Waitrose store. There are banks, a post office, bars and restaurants along with a main line train station with regular and direct services to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The cosmopolitan and trendy West End of Glasgow, as well as the city centre, can be reached by car via the A81 (in normal driving conditions) in around twenty five to thirty minutes respectively. Glasgow city has all the cultural, higher educational and leisure services normally associated with a major international centre. Glasgow airport is about 15 miles to the west from where there are regular domestic and international flights.
To the north and west of Strathblane is the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park which is a protected area of great natural scenic beauty. The entire park area offers extensive leisure facilities with beautiful rural and woodland walks, miles of cycle tracks and as with most parts of Scotland, one is never too far away from a golf course and Strathblane is no exception with Virgin Active, Milngavie & Clober.
For anglers, Loch Lomond and some of the surrounding rivers offer both coarse and game fishing by permit. The river Endrick has good mid and end season runs of salmon.
Loch Lomond offers inland sailing and motor cruising, while the Firth of Clyde has excellent chandlery and marina services as well as some of the UK's most scenic and enjoyable coastal sailing.
Travelling from Milngavie, head north out of Milngavie on the Strathblane Road (A81) towards the villages of Strathblane and Blanefield. Before entering Strathblane turn left onto Milndavie Road, continue along Milndavie Road to the next junction turning immediately left onto Old Mugdock Road. Continue up and along Old Mugdock Road for about 500 metres to find the entrance to Revoan House on the right hand side.
