Trossachs Gate Cottage and the Old Chapel:
This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a truly unique and historic property in the heart of the popular tourist town of Aberfoyle. Trossachs Gate Cottage and the Old Chapel is a detached ‘2 in 1’ property with access via Aberfoyle’s Main St, or via Trossachs Rd. It is a link detached property onto the post office which fronts onto Aberfoyle’s Main Street.

Currently the property is split into 2 separate properties, The Old Chapel (originally a historic stable block) is located on the ground floor and comprises of the owners accommodation and Trossachs Gate Cottage is on the upper level (with access via the top garden) and is currently utilised as a very successful Air BnB. The property has been maintained to an extremely high standard and is cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Now known as Trossachs Gate Cottage this totally unique property has been evolving since at least the 1850’s when it was a single storey stable block and it became part of the Victorian ‘Horse & Carriage Tourism Tours’ of the time. However, it may be that the original stables building could date back earlier than this to when Aberfoyle held weekly cattle markets in the 1670’s.
In the last 100 years the downstairs the property has also been used as a Catholic Chapel whilst upstairs was the village Freemason Hall before it was converted into a home.
Each property has its own entrance, parking and private outdoor areas.
The properties sit within beautiful established gardens with various patio areas, a mature lawn, shrubs and flower beds which attract all forms of bird and wildlife. The lower property is also surrounded by ancient ‘Living Walls’ giving you the feeling of being surrounded by nature with complete privacy
The ‘Old Chapel’ is located on the ground floor and can be accessed via the main gardens on Trossachs Road the Main Street which takes you through the large red gates and into the enclosed cobbled Courtyard and ‘Living Walls’.

The reception hallway provides access to the main lounge with its beamed ceiling. The lounge also has a recessed office area and also a good sized conservatory. The Old Chapel also has a good sized kitchen with access onto the gardens and workshop, 2 double bedrooms and a spacious shower room, off the main bedroom there is also a private and sunny covered courtyard which the owners use for relaxing in and al fresco dining. To the back is an attached spacious store which could be easily be converted into further living accommodation. There is also a separate bike store.
Trossachs Gate Cottage is located on the upper floor and for many years has been run as a very successful Air BnB rental (it has 60+ 5 star reviews). It provides access onto the attractive and mature garden grounds which are shielded from the road by a mature hedge. It has 2 patio areas (1 with a purpose built all weather gazebo and BBQ area), a garden shed with power, a log storage area and off street parking.
As soon as you step inside Trossachs Gate Cottage you are presented with lots of original features reflecting the history of the property. Once used as the meeting hall for the masons, it was converted circa 1947 to accommodation. The Lounge is large and spacious enough for relaxing and dining and has an AGA wood burning stove. The kitchen is well equipped with base and wall units and a gas range, it also contains a newly fitted LPG boiler which runs the central heating and hot water.
There are also 2 comfortable bedrooms and a refurbished bathroom with cast iron bath. Access to the large floored and lined attic area is via a wooden ‘alternator staircase’. The attic is currently used to store supplies for their AirBnB, in the past it has also been used as a double bedroom and office space. The attic space could easily be used as a child’s bedroom.
This unique property must be viewed to appreciate the flexibility of uses. Allowing someone to live in 1 part and attain a living from renting the other part as the current owners do. A 3rd rental property could also be created by converting the workshop into further AirBnB accommodation, or it could easily incorporated into the downstairs property.
