The Kilbryde Smiddy has been an exciting building project in 2011, renovating and extending a
redundant Victorian farm building. It has been sympathetically converted into a 2 bedroom self-catering holiday let.
The main bedroom has a kingsize double bed with an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom has two 3ft single beds with a separate bathroom. The kitchen and living room faces south and west. French doors open onto a sun trap patio, allowing guests to enjoy the peaceful, rural setting. Ben Ledi rises in the west while The Wallace Monument can be found on the eastern horizon.
The Smiddy garden is enclosed with a restored stone dyke on three sides and a beech hedge on the fourth. This is a haven for people wanting to escape and relax in a tranquil rural setting. Plenty to see for bird watchers, red kites are regular visitors; easy walks from the house or more challenging hills are a short drive away.
The Smiddy is located under half a mile from the castle. Guests are welcome to walk up and visit the Castle gardens.
