The Trossachs offers a romantic introduction to the magnificent scenery of Highland Scotland - a land of shapely and craggy mountains, deep-cut glens and shimmering lochs, purple heather moorland and green forests. When the Bond purchased the grand but neglected former hotel at Tigh Mor Trossachs, it pledged that – with the help of the Scottish Tourist Board – it would return the building to its former glory. Following a multi-million pound restoration and development programme, it succeeded, Tigh Mor emerging every bit as magnificent as it was in its heyday. Queen Victoria, a former guest of the hotel, would have approved.
Tigh Mor is just one of 30 glorious UK and European locations that you and your family could enjoy - rent free for life - as investors in the Holiday Property Bond.

Rich in wildlife - the province of deer and eagles - the Trossachs is a region of fascinating history and legend, from the mythical giant Fingal to the notorious outlaw Rob Roy Macgregor and his followers, the ‘children of the mist’.
Roughly a mile to the west of Tigh Mor you can discover the enchantment of Loch Katrine, the beautiful loch that inspired Sir Walter Scott to write "The Lady of the Lake" and which may be experienced, during the summer months, from the deck of the popular tourist steamer the SS Sir Walter Scott. (You may also choose to enjoy a shorter trip - all year round - on the recently acquired and smaller craft known as Ellens Isle.) Six miles further south, over the Duke’s Pass, you arrive at the little town of Aberfoyle, the southern gateway to the Highlands which is home to the Scottish Wool Centre.
Overlooking the town is the David Marshall lodge - the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park visitor centre, which is a starting point for the many forest trails.
The nearest town, Callander, has a golf course and is very popular with salmon fishers. Similarly, the River Teith - a 15-minute drive away - offers excellent salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing.
