About Us


Welcome to Bousd, owned and managed by George and Joanne Barrie.
In 2008, the day before we got married, we bought 4 and a half acres of land on the edge of Callander and built our own house. In 2014 we added Bousd Holiday Cottage and have been offering self-catering holidays ever since, welcoming guests from all over the World.

We love the breathtaking scenery of Ben Ledi and the unspoiled countryside on our doorstep and the wildlife it attracts. Our guests love it too. Since we moved here we have been rescuing ex-battery hens, unwanted pigs, and geriatric sheep. An expensive but worthwhile hobby.


If we get any spare time, George is out playing golf and Joanne enjoys rambling and hillwalking. If you would like any information about these or other things to do in the area, please just ask.

Although we are just next door, we have no intention of disturbing you. Rest assured we are just here if you need anything. Some people we only see when they arrive and leave, others have become lifelong friends. We look forward to welcoming you to Bousd and making your holiday as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
