Grand turreted house in a secluded spot amongst mature gardens and rolling hills, 3.5 miles from Dunblane.

This secluded historic hideaway in Central Scotland is the ideal place for a bunch of friends to enjoy an intimate celebration in a welcoming home from home. Sleeping 13, it’s perfect for parties, with ample space for guests to gather together or to spread out and find a favourite nook or cranny. If your guest list is longer, there are two further properties available to book on-site. Some of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks are also nearby, including the mighty Stirling Castle, while great outdoor adventures await, from fishing and hiking to country pursuits.

 

Step inside this spacious three-storey retreat where the owner has thought of everything to make your stay incredibly comfortable, from the entrance hall to the traditional country-style interior in warm inviting tones. The spacious kitchen is well-equipped for culinary kings and queens with its four-oven Aga, double electric oven, induction hob, and ample workspace, plus ample cold storage. Enjoy family meals by the open fire in the elegant dining room, or enjoy casual BBQ dining outside in the private enclosed garden. After dinner, watch the sunset over the hills from the comfort of squishy seats in the westward-facing conservatory. Catch up on favourite films and music tracks with the SkyTV and DVD player, CD player and iPod dock, or enjoy nightcaps by the cosy woodburner in the drawing room upstairs. When bedtime calls, you’ll find a convenient king-size bedroom and a family bathroom on the ground floor, with six further bedrooms (one en-suite) and two family bathrooms on the upper floors. There’s ample parking available for guests, and you’ll find shops, a pub, eateries and amenities in nearby Dunblane (3.5 miles).

The beauty of this property is its versatile location which puts both cultural and outdoorsy attractions within close reach. Learn some more about Scotland's rich history with a trip to one of the local castles, including the medieval Doune Castle (8.5 miles) and the gloriously royal Stirling Castle (6.5 miles). Once in Stirling, visit the National Wallace Monument and the town's local art gallery for a spot of culture.

 

For hiking, mountain biking and fishing, take the 17-mile trip to the edge of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Here you'll find the vast Loch Lomond (33 miles) for fishing or sailing, and the popular Munro of Ben Lomond (34 miles) which offers an enjoyable 4 to-5 hour hiking experience. If you didn't manage to catch any fish on the loch, however, then head to the busy SEA Life centre (36 miles) to see something impressive.

 

Staying a little closer to home, Dunblane is a short 5 miles from home and boasts plenty of local attractions and activities. Keen golfers will flock to the popular local golf course (4.5 miles), whilst all the family can enjoy the selection of restaurants and local pubs. The town also boasts a stunning ancient cathedral and a local museum. Be sure to check out the town's famous golden post box, courtesy of their proudest prior resident, tennis star Andy Murray.

The Cottage is a brilliant base for a large group. Lots to do within easy reach but a big enough place to just stay and relax in.
