Garrique Cottage in Stirling and Falkirk, a cottage in Central Scotland: Garrique Cottage exterior

Spacious cottage with wonderful wildlife, great mountain views & tennis court

In the heart of historic Scotland, surrounded by woods, walks, and wild life, Garrique Cottage enjoys a peaceful setting with panoramic mountain views. It is a spacious, well equipped cottage with easy access to shops and entertainment and good WiFi.

Very Accessible
The nearby villages of Kippen and Gargunnock – 10 minutes by road - have useful village shops, and several pubs with good food. Kippen also has a delicatessen/café and is a 40 minute walk across the fields for those who like to work up a thirst.
The City of Stirling, renowned for its outstanding castle and historic old town, offers extensive shopping, swimming pools, climbing wall, ice rink and restaurants and is reached in 20 minutes.

Accommodation
The cottage was renovated and enlarged a decade ago. The extension provides a spacious kitchen/dining/living room area (10 metres long) which opens on to a decked terrace, with a picnic table and space for a BBQ (provided). Wide steps from the terrace lead down to the secluded south west facing garden. This is an ideal area for children to play in or to enjoy a evening drink. The second sitting room is equipped with a wood burning stove (logs supplied) and enjoys spectacular mountain views. The cottage interior is all on one level making it easy for children or the elderly. The double bed room ( Super King size) can be ensuite with the shower room by closing a corridor door, leaving the family bathroom and third toilet for the rest of the party. The bunk beds can accommodate adults as well as children.

Stay at home activities
Garrique Cottage tenants can enjoy the hard tennis court at Garrique Farm, wander along the tracks through the forestry and woodlands, or follow the old drove road to the Spout of Ballochleam (a spectacular waterfall on the edge of a grouse moor). Visitors have seen plenty of wild life in and around the garden, including hare, deer, rabbits, red squirrels, stoats, and all sorts of birds. Cows and their calves usually graze the adjoining fields during the summer. Shaggy highland cattle sometimes live at the bottom of the drive.

Nearby attractions
Blair Drummond Safari Park is 15 minutes away. Other local attractions range from the paddle steamer on Loch Katrine and fishing on the Lake of Menteith, to the Bannockburn Memorial ( great for youngsters), Falkirk Wheel, and the Wallace Monument (Braveheart!).

Great base for touring
Garrique cottage is an ideal base for exploring much of Scotland. At Stirling you can join the motorway to Glasgow (45 minutes from the cottage), Edinburgh (1 hour), Gleneagles, with its 3 golf courses, spa and Michelin starred restaurant (40 minutes), and Inverness ( 3 hours). Glencoe and Glenshee ( with their ski runs) are within 2 hours, as are Inverary and St Andrews.

Sporting Activities
Apart from the Garrique tennis court, these include seven golf courses within half an hour, and horse riding in The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
