A number of walks start at the back door, and offer the chance to see deer, red squirrels, hare, rabbits, lambs in the spring,, and all sorts of song birds. and raptors A hard tennis court is available for visitors.

Relaxing week in Garrique Cottage

By Lorna Maclean on 11-Oct-2022

We spent a week on Garrique cottage with our 2 dogs. The cottage is well equipped with amazing views from the sitting room. It is close enough to Kippen if you need to stock up but very secluded to enjoy the peace and quiet too. The garden is lovely, the dogs enjoyed chasing the robot lawn mower! Be aware though that it is not enclosed. We would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

Owner response on 30-Oct-2022

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves. Haste ye back.

Perfect cottage and location

By Geraldine McKenna on 18-Dec-2022

Fantastic cottage. So comfortable and peaceful. Stunning view to greet us every morning. So much to see and do in the area…lochs, gardens and walking routes. Enjoyed eating at the Cross Keys in the village. The cottage owner, Fiona, was very helpful and generous with fruit from their garden and honey from their bees. We had a wonderful time staying here.
