Description

Perched in the hills west of historic Stirling, and less than an hours drive from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth, Garrique Cottage is an ideal base for exploring Scotland or for relaxing in the garden and surrounding countryside with friends and family, and perhaps a dog or two.. The cottage is peaceful and surprisingly spacious, with a beamed 33 foot long kitchen/dining/ living room and a separate sitting room with a wood burning stove and panoramic mountain views. French windows in the dining area lead out to decking with a picnic table and steps down to the south and west facing private garden. It provides accommodation for up to 5 adults, or groups of up to 6 including at least 2 children.



Garrique Cottage is perfect for those wanting privacy and comfort combined with easy access to a variety of hill and woodland walks, historic homes, beautiful gardens, wild swimming and other activities. 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, often with exclusive use. Up to two dogs per party are very welcome and should enjoy all the open space around the cottage as should any youngsters, however out of consideration to those with allergies we are unable to welcome smokers.

Kippen, with its two gastro pubs, two delicatessen/cafés, village shop and historic church is only four miles away by road or about 40 minutes walk over footpaths. Blair Drummond Safari Park and The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park are close by. The City of Stirling, with its magnificent castle, shops, numerous supermarkets and a variety of eating places is an easy twenty minute drive, and the Wallace Monument, Doune Castle (Game of Thrones) and the Falkirk Wheel are all in easy reach, as is Gleneagles Hotel with its array of golf courses, spa, and multiple other activities. Glen Coe, Inverary, St Andrews, the Scottish Borders and Loch Ness can each be visited within a day. Golf courses at Aberfoyle, Balfron, Dunblane, Stirling, and Auchterarder all welcome visitors.

The cottage has regularly achieved a Certificate of Excellence/Travellers Choice award from Trip Advisor and has been awarded a Customers Choice award for 2023 from cottages.com. Its EPC rating is C for energy efficiency and B for environmental impact.

PLEASE NOTE. Booking from April to October is usually by the week, with a Friday changeover. We are open to shorter stays from November to March, but never less than 3 nights and preferably 4.
