“Fantastic place”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed over the Easter holiday period for 4 nights. We loved everything about this place, especially the views. It was amazingly well equipped with everything you could possibly want. The owners were very attentive and there is loads to do in the area. Perfect luxury holiday house!

“Outstanding cottage, great hosts, and amazing views.”
Reviewed May 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Mallard Cottage was finished to the highest quality standards equipped with everything that is needed for a very comfortable stay. Wendy and Ian were most welcoming and sharing hosts. The special welcoming touches made for a perfect holiday.
The remote location added to the tranquility and peacefulness of Mallard Cottage - while being close enough to all Stirling facilities - and giving us amazing views of the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle.

“Self Catering Holiday Rental at its very best!”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our return to Mallard Cottage for Easter was every bit as good as last time. Wendy's attention to detail ensured we had everything we needed. The cottage provides a central location for exploring the region, with Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and the Trossachs all within easy reach. It's far enough out of Stirling to ensure peace and quiet yet close enough to the city to avoid to a long drive.

“What a wonderful place”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

WOW! A truly luxurious cottage. Bizarrely in the middle of nowhere yet close to everything. Wendy has done an amazing job with furnishing the cottage to an incredibly high standard. She has provided true service from initial enquiry to our last day nothing was too much trouble. The cottage has everything you could want and more from a pack of goodies on arrival to a very well fitted kitchen, comfy beds beautiful bathroom. I cannot recommend it to you highly enough!

“Gorgeous home with amazing view”

We are so happy we booked this cottage. It is set on a working cattle farm, and even had a flock of sheep in the front pasture. Having a view of Stirling Castle from the bed was a treat! This cottage was truly luxurious and had everything one could wish while away from home. It is well decorated and has high end finishes. Not a thing missing, and I especially loved the underfloor heating. Good weather held for most of our trip, which enhanced the views. We were lucky to see double rainbows over the farm!

“Wow, wow, wow”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Mallard Cottage was everything we could of hoped for and more. A beautiful cottage in a stunning location, yet so conveniently situated for all local amenities. The cottage was lovely and homely and all the little extras (flowers, chocs) were a lovely added touch. Wendy was a lovely host and made us feel really welcome. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Stirling area. We were sorry to leave.
