There is ample space for cars at the back door. This lovely home is equally suited to a small number of guests, it has a great feel and rather than feeling huge it just smeems to evolve , it's a tardus ! It has a unique location, being close to town and main road network only a couple of miles away, yet it's a peaceful beautiful setting . More

Ideal property for family get-together. Very spacious house and well-equipped. Ideally located in a rural setting but only a five-minute drive into Stirling. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.
