The Smiddy apartment has a large living area with comfy sofabed and TV with intgrated DVD player. The kitchen area is equipped with fridge, oven, hob and microwave. There is also a shower room. The staircase leads to the upper galleried bedroom area (open on one side above the living area), which has a double bed and storage. The Smiddy and its sister apartment, The Stables (property #7180115) are located in a separate barn conversion within the grounds of the main house (Corshill Cottage - property #288255) with their own area of the stunning garden, secluded from the house. The former Smiddy and Stables has been converted into 2 smart and characterful open-plan apartments, each sleeping up to 4 people (ideally a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults) in a galleried double bedroom and a separate double bed settee in each apartment's living aea. There are also dedicated outdoor seating/eating areas. Great flexibility - each apartment is ideal for either a romantic getaway for couples or for a family of 4. Book both apartments for two couples or two families, sleeping up to 8. The area offers great walking, cycling, fishing, golf and pubs/cafes and restaurants close by. Nick Nairn's Cook School is only 10 minutes away. General facilities • Both properties have liquid petroleum gas (LPG) central heating. • All linen and towels are included. • Ample car parking within the grounds Corshill Cottage also offers high quality self-catering (all en-suite) accommodation within what was originally a blacksmith's cottage, dating back to 1810. The Cottage has been carefully updated and extended to provide relaxed, spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to11 people. It stands amidst a large, well-planned charming garden, which it shares with the Smiddy and Stables apartments, which are located in a separate barn conversion. Corshill Cottage and Barn Apartments can sleep a total of 19 people, great for family and friends getaways and celebrations. Downstairs in Corshill Cottage, there is a pretty sitting room with wood-burning stove and comfortable sofas, TV and DVD player, which leads through to the peaceful sun room overlooking the garden, which contains a double bed settee. The kitchen is in French oak and is well-equipped with electric Rangemaster stove, oven and microwave. French doors/windows open onto the garden at the back where there is a dinning terrace. A scullery with dishwasher and fridge/freezer is next to the kitchen as is the utility room with WC, wash-hand basin and washer/dryer. There is a second large family/dining room with centrally situated wood-burning stove and TV/DVD player. Access to the eastern side of the garden is by the French doors/windows opening out to a second patio area, also with an outdoor dinning table. The dining area has a large table, which can comfortably seat 12 people, there is also space to add the table from the kitchen to cater for larger groups. A twin-bedded room with en-suite shower completes the downstairs accommodation. There are 2 staircases. The first one leads to a bedroom with a king-size double bed and a lovely large bathroom with luxuirous bath and shower attachment. There is a large fitted wardrobe situated between both rooms. The second staircase leads to the 2 remaining en-suite bedrooms: one double bedroom with en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobe and one family room with en-suite shower room across the landing from the double bedroom.

Well appointed apartment, although uncomfortably close to neighbouring apartment, and when it's hot there isn't much cross ventilation. That said, we were there during a surprisingly warm time. No actual shower - just a rose on a hose on the tub - and no WI-fi...More

About the neighbourhood
Stirling offers many historic attractions, including Stirling Castle (which has been used as a concert venue, including Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue, Michael Buble, Bob Dylan), the National Wallace Monument and the Battle of Bannockburn Heritage Site. In addition, Stirling has varied shopping opportunities and eating places. Don't forget to visit Stirling Old Town (just below the Castle) which has a different feel to modern Stirling, with its cobblestone streets and buildings of architectural interest. Stirling has the best surviving town wall in Scotland. It can be explored on the Back Walk, which follows the line of the wall from Dumbarton Rd (behind the Park & Ride Bus Stop) to the Castle. You pass the town cemeteries (housing the Star Pyramid, an out-sized affirmation of Reformatio...
