**Due to last minute cancellation dates now available in September 2014**
Riverside Cottage occupies a very private location on the banks of the River Dochart in the beautiful village of Killin. Killin is a small village within the Loch Lomond National Park with stunning scenery right on your doorstep. The cottage garden has unrestricted access to the River Dochart with fishing rights (seasons/ permits for other areas can be obtained from the local newsagent). Trout and salmon are usually to be found in the many pools surrounding the garden's banks. The famous Falls of Dochart are approximately 50 yards downstream from the cottage banks. The area is full of wildlife with a roe deer family living at the bottom of the garden, otters in the river and even an owl sighted in the last few months. Killin has many restaurants with two approx 100 yards from the cottage, as well as a local Co-op store for everyday items.
Killin is within 90 minutes of Glasgow and Edinburgh and only 60 minutes or less from Oban, Glencoe, Gleneagles, Perth and Stirling. The village of Lochearnhead is 4 miles to the south where water-sports and fishing are also available. We have two golf courses within 20 minutes and many more a little further away. There are many forest trails within minutes of the cottage suitable for walking and mountain-biking.
This cosy 2-bedroom cottage is ideal if you want to sit and enjoy a log fire with a glass of wine while admiring the amazing scenery, or if you want to be a bit more active and get out and explore the area.
Main bedrom has a double bed with a single child's bed in an adjoining area.
Second bedroom has a comfortable double sofa bed which will be made up for you and ready to use.
Lounge has a log fire and very comfortable sofas and large picture windows to enjoy the view of the garden, river and the hills beyond. A basket of logs will be available when you arrive with additonal logs available in the outside coal shed. The logs have come from the grounds of the cottage and have been seasoned for over 2 years.
There is a small patio area/ balcony off the main lounge with seating to enjoy the outdoors in the warmer weather.
The newly-fitted kitchen has a dining area, dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven, fridge and freezer and had a large icture window to allow you to enjoy the view down to the river while you eat.
A separate utility/ boot room has a large Belfast sink with flexible hose tap for cleaning boots, fish, and even small dogs! A tumble dryer is available for occasional use.
The bathroom has a large powerful shower with constant hot water available from the combi-boiler.
The cottage has full gas central heating, beautiful oak flooring through the public areas and large picture windows in most rooms to make the most of the views. Wi-fi is also available.
Hairdryer, iron, ironing board, board games and a selection of local reference books are available. Guests are invited to swap their own book with a book from our "swap" library.
Off-street parking is available for 2 cars. The garage can be used to store any equipment/ bicycles, etc.
Guests are reminded that care should be taken in the garden grounds during wet weather, particularly close to the river's edge. Wellingtons/ walking boots are advised for making use of the garden/ riverbank.

Thanks for your feedback. We are working on getting the garden sorted out and I think this work had been started while you were there. It has been difficult to cut the grass with the wet weather.
The property description does state that upstairs is a sofa bed, apologies that you were unhappy with that.
The housekeeper has purchased additional cookware, I believe she may have asked you what items were missing from the kitchen? It's difficult to guess what guests may need as the majority of people eat out when they stay in the cottage and we did not expect people to want to cook full meals. If you have any further suggestions about cookware items that are missing we would appreciate your feedback.
