Garrique Cottage offers spacious and warm accommodation for visitors, within easy reach of many of Scotland's most historic and scenic attractions. It is quiet and peaceful, with panoramic mountain views, but within easy reach of good local pubs, cafes, and village shops, as well as numerous tourist attractions

The kitchen/ dining/living room provides an ideal space for family activities, with doors out to a small patio and steps down into the garden. Meanwhile the separate sitting room offers a getaway for those who want to read, watch TV, play games or gaze at the ever changing skies over The Trossachs. The hard tennis court is much enjoyed by some visitors as is the variety of local birds and animals.

The cottage is a great base for exploring Scotland, with many visitors making day trips to Inverness, St Andrews, Oban, Ben Nevis, Inverary, or Loch Lomond, as well as Edinburgh and Glasgow. Others, however, prefer to relax and enjoy the many local walks, have fun on the tennis court, or visit the reasonably priced local golf courses.

Further details indoors

Garrique Cottage is all on one level, which makes life easy for toddlers or elderly visitors. There is a twin bedroom with an optional third bed, a double ( Queen) bedroom, a bunk room for two, and a sofa bed in the sitting room.

The shower room can be en-suite with the twin bedroom. The kitchen/ dining/ living room is 10 metres long with a high beamed ceiling, and french doors to a patio with steps down to the secluded south and west facing garden. This is a good area for summer BBQs or for children to play. The separate sitting room has a wood burning stove and wonderful mountain views.

There is a TV and DVD player in both the sitting room and the living room, and lots of books and board games are provided.

Further details outdoors

The cottage garden is visited by a wide variety of birds and animals, including roe deer, rabbits, hare, squirrels and stoats, and there are cattle with their calves in the surrounding fields in the summer. Energetic visitors can stride out from the cottage to explore the tracks through the surrounding woodlands, moors and fields, or take the two mile footpath to Kippen with its good quality pubs, cafe and village shops. The cottage's owners live at Garrique Farmhouse, and depending on the time of year fresh eggs are available from their small flock of free range hens. There is very little passing traffic to disturb the peace and tranquillity of Garrique Cottage. Cottage visitors are welcome to use the hard tennis court at Garrique Farm.

There is no extra charge for electricity, and logs are provided for the wood burning stove.Towels are provided free for overseas visitors; they are available to UK visitors for a small extra charge.

There is a third WC and wash hand basin just off the entrance lobby. The washing machine and freezer are in a separate utility room adjacent to the kitchen.

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

Stirlingshire lies at the heart of historic Scotland, with royal and romantic Stirling Castle crowning a thriving visitor friendly city. Those interested in history and drama can spend hours wandering around the Castle battlements, state rooms and dungeons, then wander down to Argyll's Lodging, the Church of the Holy Rude and the rest of the Old Town. The landscape west of Stirling encompasses The Trossachs mountain range, the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, the bonny banks of Loch Lomond and the Lake of Menteith, the only 'lake' in Scotland - which is a favourite with fishermen.

Places to visit around Stirling include the Bannockburn Memorial (historic 1214 victory over England), Wallace Monument (Braveheart!), Dunblane Cathedral, Doune Castle , the Falkirk Wheel ( linking the refurbished Forth/Clyde and Union Canals, with easy walking or cycling along the tow paths), Callander House and Park (a massive Georgian mansion built astride the Antonine Wall, which was the Romans' northern frontier), and the Rob Roy Centre at Callander.

Stirling

Garrique Cottage is only 20 minutes drive from Stirling, and less than an hour by car from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, with their many and varied attractions. Nearer to home, Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park the Briarlands Children's Farm Park, and the Deanston Distillery Visitor Centre are all less than five miles away, as are Kippen, Gargunnock and Fintry with their choice of good pubs, cafes and village shops. Gleneagles Hotel, with its spa, championship golf courses, and Michelin starred restaurant, and the Glengoyne Distillery Visitor Centre are around forty minutes away, and Falkland Palace, Scone Palace, and Drummond Castle Gardens are within an hour's drive. Intrepid visitors have made day trips to Inverness, St Andrews, Inverary (with its castle and jail) and even Iona.

The ski slopes of Glenshee and GlenCoe can be reached within about two hours, and the Peak Centre in Stirling offers three swimming pools, a climbing wall and an ice rink.

i was disappointed to hear our guests had problems with the plumbing. I asked them several times during their 3 week stay if they had any problems, and they always said everything was fine. It turns out the drain from the shower room was sluggish. I will get it checked out and sorted immediately. Subsequent visitors have not mentioned anything wrong. Like many country cottages, Garrique Cottage has a septic tank, so items such as tampons, facial/baby wipes or a lot of paper can clog up the drains. We provide a small peddle bin for those who want it in the bathroom.
