Great for family and friend gatherings. Located only 7 miles from Stirling, in Central Scotland, and conveniently located for many visitor attractions, including Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond. Corshill Cottage offers high quality self-catering accommodation within what was originally a blacksmith's cottage, dating back to 1810. The Cottage has been carefully extended to provide relaxed, spacious and comfortable accommodation for 11 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. Each apartment sleeps up to 4 in a double galleried bedroom above a good sized living area with double bed settee and separate Kitchen area. The details for the Smiddy and Stables Apartments can also be viewed on the holiday lettings site or our own website www.selfcateringholidaylets.co.uk

The 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 doube 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.

There is a second large family/dining room with centrally situated wood-burning stove and TV with integrated 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 large 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.

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

Central Scotland has much to offer visitors. Aside from the many attractions offered by Glasgow and Edinburgh, including fantastic shopping, Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish Parliament, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and the Burrell Art Collection in Glasgow, there are many other locations within the Central Belt which are well worth a visit, e.g. Linlithgow Palace, New Lanark Heritage Centre, the Falkirk Wheel, Forth & Clyde Canal, Loch Lomond, Rob Roy's Grave at Balquhidder, St Andrews for both golf and the beach, Turnberry, again for golf and many other attractions. All of the above are between 30 minutes to 1 hour drive from Corshill Cottage.

Stirling

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 Reformation values dating from 1863), then the path continues around the back of the Castle to Gowan Hill where you can see the Beheading Stone, now encased in iron bars to prevent contemporary use.

The Church of the Holy Rude has been the town's parish church for 600 years; James VI was crowned here in 1567.

The Old Town Jail is a great venue for kids, as actors take you through the complex, portraying a cast of characters that illustrate the hardships of Victorian prison life entertaining style.

The surrounding countryside offers many opportunities to indulge in outdoor pursuits, including fishing (Loch Lubnaig, Lake of Menteith, Loch Venachar, River Teith, River Leny, etc.), hillwalking (Menteith Hills, Ben A'an, Ben Ledi, Ben Venue, Ben Vane, etc.) cycling, cooking (The Nick Nairn Cookschool is based in Port of Menteith), pony & segway trekking (Rednock Farm between Thornhill and Port of Menteith), sports centre activities (ice skating, climbing wall, swimming, tennis, etc.). There are also numerous golf courses, including at Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Callander, Aberfoyle, with the famous Gleneagles golf courses approx 25 minutes drive from Corshill Cottage - the venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup championship.

"Perfect getaway for our large party"

This property was exactly as advertised, and the photographs do not entirely do it justice. Our party of 11 found the property homely and cosy, and the owners have been more than accommodating re: giv… More
