Stunning, newly renovated two-bedroomed cottage with amazing panoramic views of Stirling Castle, National Wallace Monument and the Ochil hills situated on a working arable and pedigree beef farm, on the edge of the historic city of Stirling. Our location is perfect for walkers, shoppers, birdwatchers, golfers, historians and families of all ages.

It provides a convenient base from which you can explore the surrounding area such as the Blairdrummond Safari Park, local farm shops and the many historic buildings of Stirling. In addition it is ideally located to enable you to go on day trips to Loch Lomond, the Trossachs (Scotland's first National Park), Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and St Andrews either by car or train from the local train station (approx. 2 miles away).

Stirling is the centre of Scotland where Highland mountains and lochs meet the lowland cities. It is often known as “The Gateway to the Highlands”, due to its historic strategic position. The city of Stirling is only a few minutes' drive away where trendy shops in the Thistles Shopping Centre combine with the heritage of Stirling Castle and the Old Town.

The property is also perfectly suited for the active holidaymaker with excellent sporting facilities at the Peak sports village (incorporating an indoor swimming pool and ice rink), and the National Tennis Centre at Stirling University, all within a few miles of the cottage.

The cottage is furnished and equipped to the highest standard allowing you to relax and enjoy your surroundings and holiday to the fullest. All bedding, towels, electricity, central heating, sample toiletries, a small supply of domestic goods (toilet rolls, dishwasher powder, washing-up liquid etc.) & unlimited Wi-Fi are included in the price. In winter a starter pack of wood is available for the wood-burning stove, with further wood available to be purchased.

A fresh flower arrangement and a small complimentary basket will be awaiting you on arrival along with tea/coffee and a selection of home made baking.

"An amazing family holiday"

This cottage was one in a million, We have never stayed in such a beautiful homely luxurious loved cottage. Wendy And Ian are such lovely helpful kind people, nothing was too much trouble, Wendy had thought of every lovely little touch possible. They invited us to come and see there calves that had not long been born on the farm, this was a wonderful experience for us all especially as my partners daughter was staying with us. The view was stunning, yet local amenities near by, supermarket, resturants, swimming pool............... We will return to Mallard cottage soon.

"Perfect location with great view of the Wallace Monument"

Being located on a quiet road, only mnutes from a main traffic circle, gave us quick, easy and unparalleled access to all the site seeing we planned during our stay. The cottage was bright and airy and the fresh home made scones that were delivered, out of the oven, upon our arrival were terrific. We spent very relaxing evenings on th deck, watching the sun setting behnid the Wallace Monument.

Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review, it is much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Wendy

"The best holiday rental property we have ever stayed in!"

We were delighted with this beautiful cottage let. set in beautiful surroundings close to the family farm. Wendy had thought of everything. We were welcomed with a lovely welcome pack, including an Easter egg! The cottage was extremely spacious, clean and had every modern convenience. It was extremely well decorated and the kitchen facilities were excellent. Its location makes it ideal for those who want to tour the Trossachs, St Andrews, Loch Lomond and Stirling City itself. We have a list of places to visit the next time we go. The price of the property was great value for money, we were so comfortable with every facility provided, indeed if the weather had been wet, we would have been more than happy to remain indoors, as there were plenty of books to read,games to play and a supply of DVDs. All in all the best self catering accommodation we have booked in the UK and we have already made a reservation for next Easter!

Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review, it is much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Wendy

"Spectacular!!! A paradise in the country!"

Wendy and Ian were the perfect hosts. The baked scones shortly after our arrival were so yummy. This cottage was refurbished with love and care. Everything a traveler would want in a home away from home is here. The bed was so comfortable, it made it very hard to get out of every morning. The beautiful views of Stirling Castle and the William Wallace Memorial were awesome, especially when they are lit at night. After a long day of sight seeing, this cottage was paradise to return to. It is so homey and comfortable where you can put your feet up, watch TV, surf the net with the WiFi provided or listen to music. Many times we just stared out the window at the beautiful view. We cannot wait to return and tell all of our friends about this oasis in the country. Do not hesitate to rent this beautiful cottage, you will love every minute of it.

"The best kept secret in Scotland"

This cottage was amazing the breathtaking views, the comfort and cleanliness of the home was better than any 5 star Four Seasons Hotel I have stayed in. It had everything to make this one of my best vacations in Scotland ever!!! Peaceful and away from hotels where everything is cookie cutter. Wendy and Ian are the most gracious hosts. I have booked my trip for next year with them again. SOOOOO now I guess the secret is out! BOOK now you won't regret it.

"Looks good on the website but in reality this cottage is amazing!"

We had a truly wonderful and relaxing break in this fantastic cottage. Set in a peaceful and private location the cottage is the ideal base to visit the many nearby attractions of Scotland including Sterling Castle, The William Wallace Monument, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Loch Lomond. Wendy could not have been more hospitable even down to making sure our small dog was pampered. The cottage itself is of the highest standard with no expense spared on the fixtures and fittings we really did feel we were in five star accommodation.

"Stunning cottage in stunning location"

The cottage is gorgeous. 5 star decor and lots of lovely personal touches to make you feel at home. The scenery is breath taking and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but in reality your 5 minutes from the centre of Stirling. We will definitely stay here again.
