Situated at the entrance to the pretty little town of Auchterarder, this detached stone cottage is well placed between Stirling and Perth. Situated up a small pedestrian lane off the main street and within a short walk of shops, pubs and restaurants.

"Originally built as a stable, this cute little cottage has retained many of its characterful features and provides lucky couples with a warm and welcoming holiday home-from-home. Located in the historic town of Auchterader you are in the perfect place to explore The Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond, with miles of stunning traffic-free walks to amble along, historic buildings and castles to explore and breathtaking waterfalls to marvel at – you and your four-legged friend will most certainly not be bored during your stay here!

The open-plan living/dining area in this delightful little bothy is comfortable and cosy with pretty floral sofas and armchairs providing a welcome spot to snuggle up on after a busy day of adventure. Exposed wooden ceiling beams and stripped pine floors add a traditional, rustic touch and perfectly complement the sleek white kitchen area that adjoins the room. Upstairs you can fall into a deep sleep under the eaves in the restful double bedroom and wake up to the sound of birds singing from the many shrubs and trees that surround the outdoor terrace and seating area below.

Auchterader high street is a pleasant half-mile stroll and home to a lovely selection of shops and cafes along with pretty buildings. The town of Dunblane with its shops and pubs is just 13 miles from the cottage, and Andy Murray’s Cromlix House Hotel can be found just 3 miles further on from here. Golf fans will be more than happy to take the 2-mile drive to one of the famous golf courses at Gleneagles."

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The bothy is located up a pedestrian lane just off the main street of Auchterarder, giving you easy walking access to all the independent shops, pubs and restaurants. The town has a rich history (beyond just golf), which you can discover on foot, passing by the classic Perthshire buildings on the longest main street in Scotland. Check out the Innerpeffray Library, or simply enjoy a wee cuppa at one of the delightful tearooms in town.

Just down the road, a few hundred metres away, you'll discover the Auchterarder Golf Club, where you can delight in a quick (or leisurely) round of golf in inspiring scenery. But don't spend all your best swings here, because this is just one of the famous three courses that comprise Gleneagles, where the Ryder Cup has been held. Golf fans and newbies alike will love relaxing in the luxurious Gleneagles Hotel with its two Michelin stars and spa.

Head south for 19 miles to the town of Stirling for more culture, shopping and great eateries. Take a tour of the local history, including Stirling Castle, a stunning crag-top structure and landscaped gardens where Mary Queen of Scots was raised. Or visit the National Wallace Monument, a majestic tower built on the hilltop overlooking the town.
