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."

The cottage is in a lovely location, very clean and dog friendly. However, our only gripe would be the cost. We were there for 2 days, and were charged 380 (think u could get the week for the same price). We understand it was the holiday weekend, but still felt the price was a bit high, and had i known this before my hubby booked it, i would have mRead moreade him look elsewhere. But it was a nice chilled out 2 days, with nice walking areas for the dog. Hide

This small, well appointed and well fitted cottage suited our week stay perfectly . We found the local shops suitable for our needs and shop staff pleasant and courteous. There were some fine fine walks for our dog adjacent to the cottage
