The cottages are in a secure garden, going through a small gate you can go down into the Glen to explore, the woods near the cottages are blanketed with bluebells, there is a picnic area in the garden and tables and chairs on the terrace outside the cottages, we also have chairs on the balcony where visitors can enjoy the last†of the evening sun,†visitors can walk in our fields and enjoy the tremendous views of the Trossachs, Ben Lomond and the Campsies, in Spring time the fields are full of ewes and lambs.
There are a few small villages in the local area, the closest are (a few minutes by car)
Killearn and Fintry. Both of these are good for shops, pubs and restaurants. There is
also Glengoyne distillery near Killearn where visitors can learn about the history of distilling and of course sample this excellent product.
The big attraction about this area is that you are just a few minutes from The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and also the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park with all that they have to offer. (see the links below).
