This superb retreat in a peaceful rural setting is the ideal base for couples or friend groups to explore some of Scotland’s most famous attractions. The beautiful property sleeps four guests and is perfect for keen golfers; it overlooks the course at Tulliallan , and is just 1.5 miles from the small town of Kincardine on the River Forth. Historic Stirling is within 15 miles and boasts a majestic castle, the spectacular horse head sculptures known as The Kelpies, and lovely woodland walks.
This lovely retreat has a splendid, vaulted oak ceiling and beams throughout, with the outside wall consisting entirely of glass. The result is a wonderfully light and airy space that seems to merge with the trees and grass outside. Well-crafted wooden dining furniture and a breakfast bar echo the natural materials used in the roof above.
The spacious open-plan living space features a lovingly restored original stone wall. This houses the cosy wood burner, and there is also underfloor heating to keep you snug on frosty days. Sumptuous sofas with cushions and sheepskin throws are an irresistible invitation to snuggle up, relax and admire the country view. The large dining table seats up to eight guests, while the dramatic streamlined kitchen has all a keen cook could desire. There are two attractive bedrooms: one king-size and one double. Both have beautiful wooden beams and are simply but tastefully furnished.
A glass door from the kitchen area leads to the outside decked patio, with garden furniture. This is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy that first morning cup of tea or coffee.
A trip to see the magnificent, Kelpies (8 miles) is a must. Towering 100 feet tall and weighing more than 300 tonnes each, these massive artworks are modelled on two real-life animals, the Clydesdale horses, Duke and Baron. The sculptures celebrate these and other gentle giants whose strength and endurance helped shape the industrial history of this part of Scotland.
The Kelpies stand in The Helix, a splendid 350-hectare community park created between Falkirk and Grangemouth. There is something for all ages here, with an adventure playground, woodland walks, cycle paths, wetlands with boardwalks, a lagoon and splash play water fountains for toddlers. There is a coffee shop and visitor centre, and you can even go inside a Kelpie on a tour to see their remarkable construction.
Discover more about Scotland’s epic history at one of the country’s greatest stone castles. Mighty Stirling Castle (13.5 miles) standing high above the city, has a turbulent past. The scene of past sieges and battles, it was the childhood home of Mary, Queen of Scots. Explore the Great Hall, once the setting for medieval banquets, the magnificent Chapel Royal, and take in far-reaching views from the beautiful gardens.
This corner of Scotland is steeped in heritage. The National Wallace Monument, a prominent feature of the city skyline, celebrates Scotland’s national hero – while the Battle of Bannockburn Experience relives in virtual reality, one of the country’s most famous battles.
For a quieter experience, enjoy a peaceful walk through Tulliallan Wood from your doorstep, and explore Devilla Forest (2 miles), where you may spot red squirrels and dragonflies.
