This pretty, rural-style cottage was originally a barn and has now been converted to offer comfortable, contemporary accommodation, within scenic central Scotland.

Sitting in 20 acres of shared grounds offering woodland walks and rural rambles from the doorstep, this charming two-bedroom cottage is in the perfect location for families or friends seeking a comfortable base from which to explore the Perthshire countryside.

Spend your days exploring ancient castles at Stirling and Falkirk, bagging munros in The Trossachs National Park and skimming across Loch Lomond on a speedboat before returning to your peaceful holiday home for an alfresco supper in the courtyard garden. Converted from an old barn back in 2008, your pretty single-storey cottage has a contemporary-style with tasteful decor and oak flooring throughout. The open-plan interior is perfect for socialising together and the two bedrooms are restful spaces with inviting beds and bright soft-furnishings.

Stepping through the front door into the bright hallway, there is plenty of space to leave walking boots and wellies and hang your coats on the pegs provided, before heading through to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Prepare yourself a delicious meal in the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy at the extending oak dining table positioned in the corner. Curl up on the sofa in front of the TV or get competitive with a family board game. From the hallway you will find the two bedrooms, the first a cosy twin room overlooking woodlands, next a family bathroom with shower over bath and at the end of the hall, is the master bedroom with super king-size bed and an en-suite shower. Outside, there is a picnic bench and BBQ for alfresco dining in your courtyard garden. Private parking is available.

Your cottage is situated on the Cauldhame Estate where you have 20 acres of shared grounds to explore. Find your perfect picnic spot overlooking the wildlife ponds, or spot red squirrels and roe deer on a stroll through the grounds.

Barn Cottage is a charming property in beautiful countryside but close enough to the town of Dunblane to satisfy all tastes. The quiet rural location is perfect for a relaxed week away in stunning countryside. I would definitely book this cottage again!

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
