A charming two-bedroom holiday home, close to Sheriffmuir, which blends traditional cottage comfort with modern day touches, and is well positioned for walks through beautiful scenery.

For families and friends seeking a cosy retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life, this traditional cottage offers a home-from-home on the peaceful Cauldhame Estate. Walks through the grounds of the estate are on the doorstep, offering wonderful views of the battlefield of Sheriffmuir and The Trossachs are only a short journey away. The pretty village of Dunblane is close by with bars, shops and restaurants for evenings off from self-catering and the vibrant cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee are all accessible from the property. With exposed beams, original cast iron range and ironwork staircase, your cosy cottage blends tradition with contemporary style. Having been renovated in early 2019, the cottage has all the modern facilities you would expect in a property that harks back to time gone by.

Enter the white-washed cottage through the front door into the entrance hall with bespoke ironwork staircase leading to the first floor. Unwind in the ‘modern heritage’ living room, with exposed beams, plump sofas and crackling open fire creating a restful space for quiet conversation late into the evening. Pick up some local produce in nearby Dunblane to rustle up a hearty meal in the kitchen/diner. Enjoy leisurely meals around the oak-topped dining table, positioned in front of the original cast-iron range, sadly no longer working. The family bathroom with underfloor heating is on this level. Take the stairs to the first floor where you will find the two inviting bedrooms and cloakroom off the landing. The super king-size bedroom is a generous room with cosy bed dressed in crisp linens and bright throws. The restful second bedroom has twin beds nestled beneath the sloped ceiling.

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

With 20 acres of gardens and grounds to explore, enjoy woodland walks and nature rambles from the doorstep. Spot red squirrels and roe deer in the grounds or find a picnic spot overlooking the wildlife ponds. Independent stores, supermarkets and welcoming pubs can be found in Dunblane (4.5 miles), a thriving town on the Allan Water. Visit the medieval cathedral, stroll along the riverside and discover the history of the town in the fascinating Dunblane Museum where exhibits range from a 4000-year old cannel coal necklace to artefacts relating to local resident, Andy Murray.

Take a tour of one of the local distilleries and maybe purchase a bottle or two of your favourite tipple. Learn about the history of Scotland's national drink with a visit to Glenturret Distillery (17 miles), arguably the oldest in Scotland, where The Famous Grouse Experience tells the story of the legendary brand. If gin is your thing, then Stirling Gin (5 miles) offers tours and tastings. Find out how the spirit is created and distilled and have a lesson in how to make the perfect G&T. Not to be missed are the world's largest equine sculptures, The Kelpies (20 miles), towering 30 metres above the Forth and Clyde Canal and for a truly memorable experience book onto a tour that takes you inside the massive sculptures to appreciate the engineering and structure of them from a unique perspective.

Less than 5 miles from The Kelpies is another feat of engineering, The Falkirk Wheel (25 miles) where you can take a boat trip that soars 35 metres into the air on the world's only rotating boat lift.

Lovely little cottage, very well presented. Great location for exploring Falkirk and Stirling as well as further afield. Also feels miles from anywhere if you just want a peaceful retreat. Owners are lovely, would highly recommend this place.

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.
