Stunning scenery

Only 4 miles from the historic city of Stirling, yet hidden away in a truly magnificent and peaceful rural scenery means a perfect location for year-round holidays. Osprey Hideaways overlooks the owners’ own 120-acre loch where ospreys can be seen feeding most days in season. 300ft high cliffs frame the far side of the water, making the views genuinely stunning. All the cottages are furnished to a very high boutique standard and provide excellent accommodation for couples or family groups. A welcome pack is provided including a bottle of bubbly so that you can relax as soon as you arrive. There is also lovely linen, towels, bathrobes - and even slippers! To top this off is the honesty room where you can borrow books, a huge selection of DVDs, games, toys and visitor information. The owners live on site and are there to help as much (or as little!) as you want.

Each cottage has been named after birds that are regularly seen flying overhead, and are perfectly located to enjoy the best of both worlds at any time of the year - the peace of the countryside and the amenities and activities of the city. As well as being only 4 miles from Stirling city centre, it’s only 5 miles to the motorway junction for surprisingly quick journey times to Edinburgh, Perth and Glasgow and all their facilities. Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park is 20 miles away and the mountains to the north or the beautiful sea lochs to the west are all within a 2 hour drive. There are numerous golf courses locally and even the Gleneagles course is only 35 minutes’ away. For walks the choice is endless and one of the best cliff-top walks in central Scotland starts right at the cottages! Stirling is a vibrant but compact university city offering wonderful attractions, including an incredible castle, the amazing Wallace Monument, the historic Church of the Holy Rude and even ghost tours. There are restaurants to suit all tastes, swimming pools, sport centres, multiplex cinema, theatre, museum, pubs and shops. The best bit is that Stirling is very much a year round destination. The perfect place for the perfect holiday! Shops, pubs and restaurants 4 miles.

    Probably the best cottage we have ever been in. Everything was very clean and tidy and the welcome pack was great - we can see why they are all called Boutique cottages. Barn Owl Cottage is the best for guests with disabilities as everything is on the ground floor. For those that require Disability Aids (mobility scooter, Zimmer frames, etc.) MobilityStirling, in Stirling is not too far away and they can deliver for a nominal charge. The range of DVDs/BluRay DVDs as well as books and games is quite outstanding all of which are stored in a room to which every cottage has a key to access them so there is no clutter in the cottages themselves. WiFi is available but can be sporadic as it is Satellite connected. George the owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. If we had to give it a star rating it would most definitely be 5*.

    If you are looking for a quite relaxing place to stay in a beautiful area then Barn Owl is the place for you. A short walk from the cottage took us to the Loch which we could see from the living room in Barn Owl, if you are a bird watcher you wont be disappointed as the names of the cottages suggest Ospreys, Peregrine's to name a few can be seen there though you may not see them every day and of course the resident Barn Owl which made an appearance every evening. Stirling is only about a 20 minute drive away with plenty to see and do there plenty of eating places to suit all tastes and of course Stirling Castle is not to be missed. George the owner made us very welcome and was always on call if there were any problems nothing it seemed was to much trouble for him day or night. The cottage was one of the best and most comfortable we have ever stayed in equipped with everything you could need. I highly recommend it and we will definitely be going back there one day.

    Barn Owl is a fantastic cottage set in tranquil surroundings. The owners have gone that extra mile to ensure that their cottages stand out from the rest, and having been to many cottages over the years, I can assure you that they have done a wonderful job. From the generous Welcome Pack to the fluffy bathrobe and slippers, you won't be disappointed if you stay here. The location is perfect for exploring Central Scotland and beyond. But the loch, literally on the doorstep, offers some wonderful walks, whether it's a gentle stroll along the shore or an easy climb to the top of the cliffs. Book it - you won't regret it!

    We had a lovely Easter weekend at this beautiful cottage. The cottage is very spacious and the welcome pack was very generous. Unfortunately, it rained most of the weekend which meant we couldn't go for a walk around the reservoir which would have been good. The honesty room with the huge selection of up to date DVD's made up for that and we made full use of it. Stirling is not far away and there is plenty to do there with lots of nice restaurants. We would definitely recommend this cottage and we will certainly try to be back.
