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 overlook the owners’ private 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 good boutique standard and provide excellent accommodation for couples or family groups. Everything is provided, a bottle of champagne, fresh fruit and flowers on arrival to lovely linen, towels, bathrobes - and even slippers! There is even an 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 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 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! It’s the perfect location for anglers, with fly fishing on the private loch and numerous other waters for game and coarse fishing very close by. 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 perfect place for the perfect holiday! Shops, pubs and restaurants 4 miles.

    This is most definitely the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. There was everything you could have possibly wanted and our girls loved the Honesty Room - a great idea ! The setting is beautiful and my husband enjoyed being able to fish. The welcome pack was much appreciated and enjoyed! We can't praise this accommodation enough !

    We travelled the short distance from Edinburgh to stay here and though it's only 10 minutes from the M9 it felt quiet and secluded. We have two under-5s and they loved the space, the sheep/cows in the fields next door and the 'honesty room' which was full of DVDs and toys etc. George made us very welcome and there were some nice touches in the house on arrival. We would definitely consider staying again.

    Had a wonderful time at Buzzard, George was a mine of information which was very helpful. Cottage was so very clean and a really good standard, felt just like home.

    A lovely place to stay. Nothing too much trouble for the owners and lovely little extras to greet you when you arrive.

    Lovely cottage, with a very homely feel. Very clean and tidy. The welcome pack was really great. Honesty room was fantastic, with lots of up to date DVDs for use. Rural location but close enough to Stirling that you could do all the touristy things. It was a shame the wifi was a bit intermittent, as with two almost teenagers this caused a few moans!

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; I'm glad you had a great holiday but am sorry to hear that the Wi-Fi was intermittent. It is normally very reliable but during your stay it was definitely playing up! I know because I work from home and good broadband connections are essential for my job. As we are in a rural location we have to use satellite broadband and once in a while it decides to go in the huff for no apparent reason. This can be highly fustrating for guests and ourselves but unfortunatley it's not something we can control. Hopefully this rare incident will not put you off visiting us again.

    A lovely place to stay, off the beaten track yet only four miles from Stirling. Beautiful cottages, thoughtfully decorated and equipped. Stunning location, so peaceful. I heartily recommend.

    This is a really wonderful cottage. Fantastic location for touring Scotland, yet beautiful spot for soaking up some peace and quiet. Cottage is clean, well equipped with lovely decor. There are so many thoughtful touches and George, the owner, is great. We don't tend to stay in the same place twice as there is so much choice in Scotland, but I think we would struggle to beat this.
