In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Overlooking a private 120-acre loch, this property is located just 4 miles away form the centre of Stirling.

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.

    Our second visit to this beautiful cottage with stunning views was every bit as fabulous as our first visit. We chose a different time of year to our last visit and had brilliant weather yet again. We will definately be back.

    The cottage is in a lovely setting with stunning views of the reservoir and cliffs. The cottage is easy to reach and only 10 minutes from Stirling and the nearest supermarket. George was welcoming and the cottage was well equipped, clean and had everything we needed. The addition of the welcome pack was a lovely surprise. The honesty room was great for borrowing films to watch in the evenings. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in Kestrel Cottage!

    The cottage was perfect for our needs,it was well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. We made use of the "honesty room" which is a great asset to the cottages.

    A fantastic property in a superb rural location. Stunning views all round the cottage. Welcome pack provided was excellent. The owners are lovely people who provided excellent help and advice throughout our stay. Lovely for those who want to walk, but also lots to visit on the tourist trail. Stirling is a really great central location. Edinburgh/Glasgow within easy reach, but plenty more jewels to see in this part of Scotland. Would not hesitate to go back there.

    Kestrel cottage was immaculate and much thought had gone into making it such a comfortable and cosy place to stay.such as an amazing welcome pack,most welcome bath robes and slippers,and we also enjoyed lighting the tea lights provided...making our evenings very relaxing!The view of the loch from our bed every morning made it a joy to wake up rain or shine!George and Morag have thought of most things to help you make the most of your holiday, the honesty room with DVDs maps etc was very welcomed also George was always available if needed to offer advice, and gave us useful information about getting to places..... Even helped us choose DVDs !!! For us it was a bonus to be able to take walks around the loch and mountains and see such amazing views just a few yards from our doorstep.If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in a place that has all the comfort of home.. then I can't recommend Kestrel cottage enough.
